There are a lot of versions of Gapps out there.

While many of them focuses on making the smallest Gapps, I'd like to make the opposite.

As you know, Android uses jar, apk files as their system components and it's basically a ZIP format files.

So, you can adjust the compression on these files.
You can max compress these files and get the most space out of your /system partition.


But think about it for a second,

If your "core-system" apps are compressed,
the longer it will take to decompress,
the more CPU juice it will eat to decompress.
More over, it may affect your entire device performance since Gapps is one of the core components.

(I do not want to get in a debate about this "compression" thing. This is my theory. If you agree with me, take it! :D )


So, I made a non-compressed, 0% compression ratio, uncompressed Gapps for ALL AOSP users.

It's made up of the official http://goo.im/gapps
and nothing was removed or added from it.



SUMMARY

1) All *.jar, *.zip files are uncompressed and zipaligned.
(In my theory, FASTER!!!)
2) Nothing removed or added. It has the SAME contents from the official file.
3) The installation file it self, however, is max compressed to reduce bandwidth of downloading.

Here, you will find you will find all the Gapps files (~2013/08/13) from http://goo.im/gapps .

Please hit Thanks! :D
