Is there a solution to sync chrome, because every android 11 can't sync to chrome, always jumps to login, can't connect to the account

Everything works except Ambient display option in setting/lock screen (Can be turned on from Cr droid settings). Tons of customisation and every option there works.
Multy tasking is smooth and app switching is good. Device is certified and safety net passed.

Only issue is battery backup. It's not good and charging also takes a lot of time. (Said 4 hrs to full charge at ~60% and took nearly same time). Magisk module might help.

Tested on olivelite.

Hmm, strange. It works for me. Okay, I'll see what might be wrong there

This is a bug of the device tree. He writes that there is a slow charging and there is too much time left before it ends, but in fact, charging is happening as usual. Don't believe him

It actually took that long. Another user too faced same issue. Copying this app to vendor/overlay and reboot fixed it. This time it took 3 hrs from 21% to 88%.

really wanting to try it after accidentally 1/3 system brick my olive xiaomi.eu MIUI OS9 just now, are there any special notes we should know before installing? like we need to flash a higher OS firmware (10? 11?) before trying?

so the way to flash it correctly is
> recovery
> wipe data
> recovery
> wipe cache, dalvik, data, system, vendor, sdcard
> recovery
> install rom (gapps)
> recovery
> wipe dalvik
profit
WARNING for newer OS never flash magisk, install the apk and let it figure itself there...

android 11 must be very finicky if the good old ways wont work. ive tried crdroid OS6 a long time ago on my S6 and liked it more than CM/LOS OS6, hopefully ill like this more than MIUI OS9

i also wonder about the battery charging stats. normally on my phone it charges from 0 > 100% in around 3 hours in lock screen state. thats me manually killing off every service just to check my batterys capacity/health is still normal. how can it charge from 20 > 90 in 3 hours?
