I dirty flashed the latest build, Google Play Services was crashing, also the apps that rely on it.
So i clean flashed, now i have no Setup Wizard, Google Play Store and Google Play services.
In the latest installation steps, it is mentioned that no Gapps are needed.
Any help?

Did you manage to get it done successfully? I was planning to flash today but have limited time today to work on it if it fails so I'm wondering if flashing gapps on top of this will help.

Are you & @Scrapyard Loot serious? A talented dev gives up his spare time and voluntarily undertakes stressful work which could bring the forum down on his head if he gets it wrong, and you two comedians complain...?
Your two cents aren't worth two cents. People like you make me angry, as perhaps you can tell. If you're trying to be funny, try harder.
I humbly apologize for the inconvenience that I have caused.
I bid you all good night.

This build was supposed to have prebuilt Gapps like Google Calculator, Google Contacts, Google Phone, Google Keyboard, Play Store and Play Services.
But none of it is present. So this Gapps related issue is causing the crash when you dirty flash.

OK, flashed clean (ROM + Dynamic Mini GAPPs) , now its fine, no issue at all.

It's probably personal preference, but I'll give you my opinion.
I'm a big fan of Chainfire, and I've bought most of his apps, including SuperSU Pro. However, I became a bit concerned when ownership transferred to a company rather than an individual - and I'm naturally suspicious of companies in general, since they tend to have financial motives for their actions.
So yesterday I decided for the first time in years to jump ship and try Magisk. I wasn't clear on the instructions (I'm not very bright), but with a bit of advice I found that it was actually very simple - a straight flash of the Magisk module and installation of the Magisk Manager. Root works fine, but Magisk Manager reports that "Safetynet failed. CTS profile mismatch". This makes no difference to me, as I don't use Android Pay.
So both are reliable and easy to install.

    Yes they are needed, but backuptool is gone so you have to flash gapps with every dirty flash
    Thanks for the info. So the included calculator, phone and contact are of Google or AOSP? Also when i flash gapps for dirty flash, will it reset any settings for the included apps in the Gapps like Google Search?

    Hello everyone! First of all thank you for this fantastic rom.
    Unfortunately I tried the new build with dirtyflash and I had big problems, so I had to go back.

    I tried two ways to install the new build:
    1) Wipe cache +Dalvik Cache ->flash new build -> Flash kernel -> flash supersu
    2) Wipe cache +Dalvik cache + system -> flash new build -> Flash gapps -> flash kernel -> flash supersu

    In both cases I had continuous blocks of applications problems.
    what is the correct procedure for dirty flash? or a clean flash is required (it takes me two days to reset everything: '( )?
    thanks a lot to everyone!

    ps: I used Mini_Dynamic_Gapps

    Procedures for clean flash:

    1. Wipe system, data, cache, and dalvik cache in Wipe > Advanced Wipe in TWRP.
    2. Flash Pure Nexus zip.
    3. Flash Open Gapps Nano. (ARM 7.1)
    4. Flash your custom kernel if needed.
    5. Flash SuperSU if you need root.
    6. Reboot.
    7. Install other Google apps from Play Store.

    Good question.
    I don't like to clean flash if not absolutely necessary, but now with backuptool removed things are getting a bit trickier.

      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.
