Try clear your Google frameworks cache and Play cache. Samsung Apps uses Google play region setting.

Hope that help.

As for root issue you raised, if your phone has software issue then you can reset it back. But if it is a hardware issue then (water damage, crack screen, run over by a truck... Etc) you won't get warranty anyway. Also exploded phone might still be covered by warranty if it happens on its own. Either way hardware issue that makes the phone won't turn on (components failure, dead screen, , dead pixels or factory fault) will validate your warranty because it is not software related (from what I understand), use MHL cable and you can reset it from there.

As long you power the phone on (when you see Samsung logo) then you can always unroot it to get your warranty. :)
The odds of bricking is very small and the only way I can see you'd brick it is to corrupt the NAND flash via software flashing of third party ROMs.
 

The Google Services Framework already had an empty cache, so I cleared the Google Play Store cache.  Unfortunately that didn't help.

I think I'll just wait till Samsung next update their Samsung Apps app and see if that fixes it.  It's not like I really need to use Samsung Apps, I was just wondering why it had suddenly stopped working for me.


Hahahaha guess what now I got the same error as you do after the new Samsung update came through :) Great!

I contacted Samsung through their website and got back the following reply:

Thank you for your email.
The Samsung server is having issues at the moment.
We are trying to resolve this as soon as possible.

Yes I assumed so. I tried hacking the provider and cache but still can't log-in.

I just got forwarded this email:


Jelly Bean 4.1.1 for the Vodafone NZ sold Galaxy S3 was approved by Vodafone NZ 09/11/2012, so now it's over to Samsung Korea to get this update pushed out via KIES or OTA, This generally can take from 10 business working days to a few weeks.

Samsung Apps app is now working ok for me, looks like it really was something at Samsung's end.

Yes mine is working again as well.

 

@JohnR
Great to know but I won't hold my breath for it until it really hit the OTA server. We've seen something like this before with 4.04 update was approved and sent to Samsung but never get released. So for now I won't believe it until I see it :)

I concurred. It is under my control I think lol (joke)

Anyway,
Did anyone followed the tutorial on how to save the battery on XDA? I did half way through but my battery seems to died faster lol. So I am now back to what I was before but got about 27hours of average usage + idle.
