Your assumption to be encrypted may be wrong: I am definitely unencrypted (!) and do have the same message in the recovery since there is nothing to decrypt (as one can easily imagine).
As far as I know, the ROM is encrypted by default, I'm talking about ArrowOS v11 and I never used Disable dm-verity.

I attached a photo of how internal storage looks like in TWRP.

Hi! I have updated to the last version and now Samsung Pay app doesn't let me to log in. It says that a unauthorized change was made to my phone. I was using this rom before the update and It was working fine so I don't understand what happened, I just updated the rom. Does anyone know why this could be? I need Samsung Pay to use it on my watch

Thank you for your work, can I bother you with 2 small problems I'm having? 5ghz wifi is still unable to connect or drops after a day or so - and I am getting a lot of echo in voip and volte calls. (on the other side, people are telling me there is an echo)

Nice and smooth ROM.
Anyone seeing a space under the keyboard while typing in Gesture Navigation mode, please use the magisk module HideNavBar from Github and the extra space will be gone, preferably select Full Screen instead of immersive.

Note: This is not a default module in the search of Magisk App, so you will need to download from the release section of the Github and import it in Magisk.

If it can help the dev: It was same for me as well, so I reset Network Preferences, and it worked for few days until it stopped showing 5Ghz connections at all.

To my understanding, a non-encrypted ROM can have its files and everything related accessible in recovery mode even if there is password/ pattern set on phone.
While an encrypted ROM will always ask your password/ pattern in recovery mode. So no one can access your data even if they have your phone and have installed TWRP or any recovery somehow.

Are you using Root? Magisk?
In such cases, the payment applications and gateways reject access.
If it is magisk, use the Magisk Hide feature to hide root/ magisk from specific applications.

Hello!

If I'm not mistaken, on android 10 or 11,we could lock some apps through the security options. It seems that this option was removed now on 12. Is that a normal thing overall from Android 12, or just a removed feature?

    I tried to flash the ROM through ADB sideload but it didn't work as it was too late for me. Is there anything I could do to save my data?

    I back up my data before flashing any ROM, but this time I created the backup on the internal storage by fault and didn't realize this until it's too late.

    TWRP doesn't ask me for a password now, I tried most of the new versions and the one I was working with before flashing the ROM.

    I get this error at the beginning "E: Unable to decrypt FBE device"

    When I use this command over ADB "adb shell twrp decrypt password", I get "Failed to decrypt data."
    I haven't been in that situation before but I'm not sure if there's anything you can do to save that data.

    ArrowOS 12.0
    Redmi Note 8 (ginkgo) / 8T (willow)

    ABOUT
    ArrowOS
    is an AOSP/CAF based open source project started with the aim of keeping things simple, clean and neat, both for the Android system and users. We understand the pain of unnecessary and sometimes rarely used mods/features being shipped with custom roms nowadays which may end up causing battery drains and/or memory leaks & crashes. This is being strictly avoided on our side keeping everything to a bare minimum, delivering stable performance all the time without destroying the AOSP interface. With users getting more used to tweaks and features, we added just the right features and customisations that will be actually USEFUL at the end of the day.
