Hi there!

I recently downloaded snapchat and wanted to try it out on sailfish but when I try to login it say's "Oh no your login temporarily failed, so please try again later " I wanted to resolve this issue

If I understand this correctly, Snapchat is doing some checks whether your device is rooted or you used third-party apps etc. and this check fails on SFOS for some reason, leaving you with an error message that tells you absolutely nothing. I don't think there is a known workaround.

Has anyone tried using rootcloak for this?

I don't think rootcloak works with Snapchat, as Xposed Framework presence is being checked by Snapchat as well. We could try installing Snapchat in an Android VM/non-rooted device, log in and move the config (tokens etc.) to Jolla with Titanium Backup.

SafetyNet check fails on my AquaFish, not sure what causes this (maybe Android 5.x with 4.4.4 API level is suspicious? no clue), but there are quite a lot of apps which use that API, including Snapchat. Can someone check that as well to make sure it's not an isolated feature. I did a lot of weird things to my AlienDalvik files.

it's the same as with Pokemon Go, see the last pages of this thread:

I fear SailfishOS will never pass Safetynet

Same issue here. Now I'm using "Casper" (android app) as an alternative client. It's not perfect and some features are missing but you can at least view/download snaps and manage your friends (add, delete, block...) so it can be a good workaround. You can find more information about Casper (and official APK) here:

I have also found another alternative but not tried:

Hope this can help...
