It's unofficial ? Will it need a clean flash later (when stable comes out) ?

Very happy with this ROM! So far the only issues I've encountered are:
  1. Issues with Nova Launcher constantly crashing
  2. Weird issue on setup (I did a clean install) where part of the Google Pay setup process had white text on a white background (so most things were illegible)
  3. Padding issue with the battery/network/etc. icons on the top right (lot of extra padding from the right corner/edge)
Other than that, installed Nikita Gcam so the camera experience is good, no Bluetooth issues so far, Material You coloring is working well with Muzei + Google Earth plugin. Will be sticking with the A12 build(s) going forward.

    Seems like the ROM for Poco F3 is discontinued. I have blotooth streaming not working at all after latest update from 1 of November and also updater can't connect the server to get next updates.

    I didn't know that the latest updater won't work, but it's not that hard to update manually:
    • turn on USB debugging in developer mode
    • enable device modification from PC
    • adb recovery reboot
    • select Apply Update/Apply from ADB
    • adb sideload Arrow-v12.1-alioth-OFFICIAL-*.zip
    • when it's done, reboot to system
    Just wanted to point out that step 3 should be:
    adb reboot recovery

    Hi, I manually checked for updates today but it showed "Bad gateway, could not connect to server". Is this a problem with the server or the OS? Thanks.
    The link is posted in message #1997.

    Doesn't work for me, it seems that the FW have nothing to do with this. so I reverted back to V13.0.5.0.SKHMIXM. Still have no idea why is this just happen in several devices



    Please share if you have something related to this
    Nothing else that I can think of.
    Not sure if this is worth a try but mine is the aloithin (Import from India - 11x) so I flash the alioth_in_global_images_V13.0.X.X (alioth_in_global_images_V13.0.8.0.SKHINXM)
    I've had issues with the global FW and also plain alioth FW.
    My own troubleshooting made me realise that the FW needs specific hardware to work so maybe check you device specific FW. Good luck 👍

    hi i have question guys, i flash gapps rom and my storage used 11,6gb for system, its normal? sorry for the frist time using custom rom xiaomi
    yes it is, no need to worry about that

    Definitely on the recommended firmware but I'm also getting the location bug. Location services just isn't turning off.

    Even a reboot doesn't stop it. Only way is to turn location off.

    you're not alone, I hope the maintainer aware of this issue.
