This is a great idea, for starters can you post which all apps are included in the uploaded zip?

Let me know the path of default launcher, I will create a flashable zip for you which will replace the default launcher with pixel launcher.

Yeah, actually I missed Digital Wellbeing in the package that I created, I will include in next build. Backup and restore libs are included I believe. No?
ArCore will be provided as an add on zip soon.

You're right, I used to create aroma gapps when I had Mido with me, unfortunately poco doesn't support aroma installer, that makes it difficult to serve everyone.

May be I will implement a way in which I will ask user to provide an input while installing a particular Google app through NikGapps (vol + button for 'yes' and vol - button for 'no'). Will have to check its feasibility. till then, I will provide 2 packages, one which is shared in OP and the other one with all the Google apps replacing stock aosp apps.

Certainly! Thanks for the tip!


I personally create a package which includes latest magisk, the kernel I prefer to flash, Google Sans fonts, some cool ringtones, notification tones, my favorite browser, mixplorer, SwiftKey, telegram, adaway, fk app, etc. In one zip. It pretty much covers all the basic apps. Let me know if anyone is interested in such kind of zip.

It doesnt have to be aroma, currently Im still using custom opengapps config by a gapps-config.txt file that got read before it tries to install gapps. Making a script that determine some on off value should not be that bad, not that I know about how to actually code it

EDIT:

Well for me its more comfortable using your mod in comparison with opengapps just because acelerate the setup of the phone, it has all that i need too, the only problem that i see is that a person who need more apps isn't the best, in that way probaly its better opengapps, anyway, the thing that contain youtube vanced is the best for me, so i really appreaciate your mod of gapps, thanks

A person who need more apps? Like which apps?
Thanks for the feedback!

Yeah, can you share your custom opengapps? I can code it but it will take some time.

It's certainly possible. The package I use personally has all these apps in it. Not everyone uses all the Google apps hence I included the bare minimum ones and the essential ones specific to our device.

OH! I never paid this much attention to opengapps since I had been using my gapps for a long time
Thanks for sharing! I'll certainly work on something which allows users to have a choice.

Yes, if choices is an option then it would be much cooler.
Also, do you have any experience with microg? Since if it's possible to to a package like this but with microg for people who wants to use the Google apps without the excessive battery & data hog nature of google play service, then it would be even better

I do have experience with microg but like I said earlier, I build the package from my device and I don't use microg as of now (last I used, it was unstable, couldn't use apps dependent on google libs like uber, not sure about it's current status) and building a package without having microg installed is not possible for me. However, I'm inclined to take requests/suggestions with regards to current package that I am providing.

The Stock set is great, eventhough personally I would've liked to have the Dark version of Vanced and

- It doesn't include GoogleSetupWizard meaning you don't have to go through the tedious process of setting up the account during first boot

also means that I have to keep a pico opengapps set to setup a rom first. All my SMS/wifi passwords/contacts and more is still in the Google backup that can only be restored during a Setup Wizard
