Default [Q] China 816 Unlocked & Rooted - how to get google apps?

Howdy, first timer here. I purchased the 816 and want to use my google apps on it and link it to my google account. I've unlocked, flashed custom recovery ("recovery_en" via fastboot) and recovered from "HTC 816 4.4.2 SENSE5.5 ROOT." I think everything worked, but when I try to install and open Google Services from the HTC Market Place I get the error message "Unfortunately, Google Play Services has stopped." How do I fix this? How do I install Google Play on my phone?

Update: I tried installing the google apps package from here: wccftech.com/download-latest-google-apps-android-1/ Now when I boot the phone I get a loop of "Unfortunately, SetupWizard has stopped." I can just recover from the HTC 816 4.4.2 SENSE5.5 ROOT to fix this ,right?

Update #2: Success! I wiped the cache, still got "Unfortunately, SetupWizard has stopped," wiped the dalvik cache, same error, then wiped user dater and cache and the phone not only works but had google play installed on it! And Hangouts too automatically opened. Now I can get all of my real apps.

Hi - Great that you succeeded - was this the HTC d816w? I have a friend who has purchased one and needs to install a ROM to get google play. I think it is important though that there might be a differentce between HTC desire 816w and HTC desire 816.

Cheers.

*EDIT: Just looked at the ROM link and it is for 816dw - Happy days for my friend I reckon. Cheers.

Talking HTC Desire 816 Android 4.4.3 Sense 6.0

I recently purchased HTC Desire 816 Android 4.4.2 Sense 6.0 (Unlocked). Any ongoing development? International version perhaps?

I just purchased HTC Desire 816W 3G Dual Sim Card. You can use HTC Marketplace to download application name GMS.
You just run this GMS and follow instruction (it would download file around 170MB, perhaps ROM). And after that will automatic Restart and install this ROM). After that I can get Google Play successfully.
