Can you download games such as angry birds without google? Is there a manual way to get them on? I'd rather not open an account if I don't have to.

Once working, I changed that browser setting back to "Default" (just because ) as well as disable Android "Automatic Updates" too, as that consumes batteries unnecessarily.

This probably worked because underneath the covers, the Google Username/Password authentication step probably inherits the "User-Agent" setting of the stock web browser when it sends your information over to Google, and who knows that is for the "Default" settings (... perhaps something unrecognizable to Google).

I hope this helps you or someone else.
Thank you so much for the Google Play info, especially to Jenny777 and nyceyes. I NEVER would have figured out the "User Agent" switch myself! One additional question, though: I'd like to disable the Android automatic updates as you suggest, but haven't found the right menu item for that. Can you advise?

Thanks again.

This needs to be addressed for the most recent firmware update. 4.41, I believe. I'm getting a strange error message:

Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server.
This could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call Customer Care.

I have tried it with two different gmail accounts; one is connected to my phone already (I'm unsure if this is relevant) and the other is a throwaway. I also attempted to create a new account, this failed as well.

I tried the aforementioned "default browser settings>user agent>defaults changed to froyo" technique. No luck. The only thing that changed is that now a pop-up notification tells me that YouTube has stopped unexpectedly (which I had side-loaded beforehand).

I also tried installing the latest version (4.4.21) of the Google Play Store after all of this. The Z2 rejected the .apk (code: -104).

I know it's an old player now, but I'm sure others are hitting these same issues too. Any feedback would be very appreciated.

I'm having the same problem as the previous poster. I have firmware 4.41 and my Cowon Z2 says "can't establish a reliable data connection to the server".

I did all the steps as described even changed the default setting in normal browser to froyo.

Can anyone help?
