it's a plugin you need with Tasker, it enables some settings.

Just an update, I needed busybox because of secure settings to work properly and now RBC detects my rooted phone

hey guys, I got some good news! I was able to get Wallet working on a custom rom while it was already rooted.

What I'm running : Maple Leaf by IB4StiD / Baseband NC1 with old bootloader.

steps in TRusselo's OP... pickup a Bell NFC SIM and fill out the form to submit to RBC

approx 12 hours later I used RootCloak and added the RBC Mobile app to the Rootcloak list, uninstalled the RBC app and re-installed RBC. now I have the option for wallet! in addition I added my cards without issue.

Thanks OP!

I really wish this app wasnt limited to devices. But we are releasing bell wallet app soon, so hopefully just installing that will replace the phone type requirement, as long as its a phone on bell.

Would like to add, as bell/RBC opened this up to 4 new phones.

I have a note 3 and picked up an NFC Sim today. Changed it over and reinstalled the lock, talked to RBC for an hour before he asked me if I was rooted...damn. RBC isn't allowing mobile wallet to be used on rooted devices (we knew this already). Installed root cloak, added RBC mobile app, and the wallet button popped up immediately. No unrooting and rerooting.

I learned from the RBC rep you do NOT need to fill out the form to have the update pushed. This was only in the early stages of mobile wallet development. If your device is set up properly the mobile app will update the wallet function itself
nfc, rbc, sim
