Guide to Install Google Play Store without flashing

Dear fellow Mi Note Pro/Mi 4c

I know your beloved device’s bootloader is locked, and there is no way to flash Google Apps via custom recovery.

For those less fortunate owners whom had a bricked in your devices &/or awaiting for the unlock code, please kindly be patience.
You might wish to take a read at this thread for more information.

Ok, for those more fortunate owners, if you desperate to access to Google Play store, here is how. I had personally tested this app and had Google Play services up and working. There is no issue running other Google APPs, e.g. Mail, Hangout, Fit, Chrome). And even applying 6.12.25 OTA updates, the Google Play services is still intact and running.

*NOTE: On a side note: I wasnt able to flash Google app via TWRP recovery on my Mi Note running CN DEV MM ROM 6.1.21. I had flashed with Open GApp-6.0- package (nano, micro & mini) , none of it works, and end up having the stock launcher overwritten and doesnot start up, (But there is no boot loops)
