I have created a flashable zip for my personal use that essentially creates the pixel experience - or as close to it as possible and have decided to share it with you guys.

Note
If you use or modify this please give credits where due.


Feautures:
  • Installs Pixel Exclusive apps
  • Debloats unnecessary apps
  • Modifies build.prop
  • Pixel bootanimation
  • Flashes custom Pixel boot image
  • Enables unlimited full res uploading within Google Photos

Prerequisites/compatability
This has only been tested on CM14.1 with OpenGapps Pico but should work on any CM or AOSP Nougat (7.0+) ROM.

Installation
  1. Install any CM/AOSP =>7.0+ ROM
  2. Install OpenGapps Pico
  3. Install PixelExperience zip
  4. Done!

    If installing a ROM update this also needs to be flashed again to perform the build.prop modifications etc.

Features Expanded
Installs Pixel Exclusive apps
- Google Pixel Launcher
- WallpaperPicker
- Google Pixel Dialer
- Google Pixel Assistant
- Google Pixel Bootanimation
- Google Pixel Ringtones

Debloats unnecessary apps
Code:
delete_recursive("/system/app/BasicDreams");
delete_recursive("/system/app/CMFileManager");
delete_recursive("/system/app/Email");
delete_recursive("/system/app/Exchange2");
delete_recursive("/system/app/Galaxy4");
delete_recursive("/system/app/HoloSpiralWallpaper");
delete_recursive("/system/app/HexoLibre");
delete_recursive("/system/app/NoiseField");
delete_recursive("/system/app/PhaseBeam");
delete_recursive("/system/app/PhotoTable");
delete_recursive("/system/app/PicoTts");
delete_recursive("/system/app/QuickSearchBox");
delete_recursive("/system/app/SoundRecorder");
delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/Contacts");
delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/Dialer");
delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/Launcher3");
delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/Screencast");
delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/SoundRecorder");
delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/Trebuchet");
Modifies build.prop
Adds build.prop modifications to enable GoogleAssistant.
Code:
ro.product.model=Pixel XL
ro.opa.eligible_device=true
Pixel Bootanimation
Installs 1080x1920 Pixel boot animation.

Flashes custom Pixel boot image
Installs the a custom boot image that mimics the Pixels devices.
See here for a preview

Please Note
The custom boot image is non-volatile meaning it will persist regardless of what system/ROM you are using, this is due to it being stored within a separate partition that is not usually accessed. To revert to the default boot/splash image check the download section for a revert zip.

FAQ
If installing on a non fresh build (clean install) and you previously had Google Now enabled you may need to wipe data for the Google app then long press the home button to bring up the default assist app.

To bypass the issue with Google Assistant asking to retrain voice data everytime install this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....chopassistant and follow the instructions within the app (it simply automatically exits the screen).

But this is to replicate a Pixel device. Messaging and Gallery are replaced with the Google variants, Google Messenger and Google Photos
