HI

How is the latest 12,1 build ? ( Sept 19 2022 ) Does it crash much ? I'm still on the June build and it crashes intermittently, like a couple of times a week (heavy usage)

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 :)

I'm new here and this is the first custom rom I install, 12.1 vanilla build. No bugs whatsoever and battery is great. almost 11 hours [sot] with wifi. The camera is not as good as gcam but I'll try to do without that and maps, which are the only google apps I used. I wonder why some people are experiencing bugs.

does system still crashes after recent 10 October update ?
I am considering to switch from A11 to A12
Also how is battery performance ?
I used pixel experience A12 recently and battery drains very fast.
Edit: I tested it and it works fine.

Hi, someone can help me?
I roll back to v11.0 (2022-09-23 / Clean Flash directly on ADB) and my Bluetooth doesn't work. He crash everytime!
I check the website to get an older version, but no luck.

I think the release 2022-09-20 has my solution (on changelog "Fixed wifi and bluetooth mac address").

Here is the logcat.

Code:

One tiny thing though. Anybody else getting green lines on Instagram reels? I don't care so much cause I don't watch reels anyway, just wanted to know.

    Hey all, an unofficial ArrosOS 13 download has appeared on the download site for the ROM, is there a post or anything regarding that rom?
    It's official made by the dev himself.
    It's just that is beta and you should use it at your own risk.

    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.
