Well it looks like I've bricked the phone. I downloaded the latest miui fastboot version, 8.4gb extracted,12.5.4.0, extracted it to a folder on my PC. I then booted the phone ito fastboot, connected it, got the windows jingle, found the device in miflash (latest version), loaded the rom, set miui to clean all, then started the flash. It was green, ran for a few seconds and then failed. I tried several times and nothing but failures. Changed usb cables, different usb ports, nothing worked. Since it failed I tried to reboot (mistake), nothing happened and the screen is black. I get the windows jingle when I plug the phone into a USB, but no device shows in This PC. Plugging it in and out in device manager does give a windows prompt, but no phone shown and can't find the device. Adb devices shows nothing.
Is there anything I can do with this phone to recover?
Can you get back to fastboot or it just remains black?

Can't get back into fastboot. Phone remains black. Windows does give a chime when I connect and disconnect, but thats about all that happens. This is the device that shows in device manager when I plug it into the usb/ .
adb does not find the phone.

A few questions:

1) Can I personalise the font in this build? I remember that was an option in ArrowOS 11. Am I correct?
2) Despite increasing the animation to 1.5x or 2.0x from dev options, the animations still appear to remain unchanged. Is that the case for everyone?

Oh that messed up. So you can't see it in CMD prompt via adb? If that's the case then I have no suggestions, sorry. Outside my knowledge.

Yep, no communication other than what I see in device manager. I have an older Pixel 2, so I'm up an running. But the small screen, texting is really difficult and I'm sure I've sent some wierd messages in the last day.

Looks like the phone is in EDL mode. If you can't get into fastboot, you're going to have to get a hold of an authorized xiaomi account to flash via miflash through EDL. The only way I know of would be contacting someone who has such an account, they charge like 25 dollars for flashing (might be totally wrong, please correct if so).

I have tried a few things, but non work so far. I do get the phone showing in miflash, but it errors when I try to flash the fastboot rom - try to reset...
I found this post, but "testpoint" doesn't help. Edl mode on the poco X3 nfc | XDA Forums
Still working it, but running out of steam.

There is no option to turn off vibration when unlocking screen with fingerprint.

No icon pack support.

There is no option to turn off the little control bar at the bottom.

I cannot turn off the notification led when my battery drops below 15%.

I've had this problem, and I found someone who can help me by using their mi auth account. I paid 14$ for it.

Looks like qualcomm service mode (specjał thing). Google it. There are tools to use it. If phone connects like this there is a hope. Service guys should be able to do something.

I had similar issues, not sure exatly what helped, but I think I had to fiddle with USB drivers, the phone isn't recognised as a phone,

    TWRP DECRYPTION

    After having flashed:

    * MIUI Rom
    * Custom Rom ( here Arrow OS )

    and nothing else, before the first boot to SYSTEM, I use this script

    1653034540090.png


    THEN DON'T FORGET TO FORMAT DATA BEFORE FIRST BOOT TO SYSTEM.

    After the first boot to System, if you return to TWRP, Internal Storage will be normally shown with folders and files.

    EDIT : of course, all this is possible thanks to @brigudav and his TWRP 3.6.1 so thx man !!!

    You have misunderstood, because that script turns OFF encryption and only that's why TWRP is able to show folders and files, which means your data partition is unencrypted and all your data an easy grab if you should lose your phone!
    1
    Points of view man, I understand your opinion but I prefer to stay completely decrypted :)
    Couldn't stand the risk. I have never lost my phone so far, but with all the 2FA, banking and wallets on my phone, having it unencrypted would be unthinkable.

    It's funny, once in a while I somehow end up in Poco X3 thread...

    Thanks to the programmers who are always on the move and who feed their passions. I write all my impressions and everything I noticed in the first 5 days of use
    I have recently installed Arrow 12 latest version sil little x3 nfc version with gapps.
    In daily use and in personal settings I noticed some bugs:
    -in the emergency information I can not add emergency contacts.
    -there is an app for crypto that I use often that should be unlocked even with the fingerprint sensor but it does not work.
    -unlocking with face is not present or I can't find it
    -I must emphasize, that the battery has a long life
    -I would have preferred a more complete gcam type gcam 8.4 latest

    Thanks again
    To help everyone, you can report bugs to this ROM better.

    If I already have arrow os installed with a newer twrp can I simply flash this img in twrp to downgrade or should I use the adb method? And will a wipe be necessary to decrypt my phone?
    Yes, you can downgrade TWRP by flashing an older version.

    For example, if you are currently running the latest version of TWRP (twrp-3.6.1_11-1-surya_20.04.img). You can flash downgrade older version TWRP (twrp-3.6.0_10-1-surya-15.12.img).

    Be aware the older version TWRP (twrp-3.6.0_10-1-surya-15.12.img) decrypts ArrowOS 11 Only! It does not decrpyt ArrowOS 12 or ArrowOS 12.1

    There is currently no version of TWRP that decrypts Android 12/12.1 as far as I know!

    Sorry I don't have a solution, just wondering what is the /data/media.BAK trick?
    Internal storage is stored in /data/media. If you backup data partition, this folder will not be backed up, unless you rename it to something else like "/data/media.BAK".

    I've recently upgraded from 11 to 12.1. When doing so I installed 12.5.7 firmware. I have had zero problems with ghosting.

    With respect to nandroid backups, the latest TWRP that I'm using can save them to an external SD card which is what I do (and I believe to USB OTG but I haven't tested this)
    I suggest you to flash 12.5.5 firmware as 12.5.7 seem like it can brick x3 nfc according to arrowos telegram channel

    My Clean flash of Arrow-v12.0-surya-OFFICIAL-20220123-GAPPS.zip still shows only Screenshot at the bottom of the recents window.

    Where in the launcher settings? I do not see any recents setting at all in the default Lawnchair launcher settings
    It's in the launcher settings.

    Zzenyoo,

    Thank you very much for showing me how to enable the Clear All Button At the Bottom of the Recents screen for ArrowOS 12 - Arrow-v12.0-surya-OFFICIAL-20220123-GAPPS.zip

    I feel really stupid & highly embarrassed that I was not able to figure this out for myself. The answer was right in my face & I did not see it. I am truly humbled. Thank you again for your patience & your reply.

    I included procedures & screenshots below to help anyone else that may want to turn on or off the Clear All Button At the Bottom of the Recents screen for ArrowOS 12.

    Procedure
    1. Long press any blank space on the Lawnchair Launcher screen
    2. Select Home Settings from the menu
    3. Select Recents from the Settings menu
    4. Select Clear All Button at Bottom button
    5. Verify by selecting recents buttons at very bottom of screen. Clear all will now show at the bottom of the screen instead of the extreme left of the recents screen.
    Screenshots

    Everything is working fine so far. The only issue is that the fingerprint scanner acts as some sort of "enter" key. Does anyone know how to make it ignore accidental touches?

    I managed to fix the annoying fingerprint issue (the one reported above by me, and by other users on the first few pages of this thread). The fingerprint sensor was acting like an "enter key" whenever I touched it, which was quite annyoing).

    It was fixed after completely restarting the whole process, by reflashing the latest MIUI rom (12.5.3 Global) and then repeating all the steps to install ArrowOS. Here's a list of steps, if you're having the same issue or any other issues that might pop up for just some users:

    1 - Use MiFlash20210226 to flash the ROM downloaded from xiaomifirmwareupdater website:

    "MIUI V12.5.3.0.RJGMIXM Stable Official Update for POCO X3 NFC Global (surya)"

    The archive name is: surya_global_images_V12.5.3.0.RJGMIXM_20211013.0000.00_11.0_global_9eca9fae68.tgz
    Size: 5.2 GB (it's the fastboot type, not the recovery type).

    Note 1: if you don't know how to do this, look for "[GUIDE]⚙ USE XIAOMI FLASH TOOL" here on XDA, by user @NOSS8

    Note 2: It's normal to receive an error at the end when using the "clean all" option, right when the smartphone automatically reboots while flashing. As long as it's taking a while to flash all the necessary data, it should be fine.

    2 - Don't know if this is necessary, but I booted into the MIUI 12.5.3 system, skipped most configs, then I let it finish the initial configuration. Made sure it's the last update avaliable through OTA.

    3 - Reboot into fastboot (hold power +volume down).

    4 - I used the "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" tool in order to use the fastboot command to flash the latest TWRP compatible with Android 12 by @brigudav
    Currently, the file is called: twrp-3.5.2_10-12-surya-a12.img and you can find it here on XDA.

    Note: Boot into TWRP right away after flashing it, don't let your smartphone boot into the MIUI or it'll be overwritten.

    5 - While in TWRP, go to WIPE > Advanced wipe > Select "Dalvik / ART cache" + "Cache" + "Data" and confirm the action.
    Press the home button to return to TWRP main menu.

    6 - While in TWRP, use "install" to flash the zip archive of the latest firmware package for MIUI V12.5.3.0 (Global).
    Currently, it's: fw_surya_miui_SURYAGlobal_V12.5.3.0.RJGMIXM_624ada8a33_11.0.zip also available through the xiaomifirmwareupdater website.
    Press the home button to return to TWRP main menu.

    Note: you can use your PC to send these zips into your smartphone's "Download" folder while in TWRP.

    7 - Also while in TWRP, use "install" to flash the zip archive of the latest official ArrowOS (Gapps version) with android 12.

    Note: Don't forget to go into WIPE > "format data", and typing "yes" to confirm, after flashing the ArrowOS Zip archive.

    8 - Reboot system and you're done.
