    Any compelling reason to use Magisk? I don't (so far!) use Android Pay or anything. Better performance??
    I dirty flashed too, reflashed the rom, gapps and su. I also have a rooted version of the old Motorola clock i use.

    Should I have reflashed the GApps? I saw he (Nate) had a version of both full and mini with May date, but the consensus I got from XDA was that a GApps flash was not needed. I could see not going from full to mini - I had full already from last month.

    I didn't reflash GApps either because that seemed like the way to go based off what I read. I was a long time SuperSU user but switched to Magisk when Pokemon Go blocked rooted devices. Magisk was the easiest way to have root and still play. I like how you can hide root from specific apps. So far I've just hid from Pokemon Go and Amazon Prime Photos (because it kept warning me about being rooted). Based on the latest news I've hid Netflix too. My bank isn't with Android Pay so that isn't an issue for me. Long story short... I use Magisk because I play a silly game. 😀

    Thanks VG! I'll stick w/ SuperSU for now, but will be reading more. I'm somewhat relieved that you didn't flash GApps either, I was just sitting here pondering if I should re-flash or not. Either way, sure am glad I put Pure Nexus on my Nexus 6. I've learned a lot, and it runs really well!

    If you clean flash in the future, and have an Android Wear connected watch - this tip will save you tons of swiping/aggravation.

    Hey GG! - did you flash GApps too? If so, full or mini?? Or just the ROM/root?

    After reading a bit more, just flashed the ROM and root... apparently Beans says there is a problem with the GApps on the Nexus 6 and he's looking into it, and to use the May GApps instead.

    I used the ones on my sdcard from the last flash. I don't usually change packages when he does as I use very few of them.
