    Now I have received the latest OS, I have downloaded Snap to add Android apps. They are working fine but some, SnapChat for example, is asking for Google Play.

    Google Play Services for 10.2.1-img_20140128_132511.png

    Is there any way around this? Snapchat still works, it's just annoying having that pop up every time I open it.

    Thank you.

    It isn't looking for Google Play - it's looking for Google Play Services

    Okay, I'll rephrase the question. How do you get Google Play Services?

    you don't need it, I have been using snapchat on the 10.2.1 leaks for months, just tap off of the dialog and it will go away and you can SnapChat to your hearts content =)

    You'll have to do this everytime you open the app, but it's a minor inconvenience

    downloaded google play services app from 1 mobile due to needing it for google + and hangouts (or so those apps said it needs google paly services to run) - app seems to have installed fine. launches and comes up with three options -

    1. google +
    2. ads
    3. android device manager

    click on google + and it says " you are not signed into google +"
    click on ads shows menu to enable ads
    click on android device manager and show the options to remotely locate the device and allow remote lock

    am I missing something.

    Yeah, you'll need a patched version of the google play services apk, and whichever app you're trying to get working will need to be patched using the tool found in the link below. The zip package with the tool also has the patched google play services apk.

    Now that I'm on Q10SQN100-4/10.3.1.2576 I thought I'd try this again. This time it failed. Bummer.

    I tried to download Google Play Services from 1mobile but when I click on install I'm told that it cannot be installed.

    Very frustrating

    This used to be possible, ~2-3 years back. It is no longer possible.
