  1. This didn’t work on my Samsung Galaxy s5 from Verizon. I do have super su, and was able to disable superuser, but android pay still didn’t work.

  2. Yes, I had my Oneplus 3 on stock…set up my bank card and used it fine.
    Rooted ‘after’ and card is still stored as before, went to use today and message came up on the screen notifying me that my device was rooted?

    Surely you dont have to disable SU everytime you want to pay by Android Pay?

      • Previously Android Pay checked only for super user access and some apps presence. Now it does a direct check of the bootloader and whether or not it is locked or unlocked.
