crDroid 4.1 on OnePlus 5T has been out for quite a while now on xda, thanks to the developer gwolfu.

If you are interested in installing crDroid 4.1 on OnePlus 5T, then you’re absolutely in the right place.

OnePlus 5T was released shortly after the release of the OnePlus 5, boasting a new and improved 18:9 display, a set of new cameras, but everything else about the two phones was identical. The phone was released for the same price tag as the OnePlus 5 in some regions, which led people in purchasing the latter since it was an obvious choice. The 5T carries in it the Snapdragon 835, 8 gigabytes of RAM, 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage, and a flagship build and design. On top of that, OnePlus’ great software based on Android Oreo has amazing optimizations for battery life and performance.

crDroid 4.1 is based off of the latest Android 8.1 Oreo, and this means it has all of its design queues, bells and whistles. The developer also made the ROM Viper4Android ready, which is one heck of an audio equalizer which can be installed via TWRP recovery. Moreover, the ROM has fluid performance, with great battery backup. It also has the OnePlus specific options like off-screen gestures, dash charging, and the options to change the alert slider toggles.
