It's already off.
I'll wait for the next build and see what happens.
Edit: solved with new update. Thx.

I put my phone into silent mode when I'm going to bed, but at some point during the night it goes into normal mode and I'm woken by an email.

It may not be ROM related, but just wondering if anyone else has suffered this.


ETA: It was a rogue Task in Tasker that was trying to put the phone into silent mode (which fails under later versions of Android).

Hey everyone,

I'm really interesed in installing this ROM, though I have a few questions about it:

1. Is fast charging working as it does on MIUI?
2. Is camera quality better than MIUI, and does it have as many options (AI, Portrait mode, Night mode, Ultra-wide lens mode)? I will use GCam, of course (does someone have a good version to suggest?)
3. Can I use GPay (or SafetyNet more generally) + Widevine L1 with Magisk? I currently can, with Xiaomi.eu ROM.
4. Is battery life as good as MIUI?

Thanks :)

Thanks, I'm guessing a rogue app. Just need to work out which one...

I finally dirty upgraded to 12.1 today after Google Play's messages about being out of date started to get too annoying. I think it works fine so far, but I definitely notice that some settings got messed up or don't exist anymore. :( This sucks since I had customized and styled it to be to my liking in various ways.

I had configured my homescreen with custom colors for which only predefined colors seem to exist now, which is a minor annoyance. A larger one is that, even after disabling the Google app to remove the bar at the bottom, I seem to have one less row of icons as the scroll bar above the permanent line of icons is eating up a lot of extra space. (Maybe I found a way to reduce it in the past but if it still exists, I am failing to re-find that setting.)

Finally it seems that the status bar icons aren't as configurable as before. You apparently have to take everything of a theme or nothing compared to cherrypicking the icons you liked. But it gets worse: I can't seem to find the circular battery indicator that was in 12.0 whatsoever anymore (which was a circle outline with an ever increasing chunk missing the more battery is lost), which has been the only battery indicator I've been able to stomach ever since I first saw it because of its sheer elegance.

Thanks for the hard work and the upgrade, though!

1. Yes - MIUI is better but not by huge margin.
2. No - MIUI camara beats any GCam imo
3. Non-root uses so cannot comment
4. Better

Overall it is clean and stable but if you are playing games a lot then Stock MIUI based ROMs are better.
For clean UI, stock memoery management, better notifications and Android 12 features, go for this ROM.

Anyone having problem with mobile data speed? I selected the Preferred network type to 'NR/LTE/TDSCDMA/CDMA/EvDo/GSM/WCDMA' but still getting on average speed at 500kbps - 5mbps it is inconsistent whilst on Stock ROM I got around 190mbps - 230mbps of Preferred network type to 'Prefer 5G'. I recently installed Arrow-12.1 GApps build on clean flash using TWRP.

I'm currently on crDroid 8.7 with skkk TWRP 3.8.3, can I do a clean install of ArrowOS via skkk TWRP or is it necessary/better to install using the fastboot method?

Thanks for you answer, I installed before you posted this hahaha. :)
So far, I like it! It's really smooth and I like AOSP in general. Gaming isn't too much of a problem for me since I almost do not play.

Though, there are some issues I want to solve:
1. How to disable double-tap to wake?
2. Is it possible to reduce the 4G/LTE icon? I think it's too big in the status bar.
3. I can't see the pictures I took with GCam directly through the app. It tells me to install Google Photos and I don't really want to... Should I install it anyway?

Thanks :)

1. Setting -> display -> Tap to wake
Setting -> display -> Lock Screen -> double tap to sleep on lockscreen

2. No

3. Google Photos would give unlimited storage like Pixel devices which is a benefit of these AOSP roms.

Bro can you add a toggle for refresh rate in the quick setting panel? Games are very laggy in 120hz mode and only look smooth in 60hz mode. I keep having to navigate to settings to change this.

    I was with recommended firmware when I've flashed around May... By that time ArrowOS was really good. Only in like... 2/3 last updates things started to go down the hill, at least for me.
    Please READ instructions carefully before blaming! Some updates require newer firmware.
    If unsure, always refer to first page of thread.

    Hello


    Thanks for the best rom and your great work

    After the last update the battery usage markedly increased and the phone is always warm .. android sistem is eating 33% of it.
    Previous build it was easy to have 10 hours screen on time within two days, but now just after 4hours screen on time within 18 hours of total , my battery is only 28%


    The notification panel is a bit laggy
    2
    Fan of the work here. Thanks a lot!
    I reconize the bluetooth issue after the update from 19/8 - got an other update 22/8 with no change log. And a solution would be to flash new firmware? Is that possible without dataloss cuz the Google Backup doesnt work anymore after 19/8..

    Also super exited to see that Arrow OS 13 is coming!! Great work!!
    Flashing a new firmware won't cause data loss. Do it through TWRP or ArrowOs recovery.
