When trying to install GAPPS through TWRP install I get the following error:

Skipping Md5 Check...

E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard/download/[Gapps].zip ....'

Error flashing zip........

So I have looked up and down for a way to install GAPPS on the phone and nothing seems to work.  I tried all sorts of gapps zip files (including the one included on the cm zip file) and trying to install after wiping davik and cache and all that and restarting recovery. I now tried installing a different rom and still no success.

ROMS install just fine and easy. I dont understand why i only get this error on gapps.zip
When installing “rawprogram0_unsparse.xml” , “rawprogram0.xml”  . I downloaded the unsparse.xml instead of the second one. (this post makes this very confusing since you cant load both at the same time) .  is that making the issue? if so how can i fix it?

I need help please.  Thanks.

Yes, there's a link for a QCN backup in step 4, but I also attached my backup here. That's better to perform the QCN backup/restore process with QPST/Software Download in ADB Diagnostics mode.
Before downloading GAPPS, make sure to choose the appropriate Platform and Android version.
If I have enough time, I will rewrite this guide. That needs several hours, I think.

I have for sure selected the appropriate plataform, ive tried about a dozen different packages from micro to stock. arm64 and normal arm. android 5.1, even tried a package for android 5 and 6. plus other various sources i could find including the one inside the cm 12.1 installation.   

I would like to maybe try another recovery if you have one (maybe downgrading twrp or reinstalling it if that is possible under your guidance).

I also tried the mokee OS, but same problem.  Im starting to think it might really be an issue with the recovery, even though it installs the OS just fine.

when reinstalling the cm12.1 zip provided on the post I noticed the twrp log attempting to install gapps but not completing that step and without error. followed by ONLY the OS being installed.

I think that last message was meant for the previous poster, but i did a suppossedly successful backup of the QCN, plus i dont think that is relevant to my problem. I havent installed any sim card on my phone yet...

I answered questions of multiple users in my last post.
Did you try to install the twrp created for TCL M3G? Link: http://www.needrom.com/download/twrp-recovery-for-m3g/
The twrp provided by me works perfectly with original UMI ROMs but I haven't yet tested it with TCL ROMs. The different partition structure can cause problems.

FIXED
UPDATE: I installed the TWRP .img you suggested and I was able to finally install gapps.  Judging by my bad experience I would just suggest people to install that one straight up, to avoid problems. I downloaded Flashify apk and after granting ROOT access, updated the new Recovery IMG through that. The I booted into TWRP and just clicked on the ZIP file.  I installed open_gapps-arm64-5.1...zip ...  It seems to be fine now.  



THANKS

Yes, after you transformed your UMI eMax mini into a TCL M3G, you should install the twrp recovery created for m3g.
