I'm using Samsung Galaxy Trend 3 SM-G3502U, having android of version 4.2.2
Since this is a Chinese device, so it was normal to be shipped without GApps. So, I tried to to install the latest version among the versions which are compatible with Android 4.2.2 of the following apps from APKMirror:
- Google Play Services
- Google Play Services Framework
- Google Calendar Sync
- Google Contacts Sync
- Google Account Manager
Still, no luck, since when I tried logging into Snapchat, a pop-up "popped" out, saying that google play services is not supported by my device.
Also, when I installed and opened the latest version of Play Store among the compatible versions for Android 4.4.2 from APKMirror, it showed "Error retrieving information from server RH-01" which meant that I didn't have the compatible GApps installed.
Now, are there anymore ways to try out for me so that my phone supports Google Services Framework, or I am left out with installing a custom ROM?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!!
And wait, there is one more information I can give you if you find it useful.
Having all the apps listed above installed, I installed the "Device ID" app by Evozi. It couldn't show me the GSF. The space for that was left out empty instead.
