[Q] Serious Google Play Store Issues
I'm going to try and be as detailed as possible here so bear with me. So a few days ago I got my first android device, a refurbished Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Everything was working fine when I first got the device (including the google play store). I did a lot of research and ended up following this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1880010
to root and install CWM on the device. Cool right, everything still works (including the google play store). Next I decided I wanted to try out a custom ROM so I followed http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2202854
in order to install the PAC-ROM. Everything was working fine and I was really loving the new UI but this is when **** hits the fan. The google play store stopped showing me apps and when I could get one to show up through a search I was presented with a lovely "This item isn't available in this country". I followed some advice on XDA forums saying to clear the play store data/cache and reboot (tried this about 30 times). Nothing. Reset app preferences and clear all data/cache again. Nothing. Remove and re-add my google account. Nothing. Remove google account, reset everything, reboot, and add a new google account. NOTHING. At this point I'm getting frustrated so I decide to just do a factory reset and reinstall STOCK JB 4.1.1. NON-rooted following these steps http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2283598
. NOTHING! When I open the play store I am presented an empty menu with a bunch of categories that have nothing in them. If I search for major apps like "Facebook" I can get to the app page but it says "This item isn't available in your country". I've tried about 10 google accounts now and to no avail. What's really weird is that I can't see the google play store on my Desktop computer either (both on the same wifi), its also a blank menu and If I search for a major app it shows me a few apps and most of them are in Chinese? What. The. ****. So, any ideas?
