    Hi

    I purchased a Xiao Mi phone and I'm trying to install Google Play, I have downloaded the 'Google Installer' app by Eric Xiang from the Mi Market but when I run it I get the message 'Google installer has been restricted from using WLAN networks' and if I switch WiFi off I get 'Google installer has been restricted from using Data networks'.

    All other apps such as email, web browsing and Mi Market access data both on 3G and Fifi without any problems.

    If anyone knows a solution to get round this, or even another way to install Google Apps withougt restriction I would be an extremely happy person:)

    Many thanks :)

    Go to the 'security' application. Click data usage and then restrict. Your apps have been removed from the list allowed to use data.

    Hi Tiltowait,

    I had a similar problem just now, but mine was a bit different, all apps has been restricted from using Data networks. Manage to start them all up via your directory. But turning off of the data was not done by me. Any clue how did this happen?

    It's done by default by the Security application. It's a bad decision by Xiaomi, but you can't tell them anything, they think they know better than everyone.
