INTRODUCTION
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.


Welcome to the new beginning! This topic will be dedicated to our bring up crDroid v5.0 for Mi A1. Sincere thanks to LineageOS team for the rom base sources.

These are BETA builds. They aim to serve base for feature addition. If you face any force close, you need to provide log to get it resolved. Make sure to keep eye on this post and latest discussions in this topic to help yourself.

Features : Check Features on Github

QuickNote : I thoroughly test my builds on my own device before publishing. I use this rom as my daily driver


Downloads : :


What's working :
  • Almost everything
  • VoLTE
  • 4.9.161
  • Cast Screen
  • Enforcing

Flashing Instruction

Always Have a full functional Backup. Just in case!
First time installing crDroid to your Mi A1, or coming from another ROM:

Make sure you're running a proper working Recovery ( TWRP)

1) Flash twrp available on my xda thread or from group(cosmic Dan's)
2) Reboot to twrp
3) Make a backup(just in case)
4) Go to wipe-advance wipe - chose data , system , cache and wipe.
5) Flash the ROM
6) Reboot to twrp
7) Flash Gapps
8) Flash Migrate backup (optional)
9) Flash Magisk
10) Reboot to system

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.
You need to flash GApps every-time you flash the ROM.


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 to:
- @flex1911 for initial device source

Special Thanks to :
- @abhinavagrd_1129 (without his support this build wont be possible)
