Hello everybody,

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_V12.5.4.0.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
formatted data
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.

Kind regards,

supergonzo74

It does not record calls because the audio format is not supported, can someone help me? I am in the penultimate version. Greetings

I don't get the problem. Just flash NikGapps SetupWizard before booting into ROM.

Cheers
Toscha
And how are we supposed to know it's an option and where do we get it from?

Instructions for setting things up from scratch are not great in this thread - I get it, most people don't care as they are on crdroid already... And then poor folks like us spend hours trying to flash the rom using wrong version of TWRP that is linked from the first post.

In the first post there's a link to XDA thread for TWRP. And there the official version is linked. If yo go for any other version don't blame crDoid maintainer for it.

Further more the maintainer is not responsible for which Gapps you choose. You can basically take the Gapps you like; in my case e. g. it's OpenGapps. Once you decide for Gapps read the respective thread to learn more about it. Again, that's not the business of crDroid maintainer.

That thread (also very poor to be fair) has only version 3.4.0-10 as the latest which doesn't work with current build of crdroid. I was not going to rant about this myself - I wasted a couple of hours on this and then went on official site, got the latest version and problems gone. Instructions should have link to official site rather than a thread which might or might not be updated...

I'm only bringing this up as someone else had exact the same issue above...

Tried opengapps (beta) a longer time ago and it didnt work too. I think only Nikgapps are working proper with this rom

I was able to get opengapps (nano) to work after I booted with Niks (core) once and then installing on top of that.

Obviously the same versions. Weird ...
You can try to delete all data from Play Store and GPay. Which means you'll lose your payment history. And there's no certainty that it'll work then.

Have you tried to uninstall the update just using the original version? Might be risky in terms of security but worth a try.

Cheers
Toscha
I tried this:
uninstall magisk,
uninstall google pay
reboot to recovery
advanced wipe:- Dalvik Cache / ART - Cache - System- Vendor
flash Your ROM
wipe:- Dalvik Cache / ART - Cache
flash NikGapps full 2021.07.19
wipe:- Dalvik Cache / ART - Cache
reboot
install "old" google pay 2.129 from apkmirror
and GPay says all time "This phone cant't be used to pay in shops. This may be because it is rooted or altered in some other way."

SafetyNet Test says fail in CTS profile match

:/

The same to me. In morning payments were working. In the afternoon it stopped working. Google pay notification "your device is rooted".

I deleted all data Play Store and GPay but its still problem. In https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/magisk-general-support-discussion.3432382/ there are reports from many people. Any solution for our phone?

I tried this:
uninstall magisk,
uninstall google pay
reboot to recovery
advanced wipe:- Dalvik Cache / ART - Cache - System- Vendor
flash Your ROM
wipe:- Dalvik Cache / ART - Cache
flash NikGapps full 2021.07.19
wipe:- Dalvik Cache / ART - Cache
reboot
install "old" google pay 2.129 from apkmirror
and GPay says all time "This phone cant't be used to pay in shops. This may be because it is rooted or altered in some other way."

:/

Hi! Same for me since latest Google update.. Safetynet failed.
For those who are unaware, the cts mismatch/safetynet fail is a general problem now on most phones/roms. No need to try to pass with "regular hide", it won't work.
Just try this for now, as it should pass well : SafetyNet fix

Tbh, I never heard anyone complaining about the OP being "very poor". Some do their own research you know instead of us spoonfeeding.
Anyway, the twrp mentioned in OP is indeed working, I'm even on an older version like 3.3.1-62...just saying.
Well I added the official one so newcomers can go all the way ;)
And about the Gapps thing..that's all up to users themselves. And if something's not working, well do try again...I've done this a zillion times on this phone and currently on three and even then I'm still not complaining about something (not being updated or being "very poor")
