Hey MIUIers!
I'm excited to share with you on how to install Google Apps on MIUI 8 Android 7 Nougat China ROMs. This works on China Developer and China Stable ROM on Android 7. It should work with Android 6 too, but its not tested and not meant for Android 6.

I have been researching on Google apps for Android 7 China Developer ROM. However, on all of the tutorials I found and tried, all gave "Google Play Services" stopped error with "DeadSystemException". However, recently, I tried by combining 2 installation methods and found that it worked perfectly! After tested that it all worked without any problems most users have faced, I have compiled everything onto a .zip file for restore in MIUI Backup and Restore. I have also kindly added entertainment apps such as Youtube into the bundle. **Do note that Snapchat // Android Pay does not work on this version of Google. However, Gmail works perfectly fine.

Method 1 has been tested on Mi5, MI5 Pro, Mi4C to work. (Thanks @mitch002 and @navya@j for testing)
**Mi4C apparently has some issues with "Waiting for Wifi" problem. (As feedbacked by @navya@j) Do try it out on yours and reply if you encounter the same problem.For Calandar sync problem, clear data for Calandar and then launch Calandar. Issue will fix itself.
This tutorial has been tested by @mitch002 sir to work.
Method 1 - MIUI Local Backup and restore file (recommended) (easiest) (does not require PC) (make sure existing google apps have been uninstalled)
1) Download and Extract the .zip file I have uploaded onto Google Drive. Extract file according to:

If your device does not have the "AllBackup" Folder in /Internal Shared Storage/MIUI/backup/, download this.
JY.NICK Google Apps Backup & Restore Files w/o AllBackup Google Drive Download Link
Just extract zip into /Internal Shared Storage/MIUI/backup/ itself.

If your device has "AllBackup" Folder in /Internal Shared Storage/MIUI/backup/AllBackup, download this.
JY.NICK Google Apps Backup & Restore Files with AllBackup Google Drive Download Link
Just extract zip into /Internal Shared Storage/MIUI/backup/AllBackup/ itself.

> > > >


2) After extracting the files, Proceed to Settings > Additional Settings > Backup and Reset > Local Backups > Mar24, 8:05PM (161MB, 12 app data files) > Restore

Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-17-48-199_com.android.settings.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-17-52-085_com.android.settings.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-17-55-667_com.android.settings.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-18-01-613_com.miui.backup.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-18-05-782_com.miui.backup.png

3) Head to Security > Permissions and enable all permissions and autostart for all google apps and restart your device.
4) Launch Google Play Store.
5) Checking Info... Sign In! (It is normal for Google Play Services to stop here. As long as the "Add your account" screen is loaded on the background, its all good. Just press "Cancel" and continue with adding your account!)
Screenshot_2017-03-24-19-39-14-880_com.google.android.gms.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-19-39-31-150_com.google.android.gms.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-19-40-04-397_com.android.vending.png
6) Enjoy your Google Apps!
P.S. You might find some search results in Google Play Store. I forgot to clear it before backing up!! Sorry!! You can easily clear it by:
Pressing the 3 Lines on the top left corner > Settings > Under General, Clear local search history
> Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-30-16-363_com.android.vending.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-30-11-541_com.android.vending.png


If the above method didn't work for you, I apologize. Please try installing Google Apps using Method 2.

Method 2: The method I used to install my Google Applications (a little complex, but can be done) (requires PC) (make sure existing google apps have been uninstalled)
**I have recived feedback that this method might not work, but there's no harm trying.

1) Download Google Apps.exe (mirror by me) (file by thandana) Original Thread Link
2) Enable Developer Options (Tap MIUI Version until "You are now a developer" appears) > USB Debugging and Install via USB on your device.
Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-46-42-543_com.android.settings.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-21-46-47-673_com.android.settings.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-19-53-45-390_com.android.settings.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-19-53-50-941_com.android.settings.png
3) Connect your device to your PC
4) Run Google Apps.exe (best to run as adminisrator but there's no need) and allow USB Debugging Authorisation on your device.

Press any key to continue.
5) Wait for everything to install. There will be some apps that will not install because the app signatures are missing or changed. Its fine though, you just need to make sure the core google apps are installed such as
Google Backup Transport
Google Feedback
Google Login Service
Google OneTime Initializer
Google Partner Setup
Google Services Framework
Setup Wizard
Google Account Manager / Google Login Service
Google Calendar Sync Adapter
Google Contacts Sync Adapter

Allow the apps to install by selecting "Install" whenever the Install warning message pops out. Make sure you allow installation.

Google Play Services and Google Play Store will be installed at a later step.
6) Proceed to download Main Google Apps Local Backup and Restore files (mirror by me) (file by ArtistHeinHtet) Original Thread Link
7) Extract the files into /Internal Shared Storage/MIUI/backup/AllBackup/ just like in Method 1, Step 1. However, in this case, if you don't have the "AllBackup" folder, you will have to create it yourself.
8) After extracting the files, Proceed to Settings > Additional Settings > Backup and Reset > Local Backups > Dec 12, 2016 12:00AM (127MB, 4 app data files) > Restore

> > > Screenshot_2017-03-24-22-20-00-252_com.miui.backup.png > Screenshot_2017-03-24-22-20-11-218_com.miui.backup.png
9) Enable all permissions and autostart for all Google Apps and restart your device.
10) Launch Google Play Store.
11) Checking Info... Sign In! (It is normal for Google Play Services to stop here. As long as the "Add your account" screen is loaded on the background, its all good. Just press "Cancel" and continue with adding your account!)

> >
12) Go to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gms&hl=en to update your Google Play services so Google Play services won't force close.
13) Restart your device
14) Enjoy your Google Apps!
P.S. You might find some search results in Google Play Store. I forgot to clear it before backing up!! Sorry!! You can easily clear it by:
Pressing the 3 Lines on the top left corner > Settings > Under General, Clear local search history
> >

Method 3:: (If You have unlocked bootloader)

You can follow Feds64 thread http://en.miui.com/thread-356609-1-1.html to flash the twrp method. I have personally tested it and it works. Do only use ZCX TWRP. Other versions of TWRP does not work. Using this method, Snapchat works. :)


Congratulations! You have successfully installed Google Apps on your Android 7 device on MIUI 8!
Any problems can reply below, I will try my best to help :)

For Google Contacts problem, I have never encountered it on my Google Apps. So maybe you can download the backup files and restore only the Google Contact Sync APK. Report back if it worked for you :)
I LOVE MIUI!!!
