Just FYI, the latest version Arrow-v9.0-s2-OFFICIAL-20190410.zip caused my phone to enter boot loops, eventually running out of battery and blinking only fast red light, not even showing that it's charging in the off screen.
Took me a few days without my working phone to figure it out, and unbrick it.
Same effect whether Arrow-v9.0-s2-OFFICIAL-20190410 was downloaded and installed from TWRP, or auto-updated inside the OS, like the first time.
Eventually I downloaded and installed the prior build Arrow-v9.0-s2-OFFICIAL-20190314.zip (from Recovery Mode) to get it functional again. Luckily, all my contacts, data and apps were still there mostly unharmed.
Sadly, Arrow-v9.0-s2-OFFICIAL-20190418.zip is having the same failed boot-loop issue Arrow-v9.0-s2-OFFICIAL-20190410.zip did.
1. The built-in updater asks to download and install an update. I allow it.
2. TRWP 188.8.131.52 loads, auto-flashes it. Another reboot.
3. ArrowOS pulsating Star-Trek like logo blinks for a while.
4. "Phone is starting" appears for less than a second. Apparent crash; screen goes black. Reboot and situation repeats.
Yet again I have to Vol-Up + power to enter Recovery, from where I must copy in a last known booting version of Arrow-v9.0-s2 from March 2019, via USB to PC, and install it.
From Recovery's File Manager I also delete the faulty 500MB+ zips in /data/arrowos_updates
What's the issue? How can this be troubleshooted?
Wiping Dalvik & Cache partitions didn't help.
Not about to wipe my Data.
I did clean flash (of course except the boot) because I kept reflashing "Arrow-v9.0-s2-OFFICIAL-20181117" update after updating to newer versions as I was having problems with those. So far this is the most stable for me. I always try new releases and no boot-loops encountered so far.
Never had to do a clean flash for updating Arrow OS and everything got fine after flashing. Making a clean flash means installing again everything and I really don't want to start from the beginning. And what about future updates? Do we have to do a clean flash every time?
