Hello all,

I hate to ask for help but I need to ask in this situation.

Could someone with Play Store working see if Star Wars Commander is available from the Play Store?

Some apps are incompatible with certain devices & I need to know if Star Wars Commander works with Remix OS 2.0

Reasoning: Im going to buy an all in one PC with touchscreen to run Remix. However, I don't have anything to try it on before I buy the PC, & want to ensure Star Wars Commander works before I spend my $.

Thank you in advance someone!

use Aptoide to download whatever is missing from play store due to device identity ;)

you can also download it on any other 'compatible' rooted device using play store and share the apk (installation file) with any of the many apk sharers

Thanks for responding but you did nothing to answer my question. Theres Always a way to install an apk to a device, rooted or not.

I need to know if SWC works natively with Remix OS.

Try resetting remix os and then try again.

So I finally got it working. Took a long time until I realised that I have a VPN turn on (I'm in Australia and don't subscribe to the Gov knowing everything that I do) and changed my Time Zone to Pacific Time BEFORE installing Google Play Services. Then I Clear Data as per instructions and reboot. The first time I reboot and logged into Play Store, everything froze after I enter in my password. I force restart and went back in again and this time, it gave me the error that I was getting initially. I persevered and clear data and reboot again. When I went back in, I went back to my Time Zone and set everything back to Automatic. This time when I went into Play Store, I can download, install, and update fine.

Not sure if this will help anyone else, I set up mine to dual boot Windows and Remix OS. The first couple of times I format the partition as ext3. This last time (when I got it working) I format as ext4.

It worked just fine for me. Thanks dude. Now sor of... off topic. Can I use the same installer in an Android Tablet that comes without Gapps? Theres a way rooting it and then installing manually several google core apps so i know Gapps can run on it. Anyway is a Canaima TR10CS1 with Android 4.4.2

Too unstable

Crashes way too much, I get it it's in alpha stage at the moment but crashing every 5 minutes and forcing me to restart every time I install something.... No fun for me, but I can't wait until they release a stable build

Are you using USB 3.0?

Of course, I tried it with both a 16gb, and a 32gb 3.0 thumbdrive, even tried installing it on my 1 TB usb 3.0 HD, by using UUI to create the bootable usb drive (which seems to work btw). All the same result, too buggy for me......Also had a problem at the beginning, it wasn't booting at all (seemed to be stuck at "Android_"), I couldn't figure out why, until I pulled the plug on one of my monitors and it worked.

    Some ways and fixes by our great members... Try these maybe one of these work for you... Cheers.. Happy Remixing...:good::good:
    Regards: theroyalseeker

    Just fixed my installation...

    1. I made sure my clock was set correctly (maybe not relevant, but still, I've done it).
    2. Installed the GPS from ApkMirror.
    3. I cleared Framework, GPS and Play Store cache/data.
    4. I rebooted my system.
    Worked!


    I had the same error after following the instructions. On another forum there was a suggestion to download 1Mobile Market APK by searching it on google. THis worked for me. After downloading google play services the Google play store was able to download apps. I did need to update Google Play services through the play store but after that my Play store app is working like any other android device. Be careful though there are some virus type apps on the 1Mobile Market app.

    Recap:
    Error when downloading apps through play store.
    Download APK for 1Mobile Market
    Download Google Play Services from 1Moblie Market
    Update Google Play Services through Play store app
    Enjoy downloading any app you want on your device

    ---------------------------------
    Posted from my USB 3.0 Remix OS 2.0 / Running on whatever PC i get my hands on! :cool:



    For everyone having the server error on google play store, here is what you have to do:

    1) Force Stop the following apps:
    a)Play Store
    b)Play Services
    c)Downloads
    d)Service Framework

    2) Clear the data and cache of the following apps:
    a)Play Store
    b)Play Services
    c)Downloads
    d)Service Framework

    3) DO NOT OPEN THE PLAY STORE. REBOOT FIRST.

    If you do the following steps and follow it to the letter, you can start using google play store without any problems. Also, make sure to have the time and date retrieved from the net option selected.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Quick tip for better performance, deactivate sync for all the Google account services you don't use or need. I drastically improved performance on my Remix OS installation by deactiving photo sync, my photo collection is huge! When I stoped it, the USB stick stopped constantly flashing.

    Thanks to all guys for your support... Still the no. 1 viewed thread in remix os for PC.
    A little request, don't just say thanks press thanks...

    i follow all the steps but have error 963 when i would like update google play services or install others apps

    Meanwhile there is a better documentation - see http://forum.xda-developers.com/remix/remix-os/how-to-install-remix-os-virtualbox-to-t3301160.
    You should install the second apk file mentioned there, clear the storage of applications "Google Play Services" and "Google Services Framework", and reboot. In the next step open the browser, search for "Google Play Services" and click "Installation". If you did not do that already, an update should be possible. If the update works fine the problem should be solved.
    If not, please start from the beginning using the documentation linked above.
