But if I remove the PIN / Password it also deletes the fingerprint that I have stored in several apps.

( Then I would have to set the fingerprint again for all apps )

Thank you.

Not necessarily true. You can immediately set up a new fingerprint upon flashing the new ROM. Simply don't launch any of the said apps before you set up your new fingerprint. Should work with most apps. Most of the apps won't know you added the fingerprint again unless you explicitly launch them without having a fingerprint set up. At least that's what I found out after flashing the latest ArrowOS 12 build.

So I just tried it and unfortunately I had to set the fingerprint again for almost all apps :-(

It's because the apps take the breastprint directly from Android.

But if I delete the Password or PIN, it automatically deletes the fingerprint as well.

Does anyone know when the OTA update feature will come to Arrow OS 12 ?

It's terribly inconvenient this way :-(

Otherwise I used this TWRP: TWRP Android 12

Thank you.

You can move the update to external SD card and install it from there. Deleting password/pin/fingerprint isn't necessary that way

For now, twrp won't decrypt unless we unlock the password.
Is it possible to update rom from twrp to external sdcard even without decryption?
I am worried that there will be a problem if I install it without decrypting it.
TWRP won't decrypt internal storage, SD card works fine though.

I updated the ROM that way and had no problems

Guys, what is the best Gcam you've found to that works well on this system? I'm very pleased with it overall, I'm liking it even more than AOS11 - just have to find a solid Gcam and that's it for now :)

Trying different gcams right now..
What am I supposed to choose when installing module for it to work? Also, do I have to be on Vanilla (ArrowOS 12) version for it to work, because my screen starts to flicker once the module is installed and phone rebooted. I just end up uninstalling it so I can use the device normally. Thanks

Try Tigr trCamera Xmas Release (2020-12-31) with this xml (works fine for portrait and video). The only issue is selfie video. trCamera Spring Release also works fine but the xml isn't compatible... (Maybe with a remake in the latest version?)

    This is ladies & gentleman why I told that A12 ArrowOS would needs couple of months to get stable in every aspect. And that's why I stayed with ArrowOS A11.

    I'm on arrowOS Android 11
    What should I do to install ArrowOS Android 12?
    I want instructions like:
    1. Download ZIP
    2. Reboot to recovery
    3. Wipe Data/Cache/system. I have doubt about this step. Should I format data or wipe Data? Should I wipe Data at all?
    4. Flash ZIP
    5. Boot to arrow os 12 and voila
    Do yourself a favor and do a clean install.

    1) Make a backup of your apps and settings
    2) Flash latest stable MIUI fastboot ROM
    3) Install TWRP
    4) Flash ArrowOS
    5) Format Data (Format, that's where you have to type "yes")
    6) Restart

    Like wide camera or macro camera. If it's possible to use it like on miui camera app.
    The GCam mod I posted above does have ultra wide and macro modes. Give it a try

    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.

    Up twrp-3.5.2_10-12-surya
    Added support for A12 encryption
    *(Now only password less decryption works, so remove screen lock before boot to twrp.)
