    Post Question AOSP vs MIUI based ROMs

    What I mean is does having magisk installed make it harder to do automatic updates on ArrowOS? I have rooted my phone with magisk on ArrowOS.

    Post Question AOSP vs MIUI based ROMs

    Is it straightforward to install updates for ArrowOS with Magisk root? Or will it block updates or something?

    Post Question What us the safest way to de-bloat Stock ROM?

    Thanks! Can I still install OTA updates after I debloat stock ROM and with Magisk installed? Or do I need to re-install all the debloated apps and uninstall Magisk everytime I want to do an OTA update?

    Post Question Is it safe to re lock bootloader?

    To make Netflix show up on Play Store, you not only have to pass SafetyNet but also pass Google Play certification. To do that you can simply hide Magisk from Google Play Store app. I have Xiaomi.eu custom ROM with Magisk and hid a bunch of things, SafetyNet passes and Netflix is visible on...

    Hi all, I was wondering if there is a safe way to de-bloat stock ROM? Can I remove useless system apps and can I remove ads somehow from Stock MIUI?

    Post General MIUI 12.5 Stable Xiaomi.EU (Poco F3, Mi 11x, Redmi K40)

    The "Find Device" app is using a significant amount of battery in this ROM. Is this a known issue? Any way to fix it? I tried rebooting. Let me see if the issue still exists after a reboot.

    I have hidden away the bloat completely. I don't see any major negatives with this ROM so far.

    Post Question AOSP vs MIUI based ROMs

    That is a fair point but overall I still find MIUI to be the better ROM than AOSP ROMs. I agree that MIUI has more bloat and a lot more pre-installed system apps. But I don't think it is slow at all. It is absolutely snappy and just as fast as AOSP ROMs. Battery life, I personally do not see...

    Thread How do I change build.props for only 1 app?

    I am wondering if it is possible to change build.props so that only 1 app can see this modified build.props and everything else sees the default props. Is that possible?

    I am flashing this ROM for the first time, and I am waiting for a very long time on the "MIUI" boot logo and no progress is being made. Is it stuck in a bootloop?? I am confused! Please help. Nevermind. It just took a really long time!

    Thanks for the reply! Yes I read your post on that other thread as well and it was a very good post. I feel that your observation is accurate. MIUI based ROMs seem to give us the most stability and feature set. Unfortunately AOSP ROMs have things lacking that MIUI ROMs have by default like the...

    Hey all, I have been using ArrowOS for a while now but I am a little frustrated that the camera app is not as good as the one in MIUI based ROMs and even GCam can't enable all features available in the stock camera app. And cameras are really crucial for me.

    Interestingly, I was able to fix the incoming call issue by installing a third party dialer app. You can try the simple dialer which is an ad free, open-source dialer so it is a fairly safe app to use.

    Can you explain the "copy magisk from pc and paste to phone , press install in twrp and choose magisk" part? It is not very clear? Is this a different method instead of patching the boot.img? If so, is this permanent or temporary and I need to use recovery every time to re-enable root?

    This is a brand new phone so who knows how wide spread the issue is. Of course this is the first report of it in this very new forum as well.

    How is that a hardware problem? It sounds like a software problem because after rebooting the speaker works 100% without any issues. If it is a hardware issue it should stop working even if I restart the phone. This is a classic case of crappy software that gets into a bad state and gets fixed...
