Flashed without DFE, will try PE Recovery if there is no new TRWP update until next Update.

Everything is working for me, only the led isnt glowing while charging.

Thank you for supporting this nice rom!

Which recovery did you use then when it wasn't PE recovery? And may I assume that your device was not encrypted before when flashing without DFE succeeded?

Cheers
Toscha
first flash with TWRP, will try PE recovery for the first update.

can someone check if android auto works on the car
aa is working fine with aawireless for me.
Check the gnickapps addons and flash the aa addon additionally to the version (minmal,basic or whatever) you prefer.



Edit: Update with PE Recovery and without dfe seems to be working. Rom is booting normaly. :)

Sorry for asking the same question again, but was your device encrypted before you flashed 8.1?

Cheers
Toscha

I flashed 8.1 (first version) with twrp
Rebooted into twrp flashed nikgapps basic + addons like aa (see instruction in first post)
Boot into rom installed all apps and do my settings.
After the first update was released:
Reboot into bootloader and flashed PE recovery, boot into crdroid again and updated normaly with updater.


Phone status in encrypted.

    GPay is up and running again. Clearly was fault on Google's side not related to any ROM or device being rooted. Even stock Pixel devices were affected.

    damn...installed the pe recovery, and made the ota ...
    now my android system cant load and the data maybe currput... :-/
    Hello,

    I had installed the variant with PE bootloader. I have done several automatic updates since.
    The last update stuck is the phone is in an infinite loop because it seems to fail to launch the 8.9 update.

    I am not a pro, what I did was "the sorcerer's apprentice", follow these instructions at your own risk and responsibility

    To solve the problem:

    Bash:
    fastboot flash recovery .\twrp-3.4.0-10-cepheus-mauronofrio.img
    fastboot reboot recovery

    In TWR unlock RW and restart SYSTEM.

    /!\ At this point your phone should work but any update will break it. /!\

    MAKE YOUR BACKUPS NOW, you will lose the DATA partition
