I run into a strange bug in latest version (crDroid 7.14 - updated via OTA from January 2nd version
Default phone app doesn't notify missed calls: As you can surely recognize is this a very annoying bug - has anyone the same experience?
After update from 7.13 to 7.14 official I tested this and in the status bar the missed call was notified.
It's not possible if you're NOT currently encrypted (at least for me). Dirty flash ain't working for me either. Never tried OTA. But if you boot alright after this, be my guest. I could not boot without data formatting data at all. (I'm on official TWRP.) It's not really a problem if you have a data backup (on an external drive), as well as a backup of your storage folders (same drive), which you will be able to restore.
crDroid is currently encrypted, so dirty flash 7.13 to 7.14 did work (after I made Backups) in TWRP.

Wow! Way to go.
I've found out that with this new dfe patch one needn't to format data any more (after updates or new installs). Encouraged by your endearvors, I've switched to AICP ROM for a jiffy (did not like it, no Hand Wave), and returned to crDroid of 1.1.22 without doing any data formatting. Mine is decrypted, btw.

This is weird. Didn't have time to check this one. Couldn't stand removal of Hand Wave and rolled back to 1.1.22 (still supports call recording), which would be my recommendation to you.

After update from 7.13 to 7.14 official I tested this and in the status bar the missed call was notified.

Thanks, I ended up with a clean flash and now it works as excpected ;)

Anyone got the media (music) in DND mode working?

How do I set microg to have location "all the time"?
I thought one can set this in the location access settings but I do not see this option, only the others "Never" "Only once" "only when the app is in use".

Maybe found a bug????

I installed crDroid 7.14, rebooted, then installed MicroG nogoolag.
I was not able to get all green checkboxes in MicroG check, because no "all the time" location was able to be set.

I then installed crDroid 7.13, rebooted, then installed MicroG nogoolag.
I got all green checkboxes in MicroG, then installed crDroid 7.14 and still had all green checkboxes.

I do not know why 7.14 with microG (without 7.13) did not give me all checkboxes

Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro
Hello everyone, I'm using CrDroid version 7.14 A11, and after this last update I have an error when using some applications (from what I've noticed, they seem to be applications that use some Google function, but I'm not sure) flashes on the screen that the application is not responding, then this warning closes and the application works normally. The error when this occurs is highlighted in the image, and I also have a zip file of the log. I would like to know if someone could help me, despite being a layman in mobile programming. I thank you for your attention!

Hi! Great rom, I've used it on my MI A3 and now in my Poco x3 pro. I have a bit of an issue though, any chance the kernel could be compiled with CONFIG_DM_CRYPT set to Y.
I'll explain my use, I have an encrypted container on my external sdcard and without that option can't seem to be able to mount it.
Thanks again for a great rom!

Hi, do any of you have any problem with over heating of the phone?
I'm on 7.14 here and if use the phone just for browsing or YouTube, the phone gets very hot near the top part of the screen.

Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Experiencing the same issue. I've seen more users with the same problem recently. I don't know what might be causing it. I was forced to do a full wipe and format data, fixed the issue for now but it still gets really hot while using YouTube, thought not that much like it used to before wiping (Battery reached 45 degree just because of 10 minutes on YouTube) now it stays at 35 degree which I consider better.

Previously tried flashing another kernel but problem remained, seems it was a ROM issue. Hope it doesn't happen again since I like how crDroid 7.14 performs over 8.2 (Which by the way does not have that heating issue).

    just installed 7.16, quite happy with it. faster than, i was missing the miui gallery with the magic erase but found through forums a way to install it.
    i m reluctant to jump to android 12 and quite deterred by the "format data" part of every update.
    i enjoy call recording as an option.
    however, i d like to ask the more experienced users if
    a. i can launch the camera from lock screen without unlocking the phone. quite useful if you give your phone to someone to take a pic without revealing the pattern.
    b. the screen casting/mirroring is working, i havent been able to do make it work. in miui you have to grant "always use location permission" but i was not able to do that on crdroid.

    Install instructions:


    Flashing Instructions from any custom ROM (Thanks to Raf & @kamild_)
    • Backup all your data.
    • Transfer ROM and other zips (such as Gapps or Magisk) to internal storage, SD card or USB drive.
    • Boot/reboot to recovery.
    • Flash recommended MIUI firmware
    You can find them here. If you're already on it, you can skip this step. You can flash the fastboot version of the MIUI stock ROM through Mi Flash tool / Fastboot too but the procedure is slower.
    • Flash CrDroid ROM.
    • Flash GApps (Optional step) FlameGapps
    • Flash Magisk (Optional step, only if you want root)
    • Format Data > type "yes" and press enter (different from the "wipe data" option)
    • Reboot to system

    First time installation from MIUI or above:

    1. Remove any fingerprint, PIN, or password in MIUI. Backup all your data, next step will factory reset the device.
    2. Unlock the bootloader.
    3. Flash recommended custom recovery from the "Prerequisites" section with fastboot.
    4. Continue from step 2 of the "custom ROM instructions" below.


    OTA Working: Just update from OTA screen

    Manual Update installation:

    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash Rom (default path: root/data/crdroid_updates)
    • Wipe Cache/Dalvik
    • Reboot

    this is a missing feature, unlocking works, but lacks a choice of fingerprint scanner behavior
    Yes, I need to check how to implement in vayu.

    I'm happy to say we have Official Support!

    Thanks to all for your comments.

    New update avaiable ;-)
    ViPER4Android FX and James DSP Manager - Break Wi-Fi, simply won't turn on

    After installing NLSound 2.3, the sound starts to wheeze (upon notification), this is when properly configured, as it was done on other roms.

    These modifications can be installed in magisk and working properly on other roms

    However, nice rom!
    Sorry, some magisk modules are breaking device overlays so I don't support modules for now.

    and fingerprint press and touch toggle
    is dynamic refresh rate possible to add like on arrowos
    Dynamic refresh added in next version.

    fps info fixed

    CrDroid was always one of my favorite roms, the only things that are a bit annoying are:
    - press fp to unlock button that one of poco x3 nfc devs made it possible.
    - haptic feedback when you pull down status bar...
    (press fp to unlock button) I have tried it but commenting on it with more people I do not know if it is the best option.
    There is no option to select the button behavior.
    There are reboots when using trcamera and Google meet the log also has camX errors spammed
    View attachment 5328217
    Will be fixed in next versions
    New build, 23-05

    -Fixed Battery Charge Led (need to fix brightness)
    -Fixed Metadata issue with media-gallery (seems still video files preview issues in rare cases)
    -Added GoogleCamGo
    -Rom Changes

    Can be dirty flash + Wipe caches.

    Link to download from Sourceforge:
    Hi, new OSS version is ready.

    Required firmware: MIUI (Global): V12.5.2.0

    To update, format data is required. (You can try dirty flash, if bootloop, reboot to recovery and format data)
    -Download new version by OTA or from Soundforge.
    -Reboot to recovery
    -Flash new update (No Gapps reflash needed)
    -Format data (type yes)
    -Reboot to system.

    If you found problems for updating, flash MIUI Global Rom from recovery and follow above steps.

    Thanks for your support.
