[Q] Google sync not working on Kitkat
Been having a bit of problems with the Kitkat roms for our device,.
Both the rom and Gapps install fine in recovery (tried with both an ancient CWM, and now latest 4ext) and it boots just fine, but cannot sync with my google account. The usual menu asking if I whish to connect this device to a google account doesn't show automatically like it used to in previous android versions (only the menu to add a cyanogenmod account pops up. Tried both logging in to CM and skipping it, with identical results), and adding my Google account manually tells me it's connected, but it is unable to sync anything (cal, contacts, gmail etc) to or from my account.
Opening hangouts gives me the message "Google Play services, which some of your applications rely on, is not supported by your device", but installing the latest apk of Google Play Services manually does nothing to help.
Play store is nowhere to be found, though for example Gmail shows up like normal (but only says "Waiting for sync" when opened).
Tried Flinny's alpha 2 and 3, as well as Cyankat 1.0 and Nevergone's version as well as two different zips with Gapps. All MD5 sums checks out correctly. Full wiped several times. 4.2 works like a charm.
Has anyone else encountered this problem before? Any ideas what I can do?
