This is an early tutorial. This is currently useless in some cases since Google Play Games does not work but hope it will work in the future

Installing unsigned APK is possible though VirtualXposed without root but very big disappointment is Google Play Games and games tied to Play Games crashes because it does not work with microG yet... big big disappointment

First I thought it was VirtualXposed issue so I created an issue about it:
Google Play Games instantly crash on launch · Issue #589 · android-hacker/VirtualXposed

But then someone mentioned another issue
Support for official Google Play Games apk [$150] · Issue #163 · microg/android_packages_apps_GmsCore
The bounty to make Google Play Games work is $150.

Please help make it more awareness by posting a comment on those issues if you want.

How to install unsigned APK (VirtualXposed)

Download one of VirtualXposed releases, doesn't matter what version
android-hacker/VirtualXposed

Launch VirtualXposed

Tap on white appdrawer icon to open Settings (weird design)

DO NOT install Google services yet. It will cause crashes since Google Play Games is not supported

Check "Allow to install apk without signatures" in order to install unsigned APK

Or you can open apk in file manager apps and it will ask you to open with

The installer dialog will show, click Install

If it crashes, enable Storage permission in system settings

That's all. You have installed unsigned APK though VirtualXposed

If you have more infomation regarding installing Unsigned APK with Play Games support for non-rooted devices, please let me know!
