Hi Guys,
This is the much awaited Gmail app 5.0 from Android Lollipop 5.0

How to install V1
Standalone installation
Download Gmail 5.0
Allow unknown sources goto settings->security and check unknown sources
Install and enjoy

Updating from previous version
Disable previous version of Gmail
Download Gmail 5.0
Install and Update

Installing as a system app
Download Gmail 5.0
Move PrebuiltGmail.apk to system/app and set its permissions

How to install V2
Clear cache of Gmail app and rename your old Gmail.apk to Gmail.apk.bak. In my case it was in SYSTEM/APP folder.
Rename old Exchange.apk and Email.apk to Exchange.apk.bak and Email.apk.bak. Those names can differ but should be similar.

Now copy here (SYSTEM/APP folder) the new Exchange3Google.apk and Email.apk and change their permissions to rw-r-r (like everything around)

Now go to DATA/APP folder and copy here com.google.android.gm-1.apk. Change permissions to rw-r-r

In SYSTEM folder find build.pro. Open it in editor. Find ro.build.type=user and change user to userdebug.
Save it and restart your phone.

Installed well on my rooted HTC M8, watched the cool video & crashes after that. I guess we need to edit build.prop change to.build.type to userdebug
