Hi I have the OnePlus 9 pro running Android 12. Stock, with all updates. I have gotten fed up with the operating system resetting my choices on battery optimization and permissions. This is related to notifications. I do not receive notifications from apps unless I have both made them a battery optimization exemption, and manually given them all requested permissions. But every time I restart my phone, or if there is an update, the operating system resets all of these changes to default, effectively silencing all notifications from these apps until I manually change them again. It's upsetting enough that I have to make these changes in order to get notifications. The fact that the system resets them all of the time is just annoying. Can I disable the system resetting these changes if I root my phone only? Or is it necessary for me to install a Rom that doesn't do this to my apps? On a side note I use Nova launcher because I dislike the lack of customization from OnePlus operating system. Thank you for any advice you can give me

TL;DR: OnePlus resets my battery optimization choices and my permission choices regularly. Can I fix this If I root or is a new ROM necessary to stop this?

That's really odd that it's doing this to you. Never had this issue on any of my OP devices. Including stock OOS and custom ROM's. Which variant do you have, which firmware are you running, have you tried factory resetting then setting up your device and seeing if the issue persists?

Thank you for replying. My phone says it's Android 12 with the August 5, 2022 security patch.
Build # is LE2125_11_C.63,
Baseband version is Q_V1_P14,
kernel version is 54147-qgki-g2f286f199c5a,
Hardware version is LE2125_12.
I have not tried factory resetting yet, and if I get a new software that would happen anyway, so I suppose it's worth a shot. The phone also likes to reset some apps. Like the Twilight blue light filter app. I woke up one day to find the phone had reset the app back to default, and I had to set it up and all it's permissions up all over again. I didn't realize this wasn't normal because when I searched, I couldn't find anyone with the same problem. I just thought the battery optimization was super extreme this time around. I'll backup my favorite apps and try a reset and see if that works. Thank you again for responding.

Weird that when I woke up, Repainter reset my system theme I was using and even though it's still enabled app-side, it's disabled system-side. Now I gotta figure out why lol. I would recommend factory resetting for sure first to see if that helps at all. Make a full system/internal backup and copy it to your PC before doing so. Feel free to reach out if it worked or didn't work for you.

Thanks, I did go through that page already. Most of those menu options aren't present in the OnePlus 9 pro on Android 12, and the rest I tried but nothing changed. For example, I have my blokada app locked in the recent apps, but choosing "close all" closes it in spite of this. Just another mark against OnePlus' software.

I think you jinxed me. Repainter hasn't been working all day and the xda app won't let me login for some reason. It logs in, but still shows the key icon and none of my subscribed threads load. That's really odd that when you lock an app in recents, it still clears regardless. Which launcher are you using? When I was on OOS, I used Nova and when I locked apps in recents and hit 'clear all', said app would still remain. I didn't care to use OOS12, once I realized there was no color code theme option, I went back to OOS11 until I took the plunge to update my fw to use Nameless again.

I'm sorry! I have innate bad luck, sometimes it runs off on people. I was using the OnePlus launcher at first but after I switched to Nova it stopped happening I think. I've reset my phone now, hoping it is fixed.

I guess so! Still can't login to xda for some reason... Well that's good that so far it's working right. Sorry you had to reset your phone and everything just to get it to work again. I hate when I have to do that. Feel free to reach out again if it starts happening again.

Edit: rebooting seemed to fix the xda/repainter issues. Just sucks I lost my 10+ days uptime streak lol
