I've installed this ROM. It's very stable. But still cannot install Google Chrome and some other apps. Not sure why. It said "this app is not for your device"

I need to figure out why it happens. In the meanwhile, you can use the Chrome apk, or flash a GApps package that includes Chrome out of the box.

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes I could install Google Chrome and other apps that are not available for this ROM. But cannot update them later on. You can check out this ROM's source code. I can install all apps on this ROM.

Here is the screenshot that said the app is not available for this device.

Anyways your ROM is the best ROM so far for K30 5G series. (y)

I think you need to check Safety Net and DRM status before. But I use MIUI 13 eu also cant install GG Chrome.
I passed Safetynet and DRM L1.
I updated Webview to lastest but cant find Chrome stable in GG Playstore.
I think it's not this ROM error. this bug came from GApps package.

Same here. My phone's Safety Net is fine and DRM is L1 since the new firmware for Android 12. IMO this error is from firmware. Because there are some custom ROMs like this that can install GG Chrome. I used GSI ROMs when Android 11 for my K30 5G. I flashed old MIUI firmware of stable version 12.1 and can install GG Chrome when installed GSI ROMs. The reason I have not used GSI ROMs anymore is there are some conflicts with sound.

But this ROM is very good so I install GG Chrome and some other apps that cannot be installed by downloading and installing .apk files.

I clean flash the v8.7 alongside basic flame and niksgapps but mine was stuck in the crdroid logo. I drained out my battery waiting to boot up. All the same with v8.6. When I switch back to v8.4 it boots up just fine. Im sorry im kinda noob here but do you have any tips that I should do? Also Your builds are awesome

Are you doing a clean flash? Also please only flash one GApps package, not FlameGApps and NiKGApps at the same time.
Finally, use also the latest MIUI 13 firmware.

@MugeN∞ If you flashed other ROM before, you need to format data before and after flashing this ROM. Especially after flashing this ROM and GAPPS and restart the system. And use OrangeFOX will be best recovery to flash Custom ROMs.

No Im not flashing 2 gapps at the same time. I tried each of them. I’ve clean flashed the v8.8 but unfortunately, Im still stuck in the boot animation

Im using orange fox latest. So this is exactly what I did:
Formatted my device
Flashed miui 13 firmware from your link
Flashed the v8.8
Flashed flamegapps full
Formatted my device
Then reboot

You probably need to flash the full ROM of the latest stable MIUI here. Then follow the clean flash instruction. Download the recovery type of MIUI and flash it with OrangeFOX recovery. If your phone still bootloop, you probably need to flash the fastboot type of MIUI ROM with MI flash tool. Your phone's probably been flashed other ROM that has some firmware conflict and got bootloop.

Thanks. Its booted now. I’ve rebooted to recovery after flashing the miui.
This was the process that I did:

Formatted my phone
Flashed miui 12.5 (miui 13 recovery type says file is corrupted when flashing)
Rebooted to recovery
Flashed crdroid 8.8
Flashed niksgapps omni (flamegapps full stucked in boot animation)
Wiped dalvic, cache, and data
Reboot

But I have another one minor problem. The safety net failed and its drm is L3 since maybe I flashed the miui 12.5 and not the miui 13. So I have to try and flash the miui 13 fastboot type or other miui 13 recovery type and maybe it would work now.

If you want L1, you need to flash MIUI 13. This version is just upgrade the widevine to be L1. Before that, it's L3.

It would be clean to flash fastboot type. Sometimes recovery cannot clean some firmware while in recovery mode. Especially when upgrading from version 12.5 to 13.

Thank you for the new update. The SafetyNet is now working properly. But I found some laggy in the system. For example, when I click on Youtube, it takes some time to display the newly clicked video. Not sure if it's because I dirty flash the new update over the previous one.

    I just flashed the updated 8.9 crDroid. So far nothing error happening. Feel more smooth than the previous one.

    By the way, one thing that I have noticed is quick charge is nerf. It used to be at max 2500 mAh. But now it's maxed at 1500 mAh since the new firmware rework. Not sure if it might be subjectively to my phone. Or other phones also get the same QC nerf.

    Thank you for best ROM for K30 5G anyways. (y)(y)
    I know that issue. In the meanwhile, you can use this Magisk module to fix the fast charging (choose the 30W option).

    Excuse me, what is the role of Xiaomi Firmware and Xiaomi Vendor? If it is used in China, do you need to brush both?

    请问,Xiaomi Firmware 和Xiaomi Vendor的作用是什么?在中国使用的话,需要两个都刷吗?

    From my understanding, vendor is the manufacturer of the device who creates firmware that controls the hardware of the device. In Android 8 or higher, Google dev teams separate system and firmware. And the vendor's firmware term is called vendor in short since this is directly developed by the manufacturer (vendor).

    Sometimes independent developers also build firmware for specific purposes for the device. For examples, fix some hardware bugs, run their custom ROMs and so on. Therefore the firmware term may not be developed by the vendor.

    Anybody are welcome to correct me.
