Pokemon GO hack for Lollipop TuTu App
Pokemon GO hack for Lollipop TuTu App

Pokemon GO has taken over the Internet like a storm. Most of us might have visited almost every nearby places in search of Pokemon but still can’t catch most of the Pokemon. Its fun to play Pokemon GO until you visit almost everywhere you can. What after that? Why waste your time & efforts just to catch virtual Pokemon? I know its fun. But there’s always a point where you get really exhausted & give up. That’s when you enjoy hacking the game! We have already published Pokemon GO hacks for rooted & for Non-rooted devices.

Then why write this one? Well the other Non-Rooted guide is for Android Marshmallow (6.0) & above devices only. If you are using Lollipop or Kitkat & can’t follow the steps mentioned in that guide, you can refer to this new hack for Pokemon GO Lollipop & Kitkat.

Update 27 September 2016 – 100% Working now!

Please follow the new method as mentioned below. Uninstall all the previous installations of TuTu App & Pokemon GO game. Make sure to delete everything completely.

  1. TuTu Android App: Download | Mirror
  2. Pokemon GO modded v0.39.0: (You’ll find the app in TuTu app but if in case TuTu again removes the app, you can download it from here. I would recommend you to download it from TuTu): Download
  3. Android device running Android Kitkat (4.4) & above.
  4. Uninstall all the previous Pokemon GO app  & TuTu installations.

Note: We won’t be held responsible for anything happening to your Pokemon GO account. You’re solely responsible for your decision to hack this game. This hack won’t harm your device in any way.

How to hack Pokemon GO without rooting in Android Kitkat & above

Step 1. Go to Settings App> Security> Enable installation from unknown sources.

Step 2. Install the TuTu app downloaded from above link. (If you get any warnings while installation, just ignore & allow installation to complete. We have not yet faced any issues with this app.)

Step 3. Once you have installed the TuTu App, download the Pokemon GO modded app.

Step 5. Go to Settings >Location & services > Make sure GPS mode is set to High Accuracy.

Step 6. Launch Pokemon GO app & allow all necessary permissions.

Step 7. It will open window to allow apps to draw over other apps, just find Pokemon GO from the list & allow “drawing over other apps”.

After everything is done, its time to test the hack. Launch the Pokemon GO app & you’ll find a beautiful Joystick floating over the original game. Sign in to your Pokemon GO account. You can also refer below video to understand everything 

As Android Lollipop & below versions doesn’t have “Select mock locations app” you can’t use the Joystick without rooting. Make sure you don’t jump to too far locations after each switch or else you’ll face soft ban i.e for 30 minutes, you can’t catch Pokemon.

I know its a bit pain to perform all this to change locations but the limitations of Android Lollipop & below won’t let you do anything. I would suggest you to Root your device if you’re using it for quite a time. There’re many advantages of rooting. Let us know if this worked for you. If you’re still facing any issue, you can report about it in comment section below.

  1. Everything was correct and worked as said but game will not launch. Says Pokemon go has a new update and it directs me to the play store.

  2. is there a working hack already for kitkat and lollipop.?? help please.. its been 2 weeks since i played..

  3. just wanna ask if the hack is now working for android 6.0 below.?? its been a week since i got to play.. hope they update it already badly wanna play..

  4. Hi admin.
    I’d like to know why when i download the pokemon go from TuTu app it says “Pokemon GO” ?
    I dont even see the joystick or anything, Pls help.

    • You can’t download pokemon go(hacked) anymore from tutu app because they took it off and the one you get from this site won’t work because it says it needs to update

    • I think its because the modded app is available only in some countries, not all. Those who dont live in these countries will download the normal app, not the modded. Tried to follow these steps using UK proxy but still nothing. Im confused

  5. I have problem i download TuTu and from TuTu got pokemon go, on my alcatel one touch pop 3 (5), if i opened this and logged, joystick not opened Just clear pokemon go, any sugestion?

  6. Unfortunately this does not work. Even tried factory reset on my Note5/Android 6.01 phone. Installed tutu, downloaded pokemon go through tutu, installed, allowed privileges, started app from tutu, no overlay screen just regular game now updated to 0.39.1 (didnt even ask to update).
    If i download pokemon go through your alternate download link in your instructions, it downloads 0.35 which does then allow the overlay, but you cannot logon and play.
    Thanks for the effort though.

  7. I have android 4.4 (Kitkat) and I am having trouble with the process. When I open the Pokemon Go app, it doesn’t ask me to allow necessary permissions. Also, I cannot find “Draw over other apps” option and the joystick overlay does not show up.

  8. Im using android 5.0 lollipop (NOTE3). I followed all steps but no joystick & no “draw” coming out. At times, cant even open PokemonGo App. Then i tried opening Developer Option & Allow Mock Loc; joystick appeared when open PokemonGo App but “UNABLE TO DETECT LOCATION” even after set it to HIGH ACCURACY and im stuck at PokemonGo SignIn loading page.

    Please advice

  9. Followed the steps above but not working. Pokemon go app attached here is version 0.35.0, eventhough it says 0.39.0 on the article. The pokemon go app 0.39.1 from tutu has no joystick, just like the original one from play store. Please fix it.

  10. I installed TutuApp and downloaded Pokemon Go. However, there was no Step 6&7! When i opened the game there is no Joystick nor the floating thingy at the top.. Zenfone2 Android Lollipop user here!

  11. is there any other method other than tutu app because im in lvl 28 and dont want to play from starting bcoz tutu app only acept ptc acount no gmail login available.

  12. Not working since the 0.39.1 update. Hacked app will not run, it is forcing you to update the latest version.

    Tried all the steps above but none work.

    • this is a lie its a old video it says as of sept.27th but that cant be because its update 0.39.1 this is for 0.39.0 this is old dont listen to this website or video

  13. pokemon go at tutu app is not working its not yet updated.?? im using android 5.0 when i log in PTC its telling me that there a new version of pokemon go continue to update.?? pokemon go in tutu app is still 0.35..

  14. Tested September 27th 2016 at 4:48 us eastern time. Android 5.1.1. Was not working due to update issue before and i found this article. I uninstalled everything as was said in the instructions and re downloaded tutu app and the 0.35.0 pokemon mod. After the install i resigned in and as soon as that was finished it was still asking for the update. I did it a second time clearing all caches and still the same outcome. THIS DOES NOT WORK.

  15. Unfortunately still says I need to update Pokémon Go to continue. Will keep checking to see if a new version comes out, hopefully it will, I’ll have a phone with 6.0 on at some point but for now this would be perfect, if it’d work!

  16. I was not able to use my Google but was able to use a pokemon trainer account. Was able to get my account up to level 18 within a couple hours but by that evening the app started asking for an update. Looks like issues happen off and on so I’m sure a fix is on its way.

  17. It no longer works. But the tutu aplication is interesting. Keep an eye on it.
    thank you very much for this post 😉

  18. It works on me, i signed in using PTC, not google. But there is a problem, whenever i signed in, it will point to somewhere in chinatown san francisco, I am in singapore. So to the guys in devs-lab, is there anyway when i start pokemon go, the program will default to my location in singapore? Thanks!

  19. hi, I have android 5.1 and tried downloading the tutuapp, but unfortunately it keeps says “cant open file” please help…

    • I had this issue. Clear your cache of all files, as well as all remnants of the original file that you downloaded… Make sure you also force stop before you do this. Then redownload and it will work. Took me awhile to figure this out.

  20. Has always worked for me but now it’s asking to update to a new version of the Pokemon Go app. Leads to the Playstore. What to do?

  21. When I have mock locations on,it actually works-i can move and pokestops show up,etc but it crashes after like 20 seconds 🙁 When i turn it off,it says Failed to detect location and nothing shows up

  22. Cheers. I managed to log in using a Pokemon Trainer Account. But inside the app I constantly get the message: “Cannot Detect Location”. I have maintained the option to allow fake locations in my Phone. Anyone knows a solution?

  23. Hi there

    Followed the steps but I can’t log into the modded Pokemon Go app. Gets to the loading screen, I select Google account sign in and it does not log into the app. Just stays at the loading screen permanently. How can I resolve this issue?

    • It does not work with a Google account. I had the same problem. I had to start from the beginning with a new email address.

    • It doesnt work for me neither, so just log in with the poke trainer account. It will take one day to level up to like lvl 10

  24. It works like a charm.. However I often find myself entering the latitide and longitude coordinates every session otherwise I automatically spawn in San Francisco.. resulting in a soft ban.

  25. I can’t use the joystick can some one help. It doesn’t allow me to go into my pokemon setting and do that thing he did to use the joystick.

    • If you already have the tutuapp and downloaded the modded pokemon go, every time you launch that modded pokemon go, there should be a joystick on the bottom

  26. Followed step and got it working… Sort of working. I can move, spin, collect pokemon, but cant battle. Whenever i enter a gym i freeze up when it says “GO”

  27. Please help me. I did all the steps needed. When I launch pokemon go app it doesn’t let me log in into my account. It just keep loading and the “GPS signal not found” keeps reappearing. Please help me. There is no pokestops near me I have to commute 3 hours to go to the nearest pokestop. Please!

  28. I tried it in the first method. Everything works fine except that it keep putting me in San Francisco. Even when I click on my location it goes back to Union square San Francisco.

  29. The first day the app worked fine, but now i cant spin any pokestops, the pokemon never stay in the ball and as soon as they get out of it they always run away. And I cant be in any gym battles, an “error” line pops upp (it looks the same as the “GPS not found line). Does this happen to other people? If so did you solve it? Please. Help me.

    • That’s what happens during a soft ban. Try going within range of a pokestop, spinning it, exiting, and then repeating. It takes 40 times for you to be not soft banned anymore. Try loading your “location” at the screen where you see the gyarados.

  30. Seems like only 1 or 2 individuals here claims it is working. An astonishing number of us here can’t get it work. If you have a updated guide pls provide the link and the revised steps. Gps signal not found or can’t detect location . If you are reading these comments , pls take some time to explain yourself else there is no point in providing this forum . I had to delete everything to revert back to the original Pokemon go. Now that’s a waste of time. Potential users coming in later pls read through the comments posted else you will end up wasting your time with something that doesn’t work!

  31. I tried that fly GPS hack …..it works ….but after sometime joystick disappear….. And I teleported to my original location…..
    Plz give me a solution…..
    Marshmallow 6.0.1

  32. Doesn’t load with Google account sign in. It loads of you use trainer club option. However, the app is unstable and keeps disconnecting me.

  33. Hey guys, I tried using this tutuapp and then the hacked version of pokemon go .. I have android 5.1 so I don’t need it rooted. After having everything installed and allowing mock locations, I can’t sign in.. It just loads forever! Any ideas? Thanks

  34. I’ve use pokemon trainers club account and it was working yesterday. But now, I can still able to login but I can’t see any gyms or pokestops anymore.

  35. I followed a steps but every time I open the app it says Unfortunately Pokemon Go has stopped? I don’t know what I did wrong? Anyone can help me?

  36. Hey if your game isnt loading and just keeps showing the spinning pokeball icon, sign in under pokemon trainer club. Worked for me

  37. Followed each step correctly as best I could, but my phone doesn’t allow me to change app permissions (5.0.1 Lollipop), and when the Pokemon Go mod is downloaded, no window pops up whatsoever for me to allow it go over other apps. And then the game endlessly loads. I’m extremely disappointed in this, especially since most things in this guide I couldn’t even follow anyway, even though I’m higher than 4.4. And only a few people claimed it worked.

  38. Keep getting GPS NOT FOUND, also i can see streets just not seeing Pokemon or stops. I’ve tried enabling mock locations and disabling them… I’m running on 5.1 lollipop.

  39. Just downloaded new app (Tongbu Tui) but it asks me to download Pokemon Helper before getting the Pokemon Go app

  40. this is not working ..

    i follow all the instruction but the tutu app ? no pokemon go applocation what should i do to download the latest moded pokemon go .

  41. The app that you said to download has updated or something because the first application you see isnt Pokemongo.

  42. I keep getting spawned in the same location as you in the video. I can’t get to where I’m currently located

  43. Not working.
    It spawned me to the desired place but with no pokestop, no gym, no pokemon or whatsoever.
    #lollipop user

  44. Same problem here.

    I am not sure the VPN stuff… how to turn on or off and what is VPN Cloud? Another apps that need to be downloaded?

    I am not in USA country, any idea can choose Asian country?

    I follow other steps and end with GPS signal not found… and I still standing at my actually current location…

    Anyone can help and/or have any other solution and apps to used?

  45. I did follow the instructions also and it always says that “gps not found” when i read again the instruction, i got curious on this phrase says that “tap the build no. 7 times” ? What is that ?

    • Go to Settings > About Phone > Device Information > tap 7 times on Build Number, a new ‘Developer options’ should show up with “Now you’re a developer” message.

  46. I have the same problem. I followed all the steps, and once I open the game, I spawn at my desired location, but it says “GPS signal not found.” Not only that, I find nothing but a vast space with no streets, no bodies of water, and no Pokemon. :'(

  47. I have the same problem. GPS signal not found. But if i use the high accuracy, i manage to spoof to the location no gps error but there is nothing appearing on the map.

  48. I have the same problem. GPS signal not found. But if i use the high accuracy, i manage to spoof to the location no gps error but there is nothing appearing on the map.

  49. Not working for me. Giving me error gps signal not found.p lease help me to get near by gym from my home. Don’t want to go to other locations

  50. Not working for me. Giving me error if I select device option for location. The error is GPS signal not found. I don’t want to go in other countries bt want to go near by gym while sitting in my home. Can you please help on this

    • I got the same thing until I turned off the VPN app. It doesn’t seem to allow internet connection. Should work after that.

      • It worked for you? How? I don’t know what you mean by turning off the VPN app. Will you make the instructions clearer? Thank you! 😀

  51. Does not work for me neither. It says ‘GPS signal not found’. I think because the GPS is set to ‘device only’..
    I managed to change location by selecting ‘allow mock locations’ in Enable Developer options. My position then changed to the chosen destination, but there are no pokestops or gyms and I get the message “Failed to detect location”

  52. I did everything you said it took me to where I wanted to go when mock location was on but as soon as I disabled it I was back at my current location using android lollipop

  53. Hi, i followed exactly ur steps, but after i turned off the mock location, i went back to my real locantion, why?

    im using redmi note 3, miui 8.


  54. if you check the Mock Location, it shows “Cannot Locate the Location” but it moves using joystick, but If you uncheck the Mock Loc. you automatically return to.your current location and the joystick will not work.

  55. Hi. I have tried the steps in “go gps hack for android lollipop kitkat” but the pokemon go gives a msg “GPS signal not found”. I am using android 4.4.4 no root. Please advise. Thank you.

  56. Just tried this out and I made sure that i followed each of the following directions correct. When I launched the game it said GPS Signal not found..
