I am on verizons network (Trying to use wifi) I own the Droid Bionic with firmware 4.1.2.
Well today I rooted, everything was working perfectly. However after 2-4 hours after rooting, my wifi went from connected to in range and my play store wouldnt connect at all, using wifi or data. I figured the root was messing it up so I did a factory reset to help get rid of it, root seems to be gone, but now I cant sign up/in the google play store. I get an error message saying, " Cant establish a reliable connection to the server. This could be a temporary problem or your android device may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call customer care." I have no idea what this means and I am getting to annoyed, I got this phone yesterday 5/16 today is the 17th... My wifi bar is gray which means "in range"when it should be blue "connected" When I look at my wifi settings my internet says it is connected however. Any ideas at all???? Please help!! Also I did change date and time to moscow to try and use freedom for app purchases, I changed it back to automatic date, time, and timezone.

If your root is gone after a factory reset, then you weren't rooted correctly in the first place (edit: if your rooting process involved downloading SuperSU or the equivalent through the Play Store, then just sideload the apk since you can't get to the Play Store as the SU binary will still be installed and that combined with the re-installed app should establish root access again). A factory reset does not change your rooted status. As far as the Google Apps not working...it's most likely due to a modded hosts file. Either from an ad blocking program, or the Freedom Play Store patcher. Re-root and delete the hosts file in /system/etc and reboot.

Like I said, you just need to install the SuperSU app. The binary has to already still be in /system/bin or /system/xbin, whereever that one installs it. So once you install the companion app, it should recognize that the binary is installed and provide you with root access again.
