Ingress Cheating: How to Cheat in Ingress With Location Spoofing / Mock Locations Guide

Ingress is a game designed by Google (Niantic Labs) as a way to get users to help create their Field Trip app for the Android OS. A lot of people think location spoofing had been fixed; however, it is not. This is all still possible with a rooted phone, and I'm here to show you how it's done.

As always, conduct your own due diligence before rooting your phone and messing around with the file system following rooting. Ingress is a game still in beta, and part of beta is clearing up all of the bugs and exploits prior to an application going live. I am producing this video as an attempt to help improve the game for when that time comes, and take the power away from the elite few currently using this exploit in the beta phase.

Note that most (or perhaps all of this) no longer works. I'm leaving this here for people looking to get an education into the innards of how Android operates. If you check the rest of my videos on this channel you'll see that it's what this channel is devoted to doing.

Gps Spoofing is for when you are to damn lazy to get off your ass to
walk to a portal. It is not hard to tell if someone is spoofing. Anyone
playing the game learns the time frame it takes to get from point A
to point B. If you manage to get from point A to point B in well
under the time needed people notice. I reported 4 "agents" over
Thanksgiving weekend many of our other local agents did the same because
it was obvious.

If there are not portals in your area. Get out and submit stuff. I live in
BFE Kansas and while there were not many portals before there are tons

Lol all you faggots should just play a sport. Instead of crying about one

You should hang your head in shame theres loads off peaple that go out and
spend hours playing this game hopefully ingress find a way to stop all this
Spoofing it's shocking how easy it is to do it you'd think it would be easy
to find a solution to stop it

Author Voivrenetwork (5 months)
I heard about it and was curious how it was done, as a person with no cell
service or mobile wifi, my playing is very limited and this would be
helpful, but it defeats the fun of getting my ass out and playing, even if
I'm not able to play as much as I want due to my restrictions. Still,
informative video, thanks.

Do you know how to cut and paste the GPS simulator to :device/system/app/
using another way ? I'm asking because I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Ace
GT-S5839i and all of the apps you used in the video. I know you already
said it doesn't work anymore. So, again, do you know any other way to
simulate the GPS position in Ingress app ?
By the way, thanks for this video ! It's been useful to me to get rid of
some pre-installed apps that useless took storage space on my device.

I just started this game myself not too long ago, and I'm living in a
fairly populated area with plenty of portals.
But there is still the option to submit new portals.
If you live someplace remote, but there's still points worth submitting,
why not do so?
Rather than cheating to pretend you live somewhere with portals, make your
own and get the extra XP for making them. =)

Hey I have an rooted Galaxy S3 I9300 Smartphone. I did your instructions, I
can go even in New York (ingame) but when I try to hack an portal, is
telling me "Location Innacurate". I waited 30 mins too but nothing happens.
Can you please help?

Author Anthony Pruitt (4 months)
This is rediculous. People like you are exactly why games aren't as
enjoyable because they have to add more and more restrictions to keep
people like you from cheating other players who obviously work for this
like myself. Start exercising (which is what this app is all about) and
stop cheating!

Yes, I've heard of such things. If you suspect someone in your area of
cheating you can report them.

Author Dan Larremore (1 year)

Author Francisco Marzoa (1 year)
That has no sense at all. If you can spoof your GPS location the unique
difference is that you don't need to actually move to a place for doing
things there, but you still can do everything you could do if you really
were there, so you are not limited to "just hacking portals all over the
world", you can also capture them, build links, fields, etc.

Author Chris Foster (1 year)
If you don't have portals in your area - make them. Then own them :)

What do you mean by it fails? You shouldn't "fail" at moving any app. If
the apps fails to launch after making it a system app (ie: it crashes),
that is a result of not rebooting your phone following moving it.

Author Acuity (11 months)
It's not about the app as much as it is about the educational experience.
Android is a lot more powerful than any other smartphone OS on the market.
When you root it, you have that much more control over your device. If
people would look beyond the beta version of a game to see the power and
control Android allows them to have, this video would be much better
