I recently removed knox and rooted my phone following the guide. Worked great... I got into my phone with CM10, except for a constant "There was a problem communicating with google servers. Try again later." error message. I thought it was a bad wipe, so I rewiped and reflashed the ROM. No joy. I did a full factory reset from the menu. No joy.

Searching on Google and XDA yielded a lot of messages about the Google servers going down a few years ago. Obviously this wasn't the case. Finally, I found something that worked:
  • Disabled 2-step Authentication (mostly to make it easier on myself)
  • Removed the account
  • Cleared the data on the "Google Account Manager"
  • Readded said account

This worked for me. I'm on CM10.2.1-dspr (stable).

Hi, I don't have 2-step Authentication enabled on my google account...
this is a newly flashed rom on this phone (from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2589303) - every thing is o.k. but I cant connect to the google play / add new account to the phone etc...
i get error:
"there was a problem communicating with google servers/ try again later"

installing the Google Play Store 4.6.16 did not help - still the same error.
can you help??

I don't know if you've fixed this already, but I deleted the data and cache of every Google app and I'd worked.
