    Hmm, this is weird......Just got this mail from Google! Any of you guys get the same mail??


    Hi *********,

    Currently, the only official phone for Google Wallet is the Nexus S 4G on
    Sprint.

    Unauthorized operating systems or rooted devices may have limited or
    compromised functionality, even if they're no longer rooted. These device
    configurations are not supported by Google Wallet as they may expose
    security risks. We strongly discourage use of the Google Wallet app on
    such devices. Have an nice day!

    Sincerely,

    Mike
    The Google Wallet Team

    Now when I go to add a prepaid card, I get this instead. It starts adding it and says please wait, then gives an error.

    uuugggghhhh i pray to god they did not begin to actually limit usage based on devices. the same exact apk and it hasn't been updated so I am not quite sure how they could do it now but i wouldn't put it past the almighty skynet

    I just added 20 to mine. I installed Google wallet via the market back door method and not the hacked stand alone or rom way.
    maybe that's why it works for me who knows. I do know it's working and not blocked for me.

    the problem is that once the prepaid card is removed, or you reset wallet, you cannot re-add it. for those like yourself with it still intact then its fine. for anyone taking the precaution to preserve wallet and try a new rom then you are in the predicament that some of us are in unable to re-add the card

    I backed up Wallet and its data through TiBu when I flashed another rom. Wallet is included with the rom so it is system data. Does anyone know if restoring the app data would bypass this issue since it was fine before? Not sure if I wanna do it since system data can cause unknown problems.

    They're not disabling it for existing wallet users, just not letting new subscribers on till the fix happens...I don't see how this is any more hackable than any other online source for credit cards....
