Hi,

Latest build Arrow-v11.0-ginkgo-OFFICIAL-20210929-GAPPS breaks encryption in my Xiaomi Redmi Note 8. Back to Arrow-v11.0-ginkgo-OFFICIAL-20210924-GAPPS solves the problem...

Build - September 24th Vanilla
No root
No Encryption
MicroG Installed without Root
No custom kernel (ROM's original kernel)

I have flashed this ROM on last Saturday (It's 6 days now) and so far so good. Followed the exact procedure as the original post says. All files downloaded via the provided links by the developer.

Smooth and great as daily driver. If someone like to give it a try, try it. Recommended. Thank you devs. ❤️

Download F-Droid and install.

Then copy this URL to your phone's clipboard.


Go to F-Droid, then tap on Settings > Repositories > Plus Sign + at the top right corner. Copied URL will automatically assigned to the relevant fields. Of not, add them manually as

URL - https://microg.org/fdroid/repo
Fingerprint - 9BD06727E62796C0130EB6DAB39B73157451582CBD138E86C468ACC395D14165

Tap on Add and make sure it's enabled. (Toggle the button to ON)
Go to f-droid home and pull down (Like in browser) to refresh the repositories.

Now, search for these apps on F-Droid and install them one by one.

1) MicroG Services Core
2) MicroG Services Framework Proxy
3) FakeStore

*If any of these apps are not appear in your search results, probably you did not add the microG repository correctly.

After installing all these apps, restart your device. (Not essential but I did)

Now, Find the MicroG Services Core app on your app launcher and open it. Then go to Self Check at the top and make sure all options has tick (done) marks. If not, tap on that option and give permissions and make it done. 🙂

After checking all options, go back to MicroG Services Core app's home screen. Turn on Google device recognition, Cloud Messaging, Google Safety Net if they are off. Login to your google account if you need. It's optional. (It will not give any output if you logged in successfully.

That's all. 🤘

Hello.

Does anyone use the Zepp app for Amazfit watches on this ROM ?

I noticed one bug.

If I want to add my own photo to the watch display in the Zeep app, unfortunately it doesn't work :-(

After selecting the picture nothing happens.

On other ROMs, however, after selecting the picture, the editor normally pops up in which I crop the picture according to my preferences and then upload it to the watch.

Can anyone who also uses Amazfit and the Zepp app try this ?

Thank you very much.

I wanted to ask the developer if he is working on the new android 12, I really like the ArrowOS and it is for me the best I have ever tried, I hope it continues to be developed and that on the other hand OrangeFox also updates to keep up with the Android 12 encryption. I would like a response from the developer on the current state of development Thanks for the great job!

Is this ROM still under development or has it stopped? No updates for almost a month now what is going on?

By the way, there is currently a problem with the sd card. For some reason the file system breaks shortly after installing the card and won't let me write to it.

I have tried with two different models and the same thing keeps happening. I am now using my phone without sd card. Does anyone know anything?

A12 beta is out since today, anyone has tried it? I am waiting for vanilla build.

@PinguiNUX
I have no problem with sdcard. Are you sure it's not an hardware issue?
No, not a hardware problem because i tried it with other rom and recovery mode, and it works perfectly.

From what I've read on other channels (Telegram Arrow OS chat group), I'm not the only one who has that sd card problem with this ROM.

I'm going to try to do a clean install with the latest build of this ROM. Which apparently was released just yesterday and I'll see what happens.

    I'm using ginkgo [RN8] - Chinese variant. ( not willow [RN8T] )

    I didn't know that only Chinese variants are experiencing that issue until I see this thread.

    I don't know about the latest update but fast charging do not work in LineageOS 17.1 too.

    But it works in ArrowOS 10 which I'm currently using. I really want to try ArrowOS 11 but there is no forum or support thread for it. Google search redirect me here. IDK why.
    Since it's not allowed to promote that special website where you can find a kernel that might be working, i can surely tell you what to search for: look out for 'ryzen kernel' on eg Google. This was often mentioned as working with fast charging on different 11 roms. But keep in mind that this is just a loose suggestion and it's a try and error thing on your own risk. There are also a lot of TG groups out there, where you can find answers too if interested. Cheers

    use the downloadlink on first page (OP) there you will get arrowos 11 too.
    That I know, I would like to read the thread about ArrowOS 11, just to check bug reports and news :)

    This thread covers both. Device-side development for 11 is stopped for now, since 12 is actively developed. In case a critical bug fix is available, it will be pushed to 11. 11 ROM will still be updated monthly with ASB (security patches).

    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.
