    Haven't been following this thread for a long time, thanks for your work Cobalt! Is there any progress with Google+? I was pretty impressed that you got the Play Store working (at least for browsing), so I had a spark of hope

    Hey, long time no see. Unfortunately, there is no progress with Google+. The OAuth2 authorisation can not be used with patched apks, therefore it will be hard to achieve this.

    To download APK's with the patched Google vending app I found a workaround how to do that.

    You'll need the following components:

    1. Google Login services
    2. Google vending (patched beta2)
    3. APK-Downloader EXTENSION (which is NOT the same downloader as posted in an other tread.
    Get it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....apkdownloader

    Then to download from Google vending:

    1. Open Google vending, find the file you want and click on it
    2. When the details of the app appear, press the share button at the top right
    3. Choose APK downloader, press get and wait until it downloaded

    That's clever, so you basically share the link from Google Play. I also wonder if it's possible to get the Android push notifications work. Android runtime is running constantly on the background and some apps like soundcloud are able to push notifications about new uploads, but on the other hand Instagram notifications never worked for me.

    I gave this a shot using 10.2.1 but got some google play services errors, then a crash. Anyone else on 10.2.1 try it out?

    Certain apps notifications work, but most of the newer ones don't, even with the app running -- it depends what method they're using I believe.

    For my Z10 I have noticed that the android runtime seems to load things faster since I upgraded to 10.3.0.1154. The only thing giving me any real issues has been I can't use instagram to upload videos anymore. I did have to downgrade that app to version 6.2.2 to avoid a crashing issue but other than that I feel like I have seen nothing but improvements. Knowing that the little bugs I have now will probably be fixed when I see 10.3.1 become official and eventually released for my device I felt it's worth going without uploading an instagram video for only 8 weeks or so. I would recommend the upgrade.

    Tried this but all that happens is the "apk downloader" app essentially mirrors the play store app. Tapping "install" does nothing just as before.

    Well, I did not say to press the install button (it's deactivated). Press the SHARE button and then select APK Downloader.

    That's what I did.
    In play store, tap "share " and chose apk downloader.
    Then apk downloader opens showing exactly what was in play store. (why I said it mirrors play store).

    Ah, this was a misunderstanding from my side, sorry. So if you tap the Get button, you can download the file, right?

    Hi, thanks for your work, i've tried to patch gmaps but whenever I try to start the application I received the message that both Gmaps and Google play services stopped and app closes. Z10 with 10.3.0.1154

    Well, the funny thing about the GMaps Patcher is, that does NOT patch the Google Maps app. Google Maps app run out of the box and must not be patched.

    The patcher is used to patch apps that depend on the Google Maps part that is integrated in Google Play services. Example apps that use this feature are Strava running, Lyft, Adidas Micoach or similar apps. These apps try to display Maps content and fail without patching.

    It removes that message, but not from Google Maps app, as this package can not be recompiled without errors. It works with any other app though.

    If you want to get rid of the "Google Play services are not installed" message in Google Maps app you should follow the steps described in this post:

    If you patch the app to Google and then install it, neither?

    No, the patcher doesn't touch any licensing stuff. It just adds support for Google Play services (not Google Play store) and fixes some compatibility stuff with some apps that build on Google Play services.

    Huh, now I see your problem, I did not realize what is happening. The Google Play app should not be mirrored. On my device (10.3.0.1154) the link of the app is pushed to APK Downloader and then I can press "GET" to download the file.

    And this is how it should look like:
