DESCRIPTION

  • This module installs a regular open_gapps-* zip (except aroma variant) systemlessly. When it's disabled, Google Play Services are automatically disabled on the next boot as well. This prevents continuous, disturbing gms crashes.

PRE-REQUISITES

  • Any open_gapps-* zip, except aroma variant
  • Custom recovery
  • Magisk

SETUP STEPS

  1. Make sure an open_gapps-* zip (except aroma variant) exists somewhere in /sdcard or /external_sd directories or subdirectories (max directory depth must be 3 -- i.e., /sdcard/Download/OpenGApps).
  2. Optional -- run touch /data/r to reinstall open_gapps-* zip (or touch /data/u to uninstall the module).
  3. Optional -- set up a gapps-config.txt file (removal lists work as pseudo-removal lists -- systemless debloat).
  4. Install from custom recovery (i.e., TWRP).
