Default [Problem] After Flashing Android 4.2 GAPPS

Hi everyone, i just found out that Android 4.2 JellyBean apps like Calendar, Camera, etc.

I just flashed the .zip archive using CWMRecovery and it was OK according to the flashing process feedback dialog.

After flashing, all my core apps are "Force Closing". Launcher, Galery, Camera, Calendar... I had to install nova launcher in order to actually be able to "use" my phone.

Any idea of what might be happening here? Is there any log i can check for troubleshooting ?

I can either revert to the last gapps (if i manage to find them), or , try to fix this crashes.

Any solution in mind ?

I'm using the 4.1.2 Jellybean OS Version (GSM) Yakju on a Galaxy Nexus ofc. Stock rom

Here is the link to the article where i've found the how to : http://phandroid.com/2012/11/06/andr...kage-download/

Hi. I'm using that exact download of gapps with no problem whatsoever. I clean-flashed CNA 3.6.6 (based on AOSP 4.1.1), the gapps, and Trinity A67 kernel. All the gapps that I've used have worked without any FC's at all. Not sure what the problem could be.

I'm using 4.1.2 Jellybean, that can be a problem. Not sure tho.

I've manage to fix the Galery and Camera apps already by simply renaming the GoogleGalery.apk to GoogleGalery2.apk on the System/app folder.

Still crashing : Launcher, Calendar and Clock

UPDATE: Fixed Calendar, Clock and Gmail apps by simply appending a "2" after the name on the System/app folder.

New Names: CalendarGoogle2.apk , DeskClockGoogle2.apk, Gmail2.apk, GaleryGoogle2.apk


Still, launcher is crashing.

Will update as soon as i fix it

UPDATE 2: Rename Launcher2.apk to Launcher.apk and it solves the Launcher force closing

UPDATE 3: Rename LatinImeGoogle.apk to LatinImeGoogle2.apk and it solves the Keyboard Not beeing able to be picked from input settings

You've flashed 4.2 "gapps" over 4.1.2 gapps. FC behaviour was to be expected. Next time, wipe data/reflash rom+gapps, then if things dont work open a thread.

It was not expected. Makes no sense to flash 4.2 GAPPS over a 4.2 Android OS, thats why they extracted it to allow people to flash the apps over Android 4.1 and 4.1.2

Also, wiping data and cache makes no sense in this procedure since the "flashing" process was only copying the .apks to the System/app folder

I am running into the same problem with the launcher, gmail and a couple others force close. I renamed them(as above adding the 2) in the gapps.zip and reflashed still I get the same force close.

I am using Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4.1.1 stock.

Thanks,

???? huh? wipe data/factory reset because he already had 4.1.2 GAPPS installed, but on that i was mistaken, that wouldn't solve it, because gapps are pushed to /system/app. what would solve it would be to format /system, flash rom, 4.2 gapps, reboot. if FCs still occur, then wipe data/factory reset.

I also installed 4.2 apps on my Galaxy Nexus running on Black Bean 4.1.2 ROM. The install went OK and I can open all apps normally. The only issue I have is that my Google Calendar is not syncing.Any body else having same issue?
