    I hope I'm not going to get butchered with my question even it sounds very simple but I cannot figure it out I try to download some of these ROMs from the files here and there not the Metro PCS ROMs after I downloaded them for example like the Pac-Man ROM I could not install an app from the App Store from Google I could not find the app application on the phone and I could not install one so how are you supposed to download apps from the Google App Store to install on the Pac-Man ROM what Tire King like Bank of America we're talking like WhatsApp Etc

    When you flashed the ROM, did you flash the gapps package afterwards?

    No I did not.. I have no idea what is that and what they do.... Really Did not know I need to do that..what gapps package.. Where to get it from... And do they come in different forms.... For different phones... Or Roms
     
  4. GApps is short for Google Apps. It is a separate download which contains all the applications and information your phone needs to access the Playstore. They are flashed to the device after flashing the ROM.

    Be sure to select the same version as the Android version of the ROM.

    Where did you download the ROM from? The developer normally recommends a specific package (or will provide one). If you give us a link to wherever you got the download from, that would help.
