Yup. So I basically first removed the screen lock pin > went into recovery > flashed the update .zip with "flash recovery ticked > rebooted to recovery > flashed the same gapps I had on the previous version > wiped dalvik > reboot to system. No issues so far, updated to latest.
Thanks 4 your update.

Also had success this time. Removed Magisk before update. So I guess prior update problems was with TWRP Version or bigger Nikgapps package (and/or add-ons) (or a combination of that).

Only test case left is to check if Android Auto works without installing it via Nikgapps add-on. Which raises the question if I can install new Nikgapps add-ons (besides the package that was installed before) on update procedure? Anyone tried this already, if yes with which result?

And of course thx again to raystef66 for the update

How do you guys deal with Nikgapps on dirty update procedure. Some Nikgapps apps cannot be installed on dirty update and so the Nikgapps installer installs the AOSP package even when set install mode to GoogleClock=1. For example this is the case for clock app. (Log: Can't dirty flash GoogleClock)

I need to change the PDC profile to use Vowifi. How can I change it permanently? I found a good profile, but after the restart the profile reseted. If i delete the default profile, an other profile activated instead of what I want.

You have to live with it. Nikgapps even stated on their homepage that you cant dirty update g clock and g board.

I dirty flashed latest crdroid using TWRP 3.6.2 with encryption support. I did not remove screenlock/fingerprint prior to the dirty flash. Everything worked like a charm.


Thank you for keeping this phone up to date!

I installed several gcam versions like BSG and Nikita GCam ports. They work fine for me. For me (not using any gapps), it was key to previously install "Gcam Services Provider" via F-Droid store.

How to import contacts via .vcf file?

I am not using any gapps. The crdroid contact app says that it cannot import the VCard ("the format isn't supported"). I generated the .vcf file using the export option from the contact app producted by simplemobiletools (downloaded via F-Droid). I am wondering whether the import or export option of any of these two contact apps might have a bug.

The problem of not using the original crdroid contact app: the phone app does not directly show the contacts. You always have to open the third party contact app.

Thanks for any help.

Battery drain is still an issue for me in current update. Last update I fixed it by flashing Balaam-Kernel with Franko Kernel Manager. Will try it again. Not sure what's draining it so much.
well it is not stock rom or kernel, I am not rooted and don't have that kind of issue. did you by chance leave pocket mode, AOD or nfc/GPS enabled? and what is your boost app?

AOD and is off, NFC I keep on, but that was never a problem with other ROMs. 😕
Just turned on battery friendly pocket mode. I switched kernels already which fixed the problem before, but will watch it next update.

Boost is just a reddit client, although your reply made me see that this might be confusing. 😅
