How to install google apps on fairphone open os

Hi there,

I know that Fairphone Open OS does not come with google apps. But is there a way to install them?

Background of this question: I want to use the google apps but I also want to be root so I thought that maybe using Fairphone Open Source OS + google apps is easier (and more stable) then rooting the “normal” Fairphone OS. Let me know if I’m wrong.

Best Regards


Hi Kai
That’s not difficult… Head over to and choose the amount of Google you want (rest is ARM and 5.1)


@rootboi made a nice guide how to install OpenGAAPS :slight_smile:
