    I was excited to see pre paid is back but upset to realize that my rooted AOKP ROM will not allow google wallet to work. I understand it is not AOKP's fault but the fact that it is rooted. Has anyone found a work around for this problem?

    Works on ICSourcery, not sure what is different from AOKP but i just activated mine yesterday and got the extra $5 for the inconvenience :p

    The apk is located in our extra apps section inside the rom, it is not flashed with gapps..

    Have you been able to use wallet at a store with ICSOURCERY?

    Great, I will try ICSOURCERY first, but hopefully it can work on others too.

    Google Wallet also works fine on Axiom Crossbreed M2. If you are rooted you will get the unsupported device banner across the top of the app but it works fine.

    I had that same banner after updating the app via the work around, using AOKP B28. I reset Google Wallet within the app and now the banner is gone.

    Got the banner to go away but nfc didn't work at the store. Starting to think it is my battery. It didn't give me an error message, it just didn't recognize that there was an nfc connection.

    Okay one last thought, could my case prohibit the function of nfc?

    Tried it without the case and still not working. So it must be the ROM. I will just have to flash to another rom to use it i guess.

    Have you tried opening GWallet > settings > reset google wallet? Any time if had an issue, I've done so and re-setup, and have had no issues.

    Hey All,

    I have been using GW on my rooted G-Nex constantly (with the exception of the outage everyone had due to security concerns) without problem. I am currently using it on AOKP but have used it with Gummy, and well, just about all of the top ROMS without problem. So I wouldn't think AOKP is the problem. I have a CHEAP (4.00 flea market) case on mine that despite the price fits VERY nicely and it has not caused any problems with NFC passing traffic. Usually I can just get my phone within inches of the terminal when I feel the "pulse" (vibration) telling me it has been sent.

    I have left the banner at the top of mine (didn't know how to remove it honestly ;) as a constant reminder that this AWESOME service works regardless of Verizons ideals.
