Google Play Downloads Stuck

Hi All,

I have a Vega that has been happily running R8 for the past year without any problem. Everything was running smooth until yesterday when trying to fetch updates for an app from Google Play Store I noticed that the download would get 'stuck' (no progress made whatsoever). This happens to any app that I try to download from Play Store, on the other hand downloading a .apk file straight from the browser works just fine. I have tried clearing Play Store's cached data to no avail. I also tried using another Google account but that didn't work either. I even tried the VegaCream ROM (which is amazing btw) but Play Store app downloads still get stuck!

Has anyone here experienced something like this? Any solutions?

Cheers,

tkgsmph

edit: not sure if this is a related issue but I also noticed that the Youtube app won't start playing/buffering videos

Have you tried deleting the market/playstore updates.

Go to settings, Apps, All, google playstore or market (whatever it is), Force stop, clear data, uninstall updates.

Now go to the apps draw and open the market (it will be market now), it will update to playstore when you open it and hopefully work correctly.

Do the same thing for youtube.

Good luck

Hi Richard,

I tried your suggestion, but unfortunately the problem still persists. Upon uninstalling the Play Store update it reverted back to VegaCream's factory version 3.5.16 and got upgraded back up to 3.5.19 when running it again but app downloads still get stuck. The strange thing is that the problem carried on even after upgrading from R8 to VegaCream.

Did you boot to recovery and wipe everything before flashing Vegacream? If not boot recovery and wipe, then reflash vegacream.

Wipe data, system,boot, cache, cashe partition and dalvik cache, power off, back button/power button thing, NVflash Vegacream beta 3.

Yes, I went with the nvflash route. I finally found out the cause after much messing around trying to extract an APK from Play Store. Using the APK downloader extension for Chrome apparently Google is forwarding my APK download request to a regional mirror that seems to be down. With ProxyDroid and a proxy server from another country I can manage to download apps from the Play Store like usual.

Anyway thanks for the advice Richard!
