Google Wallet Installer for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S3.

Requires ROOT, an UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER, and BUSYBOX!(A deodexed ROM is just recommended)


My newest project, RemoteFlash, was just released! Take a look and give it a try!

Wallet Installer Is Now Available For Free To All Supported Carrier Models On XDA! (Donations Appreciated)

My application, "Wallet Installer", will install Google Wallet on almost any US based Samsung Galaxy S3. It simply edits your build.prop and then places the correct modifications into your system. It downloads all the files from my personal server, which is pretty quick. Just select the appropriate Rom type: AOSP, JB Touchwiz, or ICS TouchWiz, and then your carrier: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or US Cellular. I also added a restore option for your build.prop, so you can restore it after you setup Google Wallet. Hopefully this helps you out and makes the process easier!

Wallet Installer has been updated on the server side. The credit goes to Paul Obrien for the new version! To install it, simply reset Google Wallet, delete it, and then rerun Wallet Installer! Make sure to also have BusyBox installed/updated!

Please donate if my work helps you : )

It does re-write your recovery, but it appears to have worked perfectly. The install part was actually pretty seamless. But I would suggest some clarification on the play store about everything with the recovery. Well worth $2. Thanks.

What if you already have a recovery, say CWM? Does it still flash a new recovery over the old one?
It does. Backing up the current recovery is a very possible future update though. I just got the other carriers supported, so that wasn't my main concern at the time. You can simply flash back over it with whatever recovery you prefer.

Glad to have helped! If you have any questions feel free to post them or pm me. I now have 3 threads and Google Play comments to watch, but I always try to reply as much as possible!

Forgive my ignorance, but once you root your GS3, doesn't that automatically unlock your bootloader? If not, then how do you unlock it on a Tmous Gs3?

I use a Verizon S3, so I don't know the specifics of your methods to root/unlock. The VZW S3 had a locked bootloader at first, but the dev community managed to unlock it. You'll have to ask around your device forums for an answer.

You don't need to do anything other than root on tmo s3.

Just a note on this app. Google Play now recognizes my phone as a Galaxy Nexus. May not be a huge deal, but things like TeamViewer quick support won't work because the build.prop is telling it I have a nexus.

That's the point of the restore build.prop option. As long as you have your cards already setup in wallet, you can restore it and your device will be registered as an S3, and Wallet will still work.

Hi I'm about to buy this app and use it to install wallets. I understand that it will flash a new recovery an that I can just flash my old one back. I also understand that I need to restore my build prop afterwards. My question is that once I hopefully get this working what if I wanted to flash another mod or rom? Could I still do that? I remember reading about the secure element breaking and not being able to?

Yup! You can still flash other mods. I would just not recommend flashing another wallet mod on top of the wallet my app installed. Also, before flashing a ROM, reset Google Wallet.
