Just out of curiosity: why this rom is based on the Android L version (which is the so-called "special feature drop" intended for large screens) ?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can/would help me understand.
The simple answer is this is the new version. It did also contain some changes for regular devices. The regular pixels also get the 12L version for exact same reason. Internally Google calls this Android 12.1

Very impressed with this so far, but I have one small problem. Play protect certification shows my device as not certified, which obviously restricts me somewhat.
Might anyone have any suggestions on how to overcome this? I googled some solutions but nothing's working, unfortunately. 😒

*EDIT*
Found solution here 👍

Anyone got the dialer app working fine? The person on the other side is hearing an echo of himself. I don't have this problem with the stock samsung rom.

The camera flash problem is in every rom.
Try using ZGCAM 7.4 or Footej instead of aosp camera.
I was able to connect to wifi without a problem with and without a sim card.

First of all, thank you very much for your work @expressluke.
I have crDroid 7.13 up and running on herolte for my son.

Is it possible to move to 8.4 and keep all the data (pics, apps, accounts)?
It should be possible to do so (make a backup first in case something does go wrong). You just need to flash the new 8.4 version and provide Google apps package for the new version.

I did it and it went like a charm.
- wipe cache
- flash crDroid
- flash NikGapps omni (as I used it before)
- reboot
Welcome to Android 12. Many thanks.

Something that is not working, is enable fingerprint and faceID. My son is using a kids account and at android 12, this requires the approval of an adult. When I click OK, it brakes and I am back in safety settings.
Is setup of fingerprint and faceID possible with standard account or does it brake as well?

Any updates for this? Is this rom dead it hasn't been updated since May so it's no longer on the latest security update.
