Pokemon Go GPS spoofer


Pokemon Go GPS spoofer


The reason? due my disability, i wont spill my energy on a game, the real world is challenging enough.
Sure, there will be another method to spoof your location, but i am using this trick.


ROOTED Android device.
Xposed framework
GPS spoofer app, like “Fake GPS location

Whut? A rooted Phone with Xposed framework? This is not information for the casual smartphone user, if you dont know what root or xposed framework is.   stop,  and dont screw your smartphone up.

1: install the Fake GPS location app.

2:  Enable developer settings on your android device. ( Go to settings menu, scroll down to “About phone” and tap it.  Scroll down to  “build-number” and tap 7 times on it.  Go back to settings to enter the developer settings menu.
3:  Android version till 5. enable “Allow mock locations”, android 6: “select mock location app” and select the FAKE GPS Location app.

4: Install this Xposed module “Mock Mock Locations
This app helps if apps prevent using the Mock location function.
5:  Reboot Phone, open the FAKE gps app, select your location on the map, open the Pokemon app.  Look where you want to go, switch to the fake gps app, change position, and change back to the Pokemon app.
Have fun!



Chromecast ROOT (1st Gen)


Why custom rom/root? Main reason: Custom dns server, change dns to a custom dns service website, And you can watch Netflix USA, or other regions.
Netflix with custom DNS is almost impossible these days, and rooting the first gen chromecast with firmware 17977 or below are rare.

First of all,

Thnx to all the guys of Team-Eureka, they made this possible. They deserve a donation!
Also thnx to Elborak, who converted the original hex file to Leonardo hex files!

What do you need?

  • Chromecast (UNUSED, NEVER CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET!!) Cc’s from the store are shipped with old firmware 17977 or lower, the newest firmware cannot be rooted. With internet, Google will automatically update your cc to the newest firmware version.
  • OTG Host Power Splitter Y cable USB: http://goo.gl/J8vvck
  • ATmega32U4 based micro controller: http://goo.gl/bkiMyd
  • Usb thumb drive 1 GB or bigger.


Install software:

  • Install the Arduino IDE software.
  • Install Arduino Builder.
  • Reboot computer.

Prepare hardware – Arduino:

Connect the arduino to your pc. Go to device manager to see which port the arduino will use. In my case, it’s com port 7.


Start Arduino builder Select Arduino Leonardo as Board type. Click on “Load Sketch / HEX” And load LEONARDO_16664.hex


The .hex file is loaded on the arduino!

  • Pull your arduino from your computer.


Prepare hardware – Usb thumbdrive:

  • Insert usb drive in computer.
  • Format the usb drive (FAT32)
  • Install Win32DiskImager and open it.
  • The “Device” should be the drive letter of the usb drive.
  • Click on the blue folder icon.


In the right lower corner click on “Disk Images (.img*.IMG) and select *.*, to see all files

  • Now load the hubcap-flashcast.bin file and use the “Write” button to write the .bin file on the usb drive.


It’s time to root, UNPLUG YOUR INTERNET!
If the chromecast connect to your wifi network, it something went wrong the cc will be automatic updated to latest (UNROOTABLE) firmware. So unplug internet before you are beginning the root process.
When the rooting process is done, i also connected the chromecast to this network.

What i did: Made a wifi hotspot with my android tablet, also connected my android phone to the tablet wifi hotspot. Now we have a new wifi network, without internet.


Connect all cables as in the following picture.



This is the second picture, when the arduino part is done, and the usb drive is connected:


And watch my video how to actual complete the root process. A video is worth a thousand words 🙂


Last step:
Checking if you have actual flashed the Eureka-rom:
Open the Chromecast app, follow the in-app connecting steps.
Scroll to the bottom, to see the chromecast IP address.



Open your internet browser and go to the ip address of the chromecast. Like: http://192.168.x.x


If you see the Team-Eureka Webpanel, then you are 100% ROOTED!!





Do you have other intention with your Arduino after rooting your chromecast? Then you must follow the next steps.

Connect the arduino on your windows computer and the arduino will appear for about 8 seconds in windows device manager, remember the COM port the arduino is using.
Download AXLoader

Unpack the .rar to a easy accessible, like C:/
Use windows command line (Windows Key + R -> ENTER – > cmd -> ENTER)
Navigate to c:/axloader        This is the command –>> cd c:\axloader
Copy/pas this command in command line, fill in your own COM port, mine was 7.. AND DO NOT PRESS ENTER!

avrdude -p atmega32u4 -c avr109 -P COM8 -U flash:w:Blink.hex -v

Now the tricky part.
Use something metal to short the GND & RST pin on the arduino.



When you will do this, the arduino will disconnect, and connect to your computer, in the following 8 seconds, press the ENTER key to execute the command above.
High five! The arduino is normal again! 🙂

If you will wait more then 8 seconds, the arduino will load the Chromecast ROOT program, and you are not be able anymore to upload the code. If this is the case, short the 2 pins again 🙂


Have fun!
