Sometimes it dies for no reason at all overnight by itself when you made no change at all.

And usually it doesn't die even when you do flash and/or factory reset without clearing first.

Nice sounding theory but doesn't fit the facts.

Your post provides absolutely zero "facts." How about you do a google search for "Secure element has stopped responding" instead of calling people names. What are you, 14? This isn't XBOX LIve.

Google Wallet FAQ that explains what is stored on the secure element: http://www.google.com/wallet/faq.html

I've never had a single issue on either my gs3 or my gn2 flashing or upgrading firmware and being able to use google wallet. Even with the gn2 and Wallet not being "officially" supported. I have a hard time believing any of this is true...it certainly hasn't been in my case. I'll toss my Nexus 7 in there as well. Flashed plenty roms and upgraded firmware...no issues whatsoever.


See this XDA thread discussing the issue: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1721222

Also Google "secure element has stopped responding."

Since you, admirably, avail yourself of search, I must assume you've seen the same secure element reports I have, and so you have the data. I can't help you with your less admirable inability to deduce from it.

For instance that google doc doesn't say anything about what might brick an element or how to avoid it other than the meaninglessly unspecific "tampering".

I completely agree. Causality has not been determined, and recommending a "fix" without knowing the cause is irresponsible. I've flashed my phone dozens of times, moving from one system to another. I've never performed the steps described in the OP, and my secure element (and GW) continue to run flawlessly.

The potential for the secure element problem exists. That is a fact. But, as far as I know, there's no definitive explanation for the cause, and nobody has demonstrated a cause by replicating the problem.

I updated my OP with more descriptive links. Not my problem if you eventually brick your phone, I'm not going to try to convince you, since you clearly are here to argue, not to discuss.

What's to discuss? You're wrong that's all.
