Hi everyone, and thanks for the great ROM. Device was running extremely smooth.

I have one major problem which now happened for the second time while dirty flashing a new version:
the device boots straight into recovery, all data seems to be lost, no ROM is installed.
1 Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong?
2 Is there a way to save my data/configuration or is the only solution a full wipe?

Edit: within TWRP I get an error "failed to mount data (invalid argument)"

thanks in advance

I can't speak for everyone but for me the device isn't reacting like this. I can use the phone as should.
Also in our TG group I haven't really seen such behaviour. Maybe I missed some reactions/feedback but I would have noticed such critical behaviour.
That's fair. The lockscreen issue is most likely a different issue (I have confirmed that the lockscreen detects false inputs in my case), but I've still noticed that it's only ever been a crDroid issue. The black screen issue is something that other people on this thread (above my posts) have experienced too so I can guarantee this is a real issue. I wish I would be able to say more, but, spontaneous issues are obviously hard to reproduce. Either way, I (and others) would still appreciate some investigation into this disruptive bug :) Thanks for your response

@toscha42 did you experience this?

@inkbjuu I checked the group and maybe there are some, but on a total that would be a non general issue. I dont say you're not experiencing that but the problem is I cannot reproduce.
F.e. we had a led issue (above), well I had the same and of course I can deduct what's wrong.
So your issue would be a problem to solve tbh.

Hi!
Question for daily users: is it stable and reliable for daily use? I'm still on crDroid 7, and thinking about upgrade in the future.
Thanks :)

    you know, every so often a massive hard freeze might happen, sometimes in phone calls and sometime in between locking or unlocking where the device screen wont turn back on but sound until you hold the power button

    Hi, yes is working.

    I'm sorry still using 7.22 and feeling totally satisfied. Hence, no problem like that.

    Cheers
