There is new 23.01.2022 official build (clean flash of course 🤷🏻‍♂️) and there is a 'clear all recents'.

My Clean flash of Arrow-v12.0-surya-OFFICIAL-20220123-GAPPS.zip still shows only Screenshot at the bottom of the recents window. The Clear All button has been moved all the way to the left now.

In the Arrow-v12.0-surya-OFFICIAL-20220115-GAPPS.zip build the Clear All button was at the bottom of the recents screen.

You only need to clean flash if you are coming from December 25th build. It you are on the January 15 build you can dirty flash. I just did that and booted without problem to the January 23rd build. ONLY DONT FORGET to remove Device security as TWRP cannot decrypt A12 rond yet.

Sideload or flash from SD card should work without decryption as far as I know, should we still remove fingerprint and security if using one of those methods?

I love Arrow 12 OS ROM. It is my daily driver & I am extremely happy with the ROM.

I know that Arrow-v12.0-surya-OFFICIAL-20220122-GAPPS.zip is an experimental build so this is not a complaint.

Please put the Clear All button on the Recents screen back at the bottom of the screen. I really love not having to scroll all the way to the left just to click the Clear all button on the recents screen.

Thank you!

I am running the GAPPS build

You're freeing RAM (cache, apps) and forcing your CPU to do the work again, consuming more battery. Android knows how to manage memory

does clean flash (from 25th december build) here mean that i have to flash miui again, as written here?
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.

I didn't flash MIUI and everything went alright (not talking about last update, but coming from dic-25) after Data Wipe.

I have installed 12.5.4 firmware (there's a zip for that, just a few hundred mb flasheable through TWRP) since the first days of December.

Edit: I don't know about the fingerprint issue... it happened to me BUT after flashing a custom kernel. I reflashed the ROM (yes, another data wipe, because bootloops) and everything went back to normal

True that. I was upgrading from Dec 25 and decrypt internal using build in TWRP solution (I'm curious about future OTAs).

    I just upgraded to Arrow OS 12.1 and all seems to work flawlessly except that the quick settings appear to always be in dark mode, even if the rest of the system is in light mode:

    I wanted to know if this is intended behaviour (I found some posts in /r/android_beta talking about this) or a bug, I didn't have this problem in Arrow OS 12.
    Unfortunately, it's an intended behavior.

    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.

    Boot to recovery TWRP link

    All should be aware there's a newer TWRP by brigudav: 'twrp-3.6.1_11-2-surya-22.05-fix.img' (check https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=329007).

    To anyone complaining about TWRP decryption for OTAs

    Once the ROM is installed for the first time, flash ArrowOS Recovery.

    OTA updates will now work flawlessly and automatically, without needing to be decrypted.
    No entering passcodes, nothing, it just reboots, installs the OTA then boots up again.
    TWRP 3.6.1-11 by brigudav installs Arrow 12 OTAs without any problems for me

    I did. Removed lock screen before installation, formated everything and installed the ROM :/ Not sure what else to try...
    i thnik you do something wrong.

    Make a clean flash!
    Download last ArrowOS 12.1 bulid Link
    Download last FW Link
    Boot to recovery TWRP link

    Flash FW
    Flash ArrowsOS
    Format data and type YES (not wipe).
    Reboot
    Done!

    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

    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?
