Default I finally rooted my T-Mobile SGH-T679 2.3.6.

Seven screens of apps have been reduced to two and a half. But ‘Play Store’ will not open. The icon is there and when pressed it starts loading then quits and shows apps screen. When Play Store site is open on the PC it shows my installed apps and even if I download a new app it shows as “installed” but it didn’t. Something is blocking Play Store. I have tried Googling with the question but without success.

Also my email app is on the screen but when tapped this pops up;

SORRY! Email stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Force close.
This notice appears off and on during the day for several days.

Most apps work okay but I am puzzled by those that don’t.


What could be causing this?

Default how to get your playstore back etc.

I am far from an expert on this, but here is a quick possible fix. Boot into recovery. Scroll down to Advanced and select Advanced. Then select Fix Permissions.

You said you rooted. Did you simply root, or install a custom rom and kernel? If you installed a custom ROM and kernel you will likely need to install a new, special gapps for the playstore and other basic system apps to work. Lots of info on that on the xda forum for the exhibit ii phone.

But first, try reboot to recovery, Advanced, Fix Permissions.

Good luck and report back with results.

When I go into recovery and press the lower left I get a list of programs/apps but there isn't any "Advanced." In fact if I highlight a list item and press 'home' it just goes back to the list and it doesn't act.

Obviously I'm doing something wrong. I still get the pop-up 'email stopped unexpectedly.' I know that!

Do you have ClockworkMod Recovery on your phone? If so, turn off phone. Depress the VOLUME UP key and Power key simultaneously. After white SAMSUNG word appears, release the keys. It should boot into Clockwork Mod Recovery and you will see very small words in blue on a black screen. Scroll down to ADVANCED using the volume down key. Select ADVANCED by pressing the little house-shaped HOME icon at the very bottom of your screen. Then scroll to Fix Permissions and select it by hitting the house-shaped HOME icon.

I'm thinking maybe you don't have Clockwork Mod recovery if that's not what you're seeing. Please describe more.

I do have cwm.6012.t679 on the internal card. Along with Titanium Pro, Busybox, ROM Toolbox lite, Superuser.


When pressing Vol up and power the screen continues to flash ‘Samsung” and no Recovery. Just once, in many attempts, did Recovery appear but it quickly showed words in yellow then booted.


In Rom Toolbox Lite I can click on Apps Manager (all apps) the list includes Google Play Store and email and one of the choices is “Fix Permissions” when pressed there is a buzz as if it did something (repair?) but it didn’t.


There is a method to “Factory Data Reset” but what does this mean? Will all data be erased and reset to factory, or back to T-Mobile bloat apps that would delete the root?


I appreciate your help. Since your replies I have been trying this and trying that but it appears my cell has programmed itself and refuses to change! Some apps work and some don’t.

This is how to root. I don't own this device anymore but had two (gf and I). Here's how to root...How to root!

Here's some light reading on it. Along with some roms.... Samsung Exhibit 2 4G: All Things Root Guide

BTW the op does not have cwm. Just a file on his sdcard. Called cwm. (From what I gathered). You all can benefit from the information I just gave ya.

@OP try to get cwm working in the second link there's another link for clockwork mod recovery. Hit it up and get cwm working. Than flash a new rom. (Being sure to follow all steps outlined in rom thread). This WILL fix your issues.
