I'm using XOLO A500 running Android 4.0.4. Initially, it was showing this error:

IMG: Google Play Services error

Then I tried installing Google Play Services through APK file(that was solution on many sites), but I am getting the error "Can't install Google play services":

IMG: Can't install Google play services

I rooted the device, and accidentally, my friend deleted it.

  • What app? What device model? Why your device came with no Google apps? Please elaborate. – xangua Aug 3 '15 at 4:36

  • if your any other friend have the same model phone , you can then share the apk file of googlePlayService and install, otherwise you can factory reset your phone which restore the system app..! – imvpn22 Nov 30 '15 at 10:51
  1. Download System Apps Installer APK file and install it in your phone
  2. Download recent version of Google Play Services app's APK
  3. Install it as a system app by using System Apps Installer

Note: Incorrect use of System Apps Installer will harm your phone
