    Am I the only one who's having issues installing OTAs? My recovery says it failed to install ZIP file @/cache/recovery/block.map. I'm using latest Orange FOX Recovery. Trying to flash an update of Gapps variant of ArrowOS.

    I am on 21st daily, having no problems worth mentioning. I usually flash a new build every week, have you tried flashing and older build.

    You mean flashing a zip downloaded from ArrowOS website (that works fine for me), or installing an OTA update via built-in Updater app (that doesn't works for me due to the error I mentioned).

    Your not alone, I can not update ota too. I still on 26 april build now. Using gapps variant and lastest Orange fox.
    You can try the TWRP linked above and see if that works. If not, then you can just either adb sideload the update from a computer or just flash a new build from your recovery, it worked for me both ways :)

    Gonna need to wait for official TWRP to get Android 11 support, since it's not there yet. I wonder how we managed to get A11 ROMs without a properly working recovery lol

    Hi, I am really liking this ROM. I have been using it on my phone for several months and I have no notable complaints. But I would like to suggest a change or addition to the developer.

    Could you add extra volume control for the headphones?
    I like to listen to music regularly on my phone and the maximum volume falls short most of the time. Especially when I enable sound equalization.

    I would like to suggest that they add a feature to increase the headphone volume level above the maximum level that the ROM comes with by default.

    This is a feature that in other roms I have used with my phone. Like for example resurrection remix. Also sometimes this advanced feature could be enabled by flashing alternative kernels that already included it.

    Thank you in advance

    i only have one issue with this great rom,
    4G always disconnect and reconnect, so my MMS are not working , youtube always complain of being disconnected.

    I'm on last OTA, with last firmware, I tried installed quicksilver kernel and I still have issue.

    Do you have any idea? Thanks

      So, please someone tell me, What is the best recovery for this ROM?

      Just choose between TWRP or OrangeFox the one that fits your preference better.

      Also, please heed any special recommendation the developer of your preferred ROM may have.

      Personally, while I prefer TWRP simplicity, I found OrangeFox to be less error prone, so I stuck with it.
      Has anybody used storm breaker kernel with this rom? Or are custom kernels incompatible?
      Next questions, no appreciations, no contribution, i see 🤔

      ArrowOS 11.0

      is an AOSP/CAF based open source project started with the aim of keeping things simple, clean and neat, both for the Android system and users. We understand the pain of unnecessary and sometimes rarely used mods/features being shipped with custom roms nowadays which may end up causing battery drains and/or memory leaks & crashes. This is being strictly avoided on our side keeping everything to a bare minimum, delivering stable performance all the time without destroying the AOSP interface. With users getting more used to tweaks and features, we added just the right features and customisations that will be actually USEFUL at the end of the day.
