crDroid is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device also attempting to bringing many of the best features existent today


Features:
https://github.com/crdroidandroid/crdroid_features/blob/11.0/README.mkdn

Flashing Instructions:

Pre-installation:

I have managed to get kernel 4.4 working on lithium, all features are working including proximity sensor. This has FBE (file based encryption) enabled, which is easier to work with and use than traditional FDE (full disk encryption) in previous Android versions. Because of this change, you MUST use the FBE enabled TWRP recovery linked above in order to access your files in recovery mode. In case you missed it, here is the link again:

FBE enabled TWRP: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=7161016148664782081

If you are coming from a 3.18 based ROM (which you probably will be) you MUST format your internal storage directly after flashing the ROM. Backup anything important first.

Sources:
ROM: https://github.com/crdroidandroid

Source code related to the 4.4 bringup (including kernel source, device trees and HALs) are available here:

Very special thanks to @xNombre who did the original work porting 4.4 to gemini.

I'm getting an error from google saying my device security has been weakened sue to selinux not being enforced. View attachment 5384327
Yeah, you get the message (which is not an error from Google, but actually the useless trust interface from LineageOS) because just as it says, SELinux is not enforcing. Whether it weakens your security or not is up for debate, which I'm not going to get into here. I will eventually get it in enforcing mode. Just get your software from the play store and don't install apks from sketchy sites and it's not a problem.

I see, thank you for the explanation :)

Edit: thanks again for the fantastic ROM. It's so nice to instill new life in this beautiful device.

New build is up with some device specific fixes. Get it from download link in the first post.
• Revised auto brightness setup
• WiFi display (screen cast) now working
• Kernel upstreamed to 4.4.280
• Vendor updated to LA.UM.9.6.2.r1-04200-89xx.0

I don't have an OTG cable because I have no need for one. The chances of me fixing that without logs is slim to none. So get me some logs innit ;)

In English:

Sorry, I don't speak English, I'm using Google Translator...

I made a point of sharing the problems...
- when connecting to the computer, the USB connection options don't appear, I have to look in the device.
- Gesture commands are not working, I installed a third-party application to use it.
- Strengths:

So I moved to this from a stock rom. Now the battery is draining fast and the back of the phone is getting hot. Is anyone else having these issues?
