Flashed it on crDroid 7.6 (Android 11) and no problems so far.

EDIT: Found a bug where the USB debugging and charging notifications don't disappear after disconnecting the USB cable.

Sorry I'm not on crDroid anymore, but what happened was everytime I connected the phone to my PC, the usual notifications appear (usb debugging and usb mode selection). Then when I unplugged it they wouldn't go away and they would get stuck there until I restart the phone.

    So I've been using this for about 8 days on arrow os nightly unified. Works perfectly. I see a decent improvement in battery and performance both. Cheers.
    Me too. Changed the default kernel of Descendants 11.5. The crash upon powering off device is gone. Edited: nope, it's still there, I guess it's rom issues rather than the kernel. Longer wifi hotspot duration and yet still stable. Lower temp when charging, a bit slower, but it's okay (phone shows charging rapidly). I don't know about performance, but to me, it's stable for everyday use. I haven't encountered any kernel panic resulting in random crash yet after 4 days - the definitely very worthy.

    I wanna try this in dotOS 5.1.3, but... how can I rollback to QuickSilveR if anything goes wrong???
    Backup boot and dtbo partition, before flashing kernel, in recovery, so you can easily restore stock kernel

    10 or 11 ?

    EDIT 2: alright on telegram I found the answer, a11 only. Anyway, thanks for that, will definitely try next time I'm on R.
