Development [ROM][12.1][OFFICIAL][ALIOTH/ALIOTHIN] crDroid v8.9 [13.09.2022]

Search This thread
Working fine with me since crDroid 8.7, and still working fine with crDroid 8.8. Did you use the recommended firmware and cleaned flash, or what?
crDroid is the first ever ROM i flashed after waiting with pain for 7 days for Mi Unlock. Yes, flashed the recommended EU firmware and also clean flashed. The proximity doesn't work on WhatsApp though and haven't yet experimented on other apps.

I am also facing negative charging amperage if i play games while charging. I think i can live with the proximity problems since my previous device proximity sensor is no good either for lefties, but the charging issue does bug me a lot. All other stuff is very great though, even better than stock

If possible don't gaming while charging as it would cause heat. If the temperature goes too high the charging speed would be reduce to prevent overheat.

I totally understand the advice, but the game is SimCity BuildIt, a really not demanding game. Additionally, the temps were never high in the first place (35 C), so I doubt the negative charging is due to heat.

I will try another kernel and see if it fixes things, the one also made by the same dev! Nevermind! The kernel is built-in with the 16 Aug build

Last time I tried to update (via twrp dirty), I had to reinstall the whole system.

How do I can update the Rom corectly without having problems?
Just use the system inbuilt updater?

Do I have to reflash magisk and will an update install the stock apps? Cause I have replaced them with the nikgapps package.

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!
Finally I reinstalled the Rom with a full wipe. Now I'm on 8.5.22 and the lags are better. After I watched the fix notes from the latest built (8.16.22) there is an info for this Problem: "* fix QS expand lag when VoLTE/VoWiFi icons are enabled".

Maybe this will help to full fix the problem. Now Im having less lags, only sometimes when opening the quicksettings bar.

After installing the latest update im not anymore on twrp recovery.

Can I just flash the TWRP via fastboot mode or what is the easiest way to get it back? Can I get problems, cause my device is still encrypted?

Last time I ruined my installation by flashing dirty via twrp. Now I used the system built-in updater. Took about 1h, but worked well in the end. Even magisk still worked after reboot.
But now I have the CrDroid recovery and want to go back to TWRP. Anyone knows the correct commands to install it and how?

Reboot your device into Fastboot mode, then type "fastboot boot 3.6.2_12-RedmiK40-RedmiPOCOF3_v3.8.3_A12-alioth-skkk_4f7299ea.img" into CMD. Your device will boot into TWRP recovery. To install the recovery permanently, you need to go to the Advanced menu and press the "Flash current booted TWRP" option.

Download the recovery from this link.

Thx. I was able to fix it: flashed twrp via bootloader and then magisk again.

Is the twrp recovery included in cr droid, so I just have to enter your posted command?


Now the system works well again.

But I think, there is still a lag sometimes, when opening the (extanded) quicksettings menu.

I get a short freezing/lag during the app minimisation of chrome, threema and Google phone app, if I quick tap multiple times on the home button.
Don't know, but animations seem to make a few problems here.
