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

-Unlock the phone
-Remove any fingerprint and codes!!
-nebrassy twrp install, need an otg or sdcard with files! (mtp not working)
-boot to twrp, wipe menu->format
-without restart flash 12.0.6 firmware from sd or otg (
-flash the rom, mindgapps, magisk, dfe patch (

So far I went with unrooted ungoogled Installation without Magisk on my phones and just did use microG and signature spoofing to make most Apps I need to work (better):
- WhatsApp, Signal (Cloud messaging on helps at least in Signal)
- GCam (microG needed, for Portrait mode full features Google Photos needed?)
- Snapseed: QR-Look Style Import/Export (needs Google Play Services - was not able to activate this on my systems)
- Google Photos rather instable: Features Selfie/Portrait, Videostabilisation often crash
- Banking Apps: most do not work (fully) and every update can change the situation, had to leave N26 because of this

If anyone has a similar crDroid unrooted ungoogled on Poco X3 Pro or other devices setup and can share changes of optimizing tweaks I appreciate.
