You can install Google Play Store without root. There is no need to install TWRP or CWM either. We also receive the huge benefit of keeping Play Store and Services and Framework when we OTA. Why? Because they are installed as part of user data instead of injected into system.
In all phones we've tested, Play and all associated data and apps remain after OTA with no reinstall of gapps required.

Just follow this simple guide. Credit to the original thread: Credit link removed by XDA moderators

This should work with most major brand China phones, eg: Meizu M2, Meizu M2 Note, Xiaomi Mi4C, Xiaomi Redmi 3, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro, LeTV 1s X500, and phones such as these which typically have only official CN ROMs, or which have more up to date CN ROMs than the India or Global ROMs.

How to install Google Play, Google Framework, Google Services, Google Play Store without root or twrp or cwm


This guide will show you how to install Google Play Services on most any legitimate brand China mobile. Tested so far are the ones in the beginning of this thread, but it should work for many.

The great thing about this is that there's no need to root or install a custom recovery or flash anything.

1. download the .zip from the link above and extract the .apk to your phone
2. Install and run the apk
3. Press the big button in installer apk
4. Click install as each app finishes auto-downloading
5. Make sure to allow permissions for the various components if requested.
6. Google Play will update itself automatically in the background within first few minutes after using it

Doesn't get any easier than this. Enjoy and comment if it's helped you. Regards.

Yes, we're very aware there are other reasons users may wish to root or install custom recovery, but if you just want Play Store, Play Services, Play Framework without the hassle, this guide is for you.

Yes, man. All Xiaomi and should work on all LeTV and all Meizu. No need for root and no need for TWRM CWM custom recovery.

Thank you for this, but it didn't work 4 me.
it did install all the apks successfully, however the Google Play Services keep crushing
without the Google Play services functioning, Google Play store can't connect to Google servers ans thus can't update the versions...
how can i know what version i need to install for Google Play Services?

I read somewhere that it depends of my Android version, the processor and dpi.
my Android version is 4.4.2 (it is a car multimedia device - the one that comes with Hyundai 2016 models)
I have no idea what is the processor...
I have no idea what's the dpi....

Will this work on Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium?
I've manually downloaded and tried various Google Service apk verions on my Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium (from China), but after installing the services, the Google Services Framework is constantly crashing and doesn't work.

Will this work? is there a way to get it working??

Note that I made a post about it, but it has no replies yet.. It might be nested somewhere that isn't very noticeable.

Also.. I'm very sure Google Play Services and all the dependent packages/services are not OS-system level apps.. I mean, lots of phones (released in NA) have Google services installed at root level, so its not possible to modify/remove.. but there's many devices who dont come with it and can be installed separately/manually (without root and custom ROMs, etc) and that makes sense.. right? All the google apps are just, regular apps...?
