Usually fixing this error might be easier than you think as a simple logout from the Google Play could do the trick and solve this issue.

Also, please try and clear the cache of the Google Play application in the Settings menu. After this operation, please restart your device.

I also had the infamous "error 495" on my Samsung Galaxy S2 running Android 4.0.4. I searched for 4 or 5 hours online, cleared my app cache, un-updated Google Play (it didn’t work and completely uninstalled it; fortunately, it reinstalled without a problem), stopped the Play service, etc etc etc and rebooted about 12 times. After reading some forums, it seemed that the time of the device and the network could have played a role. Indeed, it might have stopped working after I left the US to Europe and now India.

What was really weird is that some apps would install or update but most would not. The green bar would move and move but without any progress or indication of what was happening.

I also lost some time because my system partition is almost full and I thought it was that. It turns out it's close to impossible to remove anything in it (and is it possible/desirable?)

The only way I found to manage to start updating apps is to make it believe that it was in the US... I set the time to US EST, and connected to a US VPN. It started updating one of my apps, albeit so slowly that the VPN cut before it could finish... I need to try again with a paid VPN… :(

Why would my phone not update when I'm outside the country? Is it Google or AT&T? Is there any setting that I can change? What are the workarounds? Connecting to the VPN every time is not very practical...

By the way, and I don’t know if it’s connected or not, my GPS works very poorly abroad – any suggestion?

Problema (codigo de erro 495) download de aplicativos de Play Store


Apagar o seu Google Play Store dados em (Definições - Aplicativos - Todos - Google Play Store - Limpar dados) Apagar dados do Google Services Framework também (nota: isso vai atribuir um novo ID google para o seu dispositivo, como se você tivesse que redefinir o seting de fabrica, ou seja, seus aplicativos do Google pode atuar temporariamente até mais tarde)

Apagar o seu acount Google no dispositivo, reiniciar a máquina e voltar a adicionar a sua nova conta Google em (Configurações - Contas - Adicionar Conta - Conta Google)

Problema downloading apps from Play Store


Delete your Google Play Store data in (Settings - Apps - All - Google Play Store - Clear data)
Delete data from Google Services Framework also (note: this will assign a new google ID to your device,
as if you had factory reset it, meaning your Google apps may temporarily act up afterwards)

Delete your Google acount on the device, reboot your machine and re-add your new Google acount in
(Setings - Acounts - Add Acount - Google acount)

I have had 495 error for months now on samsung note tablet, wifi only. A factory reset allows original apps to load and ok from samsung store, but google play
just starts and continues to try for 15 minutes or better. Talked to samsung and google and they say they never heard of error 495. Tried different google accounts too. So until someone figures this out I will have to play on my ipad piece of ****.
