G'day guys and girls :D

I haven't seen PN source code updated for a while on the r33 side, seems they are focusing on the kernel a little bit
So I merged the tags myself and add some features to the ROM
I'LL TRY TO KEEP THE THREAD UPDATED, BUT THERES NO GUARANTEE ON THAT, THE REPO WILL PROBABLY BE UPDATED, IF YOU WANT TO BUILD YOURSELF, GO TO THE REPOSITORY DOWN BELOW
PLEASE NOTICE
This version was NOT signed by the PureNexus's certificates, please do a FULL FACTORY RESET if you are from the offical build.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but this is compulsory
Features
Built in GAPPS (no gmail, Google News and weather and play magazines, don't find them useful since I've got outlook and other replacement)
Built in Greenify
Android 7.1.2_r33 August security level
VoLTE tested
Lineage Terminal
ElementalX 1.15 Kernel (NTFS rw, exFAT, High Brightness Mode, Digital Gain control)
USB Patch for using the phone as a USB HID keyboard/mouse see here
All PureNexus Features

Untested
Since I am in Australia, there's no actual way to test whether Wi-Fi calling works, but it should work considering Project Fi was prebuilted. Please tell me if I need to add anything.

why is this being made ? is PN dead ? curious since i've been using my pixel less since i got the s8+
If the official PN doesn't have a feature that a user wants, they are within their rights to build a version that incorporates that feature.
And in most cases, if the builder marks it as Unofficial (as is the case here), they are welcome to share it others, on the understanding that no support will likely be given from the official builder.

    One thing I noticed is, I couldn't get Ok Google to work. Would say this language isn't supported

    Question... Is there a way to remove system apps on this rom? I've tried to remove the YouTube app even with magisk installed it gives apps that are able to remove system apps root permission but in the app remover app itself it says that I'm not rooted
    Use TWRP file manager would be the best way to do it I reckon
