So what. With CORE you can easily install everything else you need from PlayStore directly.

It's not in the responsibility of a ROM's maintainer to check each and every Gapps package which is available out there. TBH, there's in fact no responsibility for anything of a maintainer at all. Don't forget it's totally voluntarily work and effort, done in the peoples' spare time. They don't owe us users anything. But they deserve our appreciation for their work, not small minded complaints about a sentence not being updated.

I'm not complaining. I'm pointing out something that doesn't work. Precisely because I don't expect the developer to test every possible combination of TWRP, Gapps, etc.

With Core you can't easily uninstall AOSP apps you don't want.

Sigh...

I do not want AOSP apps. CORE installs a few of them THAT I DO NOT WANT. If you use Nikgapps FULL, for instance, it replaces every AOSP app and I won't have to deal with any of them.

EDIT: Sorry, CORE doesn't install any apps. It's the basic crDroid ROM that installs them. By using FULL, you get rid of those AOSP apps in one go (at least that's what happens in other ROMs and what I expect to happen here).

Is there a way to install Google's setup wizard. I understand it would be part of a bigger NigGapps package than can't be installed (as of now), but since only Core works, I wonder if I could install the SetupWizard independently.

NFC is not working with every "pay machine" When I want to pay in shop with "classic" terminal is it OK but when I want to pay with mobile on food machine it doesn't detect NFC on my phone and machine is still waiting for card. With official ROM is it OK.

@djzelee did you change the notch layout or are you using any different colour than green for the fingerprint? Those two where reasons why I could not set up a fingerprint a few weeks ago.

To me your problem is not totally clear. Can't you capture a fingerprint at all in settings? Or is it that a registered fingerprint is not recognised in the lock screen?

Cheers
Toscha
When I want to add fingerprint app tells me that "finger sensor is not clean" I have to put finger to sensor many times to have correct snap and after many attempts app tells me that finger is not added try again later. But when I change colour and type of icon to white one it is done after few attempts...

Well, then it's easy. Stay with white or even better as suggested before with green colour for the sensor field. Although it should work immediately not only 'after few attempts'.

I was trying to change colour and layout. So which one use for correct working? Thank you
I do not like the cutout and with that option "hide" there would be a nice black bar on top of the screen where the cutout is.

Unfortunately my fingerprint sensor is not working as expected, if I change the cutout layout from "normal" to "hide". I thought you might have altered that setting and ran into that issue, too.
settings -> crDroid Settings -> user interface -> display cutout

Hello,
I'm going to install this Rom on my father's phone, because MIUI is just confusing piece of rubbish.
I have a few questions.

1. Does Google pay work?
2. Does magisk stays installed after OTA update?
3. Is it safe overall to install on someone's phone who doesn't know about fixing custom Rom problems?

Thanks guys.

I have a few questions.

1. Does Google pay work?

Yes, without any problems. Maybe you need to install SafetyNet-Fix linked in OP. But only once it's maintained after regular updates.

2. Does magisk stays installed after OTA update?

Not in my case at least. But re-flashing Magisk is not such a big issue. And in case it is it should better not be installed at all. ;)

3. Is it safe overall to install on someone's phone who doesn't know about fixing custom Rom problems?

Yes. Simply because there're no such serious problems at all in crDroid.


Cheers
Toscha

    Will there be crDroid8 which based on Android 12 recently for xiaomi9(cepheus)?

    1) I deleted data and cache for both, Google Play Store and Google Play Services.
    2) I uninstalled 'Universal SafetyNet Fix' in Magisk.
    3) Rebooted.
    Done.

    Cheers
    Toscha

    Well, don't know about 'newest' Magisk 23. I've installed official Magisk 23.0 at least.

    What needs to be mentioned is that all modules related to SafetyNet need to be uninstalled. Apart from Universal SafetyNet Fix these might be e. g. Riru, LSPosed or even others. I never installed them that's why I didn't mention them.

    Cheers
