Introducing Open GApps for Stock
This package aims to help everyone that wants to integrate updates to the GApps into their ROM without the risks of Titanium Backup.
It was originally a fork of the work of TKruzze and it's now part of the Open GApps project.
Some things changed from the old PA GApps package to accommodate the installation on stock ROMs. The largest part of the changes is not visible to the user, but I would like to list them here:
• All the libchrome libs from /system/lib and /system/lib64 are now removed.
• The sizes of the apps are now directly measured from the zip, thus resulting in a more accurate estimation of the occupied space.
• The Google Email client (the one that became a stub following an update on the Play store) will be removed if Gmail is going to be installed.
• Android System WebView has been added to the Stock package.

The gapps-config functionality is still here and can be used to exclude some apps or to reduce the package to a smaller size.

GApps for Stock joined the Open GApps project and became Open GApps for Stock

It's just like the standard Open GApps stock package with the added ability to flash over Stock ROMs. This new package is called "fornexus" and is intended to use on Nexus devices with Stock ROMs from Google. Open GApps for stock is now included in the main code of the OpenGApps project, so you can now flash the stock package or smaller ones directly on your Nexus device. The compatibility with other ROMs is not guaranteed, but you can ask for help here (and not in the Open GApps thread) providing the debug logs (found in the same folder of the ZIP file) and I can tell you if your problem derives from a complete incompatibility or can be solved by me.

Download available now! (Post #3)

You can find the latest version from the website OpenGApps.org
You can download now any package and if a Stock ROM is detected, it will switch to the "for Stock" mode.

So are these gapps only for version 5.0.1? They will not flash on 5.1.1.

Bravo cumpà

A few suggestions:

- Mega.co.nz links are quite hard to download from smartphone (you need the app, it doesn't work using the browser)... I suggest to use androidfilehost instead

- Take a look at http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...ation-t3098071 ... maybe you can join efforts and create a team

You don't need the app. Just enable "request desktop site" in Chrome settings.
