    Apparently there was another update to Google Wallet to version 1.5-R79-v5
    but it states "your device isn't compatible with this version" do we have to side load the update from now on?

    Sup shadyyy! I got the same error. I would imagine that a sideload would be in order but beware your source. With that in mind, I am yet to look for an apk since the current version is working fine, though I kinda really wanna update it. Lol. I will look around an try to post a link when I get the chance.

    WOW, I even tried to push it from play.google.com and it won't push to my Nexus. They've really locked us out of this one, haven't they? :confused:

    Here's the one I installed a couple weeks ago. I've got it all set up and it seems to be running fine, I just haven't had the chance to actually buy something yet.

    EDIT: This is the R75 version, not the newest R79.

    Yeah I was thinking the same, mine works perfectly but having the most recent updated version is something i kinda want. I heard that there was a modded apk that takes away the carrier warnings so it doesnt matter what network you are on

    The updated version was worth the install for me because I've got both my visa cards linked now instead the Google gift card.

    im on version 1.5-r75-v6 and it works fine, just bought something today, what is the benefit of updating the app?

    On the version that I was previously on, you were only allowed to add MasterCard credit cards and Google gift cards. On the new version, you can add Visa, Mastercard, etc as well as the Google gift card.

    Yeah the1.5-R75-v6 version added all the additional card brands; I have all mine added. I have no idea what the R79 version brings to the table.

    Is it POSSIBLE that this is a version for GSM phones? Maybe that's why Verizon users can't install it: it might botch a good thing we have with R75. Just speculating here...

    Can I pull the .apk from my Nexus 7, as that updates to the latest version? How would I do that and is it a good idea?

    Not sure what is in R79.


    When I tried to re-load GW a couple weeks ago, I could not load it from the market. I tried every trick in book that used to work. I think VZW has gotten serious about locking us out.

    Yeah, something tells me that we're kind of stuck with R75... IF it'll still work. I haven't tried it since the lockout...

    It is R75. It was posted around 1 August and has not been updated. I downloaded it and it is bit for bit identical with the R75 I already had.

    I am still looking for R79.

    How do you know for sure that the apk is legit, other than trusting its source?

    Hence the closed garden approach of app stores. Whenever you sideload, there is a slight risk.

    Yeah I got the R75 version. Do you know what the difference is?

    I'm going to add that new version to my phone. I'm currently still on a very old side-loaded version. What do I have to do to remove the current version before installing the new one? Thanks!

    Is there any way to edit my build.prop file or another file to trick Google Play into thinking that we have an authorized device?

    I removed all my cards, reset Wallet (from its settings menu), then uninstalled it before installing the new apk.

    So, it finally happened this morning, tried to open wallet to pay for a drink, got a "This version is no longer supported, please update to latest version in Play Store". Except as we know, latest version is blocked from VZW phones. So after 9 months, Verizon has FINALLY managed to get Wallet completely blocked from being installed/updated from the market.

    So we are going to need a safe apk for Wallet if we want to continue to use it.

    Ok, I installed the one from the xda link posted above. Another nice little bonus, you can't even get into the app to reset it, so I was gnashing my teeth afraid I was going to brick my secure element. But at least for me, it installed fine, and all my info was still there.

    You mean we can't even use what we HAVE anymore?
