PokemonGoAnywhere is a jailbreak tweak released by developer WilliamLCobb that allows you to tap on the map in Pokemon Go to walk around without having to move in the real world.
For those Pokemon Go players who recently got injured or have severe back issues, this is definitely one of the best solutions.
We already showed you how to bypass the jailbreak detection in Pokemon Go. If you have successful go through that, installing another Cydia tweak wouldn’t be a problem.
Here’s how it works
Once you installed the PokemonGoAnywhere tweak (instructions can be found below), it will let you spoof your location in the game. Do note that it doesn’t take you from one place, such as a city to another. Instead, you can tap on the map to walk and explore the area around you.
If you want to sit around at home yet still be able to walk and run in Pokemon Go, this jailbreak tweak will allow you to do just that.
This is a safer way to faking your location since you’re not moving “too fast too furious”. Unlike the location spoofing method, PokemonGoAnywhere does not transport you from a country say the U.S to Australia. As a result, your Pokemon Go account will less likely to get banned.
Original note from the developer:
…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.
In addition, a new feature called auto walking will be added to this tweak soon.
How to Install PokemonGoAnywhere on your iPhone
- On your iOS device, open the Cydia app
- Select Sources
- Add the following repo: http://www.williamlcobb.com/repo
- Install PokemonGoAnywhere from the source
After restarting your iPhone, the tweak will be enabled right inside your Pokemon Go app. Open the game and start moving without walking in real life.
Doesn’t Work? Here’s the Alternative
If PokemonGoAnywhere stopped working on your iPhone, there is another method that you can use. This method works for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS devices.
Even if you don’t have Cydia, it still works.
PokeGo++ is the official Pokemon Go tweak that is now available as an .IPA file. This means you can download the app and sideload it onto your device using Cydia Impactor.
