Manually install Google Playstore?

I bought my Huawei G520 direct from China and forgot Chinese dont like Google so no Google apps!!!!!

I just want Google Playstore & G+ app installing

I managed to root my phone but not been able to flash anything (too complicated)

Anyway, after playing around for weeks I managed to install Google manually by using Root Explorer & adding:

OneTime Initializer.apk
GoogleLoginService.apk
Google Services Framework.apk
Setup Wizard.apk
Gmail.apk

directly into my root\systems\apps folder

Restart my phone - login to Gmail & voila - totally googled and able to install any/all other google apps normally e.g.

Google playstore (sometimes called Phonesky.apk)
G+
ContactSyncAdaptor
CalendarSyncAdaptor
Chrome
Play movies
Google music

Anyway - I done this few times previously without issue - but recently messed up my camera and tried it again and it fails:

Same as always - reset my phone - rooted - Used Root Explorer and added:

OneTime Initializer.apk
GoogleLoginService.apk
Google Services Framework.apk
Setup Wizard.apk
Gmail.apk

directly into root\systems\apps folder

...and this is where it seems to fail - reboot the phone and get "Gmail has stopped working" and cant login

this has never been a problem before

Anybody make sense of this stuff and how I'm going to get Google apps (namely Playstore & G+) working on my Chinese mobile?


Is just 'copying' an apk file to system enough or should i still run them? - dunno - used to work fine - now it doesn't
