Installed new kernel + tested several options for quick settings. Lag still there... sometimes it seems to be fine, sometimes I recognize it every few minutes.


Another question: can I save all ROM settings to restore them after full wiping the device?

Are you on correct firmware for your model?
I'm not aware of any way to save and restore your settings

I have a Poco f3 bought in Europe (via Amazon).
I used the recommended fw from the 7.28 build (https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/alioth/stable/V13.0.3.0.SKHMIXM/)
I saw, this fw is for global phone. Don't sure that this could be the problem.
For testing I just could flash the eu fw with TWRP?


Edit:

Maybe the pixel launcher could be the Problem?!
I installed the Nik Gapps 12L, cause the 12 Gapps didn't worked well (both launcher crashes then - known bug in changelog).

But if I change now to cr droid launcher, its crashing permanently and try to restart.

I am on latest 220805 version and kernel 2.28 with same firmware as you and I also bought mine on Amazon (Germany) I looked at your video and I saw that your brightness control was moved down, give it a shot and move it up, who knows it might help :)

You can also try to flash 220805 or wait for the next version.

I have also a European Version of Poco F3 and i am also on recommended global Version v13.0.3.0 skhmix and have no troubles and lags with CrDroid!
You should start with a clean install!
With Alpha Backup you can make a backup of your system settings but i would not do it because there are always some changes in system that can make troubles with old system settings!

Mhhh... Honestly no fun restarting to install full system :(

I installed and replaced all stock apps with the Nikgapps full package.
Do I get the cr droid launcher back again by installing the latest crdroid rom?

Do you use pixel launcher?

I think it also could be some system settings, causing the lags. But it's hard to test them all...

I'm using the 12L Lineage gapps (Mindthegapps) and Nova, but I think that a complete reinstallation and format data is the best way if you have been "dirty flashing" for a long time.

That's what I'm wondering. I did a complete clean flash with my actual system.
I'll try dirty flash the new ROM.

Mhh... I flashed dirty now. Followed the instruction from post #1,582

Now I am stuck at the cr droid Boot Logo for about 10 minutes already.
The whole flashing instructions are a PITA with crDroid imo. The ROM is lovely but I sometimes wonder how people manage to update and install it.
:LOL:

Even if it takes forever I'm only updating through the updater since it's not such a hassle. With flashing instructions it feels like I'm breaking the ROM half of the time...
:rolleyes:

Reboot to recovery, change active slot, reboot to see if it will boot all the way to system, if it does reboot to recovery 3.6.1_v3.4-skkk to make another try.
Changing the slot helped. But my individualization of the launcher are gone, several settings and some apps wont work finde. So what happened here :D? The other slot with the new rom is cleaned, now im on the old rom? Sorry for the question.... im not an expert with much of it.

Ill try it this way for today and see if its lagging.

Well you are now on previous version but all of your data should still be on your phone, my tip for you is to clean flash and use minimal gapps package, I had all kinds of trouble with the big gapps packages so I avoid thoose, Mindthegapps have been working whitout problems for me. Good luck!

Is the inbuilt updater working?
I thought that it did not because of the flash instructions.

I understand. But I like, that NikGapps replaces the aosp apps. Is there a way I can install only seperate GApps while replacing the Stock version?
Dont like to have 2 phone, sms etc. apps, I have to block one of them.

I feel the same but I just disable the ones I don´t want and install the Google version instead.

I like to have the AOSP phone app for call recording, so for me it is less trouble to disable a few apps then have a lot of unwanted bloat.

I really like that crDroid comes without Gapps so that everyone can choose what's best for them.
