Hello,

Without any reason my google store is showing like this:




Everything is showing with that horrible black background and I have run out of ideas to fix this.
I have flashed new rom, restored backups, clear market settings, etc etc but always endup showing as is.
What can it be or does anyone make a clue to solve this?

Thanks

so looks like its happening with all roms.
I have tried several versions, by clean install and restoring backups and the issues is always there so I presume that Google has change something in the store that is conflicting with the roms of this phone....

I downloaded and installed/replace the play store by an older version (4.6.16) and look like it solved the issue.

not that looks like a misbehaviour, as it clear looks bad, therefore I don't think that is something official.
I believe its a conflict with our phone or roms.

For me now work with version 4.6.16
I solved it in this way
1 With root browser I saved the file /system/app/Phonesky.ak in sdcard
2 With titanium backup I uninstalled version 4.8.20 (Phonesky is deleted)
3 I restored Phonesky.apk in /system/app,
4 I installed version 4.6.6

now works with all the correct icons

you ddin't need to do all that. Just donwload an older version of Play Store and instl it normally and this replaces the version you had installed. Was what I did....

So the conflict is between the newest version of PlayStore and our phones/roms

If I do not do as indicated, it install automatically the version 4.8.20.

The normal installation of 4.6.16 fails, I must first uninstall the newest version 4.8.20

It does not work after a while upgrade automatically to 4.8.20
To resolve this I moved the apk com.android.vending-1.apk in /system/app and changed the permissions to read-only.
For now it seems to work
