No problems whatsoever today. Used GPS perfectly. ROM is fluid and matches performance of vanilla LOS.

The standard customisation options in crDroid are perfect and I'm enjoying the auto night light.

Looking forward to using many more from you Simon. Thank you

Bug!

Settings don't appear to stick.

Hadn't noticed this, but I changed User Interface settings and had a nice Amoled dark style, but if I come out of the settings, close recents and go back to settings, it's back to default.

Can you look into this?

Im not able to reproduce this.
I have also set the Amoled dark style in settings, but it keeps the settings after closing.
Maybe try another clean flash or a simple reboot.

I also have to apologize: NFC is working as I found out. After a reboot it worked without problems.

But I will also make another clean flash just for the try of reproducing your issue

I had this problem on initial setup, but I didn't think anything of it. As @moozer said, a reboot fixed it.

Mine ran out in 4 hours sleeping plus 1 hour gaming. I have naptime and greenify installed. I guess I will just bring a charger to work lol. Doesn't bother me.

Just use Naptime in it's own (or Greenify) as other similar apps will conflict if used together.

I'm just using Naptime and got this so far with 4G on for 6 hours

I had very good battery life today so it must have been yesterday's fault. Naptime helps with idle battery life and greenify "sleeps" apps when the screen is on I thought.

2 screens:

1 at 100 % at bedtime just unplugged
1 at 96% at wake time

7 hours idle

Going to do a full charge and will go to 15% as @SnowFuhrer has done to compare

Looking good so far

    Sorry for the lack of support for this ROM.
    Have been busy with some real-life stuff in the last weeks.
    Will continue with new builds in the next weeks.
