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?

Default for recent firmwares

Hi there
Thanks for the tip !
it worked but I had to sneak a little, due to the recent Z2 and last firmware version.

first you will need to setup the Google login service APK
which will let you add your google account

then you can setup the vending and market APK
but you need to replace the framework by a more recent

then it works.

I dont know if play store does update by itself, does it

where can I send the APK I used so they can be downloadable in my post ?


thanks for all

Welcome to ABI

From what I can gather you seem to have the workaround that people are looking for. If you list your exact steps others can give it a try and see if it works for them.

I get most of what you're saying except the part about replacing the framework. Can you clear that up and provide a source for the files needed?

You can upload whatever files they need to a hosting site like Dropbox or Mediafire and post a link to them here. As long as they aren't copyrighted files or apks people do that to get others the files they need all the time.

I am glad if it can help others;
pretty surprised that cowon does not update to a more recent android...

my main purpose was to have deezer working on the Z2
for which I was in need to add a google account first.

since the firmware "4.43 class A" (default instal on my device)
is no longer offering to add a any google account (only exchange account -> which is no longer supported by google server)
I had to install the login service apk first
->http://we.tl/hcc8Elhdx9

I did reset my device to factory settings before doing anything.

did instal the login service apk
then went to settings / account and sync / add my google account

the next step was to setup the market.
I did download the package from here, but the framework apk was not supported (probably too old)
so I did download a recent framework
-> http://we.tl/4m3n4sffU4

copied the three apk (framework / vending / market)
installed them and it worked.
so I guess it will work for others too.

I remmember i had to do at least one reboot to get it work,
I recommand that you reboot at each step

I was then able to download deezer and there is my other problem
(dont know if i am in the right topic to talk about deezer)

deezer requests the google play services apk to work.
play store offered me to install that service
I can start and use deezer, but a message comes telling that google services is not supported by my device...
I choose to uninstall G play services.
deezer still works

the only point is that the first song starts, after a few seconds
the next song plays, covering the first one (still playing)

Also, I dont know if I should set play store not to update apks automatically, since recent versions may not work...
or if I should simply remove play store.

sorry for the long message, I hope my english is understandable.

Which link did you use. I had to reset my Z2 and now I can't get the play store to recognize my account. The links above are no longer working so I have no idea how to get this working again. Thanks for any help you can provide

Mike
