    Hi!

    I've just bought the BlackBerry KeyOne on Gearbest.
    Everything all right but of course it is the chinese version.

    So it sells without Google Apps.

    I've tried few many things, but each time I've installed Google Play, it runs and loop indefinitely.

    Do you have any idea for install this or for install another ROM with Google Apps?

    Thanks in advance

    PLEASE NOTE: the frequency back for BBB100-4 differs from other model and does not fully support UK carriers.
    In case you are still struggling - use https://haitaonexus.com/?p=647 :
    1. update the system to the latest version (AAO472 as writing)
    2. factory reset, go through the start up progress again (strongly recommend but it’s not necessary)
    3. Enable unknown sources, Enable Developer Options
    4. Download and install GMS (Google Mobile Service) installer from browser
    5. Enable GMS from GMS installer APP
    6. Enable GMS at the bottom in Developer Options then reboot the phone
    7. Grant all permission to Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Location Services, Done!

    I have the same problem, I will try this too. It gives me a little weird feeling that "in the back of the phone" it is still Chinese, are you satisfied after this trick @Roukmoute ? Does it feels like an European version now like you are used to now?

    Thanks

    I just bought a Keyone on Gearbest and this is how I fixed mine (in case you have not figured this out already):
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...store-t3329476
    Took me a few hours but follow these instructions and all should work fine.

    Hey I was thinking of picking one up from China too because of the price. I want to ask you more questions if you don't mind.

    1. If you install Google Play manually, are there any limitations in terms of Google services?
    2. How are the BlackBerry suites? Dtek? Hub?
    3. How would the warranty work if you have to fix it?
    4. Are the supported bands different to the ones sold in North America?
    5. Any Chinese bloat on there?

    Hello everyone!
    I have tried all the approaches mentioned here and on other sites... alas! While I am able to install and run nearly all the Google components (framework, contacts/calendar sync), what fails all the time is Google Play (Store) - without which of course, no apps download is possible. Is there any resolution possible please? Just to mention, I have Gmail set up as an email account - BUT the device is not associated with a Google account... because Google Play is not happening. Help!! Will be very grateful.

    Download the Yalp Store. It downloads APKs from the Play Store. Open source, and no Google Services required. Also, you don't have to log in.

    Doesn't help for the majority of decent apps that NEED those services.
