Default Access Google Play Store in China

This guide will instruct you on how to access Google play store in China, or any locale in the world.

It works for all phone types.

It works for all models and carriers.

It will show and make available all the apps and content as available in Google Play Store, US.
Requirements

Phone, USB cable, Internet connection, VPN access (I use HMA), Supporting files.

Your phone MUST be rooted. You’ll need to access configurations and allow programs superuser privileges.

If you’re not prepared to root your phone, you can end here.

Supporting files.

Process
Installing Google Play Store on any phone

Firstly, we need to access the Google Play Store – supported devices page and locate your device. If your device is supported, move on to step 4. If not, (and you’ll find many of the devices sold in China aren’t supported by Google), choose a device from the device list that is the closest approximation to your model.
Install File Commander (included in supporting files). With File Commander, access the /system/build.prop, it will look like this…
Access Google Play Store in China and other countries

Change the product code for your phone so it works in Google Play Store

Scroll down to the ro.product.model = GT-S7566
change it to the model compatible with Google Play Store.
in my case ro.product.model = GT-S7562. Save the file. A number of screens will come up asking if you wish to change the write permissions of the new file.
Accept them.
Restart your Phone.
It will tell you Android is loading updated software and gave you a short waiting screen.
Wait.
Next you need to transfer the GoogleServicesFramework, GoogleLoginService and GooglePlayStore to your phone’s download folder.
Once done, open these with File Commander. Again, it will ask you if you wish to change file permissions.
Accept. Let the programs install and re-start.

Your phone will now work with Google Play Store and all free apps.
Access Play Store apps in any location Worldwide

This little cheat will allow you to ‘pretend’ you’re a U.S. resident.
Google go to great lengths to make their products available under the correct jurisdictions. If you want your phone to ALWAYS have the maximum apps and content, things will be changing regularly to make sure this stays the case. Search on the ‘net or should subscribe (to my blog), to keep abreast of changes.

Install the Market Enabler apk included in the Supported Files.
Log on to your VPN service. From your VPN go to the ‘Help’ section or knowledge base. From here you should find information about allowing their service to be accessed from your mobile device.
Using a proxy

This is the Knowledge base from my VPN

My VPN’s knowledge base looks something like this. It has all the information you need.
The process isn’t a difficult one. The hosts guide will guide you through it.
Fire up Market Enabler. Select one of the carriers (in the U.S.) by pressing and holding.
Select ‘fake this connection now’.
Fire up your VPN Proxy you just set up in step 2. from your mobile device. In mine, it’s in the other settings section.
Access Google Play Store in China and Worldwide

Access Google Play Store in China and Worldwide

If all goes well, it will tell you your device is connected. You will now be surfing from the U.S. from a U.S. carrier for all intents and purposes..
Fire up Google Play Store. This will now be running as if you’re a resident of the United States even if, like me, you’re accessing Google Play Store from a mobile in China.

Yeas.

I take it that you mean Google Play Store force closes.

Problem
Google Play Store needs access to the /system folder in your device.

Solution
Root your device..



Try again.

Thanks for reading my thread.
