I had problems with my GS3 and decided to ODIN back to stock. I then took all the OTA updates. Now, I have the Google Play Store no connection error. I have rooted the phone with towelroot and would very much like to use the Google Play Store. I used total commander to manipulate the etc/hosts file, but that did not work either. I have also factory reset many times.

Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Have you tried to delete the host file and then log in without rebooting?

All I know is to delete "hosts" from "etc" folder. I can look in to it a little more. Until then, try deleting host again.

Edit the hosts file, there should be two lines of text and numbers. Put a "#" in the very front of the second line of text.
