Mod Type:: GApps

Difficulty:: Very Easy

Mod Base:: AOSP

Mod Status:: Stable

Apply In:: CWM Recovery

Requires Root:: Yes

Android Version:: 4.2.2 + 4.3 (JB) + 4.4 (Kitkat)

Source::
What:
My collection of GAPPs that I use in my ROMs. I prefer all inclusive ROMs, so I bundle my preferred apps with my ROMs. But I get asked for a separate package to flash on another ROM (such as Vanir ) frequently enough to finally break down publish a package.

This collection is derived from multiple sources (Goo.im, Cyanogenmod, AOKP, user releases, developer's websites)

Works with:
Should work with any 4.2.X ROM. Confirmed on Toro, Maguro, Toroplus, N7/Grouper, N7 GSM/Tilapia, Manta, Mako

What was added + why: (3rd party apps either open source or developer encourages bundling with custom ROMs)
Apex Launch - Because it's cool (Temp Discontinued for 4.4)
DashClock Widget - Because it's cool (Temp Discontinued for 4.4)
Gmail - WTFBBQ?!? Some Gapps do not include this?
Google Voice - Every phone needs an answering service
Titanium Backup - For easier crack flashing
Terminal - Older version that supports logging
Amazon Appstore - Moar Options > fewer options

What has been removed + why:
Google Music, Google Ears, more

Anything available in play store that does not have immediate user benefit

Additional Add-ons:
Photosphere Gallery - Because it's cool
4.3 Gallery - Because it's +0.1 cooler
Face Detection - Get here 4.2-Face_Unlock.zip
Wallet - Get here 4.2-Wallet.zip

Download:

Testing/Current Gapps
- Many of people have noted that my next release is often on the server a couple weeks early,...  I do this so people can benefit from updates before I acrew enough changes to justify an update.
- This testing file, will be updated in real time as I make changes, but will not have a log
- From now on, this file will always be labelled: Current-DHO-GAPPs.zip

Tangent:
Why remove apps that are in market?
Please as these get updated you do not want to over write them with older versions each time you install the Gapps. Also the Google Play version of some apps is nicer, such as Google ears and Calendar... so why should I provide worse apps to you? In addition, all the apps I removed are found in the store, play nice on the data partition (like Maps), are preserved through dirty installs, and just do not need to be bundled IMHO.

Other:
If people use it, I will keep it up-to-date. So say thanks if you find it useful.

Buy me a beer?

Please correct me if I am wrong, but a Skyrocket is a Galaxy SII.
How did you flash? CWM>? Any error message? Was it on another Gapp package?

I would like universal compatibility, so if I need to change anything in the binaries please let me know the error. My Meta-inf maybe an issue.... I will update it in the next build.
