[EDIT]FIXED!! Shortly after I posted this question I found forum post that helped me fix this annoying problem. Please do it at your own risk. How to do it: 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: Total Commander - Android Download and Install Total Commander for Android... and open it OR DOWNLOAD BELOW 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 126.96.36.199 android.clients.google.com. 4.- SAVED Edited file should look like this: 127.0.0.1 localhost #188.8.131.52 android.clients.google.com remember: based on my own observation it should be look like this: 127.0.0.1(just one space)localhost #184.108.40.206(just one space)android.clients.google.com 5.- Turn OFF your device. 6. Reboot your device. 7. Once the phone reboots, input your google account information when the phone asks for it. Done! Now you can connect to Google Play!
