    From what I understand, I think setting up a VPN is an effective workaround for this intentional bug.

    Also confirming jonSCSL's observation and process to unroot, watch Tivo stream, and re-root.

    And because of his post, I also researched and discovered the joys of Xposed and associated modules today. I've been a root user for some time, but running stock on the nexus 5 since January so very happy to have much more flexibility in my device than I did this morning.

    Now if someone could figure out how to mask SU / root, I'd also be able to stream Tivo without jumping through hoops... (work around is good to know in case of an entertainment 'emergency', but not something I'm going to do every week...

    The new version is on the app store. I removed the beta and confirmed mine is working with the release.

    Mine still doesnt.. guess they are still checking for root files via Android library call. Probably only way to bypass it would be a custom kernel that allowed hooking certain native library calls.

    You could also patch the actual Tivo app and skip the check entirely.

    Guess it will be a long time before anyone figures out a way, there doesn't seem to be much interest in the community. Hell, no one even figured out a way to trick the Fios Mobile app in thinking that it's connecting to a local wifi network with a Fios IP address.

    The only way is to unroot SuperSU. Then as soon as SuperSU is uninstalled the Tivo app will work. Then to reroot just flash the supersu.zip in recovery.

    They must be checking more than just root, because I've unrooted SuperSU and definitely don't have root anymore... but still get the failure to stream due to unauthorized modifications.

    I wonder why the Fios Mobile works on rooted devices. I think Tivo is full of it when it says they are complying with regulations from content providers.

    It works on both my Note 3 and my S5. Maybe it's different on other brands that are not Samsung.

    Will this method work on a non-stock rom? I have a S4 running on hyperdrive rom.

    All I can say is try it. I went in to SuperSU and uninstalled SuperSU using its own uninstall. I did not reboot after and the Tivo app worked.

    To regain root just flash the supersu.zip in recovery. If you need the file I can get you a link.

    Ok, thanks. I never unrooted before so I was a bit paranoid. Please provide link. :)

    It works on my HTC M8 also by just unrooting.

    I flashed stock rom (4.2.2) for my Samsung GT 2 7.0... and the tivo app worked then... but when I flashed a custom rom, even with root disabled, the tivo app still fails because of "unauthorized modifications"...

    Why can't tivo be more transparent about what the error is all about - I'd be happy (well a little) to switch off the things that they see as "unauthorized" if reasonable, while I'm running a streaming session... but not having that info means that, apparently you just can't run anything other than stock vendor-supplied roms with root disabled. And I think that's ridiculous.

    Has someone tried the root hide android app to see if that will allow the tivo steaming in rooted devices?
