I just installed the rom (coming from v7.x) and I followed the installation steps, but my GPS isn't working at all for some reason Maps and GPS test both don't pin a location. What could be the problem, should I do? FW flash or something else?

Thank you very much for the hard work!
Previous version did not work OK with face recognition.
And before I could report it here, you released the current version with the fix. You are the best!

I am using the pixel experience recovery without DFE or Magisk, but I was unable to flash any update neither via system updater nor using the recovery.
The recovery log showed an issue with the cache partition. As I didn't found a solution for that I skipped a few crDroid versions - I didn't wanted to perform a clean flash.

I finally fixed the issue by cleaning the cache partition. This sounds like the obvious solution, but the option to clean the cache is hidden under factory reset in PE recovery 😑

Hello.
I came from crDroid 7, a nice and beautiful ROM with a nasty bug that hung the phone randomly and jeopardized my alarms for work. I took the decision to recreate bank tokens and jumped to crDroid 8 with A12.
Nicer and more beautiful. Last night I used the phone, put it to charge, went to sleep and when I woke up it was completely stuck. I had to force reboot using the power button.
Oh no.
Well, I have no logs but I'll start recording to try to find the problem.

Hi!
I have problems with wifi during the configuration.
I followed carefully the steps suggested in the main post.

Installed:
TWRP: twrp-3.4.0-10-cepheus-mauronofrio
FW: xiaomi.eu_multi_MI9_V12.5.6.0.RFACNXM_v12-11
OS: crDroidAndroid-12.0-20220306-cepheus-v8.2-hotfix
Gapps: NikGapps-stock-arm64-12-20220222-signed
DFE: DFE.zip (found on TG Mi9 group)

During the first config (i need to use google config since i use the google auto-backup but, even in CrDroid config, there is the same) NO WiFi is detected.
Repeated 3 times the installation starting from complete format extremely carefully but nothing.
Any Idea please?

你好!
我在配置過程中遇到了 wifi 問題。
我仔細按照主帖中建議的步驟進行操作。

安裝:
TWRP:twrp-3.4.0-10-cepheus-mauronofrio
FW:xiaomi.eu_multi_MI9_V12.5.6.0.RFACNXM_v12-11
操作系統:crDroidAndroid-12.0-20220306-cepheus-v8.2-hotfix
Gapps:NikGapps-stock-arm64-12-20220222-signed
DFE:DFE.zip(在 TG Mi9 組中找到)

在第一次配置期間(我需要使用 google 配置,因為我使用了 google 自動備份,但即使在 CrDroid 配置中也一樣)沒有檢測到 WiFi。
非常小心地從完整格式開始重複安裝 3 次,但一無所獲。
請問有什麼想法嗎?

Did you install fw before installing crDroid? This ROM says it includes firmware, no need to flash before. I think you may try formatting everything and installing crDroid clean again, or go back to official MIUI and then start clean with crDroid.

Phone screen froze again when charging and I was recording log. Same as crDroid 7: there's haptic response but screen won't turn on. Only solution is hard reboot using power button. Build 20220306.

On the Telegram channel, when you ask for bugs fixed to the bot, there's one entry that says "gps problem". I couldn't go further, though.

All in the list i reported in my post is installed.
I solved the WiFi problem flashing this: TWRP_CEPHEUS_Fix_WiFi_v1.0

Everone that suffer of this glitch can find the flashable file in attachment.

@Melandur thank you for your answer.

This situation happened to me many times, unfortunately I havent any log. Phone freezes after night, and alarm dont work. power button responded, but screen was black - only hard reset helped.

Hi!

First of all thanks for your hard work! My question is: as you seem to have the necessary knowledge, could you build OrangeFox with Mi9 device tree and kernel so we aren't forced to use DFE anymore and keep our devices crypted? Would be awesome

Thanks!

Hello there. Many thanks to the OP for this rom build and keep our device going.
We've been experimenting with this rom and do not have the sleep problem reported before because we are having a wake lock situation as the device does not enter deep sleep and has a very evident battery drain.

And even after dirty flashing nikgapps core again (because play services seems the culprit) it stays with it. Any advice?
Thank you.

You don't need to use DFE. You can update the rom without losing encryption.

1. Flash PE recovery via fastboot: https://download.pixelexperience.or...ence_cepheus-12.0-20220123-1916-OFFICIAL.img/
2. Boot into recovery, enable adb, and flash new crdroid build via adb sideload
3. Boot to system
4. (Optional) Getting root after update is tricky. Open flashed crdroid rom end extract boot.img. Patch it with magisk app. flash new boot via fastboot.

    This is really an awesome ROM, I've been using this for a year now and thanks to OTA, it gets refreshed once in a while :)
    But I was wondering if our Mi9 phones will eventually receive crdroid 9? Just saw that 9. 1 was released recently for some devices.
    Many thanks for your hard work on keeping our phones alive and up-to-date.
    cr8.x will get january sec.patches soon - going to test some stuff on cr9.1 this weekend as well ;)
