Blockbuster App Blocks Rooted Android Phones - xda-developers
This is the equivalent of someone saying to you..."well if you don't have any money I can't sell you this bag of dirt"
One of the main reasons we root is to get rid of blockbuster! So they are trying to tell us we can't use something we don't want and expect us to be disappointed. Huh??? Is this a riddle?
They didn't get the memo.
can't wait until someone makes an app to tell the Blockbuster app that your phone is indeed not rooted... or to tell the Blockbuster app where to stick it, whichever is easier...
I agree this is hilarious. They are the MAIN reason I root. I would guess that the great majority of rooted users has removed or renamed the blockbuster.apk file.
I definitely remove it. Piss Off Blockbuster!
Did i say it right?
Cause Blockbuster is WAY better than Netflix.....cough...cough....not!
So much better they had to file bankruptcy!
The main reason I rooted was to rid my phone of bloatware.
I like the fact that with GB you can make your own group in the app drawer... mine is rooted and I had already renamed the blockbuster apk, but if not I would have just made my own group in the app drawer and NOT included blockbuster...
Yup, get rid of bloat, ads and pushed content I will NEVER use, like that gawd-awful Madden(ing) game
And I was super excited when they came out with the Madden game.... played it one time and hated it... do people actually like it?
Yeah I thought the Madden game would be cool too......nope.
There is a reason blockbuster is closing all of it's retail stores.
no its horrible, i have it on my 360, and its fun there, on a phone.... no
I dont play sports games but whats your GT Voided?
whats my name on here?
im going to trademark this name. and sue google if they ever use it in anything
i dont play sports games either, i just got done beating both assassins creed 2 and brotherhood, im going to go back and get the first one again, and beat it again.
i been playing black ops but i get quite frustrated at it so who knows what i will play in my spare time waiting for people to post questions about their phones
Cool, i will add you when i get home from work and the gym tonight. GT: ThaiBoy02
NIce! I was never too into the AC series but I have nothing against them. I play a fair amount of Halo though and currently im playing L.A. Noire. I patiently waiting for Battlefield 3 though!
im not a halo guy at all. when i played black ops i despised those annoying halo jumpers, like it actually helps them to jump and shoot......
AC series is pretty intense if you like the old era that happened before you, its a different step from GTA, as i was never a fan of GTA, i dont see myself beating up a hooker after being shot and somehow getting health back.... course ac is no different with eagle vision lol. but b3 may be worth the buy, im getting out of fps games, all the same, i stink... so there ya have it lol
I stopped playing CoD series after the fallout between Activision and Infinity Ward. I dont mind FPS but I actually prefer Third Person Shooters, especially tactical ones. However, one of my favoriite franchises (SOCOM) went down the drain this gen. I watch one of my friends play AC II & Brotherhood and it looks awesome however imma wait for the new one Revalations to drop. Have you played the Mass Effect series?
I could care less about the Blockbuster app. But this...
The app comes equipped with Widevine’s DRM software that has the ability to detect whether or not your device has been left untouched in the system department. Oh and speaking of Widevine, did you know that Google owns them?
...bothers me, A LOT! And it's a bad sign of things to come I fear.
You know MW2 has third person gametypes?
and i would hope most companies are smart enough not to continue with the process, or why would we use their app.
Oh noes, I will have to unroot my phone to watch movies on Blockbuster. What will I do?? Oh wait, I prefer Netflix and stream from them and don't even have a blockbusted acount.
MW2's tps mode felt clunky and didnt feel smooth or natural at all imho
Have y'all tried Home Front? I know it was plagued with bugs on release day. But since then the have improved drastically. One of the few fps games that require teamwork, no solo wolfs. There is also Brink. Albeit different both are promising titles.
