[Tutorials] How to recertify your Custom ROM Android phone for Google apps and services

It was a sad day for all sideloaders when Google announced it will block the Play Store and Gapps suite from all uncertified Android devices. Remember, Android is Open-Sourced and Google's Android Apps are Closed-Sourced. Luckily, Google lifted the 100 registration limit and now you can recertify your device every re-flash & wipe and enjoy Google's apps and services.

Don't know the steps? Here's how to do that:

1. Download the Device ID app, and install it on your phone or tablet. It's also available on the Play Store, but, obviously, you won't have access if your gear is de-certified;

2. Run it to check your Google Play Service Framework ID (GSF), note it down;

3. Go to Google's device registration site, and input the GSF Android ID string in the field, tap Register;

4. Your device should get whitelisted again, but if you do a factory reset, you might have to repeat the procedure again.
