As you know build is free but building ROM needs a server. And Maintaining source and device stuff needs a server and it's pretty expensive for a student. It will be really helpful and appreciated if you donate or contribute to us. Also if you have any queries related to donation you can freely message -> Saurav (Founder & lead Dev)

I just tried Arrow OS on my whyred device, and destroyed the system by trying to enable encryption. Is it a general thing with android 12 on whyred that encryption is not possible (yet)?

1) How is Arrow OS 12?
2) Is encryption bad or necessary?
3) I watched this YouTube video where he said that Derpfest is the best as of now, what do you say?
Both ArrowOs and Derpfest are good rom though but You can try my latest build Project-Elixir v1.4.. I improved alot.

Encryption is good thing if we stayed with one rom only.. If we trying to switch to another rom we need to format internal storage to remove encryption.. which become headache for normal user.. But as of now no custom recovery supports encryption with Android 12 on whyred

First of all tks for a good rom for our forgotten devices by xiaomi...

Any way on this rom to remove the anoying google search bar from home screen?

Why did u use gocam instead of the "standard" ones? (aka miui)

Used OTA to update, worked great and is running smoothly atm.
Thanks for review . I hope you like it..
Btw there is no way to hide google search bar from home screen as it is because of pixel launcher..
You can try some other launchers like nova launcher.. which have option to hide google search bar..

I tried with miui camera but its not working great as some bugs are there with video recording.. animations etc..
Its because miui camera not supports a12 aosp rom and its not getting further updates to support aosp so better to provide updates with gcamgo which works perfect.. and for better photography use Gcam which you can find on telegram channel: https://t.me/Gcamdownloadswhyred

I configured the phone but my wife needed one (my kid put hers in the toilet, lol) so i gave whyred to her and bought a Poco X3 Pro for me.

Ok, now i understood why most of the recent roms are comming with GoCam... And yeah, i'll try Gcam later.

About the google search bar, that's a bummer, i was even thinking on trying PixysOS but i saw that they also are using pixel launcher so i recon no search bar removal... :cautious:

BTW, i keep trying to enter the support telegram but can't, was it deleted? When u released the first version of the rom i got in support telegram but now i can't, last thing i can remember saying to someone on it was to not ask for OTAs... Was i banned for that or wht??
