  1. I tried running Samsung Galaxy S4 4.3 and it won’t let me do google play because it says the browser is no longer supported. I tried running S4 4.4 and S5 4.4, but now there’s a different problem. I can run google play, but not cash of clans. It says my device isn’t supported. For some reason, google play thinks I’m running a Verizon Wireless Casio C8114G. Help me, please.

  2. Hello, This has worked for me for several months but yesterday (after about a minute of play time) I started to get an “Unfortunately, Clash of Clans has stopped” error. I get kicked out of the program each time I try to play. Any suggestions?? Thank you.

In the instructions its says gapps-kk-20130813-signed.zip but when I followed the link to install it in downloaded gapps-jb-20130813-signed.zip. I didn’t think much of it until when I drug it to the home screen it transferred successfully but no google play store. What do I need to do?
