[APP-MOD] Google Wallet Tap and Pay via ADB - root
First off I'd like to say thanks to Prl91
and this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2024460
for alot of help. Thanks.
The thread listed above is an easier method and I would try it first, if you are one of the people it doesn't work for I would then
move on to my method.
You must be rooted, have root explorer(or another way to edit build.prop), and understand how to use ADB. You will need to mount system
writeable if you know how to do this go ahead and mount system r/w and continue to step 3
On your phone, go into Google Play Store and download and install "Mount /system" it looks like a yellow folder with a lock.
Open Mount /system and select the Mount r/w. If it's your first time opening you will have to grant root privileges
On your computer download wallet.apk using the link to the right and put it inside your adb folder. https://db.tt/Ql2OLd4a
Open Root Explorer and navigate to /system and make a copy of build.prop and save it somewhere on your sdcard that
you'll remember and then long press build.prop and go down to Open in Text Editior.
Find the following lines
And change it to
Use adb to put wallet on phone. On your computer using terminal or command(how ever you use ADB) depending on
what O/S your using you may have to change how you initiate the ADB commands. Watch your phone as it may ask
you to grant root privileges while you perform this step.
Type the following:
adb push wallet.apk /sdcard/wallet.apk
cp /sdcard/wallet.apk /system/app/wallet.apk
After doing all that your phone should reboot
One your phone is fully booted up you should see Google Wallet in your list of apps. Open it and let it set up completely before
Moving on to step 7. The full set up will include
When you first open it it will say "setting up wallet this may take up to 5 minutes"
Then it will ask you a few easy questions about your account
Then it will say setting up wallet again
Then it will ask you to set up new pin.
Then it will say settting up wallet for purchases.
Then it will be set up completely(You will notice it doesn't have Tap and Pay functionality yet)
Reboot phone(dont know if you need to do this but I did anyway)
Open Google Play Store and search for Google Wallet, once found you will see it needs an update, go ahead and update it.
Once updated open it and you should see Tap and Pay.
