We are not responsible for anything that may happen to your phone as a result of installing custom roms and/or kernels. you do so at your own risk and take the responsibility upon yourself.
"This is a user friendly thread. All feature requests will be heard and considered. I am not against anything that doesn't stray too far away from the original idea of the ROM! Helping one another is also encouraged! Please be respectful and you will always be treated the same way, we are all here for a good experience."
The Pure Nexus Project aims to bring stability and features to your Nexus device, while keeping Google's vision in line and not straying too far away from that. If you are looking for a stable ROM with true tested features and minimal bugs, then this is the place to be.

Latest TWRP (if you don't already have it installed)
==> The installation instructions are there. Click on "Primary (Recommended)" and you'll see the file there.
Kernel Adiutor Mod
Requirements: ROM, Gapps, SuperSU
*** If you start fresh:
1. Reboot into recovery
2. Go to the "Wipe", tap on "Advanced Wipe" and can check all the boxes except for the "Internal storage" one, then simply "Swipe to Wipe"
3. Flash the ROM
4. Flash the Gapps
5. Flash SuperSU
Then reboot to system and you're done.
*** If you're upgrading / "dirty flashing":
1. Reboot into recovery
2. Go to "Advanced Wipe" and check only "Dalvik cache" and "Cache", then "Swipe to Wipe".
3. Flash the ROM
4. Flash SuperSU
4. Do another Cache + Dalvik cache wipe (OPTIONAL)
Then reboot to system.
*** If you're using a custom kernel:
1. Flash the ROM (clean or dirty flash, depending on your choice)
1' flash the Gapps (only for clean ROM installations)
2. Flash your preferred custom kernel
3. THEN flash SuperSU
And reboot to system
*** Moving between custom kernels:
* After flashing the first custom kernel, if you decide to try another one, you MUST either:
>> dirty flash the ROM before changing the kernel. OR
>> extract the "boot.img" file found inside the "...ROM...zip" and flash it in recovery.
>> Then will you be able to safely move to a different kernel.
You also must flash SuperSU AFTER the kernel, otherwise you'll lose the root previleges.
