Hello everybody! Please tell me how to remove ALL of GAPPS using TWRP? Maybe there is some kind of script not to calculate all the components one at a time ?

And kill the firmware to restore from a backup is the same ? No, thank you . Or just gapps stored in the system ? I need to remove only GAPPS.

#1 You'll need a script/flashable script that remove stuff from Gapps. (You can write if you can. We don't have)
#2 You can restore your gapps-less /system backup. (Clearly you don't have one... so just skip #2)
#3 Go into /system delete Gapps stuff one by one. (You can open the Gapps file you flashed, so you"ll delete what you see on PC.)

There's nothing more about that. I don't think that there would be more solution. It's all stored in /system partition.

The flashing of the GAPPs package "gapps-5.1.x-20150404-minimal-edition-signed.zip" give a signature verification error. Please reexamine this GAPPs package for correctness.

I think jajb is on a long vacation. I'd normally avoid linking to a "competing" thread, but DeltaDroid is doing almost EXACTLY what jajb is with his GApps:

Until jajb comes back on-line, try Delta's version.

Thanks for the lead.

I shall use Delta's version for now or at next flash of the GAPPs.

jajb's GAPPs packages are much smaller than respective Delta versions.

You're looking at it wrong.

The install packages are larger, but the end result is the same; the files installed are exactly the same.

Delta's version just includes the install files for multiple DPIs. Only one DPI is installed. It's much easier to maintain one version instead of four.

I thought this might be the case.

I often do change the DPI value after installing the Android operating system and after first OS boot.

So is jahib's version compatible with mutiple DPIs? If I were to use Delta's version, would there be a mismatch in what DPI the operating system uses and what the GAPPs use?

Looking at the directory structure between the two, I'm not seeing much difference in terms of the DPI install. I think jajb's setup for DPI is the same as Delta's. For your intent, you shouldn't see any difference.

In the year since jajb released his last version, gms files have grown in size, so that will contribute somewhat to the size increase.

Delta also includes Facelock and Dialer, which I exclude from install (see this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=68579774&postcount=2).

    What is Google Apps Minimal Edition and what makes it different from other GApps packages?
    Google Apps Minimal Edition for Android 5.0.x & 5.1 is a modified, slimmed down version of the Google Apps package. The goal of these packages is to provide the smallest GApps pack possible in addition to de-bloating your custom ROM (de-bloat script offered in Add-On section). The GApps Minimal Edition only includes the absolute essentials to make everything run properly. This includes the Google Play Store, Google Play Services, and Google Contact Sync along with the necessary frameworks and libraries.
