Hi guys

I'm asking you for HELP because I lost hope how to fix my problem with my new Asus Zenfone 5 on my own. I bought phone from China - Spemall.com (good and safe website). Phone is brilliant and very well made all is perfect except one thing - it was no play store installed. All other phones and tablets from them had play store installed this is first time when I had device without it.

I have this phone for two days now I was trying almost everything (in my opinion everything) to install both first Google Play Services and after that Play Store.

I downloaded both latest versions apk and first installed services and after play store but when trying to tap in play store icon all what I getting is

---Unfortunately Google play services has stopped.

I was cleaning data, cache, reinstalling both apps and even I did few times factory reset but nothing. I was still getting famous massage --- Unfortunately Google play services has stopped. Whatever I press Google settings or play store it will always end up in this same way.

Phone is not rooted!!!

I was using guides from you tube because that was easy start and you must start somewhere and sometimes when problem is little you are able to fix it but this time is different and my knowledge and you tube is not enough that's why I asking you guys to help me in this difficult moment.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Best regards

Kabak

Hi Crazykk

Thanks for you help I did installed this before but did not liked and after watching you tube I found how to install: mobile 1 ---- Aptido and Amazon store (Amazon is tragically bad with few apps free).

Mobile 1 and Aptido are very good I must find out what I did before because you tube does not work I had Google play services installed and I was working few things on you tube just to check if they work.

Still looking for solution to get Google play services and Google play store to work .

Thank you for your help.

Regards

Go to this forum, got method to change frm CN ver to WW ver. In pg 70 onwards. Must go to asus.com singapore site to download the official firmware.

Meanwhile, enjoy this beautiful phone!
