Apparently, and understandably, everyone is pretty much focused on stability for the non p version. NFC implementation is not a top priority as of now. Few months ago someone from the team was trying to do something about it, but I never heard anything new ever since.
I don't think anything simple like an xposed module or a software modification could do the trick. I suppose there has to be something at kernel level.
I have to say, as of now I never even found myself in the situatuon of being able to use NFC, let alone ever try it, so I don't exactly feel like it's that much of a big deal, but I can understand how others might feel differently about it.
KitKat has more focus on NFC than jb did, so maybe, just maybe, once some roms would reach a good level of stability there could be some more interest regarding it.
Also, if I'm not mistaken, KitKat should give the possibility of "emulating" an NFC chip even if the device doesn't have it physically (or something like it...), so maybe we'd be able to use NFC even on 9070 non-p ROMs. Who knows?
Hopefully not too late, we're still talking about a relatively old-ish device...
So, yeah, don't give up hope, but don't expect anything too soon.
