GENYMOBILE SAS assumes no liability whatsoever resulting from the download, install and use of Xposed/Edxposed framework and RootCloak module. Use it at your own risk.
In order to hide root from an application, you need to use a Xposed/Edxposed module called RootCloak.
Step 1: Install Xposed or EdXposed framework
Please refer to How to install Xposed or Magisk + Edxposed with Genymotion Device image (PaaS)?
Step 2: Install Rootcloack Module
- Launch Xposed Installer or Edxposed manager and go to the Download section:
- In the search field, type "Rootcloak" and click on "Rootcloak (with 5.x and 6.x support)"
- Go to the Version subsection and click on Download:
There is a more recent version with more powerful routines, but it is not stable. If you still wish to use it, go to SETTINGS, click Versions to be shown and select Beta (some bugs to be expected). Then, you will be able to install the latest beta version,
- After download, you will need to authorize Rootcloak module installation:
- Go back and click on Install:
- Once installed, you will still need to activate Rootcloak module. Go to the Modules section:
Activate Rootcloak module.
- Reboot the instance. Do not reboot from Xposed installer or Edxposed manager: this will freeze the instance.
- After reboot, launch RootCloak application.
Step 3: Usage
- Select Add/Remove Apps.
- If your app is not in the list, you must then click the "+" sign to add it.
- Exit RootCloak settings. If the app you just added to the list was already running, you need to FORCE CLOSE it for the settings to take effect.
- Run your application.

Using RootCloak will likely not work with modern banking applications or games as they use complex anti-root and anti-emulation routines. It is more suitable for developers who wish to test their applications in a non-rooted environment.
