Exclamation How to Re-install Play Store on China ROM

We have a Note 8 china ROM with google services installed via GetApps chinese google installer.

Its play store was uninstalled by mistake and some google apps like calendar dont work anymore.

I tried re-installing using google installer but it'll get stuck at installation of google play services.

Any assistance appreciated. Thanks


UPDATE: Solved easily. Simply manually uninstalled google play services, then re-run the chinese google installer.

Was intending to try that but was afraid sideloading in this manner may interfere with the chinese google installer and make things worse. Also google play may not get auto updated. So thought to check with you guys first.

China ROMS with sideloaded GApps installer means no safetynet so those banking apps, google pay, etc will not be able to work?

Bank apps, Singpass no problem. My family members use theirs daily for school/work.

These are the only issues if you need them:

- Foodpanda Location fix: phone settings -> location -> GPS only. After fpanda login, can re-enable high accuracy location.
- Netflix: cannot install
- Google pay: cannot setup

There may be more details in another thread (pls search)
