Coming from LineageOS I was used to just use the included email client (com.android.email) as I need to be able to check emails (from several accounts) but usually don't send any when on my mobile.

Now that ArrowOS comes without email client and I've never looked into this, any recommendation?

It should be free and open source software, F-Droid only shows me the following short list of possible candidates:

Aqua Mail. Greatly optimized, lots of features and amazing interface.

I've just unlocked my phone and installed the newest arrowos vanilla version (25.2.2021).
Unfortunately it didn't make an incredible stable impression.
- When starting up there is always an error since the first boot : illegalParameterException: volume external_primary not found
- When magisk tried to access the filesystem to find the boot.img to patch I've just got a blank screen. Killing magisk, and the file app didn't seem to work. I've also couldn't start up the file app anymore. Only a restart helped (back button now helping either). THen it it worked
- In Aurora droid when installing a software the first time, exactly the same happened. It should have asked me if I give aurora droid the permission to install the software, but only a white screen appeared. => only reboot fixed it.

other people got similar experiences? Or is it just bad luck?

It has been said before that it doesn't work, but it does. Only the indication of it doesn't, so basically your phone says it's charging slowly but it isn't, it's fast charging
I'm on the latest ArrowOS version and mine has never stopped working, and I've had this ROM for 3 months with constant updates
What about cameras?

After testing out multiple kernels on this ROM, I have found that stock kernel confers the best battery backup.

I've tried Stormbreaker, Optimus Drunk and F1xy and all of them offer better performance at the expense of slightly less battery backup. I guess the choice of kernel would depend on what the end-user values the most, that is, battery backup or performance.

I clean installed the latest update and had NONE of the issues you have mentioned. Did you follow the proper flashing instructions? Because if you mess those up you're screwed.
  1. Use OrangeFox Recovery
  2. Format /data partition
  3. Flash LATEST recovery ROM (12.0.7 FW+Vendor). Download here (for Surya) and here for Karna.
  4. Flash the ROM
  5. Reboot to Recovery
  6. Install Gapps (either from NikGapps or FlameGapps)
  7. Install Magisk 21.4 (You can update to the latest version once the app has been configured)
  8. Format /data partition (again)
  9. Reboot to System
Ensure that you have followed the above instructions and report back if there are any other bugs.

Hello,

I'm currently using an older build (Feb 10th) and everything is working fine, came from MIUI 12.0.5.0QJGTRXM, which I assume is also my current firmware version.

Would I need to flash a newer firmware if I want to update? And which one? Do I need to format data while updating?

Backup your data and do a clean flash of the ROM w/ latest firmware. I have linked them in my previous post on this thread.

Normally it does this by default. Magisk installs an addon.d script that's triggered after the OTA finishes, reinstalling itself. This works form me anyway.
Really? That's odd, because it definitely didn't work for me with the second to last update (and I haven't checked with the latest nightly, assuming that I have to manually re-flash Magisk, which I just did). Will have another look with the next update.

It indeed works now, no idea what went wrong previously.

So this feature with addon.d has brought me to the idea to write my on script to restore Bromite SystemWebView and the HDR fix after an OTA update, but it's not working.

Obviously I don't really have a clue what I'm doing and this is just a really rudimentary approach.

I have put the necessary files in /sdcard/TWRP and my script named 99-mymods.sh in /system/addon.d (with permissions 0755):

Code:
#!/sbin/sh
#
# ADDOND_VERSION=2
#
# /system/addon.d/99-mymods.sh
# After an ArrowOS upgrade, this script restores the listed mods.
#

. /tmp/backuptool.functions

case "$1" in
  backup)
    # Stub
  ;;
  restore)
    # Stub
  ;;
  pre-backup)
    # Stub
  ;;
  post-backup)
    # Stub
  ;;
  pre-restore)
    # Stub
  ;;
  post-restore)
    mount /product
    mount -o remount,rw /product
    # Bromite SystemWeview
    cp /sdcard/TWRP/webview.apk /product/app/webview/
    # HDR fix
    cp /sdcard/TWRP/qdcm_calib_data_nt36672c_* /product/vendor_overlay/29/etc/
  ;;
esac

Any idea why it's not working and what else to improve?

Ok so it's by far the best and most stable custom ROM I've tried by far. Big thanks to all devs working on this project. Unfortunately there are a few missing features to me. Could someone add them to ArrowOS or suggest me third party solutions to enable them?
- the charging speed is capped at 20W. How to change that to 33W?
- there's no "fullscreen" option to hide the navbar in select apps and an option to force an app to use the notch area (notch killer or something like that)

    Is it possible to install microG as a one ZIP file just like a gapps? Or, which procedure is the best to install microG?
    Here you go.

    I see more than one version of OF. I'm using this one - OrangeFox-R11-Unofficial-Beta-surya-10-01.zip, but I also see one that has a beta 4 and a beta 6 (Lunario versions). Am I using the correct one? So far no issues with updates using this version.
    I'm using the latest version posted in the thread

    [RECOVERY][SHARED][surya]OrangeFox Recovery Project[R11.0_A] Xiaomi POCO X3 NFC

    and it's working fine. Just be sure to enable OTA Updates and disable any access protection in the OrangeFox settings (as that can mess up an OTA update).

    So i have been using this rom for somewhere over 2 months now. 1 bug that I recently noticed other than the visual bug of turbo charging is that whenever phone's battery is 3% or lower, microphone, speaker and earpiece stops working. No audio is recorded, no call can be heard etc
    same here, wifi also stops working, volume UP button does nothing. and this starts from 5%.

    issue persists through multiple builds 2-3months now.

    Hi, trying this rom for a week. It's nice and smooth.
    But i have a weird pb, when i use a bank app (revolut), i need to take a selfie in order to validate my account, but i can't, app is freezing. Possible with miui. Saw a post previously which was talking about the same pb, with Microsoft teams, but can't Refind it. Any option? Thanks
    Has already been fixed in the latest experimental build and should be available with the next stable nightly tomorrow:

    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.

    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.
