Development [ROM][13.0] crDroid 9 [OFFICIAL]

Search This thread
There seems to be a problem with version 2023-03-19. As already mentioned the phone crashes multiple times a day when leaving it in standby for a while and after every crash all hidden/password locked apps get revealed again and the keyboard settings from FlorisBoard get reset.

Downgrading to 2023-02-23 causes a bootloop unfortunately.

That's very unfortunate for you guys I'm sorry...
Lucky me, I don't have any issues. Camera works including panorama mode. Slow mo never worked. Phone doesn't crash or freeze, alarm works fine in the morning. Perfect ROM right now.
I've changed kernel to Agnisha (14-03 build), but I ran the original kernel for a day and no problems apart from dodgy colours on screen. Agnisha has solved it for me and seems to work well.
Also my car's Bluetooth is showing all my track titles on car's screen, Finally!!

Btw I format data, flashed a full MIUI 13v global firmware, no reboot, then format data, then CrDroid (23-02-23), then latest NikGapps core + all add-ons apart from Pixel launcher (done all this back in Feb).
Finally then updated to latest CrDroid via system updater in settings couple of days ago. All good for me.

it's a dilemma. either I try downgroading and risk ending up in a bootloop or I try another kernel.
I'll probably just wait a few more days and see if @neobuddy89 manages to release a hotfix or something.

luckily camera is working.. it's just the crashes/freezes, no screen/touch responses, reddish low-light screen and the alarm clock which I can't rely on any longer.

I like your posts writing style(y)

Did you've tried lineageos 20 vanilla or like me the pulkits ensemble?

I have the 8/256 model. I just got this phone. Touch does not work in twrp and it doesn't work in the CRdroid operating system either.

What is the problem?

AAudio driver is again not working with the latest release. We had this issue a few releases before.

the thing that previously fixed the issue was probably called:
* Added missing QCOM audio effect libraries

Some games and emulators can choose from AAudio driver or OpenSL ES driver for audio playback. Some unfortunately only use AAudio driver and these have currently no audio playback anymore.

at the time I was instaling my phone there was no vanilla lineageos 20 ROM. I tried pulkits lineage, but as said it wasn't a lineage, it was rather a pixel rom with bloated gapps. so I ended up using vanilla crdroid, and it was actually great, except the latest buggy release and some rumours of miui parts that are still calling home.

if the current problems get solved anytime soon, I don't see a necessity to move to another rom. so I just wait and see how everything turns out.

I have made the same experiences and changed after GApps bloated "LineageOS" kind of thing and crDroid to LineageOS vanilla ROM form @2spirit :


That one is rock solid stable ... with long battery lifetime ... and does not "call home".

Of course it also has some downsides:
- A little bit effort in installing microG as GApps alternative (description is in the thread)
- No LEICA / MIUI camera (GCam is bad in video)

But summarizing it is the best and most secure ROM for this device yet.

And there is hope that it will become official as @2spirit is trying to get it official.

I have solved the crashes/Freezes issue by deploying Sleepy Kernel. Bluetooth is working fine.
Track info is getting displayed properly in Car Connect now.
only issue pending is No ringtone when connected to BlueTooth. Any help will be appreciated.
The freeze and force reboot issue hit me right now. Sleepy Kernel doesn't change a thing. Plus TWRP fails to backup with error 255, tarkfork or something.

Anyone had success with a dirty flash to alst build?

Agreed. Yesterday morning, my phone started freezing again. I agree that wiping delvic and cache might help for day or half but this freezing issue will eventually come back.

So shifted to 24-Feb built. Phone is critical with office access and data so cant keep with freezing issue.

I have exactly the same freeze. It happens when the phone is in deep sleep so I would be tempted to say that it comes from the compilation of the new kernel (I did not have the problem with the previous version, which admittedly contained some Xiaomi bloat, but which did not crash).

how did you downgrade? clean install or dirty flash over latest version?


the freezes and crashes seem to happen more often over time.
unfortunately there hasn't been a fix or update yet.. and I'm also looking for a way to switch back to a working version.
has anybody successfully downgraded to the previous version with dirty-flashing? I'm not gonna go for a clean install; if it won't work with dirty flashing I'll stick with the current version.

Agree. After flashing sleepy kernel, I thought its resolved but after day or half, it started again.

Clean install. No other way.

So regarding freezing issues I decided to switch the ROM, I'm with arrowOS now. I liked a few things better with crdroid, it's much more open to customization.
On the other hand I went to bed with 85% battery and got up with 84 or 83%. Also better battery stats shows a big amount of deep sleep time.
It didn't with crdroid, no matter which kernel.

Maybe that's also caused by hardware differences, I don't know.

    So what launcher does NikGapps give you? I also do not like the Pixel Launcher. The crDroid Home was good, but not Pixel Launcher.
    I stick to CrDroid home, it's much much better than Pixel.

    I always used to flash NikGapps full where it kept "CrDroid home" but recent updates for Nikky apps started forcing Pixel launcher with no option to choose the launcher.
    So to keep all the Google apps and features, I flash core + all the add-ons separately, avoiding Pixel launcher add-on. Then it comes up with CrDroid home automatically happy days!

    Anyone with a Focaltech (fts_ts) touch using crDroid? Last time I tried (as with other custome ROMs), I lost touch...
    Running version 9.3 on my RN11 with fts_ts (ic2 1-0038) touchscreen. My RN10P has a goodix screen.

    I am also curious of "are the files/devs the same as for the RN10P", since crDroid provides official ROM's for both phones. crDroid developers may be able to port the spes "fix" to the RN10P.
    The following new spes thread might provide clues to the official crDroid devs:

    So, as I'm still looking, let me re-ask this... 🤔
    afaik gsi roms work with fts_ts touchscreen

    I tried all versions of crdroid, there is a problem on the lock screen, when the clock is always show, the lock screen goes and goes, double-clicking it does not open or a ridiculous screen occurs. There is no such error in other roms I tried.
    had this issue too, as well as on lineage os, don't know what triggers that.

    Nice :D I really don't understand why so many people just say wipe everything and make a clean install. Even with backups of everything I still need 1 or 2 full days to completely redo all my system customizations and it's such an insane amount of work.

    I had been using crDroid for about a year, I really like the ROM and I decided to do a clean install to version 9 (A13). Everything works including MTP, camera, bluetooth, wifi, hotspot.. I didn't find any problems in use, but... but there is a battery drain problem, the phone in airplane mode consumed 20% of the battery in 8 hours battery, while before with the same apps installed the consumption in this mode was about 3%, I hope that you will be able to have a good battery life even with this ROM because currently with moderate use of the phone, you are not even able to get to the end of the day with 5000mha of battery. I thank the developer for the excellent work done so far and I look forward to solving these problems.
    Thank you!

    Ok. Finally got Magisk working with banking and intune company portal app. Thank you @Laptapper for valuable hint.

    2 3 things to remember.

    If you are installing Magisk after installing all other apps, its good. You will see all apps you need to hide in Zygisk. BUT after installing Magisk,

    1. Reboot your phone first.
    2. DONT open anything. First open Magisk and hide it in settings.
    3. Enable Zygisk and add apps in denylist there Eg banking apps, intune company portal etc.
    4. Hide every google process (tip. Enable "Show system apps" and "Show os apps". Blindly hide all google process there).
    5. Clear cache and storage of not only google but all the apps also which you have hidden in zygisk denylist. This may result in reconfigure the apps again like login again etc.
    6. Reboot the phone again.
    7. Now open all the apps and configure.

    For Outlook and MS Team, delete and add the work account again.


    Some feedback about new build of 23Dec.

    Ok. Dirty flashed the new 23Dec build of this ROM over 17Dec build. Long press on home button still not working. I mean not doing anything.

    Another issue which I found was Alarm was not working in 17Dec build.IIts working in 23Dec Build.

    Another issue which I found is when you try to change the font from settings-- crdroid setting -- user interface -- font, it will only be applied to system settings and not to other areas like app drawer or whatsapp. In earlier version, changing fonts gets applied to all areas like app drawer and whatsapp also.

    Touch is comparatively better than 17Dec build. Atleast in last 1 hour usages.

    And that Battery drain issue is back. Lost 6% in 1 hour of usage. Lets monitor this for another week or two. Lets hope this 6% is only because of my usages.

    Thanks once again @Laptapper and @HidetoraChishu

    This thread is not as up to date as the Telegram one is.
    The storage problem will not occur when using this TWRP.
    You should think that we don't all have telegram accounts ... I don't have one...
