Step 1: Obtain root access

Step 2: Download your favorite Root enabled File Manager

Step 3: Download the latest Gapps from your favorite host.

Step 4: Extract the following files from the flashable archive
/system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar;
/system/etc/permissions/com.google.android.maps.xml;

Step 5: Copy the two files to the respective directories on your device using Root enabled File Manager.
(Gapps archive)/system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar to (device)/system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar
(Gapps archive)/system/etc/permissions/com.google.android.maps.xml to (device)/system/etc/permissions/com.google.android.maps.xml

Step 6: Set the permissions of both files to 644

Step 7: Restart Device

Step 8: Install Google Plus

Tested on 7d 501u 4.4 rom

Thank you very much for this tutorial.

It works great on my [ROM][HUAWEI OFFICIAL BETA][7D-503L]KitKat 4.4.2 / EMUI 3.0 / 400 DPI.

Not only i can install Google + BUT I can now install all apps i couldn't install before.

2nd Google account is not possible with any current 503L or 501U ROM.
Workaround with setting up second account via Google+ is a cludge. No contact sync and no secure access.

If nobody knows, I will test next weekend.

thanks for sharing
my device is on the same ROM as yours
I don't use g+ but I have some issues with other google services
though I couldn't manage to replace .Jar files by root explorer but I replaced some files in "priv-app" folder with the same one from flashable gapps and it works perfectly

Thanks for giving context to the 2nd google account issue.
I suspect this has to do with the huawei modified play store. We will need to flash gapps via custom recovery or make the modifications to the update.app file manually. Something I will be working on once a final release is out maybe sooner.

I could get Google+ to install but it doesn't work. It tell me I need to uninstall and reinstall the app, but the play store still says its incompatible.

The Google+ APK from the CM KitKat GAPPS is 6 years old, so maybe I just need to find a newer APK.

Yup, that was it, I downloaded Google+ 4.5 and it installed just fine. Nice....

Can you set up a second Google account? And see both in Google Calendar?
