Sorry, I'm not using the skate anymore. :blink: I moved over to FairPhone... :D
The last version I made of these gapps was based on the goo.im 4.3 gapps http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20130813-signed.zip
Note: the most recent PA Gapps do not work anymore. I don't know why.
You just need to remove these folders/files for it to fit:
And in the \system\app directory path, keep only the apks below at the minimum (you can get gmail, g+ and others from the google market)
use 7zip to do it
Provision.apk is replaced with SetupWizard.apk by the GAPPs zip.
New version of the GAPPS up, by the way:
gapps-4.3-stripped-20131118-bazyx.zip 11.8 MB
Updated with the latest PA 4.3 GAPPs. They will not be further updated so you will need to include further updates in your /system partition youself (using Link2SD or Titanium backup or another one)
Please note that this GAPPs WILL replace LatinIME.apk with a trimmed down version containing only English dictionary. Just remove that file from the zip if you do not want that.
It works thanks :-)
Calibration is to be found in "Settings -> Device/More... -> ZTE Skate Settings"
For info, I updated the GAPPs I posted earlier:
The changes are in the updater-script.
The difference is that more ".apk" files are removed during installation. This reflects my personal preferences and might not be adapted to everyone's use. These are mostly apps that can be installed again via Play Store and live wallpapers (do you really need those on our feeble Skate?)
List of apk in /system/app/ that are removed in this new version. Calendar.apk
List of apk in /system/app/ that were already removed by the original script:
Note: There were some other apks deleted by the original script but they were not present anyway, so I cleaned those out.
I updated my stripped 4.3 GAPPs.
- Removed the Google Play Services (will be installed by the Play Store)
- Added a few missing libraries (looked everywhere to find what was needed or not and finally had to guess a little while keeping it small)

Thanks for this. I took the long road in the meanwhile. Found C3C0's Skatie in TPT image format and installed it. Used my backed up apk of TPT Helper to install it and could repartition according to my likings. I am testing the 4.3 ROM installation right now. Will let you know about the stripped GAPPS in a short while.
I made one: gapps-4.3-stripped-20130903-bazyx.zip (14.0 MB)
I used this one as basis:
And replicated the configuration as found in this one:
Some of the apks that were removed could be installed directly from the file manager. Just take them out of gapps-jb-20130813-signed.zip and copy them to your sd card first.
I could not test it yet as I am partitioned on 200 MB + 2 MB cache and that is not enough for the ROM itself (202 MB)... So I need to install a GB ROM, use TPT helper to partition to 230 MB + 2 MB cache and try again. If anyone has a zip with this layout, I 'd be glad to use it directly. Less hassle.
Tested it with 230 MB main + 2 MB cache partition. Google Play works. What else do you need?
If you are more concerned by ethics than by bigger bang for the buck, do like me:get a www.fairphone.com
It is a very good phone and completely open (i.e. rooted)
Plus they will most probably support installing other OS'es like FireFoxOS and Ubuntu Touch.
Not many phone producers go that far.
