You will definitrely need Root for doing changes in hosts file.
Thus it is impossible that host will can be issue on unrooted stock as its hostfile is almost blank (localhost doesn't count)

well I can say that I have seen this isssue on several other phones as well. My secondary phone is also having the issue. My friends are also having this issue on other phones. So definitely not Moto's problem either I would say.

How do u know its completely wrong? Have you tried it and didn't work? Obviously it needs root access.. don't dismiss a method without trying it.. i have used it on samsung y, samsung s duos as well as moto g with full success.. and u must have a 100% correct method for sure, y don't u mention it?

You said:

That is just completely wrong. You really think an app (which BTW never uses root) rebuilds the hosts file!!!

Again have u ever tried it? When i say you require root access, i mean to say you require it to delete the hosts file as you will not be able to do so with the stock file manager without root access..

Thus is not working for me right now? Changed host file multiple times rebooted nothing... Host file remains the same and the market still no connection. Any other ideas?

As I said, hosts file is irrelevant here, unless its been altered to have an entry for the hostname of the playstore in it which points to an invalid IP. But let's face it, that is not the case.

If you have no connection at all though then your issue is different to the original issue in this thread.
