Hi all ! I installed this ROM, which seems to run without issue. I have a question: is it possible that the date on the screen, when tapped, opens my calendar app ?

Thank you !

I' ve tested a little trick to bypass bootanimation bug.
Twrp is basically what we need.
Mount system.
Then go to advanced/manager.
We need to find bootanimation.zip and bootanimation file.
They are respectively stored in system/system/media and in system/system/bin
Once find them just rename both adding .bak
Unmount system.
Reboot.
Just give to device about 1 min to completely boot otherwise we will experience some lags.
That' s all.

Only 2 real issue

So I have only two issues that if fixed would make this ROM solid for me. The first is while scrolling on webpage they randomly freeze this is fixed my hitting home then going back and it's chrome, Firefox and opera on any long scrollable sites IE 9gag or Facebook. The second is talked about already that the boot animation is super slower so to workaround this I just deleted it from media and it defaults to the old Android boot animation that once boots and screen goes dark I can wake it without further issues.

The auto download link for android 10 in the main page redirects to the clover 6.7 build, please click below that on the hammerhead 6.6 zip instead.

This prevents the rom from booting up for me, just stays on the Google screen.
Only renaming bootanimation.zip gets me to boot with the generic Android animation and it's a slideshow, one hour in still no boot into the rom.

Just follow steps i provided.
You' ll have to rename the file named bootanimation.zip but also bootanimation one.
I specified both paths to easlily find them.

For goodness' sake, why are you people obsessing about the boot animation? Yes, I find it slow, but no more intrusive than other ROMS that I've tried - and I've tried a few. I have a six-year-old device running new software and I'm grateful for it. Stop corrupting the devs' work by trying to "make it better" by "improving on" the boot animation, which is of absolutely zero, zero, ZERO relevance to the functionality of the ROM.

I'll reiterate, when I rename both system/system/media/bootanimation.zip to system/system/media/bootanimation.zip.bak and system/system/bootanimation to system/system/bootanimation.bak the device won't boot the rom, it just stays on the Google logo. I can only get away with renaming the media file (system/system/media/bootanimation.zip), regardless it is pointless as the rom never loads, it just stays on the slide show animation until the fully charged battery is depleted, I will never to another alternative rom unless this issue is resolved...if it can be.

You are commenting without knowing what the situation is as the rom never loads, it just stays on the slide show animation until the fully charged battery is depleted hours later. regardless this is not be something to get passionate about so I will just switch to another rom to avoid upsetting people because a technical issue that should be understood occurred.

I decided to try CrDroid as it was recommended as stable (as LOS17 is) and with great customisation opportunities. Previously was happy with LOS 17.1, but why not to try another A10 firmware. The result was just the same as you described here. I am not sure if slow animation leads to slow boot. If this is the issue, there is probably reason to remove it to default one, if not - then the developer is expected to fix something else, and no reason to fight the animation. In my case when I renamed animation files back, the system simply failed to boot (just transformed to endless animation). In fact I am not sure if the project is still in development or it was put aside.

The older LOS 16 builds of crDroid run fine for me (other than not being able to connect to hidden SSIDs which seems common with LOS spin offs yet work perfectly with LOS builds) so you can revert to that.

- Don't flash the Official TWRP 3.4 if you're using repartitioned TWRP, it'll be a bad time.

Hi! You are definately wrong. In 6.7 slow animation IS fixed. It is slow only at 1-st boot (and booting takes some 5-7 minutes. All further reboots take aprox 3 minutes with very fast and nice animation.
Upd: the animation starts with
red circle in the middle of display then it becomes blue, splits to several circles (and this is still slow)
then the display goes off (sleeping?) and if you wake it up with power button it suddenly starts "dancing"

Not for everyone, for me on the first boot is just stays on the bootup animation from 100% charge to 0%, never passes it. crDroid 6.6 works perfectly and is what folks that can't get past the boot animation on 6.7 should stick with until it is resolved.

Yes, sure, the problem should be resolved for all cases: the ways we install and the platform have too many variations. We have a phone motherboard (820 or 821), a display (original or a compatible from aliexpress), memory amount (16\32). Besides we may have boot (locked\unlocked), partitions (original or resized(using one of the 2 resizing methods)). And of course we have different "clearnesses" (what we have wiped before installing). And finally what zips we install with the firmware (partition resizing zip, magisk zip, version of gapps) and exact versions of those. Of course the developer keeps in mind only some of them that he considers might influence upon the problem.

Thank you for updating to crDroid 6.7.
I feel this is very stable.
I'm using open_gapps stock with 3gb system partition resized by hand with parted and gdisk.

    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.
