Solved: factory reset. No idea if it's a new bug, the only thread I found about it is on reddit in a Pixel sub from a few months ago.

Installed 12.1 last night, clean install (wiped everything, formatted data) over global firmware 12.5.7.

Has anyone else had internet connection issues?

I can connect to the home wifi and also 4g, but get absolutely no internet. I've tried everything I can think of, from forget to dns server to anything else I've come across.

I am having a few mildly annoying issues since I updated from 12.0 latest build to 12.1 ( I am behind a build back from the current one, but this issue has happened since I installed 12.1 a couple months ago - clean flashed and everything)

1- sometimes the phone refuses to charge and even with the charger connected and with the message "charging quickly" being shown, it won't charge at all. Need a system reboot to start charging.

2- the access point feature doesn't work at all. It keeping turning off wifi, resetting itself and eventually the system UI will lag, needing a system reboot

I also randomly have random issues with video players in general lagging the system UI but the previous issues are more important.

Anyone having those same issues mind sharing any advice?

There is no upgrade path from the 12 to the 12.1 build.

You have to backup all your apps and data (using Migrate for example) and do a clean flash with the latest build. All of your problems will be gone

No buddy, i mention "upgraded" as for I did a clean flash (like explicitly written between the parenthesis) and the installed 12.1. Nowhere did I say I dirty flashed it.

I'm using the same build you do and have none of that.

The charging problem can be caused by dust or dirt.

But the rest is caused either a Magisk module or one of your apps causing this behavior and I really think a clean flash would solve the problem.

Can you upload a video of the WiFi tethering problem?

It definitely isn't caused by dust or dirt. It only happens if I charge my phone to 100% then use it for a few minutes then put it in the charger again. A reboot is needed and it starts charging as normal without reconnecting the charging cable.

    20220724 build is up. Dirty flashing over 220623 worked fine.

    Now we have July security patch level. The rest of the changelog is on the official site

    anyone with Android12 to reply? :(
    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

    Is it possible to update? I have 2022-06-15 and I want 2022-06-30.

    I tried to OTA update but it didn't work because I had TWRP.

    I searched in this post about updating with TWRP and they all talk about decryption. Is this needed for update? (My main storage is encrypted because I see weird folders when I navigate there in recovery).

    Can I flash the ArrowOs recovery and update automatically? In that case, where do I get the recovery img?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Download it from the ArrowOS web page and then install it from TWRP - latest version which decrypts data, if an earlier version use an sdcard, or alternatively sideload in TWRP from your PC

    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.

    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.
