Android Pay cannot be used

    I just updated Google Wallet, which installed a new, replacement App called Android Pay. It requires me to setup a Credit/Debit card to use the app.

    When I add a card, I get the message "Android Pay cannot be used" followed by "Google is unable to verify that your device or the software running on it is Android compatible".

    Is this happening to anyone else running COS 12.1 on a rooted OP1?

    The annoying part is I don't even want to use Android Pay. I was only using Wallet to store all my damn Loyalty Cards.

    Android Pay only works with if your running 4.4 or higher and since your phone is rooted that may cause it to not verify in a sense.

    Yep have read the same reports, I believe if it's rooted, it won't work.

    Historically once you root a device NFC things don't work because it affects the secure elements therefore they disable it as a precaution.

    I was having the same problem on my OPO Cm 12.1 rooted & running xposed.

    To get it working I disabled SU and uninstalled xposed. Then I was able to add my cards.

    Everything is still working after I re-enable SU and reinstalled xposed.

    I uninstalled root and xposed and I still can't get Android Pay to work. What versions of Pay and Play Services do you have installed?

    Hope you get it working.

    Not rooted, but encrypted, 4.4.4, One+ One and Android Pay does not work. I get the same error when I try to add a card; "Google is unable to verify that your device or the software running on it is Android compatible".

    I got the update this evening. The two things I needed to do were:
    1. Uncheck 'enable superuser' in SuperSU
    2. reset DPI to default
    Afterwards, I was able to complete the adding process, though I have not tried tap and pay yet.

    Thanks shirilover!! Changing the DPI back to default was what did the trick for me. I don't have root, hence no SuperSU, so I can confirm that the DPI setting definitely affects the Android Pay app.

    Once I changed the DPI back to default of 480, I was able to add my credit card. I then changed the DPI back to 400 and Android Pay still seems to work but the real test is when I go to pay for something.

    I am using slimroms lollipop 5.1.1 rooted not using xposed and still can't get it to work. I am now resetting my dpi to default and removing supersu. I'll report back if I get it working.

    You can't use android pay if your ROM is rooted. You have to disable SuperSU, or use rootcloak with exposed..

    Just to clarify... did you remove SuperSU the app? From posts I've seen, you have to uncheck "Enable superuser" from within SuperSU. Did you do that before removing the app?

    yes I checked the "enable superuser" so it is currently disabled. I should clarify that I didn't fully remove the SuperSU app because it's baked into slimLP rom. should I remove it completely or just go to stock COS 5.1 because I really use the google wallet and want to start using android pay

    So, I went to Walgreens to buy a pack of gum to test. 2 Eclipse car cup for $6. Went up to pay for it, tapped my phone to the terminal, Android Pay app launches automatically...then proceeds to crash my OPO. So not only did Android Pay not work, but I had to force boot my phone. :(

    Will try again later at a different retailer, but I'm not hopeful.

    I disabled SuperSU, put in the card, and it was able to go through. I reactivated root, but I don't know if that would affect it.
