I have a Samsung Galaxy Y and rooted it a few days ago. After that I set up a few apps and granted them access to root permissions (via the Superuser app). I allowed root to all apps that requested it.

Now I cannot connect to the internet via any app except browser apps - Gmail cannot receive emails, and Google Play is not loading.

I tried a factory reset and unrooted the phone, but it is still not working.

How can I fix this issue?

what rooted apps did you use? –  Lie Ryan Nov 29 '12 at 19:26

Is background data enabled?

You can enable it in Settings->Accounts and Sync->Background Data or System Settings->Data Use->Menu Button->Auto-sync data checked.

If it's specific to your Google accounts, check the general Google synce settings.

Settings->Accounts/Google->YourEmail@gmail.com Last synced MM/DD/YYYY 12:00 PM->List of Google Sync Settings.

Some apps may indicate sync is turned off, like the Gmail app:

Gmail App->Menu/Settings->YourEmail@gmail.com->DATA USAGE/Gmail sync is OFF
