I really can't believe my luck. I picked up an MI A3 as a cheap replacement for a damaged MI A1, and during the process of setting up TWRP and getting full control of the device, this ROM gets released.

I need a lightweight secure system, and from what I've tested so far, this is absolutely the right base for me.

Thankyou to @zlewchan and all at crdroid who worked on the ROM.

Not sure if I did something wrong, but using the recommended nikgapps, the clock app would crash every time, and google play/services would not connect (datetime was set correctly, certificates on websites like youtube worked just fine).

Factory-reset, followed by installing bitgapps https://www.pling.com/p/1462970/ - Build 12.0.0.R45 got the clock and all google services/sync working.

This really is a nice clean environment, just 19 apps installed in the base image, before gapps are added. Tested camera in photo/video, FMRadio is pre-installed and works great, tested compass, contact+calendar sync, and a bunch of 3rd party apps (element, signal, whatsapp.....).

Everything seems to work really well so far, and very fast+snappy to use.

As I mentioned about in telegram group, the rom is very rich, but It has a bug with the location. Some apps that use location doesn't work, as the popdiary app and the zepp fit. Does anyone else has noticed the same?

I've just tested Strava (fitness tracker/GPS-logger) and yeah it's not got GPS at all.
I'm showing as being somewhere in Europe, which is true, but not very accurate.

I don't have telegram, so instead I'm attaching log of strava attempting to use GPS here. I've checked the log to ensure there's no identifying info (MAC, UID, telno, name, etc) in there.

In this test, I switched to the strava app, with only coarse location configured (GPS-only) and press the "start" button multiple times, to no effect. I've also checked to ensure that the app has permission to access location prior to running the test.

Hmm, for some reason XDA forum silently fails attachments.
Next plan - quote the interesting bit in the logs.

Hello, If you're using GMS, please try to grant location permission to Play Services.

Yep I'm using GMS, but attempting to grant location access to google play services doesn't work unfortunately.

Instead the permissions part of the settings app points out that play services is a provider of location services, rather than a client.

That requestor prompts the user to the "location" section of the settings app, which shows strava as a user of location "when the app is open", but not much else that's helpful.

I did have that issue, see above.

Fixed by factory reset and install bitgapps instead.
https://www.pling.com/p/1462970/ - Build 12.0.0.R45 got all google services/sync working

Did you solve the location problem installing this gapps file? Because I have location problems in two apps.

I've not found a way to fix GPS yet no. Tried the obvious things like installing gps.conf to /etc, and adding a permissions file to /etc/permissions, but no joy.
Really I think we just await a new build. i'm using this rom daily and can't fault anything else about it, just there's no ability to use "coarse location" using gps.
