Bingo! ArrowOS 12.1 booted right away.

Wifi, bluetooth ok. more tests needed ofc
TKS!

UPDATE: phone calls ok, amazing UI speed, kudos!
As a guy who bought this phone exclusively for it signal in rural areas, I can say, its a little bit worse, it used to work the whole 45 minutes to my site on in the country on 4g the whole way, but now its more like 25 minutes good, 1 or two minutes off, and the rest of the way, its only 3G and below, but the debloat is just too good to pass on, and for now the signal is good enough, I also love seeing the apps, there is so few of them, I love it.

Here is a collection of the issues Ive have with arrow OS 12 so far.

No wifi hotspot (nor VOLTE whatever that means it was in the known issues of the build)

Even with Gapps, using google drive back ups for whatsapp is not posible, IDK maybe im dumb, i had to use a local backup transfer.

Google maps location is buggy, it works kinda, but sometimes even on good wifi it tells you it doesnt know your location (I use google maps a lot, this is actually my biggest issue so far). probably also related to Gapps

The touchscreen issue that came with stock rom when I bought it is still there, not really arrowOS fault but it wouldve been nice if it was fixed (its a lot better tho)


Also, to answer your question
Somebody can share wich google apps should we install?

On the link I provided, there is a Gapps, but to be honest I didnt like them, there is something off about it, google maps and google drive back ups dont want to work, I think there must be a better solution, maybe try to register your phone to google, I didnt do it because the command to get android id did not work, but maybe you find a workaraound, or one of these nice people can provide a way to get android ID on this custom ROM.


I also rooted the phone, I can help you guys to do that, but to be honest I dont see a reason to do it, I wanted to solve my touchscreen issue but it did not work.


Lastly, I feel like I should apologise, I was here giving advice on how to do something that was never going to work and if I was just a little more careful I wouldve noticed it was as easy as posting a link to the right thread.

I followed ur guide and it worked
I was using the latest version of miui 12.5, thanks to your advice I decripted the data partition with fastboot -w then wiped all partitions and reboot with orange recovery again, then just flashed the arrow os and BiTGApps-arm-12.1.0-v1.8_signed.zip
And I got it working just fine, faster than any other rom and better

Wonderful, hey man if you can, check how google maps works (I'm actually interested in GPS so Uber, or pokemon Go, or others, will also give me the info I want) I have the theories that GPS doesn't work because of my Gapps, but I think maybe its the GPS controller ArrowOS uses in which case, its not easily fixable.

Hello guys, I bring amazing news, I fixed Wifi hotspot, Im currently testing what else got fixed, I flashed the boot.img (of the oficial MIUI ROM) to te boot partition from recovery.

Ill leave the one I used in here with the other files



I have no idea what consequences this might have, I also have no fast way to check if volte is working, but Ill try to check that too, I just came here as fast as I was able to.

Installation Guide:

  1. Flash MIUI Global 12.0.10 Via Fastboot (Or else, you are going to have issues with wifi)
  2. Install PBRP 3.1.0 Garden
  3. Boot into recovery (Power button + Vol up button until Redmi logo shows up)
  4. Wipe data
  5. Reboot recovery
  6. Flash ROM
  7. Flash GAPPS (Optional)
  8. Reboot to system
  9. Install Magisk (Optional)
  10. Done

this is big enough for the OP to fix it, I would also recommend updating the link to ArrowOS 12.1

or maybe we all should move to this thread on Redmi 9C IDK

Tried this from MIUI 12.5.6, antivar didn't return an index, so I thought anti-rollback protection was off.
Now device is softbricked and stuck at redmi boot logo. Guess I'll try some other stuff.
Update: Tried flashing MIUI 12.0.10, then ArrowOS, now phone's hard bricked. Welp.
Update: Fixed the hardbrick using my guide so it had 12.5.4.0 , then flashed OFRP, then flashed ArrowOS. Phone stuck at redmi boot logo now. I'm gonna leave it as is for a while, maybe it will work this time.

Okay that didn't work.

Can you explain this in further detail?
Please did you use OFR to install the miui12.5.4 zip & then flash ArrowOs 12 zip?

    Can somebody please tell me which Gapps I have to use? Do I need ARM or ARM64 Gapps? I've tried it with OpenGapps and others without succes. Thanks
    Arm Android 11

    I use pico, but you can use what you like most

    And i have used opengapps and works great, but there are others


    ARM because the phone is 32 bits,

    11/A11/R because this ROM its android 11

    Pico because it only install the necesary to work, then you can download everything else on playstore
