I'm having a weird issue right now: the phone isn't mounting any external USB device (pendrive). It happens with at least 3 different pendrives, and I haven't been able to find any that works.

According to dmesg, the device is recognized, it's just not mounted.

Of course all of them work with a different phone, and, funnily, even with TWRP in the same phone! So I think it's clearly not a hardware issue.

Has anybody found some similar issue, or has any idea what could be going on?

Does anyone else have a problem with the brightness? I usually use the phone with Auto-Brightness enabled and to me it seems really sensitive. Every slight change of brightness in the room/area I am in will trigger a noticeable brightness change on the display, either going too dark or bright. I have also observed screen flickering.

Yep, this rom's got that issue. A12 is better in this scenario.

You're definitely not alone on this. The auto-brightness is strange as you say.

I'm on 27 may 2021 build and want to update to the latest one. What do I need to flash before installing latest build and what's the correct order of flashing for me?

I'm on the December 15th version and multiple times per day when I go to wake up the screen, I can see that the backlight turns on but the screen remains black. I then have to click the power button again to turn the screen off and click it again to get it to work. This has only started since I updated to that version. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yeah. Happens to me sometimes too.

On Lineage I had a similar issue. Resolved it by setting the minimal refresh rate to 90 Hz.

That's true. Gradation on brightness switching isn't smooth at all. I got used to it. Minimal brightness also takes 1/20-30 part of the slide. It's not in 1 step but more of them.

I heard that ArrowOS A12 behaves better in that regard.

About flickering, solution is posted above. With CABC, it's more evident I think. I use 120Hz with CABC constantly so I have no issues.

Hello everyone!

I am a X3 NFC using the 15 December ARROW latest build and has someone detected battery drains? Also If I tried to install a Custom kernel pass the boot logo but the arrow logo gets stuck in loading forever.

Does anyone came up with these issues, any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi, thanks for your reply..

Where can I enable or disable VoLTE? I can see "4G calling"?

Edit: Okay, I disabled that and it seems to have worked! Can I ask, is it just this rom or does VoLTE always do this?

Thank you for helping, I really appreciate it!

It's not a problem with the ROM.

A lot (or maybe even all) of users have this issue, including me. It's very old bug on Arrow A11. I don't know why our maintainer doesn't know that for so long time. How to pass this information to him, does anyone know? I've tried to do that in Telegram Arrow OS chat, PM him and got fully ignore...The last hope was XDA forum, but seems that messages here are ignoring too. It's very sad...

    Being on 27th May 2021 build, what would I need to do before flashing newest Arrow build? Or what would be the best way to go back full stock, but keeping BL unlocked so I can just go my own way from there?

    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.​

    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.
