I look for solutions on various websites, and here is what I found:
-connection to youtube app with google account => it didn't work
-root and delete some file settings => I couldn't make it
-remove the sim card and try to connect to google account without it => it didn't work
-downgrade to Android 1.6 => I want to use apps who couldn't work on that version
That's a real problem, I can't go to the Android Market, Gmail, can't have updates from the market... a pain in the bum!
If somebody has other ideas, that would be awesome
Two-step verification doesn't play well with android google sync.
Turning off 2-step verification
Visit the Using 2-step verification page under your Google Account settings. Sign in with your username, password, and verification code if prompted.
Click Turn off 2-step verification.
A pop-up window will appear to confirm that you want to turn off 2-step verification. Click OK.
Hope this helps.
