The folks who do this sort of thing have updated the Google Apps package today, handing you a shiny new flashable to go with that 4.2.1 AOSP ROM you're about to download.

Technically a grey area, Google doesn't release their closed source applications for redistribution. Instead, they get sucked out of a phone running the current version, and blood, sweat, and scripts are used to create a package that gives you all the Googley services you would expect from an Android phone.

Yesterday's 4.2.1 updates didn't bring about any new versions of the Gapps, so we imagine this update is more along the lines of streamlining and enhancing the installation process -- the biggest step in the whole process. Grab em from the source link below so you have them the next time you need them.

Google apps package updated today, just in time for the new AOSP ROMs


I installed this earlier and kept getting an AOSP Keyboard Has Stopped Working error. I reloaded my backup from just before I installed and all is well again. My guess is that it doesn't really apply to CM10 yet (or at all?)

See, I got a notifcation from GooManager that an update was available, but it didn't say it was for a specific version. So now it all makes sense.

Link seems to be broken.
