I have purchased a Redmi 1s mobile. It has miui v5. It seems that we can't update Google apps in miui. So, how can we update Google apps in miui. I've just seen that the updates are shown in apps like 9apps and mobogenie. Is it safe to download the updates from these apps? Or How can I make Google play to show these updates?

    Do you mean the gapps package, or individual apps on the Play Store? – RossC Sep 23 '14 at 14:09
  • The google apps package – M.Tarun Sep 23 '14 at 14:38

    And are you asking about updating (i.e. the apps are already installed), or installing them in the first place? Because if they are already installed, they take care for their updates themselves (or rather Google Play does). – Izzy Sep 23 '14 at 15:52
  • In miui google apps do not update themselves. I'm asking about updating apps. – M.Tarun Sep 23 '14 at 16:43

    Have you tried using google installer ? en.miui.com/thread-17910-1-1.html – Saravana Bharathi Sep 28 '14 at 3:17

it replaces your play store and google apps with the last official versions

you have to flash it from Recovery

  • This should help but he needs to be rooted for that. Im not whether his phone is rooted or not. – Saravana Bharathi Oct 1 '14 at 6:24
