this is crDroid for LG Nexus 5

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!

When I first started using crDroid on 7.1.2 I chose it because all of the Oreo ROMs besides First Ever ROM required modification to the partitions through *nix in order to install because there was no space for GApps.

Is it possible to flash this on the Nexus 5 without those modifications?

Can one of you tell me if this will install on the Nexus 5 without having to change the partitions? All the other Oreo ROMs were too large to be able to flash GApps.

Yeah this doesn't work on the Nexus 5. The system partition is too small to flash the GApps (yes, including the smallest one). You have to increase the partition through ADB to flash the GApps + ROM.

I thought these were tested on the actual device before released. Do you have the ability to emulate these other phones and just port the ROM over without a real-world test or something?

Anyways I successfully flashed ROM and GApps after all this. I tried booting to system and it was stuck on first boot for about 10-12 minutes. I wiped everything and flashed all over again.. It's been sitting here on the boot animation for the past 20 minutes. I have to give up on this and see if anyone who works on this ROM could assist in figuring out the issue.

Tried again, 35 minute boot. No luck.

Thanks for your works. However, I found two bugs need improve. Firstly, battery capacity cannot show inside battery icon in crDroid. Secondly, Cannot view storage, always loading, loading and loading. Anyway, How can I set Apps which I donn't want them run in background. good job and thanks again.

They don't seem to be active in any way. No replies here and won't accept Google+ group requests. I think the project may be dead.
