Hey Nik i need help please. I have a Redmi 7 onclite, when i flash the rom, your gapps and magisk (in that order) the phone doesn't pass the bootlogo, the screen flash and it takes me back to the recovery again... What im doing wrong? Im just doing what I do with every other Gapps package.

PD: It happens with the Pixys os and lineage os, and only with NikGapps.
Exactly the same problem with Crdroid... RN8T, clean flash with Orange Fox, NikGapps-stock-arm64-11-20210718-signed
With Core version of NikGapps, it works. Strange...But SMS app don't works when I want to tipe a message. That's why I want replace the SMS app by Google Message with Gapps more complete

Hi, quick question that's been buggin' me...


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"

Everytime i go to update nikgapps (before i update my crdroid rom) i look for the nikgapps folder in the system folder (system/system/addon.d) and can't find any folder there, just a bunch of *.sh files with the name of the addons the pack has...

do i need to delete all those files also?

this is the second time i look the the folder and can't find it so i go ahead updating rom and nikgapps pack and it doesn't give me problems...

What am i missing??

Interesting!. I am facing SMS problems too I can't receive reliably and can sometimes send. So 2FA is a pain. I might just flash G Message.

Why not if they release new versions?
The new versions are those tweaks or just new versions by the compiler of the Gapps, eg OpenGapps BitintheGap or the developer of Nikgapps.

Gapps, most if not all self-updates. So why put out new packages? It saves you from updating the packages from the Play store.

Historical info:
Google Play services, some old versions 6 or 7 do not accept time settings via wifi and crashed. The result is no Play store.

The fix is to manually set the time, for Play services to run so that it can update itself to ver 8 via the Play store. Thereafter it takes network time from anywhere.

I had some issues on my phone after installing this gapps pack:
> Pixel Launcher Crash Everytime
> Maps won't work, every I click on it, the crash popup showed up
> Google Chrome can't detect my Google Account even though I've been signed in my account to my phone
> Google Board always send me notification "Missing Google Services", but Google Play Services is already installed on my phone

Gapps that I use: NikGApps-Full-latestrelease-Q
Rom Installed on my Phone: Nusantara Project V2.8
My Phone: Asus Zenfone Max M2 (X01AD)

Any way to fix this? Please help me

Hello Nik. Awesome work you have going on. I sideloaded your Gapps package along with Havoc OS 4.6 on my Redmi 5 Plus. The problem is i can't add my already existing Google account on Chrome.

When I launch Chrome, then tap on "sign in to chrome" and "add account" it takes me to a page to sign in to Google afresh and this doesn't let me add my already existing Google accounts on my device. When I try to sign in with a different account, the process crashes and restarts Chrome.

Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

Thank you!

    hey guys, wonderful gapps! I especially like the "select text" option in recents overview.
    However, now with my new Rom, this doesn't work. I have the option to select text (compare screenshot, red box), but no text is highlighted. also attaching logs, maybe someone can find out whats wrong or whats missing for this to work.

    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 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!
