Weird، I tried disabling all magisk modules and went even further to update my adreno driver with different configurations from poco x3 pro, since it has the same processor. 3Dmark shows higher numbers than stock but no changes from stock when it comes to genshin. I'll try reinstalling the app again and maybe reset my device.
There's always a bit of a difference from sustained load over extended duration and a single instance benchmark. Could also be a Genshin optimization thing.

I'm getting this "Face unlock disabled due to inactivity" a few times a day which is kind of annoying. I wonder if there is a way around it, otherwise it defeats the purpose if you have to input your pin all the time.
 
I recently updated to the 20230117 build via OTA.
Then I -extracted the boot.img via shell -patched it with Magisk -flashed it via fastboot, but I got a bootloop and couldn't get past the MI logo.
I had to sideload the ArrowOS build again.

It works now but I am still without root. Anyone having similar experiences?
I used magisk on build 20230116 the option flash to other slot. It works.

Upgraded OTA from the December built to this January 17 one without problems. I installed Magisc in inactive slot before reboot and I was able to maintain root. The installation took 2.5 hours for some reason. I now have native face unlock which is nice. Also Chrome doesn't crash anymore when location is enabled.
The only minor issue I encountered is that the face unlock did not work at some point after update "due to inactivity". I input the pin code and was able to enter but I found this a bit odd. Otherwise the ROM is flawless
can you give me more info. thanks
 
how? can you give me a little guide. thanks. i have to disable the modules or do something?
Direktly after the ota don't restart the device. Open Magisk. Klick on install (where you patched boot image). Then on install to other slot. Then finished klick in magisk on reboot. Then you have root and all modules after update. You must not delete anything.

Hi all,

I will be able to unlock my bootloader on Sunday. Just want to ask something before flashing and rooting (installing magisk). 2 questions:

1. Am I suppose to patch the "boot.img" or the "boot_nabu_w-skippkgverification-13-arrow-beta.img" (downloaded from ArrowOS-Recovery) with magisk?

2. Can I install magisk on MIUI and patch the boot.img first. Then flash the patched_boot.img and vendor_boot.img and follow the instruction to flash the rom?

Great work on the ROM and I'm really appreciate it. I am really looking forward to try the ArrowOS out.

Suggestion: It will be great to update the hyperlink for "Click here to download recovery and see instructions" in the #1 with the new url.

1. You are supposed to patch your own "boot.img" extracted after installation of the Arrow ROM.
2. You have to install Magisk after you install the Arrow Rom and then patch the "boot.img". Follow this order to avoid boot loops or other issues

Can anyone please confirm whether the MI Pen is working with this rom? Also, are there any major bugs?

It works much better than using MIUI rom. Especially the palm rejection (actually its not only works much bettter, its works perfectly) and nope i haven't found any bug since arrowOS supported it for the first time

Just got my pen and looking for applications.

Just want to ask if anyone can recommend applications that support palm rejection?
I would like to take notes and/or draw on pdf.

    The same happens to me. Impossible to access the site.
    couldn't access the arrow official site the entire day. Is just me?
    I know and appreciate that Dev's don't often allow/like mirrors or such, but given that the site can't be accessed I am temporarily uploading a copy of Arrow-v13.0-nabu-OFFICIAL-20230103-GAPPS.zip to mega. Will post link when it is done which I'll leave open until I'm asked not to or until the Arrow site is running again. Hope this is OK @K001droid - is this acceptable? Thanks for the awesome ROM BTW

    Is there a solution for the high pitched sound in call apps like Google meet?

    Some people do sideload and some flashed the magisk patched boot.img

    Sry i can't tell you and/or find the thread for that, but im pretty sure a lot of people already made a tutorial about it in this forum


    I personally dont know what does it do. I just followed this guy's post
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...omi-pad-5-nabu-official.4502749/post-87733027


    I dont know, never tried it but i've tried some experimental cusrom on another device before and my experience wasn't so great

    Sry man, im just another casual user. I can't help you much in technical case
    After rebooting 5 times I got a version of Dolby Atmos (seems to be old) and the bug disappeared after an hour. Magisk Modules needs to reboot to apply but luckily I think there aren't any which I want because I don't need anything I think except if you highly recommend something.

    Try to find a solution to root! It seems like it's successfully flashing magisk 15.2 but it does not root the system!
    My device is already rooted via Sideload

    when i check fastboot version with: fastboot --version. This is the result instead of the new version: C:\Android\fastboot.exe: unknown option -- version. So i just deleted it and add the new platform tools into the env variable. And That's all
    Hmmm, that's too complicated for me... I'm back on latest Global MIUI and I'll wait until an update us out which gives that problem. Bit thanks anyway.

    Did anybody test if this ROM also works on "elish" (Mi Pad 5 Pro M2105K81AC)?
    This is only for Mi Pad 5 (NABU). Any other devices will get a bootloop. Maybe you can find an unofficial ROM.

    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)

    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
