  • Google Play Service will be updated after first successfuly login in Play Store

Important

  • You must not update WebView to latest version, or Chrome will crush, so do any apps using WebView (say Youversion)
  • Disable Google Play auto-app updates
  • If you accidientally update it, you may need to remove it manually via third party apps (Say 应用宝)
    • Or try adb
    • Enable Developer mode by hitting Setting -> About phone -> Build number 7 times
    • Then go to Setting -> Advanced settings -> Developer options, and enable USB debugging
    • Install adb
      • macOS Terminal: brew cask install android-platform-tools
      • Windows: Please Google it
    • Connect USB to your macOS or Windows
    • Terminal dnter adb devices and you should see something like List of devices attached / **** device
    • Download file WebViewGoogle.apk pulled from Yota3 to local
    • Terminal install the app via adb install WebViewGoogle.apk (make sure you’ve changed dir to where you downloaded WebViewGoogle.apk)
