I wonder if there is any advantage to installing it from the market, even though I already have it installed?

The only real perk is that it should get the updates. And yes, it will install on a VZW GNex. That's what I am running and I put it on mine earlier tonight.

Not working for me. Everytime I click the Icon, it goes straight to the market app and tells me that my carrier doesnt support it. Im signed out of everything and cleared search history on both my browser and market app

I don't know if it makes a difference, but are you using the stock browser? I was on stock.

Y'all if you have issues with the trick most people are using try this(this is assuming you don't have it set to launch the browser or market by default when clicking a market link)-

Do all of this from your phone.
1. http://market.android.com
2. Choose browser.
3. Search Google Wallet
4. CLICK ICON, NOT INSTALL
5. Choose Market
6. Update or install!

if clicking the icon takes you directly to the market and it says its not supported, go back into the browser and click and HOLD on the icon. Open in a new tab and it should work.

I went to the market to make sure it was showing up, and it did show up as an update to the mod, (gave two options "open" and "update" so I daringly chose "update"), so I updated and have had no issues (secure element issues specifically) yet, YMMV. I'll try it today at lunch to verify...

It took several tries and the video on the droid-life link but I got it installed!

Because I'm a jerk, it's not so much that I really care about using Google Wallet, it's just a middle-finger at Verizon for not allowing it (which always seemed anti-competitive to me).

rexdog's method worked fine. I was able to update the version from XDA without issue.

Not that I'll ever use it down here

I agree, but I also plan on using that 10 bucks too :-)

Protip: I think this procedure assumes you don't have any app defaults set. After it didn't work the first time, I cleared my market and ICS Browser+ defaults. It worked according to the instructions after that.

Also, I had the old "haxor3d" version which I uninstalled first and everything transferred properly.

Edit: I wonder what VZW's new excuse is for blocking it. Seems they can't say Google doesn't have the app ready for the GNex anymore.

I got an "Error: application already exists". Then I opened up the market app manually and it shows that google wallet is "downloading" in the my apps page. However, it's been going for a while, so I don't think it's going to install. I already installed a version (1.1-R48v4) from xda, that I think may already be this update.

I click "x stop 1" to stop the google wallet download but it doesn't do anything, still appears to be downloading.

So I killed the market app in the app manager, and then reopened it and google wallet is listed under my apps. Not sure if it was there before (maybe the updated xda version was recognized by market). But I guess its there... now just wanna test it out!

Check out the link that Trophy provided, and read the instructions carefully. Its a little tricky. But basically boils down to this:

Open Browser and go to android market (when given the choice of browser or market app, choose browser.

Search for wallet, and click on the icon (not the install button underneath). (again, choose browser if it prompts)

click on Install on that page, and it will make you sign in to your google account.

Once you are signed in, you will see its not compatible to install. NOw press back on your browser, and you should get a prompt for browser or market app again. This time, choose market app. it will open the market and let you click install. (I had a message that said it wasn't compatible with my carrier at the top of the screen, but it still installed and works fine).

In case you haven't seen, the method for installing Wallet also works for any app in the market. all those apps blocked by the pesky carriers are now free game.

Just as a follow-up, it just failed twice on me at lunch today. I get "the last transaction may not have completed, please ask the cashier if it has." or something similar. This was at a McDonald's, same place as before (although a different register). This is the second time using it since the market upgrade, and it worked once before so I do not think it is an issue with the app now. I'll try it again tomorrow I guess. Anyone else have issues after using the official Market version?

I get that too on occasion (both with side loaded and market), its more the reader didn't fully complete the transfer than anything with the app. Just try it again until it works.

Thanks! I hadn't ran into that yet so it had me a tiny bit worried. I only tried it twice while standing there (I didn't want to hold up the line too much for what is -sadly- still largely a gimmick) so that could be it. Plus the cashier was more of leaning over the counter to see what exactly I was doing, so there may have been a prompt she was missing or something.

The good news is that it ooooo'ed and aaaahhh'ed about ten people in line there, and totally humbled this arrogant guy who is always in there with his iPad trying to make everyone feel inferior for not having one. I'd always tried being fairly discreet with it before, but I think Wallet needs to be shown off a bit after seeing people react today...

I only tried it twice while standing there (I didn't want to hold up the line too much for what is -sadly- still largely a gimmick) so that could be it. Plus the cashier was more of leaning over the counter to see what exactly I was doing, so there may have been a prompt she was missing or something.

The good news is that it ooooo'ed and aaaahhh'ed about ten people in line there, and totally humbled this arrogant guy who is always in there with his iPad trying to make everyone feel inferior for not having one. I'd always tried being fairly discreet with it before, but I think Wallet needs to be shown off a bit after seeing people react today...
I haven't had anyone approach me while I am doing it at the vending machine yet, although the times it has come up in conversation, it has definitely piqued their interest.

I've used it at:
  • OfficeMax
  • Radio Shack
  • Sheetz (gas station)
  • McDonald's
I've had like one or two comments, but nothing like today's little unintended public outreach session. In fact one time at Sheetz I was buying gas and a guy came over, but he just wanted to point out the "no cell phones" sign, so I told him I was testing something and he left me alone...

Made my first purchase over the weekend (whole foods). The first try it didn't work --- I think it wasn't running in the background or something. The second try (after opening wallet and unlocking it), it didn't at first want to go through --- it kinda froze a bit during entering the pin and wigged out a bit --- but it did work after a bit of finagling. I figure I just have to get used to the process and all the sensitivities of the app, but it's pretty cool!
