Hello, I have a BLU DASH 4.0 that has weird software issue. More and more apps are failing to load after updating because Google Play Services are failing to update.  When I try to update them I get an error:  "Incompatible with other application(s) using the same shared user ID" 

The apps that fail to run say "this app won't run without Google Place services, which are missing from your phone".

The phone is running BLU-D270-V04-GENERIC, which is Android 4.0.4 according to the About Phone screen.  When I ask it to search for updates, it says I'm running the latest version.

Some other internet forums I found via google search say there is a D271 out there.  I just want youtube and other apps to work again.  

Any ideas?

have an issue with a Blu DASH 4.0 - BLU_D270_V04_GENERIC.  There's no updates listed when I try to update the system.  If i update the apps via Play, all the google apps say they require play services to run.  Play services will not install, saying it's incompatible with other applications using the same shared user ID.  Not seeing too much on the way of fixes, other than updating the ROM.  The phone updater tells me I'm already running the latest version.  So how do I get around this?  I know there are more recent ROM's that will run on this phone, but am not sure how to get started.   So I guess my question is two fold: Where do I get an updated ROM and what do I need to do to install it?  I understand how to do the recovery mode, I've used that to reset my phone so I could use it again.  I see the option in there to load a ROM.  So is it simply a matter of putting an updated ROM on the SD card and selecting it?

So it turns out Anvil launching is a thing.  So much so there's a world champion.  Who knew?
