Just tried checking whether I still have root via root checker and it says I do. Really not sure what's going on. Does anyone have an advice on how to grant rw permissions to the hosts file?

get rid of total commander, its garbage. get root explorer. also, youll probably have to flash the latest supersu, since you flash a few months ago. i know they updated their su binaries a few times in the last few months. you have to keep stuff like that current.

Fair enough. I actually just got the latest root explorer and was finally able to delete the hosts file only to find out that it doesn't actually solve the play store problem. What options do I have left? Factory recovery?

factory reset is an option, as well as flashing the factory img.
