    Hello,

    I am using OpenGApps. It worked fine with version 0.5.11. The problems were there when I updated to 0.5.16, I think 0.5.14 worked, too.

    Best regards

    Yes. Exactlly. It works fine with version 0.5.11 and 0.5.12. The issue occurred since the version 0.5.14 and above.

    Where can I find version 5.12?

    Where can I find version 5.12?

    Open the app "emteria.OS installer" of your computer, find a grey button called "Skip login and use local image", which is under the "AUTHORIZE" button, click it and will open a folder box shows all the version you have downloaded. Choose the folder "rpi3-v0.5.12" if you've downloaded and installed before.

    Unfortunately, I have never downloaded version 5.12. Therefore, it does not appear on the list.

    Dear everyone asking for an older version:

    The "System optimization" screen is NOT a bug. The system is deliberately designed to show this message. Once again: it is not this screen which freezes the system, this behavior is caused by OpenGApps. Our notification screen just warns you about it, it doesn't actually do anything. So if you don't like OpenGApps to kill the performance, don't install them and you won't see the screen. Or you can wait until the CPU and IO load settle down and your system will be usable again.

    Installing an older version of emteria.OS won't fix this behavior - the system will still need time to finish all the OpenGApps initialization and will be extremely slow until it's done.

    OK...
    I will use Aptoide then. The only thing I regret is that I have many licensed programs that I would like to test on this system.
    I will wait for a new release.

  • So, perhaps the most of us are interested in the answer of the question how to integrate the GApps into your ROM without getting high CPU and I/O load.

    If the load is caused by the GApps itself, isn't the question valid why it works on other custom ROMs for various android phones? Can the custom ROM make some configuration changes to allow a better integration?

    It would be great if it is possible to integrate the Google Play Services and the Google Play Store as a user of your ROM to allow installation of already paid applications (so the license checks succeed) and of applications that rely on the Play Services.

    I can't come up with a way for this. If you have an idea, please let me know.

    I don't know any other ROM for a device with about 700MB of RAM and SD card as primary persistent memory storage (for the system itself, not for user data) which supports GApps.

    It is possible. Install it, wait X hours for all the background downloads and optimizations to finish, restart it several times and it will be fine. You have to wait additional time after each boot though.

    Could using a MicroSD of category A1 or A2 (currently not yet on the market) solve the problem?
    I had posted a post about this but no one was able to respond:

    https://forum.emteria.com/discussion/386/faster-microsd-card-r-w-speed-or-more-iops#latest

    Theoretically, increasing the IOPS should also reduce the MicroSD overload.

  • I don't know, we didn't test it. It looks promising, but I can't give any evidence. It has to be tested first.

    anyway I bought a MicroSD in promo on amazon.
    I attach the link:

    This looks very promising.

    is there a way to download an older version of emteria say 0.5.11 which was working?

    I'm currently writing this on 5.11, I have had gapps for sometime. Now launcher is crashing very often, apps that take 80mb of CPU mostly crash. Is gapps not working with v5.16?

  • They do, but they need a long time to settle down and you have to wait after each boot.

    How long does it usually takefor the wait (if you know) after each boot?

  • After the initial setup (which can take up to several hours and multipe restarts)? It depends on the device, sd card and other apps... maybe a couple of minutes?

  • Basically after the initial setup I should get gapps and let it run overnight?

  • From what I have heard, you should leave it for 2-3 hours and restart manually. Multiple times.

    Ah ok. Thanks! =)

    In my case I have to wait for approx. 45 minutes. You can work during this time, but the system performance is very bad.

  • @kalkov the solution I proposed worked!

    I did some tests and putting a MicroSD type A1 the system is much more stable, faster and I was able to install the Playstore.
    "System Optimization" disappeared at the second start and did not appear anymore.
    The Playstore is very stable, except when you need to install apps. I suggest direct installation from the search menu instead of selecting the application and installing it from there.

    I attach links for reference on which model I have purchased:

    https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B06XYT37NK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I would like to know whether other people have solved the problem with this solution.

  • Awesome, thanks for sharing! I think it will be a little bit too expensive for most users, but it is definitely good to know. We will add this hit to our help tutorial.

    I am very pleased about this.
    If I have any news on this, I will be happy to share it with the community.
