1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I did some searching, and didn't find anything that would help me much so here it goes. I know Verizon blocks Google Wallet, and when I go to the app in the market it says not compatible, etc. Now I used to have a Nexus and I found the apk online and downloaded and it worked great. When I upgraded to the Maxx HD I was really disappointed this method didn't work. I even tried it for myself, and quickly found the phone blocked it from installing completely. I forget the message, but anyone that's tried it knows the result. I recently rooted my maxx hd, and using the Voodoo root keeper upgraded to 4.1.2.

    Just for giggles, I tried to install wallet again to see what would happen and to my surprise...it worked! It installed with no problems and when I clicked "open" the app started launching and quickly threw a popup that said: "Not supported: Unfortunately, Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device / carrier." Obviously it's still blocking the app, but it got further than before.

    I did some google-ing and found a couple threads for the Galaxy SIII that has a workaround that involved modifying the build.prop file. Here is the thread I found:

    Google Wallet Working Through play Store! (W/Root)
    and
    Google wallet fix for SGS3 US variants AT&T, T-MOBILE, US Cellular, VERIZON, etc

    From what I can tell, it involved changing these values in build.prop to this (the second link is the same, but uses different values. "htc_jewel"):

    ro.product.model=SPH-L710
    ro.product.name=d2spr
    ro.product.device=d2spr

    My question is would something like this work on the RAZR MAXX HD? I have enough ability to work through rooting/rom'ing, but changing up my build.prop file was a little more than I felt like experimenting with on my own so I though I'd ask first.

    BTW, here is the thread that had the link to download the apk: [APP] Google Wallet (APK: 1.1-R57v5, Play | Galaxy Nexus > XDA
    I clicked on the link that says "com.google.android.apps.walletnfcrel.apk" from the phone and it downloaded and installed with no problems.

    I can't believe with all the roms and new hacks for this phone that there is still no work around for Google wallet :(

    Found a hack so the market is okay with installing.
    I'm missing shared libraries so the install dies.
