Always Have a full functional Backup. Just in case



First time installing crDroid to your N5, or coming from another ROM:
- Make sure you're running a proper working Recovery (CWM or TWRP)
- Copy GApps and crDroid zip to your internal SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Wipe system,data and cache
- Flash crDroid zip
- Flash GApps zip
- Reboot

Upgrading from earlier version of crDroid:
- Copy crDroid ZIP to your internal SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Wipe system and cache
- Flash crDroid zip
- Flash Gapps
- Reboot

Don't expect any support if you:
- are not running stock crDroid-kernel
- have installed any mods such as Xposed!
- have modified system files

Thanks to:

- Google
- LineageOS
- SlimRoms
- OmniRom
- NamelessROM
- Many others... (if you're feeling upset being out of the thanks list just send a PM )

I am unable to connect to my mobile data. This only happens to me on some ROMs based on Cyanogemod like Carbon or this one. I'm on a Spanish network. Is anyone else having the same problem?
I keep going back to AOSP base ROMs because of this.

Edit: I've changed my network provider and I'm now able to connect to my mobile data and to use this great rom! :good::)

Stuck on boot screen after installing with ClockWorkMod. Let it sit for 30+ minutes.... nothing. Tried reflashing twice. Still nothing. Any ideas?

Is there an option to access cLock app settings? AFAIK, there is just a toggle switch whether to show weather on notification drawer or not. Anyone can confirm this?
