I have a LG G8 sprint unlocked. I unlocked bootloader, gained root, installed twrp then installed Arrow-v12.0-alphalm-UNOFFICIAL-20211104-GAPPS.zip per instructions.

Everything works smooth, but i don't have face unlock. Is it an issue with the rom or i missed something? Anyone else missing face unlock?

Thanks

So far i've noticed, no face unlock, no NFC. Let me know when you try it. maybe i missed something
Thank for reporting the NFC issue. I didn't notice NFC since I didn't use it. I will fix it in the upcoming build.
There will be no face unlock tbh. G8 is using TOF face unlock and there are no custom roms supporting it. It may take lots of time to make the face unlock work again. 2D face unlock is useless and removed from Android project long time ago.

Thanks! Will be highly expecting the update. The rom is really smooth. Just gave my G8 new life. Also can you recommend a camera app? As the default camera app only detects one of the rear cameras. No ultrawide. Thanks again for your work.

i'm not sticking to TWRP, but i also lost the Arrow rec after i flash Magisk, every time...
another thing is that Wechat truly FC at the latest version. sorry can't send logs
You don't lost Arrow recovery, actually. Magisk makes it can't boot in the normal way. The new way to access recovery after installing Magisk is holding Vol+ after you restart the phone (without plugging in cable).

When the instructions say to "Go to reboot menu -> Select opposite inactive Slot", does this mean to select the active slot or select the inactive slot?

  • When I unlock the screen or cut back to the home screen, there is a probability that red light will flash on both sides of the screen.

    Hi all - first, about the download link, it is AndroidFileHost issue and I have no way to make it work. I just create MegaDrive account for new upcoming builds. The alphaplus test build is already uploaded into it.
    Second, perhaps my kernel is causing the issues. This weekend I will try to use kernel source from Markus (v50 dev) to see if these issues still happen or not.

    If you guys still want to use my ROM, please be patient. I still have my own life and this rom was created for my personal use initially. Because there are no devs for G8, I decided to share it here and didn't expect any donation. I'm really new to Android rom development and ArrowOS is my very first rom which I have ever built.

    Happy new year all! New builds are uploaded into Megadrive: https://mega.nz/folder/iQFXCSAa#N_SqYZA1TptEJVyPVg5iXw

    Michael Smirnov helps me to test alphaplus build and he says its battery is better now.

    Two new builds are uploaded. Don't expect battery draing is fixed. I'm still need to investigate it.

    I found the developer in the telegram channel https://t.me/v50thinq and asked him to update the latest firmware version. Here is the link, lets download, install and test))) https://mega.nz/folder/XEEVDCIR#QtlnMaX2mq9juB8GGyoUHw

    Bluetooth music now works for me, DAC works too. The battery drain i began to be tested.
    The speaker with phoinecall is not working properly. The interlocutor hears himself during a telephone conversation. Ie noise reduction does not work. Check out how you are with that.

    Otherwise, everything is perfect!
