Hello! Do you have some screenshot of idle drain and active drain with this kernel?
you mean this :
zz.jpg

I'm using RROS by marks and I'm trying to tweak it to have better battery backup
it's also good but if you use any kernel (other than mark) with that rom, call records will be muted
Honestly I've tried many roms A10 A11 A12 but I always come back to RR A10
obviously 😆
Also, would you mind sharing which app you disabled / how you tweak RR to have a better battery backup? :)
i was going to make a guide on it but decided to make a rom instead so it will be less work for people.

Please post feedback about Arrow and LineageOS later.
I've tried LineageOS 18.1 with MindtheGApps, it was fluent, better than Arrow A11-which is a fine ROM- in my experience, no lags, no battery drain, safetynet passes with flashing a zip file shared in telegram channel. My only problem was it was charging slower than MIUI with the same adapter, but not unusable unlike LOS 17.

Arrow A11(GApps build) was not very smooth in my experience, but Arrow A12(GApps build) was good. It was the best custom ROM I tried, smooth, safetynet passes without flashing or tweaking anything, no battery drain, no random bugs. But I haven't used it more than a couple hours so take my advice with a grain of salt.

I've also tried Resurrection Remix latest Zhan build, touchscreen wasn't working when I flashed the latest A10 SixTeen Kernel, but with stock kernel it was fine. Safetynet passed default like ArrowOS. It was again a nice ROM but I didn't like the interface also it didn't felt as snappy as Arrow A12 so I haven't spend much time on it.

I've tried MIUI 11 A9 Global ROM too. It was snappier than MIUI 12 and I liked the UI more but battery usage was worse than both A10 and A11 MIUI ROMs.

Mind you, I'm not trying to test ROMs, just tried to find the one I like as a casual user and I was unsuccessful at the last, there is not a single ROM that I find perfect and enjoy using it.

Thank you for you feedback!
I can't use MIUI anymore.
I think I'm going to test LineageOS 18.1 as it's one of the roms that I like more and as you said that it passes safetynet with the zip from Telegram.
What rom are you using now?

I'm back on latest MIUI 12.5 Global now, not a good ROM, but battery usage is better than custom ROMs I tried and everything just works. I may move to ArrowOS 12.1 when it comes out though. I may also try another A10 custom ROM later on, but for now I choose to stick with stock.

How do you make RR A10 to look like that?
what do you mean exactly ?
smooth, no battery drain, no random bugs
those are not a criterias to judge a rom
those are a "MUST HAVE" in a rom
I've also tried Resurrection Remix latest Zhan build ... I haven't spend much time on it.
don't give feedback about a rom if you didn't spent at least 3 days on it

Any A10 ROMs you can recommend other than RR?
with customisation
MSM Extended (XQ or tribute to ...)
Ancient 4.0
nusantara 10
Superior (Phoenix)
Titanium 1.2

without
reloaded (CAF)
Mokee (based on LOS)

(on all those use true phone as default dialer to not get delayed sync with call log)
Theme / font. How do you change them in RR?
-theme is pitch black (rr tool/interface/theme/pitch black)
(accent color/font type is in the same page)
-changed the font to the one i attached (paste in "system/fonts" and choose AntipastoPro in font setting)
-for signal icons i edited systemui and framework icons :
000.jpg

if you have enough skill to add them i attached the icons

Hmm this percentage, this is from MarkOs RR with stock kernel, this is the best I can have right now in terms of battery. It's pretty good but I still think I can minimize the active drain that's why I asked ( maniac 😂)

Hmm if you're into A12, have you tried Descendant Os? It's really snappy and the battery management is pretty good for an A12 Rom (~75 per hour in idle drain, it never decrease when you re sleeping 😂)

Give it like 3 days to settle if using it

I don't remember about safety net, though

I'm to vanilla Rom and I don't use Gapps

I'll try this, except for signal icons 😅

I've installed Reloaded OS, it's pretty nice so far, I may stick with it. Thanks a lot.

Is there any A11 ROM that you find stable for ginkgo?

I'm not into A12 or 12.1, I'm into ArrowOS a little.

Flashing GApps can have big effects on performance of the ROM. ArrowOS already comes with a tested, stable GApps build, that's a plus too.

I am amazed! How can you get a 3,26% of idle drain beside using the kernel ? I could never get it past 8% and I deleted and freeze a lot of "useless" stuff 🤣
-what do you mean by beside using the kernel ?

-beside freezing and deleting ... i edited all the system apps (removed all lang and duplicate drawables ...)
so they launch faster and use less resources (less ram + less cpu = more battery)
for exp

and
02.jpg


Which version of RR do you recommend?
Zhan + sixteen or mark (i prefer Zhan because of kernel choice and Chromatix Libs)
it's pretty nice so far, I may stick with it

i think you are not stable enough to use a stable rom 😂
Flashing GApps can have big effects on performance of the ROM. ArrowOS already comes with a tested, stable GApps build, that's a plus too.
flashing gapps is not mandatory
and i suggest you don't ,unless you really really need them
