Manual apply Open GApps to Android 7.1 on HikeyBoard

by Zamir

Today I decided to make my HikeyBoard an Android video box. So I need Google Play.

After downloading the Android binary, I just flashed it following

And then it comes to the OpenGApps. I downloaded the OpenGApps zip but unfortunately I can not reboot to recovery on HikeyBoard. So I decided to apply it manually. My final steps like the following.

enable developer options – USB debug.

adb kill-server

adb root

adb shell mount -o rw,remount /;

adb shell mkdir /tmp;

adb push * /tmp

adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system;

replace ‘install -d’ with mkdir in META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary

offer variables a fixed value in META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary to make things easier
