So I sideloaded the Play APK from Android Police, but after putting in my Google account information, it tells me "Couldn't sign in: There was a problem communicating with Google servers. Try again later". I have internet connection, and have tried waiting a couple hours. Google and Youtube work fine. This is very frustrating to me since I can't do much without play apps...

I'm having the same issue using rooted Lokifizh Marz's Imperium Operative ROM. It's been two days. No joy. I've had to download and install APK files instead.

Imperium Operative ROM was discontinued/put on hold a while back. Only the Patch/MOD are current and actively developed right now.

My mistake, I have run only the Patch/Mod. It's FANTASTIC. Thank you for all your work. Still not Play Store. I will update to 01/01/2014 now.

I'm going to double check it by flashing all three of my TS's to stock but as recent as 1AM today I've not had and play store install issues. It may be a play store server side issue which I've seen more than once. Even my all my Nexus devices have done this from time to time.

Thank you. I wanted to let you know I've flashed the latest update that you posted today (as an aside, the version still reports its the 02/21/2014). Anyway, still no play store. Same errors. OK with Nexus 7/ 4/Memo Pad(s). Do you think it could have something to do with the two-step verification process I've initiated with my Google account? Maybe the TS doesn't work well with that? Should I try to flash back to stock. Try again?

two step would be my first guess.

thanks for letting me know about the version tag error. I knew I missed something simple but could not figure out what.

It was the Google two-step verification process. It's not bothered any of my other devices, but the TS didn't agree with it. As soon as I disabled it, Play Store is up and active. Thank you for your help and quick responses Lokifish Marz. Have a great evening.

Thanks! I removed 2-step verification, and then did a factory reset since there appears to be no other way to remove an account from the TrueSmart. When I redid everything, Play worked.
