    So I'm still on 4.1.2 and like it where I am, however, I'd like to have the newest GApps. (I have the one of the first releases of 4.2 gapps but everything is out of date)

    So those will work on my AOKP jb-milestone 1 and will be the newest 4.2.2 Gapps?

    goo.im has all the versions of gapps, so if you pick the latest one, it'll be the latest ones

    Ok, I'm just confused because they say not compatible with 4.1.x, I know theres a certain GApps i need, but I dont want the 4.1.x GApps, I want the 4.2.2 (or if the 4.3 are out) GApps that will work with a 4.1.2 ROM.

    Let me help here,

    Unless you are running a custom ROM in which the developer specifies a GApps package, it doesn't really matter if you flash the most current GApps. A case in which a developer may customize GApps is for themed GApps, in which case you would be relying on the developer to keep that package updated.

    When you flash most GApps packages, if it is out of date, go to the Play Store and update your GApps.

    You may be wanting to avoid the extra time to download updates, but you would conceivably update a Google app anyway when a new version is available.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks, that helps. What I'm really looking for is a newer version of the camera app, just because i have the first sphere release and im assuming it has improved but most of all, i want group messaging, will flashing the newest GApps give me that?

    unless I'm remembering wrongly (could be), the camera isn't part of Google's Apps; rather, it's part of whichever firmware you are flashing.

    And that is correct. the camera app is not part of the gapps package.

    Not 100% of the time y'all. AOKP has long offered a GApps package which offered a modified gallery app which changes certain camera functionality. I'll look around and see what I can come up with for ya.

    Thanks, sounds great! I'm not sure if ive mentioned this, i do have 4.2 Gapps, just want an updated version, I'm mostly interested in the group messaging with iPhones aspect of all of this though. (It could also not be possible to use the group messaging on 4.1.2 no matter what Gapps i have, i really dont know)
