Long story short: Got a chinese android tablet that I rooted (the only thing I can think of that is relevant) that suddenly is unable to use Google Play services. Before I chuck it in the bin, any suggestions?

 

Things I've tried 

 

- factory reset

 

- clear all caches/data relevant

 

- install latest, later, old, older, oldest versions of google play store

 

Error message whenever I try to use anything google service related - eg google play store, apps eg Youtube

 

Google Play services, which some of your applications rely on, is not supported by your device. Please contact the manufacturer for assistance

Google play services and Google play store are two completely separate things. I'd suggest you need to flash a fresh instance of gapps. Download correct version for your operating system, boot to recovery, flash gapps.

 Or if that doesn't work have a look on slatedroid.com for your tablet model.

Do you have a custom recovery available for your tablet? If so, the best way to fix this is to flash the latest gapps for your Android version from opengapps.org

 

If you don't have a custom recovery, then you'll have to do this the hard way:

 

1. First, get rid of the existing Google Play Services, and *all* Google Play apps completely.
2. Clear the cache/dalvik-cache and reboot
3. Download and install GMSInstaller.apk and open it.
4. Click on "One-click to install Google Services"
5. Go to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->All
6. Select "Clear Data" for Google Play Services and Google Service Framework
7. Reboot.
8. Open your browser and search for Google Play Services. Click the link to the store and click update.
9. Reboot.

I've personally tried this on a few Chinese devices and it works like a charm.

How were the Google apps on it in the first place? Chinese Android devices normally don't have them installed. I've seen a few of parallel imports where the importer has manually installed them but they disappear on a factory reset.

Thanks all, so far nothing seems to be working. The device is telling me it is not compatible with Google play services. Presumably the chip Architecture has something to do with it.

Lesson learnt long ago, ditched Chinese clones of anything interesting unless recommended by geekzone :)

I think they were ok. I have factory reset it umpteen times before and after rooting it with no problems. [with kingroot - I've read about the risks and I never do any work or logon to anything with the tablet, it's for kids' games and movies, so they can steal all my data all they want] 

 

Then one fine day ... it was not compatible with google apps!

Had a Chinese android phone about 3-4 years ago, with no gmail, no google play, no google part of services at all.
I managed to look into the files hiding in every catalogue and yes the google apps were actually stored under a certain catalogue. They were stored there but not installed yet.
The phone worked perfectly, like any normal android phone bought here in NZ after running those apps.

Once again it was long time ago not sure how things like now.
