Dear all,

I sincerely seek help into my rooted device, SM-T211.
It was working fine until today, which I found out that the google play store is not working. It was represented as loading but not connected. When I retry, nothing works. Thus I looked online and they asked me to clear the cache and data at setting > apps.
I did but it didn't work for me...
Another solution arises and suggest me to factory reset.
Being a awful noob I reset it.
So the device woke up WITHOUT A KEYBOARD. (I deleted it...)
So I connected it to the computer and downloaded swiftkey. At least I've a keyboard now!
BUT. Under settings > add account > google is not working. not loading not prompting me to add account. Like the selection was not available.
Yes, the google play store is still not working.
Although I'm able to download the games and apps by other means but not having my account logged on means I cannot purchase anything from the store, not even using Freedom.

This is so bad, please help me!
I'm suspecting that I might delete an important system app of google or some sort...
But I can't seem to restore it or google a list of apk/system files that I need. My device is SM-T211.
I'm desperately finding answers on google but nothing showed up :'(
I'm sorry that I'm a noob but still want to root my device... (I don't even know whats flashing ROM all that... omg help)

Please help me through this tide.
Thank you very much in advance!!

Well, I recently find out I had the same problem as you, and im glad I found this so I wont post a new thread again... I already did deleting the cache even the data and I dont care If I deleted it... and also try reinstalling it... delete the account , and when I add a existing account then fill up the forms then click next, and it says " cant establish a reliable connection to the server" .. even though im fully connected to our wifi.. so pls. Anyone whats the problem with the paly store? And also im using droidwall, but ofcourse I enable playstore and other google services... any other way than try factory reset?

Omygod! Hello, its me again.. I actually solved it
So if you please can you try to search a app in google search then click the link and select browser rather than selecting the play store .. then it will open a new tab and it must be looks like this:
Then if you have the same problem like mine...
To solve this, make sure you have the current date and time set, then wahla! It solved mine, I really dont notice that my date and time was wrong !

Hey there! Thanks a lot for your help and advice and I tried it out, it worked! But unfortunately I wasn't able to find the correct file for this device... I ended up choosing the one for my country because the website don't have the baseband version of this device...
My device baseband version is T211XXAMFN

Was working well until again the connection failed at play store again... I think is device is beyond hope now T. T :'(

Hello! I finally figured it out! At first it was not working even clearing the cache, data and even force stopped the Google play store. But after using the root Explorer I was able to use play store by going into root Explorer > etc > host and add a # to the ip address... I still want to thank you all for helping me!
