I have installed LineageOS 14.1 (+TWRP) on Samsung S5 g900f (klte) with Google Apps mini. I followed this guide: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/klte/install

I also added Google Apps Mini zip during the installation phase.

Question: Is there a way to remove Google Apps mini and install Google Apps nano (or pico) package? (Without reinstalling from scratch)

Regards

    Flashing the LOS package again (to restore /system to a clean state) then flashing the GAPPS you need should be sufficient - I don't see a need to do a factory reset here. Of course, do a nandroid backup as always. – Andy Yan Jan 17 '18 at 9:56
  • I'm never flashing GApps – but AFAIK the OpenGApps "flashables" perform a cleanup as first step. Apart from that, I'd second what @AndyYan pointed out. – Izzy Jan 17 '18 at 12:24
  • @global_warming GApps are installed on the /system permission – which a factory-reset never touches. So the way you've put it (as only criterion) it makes no sense. – Izzy Jan 17 '18 at 12:26
  • Thankyou, @AndyYan and others, by falshing LOS again.. is it going to loss all the installed apps and local configurations? Or are there preserved? – Fabiano Tarlao Jan 17 '18 at 14:49

    Everything's preserved unless you do a factory reset manually. – Andy Yan Jan 17 '18 at 15:45
