Default [Q] have no google apps and the screen problem

I have a new G Tablet 8.3, the Chinese Edition of G Pad 8.3. I have two questions:

1. there is no google apps on stock rom. How to install them? If I install CM11, Can I keep the knock to trun on screen feature?

2. I turned down the screen brightness a little. I found the terrible light lattice on the bottom. Does it normal?

I also buy the Chinese Edition,and I had tried the cm11,I can tell you ,you can knock to turn on the screen but can't turn off it by flash cm11.
If you like the LG UI and you also want google apps ,you can flash the hongkong KDZ. Now,my device is hongkong edition by flash HK kdz.
The light trouble is normal in Chinese Edithon and HongKong Edithon,as I know

take a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmiSEC3rbHI , does your gpad do the same? This is an issue of gpad called light bleeding.

if you want to return back to stock use lg mobile support tool instead of flashing manual the kdz file. take a look at this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471370 and here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2590185

i ve only found the gb version of stock rom for lg g pad here http://storagecow.eu/index.php?dir=X...G+G+Pad+8.3%2F

the brightest device I've ever owned and while it's nice, it's also the first device that I keep below 50%.
