I have a problem with my Motorola Moto E 2014. After I successfully flashed LineageOS 14.1 and also installed a sd card as internal storage I wanted to install an OpenGApps package (it is the correct one for my phone) and when flashing the zip an error message pops up, saying i do not have enough storage available. Is there a way to flash the zip onto the sd card or do i have to use the smaller versions of GApps?February 10, 2017 at 10:29 AM #12602
By default the GApps that you are installing through recovery, it goes to /system partition, so that the GApps will work and faster. SDcard does not play any role in installing GApps.
If you have less memory on your phone’s system memory, then flash the Nano or pico Lineage 14.1 Nougat GApps package and then install all required apps from Play Store.
If your phone supports moving Apps to SDcard, then putting an SDcard will help you releasing some memory from internal storage.
