Hi guys, i just got my mi3 today (china wcdma version) and i installed the developer rom via updater app following the guide no problem. but there are 2 key issues:

1. google play services/playstore does not work. have installed via mi market, allowed installation from unkown sources and downloaded all 4 files, but as soon as i open them they close. i have heard that the singapore rom does not have the chinese bloatware and comes with gapps preinstalled so i tried installing that via the updater app and that could not install for some reason.

2. chinese bloatware: how to get rid of them!

please xiaomi.eu, help this kiwi (new zealander) finally enjoy his mi3!

new user here. google play store won't launch. it pops up then closes. I was trying to free up some space by deleting manually downloaded apps, i only left google play store, calendar sync and play services. can someone help me restore Google Play Store? Also, will a Factory reset fix this? Will the phone lose the English language?
