Can anyone suggest a way to install gapps without TWRP? Since some of us get the inverted TWRP touchscreen making it impossible to flash gapps.

For TWRP make sure your phone is fully charged and then switch to a USB mouse on an OTG cable then you can control TWRP. For GAPPS, try NANO and then you can load whatever Google apps you need via the Play Store.

Okay so I managed to do a very unsupported thing and have it still somehow boot. I upgraded to crdroid RQ1A.210205.004 (using the previous separate IMG files download as they were newer and I was wondering what difference if any they had over the regular 7.3 that was dated a day earlier? are they just newer builds or just essentially duplicates, or they were not really supposed to be public? anyways,) from my existing AICP 10 install.

I just dirty flashed the ROM only, waited for it to boot up and then to my amazement it did! I then installed the 11 opengapps as everything was crashing but the only thing is that essentially all google apps were broken requiring a reinstall of them (regular app data wipe didn't help and the play store works fine so I just did that) to not just close out when launching them.

is this fixable or it's a lost cause? lol. Thanks for this ROM, it's come a long way since I tried your first builds, this is actually usable and not just a black hole for google apps

No version of GAPPS that I can find will flash and boot. Which version do you recommend using? I usually use OpenGAPPs but they don't have android 11 up at this time.

Much appreciated! I was looking on the Open Gapps Sourceforge page but I must've skipped over the TEST builds unintentionally.

I Have a Moto G Power XT2041-4 on Verizon. Why is that my mobile network is all wonky on the 11 Roms? Cannot send or receive MMS. Mobile data turns off when trying to send myself an MMS. Then turns right back on after trying to send and tells me it was unsuccessful. Mobile data turns itself on and off every few seconds. If i'm on a phone call mobile data icon stays on but still no data. There is absolutely no APN options for me on 11. I've tried flashing the stock modem. Erase carrier. Resets. I have none of these issues with any of the 10 Roms.

I am using the Superior version of the Android 11 OS on XT2041-4 on Verizon and I have not experienced any of these issues. I went with Superior because I was unable to load GAPPS on CRDroid and have found Superior to be ... superior.

You provide me with no logs, any technical data and what version of the ROM you were using. Therefore I cannot help you with your situation.

    Hi,
    twrp-3.5.0-0-rav-sofia.img it's perfect. (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recovery-unofficial-twrp-3-5-0.4155041)
    Boot your phone into fastboot.
    fastboot boot twrp-3.5.0-0-rav-sofia.img and install it (Advanced / Install TWRP App) that'all.

    Hi,
    often 2 versions proposed :
    -Vanilla without GAPPS ex: crDroidAndroid-11.0-20220414-sofiar-v7.17-vanilla.zip
    -With GAPPS (larger size) ex: crDroidAndroid-11.0-20220322-sofiar-v7.16-Gapps.zip
    As for coming from a Stock ROM it is not necessary.
    Don't forget a 'Format Data' with TWRP before install and 'Wipe Cache/Dalvik' before reboot system. This is what I do...(I'm far from an expert, but it works).

    On the existing ROM disable any lock,
    Try to boot under fastboot and run command "fastboot erase userdata".
    Good luck.

    I don't remember what the exact errors were, but I did have a number of them. I took the ostrich approach and ignored the errors... and the phone booted fine.

    You made me laugh! :)

    Ok, I did that and to my surprise - it booted fine! Working on passing safety net with Magisk now. I really appreciate your help and hope this convo helps others going forward. Thank you!

    Thank you for the reply. I see this is for the "Lenovo Moto G Stylus", yet this thread is for the "Moto G Power" (which is what I have). I'm cautious when flashing ROMs, so just want to double-check....
    Yes, it works for the Moto G Power as well. The OP's link was also for the Stylus; the same question was asked and answered in post #4. I have the XT2041-4 and have run the 7.4 and 7.5 ROMs from the download page I referenced. 7.5 has been my daily driver for a while now, and haven't experienced any issues.

    Ok so I am so frustrated with this Moto G power , If anyone can please tell me what I am doing wrong...I have rooted and ran mutliple custome roms since back in the Jelly bean days but I have always been able to do all the fundamentals of owning root and making the most of my phone.. You guys have always been helpful . SO when i attempt flash a custom rom through adb folder ( because I think you cannot flash custom roms with twrp at all) attemtp to follow your instructions to the T
    but every time after install of custom , and thats any custom rom i try to boot it up for first time , prior to re-twrping, adding gapps, or magisk rooting and it literally just stays on the new rom animation for hours until i give up and I have to rescue it with lenovo'S rescue tool . Any help would be awesome ?
    I also had the same problem. You will get the ROM animation forever if you are already on Android 11. You must go back to Android 10 in order for CrDroid to boot properly. Just follow the instructions:

    Flashing:
    1. Extract the zip and open a shell with ADB and fastboot.
    2. Reboot your device into fastbootd mode.
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    3. Flash boot, system, product, and vbmeta.
    Code:
    fastboot set_active a
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash product product.img
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    4. Wipe userdata.
    Code:
    fastboot -w

    I used the file:

    CrDroid-v7.6-20210519-Sofiar-Gapps-IMG.zip

    Gapps are included in this file.

    Thanks to everybody that helped me out. I hope this helps someone else.

    Here's what worked for me on 2041-4 using a gnu-linux box (there were some permissions gotchas):
    0. power up a new out-of-the-box moto g power 2041-4. Follow prompts. Motorola Software Update will automatically download a system update and prompt reboot, after which Motorola Software Update will once again automatically download a system update and prompt reboot.

    1. become developer, enable usb debugging and OEM unlocking; power off, start fastboot mode (hold volume down and power buttons), and connect phone to (linux) box with usb C cable.

    2. visit https://accounts.motorola.com/ and follow instructions to unlock bootloader. Reboot and make sure to enter set up a security pattern, become developer, and enable usb debugging. Motorola Software Update will download and install system update (in my case QPMS30.80-51-8). Reboot to complete installation.

    3. (This step #3 will provide a backup of the stock system; skip step #3 if you don’t want such a backup.)
    a. Power off and restart fastboot mode.
    [email protected]:~$ fastboot boot /path-to/twrp.img
    (in my case twrp-3.5.0-0-rav-sofia.img).
    b. Unlock phone’s TWRP screen with your pattern, then backup the Data partition; Super partition; and the rest of the partitions; separately in three backups.
    c. reboot and move the TWRP folder from internal storage to a removable sdcard.

    Note 1: on my device, there were two Super partitions listed: Super (9312 MB) and Super (System, Product, Vendor) (9312 MB); I just backed up the former.
    Note 2: you must backup the Super partition to internal storage, it will fail if backed up directly to an external sdcard!!

    4. Enter fastbootd mode as follows:
    a. enter fastboot mode (with power off, hold volume down and power buttons)
    b. choose ‘recovery mode’ from fastboot menu, press power button to choose.
    Note: the recovery screen displays an android icon with a red warning triangle and the text “No command”. This is not an error!
    c. hold power button 3 seconds then vol up 2 or 3 seconds then release
    d. you see a menu: select enter fastboot with volume keys and power button
    e. you see a screen with “fastbootd” in red at the top of the screen
    f. connect usb cable to computer

    5. unzip your ROM and cd /ROMdirectory
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ cd /ROMdirectory
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ fastboot set_active a
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ fastboot flash boot boot.img
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ sudo fastboot flash system system.img
    Note: the above command fails if invoked as normal user!
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ fastboot flash product product.img
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    [email protected]:/ROMdirectory$ fastboot erase userdata

    6. reboot phone & setup

    7. root
    [email protected]:~$ adb push Magisk-21.4.zip /storage/yourSDcard/
    [email protected]:~$ adb reboot bootloader
    [email protected]:~$ fastboot boot twrp-3.5.0-0-rav-sofia.img

    Now, from phone’s TWRP screen, install Magisk zip (& gapps or micro_g if you want?)

    Hope that helps!
