    Hi All

    I am building android jelly bean for my development board,I need to build google store apps with this image,but through research i came to know that google apps source code is not open source. In that case is there any way to get the google app source code? Do i need to purchase google apps source code or i must have to use only google apps apks provided by google.

    in the case if i have to use google apps apk only than what all licensing criteria i have to follow?

    please suggest me a option to come out from this problem
    Thanks you all in advance
    Regards Ajai

    Welcome to the forums! :)

    So far as I know, and I'm not 100% sure, Google won't let you distribute such an image.

    Others however provide those by having a separate gapps installation that accompanies their image with the Google apps.

    I'll let others more knowledgeable say more, meanwhile, try a search on gapps, that may be helpful as well.
