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.

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.

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 :-(

installed CRdroid 7.5, full flash plus gapps nano, everything ok and face unlock is perfect, but could not set up my data provider access point.. strange. Reverted to 7.2 (love the fast face unlock) and data access is ok again. Many thanks to CRDROID and hhrokarvi for the great work keeping shamus up to date.

dunno what happens if I leave my phone resting somewhere for 2 days: it never happened in the last 10 years! :) I can tell you I use it with blurr effects on by disabling HW overlay in developer options (and setting transitions time to 1.2, really love it): still I see no particular battery drain in my daily use.

Thanks; I updated to 7.5 and now battery life is normal again :)

Hi,
I can't seem to change allow access settings for any app.
Also my Google cam is showing just black screen, but the other camera works fine.

I've read that TWRP isn't really up to date for Shamu, whereas Orangefox is, even though Amir, its maintainer, seems to have been absent for a few months. I've been using Orangefox for backup and restore for months and it's flawless. If there is a new TWRP give it a go, but keep an Orangefox backup off-device just in case.

Alright I just stick with orange fox for now thanks

    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.

    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:

    Gcam Go

    Gcam 3.2

    about google camera 3.2: I actually got a black screen after about one week use despite energy saving settings :(. Now trying with version 2.7.008 so far so good.

    UPDATE: Gcam 3.2 is OK as long as you disable energy saving on it and NEVER kill it. Reboots are fine. If you kill it, when you next run it you get black screen and need to reinstall (clear cache+data+ reboot does not work)
    2nd UPDATE: I finally found the problem with gcam 3.2 ... after some time it always changed the icon and stopped working. The new icon was the updated one so I finally figured out what happens: automatic update replaces version 3.2 with 4.2 and so it stops working! End of the story: just install gcam 3.2 and stop automatic updates. Energy saving can stay on and the app can be killed like any other.
    Sorry for the long story. Hope this helps, gcam HDR+ is so wonderful :)
    cheers

    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

    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

    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 )

    Note

    - It's STILL a BETA -ish. As far as calls go, I haven't had the problem personally in this update. Been running it for a day. Camera gives a headache sometimes, which can be mitigated by a quick reboot. That's all about that, but your mileage may vary.
    - 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:
