WARNING: YOU MAY LOSE ALL YOUR DATA BY DOING THIS.

Issues:

- Account sync OFF permanently with the message: "Sync is currently experiencing problems".

- Signing in Google Apps fails showing message: "Can't establish a reliable connection to the server"

Possible Cause:

- system file named 'hosts' (/etc/hosts) points to a Google server that changed IP, thus blocking access to Apps.

Possible Solution:

- edit 'hosts' file (/etc/hosts) deleting or commenting (adding a # at the beginning) the old line

I have a Samsung Galaxy S AnyCall M110S with GFAN WF07 SP 8 XDA Version i tested it and it worked...

It may be work on any android device.

Please do it at your own risk.

How to do it:

METHOD 1

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: www.ghisler.com/android.htm

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 74.125.93.113 android.clients.google.com.

4.- SAVED

Edited file should look like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost

#74.125.93.113 android.clients.google.com

remember: based on my own observation it should be look like this:

127.0.0.1(just one space)localhost

#74.125.93.113(just one space)android.clients.google.com

5.- Turn OFF your device.

6.- Got it on Recovery Mode

7.- Factory reset, wipe data.

8. Reboot your device.

9. Once the phone reboots, input your google account information when the phone asks for it.

10.- Sync to your account and contacts

METHOD 2:

1. Make sure you have a ROOT ACCESS on your Device.

2. Install Root Explorer, Run App, Grant SU Access.

3. Browse root / etc... at the top of your screen you will see mount R/O and mount R/W...

4.Tap mount R/W

5.Look for host file, long press it and open with text editor.

6. just Add # (pound sign) on the first number.

like this:

#74.125.93.113(just one space)android.clients.google.com

SAVE IT and Reboot.

Now you can connect to Google Play very well.
