Question [Q] SM-T805C

Friend of mine just bought a Tab S from china and find out that it has no gapps on it just some custom stuff,
is there any solution to that?

He bought it from a certified samsung store, but the problem is that this is a variant especially made for china
since they are not allowed to use youtube nor facebook and the list goes on...
Even when we installed the playstore via APK it crashes instantly. Should I try Custom Roms?

You can try to install Gapps for kitkat 4.4.2 from https://goo.im/devs/paranoidandroid/roms/gapps/ this will install the standard google apps including playstore.

You obviously know nuts about Android devices released in China.

Should I root it like the usual Sm-t805 or it can be bricked?
