Some of your steps are wrong (wipe system - unavailable in any custom recovery, lack of any format data if you come from stock MIUI etc)[email protected] pointed you to the right, complete procedure to flash a custom ROM....how this did not answer to your questions?!?

which is what exactly? you asked any extra steps? if you read guide I posted link to and compared with steps you are posted, you will have answer to your question


sorry, maybe i should have been more clear.

the steps i am mentioning (cause i am already in arrow os now) are for dirty install updates.

updates which include new rom, new gapps, new "recovery rom" (for vendor + firmware).

Even though I recently switched to the Gapps version of this rom, I still can't seem to get the quick access wallet to appear on the power menu! Even though I have the setting enabled in settings > gestures > power menu > cards and passes.

Does anyone have any suggestions why this might not be working for me.

Could someone check system/product/priv-app and tell me if they have quick access wallet apk in there (I don't).

Hey Sir! Thank you for this wonderful ROM. Just wanted to suggest adding "press to unlock" settings for fingerprint. It has settings like that in stock MIUI ROM.

@ganesh varma Just wanted to say thank you for building and maintaining this! I have been using this ROM for some days now (Vanilla build + microG) and are very impressed. It is fast, battery efficient, stable - very good work indeed.

That's not the latest version. The latest version can be found in the same website you posted. It is now called the recovery ROM and comes with the latest FW (12.0.7) and vendor. Get the appropriate one for your device here.

How do you know that no extracted vendor zips are provided anymore? I couldn't find any information regarding this. And is it necessary to update vendor? I thought it is contained in ArrowOS by now.

Is it really possible when upgrading from one ArrowOS version to another to flash the Recovery ROM (which is a full MIUI ROM afaik) in between without losing/breaking /data? What are the proper steps for an OS update + firmware and vendor upgrade? Do I have to remove pin/pattern or backup and restore anything or is it just:
  1. Boot to recovery
  2. Flash Recovery ROM <- overwrites system, firmware, vendor
  3. Reboot to recovery? Is this required/recommended?
  4. Flash ArrowOS OTA zip <- overwrites system (and vendor? Is it contained in the OS?)
  5. (Optionally) flash kernel and magisk
  6. Wipe cache and dalvik
  7. Reboot to system
Thanks for any input on this.

The latest ArrowOS uses blobs from the latest release of MIUI. Further, the OP specifically states to use the latest firmware. Hence, there is merit to using the latest firmware.

The recovery ROM contains both the firmware and the vendor. Should ArrowOS contain the vendor image, it will overwrite any vendor image and no harm is done.

Also, bear in mind the person asking for instructions was pondering a clean flash. Hence, I gave him the aforementioned instructions.

If you are already on ArrowOS, simply flash the latest firmware + latest nightly. Magisk and the others are optional if you use root.

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.

Please, can you explain how use NFC to pay?
I've tried the ROM (with and without install Magisk). In both cases GPay installs fine, then no issues to add bank cards but when I try to pay in a store, the dataphone refuses to operate. No issues with MIUI.
Thanks

i think the nfc package used here is a standard one like many other roms around. the package must be nxp/nq compliant !

if you can decompile nfc.apk check if you have this in AndroidManifest.xml

com.nxp.nfc.nq

. The true package that must be used is NqNfcNci not the standard one NfcNci

. the symlinked (proprietary) library must be :
libsn100nfc_nci_jni.so ... and not the standard one libnfc_nci_jni.so

No custom rom uses these files except xiaomi.eu !

    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

    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.

    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!

    DOWNLOADS
    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.

    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.
