Hi ! Maybe a silly question, but I've never tried ... Is it possible to use MiFlash to install MIUI Global on a European Poco X3 which has MIUI European ? And if so, can this make ArrowOs perform better? (For example, if the developer works from the firmware in global version)

Thank you !

Same problem here, works somtetimes for up to a few few minutes after screen is off then stops working, and since these OSS Builds random reboots occur sometimes (never happened with last pre oss 20210503), but sine I´m selling this phone I don´t bother anymore.

Hi all,
Quick question, can I flash Arrow OS, coming from MIUI, without updating MIUI to the latest version available?

Right now I have MIUI 12.0.9 Global on Android 10. The latest version available is 12.0.1 on Android 11. I just don't want to upgrade because I'm afraid of Xiaomi adding ARB to Android 11.

So, can I just flash A11 firmware on top of my current version? Or do I have to wipe System and then flash A11 firmware? Any other partitions that require wiping before flashing A11 firmware?

Thanks!

You have to flash Miui 12.0.1 before flashing Arrow OS because both have to be on the same Android version... If you don't, then your phone will be in bootloop for sure...
Btw What is ARB?

ARB is for Anti Rollback. Basically once you update you cannot go back to the previous version. Flashing a previous version with a lower ARB number will brick your phone. Reason why I want to avoid upgrading.

Hey, I wanted to ask you one thing.

When I did the first install of Arrow OS I did a complete clean flash

At that time I was still flashing the firmware in version V12.0.1.0.RJGMIXM

( 2021-06-08 )

I have now updated to the latest Arrow OS Gapps build which was released on 2021-07-31

But I wonder if I also need to do a firmware flash or is it not necessary ?

I see the latest firmware is V12.5.1.0.RJGMIXM ( 2021-07-26 )

So do I have to do a firmware flash to the latest version or does the latest firmware version already include the Arrow OS ROM itself ?

Thank you.

    Hello.

    I have a similar problem that I reported yesterday on GitLab.

    https://gitlab.com/arrowos-support/issues/android/-/issues/241

    So can you comment on my GitLab post as well ?

    Maybe the developers will notice it sooner :)

    Thanks.

    payment by NFC does not work. I'm on 08/29 build
    I got the same message today, even though I'm using 20210601 build.

    SafetyNet also started failing this morning.

    Edit: The fix is rather easy. Flash this Magisk module:


    You need the safetynet-fix-v1.2.0-MOD
    4
    Please don't address another ROM in this thread.

    This thread is for the Arrow OS ROM.

    Thank you.
    And we're talking how Arrow compares to other ROMs.

    Please mind your business.

    Thank you.

    Just FYI, SafetyNet is ok again on latest (2021-09-08) build

    My list of modules is rather small:
    - ANX camera
    - Systemless hosts
    - Universal SafetyNet fix (linked above)

    I also use Magisk Hide and have hid Magisk. It's somewhere in the settings. The Magisk APK then gets a different name and different icon
    Alright, I think I got it working. I had Magisk Hide for Google apps and banking already activated. I hadn't hidden the manager yet though.

    Guide for anyone experiencing the same problem. What I did was:

    1. Make sure MagiskHide was active for everything Google and banking app
    2. Hide Magisk Manager App through the option (I renamed it to "Admin")
    3. Clear any storage of Google Pay, Google Play Store and Google Play Services through Settings > Apps & notifications
    4. Install SafetyNet-Fix-Mod.zip from storage in Magisk Manager
    5. Restart the device
    6. Open Play Store
    7. Open Google Pay and set up contactless payment

    Some of the steps might be redundant, but the old error doesn't show up and in theory it should work. Will have to see if actual payments work.

    Anyways, thanks for the guideline in the right direction, @Noter2017 !

    Edit: Payment works!

    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!)
    • Reboot.
    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.
