Code:

* We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at us for messing up your device, We will laugh at you.
* It is your fault because you chose to do all the modifications on your device.
* Remember projects like these and the work done on them is a hobby to the
* contributors and the team members, no one is working for you nor is getting paid for it
* have some respect for the work done by them since it is done purely on interest or a hobby

One question, can I sideload Magisk or is it necessary to patch boot.img?
Sideload magisk should work (adb sideload magisk*.apk - remember to press volume down and power button when it gets stuck at 0% because it will show a package verification prompt) but patching boot.img is best option

1) The search bar in Settings never works.
2) There are too many ways to put to sleep ( double tap on status bar/ anywhere on the lock screen) but not a single double tap to wake method is presented.
3) There some stuttering and bugs but I guess this is on A12 as I also encounter with these on different roms. Not because of this rom.
Other than that this rom is at 90% of working capability. ( Also no 90Hz yet)

Search bar works for searchable items, soke custom prefs don't come in search that I know.

2. should work in official, you are using experimental

3. device only supports 60 and 120, so ....

Edit 2:
1) the search bar in Settings is not working actually. I typed in "Sound" for example, it just stay there and show nothing.
2. The a critical problem where I can't move app in App Drawer to homescreen and favorite tray

Number 2 is just a launcher problem. If you change launcher problem is solved

Thank you so much!

You guys are lifesavers. I almost went near selling the device and using the money to buy something useful. I love the pen but I hate MIUI more. Thank You again for all that you do. <3

Is there any difference between the boot.img and vendor_boot.img in the recovery folder and what can be extracted from the payload.bin file? Probably not.
We're still relying on the MIUI recovery? Yep.

    yeah, faced the bootloop issue myself, debugging and probably will be fixed with next update as maybe I think I know why that glitch

    anyways, new update soon (maybe today or later tonight)

    Also, I have decided not to renew my website next time around maybe, so I moved everything to medium
    https://k001droid.medium.com/ - follow me here if you want

    nabu instructions post:-

    extracting boot.img:

    something I wrote for encryption on custom roms:-

    (not sure how medium works, but here are always free unlimited reading links)

    In case I am the first trying this:
    I was on MIUI 14 CN Stable Dev Android 13 (unrooted) exactly as described below under firmware, and then flashed ArrowOS 13 accordint to the guide. Everything works out of the box without any issues: Pen, Keyboard (After activation under Bluetooth Settings), WIFI6, Audio (Dolby?)

    Therefore I can verify this works flawlessly:
    • Firmware: nabu_images_V14.0.22.12.21.DEV_20221221.0000.00_13.0_cn_140cca658d.tgz
    • ROM: ArrowOS 13 GAPPS 3. January

    Maintainers and the ArrowOS team: You guys are genious! Much love to you guys

    Hi everyone! I updated from December 8th build to 17 Junary build from the updater and didn't get any bootloop. Hope everyone gets the same result as I can't assure you'll get the same behaviour
    2
    I had success when I flashed Magisk via sideload
    adb reboot sideload
    adb sideload Magisk***.zip
    press lower volume [short] - press on/off [short] - that it worked for me
    1
    When it's stuck at 0%, press "volume down" one time and then "power button" one time, and it should continue the process
    It works!! Big thanks!!

    Latest ArrowOS 13.0 update is here for Mi Pad 5 (nabu) By kubersharma001, LynnrinChan and ganeshvarma

    Mi Pen and Mi Keyboard both work
    High pitched audio issues on voice should be fixed
    Other improvements and changes

    Have any issues flashing? Read the goddamn instructions post https://kubersharma001.com/arrowos-for-xiaomi-pad-5-nabu

    What firmware to use? Any that works for you if you can't decide to use whatever your region 's fw is. I see a lot of people blindly flashing CN fw.

    Support: kubersharma001chat and Lynnrin_group (on telegram)

    PS: When downloading select arrow-13 and OFFICIAL tabs not experimental🤦‍♂
    Do not flash stupid mods that break system and come back to me complaining. If you wanna mod, learn to deal with it.

    Hello, guys. I have been super busy so I may not be posting anything on XDA and hardly anything over my TG channels. OTAs will keep releasing/builds will be up on the website.
    ALSO:
    I do not own the Xiaomi Keyboard, it seems the latest changes broke it for some users which should be fixed in the latest release.

    A lot of people are asking me if this is a good tablet for art or not. I am a simple man and have very basic tablet needs. I do not own a pen (too expensive) nor can I draw something good. Please, can someone with a pen or knowledge of apps which works best for artists give their short insights so I can refer people here?

    Planning to buy a Mi pen to support it
    if anyone is donating, please mention "nabu" or "mipad5" in the payment description
    Gonna save for it, those donations will help

    edit: Mi pen is now supported from 14/oct builds :D
