crDroid is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device also attempting to bringing many of the best features existent today. We're mainly based on LineageOS so use custom kernels compatible with them!


Features
  • Lots of goodies. Working to add more.


Always Have a full functional Backup. Just in case!


ROM: DOWNLOAD ROM


GAPPS: DOWNLOAD GAPPS

First time installing crDroid to your Moto G5 Plus, or coming from another ROM:

** Make sure you're running a proper working Recovery such as TWRP
1) Copy crDroid zip, gapps zip to your device
2) Boot into Recovery
3) Wipe cache, system, & data (or just cache & system for a dirty flash).
4) Flash ROM
8) Flash gapps
9) Boot up

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.

KNOWN ISSUES
SELinux is PERMISSIVE

Don't expect any support if you:
- are not running the included kernel
- have installed any mods such as Xposed!
- have modified system files

Thanks to:

- @kubersharma
- Google
- LineageOS
- SlimRoms
- AOSPA (Paranoid Android)
- OmniRom
- NamelessROM
- Many others... (if you're feeling upset being out of the thanks list just send a PM )

EDIT: First of all, thanks for porting crDroid PIE V5.0 [Android 9.0] to G5 Plus!
Looks promising.
Install worked without problems, booting up and first conf as well.
What i missed was a setting for seeing mobile network status in the navbar and the cam app crashed.
Another thing i couldnt find was the inbuilt root. As far as i can see the inbuilt root is not working.

And after writing back my backup it tells me that my pin is wrong. why is that?

Camera not working for me either. Also I am having the BT/WiFi conflict issue where WiFi disconnects randomly when my watch is paired up with the phone.

Otherwise great initial release! :good:

OTAs are now enabled and there's a new build linked in the OP
Was using previous build for a couple days, everything running very well except safetynet didn't pass in Magisk (but had root & modules worked fine). Yesterday was surprised to get an update notification, downloaded and dirty flashed in TWRP only wiping cache/dalvik at the end before reboot, after reboot all was fine and now Magisk passes safetynet. ROM has most of the crDroid Settings working including built-in Adaway with 15 host sources, it's a nice 9.0 ROM and would recommend to others.

I think this may motivate another "piece of Pie" for me. I have tried several flavors but fall back to the comfort of Oreo due to issues and missing features. I did try the last build of crDroid but was not getting Magisk, at all. I learned, later that a few reboots would have remedied that...

*** I am in ***
Looks very good and stable, thus far. One thing that I thought was there in earlier build (probably wrong) was the grid view of recents. Not a big deal but much preferred over the rotating tiles. Great work!

*** A few more notes ***
BT headset (Skull Candy) not working with phone audio. Media is working fine.
BT phone in MB working
V2T option not available with GBoard
Rebooting to recovery option not working - boots back into system
