HOW TO INSTALL GOOGLE PLAYSTORE ON YOUR MI BOX 3

Is it necessary to have Playstore? Of cause not.

Here how I get my XM box to have Playstore.

Xiami Gen 3 box is a great box that seems to use a very good quality components, great pcb, great ics, great etc..and so on.. However its short coming include lacks of storage space and most of all, it does not have Google Playstore.

(By the way, I lazy to upload photos, so no photos here).

Tools:
01 Rebootmanager.apk
02 Xposed Installer.apk
03 HDXPosed.apk
04 Google Services Framework
05 Google Play services
06 Google Account Manager
07 Google Play Store
08 Systemappmover.apk

You can download all above files in one zipped file here:
Xiaomi Playstore files:

[The old Playstore file for reference-fixed link
http://www.mediafire.com/download/djslf1wlfkh7d7w/XiaomiPlaystore.zip

These apks are not in above Xiaomi Playstore files and you might needed as well.
Android_Settings-DomoSettings.apk
http://www.mediafire.com/download/86sgof4ofn8cu5g/Android_Settings-DomoSettings.apk

YouTube.ver.1.0.5.3.apk
http://www.mediafire.com/download/0ic5r4k90sxu5wv/YouTube.ver.1.0.5.3.build.10005031-from_BL.apk
(There is an updated version in the file section but I prefer the layout of this version rather than the new. It is from my Beelink S82 Plus)

There are many tutorial out there on how to get Playstore to work but most of them will show "No connection" after installed all the apk files and signed into Playstore. Here, how I get mine to work.

Device:
- Xiaomi MI BOX Gen 3 (1GB Ram, 4GB Storage)
-Firmware: 1.3.87 & (1.3.112d.2199-via sdcard update); both confirmed working.
-Rooted (a must); can try directly from this website Root360 (in Chinese) http://root.360.cn/
-Preferably with external sd card (8 or 16 GB, Class 10-a must)
[Other firmware & mini might work as well but I only want to state what exact work on mine. The most important should be rooted.]

Installation:
Download all the required files onto thumdrive or sd card, extract and pop into the box.
-Install Systemappmover.apk (You can remove later once Playstore working)
-Install Rebootmanager.apk (This app to reboot without pulling the plug, optional.)
-Install the 2 Xposed
01_xposed installer (Reboot); Launch, the app, install Framework, (Reboot)
02_HDXPosed-1.3-01.apk (Reboot)
-Install 4 Google Apps (+1 Youtube if wanted to).
G1 Google Services Framework
G2 Google Play services
G3 Google Account Manager
G4 Google Play Store (Reboot)
5 YouTube.ver.1.0.5.3.apk ( I already installed this Youtube earlier)

-Ensured 1-4 apps are installed into device internal memory (not external). (or use this app to move from sdcard to internal System_app_remover.apk)

-Clear data from setting for all 4 Google app & services. To access the standard Android setting menu, use this apk Android_Settings-DomoSettings.apk

-Use Systemappmover-201510.apk to move G1-G4 & HDXPosed Apps to Service app (Select the app, Move to /system/app)

-Reboot (not sure need or not but I did).

-Log into Playstore & Youtube as per normal (my Google Services (Framework?) was automatically updated after log-in to Youtube).

-Done, everything working perfectly.

-Playstore working (login, update app, remote install apps)

-Youtube (ver: 1.0.5.3.build.10005031) working.

====Yeh... you have got a working Xiaomi tv box with the Playstore======

Additional info/ Reading:
1) I adapted the procedure from this one.
http://www.aftvnews.com/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-the-amazon-fire-tv/
2) I did some reading from here.
http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/install-google-play-store-youtube-on-mitv-2-need-root.26743/
If you still cannot get it to work then let me help you to ask my friend here:

Hi. Can you elaborate a bit on the rooting process? Thanks

Just to give you more info about the device:
Model: MiBox3
MIUI TV Version: 1.4.15 (stable)
Android Version: 5.1.1

The device doesnt have microusb/OTG port like its been demoed in the multiple rooting guides.

How do I use root360.cn in that case? Is there an alternate way to root and install gapps? I am primarily looking to use NetFlix and Youtube, as well stream content from my Macbook.

Thanks a lot in advance.
