I am going to sell my Nexus 5 and did a clean install. However I forgot to add the GApps img to it and now I have no apps on the phone to transfer the file to the root directory nor I can download them as there is no Play Store. The ADB sideload is supposed to flash .zip files and the GApps I found on this thread is called "radio-hammerhead-m8974a-2.0.50.2.30.img" - can I just zip this file and do the sideload?

edit: I'm dumb. WIth some more reading I figured out I could go to opengapps.org and make my own GApps zip file which I could transfer to the device using adb push and install it as a regular file to be flashed.

If you are sellling, why aren't you removing TWRP?

@GtrCraft, thank you sir, for your awesome work. I recently got my Nexus 5 screen fixed and installed everyone's favourite Pure Nexus (Android 7) and I'm loving it. :good: :victory:

If you get some time from your work/schedule, could you please add three more customisation?
1. Choose between dialer and voice assistant in lockscreen
2. Tile to switch b/w network modes (LTE/3G/2G)
3. Proximity speaker switch on call.

No worries if you can't, keep up the awesome work. :) :)

Has anyone else had the flashing process stop for a long time around 75% done? Mine has been sitting there for about five minutes now

Edit : OK I updated to the latest TWRP, downloaded the zip again and it's flashed fine

Good Day!

Guys,

With a clean install, for some reason after a few days I can't scroll up on Settings. It's seems like it's "pushing me down".

Any ideas?

Already cleared cache on recovery.

Great ROM, thank you. Does anybody else have issues with the power safe mode? Performance just goes downhill to 5-10%, not able to use my phone at all... The factory ROM decreases to about 50%....
Any ideas?.

I know it's slightly offtopic, but I need an app to unlock the phone on secure (home) wifi. Smartlock doesn't work good enough.

I see that some apps I used on stock rom don't work on this one, can you please suggest me some that work or give me any idea?

Thanx and sorry for offtopic.

That's a good question! I'm looking for the same.... But didn't find one that works. And I tried a lot of. Seems that we have to wait for a solid stable version of Xposed from Rovo and use the module. That was the only one that really worked.
It's a shame that Google doesnt implement that in smart Lock. That would be the only useful idea of smart lock. The current smart Lock functionality is a joke at all!

    PLEASE READ YOUR APPLICABLE PROCESS AND UNDERSTAND IT BEFORE ATTEMPTING. ALSO READ THE LATEST UPDATE POST AND THIS FAQ, IT HAS SOME GOOD INFO IN IT.

    Pre-requisites: An unlocked bootloader and custom recovery installed. Use this guide if you need assistance with this (just read the beginning of the guide, follow sections 1 and 2, then come here).

    Which path do I choose? Clean install or dirty flash?

    Dirty flash: If you are already on Pure Nexus AND NOT flashing across Android versions (6.x.x to 7.x.x). Please check the update post linked about though. This keeps your apps and their data intact.
    Clean install: When you have problems with dirty flashing, when coming from another custom ROM or stock Android, OR when required (check the update post).

    Always do a clean install before reporting issues :)

    How to dirty flash:

    1. Download the latest Pure Nexus zip, your choice of root zip (optional), and your custom kernel (optional) onto your phone.
    2. Boot into TWRP and make a backup (remove any lock screen security before this, optional but HIGHLY recommended).
    3. Wipe cache and dalvik cache (optional).
    4. Flash Pure Nexus zip.
    5. Flash custom kernel (optional).
    6. Flash root (optional).
    7. Reboot and profit.
    How to clean install:

    1. Download the latest Pure Nexus zip, your choice of root zip (optional), and your custom kernel (optional) onto your phone.
    2. Backup any important data.
    3. Delete any Layers you have installed
    4. Boot into TWRP and make a backup (remove any lock screen security before this, optional but HIGHLY recommended).
    5. Wipe system, data, cache, and dalvik cache in Wipe > Advanced Wipe.
    6. Flash Pure Nexus zip.
    7. Flash custom kernel (optional).
    8. Flash root (optional).
    9. Reboot and profit.

    A note about Open GApps:

    If you want to flash Open GApps, you MUST omit the Google Package Installer; otherwise, your permissions requests will be elongated and unpressable. To do this, follow the below process before step 3 above:
    1. Download the appropriate Open GApps zip and place it in the location of your choice.
    2. In the same location as the GApps zip, make a file named ".gapps-config".
    3. In that file, simply type "PackageInstallerGoogle".
    4. Save the file and continue on in your process.
    To read more on this, visit Open GApps' wiki. This process is NOT necessary with Banks or PN GApps.
