Cloud Search [Q] Problems with google services (hangouts, calendar, Chrome, login error nag)


I just got a new phone (Xperia Z Ultra), but whenever i try to login to my google account, the following happen.

The login works.
Hangouts fail with the following: "Couldnt sign in possible because theres a problem with google account permissions"
Chrome fail with: "Unable to sign in"
Calendar, music widget and information about people doesn't sync.
Google Now fails: "Network error"
Google+ fails: Could not connect to server
Google Play Games just close when opening.

and i keep having a yellow triangle in my notification shade: "Login error for --email--"

I have tried both stock, CM and PA.

I would be really really grateful if someone could come up with a fix!

i usually have to let google services update after flashing and then re-installing the apps from the store.

Did you get the issue resolved? I'm having the same issues on my toroplus, after updating to official 4.3, have tried reflashing back to 4.2, factory reset... but no joy here.

have also tried removing and re-adding my google account

Info 2 possible cause and fix

I had a hunch that it was something to do with my account security settings
Go to your Google account on the web, click on Security on the left menu, and look at the "Connected applications and sites" section (click on "review permissions")

I had an epic number of entries in there - so I started revoking access for a lot of duplicates, including about a dozen entries for Android Login Service (the downside of repeatedly rooting & ROMing, i guess).

1 reboot of my phone later, was asked to re-enter my password, and...

problems gone bye-bye! everything is syncing again.

I hope this helps others.

Had a problem with goggle now on my Galaxy tab. Would crash out on starting. So I uninstalled google now, then reinstalled WITHOUT the latest google now update All worked fine! Applied the latest update, again crashing out.

So uninstalled and re-installed again as above, but without the latest update, all working !
