Pre 20Dec2021 Update:ROM has been excellent so far. It was also the only ROM that had good enough instructions for me as a noob to install without complications.
Runs smooth and works even better than the stock MIUI ROM imo. I've been using it for over a month now. It has not crashed or had any bugs yet.
Edit: please make the Night Light independent of GPS-Services. Or make it so it doesn't need constant GPS access. Maybe I should voice this on the crdroid github though.
So after the 20Dec2021 update, I would rethink my review. I saw the update and decided to update later because the changelog only mentioned: "SafetyNet passes by default". I don't need that because I made it pass. Well, after having my battery somehow drained by that not installed update and not getting 3-4 days but only 1 day of usage out of my phone, I decided to update.
Post 20Dec2021 Update:
SafetyNet, that passed because of my modifications now doesn't pass the Check anymore. Thanks for nothing. Also the update shipped a Browser, Calculator, Calendar, Camera, Clock, Contacts and Messaging. Did I ask for Bloatware? That certainly is NOT in the changelog. I am pretty pissed off, because after not having to tinker with my phone for months, I now have to connect it to adb again to remove the bloatware that shipped with this update.
Maybe the Browser could be seen as necessary if you didn't flash GApps, but it's definetly not necessary to ship with an update. "SafetyNet now passes by default"? It doesn't pass on my device anymore even though it passed Pre Update :I
If another update comes with Bloatware like this I will try to install another custom ROM.
I don't think this ROM is bad. It's actually perfect! I have never had such a pleasant experience with a smartphone before. It just kinda sucks that this not installed update drains the battery somehow and ships with Bloatware.
Please update your changelog. Thank you for maintaining the ROM [:
Edit: I attached an screenshot of the battery drain. 4 days of battery life post-update vs 1 day of battery life pre-update.
