This method will work, but the problem is you have to gain root access before you can work with it.

In other to gain that root access we need to download a third party application like root browser this application will help us locate the main android file that is responsible for the play store. 

But you have to have a rooted phone (if you don’t have a rooted phone you can do that yourself by using an app called king root. But beware rooting can cause Android to crash if not done properly, that’s why using an app is the safest.

Also, know that you’ll lose any warranty on it. Most upgrade may likely crash your device too)

– Open the root browser and go to system √ etc √ goto file called host √ open and edit it, adding harsh in front of all the IP address except the first one.

– Then Save.

It should now work.
