post a reply on here if works :)
Here is what I did. I went to: phone settings> Applications> Manage Applications> All tab> clicked on gPlay Store> force stop> clear data> uninstall update> clear data.

Then, I installed gPlay 3.5.19..still it didn't work (this one didb;t even start to download at all). lol
Worst of all, everytime i run it..google is prompting to update it..and i cant bypass that stupid update..dafuq?!! =="
What should I do? aaarrgh!! @[email protected]

I had this problem. I installed the rom and then i restored data with recovery from an other rom. After that a couldnt install some programs. And i solved it with this. I installed the rom and then i installed titanium and i did the recovery with it. Then all was ok.

Now i only realized that google play will update itself. Sorry for this stupid statement but honestly say Play Store never start update by itself, never prompt me also in my phone...(Don't know what happen ><) and i every time update it using apk file downloaded from another website. Sorry can't help you on this :(

Would it because of my phone bloatware free and using broodkernel?

Worth a try i guess..i'm gonna try that too..
but i'll probably try installing a rom from another region to check how it goes first..

Perhaps the latest one might help.
>> Code: I9001XXKQE (Android 2.3.6) / 2012 June / Region: Baltic

As we are not the only one who facing this strange problem so in my opinion i still think that the main issue came from the Play itself. Correct me if i'm wrong because i'm not expert in android. However, flashing a new rom might be a good try and hope that it solved the problem. Good Luck ! :D

This didn't work too..i flashed rom from another region..then google prompted me to update (as usual)..and after the update, *poof* same nonsense got repeated.."stuck at download" *pfft*
@mrjraider, my mobile data works fine..but for google play, its the same case.

There is definitely something going on..i sent a complaint to Google Play Support for feedback/solutions. I searched, and it seems to be a common problem in there FAQ. lmao

I also tried this recently as suggested by many over the internet.

Open file explorer (need to be rooted), go to:
System> Framework> rename 'framework-res.apk' to 'framework-res.apk.bak' wait for a few FC's then rename it back to 'framework-res.apk'.

This will enable you to re-enter a google account into the system. Some say this worked, but for me it hasn't. Maybe this could work for you too..who knows. (sigh)

Anyways, I just re-flashed the whole rom again..lets hope it works now. :(

Edit: this is so ridiculous, google taking ages to reply. I did everything i could, even re-flashed the rom..and still nothin..dafuq?!! *sigh*

Ok, peepz..i found a temporary workaround for this problem..and it WORKS!! I hope that Google gets a fix for this nonsense..and FAST!! x(

Here is what I did:
1- go to app manager from settings,
2- uninstall the latest version of google play store
3- clear data and cache of google play store
4- install version Google Play Store v3.5.19
5- when you open the market, google will still prompt you to update to the latest version (dont continue, leave it as it is)
6- if you want to update/install the apps do it thru the browser in your phone/computer (it will straight away update in your phone)

Cheers!! ^_^

ok guys i also have send a complain to google, but when you send it they says they work from 8am to 6pm on those complains so we have to wait a little.
For now i have solved the problem by freezing MarketUpdate.apk via titanium backup pro. i think that probably a new update of google play will solve this, so any now and then i will de-frost google play and check!

ok now after a while it just started update by himslf.
in the meanwhile google support team answered me sayng that the problem is that my phone is rooted. so to unroot and do a hard reset! i ansqered that they are just crazy and that i found on an italian forum a person with everything stock and not rooted with the same problem so to do not bullshit me. also if i told them so in realy good manners ;)
then i found another way t stop this and again, for now it is working. with es filemanager i have changed privilege of vending.apk from rw--rw--rw- to r--r--r--
for now it seems like not updating anymore!

what the hell is goin on with this damn google play?!?!? i have managed to preventi it from update yesteray until now, now i opened market to check a thing and it was updated!!! Someone managed to solve this????

I seriously do not think that the problem is related to being rooted or using custom roms..dafuq?!!

So far, my workaround is working well..the only part which i dont like is everytime i have to install/update..i have be connected to the WiFi/data, and update/install manually from the browser in the device/computer.

Now google play website enables updating from the site itself (via "My Android Apps")..so its kinda convenient..but still suck!! xp

Still, am not satisfied with google's services..till now they havent replied any solution for the problem.

This works for me:

1º Install "Root Explorer" (you can use Blackmart or other alternative market)
2º Disable wifi and data
3º Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/Google Play: Unistall Updates
4º With Root Explorer: System/App/MarketUpdater.apk: change permissions to ONLY READ

It would work

EDIT: Sorry, it only work 5 minutes.
