This was the news I have been waiting for! I love using the Nexus 6P but have been bummed a little bit because till now Android Pay would not work with a rooted device. Gotta love the developer community who work on these mods that we get to benefit from!
The ROM that works with Android Pay is called Chroma. This is a familiar ROM in the ROM/developer community and has been the ROM I have been running since I rooted my Nexus 6P.
Chroma is a pretty cool ROM because it keeps the stock Android framework/theme but adds some mods that should be part of stock Android such as reboot menu options and clear all apps feature. Other features include…

This honestly ticks me off. Please give credit where credit is due. I have lost all respect for Chroma. I will be finding a new ROM to run as soon as I get the chance.
