Just installed crDroid 6.8 - enjoying it so far!

edit:
One small issue with the "always active" lock screen. When locking the device via the power button, from active but unlocked state (from the screen asking code/thumb print), the back and menu buttons stay lit.

Cheers!
Søren

I updated from version 6.6 via OTA update. Download okay, but the update to version 6.8 wasn't done automatically with TWRP 3.4.0-0. It had to be started manually in TWRP. Is that supposed to be the case?

By the way: Exactly the same OTA update behavior with Galaxy S6 Edge (hero2lte)


Nonetheless @turbolukex5, thank you for new update crDroid v6.8.
Did mess up the ota thing, will be resolved in next build crDroid 6.9

turbolukex5,

Thank you for creating and updating the first officially supported Android 10 ROM for Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge herolte exynos! I have read through the thread and reviewed the official release page on crDroid. There aren't many stable / up to date complete ROMs for my phone 930W8.

I am eagerly watching the release notes for bug fixes and I noticed that the official crDroid ROM page is missing release notes from a couple recent releases. I also noticed that this change log thread post was hard to find in the thread search because it doesn't have the words "change log" in it, like the other change log posts. I read the whole thread, but some people might miss this change log post.

After reading all the change logs and all forum thread posts, it is still not clear what the current, complete list of outstanding / fixed issues and workarounds are for this ROM. Here is what I gathered from posts in this thread, and the posted change logs. Not sure which issues have already been fixed in previous releases.

Outstanding Issues

  • Low sound on telephone calls
    -> A posted workaround is to change a configuration file volume settings
    -> workaround: upgrade kernel to MoRoKernel - possibly fixes sound setting/crashes (which phones does this work on?)
  • Random crashes / reboots on 930W8 (canadian/UAE) phones
  • Wifi disconnects randomly while using
  • Loudspeaker sometimes switches to stereo with earpiece
  • Sometimes problems with Bluetooth Headsets when trying to call someone
  • Media sound sometimes go through phone ear speaker
  • microphone sometimes doesn't work during calls.
  • Microphone seems to shut off while using speakerphone during phone call.
  • Issues using headsets ( bluetooth or plugged in: headphone jack?)
  • Screen recording isn't working. At all. With any app.
  • Google camera notifications for processing hdr are stuck after capturing photo. Possible duplicate: Camera doesn't work
  • Capturing photosphere application hangs during processing.
  • OTA update fails to automatically install
    -> will be fixed in next release.
  • crDroid configuration : when i try to change the Hardware button effect (like "i want to take a Screenshot by double tapping on recent HW button.") The configuration menu crash every time.
  • after phone calls: when headphones are connected, music plays from all speakers
  • App drawer cannot be customize, when I try to select it from menu nothing is in there.
  • Screenshot is not working. (Power + Home button to screenshot?)
    -> Workaround: press power+ volume - for a few seconds.
  • Bluetooth is not accepting apk files.
  • shortcut for sharing issue sometimes : when you tap "instagram" icon to share on instagram, you share on messenger instead.

I am sure you have a full time software job and you do this in your free time, so thank you for this ROM!

good ROM, but there are two jambs... very quiet sound when recording videos and the stock camera is better

The file might be corrupted. Or you may have DL the wrong ROM (flat or edge)
Try to redownload your ROM.

Another thought : is your TWRP up to date ?

It sure is. I'm currently running Android 10 Lineage and keep getting an error 7 on TWRP whenever I try to downgrade to an Android 7 ROM. Is this a common problem?

Hum... never tried to downgrade but i remember that going from 8 to 9 needed the last version of TWRP. You could try to downgrade TWRP but it's just wild guess.

Good rom, but i found some bugs....

Clean install, with Morokernel, Gapps and magisk....

Major bugs I found:
Wifi not reconnects while screen is off, if you go out of range of wifi and returns it only reconnects when you turn the screen on.
In call earpiece volume not work, min or max not make any diference.... (but call volume works on other apps ex: whatsapp)
In call speakerphone volume not works too (it activates but with very low volume)....
Signal strength icon only works on 4G network, 2G/3G it aways show empty but I can make calls normally... (tried to fix changing modem version but no luck)

Very minor bug
When you clear call log the call log kep apeearing until you close the app or try to interact with the list...

hi all, can someone tell me:
1. i have lags animation from clean install rom. I wonder if this is only on my device or globally - in this moment the device heats up.
- I tried to turn off the animation, but this is probably not an option, maybe. the phone is still heating up
2. Call recorder from stock dialer is not work - send message when press button "record": Failed to start call record

-
Is there an option to fix it?

noticed that at the moments of animation lags - the logcat gives this:
11-15 18:16:52.826 3764 3800 E BatteryExternalStatsWorker: no controller energy info supplied for bluetooth
11-15 18:17:02.919 3764 3988 E WifiNative: Could not get Iface object for interface null
11-15 18:17:23.105 4047 4047 W InstrumentedPrefFrag: Screen title missing for fragment com.crdroid.settings.fragments.Buttons
....
11-15 18:17:24.649 4047 6530 W OpenGLRenderer: Dirty 1440.00 448.00 2880.00 2560.00 doesn't intersect with 0 0 1440 2560 ?

1st IAM sorry for my bad English.
2nd Iam really appreciate turbolukex5 for his great work:cowboy: . You did a great job . You bring back life to my old Galaxy S7. I think Crdroid is the best stable rom right now. I have tried so many ROMs but none of them are bug's free.
3rd Iam facing a problem ,, it's not a bug maybe ,,,so I don't know how to generate bug report for this problem. The problem is when talking with someone in phone app ,the other person iam talking with here's his voice twice. I will be very happy if you can suggest me how to fix this problem. And the GPS isn't much accurate.( Iam currently using Crdroid 6.12)

Hello,
i wanted to update yesterday via from crDroidAndroid-10.0-20200730-herolte-v6.8.zip to crDroidAndroid-10.0-20201108-herolte-v6.12.zip.

TWRP 3.4.0.0
- Install
- select crDroidAndroid-10.0-20201108-herolte-v6.12.zip
- After a successful installation -> Wipe cache/dalvik
- Reboot System

Error message:
Decryption unsuccessful
The password you entered is correct, but unfortunately your data is corrupt.
To resume using your phone, you need to perform a factory reset. When you set up your phone after the reset, you'll have an opportunity to restore any data that was backed up to your Google Account.

Password to unlock the screen was removed before.
In the settings the phone is shown as encrypted.
I cannot change this.

Is there a way to update my phone without factory reset?

I was about to unencrypt crDroid 6.12 and then upgrade TWRP to twrp-3.5.0_9-0-herolte.img. But can not, is there a "trick"?
