LP-GAPPS with Slim GApps as base (last update: May, 25 2015)[discontinued]:







LP-GAPPS is an AROMA installer based on Slim GApps.
This package should work fine on any device running any AOSP based ROM (Android 5.0/5.1).

I'm trying to keep LP-GAPPS up-to-date with Slim GApps sources, which means I will push updates regularly.


BIG, BIG thanks to Slim Team for their GApps!

Features
  • Backup script - you don't have to flash GApps every time you update your ROM
  • Dirty flash - you can dirty flash LP-GAPPS over a previous LP-GAPPS package
  • Replace stock apps:
    • Stock Browser
    • Stock Email
    • Stock MMS
    • PicoTTS
    • Stock Calendar
    • Stock Keyboard
    • Stock Camera (Camera2/OpenCamera/ABCamera)
    • Stock Launcher (Trebuchet/Launcher3)
    • Stock Music Player (Eleven/Apollo)
  • Protection script - if you previously removed stock apps you won't accidentally remain without them, this script will force install the Google counterpart for the missing apps
  • Bloatware removal - you have the choice to remove some stock apps found in CyanogenMod ROM and other AOSP ROMs
  • Save&load selections made in AROMA, so you don't have to select every time which apps to install.

NOTE: If you don't select any app from AROMA Installer, then just core apps are installed (including Play Store app).
NOTE: It's recommended to install on a fresh system partition(wipe system, flash ROM, flash GApps). User apps and data will remain untouched.
NOTE: If you have already installed LP-GAPPS, you can flash LP-GAPPS again to install/remove desired GAPPS.
ATENTION! Any change made by LP-GAPPS (GApps installed and/or removed apps) will persist over ROM updates!(so to stop the installs/removals when you update your ROM, you will have to delete the backup scripts (/system/addon.d/80-gapps.sh and /system/addon.d/81-remstock.sh ) or just wipe system partition!





  • Boot in custom recovery menu (TWRP is highly recommended)
  • Flash AROMA-LP-GAPPS.zip
  • Choose desired apps from AROMA
  • Reboot





Android 5.0.x:AndroidFileHost folder

Android 5.1.x:AndroidFileHost folder

MIRROR: For changelog read the second post!

Changes to be added in next update:
-

Quote:

May, 25 2015
Common changes(for both 5.0&5.1 packages):

  • Latest Slim GApps
  • The packages will save the selections in different files (the 5.0 save can't be restored to 5.1 or vice versa)
Changes only for 5.0 package:
  • -
Changes only for 5.1 package:
  • -

May, 15 2015
Common changes(for both 5.0&5.1 packages):
  • Latest Slim GApps
  • The MULTI-DPI was excluded form both packages 5.0 & 5.1 and is delivered in a separate addon. The addons are included in packages so you can flash them if you want. The MULTI-DPI in 5.1 may cause instability! On 5.0 it works fine. You only need MULTI-DPI package if you are using a custom DPI.
  • Now you can save/load selections. This is very useful if you flash LP-GAPPS often.

Changes only for 5.0 package:
  • -
Changes only for 5.1 package:
  • Slim GApps update: remove multi-dpi
    -separate flashable add-on package will be offered for multi-dpi
    capability. the reason for this removal is that dirty
    hacks to several core google services were necessary for
    multi-dpi, and were causing too much instability. so,
    instead of being forced on everyone, those who choose to
    use the hacked versions of GoogleServicesFramework, Phonesky,
    and PrebuiltGmsCore will be able to flash the separate
    add-on package. ( https://github.com/dankoman30/slimlp...98106379dcb6c1 )
    *this script will be available in SlimLP GApps thread, so visit their thread to get the add-on*

FAQ
  • I'm using CWM/Philz and the AROMA Installer screen is overlaid with CWM/Philz screen. Why?
    AROMA Installer may have this graphical issue on CWM/Philz, that's why I recommend using TWRP instead of CWM/Philz.

  • After I make the selections in AROMA and proceed to the installation process, suddenly AROMA closes. Why?
    There is a bug which is triggered somehow by the update-binary and causes AROMA to close sometimes, the only solution is to flash the package again.
  • When I try to flash LP-GAPPS in TWRP, AROMA Installer doesn't start/AROMA Installer freezes. Why?
    AROMA Installer doesn't work perfectly on any TWRP version. If you have issues, just try a newer or older version of TWRP for your device.
  • I face ForceClose(FC) to Google Apps. Why?
    Please report any GApps issue in the main Open GApps thread!
  • I tried older/newer TWRP and nothing seems to make AROMA work.
    AROMA is really old and outdated. If your recovery can't run AROMA, I recommend to use the other Open GApps packages.

Hi. So, now as TKruzze has closed his thread, what will you do? Find another base?

Hope you can continue your work with an own base. Don't see it as a problem that pa gapps disappeared, but as a chance. GAPPS package with an Aroma installer is by far more elegant than several different zip files.

I'll try to continue with this project but I can't guarantee anything for now. I need other base and it will require more work than before. For now I just can say that I will try when I have more free time

I suggest him to use the SlimKat GApps, the dev updates their packages regularly - plus includes all of Google's apps with the "full" package.

I would build them myself, but I don't know how,

Looks like a great project! Unfortunately it will not open on my OnePlus One. TWRP freezes at "(c) 2013 amarullz xda-developers". Is there a fix? Many thanks!
