The purpose of this thread is to provide a dedicated discussion area for Slim GApps, so we can monitor and correct gapps-related issues more quickly before moving the packages from beta to stable. These packages contain google apps which are dual-themed for Slim's TRDS (The Real Dark Slim) feature. To learn more about TRDS, read about it here. Enjoy, and thanks for choosing Slim!
(important when migrating from 7.x GApps to 8.x GApps):
Google changed a bunch of stuff in new play services. This has caused issues for several apps, including maps and hangouts. Some modifications needed to be done, but I think I've got the kinks worked out. After flashing latest gapps (which is version 282), if you're having issues with maps or hangouts won't stop trying to update itself, do this:
1. Remove Google account from phone
2. Clear data for play store, play services, and services framework.
3. Reboot into recovery and clear cache.
This should prevent the need to clean flash (though that will also take care of the issue, if you'd rather do that), and you should only have to do this once.
