All works finely in stock.
Do not need Viper, Dolby and other sound stuff (best sound in stock).
Support only in Telegram: @crDroidBegonia
Migration from previous versions is possible only with the Format Data in TWRP (all data will be erased).
Need install GAPPS (opengaps pico/nano recomended) for trCam and G-Pay.
Need Magisk with HIDE option for Google apps to pass safetynet check.

If you have any problems:
1) Install Opengapps ARM64/A11 (not flame, nik etc.)
2) Check.
3) Reinstall ROM and only then look for help, if issue not gone.

New TWRP packed with CFW4.0 tools, or take here (DON'T UPDATE IT IF YOU ARE NOT ON CFW, OTHERWISE BRICK - go to First Install Instruction).

Changelogs:

The ROM is fast!

NikGApps is working fine to me (I don't know if Google Auto and Google Assistant work because I don't use them).

Trcamera crashes when going to gallery. This fixed when I flashed the omni version of NikGApps. Turns out that the default app for gallery must be Google Photos (AOSP Gallery not working for trcamera)

I don't know about the charging... It says it's it's slowly charging even if I'm using the original fast charger of my phone.

This ROM is awesome nonetheless and thank you devs for keeping up the good work!

Hi all, anyone using this as their daily driver? Keen to hear how is going. Thanks
I've been using this for quite a while now...
mostly stable in everything. Both the Cameras are fine. All features functional. Charging and battery performance all good. The pixel launcher feels buggy with the recents tray so using the crdoid home app. Pretty good.

The assistant is working fine with full functional voice recognition. But changing the device fingerprint to something else creates a problem with Ok google because The assistant 2.0 or later gets installed and something happens. ( I haven't used android auto too so no comment).
I also flashed nikgapps full package and everything is fine.
The slow charging problem that u have is not happening with me. What happens is that at the starting it shows charging slowly. Then after a few seconds or a minute it starts charging rapidly.

You mentioned "both the cameras are fine", do you mean the rear and front camera?

Oh, no no. I meant trCam and AnXcam app...both are working pretty fine so far. My rear and front cam works fine anyways. I have the old device. I am not on the new one.. I think I know what ur trying to say. Ur front cam probably doesn't work ri8? I'm pretty sure in most of the threads people said that the new device kernel hasn't been released and new cam isn't responding in many roms because of that. Honestly i don't think there's any workaround for that unless the kernel is officially released.
