Error 70 Gapps install – Fixed

If you are encountering the following error while trying to flash Gapps with your custom rom:

Error 70: Insufficient storage space available in System partition.

Here is the simple fix for the problem:

  • Flash a smaller size version of the Gapps ROM via TWRP.  Pick either Pico/Micro versions of the ram.
  • For Nexus 5 and CM14/Lineage the Micro Version works just fine
  • After installing the smaller version you can install the remaining apps via the Play Store
