Love this ROM right from day 1!
Vache, will you add it to the ArrowOS website?
Will it have updates?
What about OTA, how can we enable it since TWRP does not allow so.

- Moto camera complain about updates
- As you know, Hey Google does not work

Thanks a lot

Hey man, yeah there will be updates, more than likely monthly when the new security patch comes out, sooner if there's new features released. As for OTA updates, it won't happen as long as the builds are unofficial. But updating is no problem, just download and flash the update in twrp and reboot

Got it to install. The essential part for me is -

Download/Install firmware with the latest version of Moto Flash Tool

After that flashing works like a charm. I will post more updates shortly.

Edit: Boot to system failed :-( with unable to open loop device. I tried it multiple times, all the steps from the start, but unfortunately same error. Does it matter if flash the Android 10 or 11?

I will attempt if I get the same error with omnirom.

are you definitely rebooting to recovery after flashing the zip?
and are you formatting data, not just wiping?

Thanks so much for following up. I realized that when I was using the Moto Flash Tool, I was ending it too early. I rebooted the phone after the first "completed" and missed the second phase where it prepares slot b. I truly appreciate your efforts and now running ArrowOS on the Moto G 5G Plus. Thanks so much!

Yeah mate, sorry. Been busy at the moment. The April patch was done a while ago, I forgot to update the OP. I will have it fixed by the end of the day. Then expect the May one in a week or so 😆

    Hello, first of all thanks for this custom rom. I am trying to flash this rom but i am running into some issues. I flashed the TWRP on the a and b slot for recovery, this works fine. I'm quite sure im on the latest firmware, but still tried to use the Moto Flash Tool. When I check here for the newest firmware the application crashes.

    Altough i'm on the latest firmware i can't flash the rom. I copy the rom to the internal memory, wipe data, but when i flash i get the following error. "Error applying update: 7 (Errorcode::kInstallDeviceOpenError)" "Updater process ended with ERROR: 1". Does anyone know how i can get past this? Thanks in advance

    If it does matter, im using the XT2075-3 and also tried to switch slots.

    Edit: I came to notice that there already is a Android 11 for this phone, but mine was still on 10. I used stock rom rooted with Magisk, could this be the problem?
    I would try to redownload the file mate, sounds like a bad download 👍
