  1. Hi .. after this upgrade Google Play does not work. I can get to the Main screen. But when I search for a App I get “No connections [RETRY]“.

    Also Pulse is not refreshing. It is stuck with news from pre-upgrade.

    I can get to other sites through Browser (stock).
    I can get to other sites using Dolphin
    I can push an app from http://play.google.com

    but the Google Play is not working … wonder why.

    I should not have upgraded the firmware …
