GApps 5.0/5.1 – Google Apps For All KitKat Based Custom ROM

Gapps for Lollipop is required to install on Android devices that have custom ROMs installed based on Android Lollipop 5.0 and 5.1. Gapps 5.1 can be downloaded and flashed with the help of custom recoveries like TWRP or CWM according to the availability of the device.

Lollipop Gapps comes in a wide range of varieties and packages that includes the CPU architecture of your custom ROM built upon such as the ARM, ARM64, x86 and x86_64 respectively. You need to choose the right platform before downloading, remember that if your ROM is running on a 64-bit CPU architecture then you need to download the Lollipop Gapps from the ARM64 platform. Doing so will give you a rich experience over apps control and installation, if you flash the other platform GApps then it might not work. It will simply block you from flashing or if it flashes then your device may enter into a boot loop. So be careful and check the custom ROM post or ask the author of the ROM before flashing the Gapps on your device.

Gapps 5.0 is designed for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms but the packages are limited to each platform. The 32 bit Gapps for Lollipop comes with 6 packages pico, nano, micro, mini, full and stock while the 64 bit Gapps for Lollipop comes with an additional package known as the Aroma which supports special devices only Galaxy S5, Oneplus One, Oneplus X, Moto X and Moto G.

    I downloaded the pico package. After scanning the zip file, chrome says that it will harm my computer? I downloaded gapps packages from several other sites before and never had that warning…
