    Hi, I recently purchased an Android phone and discovered there was no playstore installed. I've tried installing google installer to see if I can sideload playstore and google apps manually but the trick isnt working. I saw a post on androidauthority on how to install playstore on any phone. After following their guide, it still didn't work.

    I won't mind rooting this phone to have playstore and google apps working. Anybody know how to go about this? I'll appreciate a guide or you can direct me to a site to see instructions.

    Btw... My device name is Gionee Gn5001S and it's running on Android 5.0 lollipop.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try GApps - The Open GApps Project. If that doesn't work, you can't install Play on that phone.

    @Rukbat; thanks for the response. I tried installing gapps but it didn't work. I kept getting an error during the flashing process. Maybe it's because I'm using stock recovery. Anyway, I'd like to inform you that I've playstore working on my Gionee gn5001s. A friend I meet on fb helped me out. He actually provided a URL which I accessed and followed the instructions. The only requirement was to root my phone, which I did and I had some files moved to system memory and playstore starting working after rebooting. Thanks
