Google play services on Sailfish 4.1

Since the new update i am unable to run google play services properly. The old procedure and script that helped before are no longer working, also some apps have stopped work altogether

I have it installed and working just as it did before.
I just removed this line from the script rm opengapps/Core/setupwizardtablet-all.tar.lz
This folder has a different name in the opengapps v.10 ( tried replacing it with its new name in the script, didn’t work )

could you be so kind as to share the new edited script sir

Is this working with xperia 10 II? Because I get errors while installing it on 10 II.

I found a solution thanks to @babo, had to change two lines based off of several contributions and i now have google play installed, i can share the script if you want plus you have to have opengapps 10 downloaded in the Downloads folder

Yes of course I want to have the script. ARM64 opengapps or just ARM?

Yes send the script to me please.

Had to make the script look for the open gapps in my download folder and delete this

Could you share entire script

Sorry could upload the file

Copied opengapps.sh to Downloads, also opengapps v10 in Downloads. But get errors…

try ‘sh’ instead of ‘./’

On my Xperia 10 ii, I got the following errors.
The installation seems to not work with 64bits.

It should work, maybe u didn’t download the arm 64 version of opengapps, as i got it to work with my xa2 ultra on 4.1 using the arm 64 file

Should i share a dropbox link of the file?

Yes please. It looks like it won’t work with xperia 10 II.

Did u download the ARM 64 version of Opengapps nano?

Also delete or move the other opengapps files in the download folder

Yes opengapps 64 and still no luck. And script don’t work →
bash: ./install_opengapps.sh: not found
