TWRP/SHRP doesn't support A12 yet, so there's no way to decrypt data.Unofficial LineageOS 18, that I have tested, failed to update and I have returned to CRDroid. I have installed CRDroid 8.5 and Nikgapps core. System started OK and behaves normally. SHRP has no acces to data, so it doesn't fully support this rom. Will OS with gapps survive update?
Edit: just have noticed, that wi-fi 5GHz doesn't work. But I don't remember if there were wi-fi problems on other roms or this is a new thing due crDroid.
I have checked 5GHZ WiFi a bit more with WiFiAnalyzer:
On crDroid 8.5 channels 149-177 don't work at all. Channels 36-64 and 100-144 sometimes shows activity for a moment, but then stop working.
On LineageOS 18 channels 149-177 don't work, but 36-64 and 100-144 seems to be OK.
On MIUI 12.5.5 EEA all works.
Update is simple -- you flash new ROM and new version of gapps after it from the recovery mode. All user data remain intact and the system will work just fine after the update.
Wifi 5ghz works fine in my case. Some channels can be restricted by regulatory domain, i.e. the country you are from.
In my case, everything works well.Is anything else not working on crdroid latest rom. I am a newbie and haven't rooted or unlocked the boot loader of a phone. So I am scared if I do anything wrong. I searched on the internet and found that this rom works best on redmi 9 prime. I have a few questions..
Could you please refer me to some good guides and what recovery should I use?
I found this video but it is for crdroid 6.1. Are the instructions still the same?
As some people on this forum are saying that the phone's performance is sluggish with this rom, is it still there or the performance is now fine?
Use SHRP -- it officially supports Redmi9.

There are some posts on how to root the Xiaomi Redmi 9 (Galahad/Lancelot) phone, but since they have lots of "don't know" phrases (or files of unknown origin), I've managed to do the whole process from scratch. Lancelot or Galahad Basically...
