you can upload, or put links elsewhere? no way to download them.
Simple wiping from recovery will not help. You can do this from recovery, but for the first you should set data partition type as ext4 and then format. If you already tried to install GAPPS and got error, then from recovery you will see, that data partition already ext4, but this is not correct and you should force recovery to change it and completely re-format. To do this, you should change ext4 to ext3, then format, then change back ext3 to ext4 and format again. I would never tried to add this to instruction.Is the same if instead of flash this userdata.img we simply wipe data from recovery?

And now you can try 2 ways:
7.1 When you tab in fastboot mode write in black window "fastboot format data"
7.2 When you tab in fastboot mode write in black window "fastboot flash data userdata.img"
Thank you for information. Question - you did format exactly after unlock or you tried to boot and setup system and then tried to install GAPPS? What you used to install GAPPS in that case? Would be nice to get more information, because this will help to adjust instruction.It seems to me, that hint 7.1 does not work in all cases.
I formatted the Data partition from fastboot. Rebooting into TWRP I still found Data to have the "auto" format information. I was expecting this to be ext4. Reformatting to ext4 from TWRP finally fixed the FS format of Data for me.
In such cases flashing "userdata.img" from fastboot is the safe way. Yet I didn't check this image. I just assume it is the image file of an otherwise empty ext4 formatted partition.
No. This error usually due to old/outdated webview. And I heard that such problem was with opengapps some times ago. I'm using other way to install GAPPS.If error 963 means "unfortunately Google Play Services has stopped" when trying to set up the Google account, then yes, that's it.
This problem is not connected to the ROM. It's connected to the way, how device bootloader locking/unlocking.Thanks Papka
Even when flashing with the latest MULTI 6.12.8 ROM which was reported as gaps working, it was not. Your fix did the trick and now I can install play apps etc. I will post to the weekly ROM release thread. This was on my Mi Pad 2
