Hi Everyone,

Okay, Let's come to the point.

We all flash Roms on frequent basis. After we flash any Rom, we flash Gapps, our favorite Kernel, Magisk (to root) and Favorite fonts, bootanimations, ringtones, apps like Launchers, File Managers, etc and many times we delete the bloatware when we never use them.

Having to flash all these files, we end up maintaining several zip files in several directories of our phone. Many times we get confused with the order of execution and end up messing things.
This starts to become a headache when you have to look for each file and follow a proper order. Especially when you're a flashaholic like me. :D

Here, with the help of my tool and Aroma Installer. I present you my After Flash zip which I use to flash everything from a single zip after I flash a rom.

Be it Kernel or Magisk, fonts or bootanimations, Everything in one zip. Exciting. Isn't it?

What it includes?
  • Bare minimum (and latest version of) google apps to run play store.
  • Facelock and Google Camera (with Google Lens and Portrait mode support)
  • Magisk to root
  • 7 mido kernels to choose from
  • Android Boot animation (will add more as per user requests)
  • Google Sans font, Made Evolved Font (will add more as per user requests)
  • Several Ringtones and Notification tones (the ones I like)
  • Best Chosen System apps
  • Choice of deleting several bloatware (those we don't normally use)
  • Reset Password in recovery when system fails to recognize the fingerprint/password
  • Addon.d support (this will preserve the installation of files that you selected in aroma across multiple roms)

If you like the idea kindly press 'Submit to Xda Portal'. If nothing, that'll encourage me somewhat. Thanks!

Note:-
  • "Core" Gapps include minimum apps required to run playstore
  • "Basic" Gapps include Core + Google Camera + Facelock
  • "Full" Gapps include Basic + few more google apps which we use in day to day life
  • Packages starting with "AF" contains Gapps, Kernels, Magisk, etc files

Can't wait to check it out? Here ->

For Kernel, if choose include more than one. What kernel be installed? Sorry for bad english,, btw nice job! Wait for update :fingers-crossed:
Actually the screenshot in post #2 shows options to flash multiple kernels, when I tried that myself, I ended up flashing all the kernels one after the other and the last one was flashed eventually.
This is not right so I made changes in my tool to only allow 1 kernel to be flashed.
Flash the zip, you would only be able to choose one kernel at a time. No include/exclude options. :)
I'll update the screenshot in #2 post later on.

How to uninstall?
If you wish to be able to uninstall what you installed, uncheck when you are on addon.d screen, that'll not preserve your changes when you will flash the ROM again.
Flash the ROM again, that will Uninstall everything.

I didn't get enough response to realize if this is useful to anyone hence I stopped updating. I'll push a new build soon :)

Please update O Gapps and P Gapps and consider adding google calendar sync ( option to select or opt out during install )
its definitely useful

Thanks in advance
