Tested with Lineage OS on my Nexus 5.
It's easy and fast. Thanks for saving us time!

Now I only miss a Tingle.apk or a way to survive dirty flash

With this installation method on crDroid 7.1.1, I am unable to pass SafetyNet. Newest 1.0.5 beta

Edit: are there any steps required to ensure the Google Play Store doesn't auto update itself after flashing this installer?

Updated: microG unofficial installer 1.0.6 beta

@Primokorn: I will add a survival script to the microG unofficial installer.
It isn't yet ready but it would be nice if someone offers for testing and reporting back for when it is ready.

@animeme:
1) SafetyNet include the base test + CTS profile match.
The first usually pass, the second is more complicate.
There are some things to check:
- Does the ROM hide the unlocked bootloader?
- Have you removed the su binary?
- Is the ROM signed?

2) To disable auto-update of Play Store, run from the pc connect to the phone:
Code:
adb shell pm disable com.android.vending/com.google.android.finsky.autoupdate.ReschedulerUsingJobScheduler\$CheckPreconditionsAndAutoUpdateJobService
adb shell pm disable com.android.vending/com.google.android.finsky.autoupdate.ReschedulerUsingAlarmManager\$CheckWifiAndAutoUpdate
adb shell pm disable com.android.vending/com.google.android.finsky.autoupdate.ReschedulerUsingBroadcast\$AutoUpdateRecheckForBroadcast
IMPORTANT: I haven't tested properly the code to disable auto-update so I cannot grant it work perfectly.

@ale5000 I'll edit this later with more info, but yeah, system su is definitely gone, and Magisk Hide should handle hiding bootloader state. As far as being signed, I couldn't say. It's the last official CM13 nightly for my device.

Actually I was talking about Tingle and I guess it can't be done.
No problem to give a try to the survival script as soon as it's ready (and as soon as I have a working device without Google apps).

For Tingle it is more complicate because it needs a lot of time for patching inside the phone, but I will try to optimize it in the future.

The play store crashed a bunch of times for me, so I plan to replace it with BlankStore. I'm not sure if the real client is actually worth keeping if it requires a lot of workarounds/maintenance to keep it functional.

@animeme: The bundled version works (after blocking auto-update) and even allow buying apps.
BlankStore isn't developed anymore (except maintenance fixes), so until there is a good alternative there isn't any real choice.

Did you experience similar issues before blocking auto update? I was able to download one app, and whenever I searched for another after that, it force closes.

@animeme: No, but I suggest to block auto-update, uninstall the update that probably got already installed and clean data of Play Store.
It should fix the issues.
