In the past if you rooted your phone you broke the secure element. If you were a Google Wallet user the app might have worked but you received a warning message. My understanding is that Kitkat changed the way the Google Wallet element worked/is located. Does rooting and loading Kitkat rom eliminate the error? If the Sprint update is not out by April 14, NFC Google payments won't work so I am considering changing roms now.

I'm a big Google Wallet user and I've heard of the upcoming update also. It works on most current 4.3 and older Roms and on stock. Im currently running Wicked Sensations 4.3. Not sure whats going to happen with us and the OTA. I've tried almost all the 4.4 Roms that are out and the only one that I found that Wallet works on is this build of CM11 (link below). All builds after this, the Wallet doesn't work.
