It's easy to update and maintain root without needing to use the pc.I'm seeing an update to crDroid 7.11, October 11, 2021, 1.1GB in Settings> Updates. Is this an update, such as a security patch, that can be applied safely to my device without affecting files, apps, and settings? Or is, this a new an update that would reimage my phone? Also, is it advisable to unroot and/or remove Magisk prior to applying an update? (I ask because this was a problem for my previous OnePlus 2 phone running LineageOS.
If you're worried about it then don't use that feature I don't use always on display, I use kinScreen.
I myself haven't had any issues with the ROM If you install the ROM again and it still gives you problems, get a copy of the logcat and send it to the developer, he will most likely be able to tell you what's causing the problem and how to fix it.I will try it, thank you . I had to switch to a different rom for now. Had to go to work. This rom would black the screen out and not allow the screen to come back on unless I forced reboot. I will try it again and maybe see what is causing it. Hopefully I find it, I love this rom and would def like to keep using it.
Yeah that's strange. I have two fingerprints registered on my phone, but I haven't had any issues at allI narrowed it down the fingerprint scanner. It works flawlessly when I don't have a print registered. As soon as I register one, the screen will go black after locking the phone twice. If I delete the fingerprint, it will go back to normal, never blacking out the screen on unlocking . So I'm going to reflash my original persist.img and see if it helps.
Can anyone post a link or attach the boot.img to a post to download. I cannot get to my pc right now and am on the road and root is working. PleaseI was looking for a method that didn't involve TWRP since I too came across the same issues you encountered. I actually just finished rooting crDroid a few minutes ago. Here were my steps:
These are the steps I performed, gleaned from the Magisk github's install.html#magisk-in-recovery page and also @gwolfu at https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...droid-v7-10-13-sep-2021.4292267/post-85192599
- Grab a copy of payload-dumper-go (I used payload-dumper-go_1.2.0_linux_amd64.tar.gz)
- Make it executable and install golang if you haven't already
- Unzip crDroidAndroid-11.0-20210927-hotdogg-v7.10.zip
- Type: ./payload-dumper-go crDroidAndroid-11.0-20210927-hotdogg-v7.10/payload.bin
- Copy the boot.img file from new folder to your phone
- Also copy Magisk-v23.0.apk to your phone and install it
- Open the Magisk app and and tap Magisk > Install
- Choose Select and Patch a File (should be the only option you can choose at the moment)
- Browse to and choose the boot.img file
- Once patched, copy the resulting magisk patched .img file back to your computer
- Restart your phone into fastboot mode
- Then flash with: fastboot flash boot /path/to/your/magisk_patched.img file
- You may also want to flash the other boot; for example, in my case boot_a was flashed, so I then typed: sudo ./fastboot flash boot_b ~/Downloads/magisk_patched-23000_dCYIE.img
- Then restart your phone!
I will try. Thank you
Still not fixed. But that issue is only on the main camera. So if you want to record a video with the main camera just leave it in picture mode and hold down the shutter button. The front video records fine though. Other camera apps work just fine on the main camera. Like "Open Camera" and any other camera app from the Play store.Where do things currently stand with it? The OP mentions needing to hold to record video and the actual video tab crashing, has that been fixed by now? Not sure if I want to wait for an A12 version to flash or just flash it now. Doesn't seem to be too many options for the phone model either way.

I was looking for a method that didn't involve TWRP since I too came across the same issues you encountered. I actually just finished rooting crDroid a few minutes ago. Here were my steps:Super happy to see some development on hotdogg again, and one of my favorite ROMs no less. I just hope to get regular updates unlike everything else (besides Carbon 8.0, not even 9.0), but am super happy to find everything working, unlike some of the one off ROM builds on here. So far, no problem (other than not realizing Gapps weren't included and Magisk causing softbricks if installed before setup). Everything tested so far is working and has the battery life I expect from crDroid.
So the easiest way to install magisk and (I did it on this ROM) is to rename magisk.apk to magisk.zip and install that through TWRP. On this ROM, you MUST do it after setup or risk a potential soft-brick.
