It was simple, what I did:
1-Uninstall Google Play
2-Downloaded Root Explorer
3-Open Root Explorer, scroll down to system and apps.
4- Go down to Vending.apk and copy it and Past it somewhere safe.
5- Delete it and replace it with Modded version.
6- Click on the Modded Version and Install.
7-Reboot And open Google Play and Enjoy.

It took me a while to figure it out but I got it to work. The downside of it that The apps I research I can't find them, not sure why.

Lost google play and unable to get it back
Hey guys, just wanted to add my experience and see if anyone can help. I rooted my phone, renamed the original Phonesky.apk and replaced it with vending.apk and renamed it to Phonesky.apk and rebooted. Wasnt' able to get Play to start, sait it had to stop or close. I uninstalled it using root uninstaller and then tried to reinstall using a backup from Titanium, keeps giving me "Application not installed" without any other message. Any other suggestions? Using an HTC One X w/ ICS fully rooted, using root explorer to manage files.

^thommi12 I'm not sure this app was supposed to help us who cannot make purchases in Play Store. At least I still have that problem when trying to make a purchase "An error occurred. Please try again."

Try this one: (flashable with CWM)
It's still 3.5.15, but it works on CM9 AOKP (credits to Sakaschi).

In order to make paid apps availible to me from overseas I:
1. Force End Task "Google Play Store"
2. Cleared app cache/data for "Google Play Store"
3. Used Paid Apps Enabler (or another such app) to change my gsm operator code and country.
4. Used Open VPN to connect from a US source.
5. Restarted Google Play (the modded version).

I used to just need to end Market's task, and change my gsm operator. I'm not actually sure the vpn and cache/data clearing, and modded Play Store are necessary. I'll test further later.

EDIT: Seems that even with the vpn and the modded Play store, while viewing of paid apps works, actually buying them doesn't. FAIL. At least one of my devices makes it possible (My tablet, perhaps because it doesn't have a SIM card? still lets me purchase with just Paid Apps Enabler's gsm operator code change...)
