    I have a nexus 7 for 2 months now, rooted, and freedom installed. Sometimes play store can't connect anymore. Then I delete the etc/hosts file, reboot and it works again. Last week I did this again, but this time wifi went gray and play store wouldn't connect. Trying to fix this, I accidentally deleted my Google account. I hope you can help me.

    PS: sorry for bad English, I'm from the Netherlands.

    Here's what i would try.
    First, I'd go to the ROM thread to see if others have that problem. If no one has said they do, i would post that i do and see if others do but haven't said so. If a number of people on the same ROM have the same problem the devs will likely fix it.

    Second, I'd make a backup, and then install a different ROM and see if it's fixed.

    If not, third, I'd do a factory reset.

    Solution does not require factory resets wiping data/downloads ect.
    All you need is a rooted phone and about a minute of your time.
    So go to root browser and find a folder ect in that folder you will find a file called hosts open it up and edit second line of the text.It should look like this (2nd line). android.clients.google.com mtalk.google.com
    after that save and reboot your tablet/phone.From what I know every time you restart your router it will go to grey again so just edit that file again if it happens.
