Android x86 advice - is it worth trying to get Sky Go to run on it?

Hi everyone.

I am currently trying to get the Sky Go windows app to run on Acer Revo Aspire R3610 - given its age, however, it keeps stuttering when playing anything (CPU is constantly at 100%).

It then dawned on my to give Android x86 a go - they system itself is really snappy but now I have run into another problem. The Android Sky Go app will not work as it thinks that the device is rooted.

Is there any way I can fool the app into thinking that the install is not rooted or is the installation (given that it is a hack in the first place is, by its very nature) always going to be rooted?
