Only Way To Play Fortnite On Any Android Phone - 2019

Only Way To Play Fortnite On Any Android Phone 2019 :- 

Fortnite is an immensely popular game for both mobile and PC – yet sadly, it will not work on rooted Android devices (which is most likely a majority of readers here). We’re not entirely sure why Fortnite will not run on rooted devices – perhaps as a way to combat cheaters and hackers. Epic Games never released an official statement as to exactly why rooted Android users are blocked from playing Fortnite, so we’re left to speculate.

Fortunately, there are some methods to get Fortnite running on a rooted Android – mostly these involve a few tweaks, and hiding your rooted status from the app. The first method we’ll share should work for a majority of devices, using Magisk, but just in case, we’ll also share an alternative method that has been reported to work for users of Xiaomi and Huawei devices.


* Magisk

* GLTools

* Root explorer (MiXPlorer, FX Explorer, etc., for editing build.prop)

* Official Fortnite APK

> First uninstall Fortnite if you already have it on your device.

> Launch Magisk and go into Settings, find and enable “Magisk Core Only Mode”.

> Now launch a root file explorer and navigate to your build.prop, which is typically found in the /system partition of your Android device.

Open build.prop using a text editor, and edit the following lines to match exactly below:


Now hide root for all apps that need root – every root app on your device, hide it using Magisk Hide found in Settings. Also hide root for SystemUI.

Now download and install Fortnite official APK. Do not launch it.

Re-open Magisk and also hide Fortnite from root in Magisk Hide.

Disable Developer Options – just go into Settings > Developer Options > toggle switch to “Off”.

Now reboot your device, and launch Fortnite. If everything was done correctly, you should be able to play without being blocked for having root!

Alternative Method for rooted P20 Lite or Kirin 659 Devices
Many P20 Lite / Nova 3e and Kirin 659 SoC device owners report that Fortnite crashes during the “Optimizing Content” sequence, especially on rooted devices. There is a workaround that is reported as working for owners of these devices.

This method is similar to the method shared above, but with a few twists.

First you need to edit your build.prop file to contain the following lines exactly as shown below:

Now download the official Fortnite installer, but do not launch the game yet. Just install it.

Download GLTools and at the top of the app, you should see “Default (System-Wide)” option, so tap it.

PRO TIP: If the issue is with your computer or a laptop/notebook you should try using Reimage Plus which can scan the repositories and replace corrupt and missing files. This works in most cases, where the issue is originated due to a system corruption. You can download Reimage by Clicking Here

Then scroll down until you see “Use Fake GPU Info” and “Use Fake CPU/RAM Info”, activate both of those options.

Next tap on “Use a Template”, then scroll down and choose “CPU:8CPUs”.

Tap it again and choose “Mali-G72”.

Now press “Fake GL_Renderer” and change it to “Mali-G72 MP12” – this should eliminate the “Optimizing Content” sequence when launching Fortnite.

At this point, you may notice a lot of lag when running Fortnite – so we will optimize the game based on the tweaks we’ve made.

Launch GLTools again, and tap Fortnite to configure it.

Next tap “Enable custom settings for this app”.

Change “Custom resolution scale factor” to around 15%.

Change “Resolution change method” to Manual, then tick all of the available options inside (yes, all of them).

Next launch Fortnite and play around – the game may appear fairly ugly at this point, and hyper-pixellated. But it will run incredibly smooth. At this point you can go back into GLTools and experiment further with the “Custom resolution scale factor” setting, to make the game uglier but smoother, or prettier but more lag.

Fortnite at 15% resolution using GLTools – yes, it really looks this bad. But no lag!
GLTools is not only for Fortnite, however – it works across a huge range of Android games, such as Five Nights at Freddy’s or Drift Hunters.

In any case, we’ll try to update this article if Epic Games reverses their stance, or reveals an exact reason why rooted users cannot play Fortnite on mobile.

Risk's Of Rooting :- 

Rooting your phone or tablet gives you complete control over the system, and that power can be misused if you’re not careful. Android is designed in such a way that it’s hard to break things with a limited user profile. A superuser, however, can really trash things by installing the wrong app or making changes to system files. The security model of Android is also compromised to a certain degree as root apps have much more access to your system. Malware on a rooted phone can access a lot of data. Again, you need to be careful what you install.

For this reason, Google does not officially support rooted devices. There’s even an API called SafetyNet that apps can call on to make sure a device has not been tampered with or compromised by hackers. A number of apps that handle sensitive data will do this check and refuse to run on rooted devices. One of the most prominent examples of this is Android Pay — it cannot even be opened on devices that fail the SafetyNet check. If losing access to high-security apps is a big deal, you might not want to mess around with rooting.

Root methods are sometimes messy and dangerous in their own right. You might brick your device simply trying to root it, and you’ve probably (technically) voided your warranty doing so. Depending on the company, you might still be able to get a device repaired if you damage it attempting a root, but that’s not a guarantee.
Starting in Android 5.0 Lollipop, system updates for some phones (like Nexus and Pixel devices) will only work on stock unrooted devices. This is because of a change to the way Android processes the OTA file. Updates now patch the entire system directory as a single blob, so any changes or extra files (i.e. root) will throw off the verification and the update will abort.

On other phones and tablets, virtually every OTA update you get will wipe out root and block the method from working again. If having root access is really important to you, you might be left waiting on older buggy software while you beg for a new root method or a modded OS update.
