Unlocking bootloader is the first step in flashing roms. Again, research and try to help yourself. I am not assuming anything except the fact that you did no effort to help yourself or do any sort of reading regarding this matter. The real bloat is asking before reading. We are all learning here but please make the effort.
I understand your point of view.
In last two weeks i reply the same thing over and over again to help other people and sometimes the answer its on the same page. No effort of the people.
Noting against nobody but there are no effort so i give up to help other.
People need to read Frist page at first then after ask just go back later posts at least 3 or 4 pages back, after that use search and then ask.

Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC
I was looking for the guide on unlocking "Mi Bootloaders". If you worked with Bootloaders, you know that it's not the same process for all vendors. Searched XDA but didn't get any good results for unknown reason. There are other guides on the internet but I prefer XDA guides. Lastly, try to understand what I actually asked for and try not to be rude about it.

What is that about recoverys the op says about twrp and arrow recoverys.
I have Orangefox and installed all the pre oss builds. Do I have to change the recovery for latest oss ones?

It will not harm anything, but it's preferable to change to TWRP or ArrowOS recovery by your choice as they are tested to work properly with ArrowOS. TWRP is my recommendation.

    When I shut down, the screen freezes for a second, then the phone shuts down and boots up again. Only on second try the shutdown works and the phone actually powers off.

    I have the same problem with OSS roms, installing from European firmware V12.0.8.0.RJGEUXM. What firmware version are you using? Maybe Global firmware gives better result (V12.0.1.0.RJGMIXM)? If you confirm to me that you also used firmware V12.0.8.0.RJGEUXM to install ArrowOs, I would like to try to install from the global version and give feedback.

    In what order should I flash now to change from the latest version (July 19) to OSS pre-OSS (May 3)?

    Do you know which fw version to use and in what order to install it?

    Sorry for the wait!

    For my part, I use MiiFlash and the firmware "Stable Fastboot V12.0.8.0.QJGEUXM" (full rom). (you can find the whole thing here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/miui-updates-tracker-poco-x3-x3-nfc-surya-karna.4263015/).

    I install this file via Fastboot (I lose all my data!), I unlock the bootloader, I install the recovery of my choice (for my part, twrp), then ArrowOs pre-Oss.

    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.

    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

    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. (Flash global or any if you can't find your region)
    • 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.
    • Install any suitable recovery (mentioned below).
    • Download and copy arrow build to a OTG prendrive or sd card.
    • Flash latest Arrow Vanilla/Gapps build.
    • FORMAT DATA. (You'll loose all your data!)

    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.

    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.
