Install Playstore on Android 9 image

It took me a bit to find why playstore does not work on the android 9 image out of the box. Here's a way to install:

download arm64 pico gapps, extract and convert with attached script:
# cd open_gapps...
# ../

Now install gapps
# adb push gapps.tar /sdcard/
# adb root
# adb remount
# adb shell :

tar -xvf /sdcard/gapps.tar -C /
rm /sdcard/gapps.tar
rm -rf /system/priv-app/PackageInstaller /data/system/package_cache/1/PackageInstaller-16 /data/dalvik-cache /cache/dalvik-cache

After Reboot
  • add all perms to google packages in system app config.
  • disable androidsetup if crashing.
Have fun.

How do I do any of this???  I am brand new to Android development.  This is LITERALLY the first thing I am attempting.
1.  How and where do I enter these commands?
2.  Do I need to make a physical connection between my PC and the Rock64?  If so, what type of cable do I need.
3.  What apps or programs do I need?
4.  I'm not sure what other questions I even need to ask, but an hour of googling has taken me round in circles, so I back here asking the "dumb" questions.
