Issue with Play Store on Custom Rom - Solved

    I have the Huawei Y560-U02 running KitKat 4.4.2

    I recently found several custom ROMS ported for this device.

    Some of them are 4.4.2 and some are 4.4.4. I did not find any other versions and all are CyanogenMod 11 (CM11) except for one that is 4.4.2 so not important here.

    I installed Play store with all google apps on each one. The Play Store worked normally on the 4.4.2 versions but not on the 4.4.4 versions.

    The google apps worked more or less on the 4.4.4 but the Play store keeps giving an error with the code df-dferh-01.

    I have been trying to resolve it for 3 days so far by trying many tips found online. Tips such as clearing cache and resting the device to factory settings.

    There was also a tip to edit the hosts file with the below edit. But it did not work either. I found in another video with another IP address that did not work either. I tried to find other IPs for Play store but did not manage to find any.

    # android.clients.google.com

    I need to use the 4.4.4 or higher because all the firewalls that I tried on the 4.4.2 versions did not work but they work fine one 4.4.2 .

    Honestly, KitKat is so far behind Android 11, I'd actually expect it to be giving problems at this point. The other thing is that your gapps PKG could be corrupt but the fact that it works fine on 4.4.2 , makes me wonder..

    Ok, I tried several versions of Gapps for Ktkat but all seem to have worked the same on 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 more or less.

    Can someone give me tips to try.

    I have an app called "Connection List Free" link is below. I use it to see all the active connections that the phone is using. For play store it would sometimes say established then goes to closed. I am not currently using any firewall.


    Is there an app that can do proper internet testing.

    I have some apps that do not seem to connect at all such as FireVPN, when I use it on this phone it does not find any servers to connect to.

    So the problem might be related to networking.

    One of the ROMs had a fix for hotspot but the link is no longer valid, so it is possible that might resolve this issue.

    Gapps worked normally after re-installing the custom ROM a few times.

    So this thread is closed.
