Default Symlinked Gapps for CM9 And CM10 (w/ Google Now ICS instructions) (09MAY2013)

Hello guys and gals. After spending hours trying to figure out what I could delete from the system to make room for Gapps on CM10, I even tried to resize partitions, I came to the conclusion that the Gapps will have to be stored elsewhere. So, I came up with a solution, by installing the apps to /data/Gapps and then symlinking the files to /system, and it worked. So since there are so many people trying to get Goggle Now on CM9, I figured I would make modified Gapps zips for both CM9 and CM10.

I need some feedback on this, but I did flash it and everything seems to be working. I'm sure this will help a bunch of other devices that have smaller system partitions also.

Note: Facelock requires you to log in to an account, to even show up in lockscreen options.

I don't think Google should have any issues with this as I haven't changed any files that where in the zip just moved them around and modified the updater-script.

Google Now Installation for CM9 (fresh install):
1. Boot to your favorite custom recovery
2. Factory reset, wipe cache and dalvik cache
3. Flash CM9
4. Flash Google Now (online)
5. Flash these Gapps
6. Reboot

Google Now Installation for CM9 (previous install):
1. Boot to your favorite custom recovery
2. Wipe cache and dalvik cache
3. Flash CM9
4. Flash Google Now (online)
5. Flash these Gapps
6. Reboot

[MOD][ICS] The Google Now for ICS Project [ARMv6 & v7]

Symlinked Gapps for ICS Ver3:
Fixed Facelock.
Note: Facelock requires you to log in to an account, to even show up in lockscreen options.
Had to add placeholders in system/vendor for the symlinks to be created, but vendor is still 0 bytes

Symlinked Gapps for JB Ver2:

Symlinked Gapps for ICS:
Right now, after install it uses 23.3MB and the bulk of the files are installed to /data/Gapps

This is the type of thing that g60 and I talked about in the past. This is one way of doing it. I think it will work until we figure out how to do it through the eddify script.

How well would this work for gapp updates?

This should work just like the apps in the hidden partition. Like when you get updates to facebook on the stock rom.
I was able to install google now offline and then these gapps and have 8 MB free.

This is a beta as far as symlinking gapps to save system space. I am working on CM10 alpha for the triumph, and it is bigger than CM9, and JB Gapps has google now included so it is bigger. That is why I started this thread, to see if this could help. It's gonna take a minute to work in all the symlinks.

Yeah, when I saw this (and got some sleep) I realized that the updates are kind of overlay. If you look at the market update, it's an app in the /data/app directory that adds to the original vending.apk. This should be perfect.

Strange on the GPS. I can acquire satellites on the GPS Test app, and in Google now, it will show the time to get home when I am away from home, but the Navigation app will not acquire GPS.

Thanks for the feedback. If you could let me know your install process, like Google Now or not, or fresh install or over previous install, that would be great. A few apps or files may need to be installed in the proper place. I'll test some stuff out this weekend.

Sooooooooooo many symlinks! I think I've worn out my mouse, it's starting to double click on single clicks.

I just finished a lil while ago so I just have to do a few double checks and I'll upload them. The updater-script is ridiculously long.

Edit: Plus there is only 27.6 MB free with just the ROM installed.

What's up everybody? I need some feedback so I can get these perfected. There have been about 50 downloads of the ICS version somebody must have something to say.

Thanks for the feedback that has been left.

I installed this on CM9 12/31/12 with google now offline (m7 velvet offline) and had some problems with maps. Navigation would open up and freeze on the title screen. I cleared map data though the system's applications menu and under CWM I cleared the cache. After a reboot it has worked great.

This may be a really dumb question (if so, I apologize), but both sets of instructions refer to (re)flashing CM9 though I've been running it actively for about a week. Do I have to start over and reflash it to try this out?

This is ment to be used instead of the ICS gapps that is in the CM9 ROMs. If you needed more space in your /system partition, then I would do start over.

Okay, that makes good sense. I was looking for more reason to flash the absolute latest release of CM9, so this helps that along. Thanks, much appreciated!

For whatever reason, every time I turn on Wifi, gapps (com.google.process.gapps) crashes. Not a big deal to me as I hardly use it but thought the feedback could maybe be helpful.

I've been trying to reproduce this on my new paranoid build but can't seem to get this to reoccur. I have to ask was it a fresh flash or not? I suggest flashing the ROM before you flash these Gapps, if you already had Gapps installed, because that will remove the apps from /system/app and then this will put a symlink to where it is stored in /data/Gapps. So more information would be needed to understand completely. Did you install Google Now or just these Gapps? Also did you start fresh or install over a previous install? Hope you figure it out, let me know how it goes.

It was on a fresh flash on CM9. I followed exactly as it's written in the first post.

I cleared all cache/dalvik, factory reset, then flashed CM9 (12/31) followed by Google Now (offline) and finally the symlinked gapps from the first post.

It crashed on me right after I setup the account fully and went into the play store but everything seemed fine. I've been using it since my first post in this thread and it's crashed a few times, the only ones I can pinpoint the why to is when I activate wifi. I pretty much leave it disabled to save battery generally, but when I turn it on, most often it crashes it. I just tried while replying and it didn't. Seems I can't recreate it, mostly seems random.

I'd be glad to help any way I can. I hope I'm not coming across as complaining, I'm not at all, I very much appreciate your effort. Just thought maybe this could help somehow.

I installed your gapps and google now. I don't seem to have any issues so far with gapps. I notice that google now doesn't speak back though. I followed your instructions to the "T" with a fresh ROM install on MTDEV's newest CM9 update. The other thing I wondered was exactly what apps are included in gapps?? Thanks for your help and progress you are making on this!

I really doubt it will work with CM7 because you would have to backport to GB. I highly doubt that things will work as they will need special permissions only found in ICS and up. They had a hard time just porting it to ICS cause it was made for jellybean, and JB has permissions that ICS doesn't.

I just tested on my paranoid build and it told me the weather as the page loaded. It also told me what 5 times 5 million is, also said "Detroit Pistons" and it told me the pistons lost to the bobcats, and the time of the next game. Did you use Now online or offline? I used M7 offline just in case anybody was wondering.

Would it be possible to symlink everything except google maps/navigation. I thought clearing the cache would make navigation work but it is once again freezing at the google navigation logo and force closing when I hit the back button.

It has to be a ROM thing, cause maps is not included with this.

Edit: It may just be a Maps things also, a lot of reviews are saying it crashes.

Ok, I found something, but I haven't figures out what caused it. In framework the google maps jar was 4kb. So I extracted the symlinked Gapps zip with root explorer and the jar in there was 155kb so I copied it to system/framework and changed the permissions and everything was fine. Now to figure out what is happening from the zip to the system. It is not symlinked or changed in any way. I'll see what is going on and see if it is something with the updater script or not.

Ok, so I have been running some tests and I am pretty sure that I did not symlink enough stuff with the ICS version, cause we are still running out of space in the /system partition. So I am working on a new version. I learned a lot after working out the JB version and am applying the workarounds for the ICS version. I'll post it in a while just need to do some more tests. I think as soon as one file can't fit it just stops doing the process and finishes with out error cause I have seen different files not installed at different times.

What's up everybody?

After testing extensively, I have came to the conclusion that, We are not gonna have enough system space for Google Now offline. So we will have to use Google Now online, instead of offline. I have requested permission to post a symlinked offline package over at XDA, but haven't heard back yet. I have installed the symlinked Now and Gapps Ver2 and have not found any issues, all files seem to be present and working.

Here's the breakdown:
Google Now offline uses about 53 MB

<<<<<Situation>>>>>><<<<<<Free System Space>>>>>
Fresh Paranoid install 51.65 MB
After Symlinked Gapps Ver2 57.12 MB


The problem is that Now needs to be installed first, I am sure that the CM9 releases have more space available but that is what I did my testing on.

My goal is to be able to use every bit of system space for the ROM, allowing us to make the ROMs as good as we can with out having to scalp them to fit on our system partition.

The last couple times ive tried CM9 navigation it has worked so maybe it is just whether or not the system thinks it has enough space to open it each time. Thank you for making this so great BSydz!!

There's a flashable zip file that comes with this one. No need to clean anything. So long as you're running CM9, this should work. It works on adamto's CM9, but I'm not sure about Paranoid. Basically, it replaces voice search with Now, opening it when you open the search tab on the top of your home screen. Do not use this with CM7, or it will brick your phone.

The point for this gapps was to open up space under /system. That's where the gapps is stored and there isn't enough space for the full ROM and gapps with google now. If I can figure out my building problem I'll make another version that doesn't use space from /data and will use at least minimize the space used in /system.

Just updated both packages to fix Facelock feature. Spent hours testing on my dev phone and couldn't even get Facelock to show in the settings, then I decided not to skip the device setup, and there it was. Long story short Facelock requires you to log in to an account, to even show up in lockscreen options.

Haven't had the time to test the JB version, but the fix was pretty straight forward.

I had to create placeholders in system/vendor/pittpatt, so that the symlinks could be created, and fix the install-optional.sh to put the files in the right places.

If you are already setup, you will probably need to wipe cache, install ROM (to remove any old Gapp files), install GNow/Gapps then reboot, and all should be fine.

Let me know how it goes.

Works well, only note I have is that it doesn't work with your GPU test kernel. However, the May 6 build is rather fine on it's own. I just wanted to be thorough.

Maybe there's something I'm just not seeing, but how do you download any of these files? When I click a link to Mediafire, all I get is a page full of ads. There is no link to download anything.

Edit: never mind... Apparently the site didnt like any of my desktop browsers. It's downloading on my tablet now.
