So far everything is working great.
I do have some problem with "Google now" not showing anything, not a big deal.
Did anyone notice that when the battery is at 100% the percentage is not shown inside the circle (when going down to 99% it is shown)?

It has the charging icon because the phone died on me. [emoji14] I then plugged the USB and immediately took a picture of SoT. Pretty great imho and I haven't replaced the battery yet.

Hello everyone, I consider myself a fairly experienced user but a bit 'I do not follow much the development of the rom because for months now I feel very comfortable with Pure Nexus (marshmallow) + blue spark.

But it's time to give a complete clean and let me know if I should reinstall the same version of the Pure nexus or evaluate switching to Nougat.

So here are my questions:

1) Nougat is not officially arrived on the Nexus 5. The Pure nexus Nougat works 100% or has had to surrender to compromise (not completely functioning or implemented functions, missing drivers, etc.) ??
2) The last Pure Nexus Nougat how it goes? everything works? stable? It is recommended for a daily long-term use?
3) It is always advised the blue kernel spark?

Thanks a lot to everyone! ;)

Hello.
I just read your post. I can't give you as technical info as some maybe able to do but I can give you my experience of using this Pure nexus as an experienced Android user.
I have only had my Nexus 5 for a few months and got it because of the amount of ROMs that are available.
In the last couple of months I think I must have used ever ROM available on here as well as some that ain't on XDA (DU)
I have found that this Pure nexus on android 7.1.1 is definitely one of the most stable that I had used.
It looks good, feels good and as far as I have used it, it has no bugs.
I was having alot of battery troubles with 7.1.1 and probably need a new battery.
I was having issues with random reboots and false battery readings but I have had no of that with this ROM.
So to answer your question is this good to use as a daily driver ??
Yes it is !

Yes, Pure Nexus ROM is undoubtedly one of the best, in every category :) I use it with ElementalX kernel and it works very fast and smooth. My daily driver since around a month now and I'm still truly satisfied with it. No bugs and no issues at all

No problem here on my work phone. No sudden shut down or reboot. I was on PN6 too for a long time, and just flashed PN7 around a month now. Works great. The camera is somewhat better in quality, but slower to launch and take pic. Running apps is the same with PN6

mtp or ptp, same result.
With rom stock all ok!
Mmmmm, that's weird, the most common issue is that the computer doesn't detect the phone, but if it does.....make sure that the usb is set to transfer files instead of charging(this is the default option) or go to Device Manager on your PC, and while your phone is connected unnistall "Android Device" and then re-connect the phone and it should reinstall the drivers

The nexus is viewed from the PC, I can see the files, but only partially. In the gallery I have over 1000 photos and they see only 60. For other apk file, there are some others do not.

It's a bit strange .. can you see your stuff with a file manager (e.g. Solid Explorer or Amaze) ?
Maybe your internal memory got corrupted ..

I can see my file with Quickpic (gallery app) and rootExplorer (file browser app).
I can see all 32gb with all app on the phone without error

Oh yes I do. And I did everything like instruction says. Still Open Gapps dosn't work.

Anyway, I've done factory reset via TWRP after installing Dynamic Gapps and for now everything works just fine.

But I still have info saying "charging slowly" when I'm charging (not via usb, normal charger). On stock 6.0.1 it always says only "charging" and I think it was a little bit faster than now.
IME it's a bug in the text; the phone still charges at roughly the same speed as before (I timed it). It just says "Charging slowly".

If it were *actually* charging slowly, it would take roughly an hour to go up 10%...

    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.
    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.
