I am new to MIUI and I am under the impression that I can't install APK's normally. When I open an APK with a file manager it goes trough the Mimarket and installs a complete different version..
Is it possible to bypass this?
Another thing is that I can't install Google Now launcher, There is no option to select the launcher in the settings and even when clearing system launcher cache, when pushing home button there is no choice to which default launcher I'd like to choose?
This is not android..or I am lost
Version 4.10.17
