Solution: Play Store No Connection Error Worked


Solution: Play Store No Connection Error Worked, Fixed!.
– Account sync OFF permanently with the message: “Sync is currently experiencing problems”.
– Signing in Google Apps fails showing message: “Can’t establish a reliable connection to the server”

Possible Cause:
– system file named ‘hosts’ (/etc/hosts) points to a Google server that changed IP, thus blocking access to Apps.

Possible Solution:
– edit ‘hosts’ file (/etc/hosts) deleting or commenting (adding a # at the beginning) the old line
– The Date and Time also makes sometime issue so correct the date and time of your region.

Note:- Backup all personal data on your phone to make sure you have a copy of your personal data (e.g., contacts, SMS, MMS, Internet settings, Wi-Fi passwords, and the like) in case the procedure in this guide erases such data.

So lets get start:


1.- Root your device (of course)

2.- Editing the file
You will need a proper editor
On your device open your browser and go to:
Download and Install Total Commander for Android… and open it

3.- Browse with Total Commander to root/etc
(hint: on the right side of the screen there’s a shortcut to system folder.. look for etc/ and you will find it)
Long tap on “hosts” > edit file > Totalcmd-Editor

Open etc/hosts and edit the file. Just put # before second line of hosts file.

Edited file should look like this: localhost
# (mine) | yours will be different

remember: based on my own observation it should be look like this: (just one space) localhost
# (just one space)

5.- Turn OFF your device.
6.- Got it on Recovery Mode
7.- Factory reset, wipe data.
8. Reboot your device.
9. Once the phone reboots, input your google account information when the phone asks for it.
10.- Sync to your account and contacts


1- Find the file named “hosts”, and hold it for 3 seconds. Choose edit file, and choose Total Commander Text Editor if prompted.
2- Delete everything and paste this at the first line: ” localhost”. Copy it exactly, dont modify anything.
3.  Save the file and overwrite if needed.


This method also worked for many. Just check your phone’s date and time. If it is not correct then correct it and save setting and reboot your phone.


This is the last step you follow if above not works. Simply just delete the “root/etc/hosts” file, delete your account and reboot your phone check date and time. this will work. Just open google play and choose your google account.

Hope I Helped. Now you can connect to Google Play very well. Feel free to suggest your methods and give reply if works…
