We've all had to deal with it at one point or another: a rogue app hiding out in the background, chomping away on the battery. Or perhaps a bunch of pre-installed junk is taking up all of your device's precious RAM. No matter how you slice it, unwanted background apps are a nuisance. Now, there are a number of ways to do away with these apps, but none of them are what we'd call "great." For example, you could freeze them with Titanium Backup Pro, but then you can't launch them without unfreezing, and that's a pain. Or you could use a task killer(*shudder*), but those aren't good for anyone.
Since movie rentals were first enabled on Android devices, rooted users have been left out in the dark, without the ability to utilize the feature on their device. But, when the man steps in, what do Android users do? Find a way to circumvent the system, of course!
Now, thanks to a clever dev named ften, a modified version of the Videos apk is available for download that bypasses the root and tamper checks, allowing rooted users to enjoy Google Movies like they should've been able to all along.
While this app does allow rooted users to watch movies, all other aspects of movie rental are left unchanged.
