    There are 2 things you can do that are almost always guaranteed to fix these types of problems. Please do not post a support request until you have tried these first.
    1. Make certain you are using the latest version of TWRP Recovery for your device.
      - Other Recovery types are not officially supported
    2. Reinstall your ROM and GApps as part of a 'Clean' install
      - This will remove any data corruption that might be causing your issue
    A 'Clean' install consists of the following:
    1. Factory Reset (or manually wipe (format) Data partition - Internal Storage wipe is NOT necessary)
    2. Manually wipe (format) your System partition
    3. Flash your ROM
    4. Flash GApps package
    5. Flash any Addon Modules (optional)
    6. Wipe the Dalvik & cache
    7. Reboot

    NOTE: YOU WILL LOSE ALL OF YOUR DATA AND APPLICATION SETTINGS using this method. Be sure to do a nandroid backup prior in case you want to restore later.
  2. I'm having a problem with my GApps install. What information do you need to help me?
    At a MINIMUM you will need to post your tk_gapps_log.txt (Attach it to your post while logged in to XDA from a web browser), where the community can try to help you resolve the problem. However, the best method to receive support would be to post your debug logs (tk_gapps_debug_logs.tar.gz), using the same method. You will find both of these logs in the same folder as the GApps zip file, after the installer has completed.

    As with most support forums, the more work you do up front and the more information you provide, the better the feedback you're likely to receive. If you're not willing to put any effort on your end, you'll likely receive nothing from the forum, either.
  3. I'm getting a 'Status Error 6' when I try and install these GApps with CWM. What can I do to fix it?
    It likely means you're using CWM v6.0.4.7 Recovery, which is NOT compatible with any of our GApps packages.

    The problem is due to CWM v6.0.4.7 overwriting the installation script, thereby making it impossible for the installer to do its work. Thankfully, CWM realized the error in doing this and fixed the issue in newer versions. This 'bug' is only found in CWM v6.0.4.7, so even an older version should work, although upgrading your Recovery would be preferable to downgrading.

    Also, since CWM is no longer being updated by its original developer (ClockWordMod), it is highly recommended (and required if you want official support) to change to an actively supported Recovery, such as TWRP Recovery
  4. My GApps install failed with Error Code: XX. What does this code mean?
    Error codes have been added to the installer since many users, apparently, don't know how to scroll back through the recovery window and read the actual error message that the installer provided. While there is also a detailed explanation of the error (along with a solution) provided in the log file (tk_gapps_log.txt or tk_<Addon-Name>_addon_log.txt), Error Codes have been added as a final attempt to communicate the error with the user.

    Using the information below, you will find a current list of the Error Codes that the install may encounter - along with a recommended solution:
    • #20 - Incorrect (incompatible) ROM Version: ROM is not compatible with the GApps package or Addon
      Solution: Read your tk_gapps_log.txt (or tk_<Addon-Name>_addon_log.txt) for details on the incompatibility

    • #40 - NON-TK GApps Currently Installed: Your device has an incompatible GApps package currently installed
      Solution: Read FAQ #7 for an explanation and step by step instructions to fix

    • #64 - 64-bit (incompatible) Device: Your device has been detected as a 64-bit device. These GApps are only compatible with 32-bit devices
      Solution: Find yourself a 64-bit compatible GApps package

    • #70 - Insufficient Space Available in System Partition: Your device does not have sufficient space available in the system partition to install this GApps package or Addon
      Solution: Read FAQ #6 for a detailed explanation and alternative options

    • #30 - First-time Clean install requirement not met (Addon Error ONLY): This Addon can only be installed FOR THE FIRST TIME as part of a 'Clean install' GApps installation
      Solution: Read FAQ #5 for a detailed explanation and instructions to fix

    • #44 - NO GApps Installed (Addon Error ONLY): This Addon requires that you have a GApps package installed BEFORE the addon can be installed
      Solution: Install a TK GApps package BEFORE installing this Addon

    • #50 - Incompatible Device (Addon Error ONLY): Your device has been detected as incompatible with this Addon
      Solution: Install the app from the Play Store as it is incompatible with your device if installed in system partition

  5. I read that 'Google Camera and Keyboard can only be installed during a Clean Install or as an update to an existing GApps Installation.' What does this mean?
    Experience has shown us that users who install these applications FOR THE FIRST TIME during a 'Clean install' GApps installation almost never have issues or problems with these apps. However, there have been several reports of users experiencing FC's or other strange behavior when they have tried to install these apps later (with GApps), after their device has been set up.

    To ensure the best possible user experience, our installers will only allow these applications to be installed FOR THE FIRST TIME as part of a 'Clean' install (data wiped) installation. Updates to an existing System (GApps) installation will also install fine, plus you can still freely update these apps from the Play Store and have the GApps installer update them later with the next GApps update.

    A 'Clean' install consists of the following:
    1. Factory Reset (or manually wipe (format) Data partition - Internal Storage wipe is NOT necessary)
    2. Manually wipe (format) your System partition
    3. Flash your ROM
    4. Flash GApps package
    5. Flash any Addon Modules (optional)
    6. Wipe the Dalvik & cache
    7. Reboot

    NOTE: YOU WILL LOSE ALL OF YOUR DATA AND APPLICATION SETTINGS using this method. Be sure to do a nandroid backup prior in case you want to restore later.
  6. My GApps install failed with the message 'Insufficient storage space available in System partition'. My device has 16GB (or more) of storage available. How can this be?
    Your ROM and GApps are installed in the system partition. The system partition is a separate, fixed-size, stand-alone partition of storage that varies in size by device. (READ HERE for a complete explanation of the Android File System Structure.) While today's newer devices often come with 1.5GB (or more) of storage in the system partition, most devices that are more than a year old have 1GB or less of system storage available. This, coupled with the fact that Google's applications have doubled in size in the past 18 months, means that your device may not be able to accommodate our larger GApps packages.

    The reason you won't get this error message with other GApps packages is because our installers use a System Partition memory detection system to insure a successful installation and the ability to restore GApps after a ROM update. Most other GApps installers do no such checking and leave the responsibility on you to know if your device has sufficient space available. In addition, our installer will generate a detailed log that will show you exactly how the system space on your device is being used. You will find this log (tk_gapps_log.txt) in the same folder as the GApps zip file, after the installer has completed. Please refer to it for complete details.

    You can choose to install a smaller GApps package or you may want to take advantage of our exclusive Advanced Features & Options and remove certain apps you do not use or need (Remember, you can always install these apps later from the Play Store).

    If you would like further assistance, please post your tk_gapps_log.txt so we can best give you what options you may wish to consider
  7. I'd like to switch to TK GApps from another GApps provider. What do I need to do?
    TK GApps can only be installed on top of an existing TK GApps installation, OR after wiping your system partition. This is to prevent conflicts that could arise from switching GApps packages. If you use the method outlined below, you won't lose any of your data or application settings

    In order to switch to TK GApps from another GApps provider or remove an Addon Module you're no longer using, you will need to (from Recovery - In the order listed):
    1. Manually wipe (format) your System partition
    2. Flash your ROM
    3. Flash GApps package
    4. Flash any Addon Modules (optional)
    5. Wipe the Dalvik & cache
    6. Reboot


    NOTE: You won't lose any of your data or application settings using this method. This method MUST be used when switching to TK GApps from another GApps provider.
  8. What do I need to do if I want to change packages (i.e. Stock > Mini or Mini > Nano) or change the apps I'm installing?
    The short answer is you don't need to do anything besides flash the new package.

    All of our GApps packages allow you to change install options or switch packages at any time with no requirements on your end. The installer will handle all the behind-the-scenes work to accomplish this.
  9. Can I use these GApps to update the Google Apps on my Stock ROM?
    The short answer is No. TK GApps have always been designed to be installed with custom Android AOSP based ROM's. If you're using a stock ROM, you should continue to only update your apps through the Google Play Store.

    With the recent update to our GApps 2.0 installer, we added a system check to only allow GApps updates to an existing TK GApps installation. This change was made to prevent the possible existence of conflicting Google apps (from other sources) that might interfere with TK GApps after restarting your device. Since stock ROM's already come with GApps installed, this means the installer will not be able to perform an update install on stock ROM's.
  10. I'm having problems with Google Camera after installing Google Stock GApps (or GoogleCamera Addon). Please fix it!
    While Google does say that Google Camera 'Works on phones and tablets running Android 4.4 and up', they clearly didn't intend to include every KitKat or Lollipop ROM on XDA. They likely meant this to include devices running stock or factory versions of Android with proper drivers and kernels. In addition, Photo Sphere and Panorama require a gyro sensor and Photo Sphere, Panorama, and Lens Blur require at least 1 GB RAM. And HDR+ is only available on the Nexus 5 and 6, according to the Play Store description

    While even legacy devices are able to run KitKat or Lollipop with a custom ROM, many of these ROM's do not have properly updated KitKat or Lollipop drivers and/or kernels. Instead, they're using modded, patched, or hacked versions of older drivers and kernels. It's likely these situations that lead to problems and/or incompatibilities with Google's camera app. This means that there's NOTHING the OP can do to fix this problem for you. Your only likely option is to NOT use the Google Camera on your device or try installing it from the Play Store instead.
  11. TK GApps packages are so big. Will I have any space left over for my stuff after I install?
    TK GApps will use LESS of your device's available storage than using a 'bare bones' GApps and downloading the apps from the Play Store. This is because GApps are installed entirely in the System partition, leaving the Data (User) partition for your non-Google apps. Since the System partition is a fixed size, installing GApps here uses storage that would otherwise be left unused (and unavailable for other use).
  12. Why are TK GApps packages so much larger than other GApps packages?
    TK GApps are larger than other GApps packages for a couple of reasons:
    1. The main reason is that all our GApps packages include the PROPER version of Google Play services for YOUR device. Instead of installing a generic, obsolete, or a potentially improper version, our installer detects the hardware dpi of your device and then installs the PROPER version of Google Play services that was intended for your device. This means that our GApps packages must include multiple versions, which significantly increases the size of our packages.
    2. Our Google Stock GApps include all of the Google Apps that come standard on a Google Nexus device. Since our intention is to enhance the Google Android experience, we don't think it makes sense to limit the apps included in our GApps package.
  13. Is it necessary to reinstall GApps and/or addon modules EVERY time I update my ROM?
    Probably not. If your ROM supports addon.d backup functionality (most ROM's do), it's not necessary to install GApps with each ROM update - as long as you don't manually wipe the System partition. The backup script will backup your installed GApps (or Addon modules) and restore them after your ROM has been updated. However, it is a good idea to install an updated GApps from time to time as functionality may be added or improvements made.
  14. What if an app is updated in the Play Store? Should I install the update or wait for a GApps update?
    It's perfectly fine to install any and all updates from the Play Store. Android will automatically manage multiple versions of an app installed with GApps or from the Play Store. Note, however, that beginning with Lollipop (Android 5.x), Android only removes the data version (installed from Play Store or manually installed) if it's OLDER than the version installed with GApps.
  15. Can I install an updated GApps package without updating my ROM?
    Certainly! Simply install the GApps package directly from Recovery and wipe Dalvik and cache after flashing the updated GApps.
  16. How come you don't include {MyFavoriteApp} in TK GApps?
    For an application to be included in TK GApps, it has to meet the following criteria:
    1. It must be a Google App (GApps = Google Apps.)
    2. It must be an application that comes standard on Google Nexus devices.
    3. It must be a globally used app (not language or country specific)
  17. I found a newer version of {MyFavoriteApp} on APKMirror.com. How come you didn't include it in the latest GApps?
    Just because an apk is uploaded to APKMirror or has an article written on Android Police, doesn't mean it will automatically be included in TK GApps. Only apps that can be verified that Google has intended for public release will be included. The primary method used to determine the latest version of an app is the Google Play Store date, which HAS ALWAYS listed the date of the most recent public release for the most current version of Android. So, if you find an updated apk on APKMirror and don't see it included in TK GApps, it's likely a leak or preview version. Of course, you're always free to sideload the leaks and previews on your own, should you desire.
  18. There are a couple of apps I never use. Can I uninstall them?
    Using our exclusive Advanced Features & Options, you can actually bypass the installation or remove any GApps installed application from your device. You could also choose to freeze / disable the app. This will prevent the app from using valuable system resources and leaves the unused app lying dormant in the System partition where it's not using any of your available storage. Plus, the app will remain disabled even after you update GApps.
  19. How do I Freeze / Disable an app?
    If you have Titanium Backup (highly recommended!) you can simply "Freeze" the app from the Backup/Restore screen. You can accomplish the same thing by going to Settings > Apps > {scroll to ALL} > {select app} > Disable.
  20. Can I use Titanium Backup to integrate GApps updates into the ROM?
    It is NOT recommended to use Titanium Backup to integrate GApps updates into the ROM. The reason is, using Titanium Backup to integrate GApps updates is going to be hit or miss, at best. That's because Titanium Backup does not integrate the supporting libraries (*.so files). Therefore, if an application update includes updated libraries, the integration will fail or fail to offer complete functionality. The reason it "seems" to work sometimes is that supporting libraries are often not updated when the application is updated. In those cases, the integration will work fine because the older libraries are the correct ones. If an application doesn't have supporting libraries then Titanium Backup integration works fine. However, our recommendation is to NOT use Integration.

Info 2 Advanced Features & Options
ADVANCED FEATURES & OPTIONS


The features outlined below are COMPLETELY OPTIONAL and designed to allow advanced users the ability to modify the default behavior of the GApps installers. Without the use of these options, the installers will function exactly as outlined in Post #1 above.

INTRODUCTION
To modify the default behavior of the GApps installer, create a text file called .gapps-config or gapps-config.txt (.gapps-config will take precedence) and place it in the same folder as the GApps zip or in /sdcard/TK-GApps. Additionally, if your device has a Persist partition, you may place the file there as well. Note that the zip folder, followed by /sdcard/TK-GApps will be checked first. Once you've created the gapps-config file, simply type in the Key Word options you want from the lists below.

TESTING
To perform a test installation that will only simulate an install, add the Key Word Test to your gapps-config. The installer will perform all system space calculations and generate a detailed log tk_gapps_log.txt (in the same folder as your gapps-config), but WILL NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES to your device. This should be helpful for trying to find just the right combination of apps that will work with your particular device.

DEBUGGING
By default, the installer will generate Debug Logs - tk_gapps_debug_logs.tar.gz - a compressed file that contains a set of files to help troubleshoot any problems you might experience with the install. This file can be easily attached to any post on XDA, making it easy for you to provide important information to help troubleshoot any issues you're having. You will find tk_gapps_debug_logs.tar.gz in the same folder as your tk_gapps_log.txt. You may disable this feature by adding the Key Word NoDebug to your gapps-config.

PRESETS
You can use Presets with any GApps package. This allows you to transform any GApps package into one of its 'little brothers' by adding one of the following Key Words to your gapps-config. This will transform ALL INSTALLER BEHAVIOR (including default removals AND applications available for install) - effectively turning it into a new GApps package.
Valid Key Word options are:
FullGApps - To downsize the following package to Full Modular GApps. [Stock]
MiniGApps - To downsize any of the following packages to Mini Modular GApps. [Stock/Full]
MicroGApps - To downsize any of the following packages to Micro Modular GApps. [Stock/Full/Mini]
NanoGApps - To downsize any of the following packages to Nano Modular GApps. [Stock/Full/Mini/Micro]
PicoGApps - To downsize any of the following packages to Pico Modular GApps. [Stock/Full/Mini/Micro/Nano]
NOTE: ALL BEHAVIOR OF THE INSTALLER WILL BE TRANSFORMED TO THE NEW PRESET, including default removals AND applications available for install.

INCLUDING or EXCLUDING APPLICATIONS
You can choose either the apps you WANT installed (called an Include Install) or the apps you DON'T WANT installed (default behavior - called an Exclude Install). To select ONLY the apps you WANT installed, add the Key Word Include to your gapps-config file. The installer will now install ONLY THOSE APPS you have listed in your gapps-config. (Since the default behavior is an Exclude install, it is not necessary to add Exclude to your gapps-config). Stock/AOSP removals (see below) function the same whether you're doing an Include or Exclude Install.

Type the application Key Word (name) you want to Exclude/Include inside your gapps-config file.
Valid Key Word options are:
AndroidPay - To Exclude/Include Android Pay [Stock/Full]
Books - To Exclude/Include Google Play Books [Stock/Full]
CalendarGoogle - To Exclude/Include Google Calendar [Stock/Full/Mini/Micro]
CalSync - To Exclude/Include Google Calendar Sync (installed by default when Google Calendar is NOT being installed) [Stock/Full/Mini/Micro/Nano/Pico]

Talkback - To Exclude/Include TalkBack [Stock/Full]
WebviewGoogle - To Exclude/Include Android System WebView [Stock]
YouTube - To Exclude/Include YouTube [Stock/Full/Mini]

STOCK/AOSP APPLICATION REMOVALS
To manage the removal of certain Stock/AOSP applications from your ROM, type the application Key Word (name) inside your gapps-config file.
Valid Key Word options are:
Browser - To remove the Stock/AOSP Browser
CalendarStock - To remove the Stock/AOSP Calendar Application (automatically removed when Google Calendar is installed)
CameraStock - To remove the Stock/AOSP Camera Application (automatically removed when Google Camera is installed)
ClockStock - To remove the Stock/AOSP Clock Application (automatically removed when Google Clock is installed)
CMAudioFX - To remove the Stock CM AudioFX Application
CMEleven - To remove the Stock CM Music Application
CMFileManager - To remove the Stock CM File Manager
CMWallpapers - To remove the Stock CM Wallpapers
DashClock - To remove the Stock DashClock Application (found in certain ROM's)
Email - To remove the Stock/AOSP Email Application
ExchangeStock - To remove the Stock/AOSP Exchange Services (automatically removed when Google Exchange Services is installed)
FMRadio - To remove the Stock FM Radio Application (not found on all devices or ROM's)
Gallery - To remove the Stock/AOSP Gallery
KeyboardStock - To remove the Stock/AOSP Keyboard (automatically removed when Google Keyboard is installed)
Launcher - To remove the Stock/AOSP Launcher(s)
MMS - To remove the Stock/AOSP SMS Application
PicoTTS - To remove the Stock/AOSP PicoTTS
SimToolKit - To remove the Stock/AOSP SimToolKit Application
Studio - To remove the Stock/AOSP Movie Studio Application
SykoPath - To remove SykoPath OverlayManager (found in certain ROM's)
WebviewStock - To remove the Stock/AOSP Webview Application (automatically removed when Google WebView is installed)

SPECIAL RULES FOR GOOGLE STOCK GAPPS
To prevent the default removal of the Stock/AOSP apps (listed below) when using Google Stock GApps, type the Key Word option preceded by a '+' as shown below:
+Browser - To bypass the automatic removal of Stock/AOSP Browser [Stock ONLY]
+Email - To bypass the automatic removal of Stock/AOSP Email Application [Stock ONLY]
+Gallery - To bypass the automatic removal of Stock/AOSP Gallery Application [Stock ONLY]
+Launcher - To bypass the automatic removal of Stock/AOSP Launcher(s) [Stock ONLY]
+MMS - To bypass the automatic removal of Stock/AOSP SMS Application [Stock ONLY]
+PicoTTS - To bypass the automatic removal of the Stock/AOSP PicoTTS app [Stock ONLY]

Note: While the above special '+' Key Words are intended for Google Stock GApps, they can also be safely used with any of the other GApps packages as well.

NOTE: The installer will automatically NOT remove the Stock/AOSP application if its Google counterpart is NOT being installed. For example, if you are NOT installing Hangouts or Messenger, then the Stock MMS app will NOT automatically be removed (although you can still force its removal by adding it to your gapps-config). The same is true for Google Calendar|Stock Calendar, Google Camera|Stock Camera, Google Clock|Stock Clock, Gmail|Stock Email, Google Exchange Services|Stock Exchange Services, Google Keyboard|Stock Keyboard, Photos|Stock Gallery, Google Now Launcher|Stock Launcher, GoogleTTS|PicoTTS, and Google Webview|Stock Webview.

UNIVERSAL APPLICATION REMOVALS
In addition to the Stock/AOSP Removals above, we have recently added Universal Application Removals to the installer. Universal Removals allow you to remove ANY system app (folder and all) on your device or ROM.
To use this feature, enclose the name of the apk in parentheses inside your gapps-config file.
See below for complete details:
For example, to remove the Spare Parts app found in many ROM's, simply add (SpareParts) to your gapps-config. When using this feature, keep the following in mind:
  • Adding the .apk extension is not required (however, it may be added if you prefer)
  • Works for all apps in system/app or system/priv-app
  • Removes the apk and entire contents of the containing folder (if installed in its own subfolder)
  • Removal is also added to the addon.d backup script so the removals will also be applied if you update your ROM
  • Gives you the ability to do some really bad things to your device, so DO A BACKUP before trying
  • While Core GApps components may also be removed using this method, it is NEVER recommended and only intended for testing
    - Removal of Core GApps will take place AFTER the GApps installation process has completed
    - No support is offered should you choose to remove Core GApps components
WARNING: Because this feature gives you the ability to remove files that may be important to the proper function of your device, it is only recommended for very experienced users who know what they are doing.

MISCELLANEOUS
  • You can add notes or comments to your gapps-config using a #. Anything following a # will be ignored until the end of that line.
    For example:
    The line below would be completely ignored
    # Exclude Search

    While the line below would process the first Search Key Word (since it appeared BEFORE the '#')
    Search # Exclude Search
  • You can override the automatic device dpi detection system and force the installer to install specific dpi versions of Google Play services and other dpi specific apps by using the ForceDPIxxx option, where xxx must be 240, 320, 480, 640, or 000 (for NODPI).
    This will override the installer's hardware based detection system and force the installer to detect your device as the specific DPI you choose.
    - Use of this option is only recommended for testing purposes

  • "Protection from Stupidity" is built into the GApps Installer. To prevent you from accidentally leaving yourself with no keyboard, Launcher, MMS, or Webview app when you start your device, the installer WILL NOT ALLOW you to remove the Stock/AOSP Keyboard, Launcher, MMS, or Webview app if you are not also installing a Google version of these apps. You can, however, override this protection by adding the Key Word Override to your gapps-config. Be very careful when using this option and make certain you have a replacement app already installed on your device before using this option.


Note: Case, order, spaces, or using separate lines does not matter when using gapps-config.
