I flashed crdroid 7.5 (Apr-19 build) manually and wiped only dalvik and data, without wiping "/data/media". It doesn't boot into android, instead, it just boots back into twrp. Do I need to completely wipe the data partition (including internal storage)? Or do I need to take additional steps? Thanks in advance.Hello guys,
I am sorry for my absence this last weeks here on the forum but it was quite a stressful time in my life. Anyway, I am happy to be able to announce that crDroid 7 based on Android 11 is finally ready and will be officially released soon. Check the new thread out here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/android11-microg-crdroid-7.4239379/
However, manual install is necessary and wiping data is mandatory as together with crdroid 7 I wanted to introduce file based encryption, which requires a clean data partition. So for those who can't or simply don't want to wipe data (or simply love Android 10), I will continue building crdroid 6 following a monthly release cicle. The main focus will be security patches and kernel updates.
You need to perform a factory reset as crdroid 7 on daisy uses file based encryption as default. To apply it, it needs an empty data partition. Please also use Linkboi's twrp with crdroid 7, as it is able to decrypt encrypted data partitions.I flashed crdroid 7.5 (Apr-19 build) manually and wiped only dalvik and data, without wiping "/data/media".

Well actually I'm still on 6.18 May 23rd and didn't have video issues. Tested with vlc (which brings own codecs), but also mx player, telegram and youtube from a browser (I don't have youtube app or vanced).
Well since you didn't give us much information I guess you are at the beginning of the ROM flashing trip, and that is ok since we all started that way, I will only give a good link to start

So, as far as stability goes, we are at a good point rn. I am using the ROM myslef with MicroG as a daily driver and I am not facing any major issues. FM radio is buggy though, os if you need that, you might want to wait. As for the installation guide, you are right. I was in a hurry and it seemed correct as far as installation goes, but I will definetly link some other side asap.Ooh, a rom with confirmed microG support! I'm hesitant to switch right now because this phone is my daily driver (and the rom im using is super stable) but I'm very much interested in hearing how well it works for folks.
Err, also a bonus heads up, the installation guide you linked for microG is not official and looks suspicious as hell. Might be an idea to copy its instructions and put them somewhere else and link to the official NanoDroid site/forum post rather than that potential malware place.
Thanks! FM is buggy and there are two apps at the moment: FM-Radio and UKW-Radio. FM-Radio will fc, but UKW-Radio works (at least it can recieve radio streams and play them). But this might depend from the region you are in and the name of the second app might be different in other languages (I have my phone set to german).I installed this rom (2020-08-21) yesterday. Seems very good so far. Thank you very much!
FM force closes every time but that is no problem for me at all. Also I couldn't wake up the phone once, the display stayed black and it didn't react at all but that hasn't happened again.
I'll see what the next few days bring.
But one question left. Can the device be encrypted? Or isn't it possible due to the A/B thing? I'm not quite sure if I tried it with another rom and it didn't work at all or if I just made this up.
