    Right...hint hint. I just downloaded Market Unlocker to see if that will let me update Wallet as if I am on Sprint.

    Morning everyone! Well iPad announcement seemed boring as usual. Tim Cook did a great job of bashing Android though. Complains about the Twitter app just being stretched out and not optimized for big screens. Well, yeah it is like that. And just how long did FB take to optimize its app for the iPad (if it even has yet)?
    Anyway, someone posted this video on FB the other day, it's awesome. I like trying to figure out where in the world it is filming. Make sure to watch it in 1080p

    Have a great day everyone.



    This one is a bit better:

    Morning! :)

    Embedding youtubes is up to you, some find it more convenient. For those that want to simply visit the source page of an embedded youtube, click the green title bar at the top of the tube.

    Will have to check out your ISS one later, can't wait. :)

    They have a few from inside the ISS in 3D, for those curious and able to watch that sort of thing (many 3D goodies there can be viewed with red-cyan glasses if nothing else). While not the greatest, it's just a little more _there_. :)

    I may go silent for a little while today. I have parent / teacher conference @ 9:00 and hopefully burning brush after that. I have to get rid of the hurricane Irene and Halloween blizzard debris. I lost three trees and dozens of branches between the two storms.:mad:

    60+ mph winds did a bit of damage around my place yesterday afternoon as well. Best luck with the cleanup and the PT conf. ;) :)

    One of those few times where I'm glad I'm a renter. We'll purchase a house one day (but dear lord are housing prices in DC absurd), until then, I'll let a landlord deal with all the problems.

    Good morning all.

    In the office at 730 this morning, should be a nice, long busy day. Got my bagel and Starbucks in hand ready to go.

    So quick story about Google Wallet, that is frustrating me now. I was at my girlfriends house last night and decided to try to reprovision my card and to my surprised it worked and I had my balance and my card back in my Google Wallet. Then when I got home and I wanted to test what they fixed to clear the data and now its not working again.

    Basically what happens is if you clear the data and try to go back into the app, you select your account and it prompts you for your account password again before setting a PIN so that the person must know your Google password to get back into the app and set a PIN. This is what I figured they would do so just an FYI. Now I need to figure out why I can't re-add my card.

    Stigy, Wallet keeps wanting me to update to a newer version. Before market switched to google play (last night for me) I was able to click ok to update, then it would go to the market and deny my due to verizon,. After that, wallet would reopen automatically, then allow me to deny updating wallet and accept my pin and my pre-paid card was there. Now, it wont let me open wallet at all but keeps pushing me back to Google Play, which denies us b/c of being on verizon and never lets me deny the upgrade and open wallet. Any ideas on how to upgrade wallet?

    Ryan, this is the same thing that has happened to me. Hope they get it fixed soon.

    Makes me wish I hadn't tried another ROM, especially since I was back to AOKP soon after.

    I don't understand why you are getting different results, but I was able to update wallet two days ago from the market with no issue.

    ok, I used this one and it did update wallet. When I opened it, it shows my prepaid card, has the correct balance but the card flashes all white and then stays white. Still shows it as the default card, still shows the card balance. It does not show in play as one of my apps, it says it is version 1.1-R52v7.
    Does this mean it is working?

    Good Morning, I was able to until yesterday when my Market switched to google play. Can you check which version of wallet you are on, thanks.

    While I can understand it may not be the right time for you personally, home prices and mortgage rates will never be more favorable for a buyer right now. In fact, once Europe gets it through its head that the Euro is dead in its current form, and makes the required changes, the US is next to see a similar situation. Treasury rates will start rising, along with it all other rates, including mortgages.

    But you were saying it was denying you because you are on Verizon... I have not had such a problem, my app will actually update.

    Hi all! I have an oddity that I can't seem to fix and I'm hoping someone here can help. When I open my gallery the folders are all screwy - thumbnails are showing in folders they're not actually in (I verified this in Root Explorer). I have tried restarting the phone. I've tried clearing cache. I'm out of ideas. Help please!

    I guess my understanding of technology just does not match that of VZW....I get the differences between wallet and Isis but because Isis is still so far out in the future...not even months away, but probably years, its really just disappointing I guess that the carrier I am on won't allow wallet...although I am glad to be at the edge of tech, allowing Google to update their own security and functions to make wallet work better, I do wish they would hurry it up sometimes....and VZW....well yeah that's not gonna happen but still...limiting functionality on a device like this???? Frustrating is all.
    I know the devs at Google are working on it, and the android devs are seeing the same things we are, doesn't make it any easier to stomach tho. /rant
    Thanks for letting me vent.

    Interesting, yours still updates even after market became Google Play, can you check what version of wallet you have? I just used the apk Stigy provided above, and while it appears to work, Wallet does not show up in Google Play as one of my apps.

    Good vent,lol. I wonder if ISIS will be accepted at as many places as wallet? I love NFC, use it for tags as well. This is why I love our Nexus and even with my one way audio issues (really annoying) I do not want to change to a different phone.

    Did this happen with the reload of the ROM this morning? Did your files get moved around at all? Or does it seem to be the actual gallery app from gapps that is not seeing things right?

    I had weird folders created for my images when I went from 26 to 27 and ended up re flashing everything because there were other issues too...and that fixed my gallery. I also found that one of my resize pic apps was saving not to my SD card/ext storage, so I had to redo the path that my pics were saving too....
    I wish I could help, sorry. Good luck. And good morning!!!

    Download QuickPic and see if it fixes it or displays correct. I use it instead of the Gallery and I think its much better.

    When I first rebooted it was all fine. Then I went back in to grab my wallpaper and it was FUBAR'd. I guess I can try a dirty wipe and reflash and see what happens.

    Hey BB...and good morning all!

    Have you tried moving all files in DCIM to your computer, clearing data on gallery app, then pushing those files back to it folder? I remember this once happened to me back in the day with my Android 2.1 LG Ally. Give it a shot. Also wipe cache and dalvik after doing so.

    BB, did you have to wipe after last night? If so, perhaps there is a connection here. My Nexie went to Google Play last night as well, only effect on the phone was with Wallet that I can detect so far.
