never for me, after dirty flashing latest build. Did you clean cache&dalvik before rebooting system?
It is, never had any trouble, have been using it as a daily driver right from the start. Smoother and more stable than some other a13 roms out there.
I never experienced any crackling in sound, especially not with notification sounds.Munch had an update and what was particularly interesting is the changelog said sound crackling was fixed.
On Alioth there's also sound crackling. But on testing, it only affects streams that isn't media. Most notable on notification sounds.
Here's hoping next build implements the same fixes. Yes, I am on the recommended firmware. This issue exists since first crDroid 9 build. It doesn't exist on crDroid 8
What kind of screen protection did you use? I use pin+fp and never had any trouble decrypting my data with skkk and orangefox.
I dirty flashed from the last 9.0 version, but I would not expect any trouble from earlier versions either, you only need to clean flash if you were still on 8.x. I never before hat trouble with dirty flash when I skipped a build.
