-Placed the mod google wallet in both places, data/app & system/app
-Fixed permissions

Rebooted and it gives me an error when adding the prepaid card.

That is rather odd, what dies the error say?

"Error adding card" ... "Try again later"

I tried it over and over all day and it won't work.

Wow, I am sorry to hear that. I can give you two options, one is that you can modify your "build.prop" from app like "ROM Toolbox Lite" (Play Store) and using this guide, two, you can try this guide. Good luck to you sir.

I changed my details to an old address from a time I was living in the US and used an old US phone number.

Then when I registered the prepaid Vanilla Mastercard I registered as "US - English" and used the zip code as saved on the Google Wallet account settings. Finally when I loaded the funds onto Wallet I entered the same address and zip code as what I had saved in my account details under the Google Wallet.

It seems for me at least that the account settings online have to match what you enter into the phone when loading a prepaid card, otherwise the card would work even if it's registered to a US zip code.

ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE: First the prepaid card costs $4.99 + HST. So a $50 prepaid card costs $55.64 (which is a little irritating). Also my $50 I had on the card wouldn't transfer in full because Google charges a $0.99 transaction fee. Additionally you need to factor in the exchange rate, right now it actually costs less because the Canadian dollar is higher than the American dollar.

(As an aside, the nice thing is that unlike the banks where you don't get the real exchange rate it seems like the transfer of funds with the prepaid vanilla is the real exchange rate but delayed a day. So even though I transferred funds on the weekend they used the Thursday closing exchange rate of 0.9923 rather than the Friday closing rate.)

regarding the bolded section: did you add funds from the prepaid card to the google credit card or add the prepaid card itself as a credit card?

If you have a phone with broken IMEI code, you won't be able to use Google wallet on that phone. I'm not 100% sure, but i've tried everything, and i wasn't able to add any of my cards, not even a google prepaid one. I'm not sure if that's the only problem....but i guess it is...

All I can say is, you guys are amazing!

I've tried a few different APKs and it would all work until adding my debit card. This would always cause a FC, even though it was already added via the Google Wallet website.

Essentially, I used adb to push the file to both locations and used adb shell to chmod (to 0644) and chown (to system:system). It immediately appeared in my app drawer (no defrosting required), and my debit card immediately appeared on my card selection screen. I did have to complete a one-time setup which basically was giving my address, but the card already appeared with no intervention.

Here's my setup (current signature but my setup may change):
Phone: Samsung Nexus S, GT-I9020A
ROM: BAKED Crespo BlackBean-3 (ebs512)
Kernel: Matrix v22.5, deadline/ondemand, 200/1000 (mathkid95)

UPDATE: I can confirm that my debit card used via Google Wallet works. I went to McDonald's on my way home from work and it worked perfectly. The charge showed on my bank account this morning as expected ("Google *McDonalds...").

the google prepaid option will be gone after the 17th; you wont be able to re-add the card after sept 17 and it will be gone completely after oct 17. so make sure to use whatever funds you have on it before the 17th of sept to be safe.

also, i'm thinking that perhaps your broken imei may also be linked to a broken secure element which wallet relies on. i could be wrong, but it's just a thought.

Works with all carriers. Just be sure to get the right files. Follow the steps exactly. Piece of cake.
