Depending on the firmware version, you have multiple options.
If you are on MDK, you will need to re-flash with a no wipe of MDK.
If you are on ME7, MI1, MJ7 or MK2 you will need to re-flash with a no wipe of MK2.
MK2 is the latest firmware and there is a root exploit. It also is the most stable.
You can get Wifi tethering and Google wallet to work with no issues.

Check these threads.
