Google Play Store w/out sim card?
So I recently picked up a cappy (SGH-i897) as a backup device.
Quickly realized it takes a normal sized sim instead of the one I've got in my GS3 (also ATT), so I have sim adapters coming.
I rooted using the corn kernal and clockwork recovery. SU is installed
Then I moved on to a different ROM -
First I wiped everything - cache, dalvik cache, full factory wipe, batt stats -
I flashed CM10 and the corresponding GApps from goo.im
No Play Store no Google anything I"m used to seeing on my GS3 with cm and gapps flashed-
So I wanted 10.1 anyway and I thought there was a possibility something went wrong with gapps -
I flashed cm 10.1 and the matching gapps again
Again still no play store - even if i manually install the play store (dl the .apk and install on the phone) it loads up and crashes instantly
Tried clearing the app's cache and clearing the app;s data - it just does the same thing - it pops up on the screen for a sec and dies
So my big ? is - Is this problem linked to me not having a sim card in the phone? Will the play store only work if you have one?
Any help is appreciated...
edit - problem solved
the folk on xda ponited me to the fact that the order you flash thing is makes a difference -
i was flashing gapps first - you have to flash your rom first and gapps last in order for things to work correctly
just wanted to post up in case anyone else read this and wondered....
