This thread was created as a complement to @meredithhan's thread since some people were having trouble getting play store working in their phone.

I'm going to describe two methods by which you can enable google apps on your phone. I used a RedMi WCDMA with stable 5.0 to do this tutorial. I also used TWRP recovery (http://en.miui.com/forum.php?mod ... 7437&highlight=twrp)

Method A: Installing Google Apps With Custom Recovery

  • Go to GAPPS web page and look the table to find out which package you need to download. You can check in your phone in settings - about phone - android version

  • Download package to sd card and reboot to recovery. You can select reboot to recovery in updater hit Menu button and select reboot to recovery mode

3. Flash the downloaded zip and reboot phone

Method B: Installing Google Apps With Google Installer


  • Go to Mi Market app and search for Google Installer

2. Download app and install it

3. Launch Google Installer and install google apps. The second and third are calendar and contact sync, so upon choosing either you get prompted to install required apps (framework, play store, account manager...)

4. Install all

5. When all are installed reboot the phone

TIP:
Sometimes after using google installer, play store app closes and can't be used; in that case, uninstalling it and installing again usually does the trick

Looks like Play Store isn't working after installing it with google installer. If this is your case, install the latest Play Store com.android.vending-4.8.20.apk (6.69 MB, Downloads: 15395) Latest play store vending-5.0.37.apk (9.05 MB, Downloads: 10581)

Got a Redmi 1S WCDMA with me, Method A not working because no Custom Recovery installed.  Method B was not working due to some parsing error.

So I downloaded the stable ROM for Redmi 1 WCDMA Singapore, extracted the following apk from this ROM (under /system/app/) and install on Redmi 1S WCDMA, Play Store and Google Sync (Calender & Contacts) is now working perfectly

1. GoogleServicesFramework.apk
2. GoogleLoginService.apk
3. GmsCore.apk
4. Phonesky.apk
5. GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk
6. GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk
7. GooglePartnerSetup.apk

flashing via recovery may cause problems and FCs cuz google source already in MIUI and you can install GAPPS as ordinary APKs ,, and flashing gapps via recovery may replace some files and cause an fc on some apps

It may cause fc, but that's why it's always good to make a nandroid backup to revert to previous state just in case.
For the gapps to be installed as normal apks they first have to be signed; and that's what google installer does, install gapps as normal apks.
Anyway, i've never had issuess flashing gapps with recovery but thanks for the input @alialmabhouh

sorry, on my tablet, didn't mean to submit and it won't let me edit.. anyway, I had originally installed gapps using the boot loader but didn't feel like doing that again so I tried to use the Google installer, but that caused gplay to crash every time. I ended up downloading the newest gplay version on the web and installing that. it worked. so if you are having issues still, try that.
