Thank you! Amazing rom. Crazy fast and stable. Couple things: is there anyway to disable the USB menu from opening whenever I plug the phone in? Also it seems I can't drag the Caffeine tile (and a few others) to the top for some reason. It just disappears before it reaches the top. Got it up there by filling the top section, adding it, then removing the rest.

P.S. Are there any custom kernels that work with this rom?

Liking the ROM. Great battery life. Has anyone noticed what kind of looks like screen tearing when typing? Bottom half of the screen starts jumping around everywhere. Can still type it's just odd.

Hi thanks for the ROM!
You mention pixel look and feel in the feature list, but i did not get the pixel launcher or the navbar when i installed. Am i doing something wrong? Im flashing:
1) crdroid CAF
2) Open gapps pico
3) Truesight caf kernel

After trying almost all type roms for Nexus 5. I stayed on CrDroid. This one is the what I needed. The best customizable and faster rom than others. Only annoying is developer option missing.

Keep up this rom towards!

Best Regards

    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 )
