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.
