Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has had quite a few fans since its launch, but not without a few bumps along the way. Niantic, the game's developer, has a long history of trying to block all root users on Android. The methods vary for each game, but this time they seem to be playing a new detection feature with Wizards Unite from the recent 2.9.0 update. Let's see what's going on.
It all started a few months after Pokémon GO came out – then Niantic started to get a little more aggressive with root detection methods. Later, the game would silently scan your internal storage while searching for very specific file names or extensions. Everything with Magisk (image files, ZIP files, etc.) Was the main trigger causing the & # 39; Device Incompatible & # 39; would cause.
This was difficult to handle for a while, but the Magisk Hide function came to save the day and allow root users to play as normal. That worked for a while, but it seems it's time for Niantic to change things for Wizards Unite to keep us focused. Instead of just searching for Magisk-related files, the game also seems to specifically search for the modified "TWRP" recovery folder.
The newest & # 39; Device Incompatible & # 39; error resolution
To bypass this new used root detection method in Wizards Unite, you must delete or rename the "TWRP" folder at the root of your internal storage. You can open File manager on your phone or connect to a computer and make the necessary changes in this way. Although it is not ideal, it works, and I have tested this on several of my own rotated devices.
However, this may not be the ultimate solution for every root user there is. However, the TWRP folder detection is something new to watch out for. If you've never used TWRP before and don't have that folder, make sure you use Magisk Hide with Wizards Unite – turn it off and on again if necessary. You may also need to rename or delete everything related to Magisk to be safe.
Because Wizards Unite specifically checks for the "TWRP" folder, I thought it would be nice to see if it could also affect non-rotated phones. rotated devices. Out of curiosity I tried this on a fully standard Galaxy S10 with One UI 2, which has a locked bootloader. By deliberately adding the TWRP folder to my internal storage, I got the "Device Incompatible" error within minutes of playing.
Once I deleted the empty "TWRP" folder that I placed in the root of my internal storage, the problem went away immediately. I was able to play well on the Galaxy S10 for an extensive game session without any problems. I did this TWRP map thing several times and got the same result every time. The problem has been confirmed and can be activated in the same way.
