Hi, dirty flashed latest version, it doesnt boot so reinstalled Nikgapps omni. Everything is working fine now, except google play store which is offline. I tried to clear data and cache of google play store and services. It doesn't solve the issue. Anyone know how fix it please?

I had the same problem! Always went offline google play store with any gapps package! The only package that worked for me was Nikgapps ( CORE ) Install the rom and gapps together and then boot. and it worked for me

I had this problem already with clean instal of the crDroid 8.5, was not able to get gapps to work, play store always offline. Frustrated, i changed to the Evolver ROM as gapps are integrated and working without issues.

Hi,
I can't hear the ring/knock sound when I call someone anymore since version 8.6. I hear absolutly nothing until the person on the other end picks up. I used version 7.19 before i switched to 8.6 where that worked fine. clean flashing 8.7 did not solve the issue.

Hope somebody can help me.

Hey, still happy with the ROM. Found one issue for me so far. From time to time the phone freezes on me, while it's on the charger with display off. Never experienced this when on battery. Only thing that helps then is long pressing the power button and rebooting. Anyone else experiencing the same?

Thanks for the Rom! Works great overall.
One question: "Is these a way to refresh the widevine certificate such as in the xiaomi.EU Roms?"

My device is loosing the l1 certificate after some days. It doesnt matter which Rom I'm using.
The refresh always helped but i dont like to go back to xiaomi.eu.

Last version + clean installation

Hi,
I installed the previous version, after first boot i updated to last version, and then it never started. Freezed at boot.
So possibly it was because I didn't install DFE. And the TWRP I couln't acess local storage.
So where can I download the DFE ?

you do not need DFE. Better use your phone encrypted:

But the thing is, after an update, my phone didn't start anymore. And I couldn't access the internal memory over TWRP anymore, had to format and reinstall everything!!!

you should use Pixel Experience Recovery instead of twrp, twrp isnt working good with android 12

im using this method posted here by one of users, works perfectly fine, phone encrypted

At that time I also tried to switch from an unencrypted phone with TWRP. So "simply" installed PE Recover and tried to boot....didn't work for me. Had to redo everything. But you can still try your luck. You can't lose anything. :)

But possibly after you have installed PE Recovery flash the ROM again using ADB. Maybe that will help.
