[2018] How to play Pokemon GO without moving in Android ▞ No Root

As Pokémon Go continues its massive surge of international popularity, there has already been a wide variety of creative methods from various players who have tried different ways to beat Niantic’s gaming system Different Pokemon GO hacks have been released for each Smartphone platform. Even we have published Pokemon GO hacks for Rooted Android device. But with hardware specs bumping up and leaving reason for rooting your smartphone, not everyone would void their smartphone’s warranty for a game. So, today we’re here with Pokemon GO hack for Non-Rooted Android.

Non-Rooted Pokemon GO hack does not require any Root not even any Custom recovery. This method does work on any Android device. If you follow each step correctly, you’ll get Pokemon GO Android hack with Joystick (Arrow keys) to move along with location spoofing which means you can play Pokemon GO from anywhere in the world. The entire method is really simple to follow. Let’s just jump into the guide.

Don’t forget, the rooted hack has much more features & advantages over non-rooted Hack. This Guide is for devices running Android Marshmallow & above. If you are using Jellybean/KitKat/Lollipop, you can refer new Pokemon GO hack for Jellybean & above.

Developer: Niantic, Inc.
Price: Free+

2. Pokemon GO Location Spoofer Free


3. FGL Pro

Developer: LTP PRO LLC
Price: Free+


4. Pokemon GO Fake GPS Joystick & Routes Go

Currently this three are the only app that tends to work with all the security updates & allows you to change your location using a Joystick. You can try the free ones as it has worked for Galaxy S9’s latest security patch without any issue, but if that doesn’t work, you need to buy the 3rd app.

I know it’s a paid app now, but it’s better to spend few bucks rather than getting your Pokemon GO account banned. You can also try Fly GPS, but it does not have automated altitude and it rubber-bands a lot more, so it is prone to softbans.

Using Pokemon GO GPS Spoofing on a Non-Rooted Android device doesn’t allow you use the app to its full potential, due to which you will face Rubber Banding effect (You can avoid Rubber Banding effect by covering your phone in an Aluminium foil. This blocks the original GPS to track your current location) also you might face “GPS Signal not found” issue, but I have added solution for everything at the bottom of this article. Please try to read everything before asking any question.

Check if you need to Root?

Earlier we used to install a Fake GPS app and just enable the Mock location option and we were all set to spoof. But now, whenever the mock locations checkbox is enabled, Niantic detects you are spoofing on Android 5.1 and below. So, there’s no other option left but to unlock Bootloader, install TWRP and root to install the spoofing app as the System App as you won’t need to enable the mock location setting after that.

For Android 6.0 and above with Security patch  before March 2017, you can enable the Mock location option. If you still face the “Failed to detect location” error, This error is unlikely in the above configuration if your spoofing app is using the proper spoofing techniques. Just change the app you are using to an app without this error message, or change the spoofing app settings until this error message is gone. All spoofing apps phrase their configuration settings differently: some call it “no root” mode, others “indirect mocking”, “network spoofing” and so on. Just look in your fake gps app settings.

For Android 6.0 and above with Security patch after March 2018,Spoofing apps will require the spoofing app to be installed under system app to remove this error. To install an app as system app you will need an unlocked bootloader and TWRP. Root is optional. To do that, you can head to check our guide of Pokemon GO Hack by using Spoof as System App.

Tip: To check your Security patch version, Go to Settings> About Phone > See under Android Security Patch level.

How to setup Pokemon GO Fake GPS hack in Android (No Root)

Step 1. Download and install both the required Apps mentioned above.

Step 2. Go to Settings App > About Phone > Tap on build number 7 times (Until it says, you’re now a developer) to activate Developer options in your device.

Step 3. (For Android 6.0 and above with Security patch  before March 2017) Go to Settings > Developer options. Locate “Select mock location app” & select FakeGPS Route. 

Step 4. Again go to Settings > Location & set GPS mode to High accuracy (Use GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth or mobile data) to allow the FakeGPS app to function properly.


Step 5. Now launch Fake GPS Routes and enable your device’s GPS.

Step 6. Go to Fake GPS App’s Settings > Enable “Non-Root Mode”. Scroll below and also enable “Joystick”. (Avoid using the Joystick if you don’t want too many “GPS Signal not found”.

How to Enable Pokemon GO Fake GPS No Root Mode and JoystickStep 7. Point the red dot to any desired location and click on the “Play” button to enable the FakeGPS.

Step 8. To ensure that everything is working, check your notification Panel, you’ll find a Fake GPS notification. (The notification also has option to Enable/Disable Joystick on the go). Open Google Maps and check if your location is being shown as your selected location.

FakeGPS Route Pokemon GO Joystick HackStep 7. Now, once you start the Pokemon GO App, you’ll find yourself at the desired location. In this case I would consider you have not enabled Joystick (Recommended), to move forward, you can switch to FakeGPS App, move the point to the desired point and hit “Play” button. Switch to Pokemon GO and you’ll be see your character running to the location.

Pokemon GO Latest FakeGPS Working Android Hack without RootingFew Points to note while changing location:

  1. Don’t change locations too frequently (Like every 2-3 secs).
  2. Don’t jump too far so that the Pokemon GO servers find it fishy; which would result in soft ban.
  3. If you’re using Joystick, whenever you get “GPS Signal not found”, just move the Joystick & it the warning would disappear.
  4. If you keep getting “GPS Signal not found”, just close Pokemon GO and relaunch it.

While Pokemon GO started from the early days of release & the hacks remained the same while the App got updated many times with fixes to catch spoofers. While one might think spoofing would get their account banned, there are players who have been spoofing since months & jumping around different regions without any problem.

Earlier players in different communities concluded that Pokemon GO servers ban player by analysing their behaviour i.e Behavioral analysis. As per this, the servers keep a track of your location and open the alert flag if you have been jumping to different location in short time span. While this sounded sensible, many players have been spoofing randomly & have never faced any ban. So this Analysis theory was discarded.

Pokemon GO Fake GPS Hack Gym Raid Battles Latest Working

My understanding is that no perm bans were handed out for spoofing, just botting. Many players (like myself) stopped spoofing and went legit, others continued spoofing through the warnings because almost no bans were being handed out, and many others changed their setups in hopes of getting unshadow banned / remove warning (some were successful and some were not, but i did not see a great consensus on what spoofing methods worked better than others).

Some people here mentioned they have multiple accounts and spoof using the same phone. All they do is fighting one raid within their city (within 1 hour actual driving distance) which probably take 5 to 15 mins a day. And they login one account after another to fight the same gym RAID.

When you are under a softban you will not be able to see nearby mons, the mons will flee, the pokestops will not give you goodies and in some cases nothing will load on the map.

Did you know, Pokemon GO hack on iOS platform is lot more safer and easier than Android because of great support from different players and developers from the iOS community. Also, if you want, you can play Pokemon GO on PC using our latest method for iPhone and Windows/Mac Computer.

To avoid soft bans respect the teleportation cooldown chart.

 Pokemon GO GPS Hack Cool down period
Pokemon GO GPS Hack Cool down period

Some of their account received warning and some didn’t since they giving out RED warning. Pretty much the only explanation is either they don’t monitor all accounts around the same time (still use behavioral analysis). It is also possible that few of those accounts take longer to fight raid because need to wait for people (or take longer to throw the balls) and some don’t so the accounts that spend more time spoofing were able to get more GPS data to analysis. Either case, something to do with behavioral analysis.

If you think about it, for people that just spoof around the world to snip, it may only take them few seconds to a min to catch one pokemon and there is not enough data to analysis. But if you spoof few miles around locally but you spoof for more than 15 to 30 mins, they probably get enough of your GPS data to analysis your behavior.

Update  (June 2018):

A recent update, June 2018, of the hidden service called Google play services, which is a separate app and not the same as the Google Play Store (the Android equivalent to the AppStore), is causing issues with these modes. So far the best method is to uninstall updates.

1. Go to Android Settings – Device admin apps (use the settings search) and uncheck “Find My Device” (you can check it again after you are done). Do the same for Google Pay if it is available and selected.
2. Uninstall updates via the Play services info (Update) app. Open the app and navigate to the App Info page and press the menu (3 dots at top right) and choose uninstall updates.
3. Services will go back to an older date. You will have to repeat the process each time the services app updates itself.
4. If the Google play services uninstalls to a very old version find a newer version from May 2018 and install it over the default one (use “adb install -r” command)
Clear all data from the services app afterwards and verify the date of your Google play services using this helper app.(“STORAGE” -> “MANAGE SPACE” -> “CLEAR ALL DATA”)

Unfortunately, moving forward, the only effective way to work around these limitations will be to enable Expert mode which involves either rooting with Magisk and hiding root or using twrp custom recovery – modify the app to be a system/priv-app.


1. What is Spoofing?
Spoofing is when you use a GPS relocation app or service to make your phone think you are somewhere else other than where you really are. Basically, you can catch Pokémon from all around the world and participate in events and features that are not available in your area by setting your location to any area you wish.

2. Error while Entering Raid battles:
A. Enter the Gym and click on Battle. Select your Pokemons and let the timer reach start. As soon as the timer reaches 10 secs (Before starting the match), switch to the Hack, Click on the “Stop” icon and again click “Start”. This should fix the issue easily.

3. Will it work with my device with latest Android Security Patch as of now, its Aug 2017 patch?
A. Yes! This hack works with all the security updates. Just avoid using the Joystick if you don’t want to get banned. Jump to different locations from the hack.

4. I’m still not able to play, I don’t want to buy this App or I want a easier method:
A. If you’re still not able to play or annoyed by this procedure, it’s better to downgrade your device to below March Security 2017 update. This will allow you to use Spoofing apps without any problem.

5. I don’t want to downgrade my phone nor do I want to root my phone:
A. Well, a new guide is on its way. Bookmark this page and check back in a day.

6. Pokemon not showing, Soft ban?
A. The 40-spin for pokestop 40-throw pokeballs has been patched it won’t work anymore. So if you want to snipe, or teleport follow the cool down chart or wait 2 hrs as General Rule. Spinning a Pokestop 40 times to un-ban your account no longer works.

7. Rubber banding, crazy jumps?
A. As per recent findings, Google Play Services latest update is the reason for random rubber  banding effects. If your google play services version is after January 2018 it is most likely causing the issue so you have to downgrade. To revert to stock Google Play Services unrooted you need to deactivate “find my device” under Android Settings -Security & location and then go to Apps – Google Play services – locate the menu button top right and select “Uninstall updates”. Do not update the Play services if prompted.

8. GPS Signal not found:
This is a harmless error. The error basically means that the game is not able to receive your location. The error is shown to legit users as well.  All spoofers will receive this error when their spoofing app loses the ability to spoof. This is a common problem/error on phones without root.

When you see this error on unrooted phones reload your spoofing position and the error will go away.

Here are few examples with latest Security Patch:

1. Moto Z Play Android 7.1.1 (Security patch – 1 August 2017)

2. Samsung S8 Android 7.0.1 (Security Patch – August 2017)

3. Samsung Galaxy S8+ Verizon (Security Patch – August 2017)

4. Redmi 3S with Android 6.0.1 (Security patch – April 2017)

5. Samsung S8+/S8 Android 7.0 with April 2017

Let me put this very straight, Spoofing for Android is difficult as compared to iOS Hack. In Android  you will get many “GPS Signal Not Found” messages, but it will go away, as soon as you switch to the hack and change your location.

Note: In order to enjoy uninterrupted spoofing without worrying about your getting banned, I would suggest you to perform “temporary root & install this App. Everything is explained in our Pokemon GO Hack (Root) article. The advantage of this root is, your warranty won’t be void as we will show you how to restore your device back to normal so that your device remains completely safe!

You can level up easily & faster using this. If you live in small town or somewhere where there’s not much of Pokemon, this hack could be very beneficial & easy to use. This hack is for those who don’t want to root their device. Don’t forget, rooted hack has much more features & advantages over non-rooted Hack. But don’t worry! The app developer may come up with lot more features in Non-rooted version too.

  • Kevin South says:

    Samsung s7 I got it to work from watching last video. You don’t use joystick on pokemon app, go back to fake gps. Move, then open google maps, confirm then open pokemon and you will see yourself move to new location. Its a process but it works in my town. Nothing works outside of my town yet.

  • Kevin South says:

    I got app working but it only works in my own town. I get kicked out of raids before they begin. All Pokemon flee after the first ball and I have not caught a single one yet. All the poke stops spin but give no feed back or items. In my own town this works. I can do poke stops, catch pokemon and put my pokemon into gyms. I have not tried the raids yet to see if I get kicked out here locally.

    Does your software have a limit on range? I can walk around fine but I can’t do anything.

  • Kevin South says:

    Why do none of these videos have anyone explaining each step and what and where they are going to make setting changes? The video is hard to follow and hard to tell what is being done.

    How do you do the temporary root on samsung s7?

  • Kelvin Prowel says:

    As of today, September 19, 2017 in Philippines. This guide is working as intended, sometimes the game will start without any gyms or pokemons but you just have to restart the game. The only real problem is the rubber-banding.

    Note: I basically followed everything that’s written here and didn’t enable the joystick as recommended, I have not had the “no GPS detected” issue.

    Unit: Samsung galaxy s8
    android version 7.0
    security patch level: Aug. 1, 2017

    • Thanks for sharing your experience. To fix Rubber-banding, you can either cover your device in foil to stop your Phone’s GPS to receive signals from the Satellites. Let me know your experience after using the foil. Thanks! 🙂

      • Kelvin Prowel says:


        So I tried this guide with the aluminum foil covering the entire back and around my phone and the trick worked! But, while it doesn’t snap me back to my real location it now says “no GPS detected” after a while. restarting will fix this but the problem occurs every time which makes this good for catching pokemon (caught a few region exclusives already, YAY!) but not so good for raids/gym battle.

        • Kelvin Prowel says:

          Update (Sept. 27, 2017 Philippines)

          Upon further testing I found out that the foil trick has no merit.

          My avatar will snap back to my real location if I spoof to a location close to my real one. the farther away I spoof the less frequent the rubber-banding will be. If I spoof to a distance far enough that I don’t rubber-band (ie. another country) then i will get the “no GPS detected” error instead of snapping back to my real location.

  • Danniel Danniel says:

    So it’s doesn’t work anymore?

  • Enjoygamespc s says:

  • Arne Slabbinck says:

    Since March 2017 update you can’t spoof with the developer’s option to choose a mock location. At least not with the app this article mentions.
    I did manage to spoof with this app: Fake GPS Joystick & Routes Go – as of late august 2017. ( *link* )
    It’s a paying app, i wouldn’t say it’s worth the 3,99 if you’re not rooting your phone, since it only works sometimes with bad gps connection on my OnePlus 3T.
    I’m still trying to look to move it as a system app without it disapearing after unroot..

  • RootingN00b says:

  • J Stewart says:

    Still doesn’t work. Tried on several different makes. All give the failed to detect location error and no stops, no gyms, no mons.

  • DK says:

    Just an FYI to all failing to do this: It’s not the app / game that’s preventing it. It’s the Android OS Update that started rolling out in Nov 2016. It exposes the setting of “Allow Mock Location” to 3rd party apps – meaning Pokemon Go can see when you’re doing it and won’t let it work. To be able to use this you must roll back your Android OS to the August 2016 release (or earlier) for your device. Only by disabling (removing) the security update can one still spoof.

      Are you getting “failed to detect location” error. If yes than it is because your redmi note 4 is updated one and in newer updated they’ve done something terrible. You have to downgrade your phone to earlier version MIUI 8.1, your current version must be MIUI 8.2 or more latest.

    If you spent that amount of money, you’re simple and plain stupid. No spoofer can get your money back…

  • Jack Skellington says:

    That sounds like a temporary soft ban

  • It’s because of the new security patch pushed by Google. It doesn’t allow GPS spoofing.

    Can it be done with android 5.0.1

    Anybody know of any fixes?

    • Guess you got the latest Security patch which disables GPS spoofing.

      • Michael says:

        That is a incorrect statement. The GPS spoofing hasn’t been disabled. What is happening is that the developers of the app have found a way to identify that your using a mock location and has implemented a temporary fix. It’s only a matter of time before people figure out how to disable it but will probably leave non-root users out of the solution.

  • Looks like, you got soft banned.

    Failed to detect location? Anyway to fix this? I am running Samsung S7 with Android 7.0

    I have updated my android to 7.0 and since then fly GPS doesn’t work anymore….I try to follow the above and deleted my fly GPS and reinstall it still popped out failed to detect location error message…Pls advice how to solve this issue.

  • Michael says:

    I’m on a galaxy S7 and the programs work fine, but frequently I keep getting sent back to my real location for a couple of seconds, then where I’m spoofed too. Sometimes I happens enough to get a soft ban, sometimes I don’t have it for 30minutes to an hour. Any way to fix this?

  • Mayco Garcia says:

    I used it yesterday, I followed every step like describe above and I had no problem. At the first time worked perfectly, but then, at the second location what I choosed I didn’t can catched any Pokemon, I tossed a pokeball, the Pokemon broke it and then disappeared and that was what happened with all the Pokemon I tried to catch later. Sorry for my English, I’m a Spanish speaker

      @ ->bizzle got it working on Samsung Galaxy Tablets A but I mostly used MockGps App works just fiine but it does glitch location quite few times but its best one i know for sure that works but I tell you how i done it
      #1 Erased Factory Data (yes Erased Everything to be come like a new phone or tablet
      #2 After Erase you will see Message Welcome! on Samsung Screen there there is Three Options
      English(united States) English (Canada) English (United Kingdom) (Do Not Choose English United States Only Choose Between English Canada Or United Kingdom English next you have enter the wifi stuff after its finished after that the load screen will take few minutes then click next after wifi is connected agree to everything after that loading screen comes up sign on your google accept everything including setup payment chose no thanks continue untll Date And time you want to changed it to Location to where just choose what time like Los Angeles time after its finished the hole screen will load up now after that go to Google playstore Download MockGps 1st on Google store then before you open the Pokemon Go Before it Open MockGps First and set the Mock location where you want to teleport go to (like if you choose English-UK you should be freely catch any pokemon that lives in Currently in UK or Canada ) since you put your phone in that setting from the startup after that mark the location then click play now Open the Pokemon Go Enter everything you should be at your locations automatically for little while so you may catch the pokemon where ever its at including the Pokestop to claim as well but there is a small risk though if you used the app but catch the ones you want but if you want to catch any pokemon you want i know it works on Tablets on Samsung Hopefull that helps i am not positive on Android Cellphones it may work on some devices this app with pokemon go app but there might be some not your welcome to try it out for your self usually you can stay in MockGps about close to 5-8 minutes so you can freely catch least some out of USA Pokemon but i do not know for sure if it works on older models tablets it could possible work but not sure your may welcome to try it i hope it helps have a great day catching

        Any way to fix the glitch where the game randomly sets you back at your real GPS location? I use galaxy s7 and this works but keeps randomly sending me back to my real location causing a Softbank every so often.

  • David Marfisi says:

    just to throw my 2 cents in also, same problems after upgrade to 7.0 today, “failed to detect location” Samsung S7 edge from At&t worked perfect prior to android update today.

  • Peter C says:

    Using a LG V20 here with Android 7.0. Just downloaded this morning and thought I’d give it a try. It was working for a while but then I started changing locations and I guess I got the soft ban? Because it won’t allow me to catch or interact. I then switched off the device and restarted again, it is working fine right now. So I guess if we don’t do any jumps or sudden location change without turning off the app first, it should be fine.

  • Yanr Jardofa says:

    have: galaxy s4 – fly gps – pokemon go (version 0.59.1) and mock location on
    the game shows me the fake area but say “location not found” and shows me no pokestop+pokemon
    any idea or versions to fix?
    need help pls

  • Not tried this app, but I want to try this. I need to install the pokemon go app again since I already deleted it, but my account is still working.

  • Dat boi says:

    Working for me also. Htc 10. Running 7.1. Just downloaded it today. Doesn’t work if location setting it set to “battery saving” but it works on “device only” and “high accuracy”

    It does jump aaalllllllllll the time, as with all these non root methods, so traveling more than a few miles is completely out of the question. Sometimes it’s so bad I don’t even bother playing because I can’t go more than three seconds without jumping. You’ll get the soft ban in the first couple seconds for sure if you try and change states or even cities.

    Best option is definitely to find a 6.x stock rom and follow instructions for systemless root. Then get systemless exposed. It works with magisk only, the 11.6 version to be exact. Make sure when you start TWRP for the first time you don’t swipe to allow read/write of system partition and you’re golden.

    IPhone users can get tutu app and install a hacked version of the actual game which gives you joystick, location choosing and even shows the pokemons stats before catching. For systemless root android user, the xposed module “snorlax” will give those same benefits. Albeit after much more work.

  • Michael Arsenault says:

    Anyone claiming it still works as of new 7.0 or 7.1 is either lying or it hasn’t caught up yet… but it will STOP working and you’ll be without and so far my research points to the ROOTING method to also be compromised. It’s looking a lot like android and Google has beaten us… FOR NOW.

        Hey buddy you are soft banned by niantic. I will last for an hour or
        two. By the way if you wanna solve it without wasting time then just do
        the following—
        1. Go to your desired location and start the joystick
        2. Start Pokemon Go
        3. Visit a pokestop
        4. Spin the pokestop. Come back. Again click it and spin it. then come
        back and again click it and spin it. Repeat this steps about 40-50
        times. After that you get the usual pokeballs from the pokestop the the
        bann will be removed and you can play and catch pokemon in that location

        Remenber to use a single pokestop for this process.
        You need to repeat the whole process whenever you change location again.

  • Goku says:

    I’ve been using Fake Gps joystick for a couple of months now and it’s been working fine, with the occasional soft ban because of rubber banding. But now I’m having a lot of problems with it, a lot more than I ever used to. It all started a few days ago after my Samsung Galaxy 7 edge forced a “Samsung Update”. Now the mock location rubberbands non stop and males it impossible to play with the joystick. I’ve made sure all my settings were the same as the were before and so far I haven’t found anything different with this new update. So does anyone have an idea about what is going on with this app or is it possible that it’s the update that’s causing this issue for me?

    Hi, my android version is 5.1, so in the mock location option it doenst show any app to select, only the option to allow it. So when i open the game ir appears the message “failed to detect location” and do not work. After i go back this option, the game works normally. Do you have any solution without root?

  • Thresh says:

    Whoa…. so this worked for me. Not sure what the jumping people are talking about is, but I haven’t done it in the 10 mins using it. I notice that there’s a speed control for how fast you go.

    I keep it at 1, just so I can avoid any trouble. PLUS Make sure you remember where you originally left off [where your gps would put you in real life]. I believe these are safe ways to spoof. Dev am I right?

    • You might have got soft banned. In order to get unbanned, Go back to your original location. Now walk to a pokestop, spin it and close it. You won’t be getting any rewards from it, however, doing so up to 40 times (or until you finally receive the rewards) will remove your soft ban.

  • “Failed to detect location” is because of the Pokemon GO servers detecting your hack. You can play with GPS settings to overcome this.

  • Try with “Device only”

  • There’s nothing like that. It depends on the time period between soft bans. If you get banned frequently, it alerts the systems. Try to make things look as natural as possible.

  • Try changing GPS setting. Pokemon GO servers are going too smart this days.

    • Siren says:

      When I changed to ‘Battery Saving’ and GPS is turned off, ‘Failed to detect location’ error switches off… But the App does not work.

    • You are soft banned.

      If you suspect you’ve been soft banned, there is a very simple way to check. Basically, the way the soft ban works is that ANY pokemon you’re trying to catch will escape your ball (regardless of the ball type or berries used) and will instantly flee as well, thus being unable to catch any pokemon while soft banned.

      Another soft ban symptom is that you can’t loot anything from pokestops, even though you’re actually spinning the circle; you won’t get any rewards, as well as being unable to win any gym fights.

      • Jillian says:

        I’m having the same problem. I’ll be able to catch a handful of pokemon, and then it’s as if it figures out I’m not where I should be. Is there a different app that might work better, or did developers figure out this trick and it’s no longer going to work? I’ve spun pokestops for half an hour and still nothing.

  • JJ says:

    2days ago working, yesterday onwork no working. Reason?

  • Johnnybravo says:

    how do i get it to stop jumping me from the spoofed location to my real location?

  • Shawn Frost says:

    I’m getting excessive data usage when I have fake gps go running. It wasn’t this way about a month ago but for some reason starting a month ago I’ve been steadily watching my data go up just when that app is running. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it and nothing new. Any suggestions or could it be my phone? I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

    • Fusioncat WingBliss says:

      HI, I can confirm Shawn is correct. I have been monitoring my data usage for the past 3 days after my data usage burst (Android OS data). I have tried everything from turning off backup sync, background data, disallowing services from accessing internet etc and I can now replicate the issue. Can anyone advice us? Thank you.

  • Jien Chan says:

    Any solutions for Android Jelly bean ? It is nothing for me to choose in the “Select mock location app” section.

  • Izumi_thenerd says:

    Used the app on 16th of Feb 2017. Works like a charm, no problems yet, I choose to walk at the speed of 1 just for precaution. Caught 15 in like 10 minutes….Thanks @devslab:disqus

  • Siddhartha Khan says:

    whenever i try to join through fake gps app..it sign out. Even after trying to log in..its doesn’t seems to work..

  • DigiGirlFL says:

    I can NOT get it to work! I’ve gone through every step from start to finish 4x… every single time I launch the game it shows me at home, but the GPS joystick app shows me where I want the game to go!
    I’m on stock Note 5.

  • Nathan says:

    Just got a Samsung s7. Every time I click on a pokemon the app closes. Help. Worked great on my LG. I can still hit stops, gyMs and get credit for distance walked

  • Kevin Kennedy says:

    This morning it stopped working. PoGo says unable to determine location as if I had no location services on at all. Works fine if i turn off FakeGPS. I am using a Moto Z Force.

  • Xumarice says:

    Fake GPS go don’t work in root and non-root. With root it does nothing, with non-root (mock location enabled) I get fail to detect location error.

  • Mr neko says:

    I think that I got a soft ban what should I do?

    • caleb imel says:

      I don’t think this is a soft ban. I have tried it on several accounts and I have had this issue. But I’ll use my buddy’s phone and it works fine. He had this issue originally as well but fixed it just doesn’t know how.

  • Might be because of the new Pokemon GO update.

  • Try make things look natural. Jumping too fast or moving too fast alerts the servers.

  • You’re using Android Lollipop, this method works with Marshmallow & above.

  • s.midul asan says:

    but for me there is mock location on or off and not the mock location app

  • Padmé says:

    I was soft banned in 2 minutes on both my accounts (one google and one pokémons training club). :/

  • kf says:

    awesome app! just one question tho, recently I realise the search function returns a “invalid value” whatever I put in (I made sure spelling is right). Not sure what’s wrong as it used to work.

  • Phillip Davidson says:

    Can’t catch pokes as soon as I throw ball the game stops.Can hit gyms and stops

    • caleb imel says:

      Make sure you allowed access to your photos. I was having this issue as well. Once I allowed access it started working.

  • It’s because of Niantic updates & Google Maps trying to locate your real location. Looking some ways to fix this. 🙂

    How to select mock location app in android marshmallow ?

  • flatch hippo says:

    I’ve been running this for a while now, works great. Lately its been rubber banding more. Is that due to Ninantic updates or can I do something to help with that?

  • The same way as mentioned above.

  • Timonlee says:

    The app is brilliant. Installed easily. The directions were easy to follow. Took a few minutes to learn the joystick. Now I’m happily trotting around my little world catching pokemon and spinning stops.

  • Pierre-Luc Savoie says:

    i don’t know if it still work, but last summer, to remove the soft ban you had to flip 40 times the same pokestop.

  • Pierre-Luc Savoie says:

    Any way doing it with an iPhone 6s ???

  • Jeremiah Chism says:

    I can get the spoof to work and see pokemon but every pokemon I get into a ball breaks out and runs away. Never get a chance to throw more than one ball.

  • George Redbeard says:

    GPS spoof works (rubber banding still, have not tried foil) I can walk, i can set routes, I can even collect pokestops. But the second I click on a pokemon to catch it, game crashes. Can not catch ANYTHING. (On marshmallow).

  • Version 6.0.1 is Android Marshmallow, which means your device is set for this hack. Getting “GPS signal not found” might be because of Pokemon GO servers. Try setting GPS to “Device only” or “High accuracy” whichever works.

  • asif idtell says:

    Does it still work ? I had it going 24 hrs ago, but now all I get is “GPS signal not found”. I have turned GPS off and on, to no avail.
    also, I don’t know if im running lollipop or honeycomb or what, I have version 6.0.1

  • Rodrigo Torres says:

    Will using the fake gps app interfere with my my real location when I’m not playing pokemon go? In other words, can I still use my maps ie. Google maps like I normally would?

  • I guess it worked for you & you posted the “Working” comment here. Thanks! 🙂

  • Wrap your device in a foil paper & play. It’s the only solution as of now!

  • Sure will. Thanks for your kind feedback! 🙂

  • Try to act as natural as possible. Because of too many features we end up try all those teleport & stuffs. Result: Ban! 8-|

    • Zer0.exe says:

      yeah no kidding! I was overly ambitious so that’s on me.

      There’s a super easy to use tool called “quickspin” that can unban softbans instantly-ish (can take 1-2 minutes). It even sets your last “legal” location wherever you want, so you can start the game up there (say, the striped for example) and it won’t softban you.

  • yorkgo says:

    I’m running android 7.0. i can spoof to the desired places, but after like 3 or so minutes, i get teleported back to my current locations. Any way to fix this.

  • John says:

    Will this work with the most recent pokemon go update? Looking at the reviews of the app in the google play store it looks like everyone is having issues with it.

  • wbpwns says:

    Can you post a tutorial for no root lollipop users? I don’t have an upgrade to marshmallow and I don’t want to use a rom (yet). My phone is less than a year and I still have warranty. Please

  • Zer0.exe says:

    Works perfectly! I did notice the rubber band effect, but what I’m going to do is just close the app as soon as I catch what I want.

    Edit: Gat dangit I got soft banned. I got a little ambitious and tried to walk all over. Lesson learned, Niantic!

  • simon verheire says:

    I got soffed banned, i even walked to the place where i was catching and got soft banned at that place. What im i doing wrong ? bad internet connection ?

  • Pokemon GO has started soft banning accounts that catch Pokemon while driving. Because of all the accidents. Running too fast, would be the same.

    • Amit Sharma says:

      Originally my phone is shipped with Kitkat by the manufacturer. Will this hack then work if I install a custom rom on my phone, say RR Marshmallow?

  • Update to Marshmallow. This method only works with marshmallow & above.

  • Its because of the Pokemon GO servers & Google’s GPS service.

  • joshua says:

    its failed to detect location ;(

  • Thomas says:

    I have lollipop and I can’t select mock app

  • vasu says:

    Any hack for android lollipop pls no tutu app only ana only any GPS app

  • Hoosier Dad says:

    My phone rubberbands but I don’t get soft banned as long as I stay within a few miles of my real location. Going into the settings for Fake GPS and setting the update interval as low as possible without causing P-Go to give GPS errors seems to help reduce rubberbanding.

    I disagree with article’s suggestion to avoid running too fast. P-Go expects people will have app open in a moving car and this would be no different. I only get soft banned when my location jumps more than a few miles.

  • Because the guide is for Marshmallow & above devices.

  • Because the guide is for Marshmallow & above devices.

  • Someone suggested to wrap foil paper around phone to fix the rubberband effect.

    • Zell says:

      I followed this suggestion. For 2 weeks of playing, going from country to country I have not experienced any “rubberband effect.” Thanks devs-lab for this app. Hope you could always be 2 steps ahead of niantic.

  • Softban. Spin pokeballs at any gym for 30 times. You will be unbanned.

  • This option was introduced from Android marshmallow & above. Due to which, this method works only with Marshmallow & above.

  • Abir Ghosh says:

    I cant select mock location app in my phone

  • Amit Sharma says:

  • robert says:

    I keep getting soft banned every time I play. After waiting 8-12 hours, I will start in san francisco (I live in Colorado) and the app flashes back and forth from my current location and san francisco and eventually usually within 30 minutes, I get soft banned. Help?

    • David Fletcher says:

      The same thing happens to me. Can you please suggest another option than foil paper? What’s the root cause of the “rubberband effect?” Thanks

  • Soutrik Mukherjee says:

    Mine is android 4.4 , i don’t have “select mock location app” in my developer options, only a option saying “allow mock location app” , I’ve selected it and also using only gps to determine my position but it’s still saying “failed to determine location”

    Hey that’s a soft ban

  • Skywalker26 says:

    So I recently just download all of this on a galaxy S5. I’m only running it on wifi due to the galaxy being a t mobile done my att SIM card won’t work. I can’t get anything to pop up, just says “can’t detect location” what am I doing wrong?

  • randy martinez says:

    How can you get rid of the soft ban? I’ve been encountering this issue.

  • Britt says:

    Hi. I was able to jump into another area but no Pokestops or Pokémon were on the map. I was wondering if it was not able to be used on a Samsung Galaxy 4? I went through everything again but still it allowed me to walk but no sightings or anything appeared in every park or landmark.

    My Android Version is 5.0.1

    It also comes up with the Failed to Detect Location error. I’m either missing something of my phone may not be compatible

  • Android version? Did you try making GPS mode to “Device only/GPS only”?

  • You can jump to countries but you just gotta make it look natural. Suppose you live in Japan & you want to jump to Australia. Consider, an International flight takes around 24hrs to reach Aus. Just don’t play Pokemon GO for 24hrs & don’t ON the GPS. After 24hrs, jump to Australia. While returning, do the same. I guess Pokemon GO won’t ban passengers using a plane. I hope you got my point. Enjoy! 🙂

  • In the Fake GPS app, there’re tones of options. Try everything 🙂

  • Did you jump too far while testing the Joystick? Most people get so excited when the joystick works that they jump between countries & face soft ban.

  • GamerGuy says:

    I can’t get any pokemon or pokestops. I followed the instructions exactly but all it dod was waste my pokeballs

  • randy martinez says:

    How can you walk faster? the joystick that comes out makes my player walk extremely slow

    • Nathaniel Harvey says:

      Under the joystick, there’s a speed slider (latest joystick update) Don’t go past 7 otherwise Pokémon GO will think you’re driving

  • Mike Brown says:

    Is there anyway to go to another country like Australia using this tool, i select my location and set a location in australia thinking i can let my phone get there by traveling instead of jumping to that location. But since its an island it does not seem to want to bring my there since there is no direct route via land. Or is there a way to catch something in another country without getting softbanned?

  • BrazilianTrainer says:

    I am getting the “Failed to Detect Location” error, it is a non rooted phone. Any ideas?

  • slimstainless says:

    Got it to work fine..except for the fact that you can not catch any pokemon they all run away after breaking out of the first poke ball also can not get anymore poke stops

  • Rooting it is the only option as of now!

  • Raj says:

    I’m not able to select the fake gps app in mock gps selection option in YU yuphoria

  • Looks like, it’s the only solution now! Thanks! 😉

  • Please hide Root from Pokemon GO app.

  • Or maybe we might come with some other ways. 😛

  • Hey,
    I know, some people always want to play clean. Basically the risk factor only arises when you start jumping to locations. If you just use the Joystick and walk around, I bet you won’t get banned. The Servers only know about cheats when you cover long distance in short period of time. Just try to make everything look natural. Till now I have not faced any softban/permanent ban because I try to use the joystick more. Try to walk to Pokestops using the Joystick rather jumping directly. Hope this helps! 🙂

  • It works. You might be using the app too much.

  • Might be a softban. Spin Pokeballs near a GYM for some time.

  • It isn’t like that. Try playing the game in normal mode for some time. Due to frequent rubberbanding, systems tend to show such errors.

  • Yes, it’s OK. Just try to act as normal as you can in the game. Calculate average time required to cover the distance. Jump after the calculated time.

  • Different devices, different names. Anyways, thanks for informing! Cheers! 🙂

  • That’s how Pokemon GO servers are coded to react to cheats. Currently there’s no permanent fix. Just few fix like keep the app closed for a while or roam around with normal speed.

  • Try changing GPS setting. If you have kept to “High accuracy”, make it “Device only” & vice versa. This is the only solution, I have come across.

  • I have mentioned, how to hide Root from Pokemon GO app.

  • It works fine with my OP3.

    Hi i have done your method..but after installing exposed installers i cant sign in my game plz help..

  • Imagine bear says:

    Thanks for the share. It works well at first, but then I also encounter the same problem like the others in this thread, of going back to my original location every few minutes. I already changed the gps settings to “gps only”. I thought okay, maybe I’ll get soft banned, no big deal, but then I got the captcha “I’m not a robot” thing. It gets me thinkng maybe it’s not so safe now that Niantic has already get rid of the bots, maybe they’re now targetting the gps spoofers. So in the meantime, i think i’m gonna play the real way 😐

  • Dude says:

    Still Working fine?
    No bans?

  • Jaimee W says:

    I haven’t downloaded any spoofing apps yet because I really don’t want to get banned (I’ve actually bought Pokeballs a couple times). The problem is I am unable to get out of the house much so it’s hard to play the game. I live less than a mile from 2 Pokéstops and honestly I just want to make it easier for me to access them. I don’t even want to spoof out of state or far away… just down the street. How high is my risk of getting banned if I use the suggested apps but stay within a short radius?

  • lotje says:

    i get spawned to the location i selected but it still says failed to detect location and it doesn’t show any pokestops or pokemon

  • MrWolf says:

    Also getting the “Failed to Detect Location” msg. The joystick works, but not showing any stops. Just walking on a plain may.

  • rigu10 says:

    i tried it today but it doesn’t work… it says something like “impossible identifying location” (it’s a traslation from my language) and i can’t see any pokemon, pokestops or gyms, so i suppose i got softbanned… btw the problem could be that in the developer settings screen i can’t find “Select mock location app”, but only “allow fake location” that i turned on

    So it was working fine with the exception of annoying rubberbanding up until today and now pogo says unable to detect location whever I’m running fake gps go. I noticed my little location icon disapears at the top of the screen when I hit stsrt on fake gps go. I’ve tried changing location settings and mock location settings in different combinations to no avail. Seems like pogos new years update has block us spoofers again.

  • Thiyagu says:

    I have used gps spoofing from 27/12/16 7pm to 28/12/16 10:35 pm. Now, I am unable to catch any pokemon even @ cp 10. Unable to collect any items from pokestop.
    I uninstalled gps spoofing and my gps working fine in game.
    Is it soft ban or permanent ban?if it is soft ban, How long it will takes?

    • They don’t do a permanent ban so easily. It might be soft ban, to remove Soft ban
      1. Go to a nearest Poke Stop; walk to it and select it.
      2. On your mobile screen there is a circle, as you already know it. Spin the circle. As your account is soft-banned so you won’t get anything.
      3. Spin it 40 times to get unbanned.

      • Xavier says:

  • Elaine Ell says:

    Hi, any idea how to fix the glitch when i get switched to my current location from spoof location and back? I tried “gps only” solution, but it doesn’t work.

    • Don’t jump too fast in short period. Like if you cover 20kms in 2-3mins, its a clear indication of hack. Whereas if you cover 4kms every 2mins, it looks natural. Try keeping the GPS setting to “High accuracy” if the “Device only” is not working. We just can’t fix few things as its a server’s way to prevent hacks. Hope you get my point. Cheers! Enjoy catching pokemon! 🙂

  • Ben Duval says:

    How do I stop the rubber banding. I get soft banned multiple times . It’s irritating. I can’t even walk for a good distance without it going back to my real location and back to the fake one and so on. I’m running Android 6.0 fly GPS + joystick. I can’t find any answers online .

    Works really well although I have the same issue as others have said, every few minutes it spoofs me back to my actual location for a couple of seconds then I go back to where I wish to be.

      Same problem

      • Kou V says:

        Same issue here, I was only spoofing to a few pokestops about 1 block away from my home and was eventually soft banned for 30 minutes. The only thing that could trigger this was the constant running back and forth to my home from the pokestops. Same thing happens with any GPS mode on my Android 7 Moto Z, the character keeps running back and forth between spoofed and actual location, and even in Airplane/wifi only mode. I’ve disabled the app to avoid a permaban.

    • Davvy says:

      One note to the developer. While using the Fake GPS, every now and then approx every 5mins to 10mins it switched from the fake location and my real location then back to fake location. This has caused me to get several i mean a lot of soft ban. Is there a setting that I should use?

  • LG G3, Android version?

  • Unless you don’t jump too far or jump too frequently. Try make it look as natural as possible.

    • Joshua Barker says:

      Difficult not to jump too far or too frequently when the app is glitchy and constantly teleports you back to your actual GPS location.

  • Its for Android M & above.

  • Well, you can see 70-80% people saying, it works. Everyone can’t be a fool? Any app is not authorized to check what setting your Phone is using unless you have root access. It would be lot better if you understand what you’re saying before doing so. Thanks for visiting.

    • lordinario says:

      Devs, are you 100% sure of needing root for it?
      I mean, that it’s not possible for pokemon go, just take a look and see if the Mock Locations app has some value or None.
      Maybe a permission allowing it?
      Seems too overkill for Android to request root just to check a value there.

  • Make GPS setting to “device only”.

  • Glad to know! Happy spoofing! 😀

  • Make GPS setting to “Device only”.

  • Allow screen overlay for GPS app.

    I’m using Android version 4.4.2 and it’s not showing me the option to select mock location app. Am I doing something wrong or do I need a newer not version of Android?

  • Xcom78 says:

    The reason why this hack will not work is because Pokemon Go now knows when you turn on Mock Locations in your cellphone/tablets. These guys are just click baiting you for views.

  • Mark says:

    this just says gps not found using on a note 5 any advice?

  • capt. Jean-Luc Picard says:

    Tryed everything from comments but still it says “Failed to detect location”, I am using Lollipop 5.0

  • Syed Ansaar says:

    hey there, I have done as u said and now I have that joystick . But now when I launch pokemon go it says “failed to detect location” and I am swap in a place not familiar to me and there are no pokestops and gyms over there . What should I do plz suggest.

  • Sûsåñtã says:

    There is no option to select mock locations app.

  • BlahBlahBlah says:

    This works perfectly! I did get soft banned on my first try because I went to another town but I’ve been using my other account for the past 2 hrs or so while I’ve been at work and it’s great! I can hit all the PokeStops up and down main street while I’m at work or just wander around to hatch eggs and get buddy eggs. Awesome! Thank you!

  • Prateek says:

    Can you please tell me how to get back to normal?

  • Yaoming Ha says:

    is the guide up to date now?

  • AskQuest says:

    any good one for android 5.1?

  • Ethan Payne says:

    First off, thanks for taking the time to do this guide.

    Andriod 6.0 getting “Failed to detect location.”
    IT WORKS in so much as I apear at the fake location I set on the map and the joy stick moves me around but pokemon still says it cant detect my location.

    Anybody found a fix fir this? I deleted all app cache but no joy.

    The fake gps location works but it looks like pokemon can tell it is a fake.

  • Roy Kim says:

    there is a message “failed to detect location” error, so can’t play pokemon.

  • elisabetta says:

    I don’t have mock location

  • The previous app got removed. Will update the images ASAP.

  • Clear data of both the app.

  • Nope. Using it won’t get your banned unless you get too excited and jump too far in very short time periods.

  • It’s strange. It works fine in my 6P.

  • Roy Kim says:

    Staring this app. and launch Pokemon, pop-up window says “screen overlay detected” and requested to setup to do disable. If I don’t change and continue to launch pokemon, can’t play pokemon for GPS not found.

  • Luca Natali says:

    in the developer options there isn’t “Select mock location app” but only “activate mock locations” and then when i open pokemon go says “gps not found”. How to fix?

  • Sam Morton says:

    Works. Thanks!

  • timewarrior66 says:

    Just stumbled on this, and wondering how ling some users have gone and if any were permabanned. I went through comments and checked out what some were saying. I actually have mine set to start from where i live and walk at the slowest speed. So far i was able to catch at least one pokemanz, didnt get to a stop to test tgose but im afraid of getting a ban after all the time ive put in. I might be overthinking things and what not but they are valid concerns.

  • Ni says:

    When I open pokemon go it keeps saying “GPS signal not found” and the location does not sync with the fakejoystick location

  • Aaron says:

    keep having ‘failed to detect location’ after login to pokemon go. But after disable mock location will revert back to actual location.

  • Dan McLeod says:

    Or you could try actually leaving your house and walking around.

  • Toto says:

    Does it work on oppo f1s?

  • Queen Lula the Ginihog says:

    Very confused. App looking different than one in explanation.

  • disqus_5SbX9n3Kb2 says:

    Im on Android 7.0 cannot get this to work. i always get the failed to detect location. I got GPS mode on Device only. My app to mock the gps is Fake GPS Go. What to do?

  • BlueChuckian says:

    how do i move the joystick to the side of my screen

  • Minh Phuc Tran says:

    I get soft banned a few times. Not because I jump too far but the app sometimes stops working and get me back to my real position for a few second. I know the trick of spinning pokestop 40 times to get rid of the soft ban but:

    – How to fix it? It’s really annoying. Anyone else got this problem too?
    – Does it get to a permanent ban? Don’t wanna lose my account 🙁

    • Did you try keeping GPS setting to “Device only”?

    • MPM says:

      Put 3-4 aluminium food foil behind mobile and put silicon case. Cut the edges not to bother you so only display is not covered with 4 layers foil. Works great for me, it prevents gps signal, especially if you are in building with low gps signal.

    • Ntogg says:

      So spinning 40 pokestops will 100% get rid of softban? Must the 40 pokestops be those near u when u get soft ban or can they be from other further away places that I spoofed to get to?

  • Roy Kim says:

    I can’t play this becuse it says GPS not found.

    does it support moto g4 plus

  • blackpierce_ says:

  • Gideon Strydom says:

    I have a samsung Note 3. I did everything and tried and still failed to detect location. Then I turned Mock GPS off.. and Go worked again. How can I solve this ?

  • Madyson says:

    It works but it won’t stop saying failed to detect location can you please help Devs-Lab staff

    What is the likelihood of getting banned from this? Im level 32 completely legit but crushed 2 vertebrae at work and am looking at a lengthy recovery before Im back to dominating the gyms.

  • captain crunch says:

    I did everything I got the joystick and it’s says failed to detect location but I can move around

  • camus says:

    I have the new asus zenfone 3, and my position switch some times between the original one and the fake one. That make me soft ban a lot of time. I reduce the interval update and put “device only”. It’s the same…

    • Gz says:

      Dont be on a place without any gps signal
      i also have the zenfone 3 and i have to use this hack near my window
      if i go futher inside my house, the gps becames “crazy” and does those soft jumps
      try outside just to confirm this theory!

      • MPM says:

        Thanks man, sounds logical since if I turn gps off while using fly gps, game just reports no gps signal so it needs good gps signal not to make those jumps. I have a bit crazy gps drift in apartment when I play regularly.

        Edit: I tested it a bit more, was outside with two mobiles, one I use fly gps was still drifting to original location where I were at that time while my second mobile didn’t give any notification that I was going too fast. So this is either bug in fly gps app or pokemon go app has some mechanism to reset gps signal and confuse fly gps.

  • Gz says:

    I did everything said,
    its working 100%
    but i think only works with Android 5 and 6
    I tried with Android 4.4 and it wont work becasue there is no “Select mock location app” that is crucial for this to work out!
    On STEP 4: Don’t forget to change GPS accuracy to “Device Only” instead of “High…” thats the only update so far on this.
    Thanks Devs-Lab for the post (please keep us in touch in case of updates/bans)
    thank you again

  • Cassio Felix says:

    I went to fake location next to my current location, was not playing for more than an hour. I did not see pokestops or pokemons. what happened? “failed to detect location”

  • Jake Dodge says:

    Was the joystick shut down?

  • Shermanloww says:

    I successfully faked my GPS location but I can’t collect pokestops and pokemons will always run away once I try to catch them, whybis that so?

  • Shermanloww says:

    Devs-Lab Staff, I did everything mentioned above and the joystick is there but I can’t use it. What is the problem?

  • Aw Snap says:

    It seems to be working, but there are no pokestops or pokemon in the area D:

  • Audrone Audra says:

    when i Settings > Developer options. Locate “Select mock location app there aint any to chose like show in example Fake GPS go, all i get its to chose none, how can i fix it ? and im using samsung galaxy grand prime

  • Jesse Grimoldby says:

    Ok, so it works and all, and I’m not being rubber banded between the two locations, but most of the time, don’t know exactly when but the app icon and joystick disappear grr…why?

  • Matt says:

    I just set this up on my new android tablet (v0.47.1 Pokemon Go). Thanks Devs-Lab!!! Fake GPS Joystick (v4.5) works great! My only concern is every once in a while I jump back to my actual location, then jump back to where I put myself via the joystick. Is there a way to keep that from happening? It is preventing me from using my real account in fear of it getting banned. Thanks in advance!

    • Keep the GPS location to “Device only”. It happens because in high accuracy mode, Google tracks your Original location. Try it out for sometime before using your main account directly! Peace! 🙂

      • Matt says:

        I switched to Device Only and it still happens unfortunately. Should I disable Google Location History as well? And this new tablet has 1gb of ram. Could that have something to do with it? Thanks as always!

      • Clint says:

        The problem is that when you select “Device Only” then the Fake GPS will refuse to start it’s GPS function presenting a dialog window with CLOSE or SETTINGS as the only option.

        Really need a working solution to the rubber banding between mock location and actual location.

  • Whin says:

    I’m using P9 Plus and Fly GPS. Followed the instruction above. It says the joystick has been shut down and I cannot use. Tried a fixed Location Mode but Pokemon Go says Failed Location Service.

    my game cannot load. Is the app still working? Thanks.

  • Piotr Lamprecht says:

    @devslab:disqus Is it still working? Im trying to use it on Xiaomi RedmiNote 2 and i can’t set this app in Developer Options beacose it’s not there. I have changed localization but i see “Failed to detect location” still. You have any solve for it?

  • blackpierce_ says:

    hi im android lollipop, but referring to the link ‘jellybean or above’ it was said in the comment section that it no longer works. so how can i play without rooting? can i use the same method in this page?

    • The main problem is, only Android Marshmallow & above get options to choose mock location app. Currently, there’s no working hack (No root) for Lollipop/Kitkat. But you can root your device and use our Root hack which works fine with all! 🙂

  • blackpierce_ says:

    hi i’m android lollipop so i referred to the ‘jellybean or above’ link, but then i noticed in the comment section that it doesn’t work anymore. so how can i play without rooting? can i use the fake gps joystick?

  • liverpool7 says:

    Did anyone got banned for this? I wanna play the lapras event in japan

  • Matt says:

    Hello! Does this “no root required version” work on the latest update, 0.47.1 ?

  • Dakota says:

    @Dev Labs ???? Can you at least respond to my previous comment ??

    • I’m really sorry for not replying to your previous comment! To solve that issue, keep GPS mode to “Device only” & in Fake GPS app, reduce the update interval. It should solve your issue.

    screen overlay detected….

  • Dakota says:

    I also have a Galaxy S5 and I’m frequently teleported back to my actual location. I’ve been soft banned numerous times. I enjoy the app so I’d like to continue using it. Is there any other solution other then clearing the cache and data ?

  • Brooke says:

    ‘Can’t find location’ with mock locations enabled. 5.1.1 Samsung SM-G531. Will the Fake GPS app work on anything < version 6?

  • SuzieQ says:

    How do we know what android version we have? When i do it the joystick works in the app but on pokemon go it just says gps signal not found

    • Goto Settings > About Phone & check under “Version”. If it’s below 6.0 i.e 5.0/5.1/4.4 etc, this hack won’t work. We recommend you to root your device & use the hack for rooted device.

  • Phillip Jarrells says:

    i don’t see mock location app anywhere

  • Shredon 123 says:

    I can’t find where it says “select mock location app”

  • Shen says:

    I’ve got a problem, whenever I run Pokémon Go with this thing on, it says failed to detect location. What am I doing wrong?

  • Dre says:

    So when you are in Mock Location App mode does Niantic know the Mock location feature is enabled on your phone and would they give you a permanent ban?

    • Nope, they can’t detect that. Android does not allow apps to look into your device’s core settings. If you jump too far from your current location in a short time span, you “might” face a soft ban.

  • Dre says:

    Will Niantic know that you are using Mock Locations mode and ban your account.?

  • FTW says:

    it works but all the pokemon runs away 🙁

    • Sam Phillips says:

      I’m the same all pokemon run away ?

      • FTW says:

        soft ban, nothing seriuosly you just have to spin a pokestopo for 40 times and you can play normaly again. I made some experience with this app, it’s easy to avoid the ban in the future, for example, if you want to go to japan to catch some Lapras, turn off pokemon go, wait for 12-15 hours (it depends by where you live, i live in europe and i have waited for 13/14 hours) and then reconnect in japan. basicly you must wait the real time you should pass for a real travel to any place and the servers won’t ban you again. it works 🙂

    • Esk says:

      You got soft banned. You need to spin a poke stop 40 times to get it undone. Go in and out of the stop each time. Maybe try again after you wait a day without logging in and don’t bounce locations really far. Just one city or area per day. See if that helps.

  • Rachel says:

    This sounds great, but I am a little nervous. Can I switch the gps spoofer on and off easily, for when I just want to use my phone “normally”? Will it mess with any other functions/apps on my phone? I’m not really a techie, so forgive me if I am asking stoooooopid questions 😀

    • Yup! As it’s just an app, you can turn it off & it won’t mess with anything. You aren’t making any system level changes, you’re just installing a simple app which sends location of other places when switched on. 🙂

  • ShadowsShlong says:

    Just wondering, it works great for me on non rooted S5 verizon, but frequently will teleport me back to my actual location momentarily then back to the fake one. Is that normal, or due to my wifi connection or something? i feel like it increases the risk of a soft ban

    • Clear Fake GPS data & cache. Now try again. If you still face the issue, I would suggest you to avoid using this app & wait for a new hack. Make sure you bookmark this page. 😉

      • Dakota says:

        Is There Any Other Resolution ? I have a Galaxy S5 as well and it’s doing the same thing to me. I’ve been soft banned numerous times. I enjoy the app so I’d like to continue using it.

      • Dakota says:

        Is there any other resolution ? I have a Galaxy S5 as well, and it does the same thing to me. I’ve been soft banned numerous time. I enjoy the app and I’d like to continue using it.

  • Too legit. Being in a rural area where there is no pokemon near me except for one spawn .75 miles away. This will help. Works 100% for me Nexus 6, marshmellow.

  • Double A says:

    Hey guys hope you can help. I’m on not rooted Samsung S3, Android 4.4.2. DL both apps, enabled developer mode fine but missing “Select mock location app” setting. Pokemon not finding location. Fakegps seems to be running fine. I get the joystick overlay fine. Where am I stuck?

  • Chris Champion says:

    Is there any danger of being banned with this method?

    • Yup! 30% chances of temporary ban.

      • Tra-Fe says:

        How do you calculate that? I mean… 30% if you Switch Locations too fast, or 30% in General? And is it just temporary? Not permanent? And if temporary: How Long will the ban be? Because I just downloaded your maginficent app and it works brilliant! But I’m i Little bit scared to loose my Level 28-Account.

        • 20-30% is the amount of users who faced ban after using this hack. The only reason of facing ban was they jumped to far away location from their current location. We still don’t recommend jumping too far. Just be careful while jumping to locations, you might alert their servers.

      • Tra-Fe says:

        I tried to reply yesterday already. But is the ban just temporary? Or permanent? And 30% in General? Or just 30% ban-Chance if you jump to far?

    • Devs-Lab Staff says:

      It might be because of low RAM. Android tend to close background apps while loading apps that require more RAM. Try locking the app in recent apps.

  • Marcus says:

    It doesn’t work on my phone. I have installed the above and also developer options apk trying to get rid of the “Failed to detect location” but it still says it and I can’t see anything on the map (gyms ect.)

    Fly gps have removed the joystick and it no longer works. However the fake gps app in this updated guide does work and provides a working joystick. It includes speed options which is better but takes up a lot of room

  • Me says:

    Has Niantic detected when Fly GPS is running now? I don’t use it to jump any great distance 25 miles max to the only large(er) town near me and today I got “error” and then “Unable to Authenticate” when I attempted to use my trainer. This has never happened and I saw a post where someone said you can’t this this anymore with PoGo. If true, at least it was fun while it lasted.

  • Joseph W Rogers says:

    So was working fine until I decided to go to Paris LOL. Stopped working right away no matter how many times I spin at a pokestop.

    Do I need to go back to my actual location and start spinning? Or should I just stay in Paris and wait a few hours.

    Also can you please include instructions on how to reverse the steps, in order to have normal working on phone

    • Devs-Lab Staff says:

      Stay in Paris for some time. Don’t make too long jumps as it clearly shows you’re trying to fool their servers. Keep spinning in Paris itself. It “might” work.

  • Frank Yank says:

    Here’s my experience so far:
    – Running Samsung Galaxy S5 with Android 6.0.1 – NO ROOT!
    – PokpemonGO version 0.41.4
    – I played for 1 hour straight with no hickups or bans.
    – After following step-by-step the instructions, 99.9% of the things worked as expected!
    – I didn’t try battling gyms, but spinning pokestops, getting items and catching pokemon was just like being on that different location (I placed myself in the same city, but a few blocks away).

    The ONLY thing that is flawed is the pokémon location text (displayed at the bottom of the pokémon screen). It displays [,,COUNTRY] and that kinda bothers me a little bit.

    But other than that, I am kinda satisfied.

I catched a lot and f pokemons, got so many balls and eggs… IT WAS AMAZING!!! But now, when I try to play, I get to turn the pokestops but I get nothing, and when I try to catch a Pokémon, they simply fly away after the first throw… ? Any advice…?

    • Free says:

      SO bad, you are banned.

    • Elijah says:

      Go back in a hour and play. It happened to me as well. Try using it for a hour or two at a time.

    • Jamieson says:

      search youtube for quickspin. it appears you are softbanned. get that program on your pc and find a youtube tutorial for how to use it. Good Luck!

    • Darryl says:

      It’s a softban. You can wait til it’s lifted, which is usually a few hours or spin the pokestop about 40 times and it’ll be lifted. They check by the amount of hours between each location. So if you’re in California and you need to have the game off for the amount of flight time it would take. Or Seattle to the east coast, same thing. You can wait the hours or just jump location to location, but you’ll need to spin the pokestops everything. Also, it’ll stay at your last location. If you’re in Texas and you went to Japan, when you log off, then get back on the next day to the same area in Japan you won’t be soft banned. Hope that helps out a lot.

    It works like FakeGPS but has directional to move on the map.

    I repeat needs ROOT.

  • HELP! says:

    The hack works apart from the fact that I can’t catch any pokemon or use pokestops. I have never been soft banned on the account I use. I’ve followed all steps so I don’t know what is going on?!?

  • FLX says:

    Hi, app works perfectly fine, thank you very much,

    But while using this hack,
    There are several times whereby we suddenly teleported back to original location, and then back again to the spoofed location, is this safe? or does it like giving niantic server signal to flag?

    • Trevor F Coursol says:

      I have the same issue. Been using it for about 3 weeks no perma ban. Just soft bans. In an hour of using it I get maybe 1 softbans. It’s annoying but it works. Remove softbans by spinning poke stop 30-40 times.

      • jason says:

        i have tried spinning the pokestops lots of times but doesn’t remove the soft ban, any ideas?

        with regards to stopping the flickering of locations, i’ve noticed that it doesn’t happen in areas with poor gps signal…maybe there is a setting we can turn off? we need to weaken the gps signal…

  • GorgeousSynamon says:

    The app worked wonders the first day, but now I’m getting soft banned after a few minutes of play. I’m making sure to not move too fast so I don’t set any bells off, however, the soft ban happens more and more the more I use the hack. I really don’t want to root my device so I would love a hack that functions like the hack on the rooted device. Any ideas to prevent future software bans would be appreciated.

  • FENIX says:

    Hey, if this app only changes your gps location how can niantic know you’re cheating? You must be jumping too far too fast that’s all I can think of. Correct me if I’m wrong?

    Thanks ahead device labs

    • Devs-Lab Staff says:

      Yup! If you move normally, they won’t be able to catch you.

      • Treffx says:

        Actually, you’re wrong. It takes one short line of code to detect whether android has mock locations up and running. And it can only be hidden by rooting as it belongs to secure settings.

  • Daniel says:

    Hello everyone!

    I have Android 6.0 in my phone and all works in a regular way.

    Let me explain myself: Once I set the mock location with Fly GPS (and the joystick circle appears) I proceed to open the Pokemon Go.. At this point, it works great! My character appears exactly where I wanted and I can move around too…But, passed a few seconds (I know 30 o 50sec) the Fly GPS just stop working and the joystick disappears. Also my character jump to my real location at this point.

    So.. What could be that behavior? Why is this happening? Does anyone have the same behavior??

    Thanks a lot!

      Please admin reply to this matter. also not working in my phone. It always disappear after a few seconds.

  • Danya. says:

    This is not working for me today. I love it. I don’t understanding why this is happening.

  • Josh says:

    Hey I’ve already have the app installed but I need help…my phone is a Alcatel fierce xl 4glte and all and Everytime I launch Pokemon go app it says failed to detect location and I already have mock location on so… I need help thanks!

  • Cajmonet says:

    I need help. Downloaded and installed fine, but when I try to open Fly GPS app, it crashes “Unfortunately, Fly GPS has stopped”. Any fix for this?

  • pkm says:

    I can’t select mock location app on samsung a7 2016

    • Daniel says:

      Go to Settings>Developer Options>Set Mock Location (or something like that)> FlyGPS. Sources: Personal experience. I own a galaxy s7.

    • Ali says:

      You have been softbanned so just go to an PokéStop then you have to spin and release it 40 times it also happened to me when it gets pink you will get pokeballs

  • kelly says:

    I have a galaxy s5 with 5.1.1 version. When I open the game it tells me location not found. Is there any advice that I could get?

  • Joshua says:

    Everytime I select the Joystick option for pokemon it comes up with a message saying “This version does not work correctly lowered. [ Masimelrowoo ] to normal operation only in later versions !”
    And then when I open pokemon it says “Failed to detect location.”
    What do I do?

  • Raystorm says:

    Hi i have tried it and it works. Asus zenfone2 marshmallow. May i ask there is an updated version of pokemon go now. Is still safe to use this with proper care;-)

  • Daniel says:

    Can someone tell me how to move the joystick to a different part of the screen? It’s covering my items button and I can’t choose different balls or berries… Thanks

  • James says:

    I have a Xiaomi redmi note 3 with Android 5.0.2 and it doesnt work at all…

  • sabs says:

    Hi! It’s working! Totally great! Thanks for sharing. Anyway do you have any idea why the joystick does not appear on the game? I have tried to turn it off and on again but still nothing happens. I can set the location and it works just fine but since no joystick I cannot move it around tho. Have you got any idea about this?


  • Himanshu says:

    Fly gps app keeps crashing on redmi phones (My phone: Redmi 3s Prime). It just does not start after installed from playstore.
    Any solution please.

  • Dave says:

    Can you all stop asking the same stupid questions over and over please? If you cannot collect items or catch any pokemon you are SOFT BANNED. So stop asking. We have a real issue to figure out now. How do we stop from bouncing back to our actual location?

    • Chris says:

      Yes I would alsonly like to know… how to stop bouncing back and forth from real location to fake location….????

    • Nanas88 says:

      Had anyone been able to figure this out

    • jason says:

      i’ve noticed that when i’m in areas of poor gps signal it doesn’t happen at all….maybe there is a setting somewhere we can turn off? need to weaken our gps signal
