How to install GApps

Postby Dopi » Thu Nov 18, 2010 2:38 pm

Hi all,

here is the secret method to install Google Apps on your JetDroid. Please use the following simple steps to do it.

  1. Best is to start with a clean JetPlatform install. Please see other guides on how to do that.
  2. Download the GApps binary archive and store it on your system root ( / ) directory. The file should be called "gapps-passion-EPE54B-signed.zip". You should be able to get it here.
  3. Open a text editor and enter the script below ("gedit gapps-install.sh")
  4. Make the script executable ("chmod +x gapps-install.sh")
  5. Run the script with su rights ("sudo ./gapps-install.sh")
  6. Start the phone. Starting may take a little bit longer at the first restart after installing.

Code: Select all
#/bin/bash
mkdir gapps-inst
cd gapps-inst
unzip ../gapps-passion-EPE54B-signed.zip
chown -R 1000.1000 *
cp -R system/* ../system
rm ../system/app/GoogleSearch.apk
rm ../system/app/LatinIME.apk
rm ../system/app/Provision.apk
cd ..
rm -rf gapps-inst


Enjoy!

Cheers,
Dopi

You can use the scripts from this post for easily creating a backup of your system and for cleaning up before trying to install GApps.
