Time Warner App for Rooted and Unrooted ICS 4.0 Android devices

Time Warner Cable for rooted Android AppA couple of days back there was good news for Time Warner lovers. The company has been reported to update Time Warner Android app. The support as mentioned will help in streaming TV on Android 4.0 devices. But there was a negative part as well in this news and that was, this update was only for unrooted Android devices. For rooted devices, this facility was not available. It is true that Time Warner is not the only company that have discriminated the rooted users. Many other companies did similar things in past.

If you think you are quite smart and you will use the new feature in CM9 and effectively tie the root access then you must know that, in spite of such efforts, you won’t do anything good. You are still under a check. The app will block the stream in this case this app detects the root or checks if the device is rooted by quickly searching the superuser.apk in the /system/app. It also checks to see if the build.prop files have any test keys in it.

But as we know where there is a will, there is a way, the will of XDA member B00sted, was quite high and he wanted to make the app available to the rooted users as well. Thus along with other forum members, he took up action towards releasing a modified application. Thanks to this modified app that even the rooted users will be able to use Time Warner app.
