Gapps 4.2 for LG Lucid 4G

It is always necessary to flash the GAPPS package along side your Rom install since Google Apps are not open source like Android itself. Gapps can’t be distributed inside of the Rom itself they have to be added in their full form afterwards.

Developer Connorh333 took it upon himself to update the Gapps pack. Included in his Gapps is the new Google Hangout, New Music, New Play Store, TalkBack, Gmail, New Mapps, StreetView, and GSMscore!

This has been tested for CyanogenMod 10 B3

What you need:

  • An LG Lucid.
  • Root Access in the LG Lucid.
  • ClockWorkMod Recovery (Not sure if they have TWRP for the Lucid, but it is also untested, but out of common sense it should work.)

How to install:

  1. Flash/Reflash B3. It will keep your stuff, no need to wipe the cache, dalvik cache, or factory reset.
  2. Flash the 4.2 GAPPS [Thank Connorh333 for the GAPPS and link.]
  3. Get a system app uninstaller, uninstall Google Search and uninstall GALLERY!
    • Delete the gallery .apk and Google Search. (/system/app)
    • Delete them and uninstall them if you must.
    • Google Search won’t be named ‘Googlesearch.apk’ or anything similar, just look for the logo.
    • Recommend System App Uninstaller click here.
  4. Go to Google Play, re-install Google Search.
  5. Install the Gallery2.apk
  6. Enjoy 4.2 GAPPS.
