    This also works to fix the issue where the 3g/4 g icon stays gray. Blue now!!!

    works, do remember to restart if you see “server error”. and, go to accounts to unsync and resync.

    @ Tim Try this : reboot your phone to recovery mode CWM. 1) >Wipe cache partition 2)
    mounts and storage > Format cash. and reboot system, should work.

    Thanks a lot. It worked like charm. By the way, I had to reboot because play store was bringing up server error, when I tried to launch it.

    Completely works on rooted Hp Touchpad running CM7. Thanks, apprechiate the help. Before reading this I kept uninstalling/reinstalling rom, but this error message would eventually occur on Google Play Store. After clearing data from google framework , I also went to settings>accounts&sync>unsynced then synced google mail, then rebooted, because I read that as well somewhere and also wanted to make sure this worked.

    They forgot to mention that you have clear data for Google Play Store also. After you clear the data for both, reboot your phone and you should be fine.

    Thanks. It worked for me. I restored my Galaxy note from ICS to GB and it was giving me this error. Clearing data helped me get rid of this error. THANKS once again.

    @John – If you can’t find the framework program, that’s the problem you need to deal with first. Your device likely didn’t come with Google Apps integrated. Find an APK installer for the framework that’s compatible and install it.

  10. John says

    And I can´t even find the framework program. It is not listed in the “all” section.

  11. Tim says

    Ok, so I did that, re-added my credentials. Restarted, uninstalled updates. It might just be the rom, the AT&T leaked ICS for the Galaxy note. But yeah, it’s frustrating. If you have any other good ideas let me know. Thanks
