Wear Magisk module to downgrade Google Pay on Wear OS Pie to Oreo version to bypass unsupported country message

This module if for all who updated their Wear OS devices to Pie and are locked out of Google Pay due to the Geo-location restrictions on the Pie version that are present for the wear but not the phone. This module will likely become obsolete once Google decides to deprecate the Oreo version of Google Pay and prevent the use of it. Hence please continue to support this thread https://www.reddit.com/r/WearOS/comm..._have_no_idea/

Instructions:
  1. Install/Flash Magisk module: OreoPay4PieWear_v1.zip
  2. Refrain from updating Google Pay in the play store
  3. If accidentally updated, just uninstall updates on the play store page
  4. Optional: Because using this module means that your device is rooted, use my version of PayEnabler attached that uses "pm enable" to re-enable and automatically start Google Pay instead of accessibility services when it gets automatically disabled.
  5. Use Google Pay from unsupported countries on wear again

Changelogs:
v1 - Initial release
-----

RootPayEnabler
RPE Icon

version 1
Wear application that uses root privileges to enable (if disabled) and open Google Pay automatically

Uses "pm enable" and root (apparently required) to enable Google Pay, then proceeds to open Google Pay

Demo:

Instructions:
  1. Install and open app via ADB: RootPayEnabler.apk (adb install path/to/RootPayEnabler.apk)
  2. On screens that cover the allow button, let the root request dialog to timeout and allow it manually in manager
  3. Allow root access if not allowed yet and re-open the app
  4. Open the app every time Google Pay is needed

Changelogs
v1 - Initial release

Are there people who are unable to add cards due to a rooted device message?

If so, please try this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...postcount=1719
If that still doesn't work, try this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...postcount=1720

Please do let me know which method works so I can incorporate into the Magisk module for v1.2, thank you.

@jarylc appreciate if you can help cause I am not sure I should install the above apk's. I was running Google Pay from @moneytoo here https://forum.xda-developers.com/wea...t3750815/page8 and it was running perfectly fine and accessibility used to open Google Pay in about 8 seconds, then suddenly and without any updates on my watch (as both play store and system auto-update is turned off) the accessibility feature stopped performing, hence I have to enable google pay manually every time. I am running Wear OS v2.6 on Oreo v8.0.0 and Pay Enabler v6 from the above link. When I uninstall Google Pay, it only gets disabled and it does not actually gets uninstalled. Appreciate if you can help.

I assume you are talking about the watch...
You have to download a file manager from wear playstore (not all of them work with Magisk) or you can try to flash the module through twrp, but I never tried it so I don't know for sure if it would work

I think File Explorer FTP Server can do that

Hi. Can you give a more detailed response on how you rooted the watch and installed the apk? Thank you.

This is great, thanks.

But from time to time the Google Pay app get disabled again.
Did anyone find out what is triggering this?
Is it when the device connects directly to Wifi and google play services checks that we are on a unauthorized country?

I think of an app that can run in the background, or a contrab job, that check if the package is disabled, and enables it again.

@jarylc Did you thought on making this part of the magisk module ?

So .. I decided to do it by myself

I created a new magisk module.
This will install the right google pay and will have a job running every 2 hours to enable the package.

In case you want, we can increase/decrease that time.

I will start testing in a daily basis and see how it goes.

Source code here: https://github.com/cinzas/magisk-gpay-wearos-downgrade

I'm also attaching the module in case you want to test it.
