Hey guys, I bought a XiaoMi 3 smartphone in a street-store in Shenzhen a few days ago. It cost 1200¥ and now I suspect it is fake, but I'm still not sure about that :s It's my first smartphone and I have no experience with Android (and even less with MIUI, of course). I was able to change the system's language to English, though some apps still are in chinese. In order to use the applications I'm used to (lets say, e.g., Instagram), I would like to install Google Play Store. Now begins the epic. I spent 2 days following all kinds of tutorials in this forum and all around the web and I wasn't able to properly install the Google Play Store. I was also unable to root or flash my phone as well! I tried to install Google Play Store using several different methods, tried to flash and tried to root my phone, and I failed at all. Let me point an important fact: apparently, I don't have the updater app installed on my phone! The following pictures are screenshots of my phone's settings: Before hand, let me thank you guys for any help! EDIT: When I install Google Play Store using Eric Xiang's google installer app, I can't use it because the Google Play Store app always crash when I launch it.
