@fp1_wo_sw_updates: thanks for this topic, I’ve been a little confused too (perhaps even more than you…)
This is probably a very stupidly phrased question, but I’m not sure how else to put it:
Is opengapps “as google as” the regular gapps/GMS?
Also, I understand the issue of GAPPS/no root vs. no GAPPS (but maybe opengapps)/root. But that issue aside: would there ever be a reason to choose opengapps over gapps, if I had the option of using either? If yes, what are the advantages of choosing opengapps?
