    i had recently updated the google apps like maps,google play services, google play games along with other random apps like imo, peel smart remote, messenger etc . i was on a whatsapp call when i was switching from WiFi network to mobile data . No sooner i did that, the google services stopped working and the phone restarted. once it was in, the maps stopped working. i kept getting the message "unfortunately google services stopped working " a couple of times.
    Now even the google play app is missing from the app drawer and also the google account does not seem to sync.
    i have encountered the same issue before and i had to do a hard reset along with clearing the cache in recovery mode to fix it.(i lost my root privileges in that process. )
    kindly assist

    Welcome to Android Central! Did you already try wiping the cache this time?

    You can also try going to Settings>Accounts​, removing your Google account, then adding it back again.

    Unfortunately, it sounds more like corrupted firmware or a hardware failure. Are you able to boot into Recovery any more? Or how about Download Mode, in order to reinstall the firmware? http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...interface.html

    i was not able to boot in any mode
    the phone is just blank . the screen does not even switch on
    i had tried this method mentioned here
    Windows Instructions
    Download win32diskimager
    Download your debrick image
    Unzip both items and run win32diskimager
    Run win32diskimager
    browse for your extracted debrick image
    Select your microSD in the dropdown box
    Click write

    but now i get the error FLASH WRITE FAILURE ddi : mmc_read failed

    Sorry, but I think the phone is dead. Let's see if anyone else has any ideas.
