I have got an alternate method who have rooted their phone. Install ES explorer (or any file manager with root permissions). Go to device/system/priv-app/gmscore.apk. install the gmscore.apk. this solved my problem which even persisted after a hard reset also….. Let me know if this works for u
I talked to a Samsung technician. She told me to remove my battery from the back of my Samsung S5 for a minute or 2. Replace the battery and turn on the phone. The gapp message was gone. My phone is working ok now. Patricia
