Google Wallet unofficially available on US Galaxy Note II variants

It’s surprising that more Android manufacturers and carriers haven’t jumped on the Google Wallet bandwagon, considering the rate at which the service continues to gain traction in the mobile payment space. While carriers like AT&T may rather opt for an in-house alternative, many anxious subscribers would rather utilize Google’s service. Thankfully, the Galaxy Note II has received an unofficial workaround for installing the mobile wallet software, thanks to recognized XDA developer ogdobber.

If you’re rocking a Samsung Galaxy Note II on AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile, the application can be installed simply by flashing a .zip file through your custom recovery. Unsurprisingly, Verizon users have been left out, as their bootloader has yet to be unlocked. Although, the same task can still be achieved on Big Red’s version by flashing it manually, assuming you have a bit of familiarity with adb.
