Yes. I've been did my initial setup months ago, but if I remember correctly, mobile networking is disabled by default.

Is anyone having issues with getting gmail notifications? I am wondering I am needing to factory reset.
I see comments in Playstore that some are facing the same issue based on comments, so I'm not exactly sure.

It's pretty straightforward. The link what you mention is crDroid project site. Since this is an unofficial build, obviously you won't find it there. The download link is explicitly in the description in the download section.

    Anyway you can release a patch to fix volte on this a12 version?

    Many thanks!

    VoLTE is working with the same magisk module as it was on A11.

    I will try to replace gapps with a different package, but I don't know when I will have time. Also it's possible that it will need complete reflash as a different gapps package and an already installed system can ruin some things, but I need to test this.

    Hello @hunfatal
    It's not so bad if your updates take a while, as long as they come at all I'm very happily grateful for them.

    With the new TWRP is that when you put it on the system no longer boots up and is in a continuous loop in recovery.

    Oh and I noticed 2 things that are missing image contrast to my oneplus 8T
    Smart Charging where you can set the maximum charging time.
    And the button to exit all apps in memory with one button does not work or missing.

    BTW does anyone have issues with the Google Photos app? No matter what I do, I can't use it to edit photos. Deleted app data anc cache multiple times, uninstalled the updates from Google play, nothing helps.

    would anyone of you do me a favor and check if the google photos edit feature works?
    i can't get it to work :(

    Same for me, on v8.9 (12.1-20220911). When I tap 'edit' in Photos, I only get a spinning wheel. I fixed it for a while by uninstalling the Photos app updates and not allowing updates, but now even that is failing.

    I also cannot Copy text in certain apps, such as any any browser apps... I can highlight text but the 'copy / etc.' menu does not pop up.

    I did another clean flash of the 12.1 ROM but it still has the same issues.

    Someone mentioned they think there's an issue with the bundled Gapps, which I think might be the case. Hopefully someone can offer a fix, or a new version comes out without the issues.

    Until then, I'll go back to the Android 11 version :)

    ROM updated to v7.20 with the latest upstream changes. I've disabled smart charging in this version because it's not working.

    I've also prepared the build (kinda) for A12/crDroid v8, but I don't have time to try it, hopefully I can try it and release it in the next month.

    Update for crDroid 7.13 available to download.

    Happy New Year for everyone!

    Hey man this ROM has been extremely solid. A small issue here or there but nothing too bad by any means. Thank you again for building, and sharing.
    If you do decide to possibly build another ROM, I humbly suggest AICP.
    I have the latest running on my HTC One M8 and it has some really cool features!
    Don't take this as me not being grateful for this ROM though, it really is nearly perfecto.
    I just love variety and trying the different ROMs.
    The inclusion of PixelGapps and more specifically the Pixel launcher really does help to make this so close to stock but with an enormous amount of customization.
    AICP is in my plans. I want to try it out myself, we will see. :)

    Android 12.1 build is uploaded, links are in the first comment of the thread.

    Please note that installation method is different, you need to flash the recovery on the vendor_boot partition, instead of the boot partition. And for the first install you need to flash the base from the factory image (radio and bootloader), the rest should be in the rom. And take care by wiping data in recovery because it wipes the internal storage as well.

    Dirty upgrade could work in theory, but I didn't and won't try it, I did a clean install.

    Also GApps does not contain Pixel Launcher because I couldn't find the reason why it is crashing with a permission error. Opensource Launcher3 is included, you can download Pixel Launcher from the store if you want to use it.
