Did someone flash it from stock Android 11? I need to unlock, install TWRP and so on, directly on 11. I have one on the stock and is really bugged, thinking to change to cr to see if it improves.

Just flashed from stock yesterday. It's running fine, still have some bugs, extra features not working but that's not a big problem, can use as daily rom. And it's an initial build, can be improved in the future

Hi,

1. Which gapps are you using? NikGapps basic and BiTGapps are both failing signature verification on Lineage recovery. Even accepting this, the installation fails. Magisk 21.4 fails signature, but installs and works.

2. While we have these conditions (Unofficial build, no recovery decrypting the internal storage) can you consider building a Gapps version?

3. Can we flash SHRP zip when booted to Lineage recovery (via apply update)?

Thanks.

1. Try openGapps
2. Most likely he won't build a Gapps version. He's aiming to go official and crDroid is against gapps build in principle. I may be wrong tho.
3. NO. Flashing any other recovery through LOS one WILL BRICK your device! Don't try it!

1. I don't use gapps so can't help with that.

2. crDroid doesn't support built-in gapps so no, maybe another ROMs have them.

3. Didn't try that. I think it's safer to flash recovery img to inactive slot via fastboot and flash recovery zip from there, should install recovery to both slots.

Since the rom uses its on first time setup it doesnt ask me for my google credentials to restore my google backup.

Can I force that somehow ? I can only see my Backups in Google drive but can't restore from em.

After flashing & following the instructions, Flash the 'NickGapps Stock zip' from the recovery. That should solve your problem & you will get the default 'Google Setup', that will allow you to restore you filles & settings.

Hello sir, hope you are well in the pandemic.
I'm using your rom for some time & loving it.
But, i like to indicate some cons & problems that i have faced.

First of all, in the "Installation Process"
in step 9, there should be a line added. As mentioned no twrp recovery can emulate the internal memory.
Solution: User should flash the 'LineageOS recover.zip' using the adb sideload. (entering twrp recovery, then advance, then adb sideload. Connect phone using usb, flash the zip file from the PC using SDK platform tool, command - "adb sideload <file name>". I think most of the noobs maybe having trouble, like me 😁.)

Second, After using the OS for about sometime i have noticed some bugs (problem).
1. some error (Force close) in some apps.
2. The auto screen off doesn't turn off the display until i manually turn it off by pressing power off button. (i've tried both turning on/off always screen & ambient display, but doesn't have any effect.)
3. Video streaming gets laggy (my network is fine & the lagging happens always.)
4. The Cast tile doesn't work.
5. The bugs mentioned above by the other users above.

Sir, i love your work very well. Its a cleanest & a well furbest OS for Mi A3. I believe if you give some effort to this OS it could be the best of all. I will keep you posted for more bugs.
Peace 🕊️😅

    i'm afraid you must visit service center or use this method (needs EDL cable or opening device): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CbIhdB14-kVzTulNpKBJjB1-R4y1hD3AlGZ5nGlkgik/
    Yeah that wasn't working as I don't run windows, I got the method working on linux though and am finally back in fastboot.

    For anyone wondering:
    I build QDL from linux using the git repository referenced here (make clean && make):
    Had to use the following command for each patch file 0-5:
    sudo ../../qdl --debug --storage ufs --include . prog_firehose_ddr.elf rawprogram0.xml patch0.xml
    The trick was to hold volup AND voldown while booting and spam the command until it started. Patches 0 and 4 took the longest, I didn't need an EDL cable.

    Now that I'm in fastboot, how should I install this?
    Flash the service ROM? and then follow the instructions here again?

    EDIT:
    After the EDL flash, I flashed the service ROM with it and booted that up.
    Then back to fastboot and flashed the v11 ROM linked in Step 1 and booted that up
    Then back to fastboot and follow the rest of the instructions and now I'm booted up in crDroid 7.4

    I finished step 8, but never got to the lineage recovery image, my device just powered off and no longer boots, or does anything :|

    Prior to that I flashed stock 10 using a script I have many times, then did the December then February stock OTA updates until the settings showed Android v 11, after that I followed the install instructions here.

    This is global model M1906F9SH. Is this some kind of soft brick? How can I fix this?
