You have been warned

<<< WARNING >>> <<< WARNING >>> <<< WARNING >>>
Please note that this is still under development, so don't install unless you want to live with some bugs
crDroid is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device also attempting to bringing many of the best features existent today. We're mainly based on LineageOS so use custom kernels compatible with them!
Features
To be defined

Always Have a full functional Backup. Just in case!


DOWNLOAD ROM

GAPPS: DOWNLOAD GAPPS

Recovery: OrangeFox
Note : Decryption works fine with linked Orange fox recovery.

First time installing crDroid to your ENTER-PHONE-NAME, or coming from another ROM: <--THESE MAY NEED UPDATING FOR YOUR PARTICULAR DEVICE; BE THOROUGH IN INSTRUCTIONS-->

** Make sure you're running a proper working Recovery (CWM or TWRP)
1) Copy crDroid zip, gapps zip <--& vendor img, if applicable--> to your device
2) Boot into Recovery
3) Format data if you want to be encrypted
Otherwise
3) Wipe cache, system, data & vendor (or just cache & system for a dirty flash).
4) Flash ROM
8) Flash gapps
9) Boot up

Upgrading from earlier version of crDroid:
The only difference between clean flash as above and upgrading is you just wipe system & cache, leaving data. Everything else is the same. ***Remember to always clean flash before reporting problems. Clean flashing is always the best method of ROM install.

KNOWN ISSUES

Don't expect any support if you:
- are not running the included kernel
- have installed any mods such as Xposed!
- have modified system files

Thanks and keep up the good work.

I'll test this out over the weekend.

A quick question, what makes this "unofficial?"

Also do you have gesture typing working? I tried out a few 10.0 roms and none of them had gesture typing working which was quite unfortunate.

Unofficial means no OTA
but now i got official also means OTA support will be there from next build.

And yes gesture typing working fine here.

I'm working off TWRP 3.3.1.0

Ahh..I didn't install the weekly firmware, I have the latest stable firmware 11.05

In the firmware download the recent firmware 9.12.12 is only for the Chinese version (I think I have the Global/Indian version of the phone). Will it cause problems for me to download the Chinese firmware?

By the way, in that sense the error message makes sense, its asking for firmware later than 9.11.28; and I thought 11.05 was more recent and thus I was fine. If we're going by 9.12.12 numbering scheme, I truoly don't have the latest firmware.

So just to ask, will it break my phone if I download the Chinese firmware?

First update your recovery to orange fox
Link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ora...t.zip/download

And no probs will be there if you flash Chinese firmware on Indian variant

Second flash latest weekly fw first
Link: https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/violet/#

Then flash ROM
And gapps
And reboot
Done
Cheers

Sigh, I'm so sorry for being a hassle; I'm clearly doing something wrong

1.) Successfully installed Orange Fox

2.) Flashed firmware 9.12.12

3.) Installed crDroid

4.) Installed Gaapps (beta for 10.0)

However the phone would not boot; it gets stuck at the "Redmi by Xiaomi" splash screen.

I tried it again without installing Gapps (incase the beta version was faulty or something), but no go. Its still stuck at the Splash Screen

Once format your data via orange fox
Then goto wipe
Swipe to wipe
Then in adv wipe select all except microsd
Then flash fw
Flash ROM
And flash gapps which were mentioned in the thread
Then reboot

Success!!

the problem after a lot of tinkering was the version of Orange Fox linked to in an earlier post.

With a different version of recovery, it installed fine.

Thanks for your help and patience.

A minor complaint, I can't seem to get gesture typing working here. I checked under virtual keyboards and the option does not exist. Is there another way to get gesture typing working?
