    Angry Galaxy S3 Rooted??

    I was trying to run a program on my Galaxy SIII today that when I went to watch a movie on it (which is a legal program that has a movie I paid for) the program stated my phone has been rooted and that it can't play the video on a rooted phone. Not sure why I got this message as my phone is from MetroPCS, I bought it from them, use it for their service, and have done nothing to root my phone. About a week ago, did update it to Jellybean which it automatically received and asked me to update when I checked it in the morning. Does Metro do something to the phone to root it? I would like to use this program (Flixster) to be able to watch my digital copy movies, but unfortunately as of right now, I get the message telling me that my phone appears to be rooted and it will not play my movies. Is there anything that can be done?

    that sounds weird i would contact flixster and tell them whats going on also if they are a legit company that charges users to stream movies then whether ur rooted or not isn't their business you paid for your service you should be able to stream movies without any hassles.

    That is weird I just installed this app and it did give me the message but I am rooted. If that app is important to you you can do a factory reset and see if that helps I guess. But you might lose stuff if you do that.

    Somehow after rebooting the phone, it seems to work...However if I do get the message again, I will be contacting them...They probably prevent it because with a rooted phone you may be able to do something with the movies that shouldn't be done maybe

    rooted has nothing to do with it
    uninstall the app, reboot your phone, re-install and try again
    if anything update your SU app or uninstall it and use a different SU app
    and be sure your busybox is up to date

    Yeah nasty, that is the app, however it's fine till you go to watch your movies, the app will run without giving that message till then.
