[Please help] Install Gapps on Gionee M6S PLUS Chinese model

#1

Hi,
I have bought Chinese version Gionee M6S plus (64 GB ROM) and was not knowing that Gapps will not be available. I want to install gapps as I am in India. I have also tried installing apks like service framework,account manager,play store but in vain and it crashes every time I open . I want to root this phone only to install gapps. Can any one please post the link how to install Gapps or help as how to root this version of phone ?  

Thanks in Advance

You'll need to first flash a custom recovery then gapps.zip in the recovery

No, it won't work. You'll need a custom recovery ported for M6S Plus

First, dump your firmware in scatter format using Miracle Box @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13347.html
Upload the recovery.bin and scatter file

Hi, Thanks for the miracle box link. I want to definitely try because without google play store it is tough to use this phone. But Before trying I have few queries as I am little bit afraid.
The tutorial mentioned is for mediatek devices without root access. M6S PLUS is snapdragon chipset. So do I need to choose snapdragon tab in miracle box ? And if yes what other options in that tab I should select ?
2nd query is I have read that phone may become dead if by any chance USB cable is removed while reading. (Of course I will not remove cable purposefully!!) Mine is non removable battery and I am worried about it. If at any point while reading I get error will my phone become dead forever ?
Please help
Thanks
