I am on cm11 and I want to create my own gapps package , I downloaded the google stock package from here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2397942 and just removed the apks I don't need.

For example I want the new camera and google gallery but I want to keep the Trebuchet launcher. Unfortunately after I removed the google home apk, the script removed Trebuchet anyway so I ended up with no launcher at all

What do I have to change in order for that to work?

thanks

Why not download a smaller gapp package, then take what you need from a larger one and place it in the apk? Never remove the home.apk or launcher.apk ever.

So can I just take this package http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps for example and just add the new google camera apk , does it override the aosp camera and gallery for example?

Apps are available on Google Play so install the apps you want then manage them with TiBu.

FYI, you would need to modify the updater-script to prevent it from deleting what you want to keep, etc
