For people in the UK asking how they can top up the card, you could try using this service - http://www.usunlocked.com/how_it_wor...USUnlockedCard

I remember seeing it on Paul O Brien's forum post on how to access the US-only Amazon App Store. You can top it up with your UK card I think, and it gives you a Discover card number to use (which is American), so you could top up the prepaid Google card.

I haven't actually used it though so not sure how good it is. I reckon it would work though!

If I login to Google Wallet online, it shows me all my Google Checkout purchases and the card assigned to my account. Take it you still need to add it in Wallet?

You need to either flash this after doing a wipe or by modifying.

The only was I can see you managing to do this is if you unlock the bootloader (which will wipe your phone anyway), then boot into CWM (not flash) and then install the zip.

Then when you reboot your phone, CWM will be gone and you should get a stock ROM with Wallet installed.

No idea if that would work though

This is my first nexus. How does Google handle updates to oem unlocked devices? If I do all this I'm assuming I won't get updates pushed to me since I'm going to flash CWM recovery?

If you're on the stock rom but you've rooted it, you will still see the updates. If you apply the updates then you will no doubt loose root.

If you flash a custom rom, the developer usually disables the update function and releases the update in a new version of their rom

Any insight on working on an existing ROM, wiped cache and placed the modifed XML file and getting FC's from Wallet (even before wallet is opened)

EDIT: Reinstalling the first post .zip from CW Recovery AFTER placing the edited packages.xml file made Wallet work on reboot!

I'd highly advise to taking a CWM backup first and then try it if you wish

As evostance suggested do a CW recovery backup

Make sure you edit the packages.xml file and wipe Cache

You MAY have to reflash the zip file for Google Wallet again after editing the packages.xmls if you get Force closes on wallet. (See first post in thread)
