Default [Q] Google Wallet Tap and Pay CM11

I installed CM11 on my N7100. Most of the things I'm finding online indicate since Android 4.4 uses host card emulation (HCE) instead of the secure element, any 4.4 ROM on any device should have Google Wallet's Tap and Pay feature enabled, but this doesn't seem to be the case. I haven't actually tried paying with my phone yet, but when I go into Google Wallet, there's no Tap and Pay Settings, so I'm pretty sure it's not working. Does anyone know why it's not working and what I can do about it?

Its working fine for me on ATT GS4. I just flashed the January 31 nightly and went and downloaded wallet from play store and it set it up on its own. No troubles at all for me yet with this ROM besides that the s-view cover does not work, but that's to be expected.

You have to enable Tap & Pay within Google Wallet and make sure NFC is on. The Tap & Pay option in the settings menu only showed up on my phone after I did that.

I can't enable Tap & Pay within Google Wallet because it says "Not Available."

NFC is on. There's still no Tap & Pay option in the settings menu.

What device do you have?
Note 2 International (N7100)

and

Nexus 4

I have the same problem. I have a Verizon GS3 and it worked on CM10 up until they disabled devices running anything lower than 4.4. So I moved up to CM11 and my NFC is on. There isn't a "Tap & Pay Settings" option in the Wallet app anymore. And under the "Tap & Pay section in the main phone settings, Google Wallet is selected.


I found this over on the CM Forum.

Quote:
For those of you who do not know what HCE is, it is what makes tap and pay work for apps such as Google Wallet when device is running Kitkat. Kitkat does not use secure element. Android 4.3 used secure element and that is why Google Wallet worked when running on Android Jellybean 4.3. I am quoting information below from another article i read.


"Tap and pay functionality is available in the US, and requires one of the following NFC-enabled Android devices with a Secure Element chip running 2.3 (Gingerbread) or higher on select carrier networks, or an NFC-enabled Android device running 4.4 (KitKat) or higher:
I read that as an either/or statement.. the second doesn't seem conditional to the first
EDIT: What they didn't tell us, according to Entropy512:
HCE support is missing from the AOSP stack for NXP NFC controllers. It only works on Broadcom (NCI) controllers. (Unless it was pushed as part of the android-4.4-r1.2 tag...)
So if you have a device with an NXP NFC controller - still no Wallet for you. If your device has the HCE permissions XML (this will only happen if someone made a mistake), Google Wallet will indicate that it's 100% ready for payment, but won't react at all to a payment terminal.
(Another option is if an OEM implements HCE for NXP chips even though it is missing from AOSP.)"
