Thanks for the excellent work, Nik!

Anyone know how to uninstall the Google Fi app? I uninstalled Google Carrier Services using the config file but this stupid app is still here. I'm not in the U.S. so Google Fi is useless to me. I flashed the Basic Canary package. In LineageOS 18.1 (Pixel 4a), Google Play Services keeps complaining to me that Google Fi needs the SMS permission every time I reboot. I try giving it SMS permissions and it just gets stuck at "Deny", it can't move to Allow.

More annoying, Google Fi keeps enabling itself upon reboot. I disabled this thing and it's re-enabling itself...

I already tried removing it from /user/0/data (tycho app) but that causes the ROM to crash (no apps open).

Delete /data/misc_de/*/apexdata/com.android.permission/runtime_permissions.xml and reboot, this will reset your permissions but then you should be able to give the permissions properly.

btw, you can uninstall any Package you want by setting the value =-1 in nikgapps.config

Thanks! Do you know how to uninstall Google Fi using the config file? What should I be putting "-1" next to?

Not facing any such issues here. Try clean flashing.
How does replace AOSP apps works? Does it safe?
Yes, with NikGapps it's safe.
setup wizard addon doesnt work on oneplus 6t latest dot os rom. i change wifi to unmetered and still coming back to wifi choosing (ofc 1. flash gapps basic 2. flash addon )
It's working fine here. Can you grab a logcat when that happens?

Flashing addon will replace corresponding aosp apps. You can use nikgapps.config to control your installation. There's a way to keep both aosp variant as well as Google variant of the apps ;)

Check out nikgapps.com for more info.

Taimen running Lineagos 18.1 nightly 20210415 and NikGapps stock 20210130 with GoogleFi addon.

I thought it may have been that package as well and tried enabling that with a dirty flash over my existing rom. The Data Transfer agent continued to crash. Does this only work on a fresh install of the rom, with a /system wipe or should this be able to be implemented with a Dirty flash?

Updating my LineageOS 18.1 to the new nightly resulted in magisk not being able to run its addon.d script because it couldn't mount /system. It seems like NikGapps also mounts /system. Is it possible that it's preventing magisk from mounting because of that?

Find below configs

mount.d and unmount.d
Set both of them to 0 and see if that helps.

Meanwhile, I'll try to reproduce in my device.

You can try flashing the rom
Reboot to the system, then again to recovery
Wipe /data
Flash gapps.

Alternatively, set InstallPartition=product

Let me know how it goes. Also would be great if you could send me the installation logs.

I can't even see googledialer in settings.
Any idea what should I do without wiping system?

Did you skip Google Dialer during your installation?

Your system must have at least one app that serves as default dialer app. If you installed basic, you must have google dialer in place and you should be able to set it as default.

I'd suggest you to try flashing google dialer addon and then look for 'Dialer' in settings

    The steps to configure the rom not appears.

    I installed the core variant on an android 11 custom ROM but when boots the configuration not appears. Any idea?
    You need omni variant. Core contains bare minimum app to run playstore, nothing more.

    Hi Everyone,

    Here I'd like to Introduce you with my custom Gapps package that I use on day to day basis when I flash a new Rom. As I've observed many people struggling with finding the correct version of gapps to flash, I decided to build a package of my own which lets you flash stable google apps with a lot of variants so you can decide for yourself which package suits you.

    What is NikGapps?
    • NikGapps project started with the goal to provide custom gapps packages that suits everyone's needs. A package that a user needs but cannot find and ends up setting up the device installing more apps and removing unwanted apps manually.
    • NikGapps is a gapps package built from my own device. As my device is always updated with latest version of Google Apps, every time I build a new package, I am on latest and stable version of Google Apps
    • NikGapps also comes with Android Go package for low end devices.
    • NikGapps is a bit different than other Gapps packages (written from scratch, it isn't a port of OpenGapps). It focuses on providing apps that most of the people uses but can't find it in other Gapps packages and ends up installing the apps manually
    • NikGapps doesn't have stock YouTube, instead it has YouTube vanced (v14 with separate addons for v15). It doesn't have Pixel Launcher, instead it has Lawnchair launcher (Till Android Q, discontinued starting Android R)
    • NikGapps supports split-apks
    • NikGapps also comes with nikgapps.config and debloater.config which allows you to control your installation and debloat unnecessary stuff from your Rom respectively.
    • NikGapps is built on a different architecture, the installation method is completely different (Every Package comes with installer.sh that installs itself). Also, it installs the gapps to /product partition instead of /system partition
    • NikGapps also allows you to configure the installation, it can be installed to any partition (be it /system or /product or any other partition which may get added in future)
    • NikGapps also allows you to keep the aosp counterpart of google app if you want (just by using nikgapps.config you can choose whether to remove the aosp counterpart or remove it)
    • NikGapps allows you to dirty flash it anytime you want, it also supports installing on top of Roms with Gapps (except for the pixel flavored Roms)
    • NikGapps also comes with addon packages (useful ones) so that users don't have to flash the whole gapps package just to have the app installed.
    • NikGapps supports the Privileged Permission Whitelisting, providing the necessary permissions to the privileged apps.
    • It supports addon.d so you need not flash the package again and again after every nightly flash
    • NikGapps addon.d functionality is built from scratch which allows you to completely control which app you want to backup/restore on dirty flash.
    • It also allows optimizing Google Play Services (when you turn off Find My Device) so that you can sleep with peace without having to worry about Google play services eating your battery. (Requires support from Rom too in order to work)
    Also, since these are custom build, I can include as many packages as I want (which I do, you can pm me if you want that package)

    NikGapps comes with following packages
    » Core
    » Basic
    » Omni
    » Macro
    » Stock
    » Full
    » Go (for low end devices)

    Although these packages cover a large user base, there are few users who like things differently that is where NikGapps Addons Comes into picture. These Addon packages are separate and meant to flash over NikGapps original packages.

    Everything about NikGapps

    Flashing Instructions for A/B devices (Clean Flash is recommended)

    • Flash Rom in Slot A, Flash twrp, reboot to recovery
    • Flash Rom in Slot B, Flash twrp, reboot to recovery
    • Flash NikGapps
    • Flash Debloater (Optional)
    • Reboot

    Flashing Instructions for A-only devices (Clean Flash is recommended)
    • Flash Rom
    • Flash NikGapps
    • Flash Debloater (Optional)
    • Reboot
    How to clean flash NikGapps update without losing data?
    • Delete /system/addon.d/nikgapps folder
    • Delete /system/addon.d/nikgapps-addon.sh
    • Dirty flash Rom
    • Flash newer version of NikGapps
    How to remove/uninstall an Addon or Package?

    Method 1 (Faster and Recommended)
    • edit nikgapps.config and set <Addon>=-1 (e.g. YouTube=-1)
    • set mode=uninstall
    • Reflash the zip you flashed in first place to install the addon/package
    Method 2
    • Uninstall any playstore updates you have for the addon
    • Delete the <addon>.sh file from /system/addon.d/nikgapps folder (e.g. YouTube.sh)
    • Reflash the rom
    Enjoy the package! hope it helps you somewhat!

    Hey can we have a package which will replace the default ROMs aosp apps like Google calendar, Google clock, Google dailer, Google contact, google message, google calculator, google gboard, youtube vanced, pixel launcher and wallpaper, Latest Gcam with all the goodies like playground ar sticker included if you cant provide it in a single zip then provide gcam all in one zip separately. Rest all other apps can be downloaded but these apps are needed as default apps in the ROM.

    +1 to this but without the pixel launcher because I like the built launcher
    I'll create one tomorrow. I'll exclude pixel launcher as we can install it separately and there are ported versions available which are preferred over stock.
    As for ar sticker in Google camera, I'll create a separate addon zip as the file size will increase tremendously and not everyone wants to install it.

    Time for another Q update! (12-Jan-2020)

    Changelog

    - Fixed NikGapps installation issues with config values not reflecting in installation
    - Added a nikgapps.config value "2" to retain aosp apps (set the value to 2 if you don't want the installer to delete the aosp counter part of Google app)
    - Aosp Dialer is now deleted by default starting omni package to maintain the uniformity.

    Note: set Dialer=2 in nikgapps.config before flashing if you want the gapps to skip removing aosp Dialer, the installer will remove the Dialer by default.

    Full Changelog and download links are in OP

    Thank you for choosing NikGapps!
