    Having major probs – hoping someone might be able to hope, I flashed my HTC One M9 with the latest CANDYSIX ad it seems to be working – sort of. I tried several GAPPS installs that should have worked but they all errored out. I finally found one that installed – or at least it said it did. But I have absolutely NO apps – at all. Further, I can no longer access my phone from my PC. Sometimes an icon for the HTC shows up, but when I select it, it is empty – no files at all. The only way I can move anything around is by pulling the SD card, installing on the PC and then vica-versa. Any thoughts? I COULD have used RESTORE in TWRP but for some reason my original SD card is corrupted and I haven’t been able to recover it with any tools I’ve tried. Would sure appreciate any help – I’m about ready to bite the bullet and buy a new phone which I really can’t afford. THANKS!

      You might be flashing the wrong Google Apps package, try the latest package from our link, the second option is you need to format your card and then put it back in your phone as it could be a SD card issue
