Hacker gets Google Play Store loaded to Windows 10 Mobile

Google Play Windows 10 MobileWell, it didn’t take long!! We saw Android apps running on Windows 10 Mobile and then we saw enthusiasts sideloading APKs even with Google Services requirement to Windows 10 Mobile running devices.

But wait there is more!! A hacker over XDA-developers has claimed to sideload Google Play Store to Windows 10 Mobile and has posted above screenshots to show that it is indeed working. It seems one has to still use the old Wconnect method to sideload Google Play Store APK, but with some extra steps as told by the hacker.

1. After wconnect open CMD and

 adb push FILENAME /data/local/tmp
 adb shell
 chmod 644 /data/local/tmp/FILENAME if file is .apk (chmod 755 if this is busybox file, and 6755 if this is su file)

(Ofc replace “APKNAME” too file name that you want to copy to system partition)
2. After this go to phone file explorer, press search button and type “c” and open “Documents”.
3. Press arrow in right top for back to “C:”.
4. Now go to C:\Data\Users\DefApps\APPDATA\Local\Aow\Data\Local \Tmp and copy previously sideloaded files to
a) C:\Data\Users\DefApps\APPDATA\Local\Aow\RootFS\sys tem\APP if you want install apk to system partition
b) C:\Data\Users\DefApps\APPDATA\Local\Aow\RootFS\sys tem\BIN if you want install binares
4. Reboot phone.

If all the steps above sound too complex then you may need to wait a bit and may be someone else finds easier way to accomplish this. Though it may be very risky and we don’t recommend it.
