As a result, whenever I try to sync my Google account, it says "Sync is currently experiencing problems it will be back shortly."
If someone gives me the apk, will I be able to install it just like any other app and make my problems disappear? I am a beginner, so if anyone could help me out and explain it to me detailed, please help. I'm desperate.
EDIT: I am rooted, on Android 4.4.2, no custom ROM
