[ROM][11][OFFICIAL] crDroid 7.8

I have installed it immediately upon notice. There are some new bugs described here:

The update progress itself went smooth without problem, however the bug of playing YouTube Vanced has become worse. For 1080p videos there starts to be glitches on the right half of the screen, which becomes out of sync with the left half of the screen. The left half of the screen plays just like normal. This is 1080p. In version 7.5 the 1440p video plays nicely, but in 7.6 the 1440p video completely stops after a few frames of playing, just like what happened to 2160p videos in 7.5, which is the same in 7.6.

Further testing has revealed that using VLC to play local files result the same - left half plays fine, but right half glitches and out fo sync. But, if VLC is playing from SMB stream such as my NAS, everything plays smoothly. I have no 4K videos for test on NAS, so I just tried 1080p ones.

In the meantime I have seen some UI revamps and improvements such as the volume adjustment bars. Thus, it is reasonable to believe that it’s CrDroid that probably eats too much of CPU/GPU which makes the local playback including VLC and YouTube Vanced to glitch; but network streaming such as NewPipe and VLC via SMB plays as usual. NewPipe can even play 4K videos without problem.

This problem probably has a link of that known bug of application icon animation glitch - which can be cured by disabling the blurs at the system level. Presumably it uses a lot of GPU which hits the bottleneck of hardware. Thus, the solution of all of these problems is probably try to do some optimization of the system-level graphics resource control.

I have done some further testing with Vanced and found that the player can handle 1440p50 or even 2160p50 without problem, but there may be occasional stutter of video for 2160p50. For 2160p60 it just stops playing after a few frames. Switching back from 2160p60 to 1440p60 also results a full stop of picture motion just like 2160p60. Switching back to 1080p60 sometimes results a good motion picture but the right half stutter. Closing the video and re-playing from 1080p often provide a better but not always perfect result.
 
Code:
desktop:~$ adb root
ADB Root access is disabled by system setting - enable in Settings -> System -> Developer options
@Golbinex
I am not seeing it in settings, not where it usually is anyway. What is the setting and correct value to set with adb if it can be set that way ? Or it could be set as new setting in Settings Database Editor after granting permissions, but need to know setting, value and table.
 
Known issues:
  • Disable blur in Settings -> Display -> Enable blurs to fix lagging animations
  • There seems to be issues with Magisk, not recommended to use
Do you think the build being a user build instead of userdebug may have anything to do with Magisk issues ? Why would you build a user build, and unless I missed it, why not warn people what the rom is or in this case isn't ?

    I would very much like to see an official crDroid 7.x for this device.

    The simple fact of the matter is this - LineageOS and crDroid are head and shoulders above everything else for stability. And that holds on virtually every device, from what I can see.

    Stability is the number 1 thing. I do not give a toss about fancy gimmicks and fanboyism.

    All the complaints about "my wifi keeps rebooting the device" and so on, are all utter **** from beginning to end. The people who post these things are clueless buffoons, and their posts are just pollution.

    My 3 current devices are all LineageOS 17.1 - Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T, Oneplus 5T, Samsung Galaxy Tab s5e - but they could equally well be crDroid - except of course, there is no official crDroid for the Samsung.

    Yet.
    Official build maybe next month. I want to wait at least 30 days before going official.

    This rrom is already supported.
    So why don't you support another rom like AICP,havoc or with else
    LuisROM is fork of crDroid. This is pure one. I use crDroid for long time so I have no reason to try other ROMs.
