EDIT: I missed this bit:
I tried downloading an Google Play APK for 4.0.4 and instaling (trying with and without step 6 in the Super Script)
Thats weird. Where did you get the play apk from? Keep in mind this is still very early days for this script.
You can try this in the exact order:
- Re-run step 5.
- After factory restore, sign into Google Play. You will probably be missing apps like facebook etc, if not, its fine, dont run step 6. If you are, DONT clear cache or data yet.
- Move straight on to Step 6.
- Clear cache and data as step 6 instructs.
- REBOOT AGAIN
- Try Google Play again. You shouldn't need to sign in, just re-accept the agreement.
Let me know how you go!
Ok, so taking your advice I started from scratch and I keep running into issues. So with that being said (and knowing its about 99% probably my fault) I'll just list my step by step actions using (summarized).
Step 1. Flash to stock 4.0.4 and change language (goes perfectly).
Step 2. Allow dev options and open SuperScript (Still good)
Step 3. Checked connectivity, backed up files, and Disabled unnecessary services (w/ Hard reset)
Step 4. Tested connection again, Removed bloatware (even though it says "rm failed for..." on each one)
Step 5. Checked Play store still in app drawer (it is).
Step 6. Ran step 5 (Update framework and Gapps w/Factory reset)
Step 7. Phone reboots, Selected apex launcher, and Play Store is gone.
Step 8. Run "Repair Google Play" but no data/cache can be removed due to it not being listed under apps in settings.
Now, from my understanding the play store should be on the phone after following these steps. So I'm just trying to see what I'm doing wrong -_-' any tips?
P.S. Are you able to get FPSe through the market after this is fixed? Psx4Droid is nice but some games I like to use cheats
My friend said he could get Facebook and the other market apps but FPSe said it was not compatible on his market anyway.
