That experience is one month old, haven't tried with updated versions. I need my phone 24/7 now so I can't try that at the moment but if someone has time and patience try this:

1. Flash latest nightly (I guess is working ok, have 26 on mine)

2. Flash remove modules to get some space

3. Flash offline speech module

4. Install Google search from play store

5. Give your feedback ;)

Yeah, this is the plan, I was waiting for the 4.4.3 merge to do it, but now I'm not at home.
I'll do it tonight.
You can use the 4.4.3 with 4.4.2 gapps anyway.
Using 4.4.3 gapps on 4.4.2 is worse. That is why I have waited for 4.4.3 merge.

GApps package update

 

Recent changes:

- Updated Core Base to Android 4.4.3 from Google Nexus 5 Factory Image.
- Google Play Store updated to v4.8.20
- Verified all apks are properly zipaligned - Thanks @LordNerevar for the heads up
- HDR support files from the Nexus 5 factory image have been added. This may help users who install Google Camera from the Play Store.
 
Please use it only on 20140608 or later version of CM11, or ROMs that are based on 4.4.3 android.
For 4.4.2, keep using the old version.
 
Please remove Google Play Sore update before flashing the update to save some (12MB) space on /data partition.
 
It looks like our ROM get's bigger and bigger as the time goes (GApps too. Now 2MB larger than previous version.). Now we have only 10MB left after the GApps installation.
Keep this in mind if you have installed some of the modules too.

Up-To-Date Play Services package introduced to save some space on /data (24MB). I didn't wanted to include this in the base gapps package to keep the gapps package "universal".

 

It replaces the existing one with the latest 4.4.52 (1174655-034) version.

 

Please remove Google Play Services update before flashing the update to save some (24MB) space on /data partition.

 

After the installation, there will be only 7MB free space remain on /system.

New version for 4.4.4 is up.

 

If you want to keep the Up-to-Date Play services on /system, install it again, after update.

You don't have to ask for every new version.

I update it regularly when I have time.

Are there any differences between this flashable Google services and the automatic update when installing the rom?

The same question goes to Google search, any advantages by flashing the addon modules?

No, there is no difference. The only purpose of the Play Services package to save some space (24MB) on /data.

Mostly the same with other modules.

Thanks for the explanation, so we save some space on data by sacrificing space on system

Exactly.

Free space is waste of space on /system, so better to put things there if we have free space there.

Hi rhen,

Can you please clarify what you mean by "remove Google Play Services update". How do I remove it? What are the steps I need to follow?

Thanks,

Thanks,

Go to Google Settings -> Android Device Manager and turn off Remotely locate this device.

Go to Settings -> Apps -> Google Play services -> Uninstall updates

 

After this, you can update your gapps if needed and install play services modul.

Hi rhen,

 

I didn't know about the "Google Settings" part (which was unticked anyway) and when I go to the "Settings -> Apps" part, there are never any updates to uninstall, so I guess I am all up to date.

 

Many thanks for this gapps package, and for your quick answer to my question. And many thanks to all at Modaco for putting this CM11 rom on the G300.

Gapp, Play services and Google Search updated.

 

changes:
- Google Bookmarks Sync updated to v4.4-927798
- Improved feedback to user in case of failed install - Thanks @bigsupersquid for the suggestion and code.
- Google Play Services updated to v5.0.82 (1253724-034) in the Play services package - download moved to the addon modules folder
- Google Search updated to v3.5.14.1234234.arm in the Google search module
 
Does anyone actually use the modules? Google Search, Offline speech recognition or any of the delete modules?
I'm thinking of stop updating modules (except Play services) since there is not much use with such a small free space.
 
I added a poll to able to see the module usage.

Hey rhen

 

 

First time I install a custom rom. 

 

Went from ICS (vodafone - blah) to CM11 with your gapps. 

 

Followed your instructions to the letter. Very simple. Like magic.

 

Seems to work well. 

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi! Noob here.

 

I just installed CM11 and tried to install the latest GApps from this thread.

 

However, the GApps install fails due to insufficient storage space on the system partition.

 

It says I need 130492 KB but only have 41776 KB available. The original post said there should be enough space with the latest nightly and the gapps. 

 

I formatted the /system partition as the instructions said, but still nothing.

 

Should I try another zip instead of the pa_gapps-modular-really-micro-4.4.4-20140629-signed, currently available on the links in the original post?

 

Is there a step I'm missing and failing to free up space?

 

Thanks!

 

 

*edit* - Whoops! My noob is showing. I copied the wrong zip to the SD. I got both GApps versions, one from the link you provided and one from the xda-developers mentioned in the CM11 thread. Your version installed OK.

GApps and Play Services packages updated.

 

Google Search and Offline speech recognition files (only for en-US) modules will be no longer updated.

 

I don't think there is any benefit of remove modules too. (Since there is not enough space for additional modules even if use all of the remove modules)

I will not follow these modules. Please notice if any of it needs to be updated.
