Gmail requests permission to contacts and would not let me press allow, only back and forced the deny. Found out contacts was not installed, installed it then contact requests permission to contacts and will not allow me except for pressing back and it denies it.

Anyone seen this?

Phone and messages have access to contacts fine.

U can manually modify permissions after in the Gmail -- App info -- Storage and cache -- Clear storage and Clear cache.

Hi, hhrokarvi. Great job, as usual - thank you.
Just out of curiosity, why the change to swipe up to activate face unlock? It works perfectly - just asking.

I think it works better this way. Sometimes you just want to see new notifications or just glance at it but not unlock the phone itself, but it ends up unlocking the phone and goes to your home screen.

I think this way is better, but if it's not a popular change I'll revert it.

That makes sense. Thank you. There have been a few times when I've picked the phone up and it has immediately unlocked, which was a surprise - your way does give better control.

And I might have fixed the Bitwarden issue you were having and some more QOL improvements to the face unlock feature. Testing it, will release it in the next update. :)

I never tried that viper I always use 2.3.4 off magisk 4.4 zip. With a permissive kernel it's never an issue as a user app. Matter of fact I like using lock effect so I can use the bluetooth options on my speakers I can increase the gain and use clarity option to sound cleaner. On nexus 6 though it makes a hiss but I don't mind.

PSA
Due to some issues with DMCA takedowns, the future builds of shamu and hammerhead will not contain face unlock functionality due to core of that function was ported from Motorola sources.
On a better note, we've already worked up a decent replacement for it. It also works as a biometric replacement for apps such as password managers etc.

It's working fine on my OnePlus 3T and Poco X3 but it's not supported yet for arm32 devices.

If it's fixed before next update, well and good. If it's not, the next update for shamu and hammerhead will not have face unlock functionality.

I've also readded built in App Locker, and it works with face unlock.

Apologies for this minor setback.

    I'm afraid I'm having problems with both my N5 & N6. I'll post separately in the N5 thread.
    The installation looked good, though I had to redo the Face Unlock setup. (In fact having used Face Unlock after the swipe up, I realise that I prefer the immediate pre-swipe version; double tap with the phone facing me is enough to unlock, which is easier. But I'm easy on this point; if you prefer the after-swipe, that's fine.)
    Unfortunately my N6 mobile refused to stabilise. Looking at the quick pulldown icons, the scrolling text on the mobile data kept flickering "data on/connecting/data on/connecting..."; there was also a "No SIM card" message. I've restored to the backup I took immediately before the flash, and everything including mobile is back to normal.
    Anyone else seeing this? If others can please report that their device is fine on the new 7.5, I'll try again.
    I'd like to ask you if did a clean flash? as some things were changed kernel wise etc and with the new face unlock app etc, you can't do dirty flash. As you can see, the build is a day old, so I've been testing these updates for a while, I didn't notice these issues. I would've seen these otherwise.

    Ha... No, I'm certainly not implying that you didn't test; knowing your work for a while now I know better than that... :)
    I've just noticed the big red letters "Clean flash required". If that message was there before, I apologise, I didn't see it. No, I regret to say that it was a dirty filthy flash - entirely my fault. In a way that's good news, since I quite like tinkering with my Nexuses, but it does take a while and I'll have to psych myself up for it... :)
    I'm glad it's my stupidity and not a problem with the ROM.
    As always, thank you for your work. Always appreciated.
    I added Clean Flash afterwards.... Sorry, for not mentioning it before. I didn't realize to mention that as I knew it would be necessary.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Great work, really enjoying this ROM!

    I have one question / bug report: If I switch off the phone and put it away with a fully charged battery, a couple of days later it's fully depleted with this ROM. Could there be something happening in the background? I've re-installed the original Android 7 for Nexus 6 and then the battery stays charged if switched off for days....

    Tried the 'switch off and put away' scenario a couple of times and in all cases the phone wouldn't start up without first charging for quite a while.
    No one having similar issues with Battery life?

    I switched back to Android 7 (the last version for Shamu) and battery life is now great again. I can switch off the device and put it away for a week; and comes on almost fully charged. With crDroid, it's completely empty after only a few days :-(

    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!

    Features
    Click for feature list


    Always Have a full functional Backup. Just in case!


    TWRP Recovery:

    TWRP

    ROM DOWNLOAD:
    crDroid Site
    DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD (Android 11)
    DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD (Android 10)
    DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD (Pie)

    DOWNLOAD GAPPS


    First time installing crDroid to your Nexus 6, or coming from another ROM:

    ** Make sure you're running the latest TWRP Recovery
    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 21.4 or later. (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).

    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
    -_-

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

    - About GApps, flash nano or below variant, as Pixel Launcher in the micro variant causes some issues with default launcher. This is a GApps issue.
    - Magisk 20.4 solves the issues we've been having with it since some time. Flash 20.4 version and above only.
    - Huge thanks and props to @Elektroschmock and @npjohnson and all other contributors who have helped the Orca in any way, and for LineageOS 17.1!! :laugh:
