crDroidAndroid v8.10 (31 OCT 2022)
Hello,
after installing the latest update my phone does not start anymore. It is stuck in boot animation.
Booting into TWRP shows me that several symlinks or bind mounts are gone. The folder "/data/media" is available with all content, but the folders "/sdcard" and "/storage" are empty.

My "data" partition is _not_ encrypted and after installing the rom, I installed "encryption-disabler-sweet" and "rmcrypt".

How can I fix the missing mounts or symlinks? I searched the internet serveral hours for information where these steps are done (config file, startup script etc.), but did not find any useful information.


Regards,
Helmut

What version of TWRP are you using? Try use the lastest version then format with "yes". Reinstall ROM, boot to system. If this works from here then install NikGapps.

Yes format so you are starting off on a claen base. Inconvenient I know but necessary to troubleshoot.
Thank you for your help! Unfortunately I could not simply install the current version of crdroid. I had to install and start MIUI first. Afterwards I could install TWRP, crdroid and bitgapps. Nikgapps do not work for me.

Now I am busy restoring my apps and data...

Regards,
Helmut

Come back to crdroid after using pixelos, have to say this is much better! Deep sleep working so far and a lot smoother experience. Thanks for the great ROM.

Hi, I used crDroid7 for a longer time and was satisfied, but because TWRP 3.7.0_12-0 seems to handle the former encryption problem with A12 I yesterday flashed this TWRP. Afterwards in TWRP I formatted data-partition without encryption and flashed crDroid8, Flame-Gapps and Magisk. First boot was quick and I restored my apps with Swiftbackup. All went fine and after some time I rebootet into TWRP to make a backup, but now TWRP wants the PIN for the data-partition. Did I miss something like some dm-verity stuff or similar?

At this point I tried to restore an A11 TWRP-backup, but of course it could not write to the data-partition. So I tried to format it, but not even that worked. After next reboot to system I got the message that the data must be initialized and I confirmed that. After that in TWRP I was able to reformat data and restore my old cdDroid7. Now I'm ready for the next try, but what was the problem here?

This clearly happened because you didn't do the thing. Everybody knows about the thing. 🤓

Hello everyone!
I recently got my new Sweet device and I was planning on installing crDroid, but I have some questions:
-Does the unlimited Google Photos storage work with MicroG?
-Should I install this version first and wait for crDroid 9 to be more stable? It's a pain in the ass to install and set everything again as you had it before.
-Are banking apps working with Magisk?
-The correct order would be TWRP, cdDroid, MicroG/Gapps, Magisk?
-What is your favorite feature of this ROM?

Thanks a lot

It's long known issue, from the first crdroid 8. Some people here claims it happens only to a certain display panel (mine does it too). One of reason I've abandoned crdroid for sweet.

Fyi, I've tried others rom: evox, elixir, ricedroid, derpfest -- none of them is having this issue.

    For OTA updates, do you need the crDroid recovery, or will the TWRP 3.6.2+ work?
    Dirty flashing v8.10 works just fine with OrangeFox. So I think it is safe to assume that TWRP 3.6.2+ will work as well. If not you could (temporarily) flash and use OrangeFox instead. Beware that the current v8.12 versions will not work with dirty flash but will boot into recovery instead! Hopefully this will get fixed soon by developers in an upcoming v8.13 build 🙏
