    Google Pay not working anymore

    Fixed mine. Nfc settings by default were wrong. That and rebooting fixed it. Payment successful. Chinese phone using global rom, latest stable. Everything left vanilla.

    Google Pay not working anymore

    Not working for me. Cant even add my card. Just recently restored latest stable rom after a custom rom.. Not sure why its still saying its rooted.. other apps working fine (bpay, paypal, credit card apps etc) Not got anything like magisk running..

    Google Pay not working anymore

    Keep having this issue too. Now it's unfixable. I've tried clearing data, cache, removing and adding card. Issue still remains.. Everything fully updated too.. Anyone know if restoring the global rom will work with Google pay? Also where I'd find that?

    Extreme battery drain suddenly

    Thanks for the app. Have had a look.. all seems fine? I did have a all black theme on.. could it be that was actually not beneficial for the battery? Have removed that, removed any widgets too.. but had those for ages so seems odd that it could have been those..
