Download MindTheGApps 11.0 Package For Android 11 [Best for Lineage OS – Mind The Gapps]

Today, we have the official Mind The Gapps 11.0 Google apps file for the Android 11 custom ROM. This gapps file is officially recommended by LineageOS 18.1 or any Android 11 custom ROM.

Finally, MindTheGApps is now available for download. It is supported on Android 11, Android 8.1 Oreo, and Android 9.0 Pie. Those who dabble with custom ROMs you must have observed how ROM developer always suggest using the GApps pack they provide with their ROM. Needless to say, compatibility is a big reason why they suggest doing so. Also, developers will not be able to guarantee a stable running of the ROM if users install different GApps packages instead of using the recommended pack.

Below we have discussed why MindTheGApps is mostly suggested by the LineageOS developers. LineageOS 15.1 was not compatible with the OpenGApps during the release of the first build. So, MindTheGAppsis the primary GApps that accompany LineageOS 15.1, Lineage OS 16, and LineageOS 18 or higher. MindTheGApps is maintained independently by XDA developer javelinanddart.

Also later in the post, you can find the official download link to get the latest MindTheGApps.

Why MindTheGApps Is Recommended..?

In a package that hasn’t been tested by the developer, there can be issues occurring on using it. It may lead to the crashing of Apps. The same is the case why OpenGApps is not suggested by Lineage developers. Also, OpenGApps are more supportive of the device for which the ROM was originally intended. So, using OpenGApps on a custom ROM pack (LineageOS in this case) may cause the breaking of certain Apps. A good example of the same would be any ported App modded to be used on other devices than the original.

Open GApps does not support the upcoming backup tool v2 in LineageOS as of now. Backup tool v2 is a new version of an already existing tool in LineageOS that is useful for back up and restoring /system add-on files.
