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

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

What does not/has not worked:

Google Edition Roms (tests in no specific order)
- rooted rom / manually un-rooted via SuperSu app No-go
- root hidden by Hide My Root app, and RootCloak xposed module. No-go
- ran logcat, found RBC app looking for " org.simalliance.openmobileapi.jar ", copied 2 files (attached below) from stock rom to this rom. No-go

Stock 4.3 BELL Touchwiz (Specific trial instructions)
From Stock un-rooted 4.3 MK6, odin flashed official tar from
1. Odin flashed Chainfire's CF Auto-Root
2. Odin flashed TWRP recovery
3. used TWRP to install Phil'z touch recovery
4. boot into rom, install RBC

What did work:
Stock 4.3 BELL Touchwiz (Specific trial instructions -minus many backup steps)
From Stock un-rooted 4.3 MK6, odin flashed official tar from
1. Boot phone, setup. installed apps, RBC app
2. NFC OPTIONS!!!! Setup RBC cards in-app
3. Odin flashed TWRP recovery, then used TWRP to install Phil'z touch recovery. (NFC still exists!!!)
4. Boot into Phil'z recovery > reboot phone > "Message: your phone is not rooted! Do you want to root the phone?" Answer: "YES". (NFC still exists!!!)
5. Installed ktoonsez tmo TW 4.3 kernel through recovery. reboot. edited build.prop line '' from "true" to "false" (to fix wifi with this kernel on pure stock roms) (NFC still exists!!!)
6. Installed Xposed Framework. (NFC still exists!!!)
7. Installed Nottach Xposed module (enable settings couple at a time, a couple settings dont work with 4.3 TW and stop all settings from applying, if you turn on 60 settings, none will work because of 1 bad setting). And installed XuiMod xposed module
8. Enjoy RBC NFC on rooted modified rom!

I have also used titanium backup to remove some samsung and bell bloat. BE CAREFUL. MAKE BACKUPS. removing some bloat could break rom or RBC NFC functionality!!!

After step 4 I lose the wallet in RBC app
