Cannot establish background data when creating a Google account.

0 votes

I'm creating a Google account, but it says "can't establish background data". So how is it? I try to create an account on computer, then log in to my phone but everything's still the same.

Please install RootExplorer or any other application that can access root and delete the following folder: /data/data/com.android.providers.settings. Restart your phone then add a Google account. This should help.
