I have the NFC-SIM in Nexus 5,but it can do nothing about this with nfc.So should i change the config file like this? And it can help me to use the NFC payment on the subway?
Thank you very much.
Very, very interested on this guys.
So, if I follow mike1369... the steps needed to activate SWP on the Nexus 5 are:
1. Open /system/etc/libnfc-brcm.conf, and set those two lines to 0 and 0xF3? It's not clear to me from the first post.
2. Open /system/etc/libnfc-brcm-20791b05.conf and change the two lines about "# Support UICC" to the values that mike has written in bold... am I right?
I have an NFC SIM card but so far I haven't been able to use it. If this is correct I'll try it and see the results, then post back here.

Ok, so I opened both files and I figured out what I had to change, they were pretty self explanatory. I just commented out (#) the lines that were meant for host card emulation and uncommented the ones for UICC, then rebooted the phone.
Unfortunately, I'm still unable to use my NFC SIM card. I'm trying to use it to access my workplace, but it just doesn't work. However, my colleagues can make it work with a Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini.
I assume UICC is what we need to have communication between the SIM card slot and the NFC chip, right?
