First time installing crDroid to your Mi A2, or coming from another ROM:
** Make sure you're running a proper working Recovery (CWM or TWRP)
1. Boot into twrp (fastboot boot "path to twrp img")
format data and wipe dalvik system and data on both slots.
Set active slot to B
reboot into bootloader and boot twrp again ( fastboot boot "path to twrp img")
copy ZIPs to device and flash ROM
Set active slot to A
Reboot, and wait for booting. It takes ~3 minutes
For root, AFTER you boot into the ROM, you can go back to recovery and install Magisk XX.x (whatever is most recent).
Upgrading from earlier version of crDroid:
The only difference between clean flash as above and upgrading is you just wipe system & cache, leaving data. Everything else is the same. ***Remember to always clean flash before reporting problems. Clean flashing is always the best method of ROM install.
Don't expect any support if you:
- are not running the included kernel
- have installed any mods such as Xposed!
- have modified system files
- AOSPA (Paranoid Android)
- Many others... (if you're feeling upset being out of the thanks list just send a PM )
