Pokemon GO GPS fly Hack for non rooted Android

As Pokémon Go continues its massive surge of international popularity, there have already been a wide variety of creative methods from various players who have tried different ways to beat the system. Different Pokemon GO hacks have been released for each Smartphone platform. Even we have published Pokemon GO hacks for Rooted Android device. But 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.

Fake GPS Joystick & Routes Go

Currently this is the only app that tends to work with all the security updates & allows you to change your location using a Joystick. 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 FlyGPS, but FlyGPS 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 it’s full potential, due to which you will face Rubberbanding affect (You can avoid Rubberbanding affect 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.

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. 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.

Pokemon GO Fake GPS Hack Gym Raid Battles Latest Working

Also read:

For the last month people have been spoofing the same way they have been spoofing for months except now a LOT of people are getting the red warnings.

There have been many good theories about how they were detecting the spoof but no proof. Two people could be spoofing on the same setup (same phone, same unlocked/locked bootloader status, same root setup, same suhide setup, same magisk setup, same Xposed setup) and one would get the warning and the other wouldn’t. Some people started to theorise it was behavioral analysis, but many people reported jumping all over the world and never getting warned/shadow banned, and others (like me) would barely spoof a little around their neighborhood (only a few miles) and would get warned / shadowbanned. So the “Behavioral Analysis” theory was pretty well debunked.

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.

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.


1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

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)

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.

    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

    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

    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. Nothing has worked. I am getting GPS signal not found (11) failed to detect location (12). I have done everything in the above directions to get a no root version to work. My phone is a Samsung s7 edge running everything current and updated as of last update. Today is 10/13/2017. I have android 7.0 security update August 2017

  • sangeeth

    Im switching back to my real location no matter what Gps hack I use .it always comes back to my real location in seconds

  • Barry Tom

    don’t work in xiomi note 4 andoid nougat security patch 1 juky 2017, please help me Buddy……..

  • Disable Joystick. Whenever you get a failed to detect location warning, just minimize Pokemon GO, go to Fake GPS App and move your location. Now open Pokemon GO and wait for 2secs, the error would be gone.

    • Suppayalak Kongpech Tarn

      Hi, I use Xiaomi Note Pro and also have this problem ALWAYS : Failed To Detect Location (12) how can I do it?

  • Paul

    How can i do a temporary root on galaxy s8+ ?
    and if i root it with cf- root will it avoid my warranty? i rooted my galaxy s7 edge last year with cf- auto root and my warranty didnt be avoid, i got a problem after with the phone some months afer unrooting and i took the phone to the manufacturers and they fixed the phone with the warranty, please can someone answer my question? 🙂

  • BlondeAgent

    How do you do the temporary root on samsung s7?

  • Kelvin Prowel

    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


        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

          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

    So it’s doesn’t work anymore?

  • Enjoygamespc s

    Pokémon go show failed to detect location

  • Arne Slabbinck

    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

    Do I need to root to stop the rubber banding of the gps? One minute im walkiing with the joystick, the next, im back home, then back where i had the fake gps set to. I’m using a Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0″

  • J Stewart

    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

    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.

    • Thearkham One

      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.

    • sangeeth

      Me too .im using Redmi note 4 too

  • shashikant shukla

    still not working

  • The Maharaja Unhindered

    My phone doesn’t have to option to “select mock location app”.
    It only has an “On/Off” option for using mock locations. So I think that’s the reason for my phone not detecting the location and hiding all pokestops etc.
    Otherwise it’s simply because they caught on.

  • IGotTheWorldOnMyBack

    Because its still the exact same tutorial that was used last year. Newest Android secruity update got this GPS Hack off the stage. We have to wait for new methods, and instead of waiting, walk some km’s maybe.

    • CAT

      I would be more than happy to do so but it’s 2am and I’m stuck in my hostel ._.

      • DK

        Still works if you roll back your Android OS to the August 2016 Version. The security update that allows 3rd party apps to detect spoofed GPS was began rollout in November 2016.

  • J Stewart

    still doesn’t work 06 july 17. failed to detect location, no pokestops, no gyms, no pokemon.


      Same here

  • Sam de Cock

    So will it work if you find an older version of android? and what version do we need? maybe a link?

  • Tommy Holt

    I still get the ‘failed to detect location’

  • Ina Honey

    I still get the ‘failed to detect location’..please help..

  • Jennifer Parker

    Okay….so the only issue I seem to have now is all my Pokemon break free & flee!!!!

    • <

      that’s because you were soft banned, which usually last for 30 minutes to a few hours, they will always break free until the ban is over.

  • bart coolen

    doesn’t work. failed to detect location android 7.0

  • Jeff Anderson

    DEV-LABS: I thought you guys were going to fix this ?? I’m still getting “Failed to Detect Location” I have the following :
    Android V6.01,
    security patch as of 3/1/17,
    Fly GPS V5.0.6,
    Mock GPS V1.1.2.1,
    Pokemon Go v0.67.1
    Neither fake GPS programs work. And your sample above does not show the options for the most current versions of the software. When can we expect a valid update ?

  • Siddharth Bansal

    When i open pokemon go “location not detected” is shown on the top of the screen. How to sort this out ??

  • Chris Mcknight

    I am having the same issue. Just tried this today with a new account. It worked but then about 10 minutes in I got rubberbanded back to my actual location then back to the spoof and this happened about 3 or 4 times in a row. Pretty sure I am soft banned now though.

  • Kash

  • Stephan

    I have the can’t detect location issue using 5.0.2, as well as not having an option in developer mode to select mock location app, only one to allow.

  • Bazinga!

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

  • Jack Skellington

    That sounds like a temporary soft ban

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

    • Tony Kan

      What do u suggest then? Anyway to hack it?

  • Chris

    Can it be done with android 5.0.1

  • Vio

    Anybody know of any fixes?

  • Dewayne Williams

    The apps dont work nomore niantic has partnered with google once u updated your phone u allowed Google to spy on ur location so thats why it says u cant detect location cant u cheating app

  • Christopher Leon

    My guy seems to be walking really slow. Anyone else having this problem?

  • Flocea

    I spent about 300 Euros with pokemon GO .. Now I save money.

  • Harry Gonzalez

    Fly gps 4.0.5 stopped working after updating my android phone to the latest version this morning..

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

      • Michael

        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.

  • Jason

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

  • Michael

    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

    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.

      • Slippericious

        Thanks for the advice. Pity you have erased comma from your device too.

      • Michael

        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

    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

    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.

    • Vince Parkes

      You just need to spin the poke stops 30 or so times in the new locations to get rid of the soft ban

    • Kenneth Warner

  • Gedzo

    Hey! I Have a problem. it was working so far, but now i got a “failed to detect position” error if i start the pokemon go. What happend? How can i fix then? IT was working before 🙁

  • Notch Johnson

    Working for me on my brand new Galaxy A5. If you install Pokemon and don’t accept all the things it needs before launching gps app it won’t work.

  • Jarrod Napier

    Works great. Galaxy s5 6.0.1.


    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

    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

    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.

  • iLkyp

    My galaxy s5 hasnt been updated since 2015. still says location cant be found. ideas?

  • Daniela Schmidt

    doesent work 🙁

  • AmandaB

    I have to agree since the update I can not even use the app to walk around my city because it fails to detect gps. I’m using a 7edge with 7.1 running no changes to settings only change is the update.

  • Roland Laki

    Hey guys, I got the answer for you: the march security update for android is blocking all kinds of spoof gps so Dev-labs if you claim it’s still working for you, please explain us how to go round the security update 😉

    • Downgrading is the only option.

      • Roland Laki

        Yeah, well, problem with that is that it erases your data… 🙁

  • Bigman


  • Ricky Bajwa

    It says failed to detect location…NOT working for me. Please help.

  • Butch Wild

    Does not work anymore after android update. Failed to detect location message cannot be circumvented, even after rooting the device.

  • Dunjul

    The app itself works, but i cant catch any pokemon or interact with the pokestops

    • Pui Yuee C

      Same here. Any resolution?

    • Nicholette Sooji Kim

      Same here :< it's like ultimate tease

  • hookerhifive

    still works, pretty laggy, but i dont leave my state. The app for moving is kinda slow but i cant complain.

  • TiltedPanda

    Ever since the app itself has updated it hasn’t worked for me. Tried different places both far and close to me and nothing works it just repeatedly puts me right back to where I actually am and doesn’t work.

  • Hope Roberts

    Pokemon hasnt banned yall for doing this?

    • It’s undetected.

    • Roland Laki

      If we were banned it wouldn’t work without the fake gps either, but with normal gps the game works fine

    • Roland Laki

      If they banned us it wouldn’t work without fake GPS as well. But it works without fake gps

  • geneon101

    can confirm working still

  • Mohamed Mirdad

    Not working any more because of the update

    • It’s still working.

      • Roland Laki

        Then why does it keep saying failed to detect?

        No it isn’t.

      • Roland Laki

        And how exactly?

      • Mohamed Mirdad

        The same way mentioned above. I am using a Sony xperia xz

      • Roland Laki

        Dear Mohamed, why you claim it’s working when it’s not? I have a Sony Xperia X and since the android update like 4 days ago it’s not working anymore I even found an explanation on Reddit… But if you have a trick we’re all ears and eyes

        • Mohamed Mirdad

          It’s still not working for me I have a Sony xz Maybe downgrading can work but I don’t know how to do that too

      • Mohamed Mirdad

        not working with me as I have a sony XZ and its been updated to the latest software version and I can even rollback

  • Bruno Mcwolf

    not all phones let you update. if you want to try open your play store (on android) and look up marshmallow …download and install.

  • Noven Jubelag Aventura

  • It’s a soft ban.

    • Benjamin Patrick Gough

      Hey @Shawn why is it coming up failed location
      .well I know why obviously but do you have a work around for Samsung s6. Don’t really wanna have to have the hassle of routing it changing all the system property and then un routing it just too play pokemon (as I use my phone for my satnav need to be able to turn spoofing off haha
      Might be worth and add I’m currently spoofed to my real location. Trying to set it to walk round the town whilst I work.

  • muziqaz

    No jumping around, but every pokemon I try to catch runs away, even pigeys

    • Spikkie1234

      Same here.. Even when I delete the fake gps 🙂 can’t play anymore!!

      • Abhinav Kumar

        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.

    • rhaize

      youre soft banned, wait a day or two

    Doesn’t seem to work now that I’ve updated to 7.0. It rubber bands non-stop and i can’t move anywhere for more than a few steps.

  • Shawn Dean

    Hey any Pokemon I try to catch breaks away and runs after one ball. Any ideas on why?

  • Goku

    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?

    • Aditya Saraogi

      Same here dude. 2 day ago i updated my samsung j5 and could not use any fake gps app 🙁 . Before that i was playing fine

  • Victor

    I’ve been using this app for months up until my phone just updated to android 7.0 and now I keep teleporting to my actual location every few seconds.

  • Fellps

    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

    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?

  • Aditya Saraogi

    Today After updating my galaxy j5 the faks gps / fly gps r not working . It now showing failed to detect location everytime i play pokemon go with fly gps. Before the update i was playing fine with fly gps. Whats wrong now?

    I got to my spoof location and can move around but all pokemon run and stops dont give any items. On an Lgg3 not sure what rooted means. Tips?? Thanks !!

    • 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.

      • Desiree Pat

        Gee that’s crazy, I guess I won’t be trying this again, had a chickoreet run from me 🙁
        Thank you!

      • nelson

        If I get soft banned on/off will it eventually catch on and perma ban the account?

        • 趞娠鄻

          no,it will not permanently ban your accout.

    • Desiree Pat

      After a seemin ban I went back to my location and it worked again, just can’t jump too far i suppose. I’ll just try to use it within the city. Thank you!!

      • You can jump far but you need to take care about travel time, so that the servers think you actually traveled to that spot.

  • Haffiz Bz

    There’s new update for Pokemon go. Should we update it? Will there be problem with this hack? Someone?

    • You can update it, it won’t cause any problem with this hack.

  • Linda Cecilie Malum-Soløst

    Nothing happens when I use the joystick…?

  • You can surely play games in custom ROM. Pokemon GO is no different. Might be some GPS issue.

    Does this work with the Sharp Aquos 306sh????

    The hack works for about 5 minutes but then starts jumping back n forth to my original location n spoofed location. This has already got be banned twice. Any updates or tricks on how to make these jumps stop?? On GS7 running the latest Android marshmallow.

    • Currently there’s no solution for that. Not everyone is facing the issue, maybe you can try experimenting with app & GPS setting.

    • Bruno Mcwolf

      look under faq … said to try to put foil over the top of the phone to help block the real gps. or use in a place that you normally don’t get much of a connection for the gps on your phone.

  • Piotr Lamprecht

    Devs, you know does it is possible to play pokemon go on custom rom? I just installed custom android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Resurrection Remix 5.7.4 and i can’t log into the game. The grey pokeball is spinning like 2-3 min then i have a communicate “Unable to authorize”. My phone – Xiaomi Redmi Note 2. There are only custom androids 6.0 for my phone :/

  • “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”

  • Softban!

  • 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

      When I changed to ‘Battery Saving’ and GPS is turned off, ‘Failed to detect location’ error switches off… But the App does not work. If I turn the GPS on for ‘Battery Saving’, the error appears again… ‘High Accuracy’ and ‘Device Only’ will also prompt error… Ugh… why Pokemon Go whyyyy… TT_TT (using Redmi Note 3)

    • Liuu Jadiya

      There is have others idea… No root

  • Stigma McKenna

    I dont think this works anymore it worked perfectly at first but now I can go to a different location but pokestops wont wont and pokemon run away after throwing 1 pokeball

    • It is still working. If the Pokemon are running away, you’re soft banned. Try spinning the coin at any gym to get unbanned.

  • Richoe Walker

    I try to catch Pokemon and they all escape the Poke balls. Also, I can’t get anything out of the Poke Stops. The coin just keeps spinning and spinning.

    • 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

        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.

  • Shawn Frost

    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

      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.

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

  • Izumi_thenerd

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

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

  • Might be a soft ban.

    • caleb imel

      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

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

  • Padmé

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

  • kf

    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

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

    • caleb imel

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

  • Woohoo! Enjoy! ^_^

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

  • I started at the main square of mi city and a snorlax appeared, thanks!!!! xD

  • Navneet singh

    How to select mock location app in android marshmallow ?

  • flatch hippo

    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

    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

    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

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

  • Jeremiah Chism

    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.

    • Softban. To remove the soft ban you have to flip 40 times the same pokestop.

  • George Redbeard

    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

    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

    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?

    • Yes you can use all other apps perfectly. Just turn off the App & you’re all good.

      • Rodrigo Torres

        Thank you. I will give it a try.

  • 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

      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

    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

    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

    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

    • Lollipop joystick apps are currently removed by Pokemon GO officials.

  • Zer0.exe

    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

    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.

  • Currently, No!

    • Amit Sharma

      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

    its failed to detect location ;(

  • Thomas

    I have lollipop and I can’t select mock app

  • vasu

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

  • Hoosier Dad

    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.

    • Amit Sharma

      Is there anything for kitkat, though?

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

    • Zell

      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

    I cant select mock location app in my phone

  • Amit Sharma

    I have kitkat 4.4.2 and whenever i launch pokemon go after the fake gps it says failed to detect location

  • MAndar Mahadik


  • robert

    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

      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

  • Ryan

    It said Couldnt detect location

  • TheOne

    It is funny how many of you did not take the time to read the post fully.

  • Mushrafin

    How to select mock app in developer options? I am not getting any option to select fake gps go app.

  • Alap Kamat

    Did some research and found out that you can’t select your mock location app in <6 android version. A workaround is to root your phone and convert the mock location app into a system app. I have 5.1 and can't root my phone, please help me!

  • Soutrik Mukherjee

    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”

  • aarus sigdel

    hey i have a wiko rainbow phone and its android,and i cant find gps item in allow mock location pls help how can i solve my failed to detect location.

  • I installed the App, did the developer thing, but when I go to select the app for mock locations, there isn’t an option to pick anything for me.

    • I guess you’re running Android Lollipop? This guide works with Marshmallow & above.

  • Britt

    Hey that’s a soft ban

  • Skywalker26

    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

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

    • Go to any GYM & spin the ring 30-40 times to release soft ban.

  • Britt

    Me too

  • Britt

    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”?

    • Venkat

      It doesn’t work then too

    • Britt

      Does it work on Android version 5.0.1?

    • einfach Ich

      yes. But doesn’t work. PGO detect the developer option.

  • 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! 🙂

    • Mike Brown

      So leave GPS off for 24 hours, jump to Australia and then turn GPS back on. Turn on GO and start moving around and it should start to let me catch things?

    • Mike Brown

      I can confirm this worked

  • 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

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

  • randy martinez

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

    • Nathaniel Harvey

      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

    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

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

  • slimstainless

    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

    • Sounds like Soft ban. You might have jumped too far while testing. Spin the Pokeball near a gym to unban.

      • GamerGuy

        How do you spin a pokeball near a gym? Is it like trying to throw a curve ball?

  • Root it! 🙂

  • Rooting it is the only option as of now!

  • Raj

    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. 😛

    • Imagine bear

      I actually tried the tinfoil method and it works well, no glitch!

  • Works fine! 🙂

  • 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.

  • Softban maybe.

  • 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.

  • tsiskaylee

    GLITCHING back to original spot? wrap your phone in tin foil. just the back and around the sides. it will stop the glitching

  • kanta

    does this work for android version 5.1.1?

    • Eram

      I also want to know because i tried this,i went to my desired location,but it said failed to detect location and there was supposed to be a pokestop,bt nothing was there…..not even pokemons

  • Riddhi Bose

    i have installed it on my redmi 3s prime and i was able to use it this morning but i came back home and then saw it was not working…while coming back to home i passed by a pokestop widout using fakegps and got pokeballs and other items.but now i am in my home and used fakegps to go to my nearest pokestop and get some pokeballs but it is not giving me anything…plz help

  • Rahul Mondal

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

  • Imagine bear

    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

    Still Working fine?
    No bans?

  • Jaimee W

    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

    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

    • TheOne

      restart your phone and be sure to give enough travel time to where you are jumping to.

  • MrWolf

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

  • rigu10

    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

  • RzDude

    I did everything. It fakes GPS location but the joystick doesn’t work. I can’t move around using it. Please help.

  • nd4spd1919

    Non-root doesn’t work. It just shows the GPS not found error. Only rooting works now.

  • Aartarak Roger

    So, do i need to disconnect from wi-fi or whatever so the gps doesn’t try to locate me IRL? Haven’t tried this yet, but i’m seeing some people complaining about this issue 🙁

  • Aguares

    Hello when i am at a place other than home, i can not take any pokestop or pokemon

  • Sharon Rose Schoonover

    1/1/2017 at 5:49 pm EST, will not let me catch pokemon after 10 minutes of use. Am I permanently banned now?

  • Daniel

    Bro I jumped from one city to another as my city doesn’t have that many pokestops..But now I can’t collect anything from the pokestops?? Is this a soft ban and if it is then what to do?? Should I giv it some time?? Help pls

  • ash katchem

    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.

  • Linux

    this hack only works for android 6.0 and above. not for lollipop 5.1, which is what i have.

  • hands

    Why i get GPS signal not found. I already try turn on and off gps.

  • Adam

    Followed the instructions and it kind of works. The problem I have is that pokemon are running every time I try to catch and the pokestops say try again later.

  • JoeM2007

    Please explain how this gps can or cannot be detected… does niantic know you are faking? Whether yes or no how are you sure?

  • JoeM2007

    Please explain how this gps can or cannot be detected… does niantic know you are faking? Whether yes or no how are you sure?

  • Supermak

    When i finish the hack, somehow it says that gps signal is not detected. Do I need a more up to date model than a samsung Note 5?

  • Alvaro Cominotti

    Works great aside from the critical point that it keeps randomly teleporting me back to my real location. Obviously this ends in soft bans all the time so its not really useable. Ive tried all the location settings (device only, etc) and all the app’s settings and unfortunately it keeps happening. Using a Nexus 6 with Android 7.0

  • Cyriac S Pampackal

    how can i make it work on my coolpad note 3
    i am being transported to the fake location but i am not able to view the pokestops or gyms or pokemons …plz give me a solution..

  • Uzz Wal

    When i spoof location
    After sometimes it travels back to my current location and again to spoofed location.
    Pls help with problem and its solution

    • wolf

      Same for me. Very frequently those days. Please let me know if you have any solutions.

  • Still saying fail to detect location. You need to update this by saying its not working!

    • That’s weird. The hack works fine even after all the updates. Try checking the GPS settings. Here’s a screenshot of working hack as of today. Working hack

  • Thiyagu

    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

        Hey… Great hack… Still a doubt … I got soft banned and then removed it like three times this day …. Is it ok if i continue this hack ?

  • Elaine Ell

    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

    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 .

  • Rizz

    Since the most recent update for Pokémon Go the Mock location app hasn’t been working. It just says ” Failed to detect location”. Everything is up to date and I am not banned. As soon as I shut off the mock location it locates me fine. Is there any new app or update we should downloading?

  • Daniel

    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. This is just a ban waiting to happen. Can you give a detailed way of fixing this please? Your previous respones werent easy to understand.

    • Uzz Wal

      Same problem

      • Kou V

        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.

  • Harkiret Singh

    Ok it worked for 2 days but now everytime i spoof location, it jumps back to original location in few seconds. Also if I set to GPS only to fix it then the Pokemon go app says GPS Signal Not Found. Please tell solution.

    • Wanibedo

      yes i have the same problem ….

  • Davvy

    Thanks. i have tried it for about 1 hour, and it is working. However, my avatar was walking at the beginning, now it was running quite fast. dont know why…

    • Davvy

      I found out why i was running extermely fast. there is a semi transparent scroll that let you adjust your walking speed. cool.

    • Davvy

      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?

  • Sai Sandeep

    Can This Be Used In Emulators Like bluestacks??
    Thanks In Advance.

    • Yes, why not! 🙂

    Alright so everything is working great and all of a sudden I get pulled all the way back to my real location and then shit back to the location I picked to be at. Not sure why it keeps happening but I did get a soft ban. I’m using the Galaxy S6.

    • Selected GPS setting to “Device only” to fix this issue. If you still face the issue, it might be a soft ban.

      • Anubhav Chaturvedi

        The decice only setting gives “GPS Signal Not Found” error in Pokemon go

      • Daniel

        Exactly how do you do that?

      • Rizz

        Where can I find the “Device only” setting?

  • LG G3, Android version?

  • Soft ban I guess.

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

    • Joshua Barker

      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

      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”.

    • Joshua Barker

      This setting doesn’t exist. If it does, can you share where?

      • Settings>Location>Mode (Make sure GPS is on)>Select “Device only”

  • Glad to know! Happy spoofing! 😀

  • Make GPS setting to “Device only”.

  • Allow screen overlay for GPS app.

  • Android version 5.1? This only works for 6.0+

  • Rohan Ahuja

    Same problem… In marshmallow… It works though… But failed to detect location… N thats why no pokemon can be seen

    • Failed to detect location in which device? Please mention Device name & Android version. Did you try keeping device’s GPS setting to “Device only”?

      • Rohan Ahuja

        Yupp… It works.. When i set device only.. It worked.. Btw.. My device is oneplus 3.. 6.0.1

  • shaan

    when I try to play (i mean when I get to a pokestop) the fake gps automatically closes! can u say how to keep the app in memory (fake gps) so that it does not close while playing?

    • Click on the lock icon which appears on every app in recent apps menu.

  • Susarathi Bose

    Everything happens jusy as you said it would, but i can’t collect any items from pokéstops & every pokemons vanishes after exactly 5 seconds of staying.

  • Omar Rodriguez

    Can have permanent ban for it???

  • Jinx

    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

    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

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

  • capt. Jean-Luc Picard

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

  • Syed Ansaar

    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

    There is no option to select mock locations app.

    • Android version?

      • Modernday Hurcules

        android 5.0 probably…im having the same issue

  • BlahBlahBlah

    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

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

  • Yaoming Ha

    is the guide up to date now?

  • AskQuest

    any good one for android 5.1?

  • Ethan Payne

    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

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

  • elisabetta

    I don’t have mock location

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

    • Yaoming Ha

      are the images and app updated by now ?

  • Clear data of both the app.

    • Shotaro jap

      Still same

    • jj

      still says Failed to detect location

    • Shotaro jap

      still the same

    • David Greenberg

      Hi this also is happening to me, even after clearing all app data on both apps. Any help? I have an LG G3 Thanks

  • 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.

    • Luke

      How do you turn the GPS to device only on the Nexus 6p please ? Keep getting failed to detect location

  • Roy Kim

    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

    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

    Works. Thanks!

  • timewarrior66

    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

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

  • Dan McLeod

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

  • Toto

    Does it work on oppo f1s?

  • Queen Lula the Ginihog

    Very confused. App looking different than one in explanation.

  • Shotaro jap

    Failed to detect location upon opening Pokemon GO

  • Minho

    Would using this get me banned?
    Like lets say, I get soft banned a few times. Would I get hit by their bam wave later?

  • disqus_5SbX9n3Kb2

    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

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

    • Just hold it by pressing it and move it around the screen.

  • Minh Phuc Tran

    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

      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

      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

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

  • Usagiarwen

    I’ve heard about people getting banned for using third party apps. What’s the probability with this of being banned?

    • Only if you get caught while over doing it. Like jumping too far or moving too fast. 🙂

  • Derek Salazar

    How does one avoid soft ban??

    • Play normally, don’t run, don’t jump to far locations. Wait for sometime while jumping to locations making it look natural & not any kind of hack.

      • Derek Salazar

        Does a device have to have celluar service?? Or can this process run off wifi only phome?

  • jaggeds0ul

    stupid cant do anything but walk around

  • jaggeds0ul

    cant spin stops or catch mons why is this

  • jaggeds0ul

    cant catch anything or spin stops wtf is the deal

  • Eve

    I love the app but lured pokestop don’t produce any pokemon. I’m standing at a spot with 3 lures up and nothing spawns. Why?

    • Great Scott Not

      There is no way this has anything to do with Fake GPS go.

  • Mahamed Tarek

    Note 4 don’t have to choose which app for mock location just opens all on any ideas?

  • Sleeep

    If i change my Position i can’t Use some pokestops or Catch pokemon. What is wrong?

  • luke

    i cant collect any pokestops or catch any pokemon or battle gyms. why?

  • Dillon

    My mock setting keeps turning itself on in the app and making my location unavailable how do I make it quit doing that

  • Janne Karjalainen

    Everything worked yesterday okay, but today Pokemon Go got new update with new nearby locations on pokemos and today even joystick didin’t work…

  • Zachary Lawrence

    I have a galaxy s4 that I’m doing this on and it won’t allow me to select the mock app. It just has a check box that let’s you use mock gps. It doesn’t actually allow you to select the app. Any suggestions?

  • Mizan

    It tells me failed to detect location
    After switching on mock location
    Plz help

  • Soo Tien Hong

    It worked for a week but now…I can see all the stops and gyms..but every time I try to battel a gym..its error…help please

  • roske ..

    I can’t catch any Pokemon and pokestops are not working too. The only thing I can is walk around area. Why?

  • Joseph Lash

    Doesn’t seem to work for me. No pokestop or Mon are showing up
    I’m running nougat

  • Great Scott Not

    Every so often, the game will shift me back to my real physical location, but only for one second. I think I have gotten some soft bans as a result. Any idea why?

    • Did you jump too far?

      • Gz

        Whats “far” for you staff?
        Sometimes it does so, i noticed too, (sometimes in a middle of a battle)
        in my case it jumps maybe 50meters…100meters max…

      • Great Scott Not

        I am playing maybe 1km from my house. It will do this repeatedly (jump me back home) for a few seconds and then back to where I am spoofing.

      • MPM

        It happens to me too. I don’t jump, just walking with joystick around. I have 6.0.1 and I put gps only and disabled option apps can search for wifi even when they are off. Not sure if I set something wrong or it’s a bug.

    • Lucas

      Had the same problem. Just put some aluminum paper on the back of your phone and it will work just fine.

    • MPM

      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. I use high accuracy for now but no problems yet, will try to switch to gps only later.

  • jolson

    Doesn’t seem to work since new Pokemon Go version 0.47.1…?
    (Android 6.0 phone)

    • It works.

      • Janne Karjalainen

        In my case reinstalling Fake Gps make it work again

  • blackpierce_

    Will it work if im android lollipop and i followed the exact same steps as mentioned above? I dont want to root my device to play, since i need to install Xposed, and i need a custom recovery etc. there are just too many steps for me who sucks at computer stuffs.

    • It does not work in Android Lollipop. Either you need to wait for new hack to come out or root your device.

      • Stephen Cho

        Are you able to provide the link for the root for the Lollipop?

      • Stephen Cho

        Do you happen to have the link for the Lollipop root?

  • beas365

    I don’t see select mock location app galaxy s4

  • Mirza

    Dev labs pls help when I go to select the fake GPS it says nothing I have already turned on allow mock apps and downloaded the joystick but it just won’t work for me. And the select mock location app is not there for me.

  • Chandra Prakash Meena

    does it support moto g4 plus

  • blackpierce_

    If i don’t want to root my android lollipop, is it possible to still follow the above steps to hack and play without problems? Also will any damage be caused to my phone if I activate developer options? It warned me when I try to activate it. Thanks.

  • Anon

    Using a ZTE grand x3 on 5.1.1 and whenever I enable mock location and launch Pokemon go it says location not detected? Is there a fix for this

    • Change GPS setting to “Device only”. Restart Fake GPS app, it will be fixed.

  • Gideon Strydom

    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 ?

  • Gideon Strydom

    I have done everything. But my Go keeps saying Location not detected. Thrn I turn of Mock locations and it works again. How can I solve this

  • Madyson

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

  • Cooper

    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.

    • Just don’t do strange activities like jumping too long. Walking at very high speed.

  • captain crunch
  • captain crunch

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

  • camus

    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

      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

        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

    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

    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

    Was the joystick shut down?

  • Shermanloww

    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?

    • AwZ667

      You got a softban. Spin a pokestop near your IRL location 40-50 times to get rid of it.

  • Shermanloww

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

    • Try clearing cache of Fake GPS & restarting everything again.

  • Aw Snap

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

    • Maybe because of Soft ban. Did you jump too far in short period?

      • Hisano Xelax

        I only just downloaded it and same issue, didn’t even get chance to try it. game says “failed to detect location”. turned gps app off and still having same problems in game :'(

    • Hisano Xelax

      Same here

  • Audrone Audra

    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

    • You are running Android Marshmallow? If yes, try restarting your device.

  • Jesse Grimoldby

    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?

    • Are you using any RAM Cleaner App or anything to kill background app? This might be the only reason for this issue.

  • Matt

    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

        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

        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

    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.

    • Android version?

      • Nicci Skott

        I have this same issue.
        I am on the latest version of Android on Galaxy s6.

  • Tin

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

    • It still works perfectly fine. Try reinstalling the app.

  • Piotr Lamprecht

    @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?

  • Stuart Vizor

    I cant seem to get pokeballs from poestops using this nor catch pokemon because they seem to have become alot harder can anybody help

  • Stuart Vizor

    I can seem to go into other countrys and move around catch pokemon but i cant seem to use the pokestops and gyms please help as i need pokeballs and hyper potions

  • blackpierce_

    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_

    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?

    • Fake GPS app work only in Android M & above. We’re working out & trying to come out with ways to get the old Lollipop hack working. 🙂

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

    • Just don’t jump too long to make things look natural. If you are moved back to previous location, keep GPS to “Device only”.

  • Matt

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

  • Dakota

    @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

    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 ?

      I am having the same issue switching back and forth between actual and spoofed location with Note5.

  • Brooke

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

    • Nope, it won’t work. Root your device & use the hack for rooted device.

  • SuzieQ

    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

    i don’t see mock location app anywhere

  • Shredon 123

    I can’t find where it says “select mock location app”
    i just see “enable mock location” ON/OFF

    • You’re running Android lollipop version.

      • Phillip Jarrells

        what do we got to do to get mock location app

        • Mock location app allows you to fake your device’s location.

  • Luka

    When i go to developer options i select mock location but i can’t set any app like you did.Help

    • jexll

      you need to upgrade your android

  • Shen

    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?

    • Shredon 123

      Same here

    • Kluster9

      Same too

  • Dre

    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

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

  • FTW

    it works but all the pokemon runs away 🙁

    • Sam Phillips

      I’m the same all pokemon run away ?

      • FTW

        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

      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.

      • FTW

        Thanks now it work perfectly, i can use it safely 🙂

  • Rachel

    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

    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

        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.

        • Don’t jump too much. Avoid jumping to locations, just use the joystick feature majorly to avoid any ban.

      • Dakota

        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

    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?

    • Select “mock location app” is in Android Marshmallow and above.

      • Double A

        So, even though I get the joystick overlay and can move around google maps ok Pokemon won’t work”

  • Chris Champion

    Is there any danger of being banned with this method?

    • Yup! 30% chances of temporary ban.

        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

        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?

  • John

    It works for moto g4 play?

  • beck

    Work on Android 7.0

  • Haxzor

    There is no (play with joystick in pokemon Go) option on the run gps tab

  • naman gupta

    bro any hack works on android 5.1.1 ? with joystick

  • Bartman

    When the niantic symbol is loading the joystick disapears.
    Please Help me.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      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

    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.)
    I also have it on High Accuracy. 🙁

  • Mlcunp

    I am currently running on an android system where i cant upgrade to marshmallow, i tried downloading the fake GPS joystick and it would show me the error of location not detected. if anyone else is having this problem please let me know what i should do.. thnx

  • ryan

    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

    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.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Nope. It still works perfectly fine! 🙂

  • David

    How do i turn Joystick Mode back on? I don’t have the option to select “Joystick Location Mode(Pokemon)” to get the Joystick pad.

  • ARYAN Pradhan

    These guys shut it shown!!

  • Ray

    So today I went to use FlyGPS and when I try to enable to joystick mode it says

    Joystick service shut down
    The joystick has been shut down.
    You can not use the joystick mode.

    Anybody know what happened? How to fix it? Have the same issue?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Please try the updated guide.

      • Raymond Corbiere

        Thank you so much. I didn’t see it before.

  • Joseph W Rogers

    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

      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.

  • Jordan w

    Need help It can’t find location? There’s no option for pokemon joystick location mode either??

    • Frank Yank

      Do you have Android Marshmallow (6.0+)? If not, this will not work.

  • winner

    Pokestops and pokemon don’t show up

  • Frank Yank

    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.

    • Mark Huttman

      What did you download and how did you do it? Please help, I have the same phone as you

  • Cristian

    Amigo…..Alguna solucion que el joystick me dura con suerte 3 minutos….y luego vuelvo a la posicion original…No se como resolverlo

  • hardy

    What to do its not showing Pokemon’s or pokestops

  • hardik meena

    It says “location was not detected”

  • DeftCandango

    When I try to play with fly GPS the pokemons that i’m catch doesnt have defined location. Appears only two commas. Someone can explain why and how to fix it?

    • Frank Yank

      This is the ONLY problem I’m having right now. Everything else works fine.

  • Kingfloris

    Cool but it works not

  • Manda

    This WORKS!! 😀 Samsung S7 Edge

  • Tibby

    I think they already found about this. I installed it last night about 1 AM and I kept playing really good until this morning at 6 AM. 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

      SO bad, you are banned.

    • Elijah

      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

      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

      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.

  • Loquitur

    Work perfectly on S6 Edge 6.0, Thx so much.

    • Dam

      Why not working on note5?

  • Sam

    Didn’t work. It remains loading in the account selection screen. I have lollipop.

    • Frank Yank

      This procedure only works for Android Marshmallow (6.0+).

  • Chris

    Works fine for me other than I occasionally get rubber banned back to my original location. Any thoughts on how to fix that?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Don’t jump to far away places from your current location.

      • jason

        i get this problem too….is there no way around it other than that?

      • Dtp

        Im having the same issues as others, with the momentary flickering of my original location, what could be causing this?

    • Free

      You should not use for across countries, or far locations. Otherwise, you will be banned.

  • Flynn

    I managed to do all the steps but the only thing that doesnt work is that on top of my screen it says, “Failed to detect location”. This makes the joystick not work nor does it let any Pokemons spawn. Please someone help!!!

    • Flint

      Same here. My joystick works but no pokemon spawns, why? And how do i fix this?

    • Edwin

      Can somebody plz help me. The hack works but I don’t find any pokemon and on top it says “failed to locate location”. Plz somebody help.

    I want hack

  • Anil

    Try this app – Along with joystick movement you can set the route and egg will hatch.



    Who has ROOT can use the PSEUDO GPS.
    It works like FakeGPS but has directional to move on the map.

    I repeat needs ROOT.

  • HELP!

    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?!?

    • Cristian

      Same thing happend to me

    • Real speedy

      Go to a pokestop and spin same one up to 40 times, its just a soft ban

      • Leo

        Does this actually work? I’ve span it loads of times and nothing happens. Do i have to wait a certain amount of time?

  • FLX

    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

      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

        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

    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.

    • Jason

      anyone gotten a PERMA BAN from using this app so far?


    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

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

      • Treffx

        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.

        • Dan

          So how to …? Please 🙂
          It can be done on a rooted s4 i9505 with 5.1 ?

  • Daniel

    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!

    • Anonymous

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

  • Danya.

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

    Ok so I’m using Samsung Note 5 without rooting my phone and it works fine. There was this once that I went too great a distance and got softbanned but I settled it already and now I’m careful about the distances, but I would like to know can Niantic detect my spoofing if I DON’T root my phone? Or is rooting a must to avoid bans?

    Much thanks.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Rooting does have an advantage over non-rooted hack. Yes rooting can help you hide your spoofing from Pokemon GO servers.

      • James

        Hello i have just done this hack and tried to catch about 30 pokemon even a 10cp pidgey everytime they break out and run no matter what can this be fixed or can you shed some light as to why its happening ??

    • Nemo

      Yah me too. I did all the steps but still could not be detected

      • StrainEli

        Same. It also warns that it would not work properly with settings as they are (the settings instructed) when selecting joystick (Pokemon)

  • Poor Guide

    Pokemongo knows you’ve enabled mock locations…. poor guide.
    You need a hide mock location tool which requires root and xposed.

    • Antu

      had the same issue.
      Fixed by getting into the settings for the phone and Applications>>Application manager>>Pokemon GO>>Permissions
      The Location permission was set to off, I turned it on and it worked after restart of Pokemon GO application.
      Good luck!

  • yun

    for those complaining dont have set mock location app is because this app only for android (Marshmallow) version 6.0 and 6.0.1

    only Marshmallow can install and run this.. other than that it cannot run, unless they upgraded the app

  • bhavya

    Gps was set to high accuraty plz help

  • bhavya

    I have allowed mock locations also downloaded fly GPS ,started the service but when I started the pokemon go the joystick appeared but it said cannot detect location and I cannot find pokemons using the joystick

  • Rei marenta

    Im not tryin it yet,but my experience says if you enable *allow mock location* then your pokemon go will show *failed to detect location* and if you unable back the *allow mock location* it will go back to your original location.
    Fake gps need to *allow mock location* and because you *allow mock location* it will show *failed to detect location*.
    You can go here and there using joystick but you will do nothing.

    Answer me what to do with (no root) & lollipop condition,and if that works ill share this link post as much as posible to everywhere

        i make the gps to high accuracy but still facing same problem

  • TheIrishman366

    So what do you do if your mock gps doesnt give you the option to select an app it’ll only turn on. Because it doesnt seem to work without being able top select fly gps but mine won’t let me

  • Rock

    I think youre missing a step in this whole thing. On
    “Step 3. Go back to Settings > Developer options. Locate “Select mock location app” & select Fly GPS (com.fly.gps)”
    The option you show on both the instructions and images [Select mock location app], does not appear on my “Developer Options” instead just an “Allow mock locations” is the only one available and does not give me the option to select “Fly GPS”, when tapped on it, it only checks it as it’s on.
    I am also using the Andriod version 5.0.2 which should be the latest one right now, so what’s the problem are you using a different type of setting?
    I also seen you mention the marshmallow thing, which I have no idea what it could be. Maybe explain it and if it’s necesary add it to the steps for making this work?

    • Rock

      Btw, when used by just selection the only mock option, the same message mostly everyone gets shows up:
      “Its showed Pokemon Joystick Warning.This version does not work correctly lowered.(Masimelrowoo) to normal operation only in later version!.”

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Android Marshmallow is the latest Android version which allows “Allow mock location app”

      • Rock

        Your guide in no where says you need the using the andriod version marshmallow.
        I tried upgrading my andriod but it says it’s upgraded to latest version 5.0.2
        So what now? how to get that marshmallow andriod? (without any roots)

    Joystick is not coming. help!!

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Android version? It works perfectly in Marshmallow.

      • Phoenix

        I don’t think this works with Lollipop, that’s what I’m running and I get the no gps signal banner. I’m sure it’s just because PGO notices that mock locations are allowed and blocks me from the game. Any suggestions?

    • Louis Chim

      go to the app permission and allow pop up display window

  • Vinoth

    • Jack sam

      Hello? Anyone? Help please same problem here

    • Louis Chim

      well you need to go to the app permission and allow pop up display window

  • Its work s4 android 5.0.1 but not showing any pokemon and pokestop and gym..why…

  • Tips

    For softbans spin pokestop 40-60 times… your welcome :-)… and also any calls, texts, rotating the map will likely trigger teleporting home…moving very slow triggers pokemon go app to spin white loading ball and if you ever teleport home while loading ball spins you’ll be softbanned. Teleporting home isnt bad in your own neighborhood as you wont likely get softbanned. Jumping long distances like state to state in short times will almost likely result in a softban because who travels that far in under such a small amont of time. Haven’t heard of any confirmed permabans. I think they’ll tackle scanners before spoofing due to increased server load. And remember Always clear google location history


    Doesn’t work on my phone. Running 6.0.1. After installation, setting mock location, setting high accuracy for GPS, restarting, it still won’t (fly gps app) open. What to do..

  • Jim

    I can’t get this to work on my s4 the developer options only has the mock location I can’t set it to an app. Is there a way to fix this

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Android version?

      • hoho

        i downloaded the marshmallow 6.0 on my android samsung s5 but it still says failed to detect location.

        • Devs-Lab Staff

          Did you allow app from Mock locations in Developer options?

      • mike

        I did for my galaxy s4 and it just says gps cannot be found

  • Nate

    Would just like to let everyone know that this worked for me on my S5.

    My only complaint is that it frequently teleports me back to my actual location- but only briefly, before teleporting me to the set location once more.

    Because of this, I’ve been softbanned multiple times. Considering what this has allowed me to do, I am definitely willing to wait out the softbans.

    I mean, there could be much worse consequences.

    • Nyc

      Same happens to me. I’m trying a few things to see if I can fix but if anyone else finds a fix let us know plz!

      • lex

        to remove soft bans, tap on pokestop and spin 40 individual times.

    • Redline

      I can’t find a way to choose Fly GPS as my mock location app on my S5. I assume that’s why it says “Failed to detect location” and shows me somewhere with no pokestops. How did you get around this?

    • MissMagic

      Same is happening to me and causing soft ban. Will have to try something else I guess as I cannot find a way to stop it. Even using it to go 10m from my house it teleports me briefly back home every now and then.

  • Funny

    Fake GPS doesn’t work in Android 5. You have to upgrade to Android 6!

  • CrossYou

    Hi new update is out has anyone tested to see if it still works??

    Please do have a hack for android lollipop

  • Tyler

    Worked to mock location. Went to central park from oklahoma. Thing is pokestops will not give anything and all pokemon escape and run away instantly. Any ideas why?

    • Trey

      Same happend to me i went to san Francisco bay from KC and same thing happend

    • John

      Same thing here, I started using the service, I got like 3 pokestops and caught a magikarp, then suddenly no pokestops work and every pokemon breaks put and runs immediately.

    • John

      It’s a soft ban, the game noticed you went from one location to another far away in a short time so now you have a temporary soft ban

    • Dan

      It means your banned…. Google “pokemon go softban”

    • Matan

      Same .

  • dani

    hi . I have a samsung A7 and step 3 “Select mock location app” isnt in the settings but instead you can tick Allow mock location. Every time i do this it takes you to the destination but says failed to detect location (I have also set location to high accuracy). Anyone know how to fix this?

      Where ?

  • Jaded

    I have tried all avenues to root my phone to no avail. I have a Samsung s5 gm900v Running 5.0 the app works great on my bfs phone s7 edge which is of course running marshmallow. I use cricket as a service provider and the 6.0 update will be months away. Fake GPS allowed me to change my location and Pokemon go works however I can not move around as that app has no joystick. I am curious of anyone has another option for me. I do not have a pc so the only way to attempt root is through the phone itself however I have tried over a dozens websites and apps to root it but can not. I don’t need to cheat to play but it’s nice to use when at my office (or home) that are both rural and I can’t leave and have time to kill between work activities or on breaks.

    How do i turn off Fly GPS again?
    even if i uninstall the app my GPS location is still stock in the last location i sat in the fly gps app…

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Tap on the service running notification in status bar.

  • Nicholas

    So, i did by step by step, but i have no option such as select mock apk, only enable or disadble. I tried it anyway, high accuraty, downloaded everything, enabled mock location, but it says: Failed to find your location. After i disabled the mock location and found myself at my origine location. i have no idea what to do, i don’t want to root either.

  • Akshay

    I use a samsung galaxy E7 (GT-E700H) with android lollipop 5.1.1!

        • Devs-Lab Staff

          Enable high accuracy.

  • Al

  • Angel

    Ok so the thing is suddenly pokemon go is not detecting my location….with or without the fake gps….i dont know what to do..can anyone help? Pls :'(

    • Vijay

      Change in your location settings

      Settings>locations>mode > to high accuracy

      • BlackElendur

        i have same problem,

        Change setting to high accuracy and still does’nt work. On Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

        • Jonteo

          Switch off enable mock location

  • Michael August

    For anyone having issues with getting softbanned go into an unused pokestop, spin, exit the pokestop, enter it again, spin it, and exit. Repeat this process about 40 times and the ban should stop. The shorter you jump the less spins it seems to take

  • Kichamp

    This doesn’t works for LG G4. Is there another alternative?

    • macpaper

      it works fine for my lg g4

  • Kay

    My phone does not have the select mock location app setting but has enable mock location. When I choose to enable mock location and run Pokémon go it says unable to detect location… What do I do?

    • Vijay

      Open pokemon go and in the background go on settings and disable mock locations make sure both run on same time

    • fikri

      I have the same damn problem. God help us. Im using zenfone 5 kitkat.

  • Al

    It says failed to detect location

  • Pokespaniard

    For kitkat, select fix localitation option, joystick doesnt work. Then unmark mock locallitation and go to pokemon go. It works for me, but cant move avatar. If your gps detect your real localitation, you teleport and can ban, try a “faraday cage” with foil in your phone. Sorry 4 my english
    PD: select locallitation history in ubication options

  • TripleTriple

    Joystick works great but there are no pokestop gyms or anything so i am walking on a road doing nothing any way to get passed this?

  • WInslowerDanDirt

    For step 3 it says select mock location app and select fly gps but I cannot find fly gps

    • WInslowerDanDirt

      I have Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE btw

  • Baseblade

    This hack has not worked at all from the 0.31.0 update even if you clear you cache uninstall anything

  • aron

    I cant do step 3 because i dont have the pokemon go option under developer

  • Navam

    It says unable to detect location

    • Neur

      same problem with me..

  • Caden

    I try to catch anything and it runs away, I used a razz berry and a great ball on a weedle and it ran away, why?

    • Ricky Spanish

      You have been softbanned. I.e banned for a couple of hours.

    • Ricky

      Did you teleport to a far distance place? Your account just got softbanned by niantic

      Try googling softbanned

  • Andrew

    Unfortunately I keep bouncing back to my actual location, and I’m afraid of a soft/hard ban. It seems like every 5 minutes this happens.

    Another thing I noticed is that the tracker does not display Pokemon that are nearby the mock location, I think it’s attempting to show me the Pokemon close to my actual location.

    Hopefully the App developer can fix this. It seems to be the case with a couple of the GPS Spoofing apps out there right now. When you check reviews for apps of this nature it seems to be a common issue.

    How many others have had softbans from this?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      There’s been few such cases in non-rooted devices.

    • Ludio

      I was having the same issue. It seems when other apps in the background call to use mobile location your phone sets your location to your actual area. I noticed everytime I took a screen shot it would move me. So I went to disable location. for camera and just did it for EVERYTHING except fly gps and pokemon go. I have s7 with marsh. I went to privacy and safety, then app permissions. You will see location x out of y apps allowed. If you hit that you can deselect them all. It’s been working for me for awhile, but still need to do some testing to be 100% sure. Remember to turn it back on for apps you need when you are done. I’m sure you could spend a little time and isolate which apps do it but this is a start.

      • Murderface69

        I did what Lucio did and my location keeps jumping from spoofed to actual. I am using my mobile data network. Yesturday I was on wifi I did not notice it jumping at all. Maybe it depends on if connected by wifi or mobile data.

    • Dante

      Unfortunately I got banned twice using this app.

  • Ash

    I have an Alcatel One Touch Fierce XL and there is also no option to select the mock location app. Only the option to allow mock location. I have set it to high accuracy as well. It still says it fails to detect location.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Are you running Android Marshmallow?

      • PokeNoHoMo

        Me to , i only can “tick” allow mock location but can’t select apps . even i follow the instruction well , the app will say couldnt locate …

  • Joe strong

    Stops you from catching Pokemon and doesn’t allow you to access the stops

    • Devin


    • Michael August

      That’s because you probably have a soft ban. Try going into a pokestop, spinning, editing out, and repeat this process at an unused pokestop until it gives you things

  • purvesh

    I have a oneplus x with Android version 5.0.1. When in developer mode in the setting I select the allow mock location I get no option to select a application. The result is that when I open pokemon go I get a error that says ‘failed to detect location’. Any idea how to get passed this?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      This hacks work in Android Marshmallow and above.

      • Clyde

        soi have Android version 5.1.1 Lolipop it wont work correctly? Says Failed to detect location and goes back to original location after i move.

    Ive just downloaded the fake gps which didnt work and now my pokemon go just says failure to locate gps and doesnt work at all? I have a samsung a3 and really struggling to figure out how to fix this?

    • lisa

      You need to go into settings –> developer —> uncheck allow mock locations.

      drove me nuts trying to fix it too

    • David

      Turn off mock locations

  • Achalk

    I am using android 5 in asus zenfone 6 and installed fly gps but when ever I use pokemon go it shows loaction not detected..I set the location settings to high accuracy and even checked the mock location option..what to do now..please help me..thank you

  • N. Buck

    I’m having the same problem as lori, poke stops don’t work and everything escapes. Even when I went back to using my default gps the game still won’t let me. Any ideas?

    • Ludio

      you were softbanned, wait an hour or so or spin the coin at pokestops like I said on her post. it works, trust me. or you can wait up to you.

  • Ak

    I have note 5 with mashmellow. No HIGH ACCURACY setting. Just IMPROVE ACCURACY via wifi and BT. But sometimes it wont let me catch any or collect from pokestops….???

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Clear Pokemon GO’s cache & check if it works.

    • lalalulu

      u should read every single comment. be hardworking.

  • Ken

    This works until my 6.0 galaxy s6 seems to reset the gps to the real location for a few seconds every so often. Presumably using data from the mobile network. I’ve tried fly gps with only gps selected as a “mode” in location settings but then fly gps won’t run the spoofing. It says to activate gps in fly gps. The app only works when I’ve selected “gps, wifi and mobile network” as the location option. Additional accuracy options “wifi” and “bluetooth” are off.

  • Ludio

    Sometimes it will jump to where I actually am using mobile for location. Doing it around where I am is OK, but if I go somewhere far away I get softbanned because of the jumps even if I allow plenty of time in between. is there a way to get gps only and not mobile location?

  • Aaron

    There are no Poke Stops and pokemon ?

  • Sophia

    I have a Samsung galaxy A3 with Android version 5.0.2. When in developer mode in the setting I select the allow mock location I get no option to select a application. The result is that when I open pokemon go I get a error that says ‘failed to detect location’. Any idea how to get passed this?

  • Liezel

    In settings I do not have the option to “select mock applications app”. I only have the option “allow mock locations”. If I still follow all the other apps I do start off in the location as chosen but Pokemon says “failed to detect location”. If I then untick “allow mock locations” Pokemon will find my location but I cannot use the joystick.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Did you allow “High Accuracy in GPS”

    • James

      When in have and getting error, don’t leave gave but pull down screen and click location off and on and then play

  • Kunal Kartik

    Plz help. I use fly GPS but pokemon go says location not detected. Plz help I beg plzz. I have android 5.0.1

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Did you set the location to high accuracy?

  • Aditya

    This might work on marshmallow but not on KitKat. enabling the mock location option freezes the Pokémon app as it detects the spoof. Any bypass or way to hide the mock location option??

    • Ludio

      Make sure you download the right apk, this mod allows you to mock location without the game knowing. It is not the official app for pokemon go.

    • Chirag

      Use xposed Framework module

  • Lori

    gets you to destination, but stops dont work and any pokemon you try to get goes POOF after it escapes from ball.

    • Ludio

      This is when the game softbans you. it has detected that you are faking gps. Go to a pokestop and spin it. Nothing will happen the first time, but exit the stop by hitting the x at bottom, click the stop again, then spin again, exit, repeat. Do this up to 40 times and you’re back in it. It seems like it requires less spins when you don’t jump as far. I know it sounds like BS, but it works.

      • James

        Or you could just wait 5mins to 4 hrs, depends on how big of a jump

    • Shawn

      Same here 🙁

  • Ricz

    I’m an android user but in my Developer Options there is one option to mark which is: “Allow mock operations”…

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      You can only find this option in Android M & above.

    I don’t have set mock location app :/

    • Bossun

      Go to about phone- then tap build number 7 times, back out then developer option
