Installed odroidc2-eng-s905_5.1.1_master-241-v1.8.img with open_gapps-arm-5.1-mini-20160624 and worked like a charm.

Excellent work codewalker, thank you!

Tried the "new" opengapps install method.
After it reboots I get a progress bar at first and then (after about 1/4th) just a black screen that stays forever, even if I leave the device for hours)
Tried nano and mini.
Also tried aroma -> graphical installer display distorted, almost unreadable, and in the end fails with some error about system partition

Many people already reported the "open_gapps-arm-5.1-mini-20160624" package worked with v1.8 and v1.9.
Your SD card or eMMC could be have corrupted OS or corrupted gapps package.
Try to install the OS freshly.

BTW, which power supply do you use? unstable PSU could cause the issue.

PSU is a 2A USB charger from an Archos tablet.

Also, same result on v1.9
Didn't use self-install image though, since I just can't find my eMMC to SD adapter

Check the file name and size.
open_gapps-arm-5.1-mini-20160917.zip : 275.91MByte.

Or download the file on your PC and copy it to your ODROID.

Tested on C1/C2 Android 5.1 and they worked well.

Edit:
If you still have the problem, try below mirrors(I made).

The file extension should be zip not rar.
If you use Windows not Linux, try md5sum tool for Windows something like this. http://www.winmd5.com/

Did you change the extension to 'rar' from 'zip'? http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 00#p160508

Test your SD cards with below FFT(Fake-Flash-Test) utility first.
https://sites.google.com/a/rmprepusb.co ... ory-drives
Try the Formatter 4.0 with the SD cards before flashing OS image.
https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/

How did you copy the downloaded zip file to your C2?

No I didnt change the ext.. It just looks like a rar because of winrar on my pc.
I'm using a 8gb eMMC module. I used Win32DiskImager to set it up on my Pc. I used EaseUS Partition Master 11.0 to clear and format the eMMC module.
What format should I use? Its setup Fat32

Very weird.

Please check below steps.
1. You flashed V2.2 image on your 8GB eMMC and "VERIFY" was successful.
2. You should wait several minutes to complete the self-installation process on the first boot.
3. Android worked well without problem.
4. You copied the open_gapps-arm-5.1-mini-20160917.zip file to ODROID from PC.
5. Ran the odroid-utility app and opened "package install from storage".
But it said the file is corrupted... Right?

If you got the Google Play to work don't worry about it, problem with the apk installer you used (for a few of us) is the play store will think it has no internet connection.
