For those of you with one of the latest Android smartphones/tablets that have NFC but cannot use Google Wallet (such as any AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon phones), here’s how to install Google Wallet.
Why do you need Google Wallet?
Google Wallet is an NFC-enabled credit card payment system for those of you who don’t know. Many credit card systems around the world now support NFC-enabled credit cards and Google Wallet, meaning you don’t have to carry your credit cards anymore, just your smartphone. It’s a great way to pay for things, and much faster than swiping your credit card.
Before we begin, you will need the following things:
1. A smartphone or tablet with NFC. (Such as Galaxy S3, Note 2, Note 10.1, One X, etc…etc…)
2. Rooted with an AOSP custom ROM installed such as CM10, CM10.1, AOKP, LiquidSmooth ROM, etc…etc… Will not work on TouchWiz, Sense, non-AOSP ROMs (without additional hack but that’s outside scope of this tutorial).
3. Make sure you’ve signed into Google Wallet at least once either on your phone or computer. (If you are outside the U.S., you might have to use VPN on your computer and signed into Google Wallet at least once.) If you’ve never signed into Google Wallet, it might give you “hanging” problems while setting it up. Sign up at http://www.google.com/wallet/
If you have a rooted Android or tablet with an AOSP ROM installed, you are ready to begin!
Step 1. If you are outside the U.S., you will first have to enable U.S. Play Store. If you are in the U.S., skip this step.
Step 2. Next, we will need to “trick” the Play Store into thinking we have a Nexus device such as Galaxy Nexus, which Google Wallet works on.
Before we do anything, let’s make a backup of our build.prop file, so you can restore your original build.prop file later if needed.
