Google Wallet Extends to More Nexus S Devices Thanks to Hack


Bummed that Sprint and Google decided to exclude all but Nexus S 4G owners in their Google Wallet launch? While we’re sure Google is working to get the service out to everyone, developers have taken it upon themselves to make all Nexus S devices compatible.

The job was done by XDA’s got2best and it requires a rooted device with the latest version of CyanogenMod – we’re hoping most of you are on that to begin with. From there, the process is pretty simple and straight forward if you know your way around a custom recovery. Be sure to find downloads and instructions at XDA and let us know how it goes if you happen to try it. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
