IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ THIS
This is a ROM built from source and not a GSI!

Fix Camera stretch & force close for some camera apps
You can do it editing /vendor/build.prop file using MiXplorer (you’ll need ROOT).
  1. Search for the line “vendor.camera.hal1.packagelist”
  2. After the = are the name of different apps. Delete one of these and put the package name of the app that you want to fix. For example, com.facebook.orca is the Facebook package name.
    • Per default, the ROM comes with Whatsapp, ZOOM, Snapchat and Instagram added. Maximum 4 Apps are allowed in this line and must be separated by comma ",".
  3. If you don’t understand, open this link to see visual steps.
Fix Camera stuck
Sometimes, the camera can get inaccessible if an app was failed. If it happen, follow this:
  • Install this app. Open it and tap "Kill camera", then give it ROOT permissions. Done! Camera is working again.
    • Take in mind that if the camera is broken and you didn't do this, the audio in calls maybe not work.
GCam
This ROM can run GCam. Download a modded version for Exynos HERE. Thanks to Leonardo Estacio for his mod.

Games: this ROM works so good for gaming and can run ARM64 apps/games. If you feel lags, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Saver and performance > Performance Profile and set it to High Performance.

For close, i want to give a huge thanks to @Astrako - Without him this ROM haven't be possible <3

Thanks for your build.
Do you use LineageOS tree for A3 2017 by Martin (@Sap1k) ? Because it doesnt have the problem with camera.
Also crDroid 6.9 by Atrasko doesnt have this problem too. But since 6.12, there is this problem with camera.

Very nice to see a new ROM for the A3.
Did anyone test if bluetooth calls are working correctly and if recorded videos with apps other than Footej, are saved correctly?

Is adoptable storage something that works on this ROM? The tiny 16GB of internal storage are crippling this otherwise still capable device...


It does say in the first page that BT calling is still broken in this ROM.

crDroid is awesome on this phone but the lack of BT calling sucks and I don't think there is developer motivation to fix.

Cheers @GonicTEAM,

Thanks for the crDroid release, hope to see more updates to this rom.

Tested the rom on a SM-A320F/DS, can confirm what other users have mentioned above, and some others:
  • SIM slots dont work, tested both slots. Ive added a logcat to the post. SDcard (SIM2 slot) works fine, no issue there.
  • Settings > Display > LiveDisplay: Cant edit the settings for bluelight filter.
  • Settings > Display > Lock screen display > Ambient display: To edit Ambient display settings this way does not work, either nothing happens or it jumps back to Display settings. To edit Ambient display settings, have to go through -> Settings > crDroid Settings > User Interface (tab) > Ambient display. Not a huge issue, just fyi.

Camera works fine with the native app, I use OpenCamera though and with the build.prop edit mentioned in 2nd post it works without issue.

Bluetooth/NFC seem to work, though I havent tested in depth due to sim issue.

Wifi works fine aswell, only annoyance is after reboot sometimes aireplane mode is activated and wifi off, even though it was on before reboot. But thats a small issue, not priority.

Phone encryption working aswell, no issue there as far as i can see.

Battery, havent tested per usual usage, though it does drain faster at first look.


Best regards and lookin forward to future releases,
yass
