    Hi there, thank you for your explanations. I did everything like you explained it yet once I open Google Play and type in my account information it says “checking info”. After that nothing happens and I can’t use the application. Do you have a solution for this issue?

    Hi there. Thank you for instructions. I have a Xiaomi 6 and installing Google Play on it worked perfectly fine. Unfortunately, once I open the app and I sign in with my google details the application stops at “checking info”. It stays like that for a while before a screen appears saying “Couldn’t sign in. There was a problem communicating with Google servers. Try again later”. Do you have a solution for this? Thank you very much for your help.

    I downloaded everything…when I want to copy the AllBackup folder from my pc to my Mi6…it does not allow me to copy it. When I want to copy and paste the folder in the back up folder on the phone ‘paste’ is not an option. I can copy the zip file…but not extract it to the phone. Any idea what needs to be done? Please help.
