Not enough System partition space for GAPPS

Hi folks. I love the dedication and work people put into porting all these roms to older phones. I'm currently trying to get Google Play services onto a GT-I9003.
I was coming from the GT-I9003 stock rom. First I flashed
[CF-ROOT][UNIVERSAL][I9003] CF-Root and CWM5 for I9003 Gingerbread (All versions)
with Odin 3.09.
Then I used the CWM to flash cm-11-20160705-UNOFFICIAL-galaxysl.zip, posted in OPs link.
Everything went smooth and it booted up fine including first time setup.
However no matter what, I can't get google play services installed because the script says there's not enough space on the system partition.
Since the link in the OPs first opening post is not available anymore (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2397942)
I tried the following two PICO versions:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95916177934553397 from [GAPPS][10-04-2015][4.4.4] PA-GOOGLE APPS Plus (All ROM's) by hellowasif
then
open_gapps-arm-4.4-pico-20180208.zip
I did wipe everything including caches, dalvik and factory reset inbetween every step, but both fail with the same error message. I uploaded the generated logfiles of both packages to my google drive account if anyone wants to have a look.

[removed]

Are there any different GAPPS packages, we are supposed to use with this particular ROM/hardware combination?

Thank you in advance


~edit: This device is no longer in my possession

Hi everyone!

I found my old SL over here and I've felt like compiling LineageOS for microG 11 for this device. If anybody wants to give it a try, you're free!

Download link here (I may upload more builds there, but I don't know yet if I will.)

As you can see here, some developers are still backporting Android security patches to LineageOS 11 and the build partially includes the most recent patch (source.)

Don't install GApps for this ROM, if you don't know what LineageOS for microG is, look over here.

Why don't you open your own thread with all the changelog you have done

I will do so as soon as I can, but I have done little, just compile it. Changelog can be viewed in the links I posted, as I just used @dhiru1602's sources to build previous CyanogenMod ROMs.

The only difference is that signature spoofing patch has been applied and I've included some apps to set up a microG environment.

Anyway, I'll try to tell more about this in a new thread. :eek:

It's an unofficial LineageOS for microG ROM so everything for a microG environment is included in these builds. Oh, I forgot to make a new thread for my build, I have to do that soon…

By the way, 10-10-2018 build is safer than the previous one, as signature spoofing is enabled only for system apps.

Hello

I want to ask some questions:
1: Does this ROM work every carrier around the world? (I need to use a Turkish carrier on a Turkish device)
2:How do I get a custom recovery? I want to backup my stock recovery. When I search for a recovery, there's two. There's this CF-Root (https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=19442301&postcount=1) that comes with CWM Recovery (and preserves stock recovery). I can't use it because it's for Gingerbread and my device runs Froyo (couldn't update it) and it's already rooted (with SuperOneClick). There is also this port of CWM (https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1151704/). I could use it but I don't know my what my firmware is. How do I learn my firmware?
3:You said that the most effective way to go back to any other ROM was to repartition from Odin. How do I do that?
4:The Pa Google Apps thread that you linked no longer works. (Couldn't even get it using web.archive.org) I downloaded open_gapps-arm-4.4-nano-20200804.zip from opengapps.org. Will that (or another OpenGApps package) work? If they don't, can you give me a working link to a nano package that works?

Also, the tutorial on installing it from a AOSP ROM skips from 1 to 3.

Thanks for making this ROM!

Very nice work, the ROM is almost perfect but seems to have an issue that makes it entirely useless to my purpose (updating the device to sell it).
Randomly, after locking the device, the screen backlight turns on after some time (can happen after two seconds or two minutes, that's also random). Pretty annoying because that makes the battery drain fast if you leave the device and don't check it every 2 minutes.
Not sure if it's my device fault, because it works quite weirdly (the cache/data partitions are unmountable and I'm using a partitioned SD card to emulate the internal device partitions, even I don't understand why this works).

This behavior has only affected certain devices and I am still unsure why it was happening. Although I had few users in the past who faced this issue, we were unable to fix it unfortunately. I suspect it's a difference in the hardware with regards to certain devices that caused the backlight issue.

    CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:
    #include 
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
     */

    CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.



    * PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE TOPIC BEFORE FLASHING THE ROM.


    * REPORT BUGS IN THE TOPIC ONLY.
    * DON'T SEND ME PM MESSAGES ABOUT BUGS OR FEATURE REQUESTS.
    * ONLY REPORT THE BUGS IN CM11. I DON'T PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR OTHER ROMS. POST IN THEIR RESPECTIVE THREADS.
    * IF YOU ARE ON A CUSTOM KERNEL, FIRST CHECK WITH THE STOCK KERNEL AND THEN REPORT THE BUG.

    Installation Instructions


    IMPORTANT! READ BEFORE FLASHING!
    1. If you flash this ROM from Stock ROM, it will wipe data due to different partitioning. The device would reboot while flashing and resume again.
    2. Once on this ROM, the most effective way of going back to any other ROM would be to repartition from Odin.
    3. While converting the filesystem, your efs that has your IMEI is backed up to /emmc/backup/efs. Keep a backup on your PC just in case.
    4. Incase if you don't get a network signal, check if your IMEI and Baseband are proper. If not, go back to stock and try again.
    5. Do NOT use Odin to flash Modems. Due to different partitions, Odin will screw up your existing MTD setup.


    Stock ROM
    1. Flash CWM Compatible Kernel (CF ROOT)
    2. Reboot to Recovery.
    3. Wipe Data / Factory Reset.
    4. Select the ROM zip from your SD Card and flash.
    5. The device will reboot and finish flashing.
    6. Reboot to Recovery Again.
    7. Flash Google Apps.
    8. Reboot

    Any other AOSP ROM (CM7/MIUI/CM9)
    1. Reboot to Recovery.
    3. Wipe Data / Factory Reset.

    5. The device will reboot and finish flashing.
    6. Reboot to Recovery Again.
    7. Flash Google Apps.
    8. Reboot

    Upgrading from previous versions of CM10
    1. Reboot to Recovery.
    2. Select the ROM zip from your SD Card and flash.
