Sky sports app won't play on rooted android device

I'm trying to watch sky sports on my android phone (its a Chinese phone, made by umi, its called an umi iron handset) but whenever I try, it keeps saying 'sky sports does not support rooted android devices'?? Any help appreciated. I've tried a root cloak app for my handset but no joy. Thanks in anticipation

Re: Sky sports app won't play on rooted android device

You could try installing SuperSU by Chainfire from the play store. You may already have it installed as you are rooted. It can perform temporary unrooting and total unrooting. Temp unroot probably won't fool the sky sports App but you can give it a go. Full unroot doesn't always work but worth a try. Obviously once root is lost you lose the benefits but I'm assuming you aren't bothered about that. If this doesn't work you may want to see if you can find a forum on the internet for your device as many obscure Chinese phones and tablets do have them and you may get some help unroofing your phone there.

Looks like SuperSU may work after all. But other methods explained too.
