Thanks! Do you mean to downgrade the Google camera app?

I'm attaching screenshot of my current Google camera app info.

Yes, but you don't need to go back to 2.7, 3.2 works fine.

Great job again! Thanks
I just want to mention whats missing for me from previous perfect rom 6.0
1) back kill button
2) NavBar dimension app gives you good possibilities to customize it but where is the most important changing height of NavBar?
its so big for me and it started to be very uncomfortable after flashing from PureNexus 6.0.
Add this feature back again, please

Is the "long press back button" = "kill app" feature implemented in this rom?
I couln't find any response to this

I flashed this rom just a couple of hours ago,and it's probably the smoothest ROM out there. I've installed mini dynamic gapps. YouTube plays at 1080p without issue. Google camera app is the only culprit. HDR doesn't work (i wish it did), video shutters. Stock aosp app works fine for the videos. Pixel launcher is included in the zip. I wish Google assistant was also there ;)

As with other ROMs, the charger says "Charging Slowly", but it's just the text. It's charging fine.

Earlier I'd gone back to stock MM from Santosh's AOSP ROM as it had problems with voice streaming in Bluetooth (in my car stereo). I'm yet to test that for this ROM. But overall, it works like a charm. Thanks!

Edit: don't know if it's a bad day or there's something with the ROM, ever since I flashed, my network connection has gone for a toss. It keeps comng and going off. :(

Edit 2: YouTube stopped playing after a couple of 1080p videos. Had to do soft reboot. The network issue seems real.

same here :(

I have to go back to Marshmallow, were can i find a link to the last Marshmallow Pure Nexus rom?

Thank you for the continued love for the Nexus 5!
I had an issue earlier with the latest update (12/16/2016) where I wasn't able to get my portable Wi-Fi hotspot to turn on, and all I got was "error". I wiped and did a fresh install and still had the problem. Searching through the forums I wasn't able to find any recent posts or fixes for this, but through some experimenting I was able to get it to work. I was running the Franco Kernel, and switched back to ElementalX Kernel, and this fixed my issue

    Version Information
    Status: Stable

    Created 2016-10-10
    Last Updated 2017-08-01

    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.

    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.
    Root links:
    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.
