Google Wallet on the International Galaxy S4 (i9505)

Hi,

Although officially it is not possible to use Google Wallet on the Galaxy S4, you can do it.
Present you instructions on how to launch Google Wallet on Galaxy i9505 S4.
You need:

Everything you do on your risk.
Depending on whether you have only rooted phone or you have a custom recovery is different way to proceed it.


If you have custom recovery, you need download Wallet-CWM.zip and flash it via recovery

  • turn off phone
  • turn on into recovery (Power+home+volume up)
  • select downloaded zip file 
  • flash it
  • reboot
If you have only root, you need download system.zip and
  • extract files on your sdcard
  • turn off NFC
  • using trusted app like rootexplorer delete files which are in downloaded zip, next copy files from extracted zip file
  • change permission like you see on the picture

Next you need install com.modaco.xposed.wallet-1.apk and run Xposed Installer. Then press install button and on Modules tab check Google Wallet Root and Redion Check Remover.




After it turn off Xposed Installer and edit using rootexplorer lines of build.prop file which is located in system.
ro.product.model=Galaxy Nexus 
ro.product.name=yakju 
ro.product.device=maguro 






Reebot phone and turn on NFC, WiFi/3G and  Google Wallet.

If you have correctly configured it turn off Google Wallet and restore original lines of build.prop file and reeboot phone.


Now Google Wallet should work correctly.
