Google Blocks GApps On Uncertified Devices: How To Bypass

In a move to establish more constancy among devices and its set of standards, Google is now blocking the flashing of Google Apps (better known as GApps) package on unrecognized devices. The Android devices of the latest built have to undergo the Compatibility Test Suite(CTS) to use GApps. Failing to do so, the device will be labeled uncertified and the user’s access to his Google account gets blocked. Although Google Blocks GApps on the uncertified devices, it spares the devices loaded with custom ROM.

Some sources are citing that Google is currently in the process of banning latest firmwares from using GApps. This may refer to uncertified devices. Sources again reveal that any software made after the 2nd week of March 2018 will have to follow the rule of using GApps. A developer liam_davenport from XDA also confirms the issue who was himself banned from signing-in on account of non-certification of the device.
