EDIT: GO HERE FOR WORKING GOOGLE WALLET. DO NOT DOWNLOAD CWM.ZIP INFORMATION BELOW IS FOR INFORMATIVE PURPOSES ONLY
If you've been trying to run Google Wallet on your USA variant Note II you've probably ran into some problems. like this one..
"Insufficient secure element privileges for this system image (release-keys)."
why is this happening? check HERE for more detail.
But for the sake of keeping everything together in this thread..
Ok, first a little background
basically what you are seeing if you try to install google wallet on at&t, tmo, etc, is you get stuck on "activating device"
If you dig a little further and ran a logcat, you will see that there it no "SMX detected"
What this means, when compiling the rom you need to enable SmartMX in the config headers located in the external/libnfc-nxp library. (thats why it works on CM9, they do this)
this is impossible for us because there is no source for samsung's TouchWiz. We got a break on the international sgs3 as the latest update has the secure element enabled...so does the sprint sgs3
you can find information on people having the same problem we're now stuck at HERE
all you need is a rooted Galaxy Note II to flash the zip. must be running Touchwiz. should work on all US and International variants (providing it has an Exynos4412 in it)
Should go without saying, but this is my first CWM zip. it's been working fine for me the multiple times I've tested it. but you're on your own if you have problems. And i'm not responsible for damage.
NOTE: in my experience it doesn't matter where you get the Google Wallet APK from. I modified my build.prop to match the Galaxy Nexus and got it from the market. also tried the modified Modaco one from HERE with no change.
