Pixel Black Bootlogo with Material Style Bootloader:
Download link:

Google Pixel Black Bootlogo Material.zip - https://www.androidfilehost.com/
Google Pixel Black Bootlogo Material.zip - http://d-h.st/

White
Google Pixel White Bootlogo Material.zip - https://www.androidfilehost.com/
Google Pixel White Bootlogo Material.zip - http://d-h.st/
Then flash it on TWRP

Google Assistant (Optional):
Download this 2 files:
GoogleAssistantBuildProp.zip
tweak.prop
Place it on your phone together then flash it on TWRP.

After restart, go to
Settings>apps>Google App>Storage>Manage Storage>Clear All Data

Your Google Assistant should work when you say "OK Google" or when you hold the home button in your navbar.

There are some bugs on this feature like repeated enrollment of hotword "OK Google" and OK Google Settings force crash (I personally experienced it).
If you have the solution for this bug, feel free to share it on this thread.

What's the look and feel of this mod? Have you experienced any crashes? Will I totally loose the Google Now launcher and all my shortcuts and widgets on the home page?

Your google now launcher would remain installed but in order to trigger the assistant for the first time you would need to clear your google app cache which would clear all your custom folders and widgets on home screen

That's what I thought... Need to ponder upon the matter now...

I got the navbar icons because I use BOKROM with substratum engine support. Then download "N Navbar - Substratum" applied.
The new Google keyboard is not yet available for arm devices. It is available for arm64 though.


Go to system>apps>3 upper right buttons>show system>Phone>Permissions

Check all Permissions

Next is to go to system>apps>3 upper right buttons>gear icon>phone app and choose phone

Your Phone app should be working now
