Hi forks, I'm sorry for being inactive in maintaining ArrowOS for OnePlus 7 Pro, since I'm extremely busy with real-life stuff. For now I do not have any plans for ArrowOS 13 since some newly added features to this branch have broken the simplicity (and to a certain extent, code quality) which once made ArrowOS my cup of tea.

For users that are looking for alternatives, I'll recommend LineageOS 20 which started rolling out last month. Also, if you still want to choose a ROM I maintain, here's a link to my personal fork of CAF (now CodeLinaro) AOSP. No customizations, no extra features that a custom ROM user will expect for, no support, just a minimal and stable system adapted for my daily driving.

Thanks to all of you for the continuous support!

Hi alk3p, thanks for your contribution of Op7 roms. Does your new rom require OOS 12 firmware? Or it still uses OOS 11 firmware?

    Just wondering if you've installed this and if so which firmware did you use. Looked on GitHub but unfortunately didn't see anything about firmware.

    Reserved.

    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! :)
