These files are KING!!!!
This method works if you root your phone!
I rooted my phone(Samsung Galaxy S4) bought from China loaded with spam and bloatware. The phone by default has a whole load of crap installed into the system apps folder and can't be deleted unless rooted!!!
I rooted using:
System App Remover
Step 1: Put phone in USB debugging mode in order for ODIN to successfully detect and install 'cofface_I9500_cwm_recovery_en_new.tar'
Step 2: Power phone on holding Volume Down, Menu Button and Power Button. (This put it in download mode)
Step 3: Plug phone into PC(Ensure USB drivers have been installed)
Step 4: Open ODIN
Step 5: Select PDA and locate 'cofface_I9500_cwm_recovery_en_new.tar'
Step 6: Click Start (Sit back it takes a few)
Step 7: Once completed immediately unplug battery before phone restarts.(This apparently ensures the CWM will root the phone for S4 new security)
Step 8: Power phone on using Volume Up, Menu Button and Power Button.
Step 9: Root phone option
Step 10: Install from SD card
Step 11: Select the CWM option
Step 12: Restart phone from the options
Step 13 : Super User app should now be installed on the phone
Step 14 : Given that you can't access google play you may need to download apps via pc or web browser on your mobile.
Step 15 : Download the following apps a) Root Explorer b) System App Remover.
Step 14 : Be smart and write down the names of the apps you need to remove and take note of the icons.
Step 15 : Delete what you can through System App Remover (Some will not delete through this app but you'll understand a little later)
Step 16 : Once you've deleted what you can, open Root explorer.
Step 17 : Copy the Google Play files (There are 3) into a directory you can find on your phone.
Step 18 : These files should be stored on SD in Root Explorer, Tap Hold and Move.
Step 19 : Go to System then Apps.
Step 20 : Paste and extract the folder.
Step 21 : Delete the remaining apps that System App Remover couldn't remove.( be careful deleting the wrong apps can be troublesome)
Step 22: NB!!!! Change the permissions on theses 3 apps to all permissions or your phone will keep bringing up alerts and freezing!!!!!
Step 23 : In any event copying the framework from another device you will be forced to do a Factory Reset to have it all fully functional!!!!
This worked for me. Thought I'd put the full list of instructions because it took me a few hours to gather all this info from a mix of sites.
All credit to everyone I resourced to finally get this working!!! This seems to have been an unresolved one on many sites with no tutorials for newbs.
