do you have any issues with crDroid 8.x ? and what is your favorite feature of android 12 compare to previous rom you used? thx
I have no problem with crDroid 8.4. It is now smoother than 8.2.
I was using HavocOS [A11] for a long time but after the January update, the Instagram reels stopped working, and scrolling through them made Instagram close.
I tested all other A11 Roms and they have this problem, and if I'm not mistaken it should be from how the Rom handles cache but I don't know the real reason behind this problem.
So I moved on to A12, and the only custom Roms that can handle this problem are DerpFest, crDroid, and OctaviOs.
But I couldn't use browsers like chrome and edge in OctaviOs.

I installed MindTheGapps 12.1.0 0220416 on crDroid 8.4 (dirty update from FlameGApps, only system wiped).
It looks OK, Android Auto works and performances are good (it looks a bit better, no random idles).

Hi to everyone, thanks for this rom and your efforts @LinkBoi .
I'm sorry to say that I have some issue:
- I can't change ringtones, sounds etc. settings app crashes or "goes black" and back a page if I try to do so.
- Instagram's reels are really choppy.
I attach a log file that should help with the ringtone problem.
Thank you again for all your work!

PS: Solved the ringtones issue installing Google's sound picker, I don't know how it got uninstalled on his own.
I remove the log file, if you still need it I will re-upload it.

according to flashing-instructions it is required to install the older stock firmware V11.0.4.0.
Is this mandatory or does the installation of crDroid also work with the latest stock firmware V11.0.21.0?

On a different custom ROM (DerpFest), I used the latest firmware and it worked. Another gentleman in this thred (daisy) reported the same. It would appear that all advise to use an older FW is unfounded unless specifically explaining what exactly makes the latest, stable and bug-fixed FW not work on this specific ROM.

Gapps issue!
Hi guys, I have installed last version , clean install from stock 11.0.4. and I have an issue with gapps. I'm installing for Android 12.1.
- installing flame gapps goes to bootloop
- installing mind the gapps or nikgapps goes Ok BUT I cannot connect to internet with any google app.
I can setup the google account on the phone but after that , no internet access trough google apps.
I need to specify that I can connect to internet from the stock browser with no problems (wifi or gsm data)

Any sugestion on how to fix this?
Tks.

Hello,
thank you for the ROM, so far I have found only one minor issue (apart from missing sound picker like Cippo95 but I solved that by reflashing flame gapps).
I'm using both SIMs and after clean flash they get assigned blue and green color. If I attempt to rename the SIMs or pick any different color, I always get only black color for both SIMs and can't even go back to default colors without reflashing the rom. If I'm doing something wrong or I can diagnose this further, let me know.

Thanks!

Is there a call recorder integrated in the dialer app?

Does the FM radio have a good and stable receiver?

OK, I reflashed TWRP with the unofficial 3.5.2_9-2, and it seems that's all right!

    Great work @LinkBoi your rom is good for daily use it has some bugs I'm sure it'll be fixed in the next updates. Suggestions if you can add radio FM app.
    Already implemented for the next build. Slight issue is that I have to pick in-between allowing FM to output sound over the speaker as well, with the volume stuck at one level, or speaker audio not working at all from the FM app. Any input would be appreciated.
