My location doesn't work on navigation apps, weather app or sort of apps. Is it something to do with gapps or the rom?

I always used Vanilla build of custom ROMs and never had to face this issue as chrome is not preinstalled in vanilla builds.

Did you put

GoogleChrome

in debloater.config?
Yes Nikhil, I did try "GoogleChrome" and "ChromeGoogle". There was no change.

This time I tried the following in Debloater config:

Chrome
ChromeGoogle
GoogleChrome
ChromePrebuilt
ChromeGooglePrebuilt
GoogleChromePrebuilt

It worked half way & gave me this:

Sadly, no option to uninstall this leftover from Chrome.



This is why I am trying to debloat chrome on Gapps build ROM:

This space is missing when I install Pixel Launcher and Wallpaper from the NikGapps

Is this a known issue? I don't know whom should I report, ROM dev or Nikgapps dev.

I have a problem with my Clock. I can't update to the latest version.
I installed a new ROM and used Omni Gapps version. Then I had to update it and installed Basic version and I had a very early version of the Clock. I even tried to install again Omni version and try to install on the Play Store and with apk but no success.
Can somebody help me update it? Thanks.

Folks,

My apologies, I'm having a very blonde/senior/dumb moment here! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

The "...-Addon-..." files, where do they need to go so that they are also installed by my customised 'nikgapps.config' file ??

I'm in TWRP and the output shows me that the .config file is picked up, but I am expecting under "Starting the install process" to show all the addons being installed, instead it only shows the Core AppSet being installed, nothing else.

I have only tried two (2) places; leaving all the addon files in the same folder as the Core file that I use to kick off the installation and also copying all the addon files to where the .config file is ( /sdcard/NikGapps ), but nothing!

Sorry for being so dense! :LOL:

Kind regards,
Dodgy Bob

In the standard calendar app my appointments are not displayed in the monthly view. Also there is no way to add any appointment in any view. No +button etc.

When I use Google Calendar from PlayStore everything works fine there.
Granted all rights to the Calendar app.

Does anyone have a suggestion where to go from here?

Thank you all.

Well, I could install but it's having issues.
I think I maybe did something wrong because at some point I did uninstalled my Clock.
Now if I try to install GoogleClock zip says that Can't Dirty Flash GoogleClock, please Clean flash but I didn't want to clean. Can somebody help me?

You need to delete runtime_permissions.xml in order to dirty flash google clock

I finally found the solution to my PlayStore registration and have Los 19 and Nikgapps working. The only problem I have left is that the brightness bar doesn't work.

    I flash LOS 19.1 + Nikgapps SL (core to full - unsure if there were enough system space) + Magisk using ADB (can't TWRP on A12)

    I don't have Nikgapps folder and/or log.

    May I adb flash nikgapps.zip renamed to UnInstall.zip and all will be uninstalled ?
    I want to switch back from full to core without wiping things :)
    Yes, you can uninstall it by renaming the zip file.

    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
    » 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!
