the brand new Pokémon GO is enjoying great success thanks to the new augmented reality game mode, which allows you to interact at 360 ° with the surrounding environment. Each Pokémon is found in different places according to its nature: those of water near the sea, lakes, etc., those of fire in hot places or in the presence of sand, those of iron near stations, railways, and so on. In short, you have to walk, walk and walk again to find them all, without considering the Pokéstop, the kilometers needed to hatch the eggs and all the rest.
And if I told you that you can do all this from the comfort of home? Visit the whole city or even more distant places without moving an inch? The solution obviously exists and is functioning at 100%, but there are basically two risks. First, you need to have some experience with the root and Xposed Framework, as your device may suffer a soft brick. The other problem concerns your account in the Pokémon GO game, which could suffer a ban.
It is rumored that the ban is not permanent, but only for a few hours; I don't know for sure, so you will be the one to choose whether to continue with the guide or not. As for the soft brick, however, the solution is there, but we will not talk about it here otherwise the article would be endless. So, if your phone is rooted and if you know what you are doing, run a Nandroid Backup and flasha Xposed Framework, downloading it from the links that follow, along with other necessary applications.
Pokémon GO Android Android Hack
First you need to install the Xposed installer, and the process depends on the Android version of your smartphone:
In the last link, choose sdk21 if you have Android 5.0, sdk22 if you have Android 5.1 and sdk23 for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. So download and install the installer apk, then restart the framework in recovery and flasha; if your phone hasn't exploded yet, you can continue with the guide. 🙂

Applications needed to hack GPS
There are dozens of applications that are able to falsify the position of the GPS and others with some more useful functions even to simulate a shift from one position to another. For these to work, it is necessary to activate the Developer options on our Android device. To do this, go to Settings -> About phone and stop quickly on Build number, until a notification appears to warn you of the activation.
Now you can go back in Settings and above the item Info on the phone find Developer options. Access this menu and search Select fictitious position app. Here you will have to choose the application that we are going to see now.
On older versions of Android, it should instead be called Allow fictitious positions.
The application that I found perfect on my device is called Mock Locations, which perfectly simulates a false position but also the movement from one place to another, with the possibility of setting different routes, speed of movement, etc.
Install the application and, as explained before, select it for the dummy location from Developer options. DO NOT launch Pokémon GO yet! The game has a good anti-hack system designed specifically to make GPS hacking difficult, and this is where Xposed Framework comes in!
The last step to get the GPS tricks on Pokémon GO is therefore to download an Xposed module present on the Play Store, or Hide Mock Locations.
Alternatively, a good application is Lockito, free and with the same functions.
Download it via the badge and after installation start Xposed, then go to modules, click on Hide Mock Locations, check Pokémon GO and save using the appropriate yellow button at the bottom right. Go back and activate the form by clicking on the check mark to the right; finally, restart the device.
Now, to play, you will need to:
- set the phone's GPS from High precision a Only device (this is very important)
- start Mock Locations and choose a place or a route with simple long taps on the desired locations
- press play to start the dummy position
- start Pokémon Go and play from the new position!
Advice for the hack
Don't choose places that are very far from your position and don't change position frequently over long distances, rather simulate a walk in a particular area. Don't use the hack often, if the fake GPS application is not active and the GPS is set to High precision, the game will work normally.
This solution works perfectly with me, did you find it useful or doesn't it work? Let me know!
