THIS METHOD DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE.
The new Pokemon Go update (0.113.0) now detects if your location services are disabled!


Important: This method only work with systemless rooted devices with Magisk. It does not work on rooted devices with SuperSU since there is no way to bypass SafetyNet for SuperSU. There is problem with GPS spoofing that always jumping back to your original location so root + Magisk is the best way.

Please update Magisk to 17.1 in order to bypass stupid SafetyNet

Still work as of december 2018

Not work with Draconius GO

You may follow these steps for other GPS games

You can share but keep in mind not to spread too much. We don't know if Niantic or Google could will patch it
This is why I made it only viewable for registered users


Requirements
- Unlocked bootloader
- Rooted devices with Magisk
- App Systemizer (Terminal Emulator) (Magisk module)
- Busybox for Android NDK (Magisk module)
- GPS JoyStick (Download from Play store)
- Termux (Download from Play store)

Rooting devices with Magisk
Unlock bootloader of your device, flash custom recovery

Download Magisk and flash it: [2018.10.22] Magisk v17.3 - Root & Universal Systemless Interface [Android 5.0+]

I can't help you with rooting device so please go to XDA developers for help Android Forum for Mobile Phones, Tablets, Watches & Android App Development - XDA Forums

Hiding Magisk
Launch Magisk app, and go to settings. In General, click Hide Magisk Manager

Open Google Maps to make sure it doesn't jump back to real location
If it jump back to real location, go back to your GPS JoyStick, click Fix GPS Jump To Real Location and try other fix mode. Reboot your device

If it does not, you can play Pokemon Go and spoofing :D

Good Job :D
I thought Pokemon Go is unmod and unhackable now lol
Because at the release from this Game all ppl use bots, FakeGPS, then Niantic blocked all FakeGPS, Bots, Emulators
Nice work :D

You can use magisk module it's named smali by foomey to make the cts profile and basic integrity checked to play it.
Well I didn't need it since mine passed safetynet. PoGo have extra checks that checks for root and Magisk
