unfortunately all my efforts in tryin to flash latest crDroid release end up in my phone being stuck at colour-changing crDroid boot logo...
Heres my setup and how I tried flashing:
1.) Already had an unlocked bootloader and TWRP on my phone
2.) Upgraded TWRP to twrp-3.4.0-10-cepheus-mauronofrio
3.) Came from unofficial lineage-16.0-cepheus
4.) Cleanly flashed latest xiaomi.eu_multi_MI9_V188.8.131.52.RFACNXM_v12-11
...until this step everything worked fine...went through setup wizzard and all is good...but I wanted to have crDroid...so I went on...
5.) Rebooted into recovery:
wiped system, vendor, data, dalvik/chache
6.) Again rebooted into recovery (not having booted the os in between)
7.) flashed crDroidAndroid-11.0-20210808-cepheus-v7.9 (tried either by sideloading or 'adb push'-ing to device and installing zip from twrp...makes no difference)
8.) staying in TWRP I directly flashed open_gapps-arm64-11.0-pico-20210825.zip
9.) again staying in TWRP I directly flashed Magisk-v23.0.zip
10.) thats the major steps that I performed more than a dozen times now
11.) due to possible problems with encryption...I also tried flashing Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_11.02.2020.zip in all permutations of switches herafter
So can anybody please point me in the right direction or give a hint about what's going wrong here.
PS: Probably anybody can also clarify when or if at all switching off dm-verity and turning off encryption has to be done - as from a security perspective I would like to keep both, if possible.
