    About crDroid 6.5 based on Android 10:

    The crDroid ROM typically known as crDroid Android is a custom ROM that uses the LineageOS as its base. LineageOS base brings its own benefits, such as clean and secure code with regular security patch merges.

    crDroid is like LineageOS on steroids. Yes, it provides many more features, customizations, etc. unlike the stock LineageOS which is kind of a clean installation without much customization.

    This is an open-source project just like other custom ROMs which has 4 members namely: Neobuddy89, Firebird11, Gwiolf2u, Soubhik-Khan in the core team, and many device maintainers.

    The crDroid 6.5 is the latest version based on the recently released Android 10.
