I've been running CM9 Alpha 2 for over a month with no problems. Shortly after Google upgraded their Market to Play it stopped working. I can run Play but it immediately gives me "Server Error". I can hit Retry all day and nothing helps.

Sooo, I upgraded to the latest nightly (3-29-2012) and that didn't help. My device was pretty cluttered so I removed Android and need a complete hard reset of webOS. SD folder looked nice and uncluttered.

Then I grabbed the latest nightly again, flashed it, installed gapps (gapps-ics-20120304-signed.zip) and still the same problem. Market says "Server Error".

Anyone else with this problem? Ideas? I did a search here but no dice.

Try this:

clear cache
clear dalvik
flash the 3-17 gaps from here http://goo-inside.me/gapps

These are the latest and have been working fine for me.

Did just this a few min ago, and I'm still also getting Server Error or Connection Timeout. Just tried Play Store on my DX running ICS (gummy) and I got the same error.

On both devices I've;

cleared Cache and Data for Play Store
rebooted, wiped Cache and Dalvik
reinstalled 3/17 gapps

No Luck.

EDIT: Now it is halfway working on both devices again. Shows the main tiles once you open Play Store, but shows a blank area where "My Apps" should be once I click on the arrow.

Mine is working, but when I first tried to open it I got a error saying Play has stopped working. So I opened it again and it worked. Do you think that Play is having issues? I know Googles has been having some issues recently with play.

It is posted on the other forum also with different devices. So that leads me to believe that it is a Google issue. But updating to the most recent Gapps is a good idea.

Wow, glad to see it's not just me. Jeez, I've done everything. Tried Market Enabler. No dice. Tried to use Titanium Backup's Market Fix but ironically you need to be a donator (which I am) which requires market access... facepalm.

I would still flash the latest Gapps just to be up to date. facepalm... Lol. Market fix almost puts you in a cycle of not being able to fix it...

See my first post. I have latest gapps.

Going to try going back to CM9 Alpha 2 with gapps-ics-20120215-signed... it worked before.
Edit: I used ACMEUninstaller to remove Android then reinstalled the aforementioned. Still getting a 'Server error' msg. I'm at a complete loss.

Honestly guys, I think it's just a google server issue.
