Try restart your phone 3 or 4 times. If that didn't work perform Wipe data/Factory reset, foemat cache from Recovery menu then set APN points manualy.
If none will be working try to download another stock firmware for your region. I recommend using Samfirm from XDA for this.

GT-I8160 can't access Play Store

for two factor verification, I always carry a second, older phone with me.
When my Galaxy S2 was physically destroyed, I remembered an old Gingerbread Ace 2 I still had lying around somewhere.

Years ago I got it on a data plan where I rented it, then would give it back.
When it was in use , I had rooted it; when I thought I would have to give it back, I unrooted, got rid of the triangle - and was told the provider didn't want it back, after all.

Now, I unearthed it, put in a SIM, and have a useable phone again.

BUT I decided to install a few apps that should work on it - and was told "wrong Password" by the Play store.

I tried everything I could think of (including typing the password into the Messaging app, then copy/pasting it into the login field, and briefly changing my password through my "daily driver" to 0987654321234567890).

No success "wrong password".

Has anyone any idea what the possible reason might be, and maybe even a solution?

I have just rooted the phone again (after seeing there are actually JB ROMs for this old dear), and everything works, except the Google login.

Problem solved though not explained: for some inscrutable reason the Ace2 with that ROM could only enter 15 character passwords into the Google login - mine were longer; This problem no longer exists.

Things got worse...
When I saw that CM12.1 is available for this phone - with all the myriad security patches since Gingerbread - I made a Nandroid backup and installed the latest version of cm.
"No SIM"!
I tried out the other two versions of cm 12.1 I could find - "No SIM"!

So, with a sigh, I restored my Nandroid backup - and got into a boot loop!

I am currently downloading a stock ROM from Sammobile, but would really hate to have to reinstall Kies on my PC.
Are there any other CustomROMs still available for the Ace2/GT-I8160 that I simply haven't found?


Further reading showed that I only needed to install Kies for the Samsung drivers and could then uninstall it again; Odin worked very well to bring my Ace2 up from Gingerbread to Jellybean (I think - 4.1.2, anyhow)
Now I'll root again, and leave the CustomROMs for this device alone.
