I generally want to deepen a knowledge of a product before posting any blog on the blog, but on this occasion before talking about it Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 I will make an exception and the choice was born unfortunately these days, seeing a video review of the Chinese tablet beforehand, but without the complainant mentioning the fact that there was a ROM is choppy (maybe he did not notice).

Of course in the comments many users, who will surely have read our guide on how to recognize a ROM flicker from an original, have signaled the issue so much that the reviewer decided to make a new video but this time he thought it good to focus on Missing Play Store Issue and on the fact that the same is blocking when downloading on bug "Waiting for WiFi" after that he had installed GAPPS through the Google Installer.

Well, if you've understood who and what video you're alluding to, reset everything and try to install me on the Google Play Store on your new Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, waiting for Xiaomi to release the Global Stable ROM.


In particular we will install Google Apps on MIUI 8 based on Android 7 Nougat for ROM China. The method works both on Developer China and China Stable and is currently the only working method for Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 so if you have already downloaded the Google Installer you can also run it.

1

Download GAPPS

We download the backup file for the GAPPS that we should unpack on the computer and then rewrite it within the Mi Pad 3.

DOWNLOAD BACKUP GAPPS ARCHIVE

2

GAPPS transfer

At this point let us go with the standard file explorer inside the folder contained in the path MIUI -> backup and copy the file just unpacked to have a path like this: MIUI -> backup -> AllBackup -> xiaomitoday

3

GAPPS Restore

Now we will go to the menu Settings -> Additional settings -> Backup & reset -> Local backups where we will find our backup with a date and time already ready, on which we will tap. At this point on the screen that will appear we will select the item Restore

4

Permissions

Once the backup is done complete at 100%  you will need to give the newly installed applications permissions. To do this, go to the menu Settings -> Installed Apps -> Downloaded and select applications by scrolling to the entry Permission Manager from which we should enable every single permit for all the applications we just installed (of course backup ones).

4

Start

Now we will go to the menu Settings -> Autostart -> Add autostart apps and from here we will add our apps by clicking on it Allow. Just restart the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3.

5

Credential accounts

Once your tablet has restarted, open the Play Store app Enter your login credentials. You may also want 5 minutes before you see the classic Play Store screen on the screen so do not worry but once you've started you can exit the app and uninstall it.

6

Download Play Store

At this point download apk related to the Google Play Store that will not be updated but will prevent you from having any "Waiting for WiFi" bugs.

DOWNLOAD APK PLAY STORE

7

Play Store Installation

We just have to install the new Play Store file (remember to enable permissions for installation from unknown sources). After the installation, let's go to the Store settings and we disable automatic updating for applications so that the same store is not updated to the latest version which would give us the problem "Waiting for WiFI".

At this point we have finished and you can start to download everything you want from the Play Store waiting for the official MIUI ROM with support for Italian and the Play Store already standard. Therefore mine remains a "temporary" guide to remedy the initial problem that provides for the absence of GAPPS and Play Store on Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, so do not take it as the guide resolving all the problems but at least we have tried.

Finally, in case it happens that the Play Store gets stuck on a white screen don't panic and don't send me any damn, but in this case you will simply solve cleaning cache and Google Play Services data. I look forward to our review of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 but in the meantime you can take a look at our AnTuTu Benchmark.

In other phones I have always put roms ... but the passage from phony to global I read that we must pass from the Chinese one.
In addition the guides around are all different and without user comments.
I was looking for some solid guidance. What do you mean by store? did you go to the global or take the leash?

first point, there is no global for mipad3.
do you have FB? to switch to the official Chinese rom there is an automatic tool developed by a boy. to put the xiaomi.EU rom you must first install the TWRP recovery and from there the EU rom. there are guides of each online.

I highly recommend you to switch to Rom eu! First of all you have to look at what Rom you have on when you get it I had a Rom 8.2.9.0 that does not exist so it was farllocca even if the Italian language was present and all the Google services the PlayStore was not working, if you are familiar with modding I suggest you install the rom Europe is the only way to fully enjoy all Google services
