Bare minimum Google play on XU4

Unread post by datto » Fri Dec 28, 2018 6:31 pm

Hi all,

Is there a was to install Bare minimum Google play on XU4 (maybe using opengapps) ?
https://dn.odroid.com/GAPPS/GAppsInstaller_kitkat.apk is loaded with google apps I'm not interested in.

I'm using the stock android 4.4 image from odroid.

Thanks,
Datto

That's not the way to get Google apps any longer. Download open gapps nano and flash with the included Odroid application.

How to flash opengapps ? I have seen references to an install menu under Odroid Utility but I don't have this menu (I'm using the latest 4.4 Android from Odroid).

Thanks,
Datto

You can't flash opengapps. Odroid xu4 does not support flashable zips.

I keep forgetting the XU4 doesn't, thanks for the correction.

Is there a reason the C2 can? Something to do with fastboot I'm guessing.
