4. GAPPS (Google Apps)

Google-branded apps should not come pre-installed on any custom (AOSP) ROM due to licensing restriction, so we need to flash it separately. Download GAPPS 5.1 for cm-12.1 from http://androidxda.net/gapps/




1. push cm zip and gapps into sdcard ( as root )

adb push cm-12.1-20150422-UNOFFICIAL-sprout.zip /sdcard
adb push gapps-5.1-2015-04-20-15-56-24.zip /sdcard

2. boot into recovery

adb reboot recovery

3. wipe system, data and cache partition through recovery
go to “Wipe” -> “Advanced Wipe” and select “Dlvik Cache”, “System”, “Data”, “Cache” then wipe




4. Flash cm zip

The ROM and Gapps have already been pushed earlier into sdcard by adb.
