  1. As normal with Android issues, there is conflicting information. In this article, it tells you to install Gapps, then once installed it tells you to wipe cache/dalvik, then reboot.

    BUT, if you go to another article on this same site, (, it tells you to wipe cache/dalvik BEFORE installing Gapps.

    So, here we are, the same Lineage OS support site, and we have conflicting instructions. I've run into this in every thing I've ever done on Android, digging through conflicting and just flat out wrong instructions. Which set of instructions is correct? Logically, I'd think wiping the cache/dalvik BEFORE installing Gapps sounds more correct, but who knows. I am here because I'm looking for expert and correct instructions, but instead I get conflicting instructions. So I'm left to just wing it and guess.

  2. Haha, and it gets worse. IF you go to LineageOS Wiki it tells you the following:

    Google apps should be installed via recovery immediately after installing LineageOS. Exact steps vary, but the process is similar to that of installing LineageOS:

    IMPORTANT: If you reboot into LineageOS before installing Google apps, you must factory reset and then install them, otherwise expect crashes.

    This seems very important, but it's not mentioned in either this article or the one about which version of Gapps to install. Why do they leave this seemingly important fact out? I can only guess it's to frustrate people. Why else?

    Bottom line, before you want to do ANYTHING, spend two days reading every single article you can. Each will leave something out, or give you incorrect information. It's up to you to read every set of instructions that you can find, and piece together what to do. No single set of instructions ever seems to be complete or correct. You have to decide what to take from each source, what to ignore, and in which order to do things, and maybe, just maybe, you'll get lucky and you'll get something to work. Good luck.
