Pokémon Go shuts out Android phones with suspicious file names

Ars Technica - 1 hour 12 min ago

A new update to Niantic's Pokémon Go takes a more zealous approach to ferreting out potential cheaters by scanning Android phones for certain jailbreak-related folder names, regardless of the user's permissions. Ars has independently confirmed reports that Pokémon Go will not launch on Android phones that have an empty folder named "MagiskManager" on their SD card.

The error message shown when trying to play Pokemon Go on an Android device with an empty "MagiskManager" folder.

That folder name is associated with a popular piece of rooting software, which gives users low-level access to the phone and finer control over the way it functions. But the Pokémon Go check currently blocks access even on unrooted phones where the MagiskManager software hasn't even been downloaded. The folder name alone is enough to generate an "unauthorized_device_lockout" error from the game, and that error goes away if the folder is deleted.

Surprisingly, Ars testing shows the lockout error happens even when the user hasn't granted "storage permissions" to Pokémon Go, which would usually be necessary for the app to scan through outside files. A user on the Pokémon Go-focused Silph Road subreddit points to an XDA forums post that suggests Niantic may be using a loophole in Android's error reporting to get around that lack of permissions.

Chrome 69 will take the next step to killing Flash, roll out new design

Ars Technica - 1 hour 47 min ago


Chrome 69, due to be released on September 4, is going to take the next step toward phasing out support for Adobe's Flash plugin.

Chrome started deprecating Flash in 2016, defaulting to HTML5 features and requiring Flash to be enabled on a per-site basis. Currently, that setting is sticky: if Flash is enabled for a site, it will continue to be enabled across sessions and restarts of the browser.

That changes in Chrome 69—Flash will have to be enabled for a site every time the browser is started. This means that Flash content will always need positive, explicit user permission to run, making the use of the plugin much more visible—and much more annoying.

This military tech could finally help self-driving cars master snow

Ars Technica - 2 hours 31 min ago


The research conducted at the country's National Laboratories is usually highly classified and specifically aimed at solving national security problems. But sometimes you get a swords-into-ploughshares moment. That's the case here, as a startup called WaveSense looks to apply technology originally developed by MIT Lincoln Laboratory to detect buried mines and improvised explosive devices for use in self-driving cars.

If you want a car to drive itself, it has to know where it is in the world to a pretty high degree of accuracy. Until now, just about every variation of autonomous vehicle we've come across has done that through a combination of highly accurate GPS, an HD map, and some kind of sensor to detect the environment around it. Actually, you want more than one kind of sensor, because redundancy is going to be critical if humans are going to trust their lives to robot vehicles.
