LOS have some bugs that are corrected in RR :
1-Phone call log (you can't find your recent calls until you restart the dialer/same for adding contact)
2-legacy app scaling (old apps does not display correctly)
3-Deep sleep when BT is on
4-changing kernel to 16 will cause some camera problems

Apparently, people are coming together for official(?) support of LOS 18.1 on Gingko (see https://forum.xda-developers.com/posts/86565403).

Maybe such bugs could be reported for correction...

Altough MIUI annoys me a lot with its memory and battery optimization, it still offers a generally "bug-free" experience
:unsure:
I will try ArrowOS(A12 because it is the latest so more likely to be bug-free?)

idk why this sentence is so hard to understand tbh ...

i'm not really hype about it, LOS 18 is based on A11 and A11 has it's own bullsh*t ...
A12 = A11+monet theme and new storage policy
A13 is already in the corner i saw most devs jumping on it ...
Maybe such bugs could be reported for correction...
I reported since the 1st A10 builds, and D.jocker knows about them
call log is from the AOSP10 source,and it's fixed in A11
scaling for old apps is related to framework costumization and lineage team does not want to add any ...
everything is fixed on RR so i'm gonna keep using it
i added some few things like colored icons on notification :

i restored smart pixel and missing icons on some menu
trying to add app sidebar :
022.jpg

maybe with some support i'm gonna release a public build soon ...

Do you think A13 will solve the majority of 11/12 issues? :unsure:
I mean they have to ...
A11 imo was like a middle version between A10 and 12, it didn't get that much care and most devs already dropped 11 for 12 (if not13)
A12 was rushed and not very clean ...
Wow, that is some news. I gather this will be A10/RROS based, right?
Yes, RRos A10
Please tell me what kind of support you're seeking
basically donations, i don't have that much time to make progress, so if i have enough support that will help the devlopment for sure ...
nice setup, mine is a lot simpler... 😎

What was your experience like with MIUI?
-------------->"Latest doesn't always mean better"<--------------​

I don't think latest always mean better. A more recent build may be less battery friendly but it also may have less bugs, which I would care about more. I'd be happy to hear about your experiences if you've tried all three versions of ArrowOS.

Other then being more resource hungry, what problems have you experienced with A11 on ginkgo?

My hands aren't much good for anything else
let's say you want to go back
-on 3 buttons you have to move your finger to the exact button and press it
-on full screen gesture you can go back from anywhere on the screen with a swipe from any edge
"About phone" says its v8.7.0 by maintainer DqrKn3Zz
Strange, only "Whyred" and an old build of "MARKos" have that SLIM RECENT that cover the statusbar
What was your experience like with MIUI?
if you don't like your device and want to torture it use miui
A more recent build may have less bugs
:unsure: :unsure:

Arrow 10 : good but have call log/sync contact bug + legacy app scaling + no customization
Arrow 11 : worst than Arrow 10 + frame drops + app scaling + no customization
Arrow 12 : worst than Arrow 11
what problems have you experienced with A11 on ginkgo?
-Ext SDcard not work properly (on some builds it's not even detected) (selinux crap)
-Frame drops when playing HD videos/playing games
-Media provider generate huge cache if you have lot of files on internal storage
-Long boot time
-Use more RAM
-Some apps don't use/detect dark mode
-There is no kernel that use 300MHz for low tasks (CPU Always 800 or even more)
-app scaling
-Xposed framework not stable (gravitybox/Xposed edge ...)
-Call records sometimes muted or absent
-When you disable mobile data --> no option to hide the "X" on statusbar
-Poor customization overall ...
...
to the point i don't want to test any A11 anymore

People say this kind of things about MIUI-and mostly not giving any detail- but I, as a noob, haven't notice any bugs. I just don't like the RAM and power management of it. I would like to know what problems/bugs have you noticed exactly.

I definitely wouldn't notice most of them, or even I did, I'd probably be more prone to think that they're because of something I did or because of hardware. Very valuable information you're sharing, thanks a lot.

Built in ADS ?
Bloatwares ?
you didn't see that ?
Apps like "security" who is sending your data to china 24/7 (can't be removed/stopped/freezed) that split yor internet speed with you
Updates that does nothing but nerf performance and camera quality
...
...
S**tUI is a hell on any device, not only ginkgo ...

Tried it, no good. Xiaomi devices (I have 3 different ones, luckily all rooted/custom) are the worst in terms of tapping insanity. Never had such problems with Samsungs, LGs or ZTEs.

Oh, that, that was a Magisk module -- if memory serves...

I see. I for one, totally take your word for it, being that I absolutely hate to be a guinea pig for UI development.

For the interested, I tried latest RR markos build. There was a small problem with host files that can be easily solved, other than that it was a good ROM, smooth, no annoying bugs. But the amount of customization options annoyed me, I wanted to use a more 'clean' ROM.
So then I tried latest LineageOS 17.1 build. There was a slow charging problem, other than that it was a very nice ROM but the slow charging made the ROM unusable for me.
I then tried stock A10 MIUI 12. It was okey. No bugs or anything but the MIUI way of ram and battery management is annoying.
Now I'm on A11 MIUI 12.5. It is worse than A10. Not smooth. I'll propably try ArrowOS and and LineageOS 18.1 builds next.

Please post feedback about Arrow and LineageOS later.

i'm using this (i'm a battery maniac, i even compared different builds in the same kernels 😂)
if you want to use their last A10 build it's here (use more than 300MHz for low tasks)
Hello! Do you have some screenshot of idle drain and active drain with this kernel?

I'm using RROS by marks and I'm trying to tweak it to have better battery backup

Honestly I've tried many roms A10 A11 A12 but I always come back to RR A10

Also, would you mind sharing which app you disabled / how you tweak RR to have a better battery backup? :)
