Possible Cause:
- system file named 'hosts' (/etc/hosts) points to a Google server that changed IP, thus blocking access to Apps.

Possible Solution:
- edit 'hosts' file (/etc/hosts)


How to do it
- First, a rooted device(derr)
-download root explorer(from below)
-go to settings->apps-> playstore
- clear cache and data of playstore
-open root explorer
- go to a folder named 'etc' from the Root tab
- click the mount r/w button on the top right corner
-hold the 'host' file until a pop-up menu appear
-click the 'open in text editor' button
-you will see 2 IP address in the file
-the second IP address does not have a '#' infront of it
- then at in '#' infront of the second IP address
-now save it and then reboot/restart your phone
-TADDA, your playstore should be fixed



If that doesnt work, change/correct the date of your phone

Press Thank if i help you^^


Glad to help

Reinstalling ROM is not required. Just wipe data first and see if it works fine. If it still fails, install another version of Google play. If it still fails, try reverting your hosts file. If all the above don't work, only then you reinstall the ROM. Try working on the smaller details instead of looking at the big picture.
