      Geezer,
      Yep that's the info and the reason you're showing up as rooted is due to the fact that it's an Allwinner based on ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l) SOC which is a Chinese product.
      The ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l) are used by Samsung in a lot of their older devices and the odd new 1.
      Sadly the only way around for you is to do what has been said above unless Sky decides to change their permissions set up :--
      ro.product.model
      ro.product.brand
      ro.product.name
      ro.product.device
      ro.product.board
      ro.product.manufacturer
      ro.build.description
      ro.build.fingerprint

      Above is the front end of the permissions set up coding for Sky Go (old SG not SGT) and in bold is the code that's telling the app your device is rooted. I've not had a chance to decompile the new SGT app to see the difference but your line will still be there but others have been removed as there is no white list now.

      This app will not work on the Kindle Fire.

      It is specifically "Black Listed".

      Re: Sky Go for Android Tablets

      unable to get sky go working on my 10.1 galaxy tab or my galaxy note 3 neither of these are rooted or modified in anyway.
      crappy app from a crappy company. why is it you can only register 1 device per month? shame joanne lumley does not disclose that crappy sky rule.
