the process of drag&drop the zip, outputs some a series of messages
ending with one suggesting you should restart (close and re-run) the machine – you can delay this action until you finish the last of the drag&drop actions.
how to enter your gmail details (to add your Google account)?
Simple: open and fill-in your credentials,
while you are working (before you’ve done the restart) you would probably be shown the following message(s) regarding Google-services the ends unexpectedly:
its ok, once you’ll be done, and restart the emulator (close the window, and start the machine again) this issue will be fixed,
the reason is that, although Genymotion saying “flash completed” it contains no actual recovery partition and it actually just extracts and follow the flash file instructions, installing the files to the locations and running daemon on the boot-loader phase, so, really it all be ok once you’ll be restarting your emulator :)
In this example the Operation-System is SDK version 19 (Android 4.4.4).
Some of the most recent apps from the market won’t be installed unless you’ll update the Google components, the most important is the google services, and google webview.
although the ZIPs are easy to find on the web,
here are unmodified, original version, works on S3 (4.4.2) Note3, S4, S5 (4.4.4) would probably won’t work on lollipop (5.0.1-5.1.1) and marshmallow (6.*)
