    I have recently started to have problems with the market on my xperia x10 mini pro. I tryed everything - clearing cache, uninstalling market updates, rebooting my phone like a million times. Nothing worked so i decided to make a factory reset. Now i can't sing in into my google account. I tryed signing in to youtube, rebooting my phone without the SIM card, i made the 2 step verification on my computer for my google account, it generated the password, still nothing. I have no idea what to do. PLEASE HELP!

    First off welcome to the forums!

    If you registered your phone number to your Google account it might mess up signing into your account. So try and remove the number from your account and see if that fixes anything.

    Hope this helps :)

    I have exactly the same problem with Android 2.1. I can't connect to my google account (I'm using the 2 steps verification by the way) after a factory reset. Always the same error message: "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server" I tried it with wifi and 3G and the results were the same.

    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.

    Had this problem after factory reset. Spent hours trying to find out what to do. Eventually found this thread - turned off 2-step verification, worked like a dream. Thanks - I can now start living again.
