[ROM][11.0][OFFICIAL] crDroid Android v7.10 [hammerhead]

Do i need to do clean flash or dirty flash is enough?
I'm currently in 6.8
I did dirty flash some days ago, moved from 6.5 to 6.9. Without any issues, at least for now. But my system partition syze is 1.5Gb, I did it much earliy, when I was on UA. So, besides of the fact that clean flash IS without doubt the best way to move on a new rom/build, I came to conclusion that the size of system partition is the one really critical factor. Methinks, if your system partition size at least the same, you are good to go.

I have old Crdroid on my nexus 5, the Android 8.1 based version and it is stable. Is it worth the effort to upgrade to latest Crdroid (Android 10 based version) or would it be recommended to keep the Android 8.1 version?

Probably not. Unless you want Google's Security updates.
I had a stock n5 so I switched to latest, but it feels kind of lagging lately and I'm considering rolling back to Pie, or Oreo or even a maintained Lollypop.

Just out of curiosity, if I wanted to upgrade from Android 8.1 CRdroid which I currently have to the latest Android 10 CRdroid directly, how should i go about doing it without losing data?

I know a backup is recommended to be done beforehand and modified TWRP is needed to do the partition resize but I currently have the regular TWRP among anything else...

You won't lose media in \data\media folder (as wiping doesn't delete \data\media). You can use apps like Titanium Backup to backup and restore your apps. You need the modified TWRP version or you'll have to repartition manually.

Yes, but if you repartition you will lose all data in your internal storage... So, no, I am afraid there is no way to upgrade without backing up your data.

Just wanna say, the native updater does not work properly.
It downloads fine and after clicking "install", it says it's going to reboot to recovery to flash.
Then the phone boots to TWRP recovery, and an installation screen would flash for a second and abort immediately, returning to the TWRP default screen.
After reboot, I find the OS has not been updated.

edit: I was thinking to manually flash but couldn't find where the update had been downloaded.

From memory, it's your TWRP version. I had success with TWRP 3.3.1 but problems with 3.4.0.

Come on! I updated my TWRP (prlly v3.3) as soon as I read the first sentence for installation steps:

Make sure you're running the latest TWRP Recovery (UA or HH Version)

I didn't know what the heck was UA or HH, thinking it was the version name of the latest twrp.

It should have been made more clear.

    crDroid is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device also attempting to bringing many of the best features existent today. We're mainly based on LineageOS so use custom kernels compatible with them!

    BE3pE0l.png

    Features
    Click for feature list


    Always Have a full functional Backup. Just in case!


    TWRP Recovery:

    TWRP Thread

    ROM DOWNLOAD:
    crDroid Website
    DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD (Android 11)
    DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD (Android 10)
    DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD (Android 9 PIE)

    DOWNLOAD GAPPS (PICO Version)


    First time installing crDroid to your Nexus 5, or coming from another ROM:

    ** Make sure you're running the latest TWRP Recovery (UA or HH Version)
    1) Copy crDroid zip, gapps zip to your device
    2) Boot into Recovery
    3) Wipe cache, system, & data (or just cache & system for a dirty flash).
    4) Flash ROM
    5) Flash gapps
    6) Boot up

    For root, AFTER you boot into the ROM, you can go back to recovery and install Magisk 21.x (whatever is most recent).

    Upgrading from earlier version of crDroid:
    The only difference between clean flash as above and upgrading is you just wipe system & cache, leaving data. Everything else is the same. ***Remember to always clean flash before reporting problems. Clean flashing is always the best method of ROM install.

    KNOWN ISSUES (Android 11)
    Slow Boot Animation
    Screen mirroring via slimport HDMI adapter doesn't work.
    PMF aka 802.11w doesn't work.
    Wi-Fi display doesn't work
    SELinux permissive


    Don't expect any support if you:
    - are not running the included kernel
    - have installed any mods such as Xposed!
    - have modified system files

    Thanks to:

    - Google
    - LineageOS
    - SlimRoms
    - AOSPA (Paranoid Android)
    - OmniRom
    - NamelessROM
    - Many others... (if you're feeling upset being out of the thanks list just send a PM )

    For everyone concerned...

    With custom ROM's heading towards Q (Android 10) it will take time to figure out all the issues, I will be providing updates for this device until crDroid Android stops development on Pie and moves on towards Android 10.

    With news that daily LineageOS builds provided by @z3DD3r will be stopping soon, I will provide updates on the same timeline I normally do, so don't worry. Nexus 5 has 1-2 more updates on Pie at least before crDroid moves on towards Android 10.

    Thanks for using crDroid and all the well wishes I get from all of you.

    Regards,
    Frazer.

    - Some Google stuff i.e. Assistant is causing some weird issues ("internet connection issues" even when connected), which is an issue with Google as its also affecting Samsung, OnePlus phones. Nothing I can do about it.
