Enforcing/Permissive

can you explain the difference between the two selinux

Enforcing is overall more secure than Permissive. With permissive, you're more vulnerable of having your data stolen. Also banking applications do not work with permissive mode on, although there are some ways to make it work on permissive, such as using magisk hide as well as hiding the magisk manager (by renaming). There are some benefits of permissive, though, using mods such as Viper4Android - whereas on Enforcing it does not work (from my experience). It's totally up to the user to decide which mode is best for them. If it's your main phone and you have banking apps and important information on, then I suggest Enforcing. Whereas if it's your secondary phone without any important information on it, then use permissive and mod it to the fullest extent.

Just switched over from Lineage. What a blast! Even exFAT support is in! :)

So microSD card should work unlike on NitrogenOS?

I have tested the stable ROM (surya) and in the android configuration screen where the language is selected, something that says UI stops, then it continues with the configuration and at the time of activating WiFi it does not search for networks, the configuration can be done with mobile data but it is a great impediment, currently I have installed the unofficial experience pixel ROM for surya with the same installation method and it is perfect

    Smart Charging is removed for a reason. It has problems, especially with Xiaomi devices. You can check the issues it has in other devices forum, it's related to Xiaomi source code.
    Well I'm using it on my *Xiaomi* Poco X3 NFC since it was implemented without *any* problem and I'm gonna miss it dearly once I dare to upgrade from my pre-OSS version ...

    Smart charging is broken on all OSS based ROMs unfortunately.
    One more reason the jump to OSS was a few years too soon...

    FYI

    ArrowOS for Poco X3 it's not dead!

    In ArrowOS for RN10Pro forum OP said that pause is because ArrowOS infrastructure is in their focus. So other devices are also affected, We will wait, but when we finally get the new ArrowOS update, it will be much better compared to previous one. Just be patient.

    Hi, I'm on MIUI 12.0.8 A11 and it's been such a pain in the butt how awful it has been so far, especially with the touch screen problems, some notifications disappearing, etc.
    I'm thinking about unlocking the bootloader and get TWRP, but I currently have some questions:

    1. How can I correctly install ArrowOS given that I'm on A11? Saw there were 2 methoods on the main post but I'm not sure which one to follow
    2. If I get TWRP and Magisk before getting Arrow, do I have to root the device again? Or it stays like normal?
    3. Perhaps this can go on the main question, but I was wondering if I can install Arrow with the XiaoMiTool software, or shall I do everything on TWRP?

    Cheers.
    I know it's in the main post and probably others will just say the same too you but tbh i wish someone would tell me in details what to do sometimes, so....
    The downloads:
    1-You're on the latest eu miui so you don't really need to install it again, but just download the fastboot version just in case anything goes south that's your save point.
    2- preferably download the twrp version on the main post since it's tested with this rom
    3- of course download arrow os (+ gapps if you wish to install the vanilla version of rom)
    4- you wanted to root so i guess magisk is needed
    5- you might need to download the dfe zip file to decrypt your phone *totally optional*
    Before the start:
    1-Make sure you back up all your data, files, chats, codes (i lost access to discord cause authenticator doesn't sync with gmail T-T) just everything and put it on your computer next to the downloaded files (I'm a tidy neat freak)
    Make sure you have the latest miunlock and miflash and make sure your adb and fastboot drivers are ready
    The trials of doom(aka installing)*refer to steps on first page please)
    1- unlock your bootloader (that will format your phone)(i like to get my sdcard out just in case)
    2-i said it was already formated but please go to miui recovery mode and format it once again (to be on the safe side)
    3- don't boot into system , directly boot into fastboot, connect to your pc and install twrp through fastboot (i always use mini adb+fastboot so i do it with simple codes)
    4- arrow os , gapps*, magisk and dfe* on your sdcard or your otg drive
    5- flash arrow os , *then gapps*
    6- format ( the format that ask you to type "yes"
    *Optional*- flash dfe to cancel forced encryption
    Why? So you don't need to format all the internal storage every single time you wanna tinker in there
    * Dirty flashing across roms is a taboo , don't think about it*
    I think you might wanna wipe dalvik and cache too
    7- reboot to system
    8- Return to twrp and flash magisk

    Congrats you probably have your phone in the best condition it can ever be, if not maybe repeat it's almost like magic tbh some times it makes no sense it would work even with the same exact steps
    ~Sorry if i said too much, best luck~

    Hello. It's my first time attempting to flash this rom, and may I know what is the default camera app in this rom? I kinda want the MIUI camera app because of the features. If it doesn't have the MIUI camera app, where can I install it? Thank you very much for your help!
    The ROM comes with GCam Go pre-installed.

    To install the MIUI camera app, you need Magisk.

    Install ANX 1.5, restart, start the camera once, install ANX 2.4, restart and enjoy.

    The files are here:

    I'm on 26th may 2021 build, everything is fine at my end except for navigation. Anyways, which camera are you using tho?
    ANX Camera from here:


    Use need Magisk to use. Flash ANX 1.5, restart, flash ANX 2.4, restart and enjoy.

    And I also like Aspen GCam based on 8.1. You can find it here:


    Create a folder called ConfigsSettings8 on your phones memory and paste aspen20210705.xml there. Install Aspen camera and start it. Double click on the black area on the button on the screen, select aspen20210705.xml and save. Camera will restart and everything works. Picture quality is perfect. The only downside is that ultra wide doesn't work

    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.

    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.

    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.
