Hello,

after searching the forums, I havn't found a solution to my particular issue with the Play Store:

I'm always getting the error message "no connection". Even though it's not a connectivity issue related to my IP or whatsoever: I can with no issues access the playstore via the browser.

I have:

- cleared the cache and deleted the date of Google Play
- deleted all data in use at Google Services
- uninstalled Google Play Updates
- uninstalled Google Play and installed a .apk I downloaded from the web
- tried the market enabler app - even though I wasn't expecting any improvement from that move
- updated from 4.3 to 4.4

result: Google Play still tells me to have "no connection"

What else can I try besides resetting my phone?

Thanks!

well, that is the only ticket available to you. Why not backup->reset->restore a better option rather than wasting times while searching for solutions

I can tell you there are many problems with the Play Store, at least on the Developer side of things, such as statistics for example.

For me, sometimes it works after i delete the hosts file from /system/etc/
I don't really know what causes it. It only happens on some specific ROMs..

I've just said that. You don't really need to repeat it. You're just trying to increase your number of posts. -.-
