I have reactivated the play store as well as all Google apps several times after updating the OS to 2.0 on my device. I also updated the play store app to the latest version. It seems that each time Boox Max2 shuts down Google is deactivated. I can sign in again but have to do it for the play store, gmail, docs, etc. individually each time. I read an article that Google is gradually shutting out makers of e-ink devices. Unless Onyx comes up with a fix we may all be out of luck with the play store and all Google provided apps and services. In that case the value of an expensive tablet would be nearly nil.
I’d be thrilled if there is some simple work around I can’t find. Any ideas or people who have different experiences?
UPDATE: I tried this and so far it works: Settings/Application/GSF ID (bottom of the page). It says to press to register device to your google account. I did this and after a reboot I am still logged in to my google apps. I’m hoping this solved the post-update problem I experienced.
UPDATE 2: well, the fix lasted for a day and then the tablet signed itself out of Google again, saying I needed to enable Google Play I order to use their apps. I did and then had to sign back into gmail again. It had forgotten my email address and password. What a bother.
UPDATE 3: after a factory reset and careful one-by-one installation of apps I seem to have eliminated the problem. I’d guess it was any app called Rotation Control, though that’s just a guess.
UPDATE 4: MAX2 now signs itself out occasionally. I wrote to Onyx and they replied within hours. They say a soon to be released update called 2.01 will fix the issue with Google.
