Install Google Wallet On Your Galaxy Nexus

Most of you are probably pretty bummed that Verizon has made up their mind to block Google Wallet on their Galaxy Nexus devices. Also, some of you are probably getting impatient waiting for Sprint to release it to the GSM Google Wallet phones. As a lot of you probably already know, right now Google is offering a free $10 debit card to everyone that signs up and you want the free money! You are in luck, Google Wallet can be installed on your Galaxy Nexus device via a leaked APK!

First of all, make sure your Galaxy Nexus is on ICS 4.0.2 and make sure you are in the US. Just go to Settings >> About Phone to check the firmware version. Also make sure you haven't installed any previous version of the Google Wallet app. If you did, go see the tutorial on the XDA forums, I can't help you. If you are not on ICS 4.0.2, update it. If you need help, check out my tutorial here.

After you check your firmware version, go ahead and get the APK from the XDA forums here. You will need to enable non-market apps in your settings (Settings >> Security >> Unknown sources). Copy the APK into your phone, and use Installer, File Exploer, or something else to install the APK onto your phone. Install it like you would with any other APK.

Simply finish the registration process and within a minute, the $10 debit card should be delivered to your phone! This debit card can be reloaded after you use it up. Anyways, I had no issues using this app. I managed to use my free $10 on a meal from McDonald's and a free drink at Jamba Juice. If you got any issues leave me a comment below and I will try to help.
