Install Playstore on Android 9 image

I'm on Windows (not really, linux users, but I decided to do this) and I'm sad that this platform seems to get zero attention.

1. Get the adb tools here:

2. Enable the secret Developer Options. 
Open "Settings"
Scroll down to "System "
Select "About phone"
Tap Build number 7 times in quick succession 
You will see a message appear that says Developer Options are enabled
Now go back and you’ll see Developer Options listed
With that out of the way, we can enable USB debugging.
Open "Settings"
Go to "System" > "Developer options"
Scroll until you find USB debugging
Toggle the switch on

3. Connect the SBC to your Windows comp 

4. Navigate to the directory where you unzipped the platform tools and open a cmd window and check that the adb connection is working

adb devices

If you get a response you're ready.

5. Get the apks
now ready to use "adb push" to copy the PlayStore, Google Play Services and
Google Services Framework apks to /system/priv-app

files to download:
[Google Services Framework 9-5272573 (Android 9.0+):]
download here..
rename to : Gsf.apk

[Google Play services 15.1.81 (100400-239627737) (100400):,armeabi-v7a)(nodpi)]
download here..
rename to : Playservices.apk

[Google Play Store 14.2.58-all [0] [PR] 239277684 (nodpi) (Android 4.1+):,armeabi-v7a,mips,mips64,x86,x86_64)(nodpi)]
download here..
rename to : Playstore.apk

6. Install the Google apps

adb device
adb root
adb remount
adb push Gsf.apk /system/priv-app/Gsf/Gsf.apk
adb install -g -r Gsf.apk
adb push Playstore.apk /system/priv-app/Playstore/Playstore.apk
adb install -g -r Playstore.apk
adb push Playservices.apk /system/priv-app/Playservices/Playservices.apk
adb install -g -r Playservices.apk

-g: Grant all permissions listed in the app manifest....
-r:  Replace existing application, keeping its data.

7. Then reboot and go to the android settings, apps and give all the permissions to the apks installed.

8. The following commands should also be executed on the RockPro64 to prevent occasional Google Play Services errors: So run the beginning commands and get into adb shell and run these commands:

adb shell

pm grant android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION

pm grant android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION

9. Reboot again.
