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!

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

Thanks to:

- SlimRoms
- AOSPA (Paranoid Android)

- NamelessROM
- Many others... (if you're feeling upset being out of the thanks list just send a PM )

Thank you soo very much! You guys are awesome! Still on Crdroid 4.7.2 and have been looking at other roms for the last few days, I thought for sure Crdroid was dead for the N6 and it was time to move on lol. Got work in a few hours but with the next 2 days off I cannot wait to do a fresh install of this baby! Thanks again for such amazing, and long time support for the old whale!

I don't have have any complaint. Notification in the status bar works perfectly. I always do a clean flash with every update just to be on the safe side.

So far, everything I've tried works. 1st time, camera force closed, but was fine after reboot. Netflix working without any Magisk modules.

No problem here with notification in status bar. Many thanks and great work Dev !! :good:

Install BetterBatteryStats and send me a screenshot after running it for atleast 12 hours.

I'm getting just over 5 hrs of sot so battery is good for me. I just switched over from the amazing CrDroid Pie Unofficial by @transi1 . I was using his/her build for months to much satisfaction. I assume this is going to replace the unofficials. Been running your build for 3 days and like the unofficials, its perfect for me.

I dont usually dirty flash and when I do I mess it up. I see that you wipe everything but data but do you flash gapps with update as well or do you just flash the update without gapps?

Without GApps. For dirty flash wipe the system and cache partition, then flash the update zip and magisk if you need root, that's it.

Is there a way to hide the battery percentage on the status bar but show the percentage in the QS menu? I've seen some other pie ROMs do it and was wondering if I've missed something here. So far this is a pretty fluid ROM.

[Edit]: also issue with smart lock on body detection. When you tap on the lock icon it doesn't lock the phone. Using mindthegapps.

    The GCamGo_GreatnessNS2 works very well. Takes a lot better photos.
    I found it here :https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/changelog1447/[/URL]
    thank you pinakini, there's one thing I don't get of Gcam Go: they say it has HDR but by comparing pictures I can tell 100% it does not work like in standard Gcam.
    I installed Gcam 3.2 with max permissions and no battery optimization and it works: one should never kill the app, just let it run. Reboots are ok. I've been using it for a week now and no black screen. As soon as I kill it and re-run it I get the black screen and need to uninstall+reinstall (clear cache+data+reboot does not work).
    below is the same shot with the two cameras:

    about google camera: not sure if this was already known but old 3.2.045 version of gcam works great!
    cheers

    PS: you need to disable energy saving on the camera app, otherwise you will get the black camera bug.

    Curious how fast does your nexus 6 charge now? I haven't used mine in forever but it seems like android 10 and 11 don't have quick charging or something. I used to get like 2100mah at full speed now it's like 1000.
    No prblm here,try use another cable or charger

    The several device forums I'm subscribed to light up mainly once a month after an update, and even then there are few comments. I put that down to the stability of the releases - good developers... :)

    - 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:
