Install GooglePlay in emulator


I am using the info from

1. Go to and get the latest .zip compatible with your target device.
    Note the “Not compatible with x.x.x!” remarks

2. Start your emulator:

cd %LocalAppData%\Android\android-sdk\tools
emulator -avd VM_NAME_HERE -partition-size 500 -no-audio -no-boot-anim

Then use the following commands:

cd %LocalAppData%\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools

# Remount in rw mode
adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system

# Allow writing to app directory on system partition
adb shell chmod 777 /system/app

# Install following apk
adb push GoogleLoginService.apk /system/app/.
adb push GoogleServicesFramework.apk /system/app/.
adb push Phonesky.apk /system/app/. # Vending.apk in older versions
adb shell rm /system/app/SdkSetup*
