  • Some of your steps are wrong (wipe system - unavailable in any custom recovery, lack of any format data if you come from stock MIUI etc)[email protected] pointed you to the right, complete procedure to flash a custom ROM....how this did not answered to your questions?!?
    which is what exactly? you asked any extra steps? if you read guide I posted link to and compared with steps you are posted, you will have answer to your question


    sorry, maybe i should have been more clear.

    the steps i am mentioning (cause i am already in arrow os now) are for dirty install updates.

    updates which include new rom, new gapps, new "recovery rom" (for vendor + firmware).

    Even though I recently switched to the Gapps version of this rom, I still can't seem to get the quick access wallet to appear on the power menu! Even though I have the setting enabled in settings > gestures > power menu > cards and passes.

    Does anyone have any suggestions why this might not be working for me.

    Could someone check system/product/priv-app and tell me if they have quick access wallet apk in there (I don't).

    Hey Sir! Thank you for this wonderful ROM. Just wanted to suggest adding "press to unlock" settings for fingerprint. It has settings like that in stock MIUI ROM.

    @ganesh varma Just wanted to say thank you for building and maintaining this! I have been using this ROM for some days now (Vanilla build + microG) and are very impressed. It is fast, battery efficient, stable - very good work indeed.

    That's not the latest version. The latest version can be found in the same website you posted. It is now called the recovery ROM and comes with the latest FW (12.0.7) and vendor. Get the appropriate one for your device here.

    How do you know that no extracted vendor zips are provided anymore? I couldn't find any information regarding this. And is it necessary to update vendor? I thought it is contained in ArrowOS by now.

    Is it really possible when upgrading from one ArrowOS version to another to flash the Recovery ROM (which is a full MIUI ROM afaik) in between without losing/breaking /data? What are the proper steps for an OS update + firmware and vendor upgrade? Do I have to remove pin/pattern or backup and restore anything or is it just:
    1. Boot to recovery
    2. Flash Recovery ROM <- overwrites system, firmware, vendor
    3. Reboot to recovery? Is this required/recommended?
    4. Flash ArrowOS OTA zip <- overwrites system (and vendor? Is it contained in the OS?)
    5. (Optionally) flash kernel and magisk
    6. Wipe cache and dalvik
    7. Reboot to system
    Thanks for any input on this.

    The latest ArrowOS uses blobs from the latest release of MIUI. Further, the OP specifically states to use the latest firmware. Hence, there is merit to using the latest firmware.

    The recovery ROM contains both the firmware and the vendor. Should ArrowOS contain the vendor image, it will overwrite any vendor image and no harm is done.

    Also, bear in mind the person asking for instructions was pondering a clean flash. Hence, I gave him the aforementioned instructions.

    If you are already on ArrowOS, simply flash the latest firmware + latest nightly. Magisk and the others are optional if you use root.

    Mission Impossible in all custom ROMs !

    1. Safetynet check the bootloader status and will automatically fail if magisk is not installed (Magisk Hide ON must be applied for this) !

    2. Furthermore, now you have to install the safetynet-fix module to make your banking apps working !

    3. Finally, you must hide Magisk Manager.apk with a random name too (Magisk Settings)

    To everyone, please STOP this misconception about having the need to flash magisk in order to pass safety net. Do read the OP I've clearly mentioned there's no need of a magisk or modules for safety net. Device is certified and passes safety net out of the box without need of any modifications.

    By improper usage of magisk and mods you're further complicating and breaking things when they're completely unnecessary which end up causing unrelated issues which you end up calling them rom source bugs ¯\(◉‿◉)/¯

    P.S : I'm not against magisk, but when you do prefer using modifications do ask yourself on your needs and if you're able to rectify the issues it might generate. Isolate yourself from magisk or any form of modifications to recheck and confirm the issue before making a bug report.

    Please, can you explain how use NFC to pay?
    I've tried the ROM (with and without install Magisk). In both cases GPay installs fine, then no issues to add bank cards but when I try to pay in a store, the dataphone refuses to operate. No issues with MIUI.
    Thanks

    i think the nfc package used here is a standard one like many other roms around. the package must be nxp/nq compliant !

    if you can decompile nfc.apk check if you have this in AndroidManifest.xml

    com.nxp.nfc.nq

    . The true package that must be used is NqNfcNci not the standard one NfcNci

    . the symlinked (proprietary) library must be :
    libsn100nfc_nci_jni.so ... and not the standard one libnfc_nci_jni.so

    No custom rom uses these files except xiaomi.eu !

      Ganesh, since you're here, any information on the TWRP encryption issue after the June 9 build?
      I'm yet in the process of figuring it out. I'm completely caught off-guard by this weird issue all of a sudden as there has been literally no changes been made to the device sources nor the rom source so at this point i'm not sure what's even causing it. I've also decompiled the twrp and went through its contents but everything looks fine and dandy in there.

      For now i would suggest to make use of Arrow recovery to meet the needs of OTA updates etc.

      I have tried Migrate since my phone was rooted but had issues restoring the backup. The phone got into a bootloop, so I have been forced to set everything back up from scratch again
      Not good! I haven't tried Migrate yet, it was just presented to me as an option for the task at hands, so either someone comes up with a success story, or I will have to just try all three backup methods and find out for myself if any of these is going to work.

      Just now, I installed TWRP 3.5.2_10-2 (Brigudav) on my Poco X3 NFC ... then I flashed "Disable_DM-Verity_ForceEncrypt" ... and I have no issues with the TWRP reading files unencrypted.
      Why would TWRP (any version, same as any version of OrangeFox) have any issues if you have an unencypted device???

      This whole story is about decrypting the device from recovery if your device is encrypted.

      And yes, it is a very bad idea and NOT recommended at all to use an unencrypted device, because as said before, if you lose your phone and you have any sensitive or personal data on it, you are done!

      If you have unencrypted your device because someone told you that this is the solution for the current problems with device decryption on A11 + OSS vendor, you have been given extremely bad advice!

      Hello everyone,

      I saw that brigudav updated his TWRP version to 3.5.2_10-2.
      https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=14943124697586337627
      Did anyone try it yet? Does decryption with OSS builds work? (I don't have the time to experiment with the new OSS builds atm)
      After testing, I can affirm that TWRP 3.5.2_10-2 by brigudav cannot decrypt the data encrypted with Android 11 + OSS vendor.
      5
      Guys, all what's been written in the recent couple of pages is totally excessive, why not just wait for an update of OrangeFox / TWRP that can deal with the device decryption on A11 + OSS vendor, before upgrading from A11 + MIUI vendor?

      ArrowOS 11 VANILLA 20210503 is working fine here and I have absolutely no interest and time for any hassle, as has been shown in the numerous posts from the last two weeks.
      4
      Can you tell more about it?

      Can it decrypt the the data partition with A11+OSS vendor?

      Is this what the Changelog entries from 2021-05-13 concerning android_bootable_recovery were all about?
      Like i said the Arrow recovery is only intended for OTA updates with no extra features. You won't be able to access internal data as its posed as a security risk.
      I just installed this ROM, but my wifi does not work. Any suggestions?
      I have answered and added a few FAQ's to the original post. Those who are still having difficulties switching to OSS builds have to check them out.

      As for the NFC issues they have addressed in the latest builds.
      4
      No news about updates to OrangeFox and TWRP yet, hopefully this issue is being worked on.

      I think this would be the patch for TWRP: https://gerrit.twrp.me/c/android_bootable_recovery/+/3570

      I would try it, but I am currently struggling to build a working android-11 TWRP.

      POCO X3 (NFC) (surya/karna)

      Note: These are enforcing builds. Safety net checks pass out of the box! No need to flash magisk modules, which might in turn break the integrity!

      Builds have been unified now under surya codename for both NFC and non-NFC variants

      Tip: Select OEM -> Device,choose Arrow version, choose build type: "GAPPS" or "VANILLA" to download.

      Latest Instructions for OSS builds (w.e.f 10/05/2021)
      If migrating from pre OSS builds
      • Flash the latest available MIUI 11 firmware. (Region doesn't matter!!)
      • Download and copy arrow build to a OTG prendrive or sd card.
      • Now flash Arrow Vanilla/Gapps build.
      • FORMAT DATA. (You'll loose all your data!)
      • Reboot.
      Fresh install coming from MIUI
      • Flash latest available MIUI 11 if you aren't on it already.

      TWRP Recovery by @brigudav :
      Note: This build of twrp will support decryption on ArrowOS OSS builds.

      ArrowOS Recovery :
      Note: This is a very basic aosp recovery only intended for OTA installs. Do NOT expect other functionalities.​
      * Do not use with DFE or while unencrypted.​
      F.A.Q :

      1. My WiFi, bluetooth and network aren't working after updating to OSS build?
      A. This happens if you're still on the old Q firmware. Flash the latest available R firmware and then follow the above give steps to properly flash the rom.​

      2. Unable to update OTA's using TWRP?
      A. The current available recoveries are outdated and are no longer supported for OSS builds. To have a hassle free OTA experience use the above mentioned ArrowOS recovery.
      A. Two of the currently supported recoveries are mentioned above.​

      So i haven't been around here for a while, after looking at the recent posts many seem to be confused, blaming and do not understand on migrating to OSS builds. In the final MIUI vendor builds the OTA functionality was blocked in order to prevent users from directly updating to OSS builds as it will be needing a MIUI 11 firmware followed by a clean flash. The same has been notified in our device changelogs. Every step and preventive measures have been taken, there's only much i can do from my side in clearing things up. We have this forum and community in place to help each other out, so lets not be pointing fingers here!

      Here again i would like to make it clear with a simple guide on how to migrate onto OSS build!

      Note: This update will require a CLEAN FLASH (format data), so please backup everything beforehand.
      • Flash the latest available MIUI 11 firmware. (Region doesn't matter!!)
      • Now flash Arrow Vanilla/Gapps build.
      • FORMAT DATA. (You'll loose all your data!)
      • Reboot.
      Beware that the current available recoveries haven't been updated yet to support decryption for OSS builds at this point.
      10
      Here are the instructions on how you should flash the new OSS Vendor ROM since most people here are confused:

      - Flash latest TWRP by brigudav
      - Flash Android 11 12.0.7 MIUI firmware
      - Reboot recovery
      - Format Data
      - Reboot recovery
      - Flash ArrowOS

      OPTIONAL:
      - Flash Magisk
      - Flash Gapps (If you're on Vanilla build & If you want custom gapps)

      - Reboot system

      Download link:
      - Firmware: https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/surya/stable/V12.0.7.0.RJGEUXM/
      - TWRP: You can find it on 4pda but you need an account. I'm not allowed to share it, so you have to get it yourself.

      This firmware is for NFC model as I'm not sure where is A11 firmware for non-NFC model. It can possibly work for non-NFC model, feel free to try.

      Even dev says in dec the 3rd changelog that notification led was implemented, it still doesn't work for me :(
      I'm aware of the notification led issue, its interlinked to an sepolicy denial from vendor which is quite tricky to address it while we're using the prebuilt/stock vendor. For now you can assume it as a trade off for enforcing builds. I'm working on a fix, once we start a full transition towards an OSS vendor these issues will be more convenient to be addressed.
