Get the dmesg log right after the reboot, depending on the kernel, you might need to be rooted to do so

Doesn't help. It's an issue with the scheduling for the little cores. As soon as I set it to performance the stutters stop.

schedtune.boost for foreground set to 10 seems to make it go away.
You (devs) need to tweak this. You're probably trying too hard to optimize for battery while making sacrifices to performance.

It has turned off twice today, it does not restart, the screen goes black and I have to restart, I think that is when the cell phone data is active

I have unencrypted my data as I was installing the latest update. Does this mean from now on I can use the OTA update function without having to wipe data anymore?

There is a new TWRP update that can handle encrypted data. But you have to clean flash first (flash new TWRP then clean flash) or it will bootloop. Check this thread.

I don't know about OTA update. I don't use it anymore. IMO it's safer to update using recovery.

Right but my question is if the data is unencrypted there should be no issue whatsoever trying to install an OTA right? I wanna make sure I won't have to wipe anything or be stuck in a bootloop.

Don't use OTA for your convenience. I tried once, and I got bootloop. Unless you're prepared losing your data, you can try. With unencrypted device, you must flash DFE after each update.

You can download update using OTA, reboot to recovery manually, find new update in "/data/arrowos_updates" and flash it.

so if my device is unencrypted my steps are:
1)download OTA through update function, but don't update through the system
2)reboot to recovery
3) flash DFE
4) flash OTA from update folder

Am I missing anything?

    i ran into a few problems;

    1.
    During a phone call while the call is in progress, if a notification comes and it makes an audible notification in the background, all the sound of the phone disappears.
    It only fixes when I turn the phone off and then back on.
    2.
    In both Spotify and Shazam or music applications like this, the phone is randomly reset.
    3.
    Horizontal noise lines appear on some videos on Instagram.

    in summary;
    it has audio and video based (possibly codec) issues.

    Yes the A11 is stable , no rebooting here , no problems what so ever
    Here's the problem with custom rom community. Whenever a new android release comes out, everyone is trying to jump into that wagon as soon as possible along with all the bugs.
    I think we, users are to blame for that because we want to use the newest version. But when we realize the bugs, the public outcry begins :)
    Without new kernel sources from xiaomi that compatible with the android release, the devs can't do much.
    A stable Android 11 is better than a buggy Android 13 :)

    Hi people. In this ROM, I'm getting this tint videos in Instagram. Any Solution? Or I'm gonna wait for other update?
    1
    Is this problems with today update from 05.09, or older version of rom?
    Older and new. I have the tint videos in Instagram already.

    ArrowOS 12.1
    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.
