For those Pokemon Go players who recently got injured or have severe back issues, PokemonGoAnywhere tweak is dedicated to you. Yesterday, we wrote an article on how to bypass the jailbreak detection in the game. If you have successful go through that, installing another Cydia tweak would not be a problem.
If you want to sit around at home yet still be able to walk and run around in Pokemon Go, this jailbreak tweak will allow you to do that.
Here is how it works.
Once you have this tweak installed, which we will show you how to get it in a minute, enter the game and tap on anywhere you want to go to. This isn’t a spoof location mod; it doesn’t let you instantly jump from one place to another. It will only let you tap on the map.
…Since you’re walking around the map, rather than teleporting, it is most likely be harder to detect.
I overwrote the location manager implementation to get it to work. They really have no way of determining if the locations passed in are fake or not. They would need to monitor your location on the server side and decide if the movements are fake. I’d imagine it would be really difficult to create something accurate enough to detect this.
Apart from that, the developer also mention that he will be adding auto walking to Pokemon Go as well (nearby gyms and favorite spots).
Go Anywhere in Pokemon Go Without Actually Walking
Enough of the introduction here is how to install this tweak.
Step 1: Launch Cydia > Reload Sources
Step 2: Just like the previous tweak, this one is hosted on a third-party server so you would add: http://www.williamlcobb.com/repo to your repo list
Step 3: Using the search option, type in PokemonGoAnywhere and install it
And that is all you have to do. The only problem is that you must be facing the North in order for the tweak to work. As described by the developer, he hasn’t been able to find the rotation of the map.
If you don’t have a jailbroken device, I’ll publish another article soon on how to do the same on regular iPhone with no Cydia.
Update #2: Sorry for the long wait, non-jb version is here (Android hack also added into that topic).
