    I know of quite a few that do it it without a problem. I wouldn't use it even on a stock unrooted phone.

    Well I'm rooted and when I pull up the app there's a banner at the top stating device not supported. I touch the banner and it takes me to Google stating its not safe to use device while rooted for security reasons. I don't remember it showing that while stock.

    The banner is only there because it's rooted....the app still works as it normally would.

    the only reason that's there, so If someone hacks your phone and gets into your account, you can't blame it on them.

    How likely is that to happen? Anyone hear of some one being hacked on their phone? It just kinda sounds silly to me someone hacking my phone. Guess they can hack it if they want a bunch of pictures of guitars or something nothing really important on here. Hahaha

    While I trust all the developers I've dealt with, it would be pretty easy for some code to be put into a custom ROM that could send the bank account information to him.

    The reason it's there is more of a disclaimer. It's telling you that if you have issues with Google Wallet and your phone is rooted, you're sh!t outta luck. It's not so much about your phone being hacked.

    If you use Cyanogenmod 9 or 10, you can actually turn root on/off with the touch of a button (in settings). So you could run Cyanogenmod and then turn off root access for apps to better protect the phone.

    You can also do this with OTA RootKeeper. It would suck having to load cyanogenmod just for wallet.

    Yeah, no thank you. I really don't trust using my debit card to pay for stuff. I could only imagine having all my info on my phone that can be easily retrieved by a hacker. I rather pay with cash.
    How do we know we are not brains in a V.A T.S ?

    Where does it say that? I've used it for every OTA on my GS3, and it's worked perfectly so far.
