Hi Guys,
This is the much awaited Gmail app 5.0 from Android Lollipop 5.0
Gmail-5.0-apk.jpg

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

    Ok, got it working on my rooted Note 3...

    1. Uninstalled Gmail,

    2. Downloaded new apk and pushed it to system/priv-app.

    3. Set permissions to 0644 (rw-r--r--)

    4. In build.prop edit 'ro.build.type=' to 'userdebug'

    5. Reboot

    :)

    I think that I found why it fc when trying to write a new message, if you have a theme (for cm theme engine) that change gmail look, try to disable it and see if it works ;)

    i got it working on my VZW HTC One M8.

    renamed old gmail.apk
    pushed/renamed new Gmail.apk
    changed permissions

    Then clicked on the app in Root Explorer and installed it --- this time it installs successfully.

    Then I deleted all app cache and app data.

    Changed the r.build.type=userdebug

    saved.

    reboot and profit.

    To be more precision I mean MS Exchange via ActivSync.

    You have to install the Exchange services apk as well. It won't work without it. I have it installed on mine and it is working flawlessly. attached to this post.
