You can reset the app by logging into googke wallet through your computer and click devices then disable. It does not fix secure element not responding error

Im on the regular ljc rooted stock rom if that matters.

From what I've read, go into Wallet on the phone FIRST, "Reset Google Wallet App" in Wallet settings on phone, then uninstall Wallet. I realize this doesn't really help those with the SE error or FC's, but for those who still can access the app and want to uninstall, do a quick search on "uninstall Google Wallet", and make sure you read up on this.

I had the same problem on my first Note II, and your question/issue seems to be the "$200 Asurion Question", at least that's how it turned out for me. I was never able to find anything on fixing the "Unfortunately Google Wallet has stopped responding" error and FC. That's the point I tried (what turned out to be) a fatal reset on my phone, which in turn gave me the fatal "Secure Element" error. All that was after trying any/all of my nandroid backups too.

Hopefully some of this helps somebody else avoid my issues and also avoid the $200 replacement fee (assuming you also have the Protection Plan).

I've factory reset snd flashed new roms and nandroids several times without uninstalling or resetting wallet. Most of the time wallet will make me set up again the first time I run it after a new flash but I've never done it manually before flashing or resetting. It still works fine.

Whatever is killing the secure elements, it's not that simple and we don't know what it is yet.

It may not *hurt* to clear wallet before any major changes, but it's probably a false sense of security to simply say you have to do that to avoid problems. In fact, it may hurt. The clearing operation may be a slightly risky one vs simply leaving it alone. We just don't know yet.

Seems like the obvious answer is stop building this easily destroyable part into $700 devices permanently. If it can be so easily destroyed, then duh it should be removable and replaceable, either by itself or as part of something else like battery or battery cover.

If that makes the battery too special and too expensive to manufacture, then maybe the battery cover.

Or maybe just make the chip have a special erase-only mode that doesn't require encryption. Gee that sounds like a no-brainer I would have said on day one. Too bad I wasn't consulted

I'm not getting the secure element error. I just want to uninstall it from my stock rooted phone. I thought if I flashed my backup (the one I have before installing GW), I would be done and ok. Is it safe to do that since I still have the r87 one installed and it no longer works anyway?

Thanks for the reply but since my version of Google wallet is outdated, the app wont let me do anything other than update it. I just want to get it off of my phone without getting this error that others have been receiving. Can I really log onto my computer and disable it that way then do a restore of my backup? I'm not trying to do a factory reset. I just want to go back to my previous backup that I had before installing GW.

I couldn't agree more on both accounts and that is why I tried my spare cover in hopes they learned their lesson from the Galaxy Nexus SE Bricks and put the SE, NFC, and antenna in the cover. I think it's obvious Google can clear it, but it may take years before they put out a fix if ever. You would think Samsung would say "Hey stop making us replace boards and remotely clear the SE for these people". I'm debating whether to contact Samsung for RMA. I have a feeling they'll just say it's not supported in the Note 2.

For the record i made several purchases using GW. I am on the same rom. Haven't flashed anything since I started using GW. Now I get that error. Changing battery temporarily is all I did. I think it was a fluke incident of hardware breakage of the chip. I very much agree clearing or not before flashing makes no difference. If it's going to break it will break when it's ready to break. GW team says it's a rare occurance.

People claim it's safer if you go into the GW app and use the reset option from within the app before you flash a ROM. I didn't flash a ROM and mine broke so i'm not believing it prevents anything Pleny of users factory reset and flash without touching GW and it works just fine.

So I just flashed new version of ROM and did a wipe of cache and dalvik. When I booted back up, a working copy of wallet (the newer app) was uninstalled. I restored from TB and set it back up. It went all the way through and everything looked like it was working, but then... it kept crashing in the background and when I went to open it it asked for my pin, which I would enter, then ask again, and would not let me enter the app no matter how many times I entered the pin. I uninstalled and reinstalled but had same issue again (could settup, but then the pin issue).

Am I SOL?

By no means am I an expert, and as a matter of fact, several people have refuted my statements. No problem with that at all. I'm just trying to pass along some info I've found helpful to me in my situation, such as this about restoring from (or better yet, NOT to restore from) TiB and Wallet...

Yes, different device, "nevertheless"...

Thanks. Wish I knew that before....

I can't believe I destroyed GW for myself...so mad right now.

FWIW: So I just disabled the app from the website, wiped data via TB and uninstalled via TB, installed a fresh copy (pushed apk to system/app), reboot, setup...and it seems to be working fine!
