WHAT DOESN'T WORK?
  • You tell me

I want to give some brief feedback on the rom @palaych .


First, I need to mention that it's a great project and the system is running very fast and fluently (coming from an Xiaomi Mi6 with resurrection remix). As I am not a coder, I can barely overestimate how much work is involved in such a project. Big thank you to the developer team!

The installation was done according to the tutorial: Unlocked phone, then sideload of the ROM via ADB. I got some issues due to the installation process being stuck, but the second or third attempt was successful and ArrowOS booted.

Secondly, I want to to write what doesn't work (for me).
(1) Earpiece speaker
I can't get any sound from the earpiece speaker. I can be heard speaking, so the mic works. When I turn on the main speaker, I can hear the caller. This is not working neither in Whatsapp calls nor in normal phone call mode. When I receive a call, I need to change to either bluetooth headset or speaker to hear the other person.
(3) Alarm clock sound
The phone will - independent from what I chose in the settings - use some strange alarm clock sound in the morning that I can not even find in the settings.
I can not reproduce this when I put the alarm some minutes in the future (then my chosen alarm tone will go off). Maybe this is connected to the random switch offs. When put an alarm and switch the phone off, the alarm won't wake up the phone. When I switch the phone on again after the alarm, the alarm will go off after the boot and play that unknown alarm sound (not the one I chose).
(4) Switching off
The phone seems to switch itself off from time to time. I never caught it doing that, but sometimes after work or in the morning it is completely off and I need to switch it on. Battery is always between 30-80%, so it can't be the battery.
(5) Bluetooth sound (music and podcast) did not work and just gave some clicking noise. Calls via Bluetooth headset were working well at the same time. Music and podcasts worked after disabling Bluetooth A2DP harware offload in the developer settings. Thanks a lot for the hint here in the thread! (my BT headset is a Jabra Elite Sport)
(6) Proximity sensor (?)
When I e.g. listen to a voice message on Whatsapp, it's working via the speaker. When I hold it to my ear to try out the earpiece speaker, the sensor doesn't do anything but just go on playing through the speaker. Also the display doesn't turn off. It just doesn't change anything

Anyway, great rom, but some issues. I will work on those and try to fix them, but probably change the rom as I want an OS as my daily driver and especially the headpiece issue is not acceptable. Before doing that, as I seem to have more bugs than most people, I'll try a reinstallation these days, dependent on when I find time.

Are you on latest firmware ? Because if you did a clean flash I can't see any reason for all the bugs you're mentioning, save for a bad firmware version.

Yes you have to do it! This is necessary if you want to have a fully functioning room.
Thanks for the hint, I'll do so.
Most issues posted here can be resolved by sideloading the recommended firmware. Please read the steps carefully.
Many thanks.

The first post says that the "MIUI S" Firmware is required. I guess I can just use the most recent one, as I don't find what exactly "MIUI S" is.
So I'll flash this one, right:

After firmware update, should I also reinstall arrowOS?
I did the update now and it did not change the issues I was facing with ArrowOS.

Same problem here, after the latest update and disabling hardware offload, my wired headphones won't produce any sound any more...
Oops... Same problem here.
Did you found any solution?

I've tried to enable/disable things in devs options - no effect.

But, it looks like sound is not disabled - it's just OS pluggin in/pluggin off wired speakers every second.
Youtube videos are played with stutters, when I connect wired headhones.

Hello all, I am testing Arrow Os 12.1. It's great ROM, in my opinion two options are missing.
1. Unlock by fingerprint button via press, currently see only way by touch .
2. Switch off keypad when locked screen.

Both options are necessary as in pocket randomly screen gets locked by touching fingerprint button and dialing randomly numbers via keypad.
I tried find these options in the ROM but unfortunately can't see.

It looks like fingerprint by press was merged on the 27th, must have just missed the latest build. Fingers crossed for the next one.

Strike that, its in options under screen lock! Thanks @palaych !

Hi guys. Im on ArrowOS 12.1 on Poco F3 and I have a problem with Zepp App. The app keeps asking me to complete my profile every time I reboot or shut down my phone so I have to reconnect my smartwatch manually. Do you have a solution for this?

    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 👍

    __________________________________________________

    First installation (Clean flash):

    You need PC with adb/fastboot tools.
    Download boot, vendor_boot and rom zip:

    2. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PgtI8bOV1yjmTZJ7euP6xDFzMszY6AXb/view?usp=sharing
    3. https://arrowos.net/download/alioth

    Reboot in fastboot. Flash arrowos recovery (boot.img and vendor_boot.img):

    fastboot flash boot_ab boot_alioth.img fastboot flash vendor_boot_ab vendor_boot_alioth.img

    Reboot in ArrowOS Recovery:

    fastboot reboot recovery

    Make format data (Factory reset -> Format data).

    Flash ROM (Apply update -> Apply from ADB):


    adb sideload name.zip

    Follow what show on device, should be ... Step 1/2 -> 2/2, then flashing ended, can reboot device in system. (In cmdline: If the process succeeds the output will stop at 47% and report `adb: failed to read command: Success`. In some cases it will report `adb: failed to read command: No error` which is also fine!")

    If you want install separate gapps on vanilla buildtype, after flash ROM:

    Installation can take up to 1 hour, on 50% will stuck, it normal, just waiting (Why? - Don't forget, you now have a/b devices, a new update is installed in the background in an inactive slot, without recovery. That's why it's taking so long. Don't like? Flash manually via recovery.)

    ___________________________________________________


    Update arrow-12.0 -> arrow-12.1
    Install updates via recovery (dirty flash):

    You need PC with adb/fastboot tools.

    1) Download new build and reboot into Recovery

    Look on device:
    WIll show "Signature verification error" -> Tap "Install anyway" -> Waiting installation end.
