Didn't even realize the 12.1 builds were live.. for the people that installed, any issues? I might hold off until OTA is pushed, just in case 12.1 isn't really ready yet

12.1 doesnt have major issues on my device. but be wary that it's fresh new and may contain some bugs so i dont suggest updating yet.new build is out today tho.

the latest build is good so far but the placement of status bar icons and clock is slightly off compared to last build

thanks for the reply, yeah I think I'll hold off until dev pushes an ota.. only really wanted to update because on last 12.0 build I've been getting some issues where all my notifications aren't coming through, and sometimes they come in all at once when I wake the screen or unlock the device.

I didnt have notification delays on the last 12 build but on current 12.1 build.
This is strange cuz my SMS is delayed for 15 mins and steam guard didnt even show up
Will try clearing cache later

Is anyone having really severe battery drain all of a sudden?

I've been on the Android 12 version for a while, I just tried updating to the 12.1 build and it's the same. I suspect I have a hardware issue going on actually, but...Gonna try a clean install and/or other roms to figure it out.

Clean installed 12.1, no change. The only apps I see in battery usage that could be causing it is qtiservices, qti-iwlan, CNEApp. Can't find much information on these.

Edit :- Working after restarting the phone.
Thank you for such stable Android 12.1 rom. I switch but at the end comes to this rom. Light and so stable. Lag and jitter free

    Does everyone who have flashed this ROM actually go through the process of extracting the boot.img via Python???

    I heavily dislike working with code not because it's tedious, but because something always goes wrong, and today is no exception.

    I followed the instructions to a tee and did everything it told me, but yet still I get this error: SyntaxError: invalid character '·' (U+00B7)

    There is literally no '·' in the filename so I have no idea what it wants from me..... I give up.

    I do, I have jumped back and forth from this ROM (now I'm back on it).

    Always thought extracting the boot.img was tedious as well, why can't we just have a separate download link or something? I'm sure it would encourage more users to use this ROM.

    Nonetheless, I set up a python environment for the sake of extracting boot.img in case I need it for the future.

    Unfortunately I can't help diagnose errors (not proficient with python myself), but I found success by installing Anaconda, then installing the required libraries through there.

    I didn't plan to write any Q&As but it seems necessary to drop some notes here. (Last updated: 2021-11-29)

    Q: How to flash?
    A: Extract the boot.img using payload dumper, flash it into your device via fastboot then reboot into recovery. ADB sideload the firmware, reboot to recovery and sideload again to ensure that both slots have been updated. Lastly, wipe the userdata partition and reboot to system.

    Q: Root solution?
    A: The canary variant of Magisk is recommended. Download and rename this file to .zip, then sideload it in recovery. Reboot to system and install the original app-debug.apk file.

    Q: How to preserve Magisk after an OTA?
    A: Install the OTA but do not reboot immediately. Open the Magisk app and tap the `Install to inactive slot` option.

    Q: Custom kernel?
    A: Play at your own risk. The only supported alternative is NeptuneKernel.

    Q: Ah! It's extremely laggy after a reboot, halp!
    A: Open the camera app and tell me if it's resolved.

    Q: Soft reboots on Netflix? (#325)
    A: Choose a color mode other than `Saturated` to activate HDR normally.

    Q: Why can't I find this feature...balabala...I saw it on Arrow 11.0
    A: Please, wait for ArrowOS team to bring them back.

    Q: Bug! Here's a bug!
    A: Upload the log or, describe the steps to reproduce, in detail.

    Q: Any support group?
    A: Here.

    Can please somebody provide me a noob friendly flash instruction manual (exact steps to be followed)? I just bought a used OP7 Pro and it's the first time to flash a custom ROM on it. Thanks!
    The first Q&A here already gives all the necessary hints but let's go a bit more into detail. First of all, you need to download and successfully install (along with all its needed dependencies) Payload Dumper. I'll explain how to do it directly on your smartphone under Termux. It's just an adaptation of the guide that you can find here which didn't work out of the box for me, probably because of the different Termux version, this leading also to different versions for the packages, especially Python and its modules. I exclude mistakes by the original writer instead.
    Just a couple of hints before beginning... When you would update the sources for the packages it would ask you for just one confirmation (I couldn't avoid it, at least to my knowledge): just press enter (which means choosing the default selection) and it would go on with the process. For what concerns the commands which would follow in my guide, you can just copy and paste them from here or complete them with the TAB key you find just above the keyboard under Termux (if you've ever used a terminal, you know what I mean).
    1. Download the latest ArrowOS 12 rom here (please don't forget to select the right version because the defualt selection is ArrowOS 11, at least for now)
    2. Extract payload.bin from the downloaded archive (the built-in file manager app is just enough) and leave it in the "Downloads" folder
    3. Download Termux here and install it
    4. Load Termux and issue these commands:
    5. Code:
      termux-setup-storage
      apt update && apt upgrade -y
      pkg install python2 -y
      pip2 install --upgrade pip
      cd storage/downloads
      pkg install wget -y
      wget https://github.com/vm03/payload_dumper/archive/refs/heads/master.zip
      unzip master.zip
      cd payload_dumper-master
      pip install -r requirements.txt
      pip install backports.lzma
      python2 ./payload_dumper.py ../payload.bin
    6. As we need only boot.img, don't let the whole process to complete. Just press CTRL (above the keyboard under Termux) then the c key
    7. Assuming you're on Windows, download and install this
    8. Transfer the so extracted boot.img (you find it in the "output" folder inside the parent folder "payload_dumper-master" which, in its turn, is inside the "Downloads" folder on your smartphone) to your pc putting it inside the folder where Minimal ADB and Fastboot has just been installed (Windows UAC will ask you for confirmation, just say yes)
    9. Press WIN+R then write cmd and confirm with enter. After that, put your OP 7 Pro in fastboot mode and issue these commands:
    10. Code:
      cd "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Minimal ADB and Fastboot"
      fastboot flash boot boot.img
    11. Reboot your OP 7 Pro into the now installed ArrowOS recovery and follow the instructions of post #2 from this thread which I've linked at the very beginning
    If you don't know how to put your OP 7 Pro into fastboot and recovery modes, just make a Google search and you'll find tons of tutorials.
    It has taken a lot for me to write this step by step guide and I can confirm it is perfectly fine so, should something go not as expected, please read it again because there aren't mistakes in it. Have a nice day! :)
