**ROOT IS REQUIRED!**

Here is a short fix for the No Connection Error on play store. It may not work on all devices.

1. Download Total Commander from Play Store or HERE.
2. Install it in your Device.
3. Open Total Commander and goto Root of System. (/ )
4. Open the etc folder.
5. Find the file named "hosts", and hold it for 3 seconds. Choose edit file, and choose Total Commander Text Editor if prompted.
6. Delete everything and paste this at the first line: " 127.0.0.1 localhost". Copy it exactly, dont modify anything.
7. Save the file and overwrite if needed.

Downloads:
Total Commander (Root file explorer I am using): http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23060877489996531

Once again feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I am doing anything wrong.

Please leave a "Thanks!" if it helped!

uh...

Okay. But what do we do if we actually have the problem you're talking about? Can't download an app from the play store when the play store won't connect.

Mine doesn't show a second line!

Following the instructions, I found the folder and file, but only one line of info was shown, localhost, and its ip which I'm assuming is my WiFi router(?)

Should I copy your example line exactly? What does the hash do anyway?

Please and thanks! I just set myself up with cyanogenmod 10 on the HTC sensation and this has been bugging me...

Another way is to just delete the "hosts" file and reboot the device when it turns on again just open google play and choose your google account.

Hope I Helped ;)

Thanks for this useful post. But what to do when one cannot actually download anything from the play store? My Play store shuts down with an error whenever I attempt to download something. Even the browser replicates the exact same problem.

I will get the apk uploaded for you guys. Sit back.

Sorry for not realising the fact that people can't download. My file manager was included in the ROM. Sorry.
