Hello everyone, I am new to arrow os and i want to install on my poco x3 nfc. i have a few questions that need answers:
1. What is the difference between the vanilla build and gapps build?
2. Is there full tutorial from unlocking bootloader to flashing the rom? or a video tutorial maybe?
3. can you share your screenshots of the apps that are install from arrow os?

Thanks and have a good day :)

Like other users reported earlier, I also have the problem with WhatsApp.
It stops working after a few minutes after I close the app.
I already set to "not optimize" in battery settings, but WhatsApp Web is giving me the "check connection to phone" message, after a few minutes.

Other apps are working fine. Whatsapp only gets the connection when I open the app again.
Is there any problem with the OS?

Just download the last Magisk Build.


Change .apk to .zip

Go to the Recovery and flash the Zip.

Done.
I searched the install method and found John Wu's method. I tried it, but my phone crashed big time. Igot the Phone is Destroyed message, but luckily fastboot worked. I followed the install recommendations from page 1 to get back up and running. The Magisk rename and flash with twrp worked perfectly.

Can anyone help me? I've been getting "Updater process ended with ERROR: 1
I formatted my data, wiped cache, dalvik, then proceeded to install the latest build on my phone. I keep getting this error and I don't know why.
I just did the same PE to Arrow. Did you follow the instructions on page 1 fully and exactly? 1- I flashed a miui recovery rom, then 2- flashed Arrow, then 3- formatted data, then 4- rebooted and set up the phone, no issues.
You have to follow the first post.

I am trying to install the Sept 23 update. The system boots into twrp, but the first screen is Mount Decrupt Data, with a field to "Enter Password for User [0].
There's a cancel button that reboots the phone and Select language button.
I don't want to screw anything up, so is there a password to enter, or do I somehow set one up? I'm using Brigudav 3.5.2_10.7.
Sorry figured it out...I used my pin # used for security to log in.
this issue comes again and again!

guys:
this means you have encypted the partition and TWRP asks you for the PIN you used to enter phone after unlocking screen

Can someone point me to a good tutorial or method for installing Magisk. I tried John Wu's and one on XDA Developers;
I completed to this stage - "The Magisk app will patch the image to [Internal Storage]/Download/magisk_patched_[random_strings].img. (using the string shown on my phone), but I get an error at the final step when I use this command "adb pull /sdcard/Download/magisk_patched_[random_strings].img" (using the string shown on the phone). When I open the phone to the storage folder to see the string, I get an Error, Cannot open file/folder! storage.
Thanks

Just download the last Magisk Build.


Change .apk to .zip

Go to the Recovery and flash the Zip.

Done.


Magisk is ready to be install inside the TWRP that is stated in the 1st post under the "advanced options" menu

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
After following these steps and rebooting I don't see AOSP dialer in the system and the default application crashes, what could be the issue? I have vanilla build with microg.

After installing, the dialer is simply called "Phone", just like the stock dialer. Give it another name or another icon to better distinguish it.

The package name of the AOSP is dialer com.android.dialer. Version is 23.0.

I've been using it for over a week now and it's 100% stable

Hello! Does anyone knows why my screen does stranger things when I use it with low bright? It seems like turning up and down very fast the brightness level of the screen and it is very annoying. It is very noticeable when I am watching something with a light background, like a page with white background and black text

Is anybody else having their statusbar items disappear in certain apps? It seems to me like it doesn't change the color of the icons/text making them effectively invisible. I've noticed this in the YouTube and Wikipedia apps but there could be more. It goes away when I switch to dark mode.

    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.

    For anyone who had the GApps Updater bug on the 03/10 build & has been following along with the diagnosis process: the newly-released 08/10 build seems to have updated properly, overwriting the dodgy config file for the GApps channel on the update server.

    So hopefully, you'll now find the Updater app can successfully download the 08/10 GApps build.

    If there are no errors flagged up in the next day or so I'll probably go ahead & tag the Gitlab ticket for closure.

    FROM THE MODERATOR: Posts like this only drives more developers away. Instead of whining or griping about what you would like to see ....Try making your own ROM, then maintain it and answer every question someone who does not understand what it takes to make a ROM. In other words, show us your skills other than running your mouth and complaining. Remember, Everyone in XDA is here doing what they do for free.




    Legion 3.8,,, the only rom I've been back to for 4 months, no one can make a rom, I'm watching the developers with amazement fxy.011 kernel is successful, every time you play it starts great. Will corvus and miui swell in 15 days, there is no rom to install, wouldn't it be nice if the developers gathered under the same roof? ? ? ? Ok, when I install it, a light rom comes out, but the phone turns itself off, this problem is not solved. I get very good performance especially without using pubg modules. The groups that make modules are total bullshit, they eat the device's brain, please stop making roms every day, something is done, the other is broken, I loaded 80 roms, I'm fed up, legion developer you really know this but you quit. also poco x3 nfc

    a crappy rom camera is so bad I do not recommend
    i dont think people use the stock cam of custom roms lol. You can disregard this rom if you dont like it. Anyway, there are gcam and anx cam and others to enjoy cam in custom roms. Maybe you did not try to explore, and now you are spreading bad vibes to users. Remember the devs created this rom for us to use FOR FREE and nobody is telling you to use this forcefully lol

    When can we expect android 12? I know it's close, really can't wait
    Usual question so usual answer : when it's ready...

    The source code (at least in AOSP) is available since only a few days (and I'm not sure everything is available).

    I know most people, as you (and me !), wants to get the most recent stuff but please be patient ;)
    Let the devs do their magic and, please, never ask for an ETA : they will publish when i's ready :D

    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.
