Encrypt data
As crDroid doesn't enforce encryption, you'll have to flash a special flashable zip in recovery in order to run encrypted
Please follow steps below

Warning Warning Warning --- This works only on clean flash
1. Flash crDroid.zip in recovery
2. Flash encrypt zip
3. Reboot to system

Note:
The encrypt zip needs to be flashed after every update
So flash crDroid zip and follow with encrypt zip

Note2:
Recovery that is able to decrypt data is required in order to see data while booted to recovery
Official TWRP should be alright

Well gapps for A11 are not quite ready
You'll have to seek a different version of gapps on the web
Note that unofficial opengapps turned to bootloop for me due to some missing permissions
The one posted in op is working but might miss some stuff as it's core version
Until a later date when gapps for a11 are more stable, you'll just have to play and install different versions for your needs

There's a bug with the Gapps release. Need to setup everything and then restore from the settings.
Will give a brief review after done with the setup.
Thanks dev!

Good work on first release with most of customisation.
Does app migrate of backup and restore work here?
I have strange problem of any ROM working on custom kernel only, stock kernel fc all app after migrate restore!

I found, that Bluetooth Audio does not work.
Audio output will not switch to a BT device, once it gets connected.
If you have a media playback in your notifications, you get an Option, to select another output device there. When I select my BT headphones, it does nothing and the BT settings will say, that the connection to the BT device can't be established.

I tested this with multiple BT headphones and a BT speaker.

Can confirm that Bluetooth connection does not work. Also, did anyone else have their recovery changed to Lineage recovery?! Flashed using TWRP and now it's Lineage recovery. How do I change it back? Guess I'll be Googling.

Can't confirm BT yet, the LOS recovery thing happened though. Just use fastboot from pc and flash it again if you don't have root on the device otherwise you can use the twrp app or an app like flashify. A custom kernel or magisk should make twrp stick. You simply can't flash twrp or basically anything through LOS recovery.

After "Preparing your phone..." and full white screen appears and i'm blocked. Anyone experienced this issue?

Another issue I noticed is that the ROM doesn't recognize my SD-Card. I came from ReloadedOS there works, maybe dev can check commits from them? But if you manage to get into the OS, it is super fast!

I'm not sure if you mean external SD or internal SD, but for me on stock kernel it recognizes both. My internal SD and my 128gb Samsung micro SD card.

Twrp/fastboot corrupted after installation

Installed the rom and it replaced my twrp recovery. Now i am unable to change the recovery from neither recovery nor fastboot. Whenever i try to sideload any other file, it shows me the following error
"E:footer is wrong
E:Signature verification failed
E: error:21"

What I did to get back twrp was the following:
Downloaded the latest official twrp.
Downloaded Minimal fastboot&adb and extracted it.
Copyed the recovery.img to the folder where i extracted fastboot.
Rebooted phone into bootloader.
I typed the following command: 'fastboot boot recovery.img' and i got back into twrp where I used the 'Install Image' to install recovery.

I hope this helps ;)

My external SD Card appears as corrupted, even tho in recovery it works fine and when I install other roms i can read/write from/to it without problems.
