Well, it means no play store so it's not helpful for me at least, i want to remove anything besides google maps and play store.
Anyways, thank you for your hard work!

Does it work in jb also? I would really need it!

Edit: Yes it does! Great thanks!

Ps. I don t use this zip to get rid of gapps completely, but to clean gapps before installing a different gapp zip or when switching from ics to jb and viceversa ! (Full wipe don t delete gapps and some roms don t delete them also so this zip is very useful!)
