    I always update to the newest nightly, and I recently installed the camera patch onto my CM9 Touchpad. While from day one I occasionally got the message: "unfortunately, google play services has stopped.", I get them more often now. Any hints on how to make it go away?

    The usual fix for Google Play Store is to find it in Settings... applications, uninstall updates, clear the cache and data.

    I suspect the same advice could be used for Google Play Services.

    Did you clear the Dalvik cache and format the cache partition when you installed?

    Did you install the correct (latest) version of gApps?

    boot into recovery (CWM or TWRP on the moboot menu at startup).

    I'd clear both caches (Cache/Dalvik cache).

    CWM: format cache partition. Advanced: format Dalvik cache (Volume up/down selects item, home button does the highlighted item and power goes back to the previous menu)

    TWRP: Wipe: Cache, Dalvik Cache.

    removed the "google play services" app and everything is fine. interesting enough, it reinstalled itself silently, and now it no longer dies...

    It's been over 3 years since this thread but I have the same problem today. Unfortunately, my nook HD+ rooted with N2A software to Android 4.4 does not offer option to uninstall Google Play Services. Any other ideas?
