I just switched to ArrowOS yesterday and noticed screen flickering with low brightness. I found some other complaints about this, some about MIUI, some about ArrowOS. But no clear description how to fix this. I haven't seen this before with MIUI or PE+, so it must be related to ArrowOS. Any ideas how to fix?

The flickering is an absolute no go. The automatic brightness management seems to be badly broken and is working not as smooth as in other ROMs or MIUI. Strange that not more people are complaining. Not sure if this can be fixed with changing settings but I haven't found the right option yet.

Which refresh rate (min and max) are you guys using?

I had flickering issue but it's gone since I flashed Sep 18 build.
I also noticed my device became very hot after I connected it to charger on 5% battery, the tempreature was 45C! I don't know if this is a bug or not.

Btw, will WireGuard kernel module added in future builds?

Just back after months on Pixel Experience (lost our developer) and a failed attempt to get Lineage working over the last couple of days. I'm up and running. Just curious if Magisk is needed for anything with this rom, or should I just leave it out.
Any other issues - flickering I will look for.
BTW, is the camera OK?

Camera is ok. If you want a better one, there are GCam mods available or ANX camera (port of stock MIUI camera).

I use Magisk for ANX camera (which I think is better and more stable than GCam) and AOSP dialer (alternative to Google Phone) to record all calls.

I couldn't find aosp dialer anywhere could you please provide me with a link
Here you go:


Flash it in Magisk, follow the on screen instructions (Vol+, Vol- etc)

Restart

Make AOSP dialer your default app for phone calls

Give AOSP dialer all permissions

Enjoy

Thanks man
The only thing I'm missing is the waiting notification " when I call someone and he is on another call I get a call on waiting notification"
Is there anyway to enable this

    No. Clean flash is a must. And latest brigudav TWRP which has working A12 encryption.
    Ouch! I don't really look forward to a clean flash, it's my daily driver and some secure apps don't really like it (they think it's a different device), but I might try it sometime in the near future.

    Is there any list of known issues? Something to be especially aware of?

    Also, as far as I understood from another thread, the latest brigudav's TWRP only works if no PIN / Password is set? Hopefully we'll get a fully working version soon.

    Does anyone have snapchat show up as an option when sharing stuff?
    I've never even had snapchat, it's not installed...nothing... it's very weird

    I have just seen that there are A12 official builds on the website... are there news on this that I have missed?

    What is the status? Can it be flashed dirty over A11? I know TWRP might be an issue, but what other problems can be expected?
    There's a thread for arrow 12

    Flashed it yesterday, coming from MIUI 12.5. Love it. So nice that the mi sound enhancer option is still there! Works smooth. Only bug I noticed is the screen flickering when the brightness is set to manual on the lowest option. Thank you very much for maintaining this rom. I will update to 12 when its official :)

    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.​

    Hello.

    Does anyone have any working TWRP for Surya model ?

    I see that the developer Brigudav seems to have given up on developing TWRP for Surya.

    TWRP by Brigudav Official website

    So is there any replacement ?

    Thank you very much.

    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.
