I've been using this ROM for a few months now. I like it because of the battery life and stability.
Issues I encountered while using it.
- GPS navigation working inconsistently. It's a hit or miss. Somedays it works all day long with no problems. At other times it doesn't work at all - it doesn't fix my coordinates
- USB tethering (i.e. internet from phone's Wi-Fi to a laptop) not working at all
- sometimes the app drawer crashes and I have to force stop CRDroid Home [Launcher app] to make it work again
I'm on the version that's one month or so behind from the latest so it's possible that they are fixed.

I have always seen painstags painful with the Equalizer AudioFX in Bluetooth. It works on the first piece of music, then turns off when I go to the next. AudioFX indicates that it is active, which is wrong, deactivation and reactivation does not change anything. The only way to reactivate audiofx, which works every time is to pause the piece of music, then read. Painful, especially as under Havoc with the basic equalizer less evolved, I did not have any kind of plant.
There is no one who meets this problem of equalizer who turns off at times? Well, it's simple to reactivate, but it's really painful! I even expect, just because of this, to start at a less customized Rom like Havoc or Arrows, which has a management of the equalizer simpler but especially more stable. It would be very bad because this rom is really great!

Is it possible to replace Audio FX equalizer by the standard equalizer we found in Havoc or Arrows ? Audio FX bugs with Spotify and my bluetooth headphone.

I noticed that System Updates (not crDroid Updater) is using a lotk of background wi-fi and mobile data, have anyone noticed the same?
I can't disable network access, it doesn't give me any options to control this app/feature.

By blocking "ota.googlezip.net" in AdAway, that communication has stopped.
You just really saved me. I was planning on moving to another ROM, but thanks to you I can keep using crDroid, which I like the most.
Thank you, again!! :)

On another topic, if anyone is having problems with GPS disconnecting on Google Maps or other apps, try to change Google Play Services location permissions to "always on" or something like that instead of just "while using the app".
Seems like Play Services is the GPS provider for other apps, so they don't work well if it isn't allowed all the time access to the location.

    First time installing crDroid to your Redmi Note 5 Pro/AI, or coming from another ROM:

    ** Make sure you're running the latest TWRP Treble 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) Flash magisk (optional)
    7) Boot up

    For root, AFTER you boot into the ROM, you can go back to recovery and install Magisk 21.x or newer (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.

    You tell me

    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 )
