One thing that's important to mention though: Pixel props were removed in the latest version, so if you want perks like unlimited google photos storage you'll have to flash extra modules for it.
Thanks for the heads up. That's cool with me. I don't use photo backup at all anyway.

So I'll move to Arrow OS. Which firmware is recommended? Coming from AOSP extended. Before flashing Arrow OS I'll do a clean install of latest MIUI and then go from there.

For future updates i prefer dirty flash as far it's possible. Or is a bigger update in the pipeline which needs a clean flash?

To correct my previous statement about props: unlimited photos storage still works on the gapps version of the rom. It only no longer works on the vanilla version.

As for your questions, Android 13 will probably require a clean flash, so if you are satisfied with your current rom I suggest you stick with it. I could not find any information about the required firmware; I think the latest one should be fine.

Based on this site: https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/archive/miui/surya/

latest MIUI image is
POCO X3 NFC GlobalStableFastbootV13.0.1.0.SJGMIXM12.04.9 GB2022-07-25

I'm just a bit confused because I thought the device code wouldn't change. Like before I used RJGMIXM, but latest version is SJGMIXM. I red a few pages before that someone flashed V12.5.8. Now I wonder if I should / can install V12.0.1.0.

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.

Working perfectly fine for me. Never had a problem like that.

A clean flash would solve your problem for sure

This behavior starts right after a clean flash so it doesn't solve it unfortunately.
Which firmware are you on?
Are you using GApps or vanilla version of the ROM?

Like I said, I don't have that problem. Notifications arrive immediately and the screen lights up the second I unlock it.

I did a clean flash when 12.1 came out (flashed latest MIUI fastboot ROM, installed TWRP and flashed GApps version) and never had a problem with the ROM. Everything works, no delays or sudden restarts

This device always have screen turn on wake up delay. It's ridiculous that my Redmi Note 8T doesn't have this issue be it MIUI, be it custom ROM.

Hi guys,
I've an issue with the MESSAGES stock app.

Very very very rarely I use SMS. That's why I've noticed just today. Probably it's an old and known problem, I don't know.

Anyway I've noticed that if the phone is on my desk, in standby, screen off and somebody sends to me an SMS, the phone doesn't do anything...

No sound, no vibration, no notifications at all. If I turn it on, immediately it vibrates or play a ringtone to show me the notification ( but maybe the SMS arrived 1 hour before ).


It's a known problem? How to solve it in order to obtain normal notifications immediately when the SMS arrives?


Thanks all.
Just to highlight my old post... I've still this problem... :( Nobody else?

Will we see a return of the battery charging management setting sooner or later? I was using that quite a fair bit before updating to this version

    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.
