[ROM] [11.0.0] ArrowOS POCO X3 [OFFICIAL][SURYA][UNIFIED]

Search This thread
getting ready to get arrow on a x3 ;) ( just flashed my f2 last week ;) )
big difference ; i could use sideload to get the rom zip on my f2 but that is missing from the x3 twrp.
is there another ( fastboot ) command to flash the zip ?
xiaomifastboottools can flash the twrp file but not the zip if i'm right...
How I do it's usually in TWRP I wipe system data cache etc and then format data. Reboot to TWRP after formating data and then connect it with USB to a PC. It should show as removable storage. Copy the zips you want to flash and flash them from internal storage. If it doesn't show as a removable storage check in the mount section if MTP is enabled.

It seems there are no more updates for ArrowOS 11? I was looking for a stable rom with frequent security updates, A12 seems too "experimental" (and no per-app data restrictions)

Can someone tell me what are these daily updates that are eating up my mobile data. I gave my phone to my mom and she barely uses it but somehow it ate up 2 gb of her data in a few days.
This ROM is affected by this bug it seems:


I also experienced high data usage and high battery drain.

I was able to workaround the issue by running

```
pm disable com.google.android.gms/.chimera.GmsIntentOperationService
```

as root.

You probably need to run this after every rom update.

Thanks for the info. I forbade access to everything except Whatsapp and it seems to be working

Hi

I am using Arrow OS version 11 in the latest version i.e. 2022-02-26

I use TWRP from the developer Brigudav specifically this version: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=2981970449027565512

I am currently solving but the fact that no password is required after entering TWRP and therefore all files are encrypted.

Do you know what could be the problem ?

Thank you very much

Most people recommend using the 15.12 build:

Hi

Yes I tried reverting back to TWRP: 3.6.0_10-1

And suddenly everything works after entering the PIN in TWRP I can decrypt the data in the storage

Do you know why this is not possible in newer versions ?
No idea to be honest.

I simply remembered that someone on this thread had the same problem you did and solved it using this version of TWRP

Does smart charging have a negative effect on battery? Say, if I keep my phone set to stop charging at 60% and start charging again at 50% and *keep my phone plugged into a wall charger the whole day*, does the phone rejecting a 5W input charging cause issues?

I've noticed that the touch response of the phone gets

1. Really bad when it is actively charging
2. Better but still noticeably slow when rejecting charging
3. Normal when not charger isn't plugged in at all.

Ok, so first of all, the phone is not rejecting anything from the charger. The phone itself decides how much current goes into the battery, so no matter how powerful the charger is, the phone will just take what it needs, and the charger will simply supply that if it can. Notice that when your phone stops charging, the charger cools off, meaning, it's not putting out any power. Second, your touch issues are the result of a bad charger which has a lot of ripple at the output (extremely fast voltage fluctuation) and that's what's messing with your touch, the phone itself is perfectly fine. You need to either buy a higher quality charger or get another charger that came with some other phone as they're usually good when it comes to that. Whatever you do, don't buy a cheap charger as they can actually be dangerous. And when it comes to the battery, it doesn't care how often you charge it, 50 percent is pretty much the ideal state of charge.

Oh that's true, the charging brick is not hot right now. Thanks for that KEKL.
Umm, so I'd like to clarify what I meant by touch response. I'm not familiar with how exactly others use it, so maybe the term confused you, but even a brand new phone has this issue while charging, and the issue I'm describing is shown by the following example:

When the phone is charging and I glide type, the response to my glide is snappier when the phone isn't charging. This happens on mine and other phones on all chargers I tested on.

You might be confusing my "touch response" term to mean that touches don't register as well, but that's not the case. My bad for using a term and not thinking of what else it could mean.

Oh, I see what you mean. That is odd. I've never experienced any change when charging vs not charging. How about charging form a power bank? There could still be the possibility that something else is causing interference in your house's wiring although it would have to be pretty extreme. This is very unlikely, but it doesn't hurt to try plugging it in another room if you haven't done that already. Just saying what I would try if I were you. Ultimately though, it could still be a software thing.

On a cursory test with a touch screen test, I see no difference between while charging and not charging, whether through power bank or wall. I'm astonished.
Umm, sorry for bothering you with my misconceptions I guess. How did. Waytoodank

Edit: And then I opened discord and I noticed the smoothness of the glide hiccup. Removed the charger, got smoother. I give up.

Try always forcing 120Hz and see if it still happens. Maybe you can narrow it down like that.

I always force 60Hz YEP. Poco x3 120Hz just feels half done for me. Like, what's the point out loading ui faster when the app loads in the same speed KEKL. Like, the screen is faster than that processor sometimes so I just have it 60hz (the same way I force games to 30fps cuz I'd rather have consistent fps than sometimes lag)

So it's not related to that either. Speaking of 120Hz, I like it because it makes scrolling a lot more responsive and it just feels better, the app loading speed is the same of course since it has nothing to do with refresh rate.

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?

    Has anyone tried a dirty flash from Arrow 11 to Arrow 12?

    I did it and haven't found any problems so far

    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.
    Update -09

    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.
