You would be surprised, most people never see the stickies because they are using tapatalk or the xda app. The rest usually just glance over them.

So long as it doesn't get buried this would probably be the best place for it to get exposure.

1. Unroot (available option in SU menu)

3. Find Wallet and force stop, uninstall, and disable.
4. Find NFC in more connections dialog in settings. If unchecked, check it back on.
5. Go back to Wallet in manage apps, enable it then launch it.
6. Wallet will try to update itself from Google Play, once that happens, it should go through setup with you again, and you'll be fine.

I confirmed it worked at the 7-11 down my block.

I flashed the RUU yesterday before anyone had mentioned ANYTHING about this. Your method just got my google wallet back! I got the "welcome to google wallet" email, and it appears to be working again... I'll test it later today at McDonalds.

Wallet
It worked for me. I used the OTA root keeper method to get back root. Great tool!

So it would seem as if I broke Google Wallet as well, having not read anything about this issue prior to rooting with zedomax's thread in Development.

I had setup GW prior to root, got my free $10, added a Citi card, and setup a PIN. Never went out anywhere to test it, but it wall all stock.

After rooting, when asked for root permissions, I subconsciously hit "grant". And noted the error about GW not being supported on the device.

After reading a few posts about the error itself, some said it still works just fine, while others said to get rid of the error, clear all data and DENY root. There didn't seem to be a definitive, universal way to get rid of the error and confirm the software still works.

In my tinkering with clearing cache/data & removing SuperSU's permissions for GW root, I must've caused the problem.

I'm already set to get a replacement from Best Buy as soon as one if available. And odds are I won't touch GW until after there is some more solid, concrete documentation on how to set it up after root/recovery/rom installs w/o trashing the NFC chip.

Seeing the age of the phone as <3 days - how many people that had this issue feel it *wasn't* from flashing a new ROM?

What if you nanded while it worked, then borked it. Could you restore?

Edit: also, can't we make direct copies of our partitions?

Yes but Google Wallet will still work. I just used it an hour ago at CVS. The unsupported device message is completely different than the secure element not responding message.

"Google Wallet"

Going to test a ROM I was messing with for this Device, what I am worried about it that totally blew my mind if I read this correctly from the past post's but I had not saved it(arrrh!)

If you are using the GWallet, Restore using the RUU more than 3 times your WARRANTY will be voided? Since GW is using personal info and security risk's is involved towards the User as much as Google?

To put this short, you only have 3 chances of GW being reset? I am assuming? But thought I run this by you to help make any sense.. )

Im still confused after reading all post. I have set up gw, and used already once, I was about to root now, but drivers did not load correctly so re doing that and sync.

Is there anything I should do before rooting. Do I have to do the steps above and then root, or just not root? Also should I do htc dev unlock online first aswell or after root?
