Thanks for your work.
Unable to install netflix on Google playstore: Your device is not compatible with this version netflix.

It's most likely due to permissive kernel, next release should be enforcing, selinux was not ready.

The only bug I've found so far is the alarm NOT powering on the device before ringing.

Are you sure your alarm app has permission to wake up the the device? Check in settings.

When I receive a call, it does not ring in the headset bluetooth or in the speaker.

Uhh, so is it completely silent? Does other sounds work? Any logs?

I'm now using your LineageOS 17 with 4.4 kernel. Can I dirty flash this ROM? My user data is not encrypted.
You don't need to format everything, but better clear system/vendor/data and cache. They're different roms with different features and you may have weird bugs after dirty flashing.
Use Migrate (search on Xda) or Swift Backup (Google Store) to easily backup and restore all of you apps and app datas ;)

    Guys, new version of crDroid 6.4 is pushed via OTA.
    Unfortunately, WiFi hotspot is broken because of some LOS deps, we are working on a fix.

    I'm working on new kernel which will fix random yt stops, whatsapp hangups, speaker channel and have faster screen wakeup so stay tuned.

    will this rom be supported at all? will it end on one issue. I am thinking about uploading on mi5, because I also use it on mi9 and it is great, but if there is no support, I quit

    Huh :confused:
    It is your choice what ROM you are using and also don't expect 4 years old device to be fully bugless. Today new release will be pushed fyi.
