Since Android 11, apps need permission to access all files (the config files in this case).

Go to your Android settings → Apps → Google Camera → Permissions → Files and Media access and select "Allow management of all files".
it already had those permissions, when i double tap the space between camera and photo viewer to import xml i get a black small pop up and that's it

Also, stupid question but how do i update via ota?
Just download the new version on your PC and connect your phone via USB. Reboot your phone into recovery --> apply update --> via adb and sideload the new version with minimal adb or something similar via command "adb sideload XYZ.zip".

(XYZ is for the filename you gave to the .zip file)

In-system-OTA is not available yet.

also I haven't rooted since like 2014. Do I just sideload magisk zip on arrow os recovery and then install an apk or do i have to do something else?

Yep just grab magisk canary on topjohnwus github, and adb sideload the app_debug.zip.

Keep in mind tho once you install magisk, you lose the arrow os recovery. I think it's because magisk can't seem to detect the ramdisk for a12.

If you want to flash update after rooting you will need to flash the boot.img back, go to recovery, then sideload update. Reboot recovery so it is in new slot, flash the app_debug.zip for the magisk.

Thank you! one thing. When I update the boot.img i already have will do or do i have to use payload dumper to extract it out of every new build?

I used the "show refresh rate" option in dev settings and the refresh rate never goes above 60 when setting min:60 max:90, it basically locks it at 60. Ideally we would want 90 for scrolling and animations and 60 for things like YouTube

Yeah I see the same issue. With min 60 and max 90 thought it would be variable refresh rate and it's not, just locked to 60. For now I'm just setting it to 90hz lol

    Well just went on this ROM... what a great job !! Hope the (January) security patch soon ;)
    Just one thing, the camera is a little bit... well... "poor' regarding the options... I switched for GCam 7.3 (as some people said in this thread) and think it could be great to implement this app as the default camera.
    Camera I recommend you to use gcam 8 or the OnePlus camera 3.3.8 which works great.
    I also attach for those interested Dolby Atmos perfect for ArrowOS 12, for those who want to test it I am attaching the magisk module.

    My Dolby Setting : 7.5, 7, 3.5, -3.5, -2, 2, 6, 5.5, 11, 12

    OnePlus Camera and Gallery ( install as simple apk ) :

    The upcoming update will include the following improvements:

    - Fixed carrier video calling (Thanks @ npv12)
    - Fixed the broken proximity sensor since last official update
    - Optimized dynamic refresh rate
    - Optimized auto brightness
    5
    I always thank the dev for this wonderful ROM that allows a pure vanilla android aosp experience on our 7 Pro. It's really an arrow, stable, light weight, perfect as a daily ROM.

    After latest update screen flickering issue is there @alk3p . Any workaround for this ?

    Edit - Setting maximum and Minimum refresh rate to 90hz solves this. Setting minimum to 60hz causes screen to flicker more
    Has anyone noticed the weird brightness glitch on new build? (5/1)
    Yes there is a brightness glitch. Its fluctuating alot and there is screen flickering issue too.
    Some users asked for the real auto refresh rate, so we implemented this. The flickering you guys found is caused by frequently switching panel modes (Yes, colors under 60Hz / 90Hz are different cuz the vendor could calibrate a panel only once) So, it's clear that the only method to prevent this issue is setting both min/max refresh rate to 90Hz.

    Widewine security is L3 but after coming from oos 11 too.
    Check #331
    If your device has widevine L1 on latest OOS 11 with unlocked bootloader, then it should be the same on ArrowOS.

    Is there any chance to add the possibility to control of vibration strength?
    Probably will not. I personally consider it's redundant.

    When will verizon sim be supported?
    in a few days? pls try tweaking APN preferences first.

    Happy 2022 to everyone and especially to the dev @alk3p , may it be a year full of positivity. We await this first release of 2022 which already promises to be full of interesting fixes from the first day 😍

    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! :)
