I'm currently trying out Genymotion and boy, it's so much faster than the ADT emulator.
But I need to install Google Play to download some apps into it. How do I do this?

# How To Add Google Apps and ARM Support to Genymotion v2.0+ #
Note(Feb 2nd): Contrary to previous reports, it's been discovered that Android 4.4 does in fact work with ARM translation, although it is buggy. Follow the steps the same as before, just make sure you download the 4.4 GApps.
UPDATE-v1.1: I've gotten more up-to-date builds of libhoudini and have updated the ZIP file. This fixes a lot of app crashes and hangs. Just flash the new one, and it should work.
This guide is for getting back both ARM translation/support (this is what causes the "INSTALL_FAILED_CPU_ABI_INCOMPATIBLE" errors) and Google Play apps in your Genymotion VM.
adb reboot) or an app like ROM Toolbox. If nescessary you can simply close the VM window, but I don't recommend it.
I've tested this on Genymotion v2.0.1-v2.1 using Android 4.3 and 4.4 images. Feel free to skip the GApps steps if you only want the ARM support. It'll work perfectly fine by itself.
Old Zips: v1.0. Don't download these as they will not solve your issues. It is left for archival and experimental purposes.
