[SOLVED] No Google play in Slimkat 4.4.2 build 3.0 stable

I cannot post in the developer forum yet, so I ask here instead:

I have done the installation as usual (full wipe, and also installed slim gapps, the latest release).
For some reason I don't have a Google play in the latest Slimkat.
I cannot setup google account, and Gmail and other google apps refuse to start.

Something strange during first start-up: There was no guide to configure the phone as it normally is. It just went straight to home screen.

I have done full wipe again, and reinstalled everything, but the same issue. No google play.

This is not my first custom rom, I have had previous slim versions installed, and before that a lot of other custom roms, so I think I know how to install everything. Before this version I had the previous beta of slimkat installed.

Any suggestions?

device not supported...
I tried to open some other google apps, as well as the browser. Either they close directly, or show a message that my device is not supported by google play services.

playstore
Glad you got the playstore working again . When I have had those kinds of problems sometimes reloading the most current versioin of Google Apps will help too.
