    On seeing an upgrade flashing, I upgraded my Sony Tablet s to Android 4 about a week ago. Since then Google Play (android Market) has stopped working. A message simple flashes " Unfortunately, Google Play has stopped working".
    anyone faced similar problems??? Solutions?

    Welcome to the forum

    Try this, go to settings - apps - all and find the Google Play Store app. Tap on it and tell it to clear cache then force stop and restart your tablet.

    This is what I did:

    Just head over to your tablet settings, select apps and choose the google play store app. From there you`ll be able to uninstall the app. You`ll notice that the google play store will go back to the original factory version. Open the store and you`ll be prompted to upgrade. Do so and you`ll. Have your store back.

    I am getting the 'stopped error' tried everything re-installing - clearing accounts - even reset my tablet back to the factory settings. I have an Ainol Elf 2, just got it this week & never managed to get the Google Play to fully work. I can get into the play store but when I try to install I get the error message. The message then appears everytime I open the play store, the only way I can stop the error message is to stop the app then clear the data. Then I try again but the same happens once I try to install.

    I did have the same error message with the YouTube app but removing it & re-installing fixed it. Trying different versions of the Play app but it seems to then try to update & fails. Only way I have managed to get apps on my tablet is to find them elsewhere & download the APK. Is there anyway I can download the apps from the Play store without installing???

    I frequently find an app I want on the Play Store using a browser and tell it to install then pick the device and it installs. That doesn't solve the problem but should allow you to install apps without using the Play App.

    I download the firmware update Aggro0626-Elf2-01B & everything is working fine now. After doing the factory reset it came back on with Google Play installed.

    Hi . I bought a Mediacom SmartPad 722i yesterday and today
    I struggled all the afternoon to get the darn app working ,
    until I found this link : Connectivity requirements to use Google Play - Google Play Help .
    I would've never thought about that in my life .
    I changed my router settings to open TCP and UDP 5228 ports for the device , and
    now Google Play works .
    Hey, it just worked for me .
    Hope this helps .
    Jack

    I am replying to myself because I was not able to edit my post.
    Just forgot to tell that I installed Google Play Store version is 3.9.17 .
