When asking to confirm a bug or unexpected behavior, please be as detailed as you can. Give specific information - what was expected to happen, what actually happened, provide other information like if you noticed it happening in specific circumstances, etc.

Short answer: no. No problems.
When i want to turn on the screen i use fingerprint to unlock the phone. The screen turns on but it shows the keypad to unlock. Sometimes it works normally. But most of the times it has this behavior. I have clean flashed this rom. I updated the phone firmware but the problem still persists

It goes to the keypad for me once every 24 hrs. It's just a security measure.

You will also get this after a reboot. Do you reboot/shutdown your phone?

Hello people. Anyone installed this and can share his experience?

VANILLA build
Size: 1014.05 MB

Type: Official

Version: v12.1

Date: 2022-07-25

I am on official 12.5.8 with unlocked bootloader and thinking to get rid of the MIUI. My Poco is my daily driver so I need the most stable rom for everyday usage with good battery life and bug free on banking apps.
would you recommend ArrowOS 12.1 or should i search for something else?
Thanks :)

I am unable to set up fingerprints (close the UI automatically). Is it happening to anyone?

Edited: Solved by enabling “Don’t keep activities” option in Developer Options

ArrowOS is a good choice but so are Lineage and CrDroid.

Lineage had a few problems recently but they have been fixed, I hope. It also has the least customizations which should help with battery life and stability.

Most customizations are in CrDroid. ArrowOS is somewhere in the middle and it tries to bring Pixel look & feel and features to our phone.

If you read back the last 3 - 4 pages of the ROMs mentioned above, you won't find many complaints about battery life or stability.

All 3 ROMs will be better than MIUI

I don't know. Maybe there's something running in the background.
Give it a day or two and see if anything improves.

For all I know, free RAM is wasted RAM on Android. So if multitasking and speed are fine, there's nothing to worry about

Passing on a tip I was given recently when facing a similar problem: if you're rooted, run top in an ADB shell or Android terminal and look for any strange processes hogging resources... just kill them and then wait and check for crashes. If nothing happens, you're good.

I was having a couple of extraneous processes being launched by a Magisk startup script that were eating the battery and the system UI just showed Android OS doing it, BTW.

    Is anyone else experiencing delayed notifications? I've always experienced it, but it's gotten a lot worse with the last few updates. I should also add that now when the phone has been sleeping for a while, when I press the power button it takes several seconds for the screen to light up. All sorts of notifications are practically useless now and I receive them much later, sometimes only when I wake the screen do I receive notifications that may be over half an hour old.
    Me too.

    hello all, i am having a 0.6% battery use per hour while i am sleeping.

    phone is also 95% on deep sleep while using that much battery.

    what is your experience?
    Pretty much the same here.

    If I'm not mistaken, you can disable "double tap to wake" and "ambient display" to reduce battery use a little more.

    PixelProps was removed in today's update...
    So, will there be a limit on the use of Google Photos now?

    Hi, is there call recorder built it?
    No. If you want call recording, install one of the files from here:



    One file is for Magisk or you can use the one for TWRP. After flashing, you have to give the dialer all permissions and enable automatic call recording in Settings - Sounds and vibration

    I know that the pixel prob is missing from the recent update.

    But the problem is that GAPPS still recognizes the device as a pixel.
    google photo high quality save option not showing However, it is actually being deducted from storage capacity.

    I think the ROM should either completely remove the pixel prob... or not deduct the storage capacity as before.

    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.
