    If you get this message "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server" when you are trying to add a gmail account there is a solution without "Hard Factory reset" :p

    first you must root your phone.

    then you must delete the settings file.



    1. adb remount
    2. adb shell
    3. su
    4. rm /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
    5.restart phone

    this will reset your phone settings without hard factory reset so you can add more gmail accounts. Worked for me. I can not believe that this is happening and the only solution google is offering is to hard factory reset the phone.

    BTW: I did not make this up. The credit goes to thread #16 and #49.

    Issue 3477 - android - HTC Hero - can't sign Gmail account if user skips signing when initially using the phone. - Project Hosting on Google Code


    This is very important and I hope this becomes a sticky.

    For me to get it to work on the latest GB Liberty release I had to try to access the market, than click skip and then click sign in the next time it popped up saying it was required....
