Somehow my google location history was not working, timeline in google Map recorded nothing. This has happened since dot 5.1 i guess. Tried add the device, allow permissions, unrestricted data & battery, etc.

Has anyone encountered a bug where whenever shutting down, the phone slightly freezes and reboots itself? I've had this problem on ArrowOS and have only encountered it on DotOS these past few days. Really annoying.

HI, I found a bug. Sometimes the screen doesn't turn on when pressing the power button or double tap to wake... After a few tries it sometimes turns on and works fine but other times it asks for my SIM pin number but I can't type it because it shows like this (see picture)

I am having the same battery problem on my poco x3 pro (vayu).
Is there a custom kernel that I can install on this device to solve this problem?

I don't know. I'm just going to flash the previous version again.

Edit: on ArrowOS 12. Battery isn't as good as the previous dotOS but better than 5.2. Hopefully they fix the battery life cause I love this rom.

Tried to flash the latest DotOS 5.2.1 with the latest global 12.5.3 and eu 12.5.4 vendor. Also tried differently versions of twrp. Ended up in it getting stuck at the boot amination.
Is there something wrong with the latest DotOS 5.2.1 zip?

If you can go to TWRP, did you format data?

    Kernel Source:: https://github.com/GZR-Kernels/Optimus_Drunk_Surya

    ROM OS Version: 11.x Android R

    ROM Kernel: 4.14.x

    ROM Firmware Required: Must be On latest Firmware

    Based On: AOSP

    Version Information

    Status: OFFICIAL

    Current Stable Version: v5.0.1

    Stable Release Date: 24-02-2021​
    Just sharing the proccess I did to get it working:
    - Flash stock 12.0.8 trough MiFlash on PC;
    - Install OrangeFox Recovery;
    - Reboot to recovery;
    - Wipe Data - yes;
    - Wipe Caches;
    - Reboot to recovery;

    (in this part, I had a really big problem, cause my computer wasn't recognizing FTP anymore. Everytime I rebooted to recovery, it showed the device connected, but I could not do anything like copy or create anything)
    Here is how I solved this part:
    - Rebooted to system;
    - MIUI boot screen showered up, so I quickly rebooted to recovery;
    - Now my computer recognized my device properly;

    - Flash ROM (mine was with gapps);
    - Reboot to system;

    (in this part, my phone kept rebooting to recovery all the time)
    Here is how I solved:
    - Once in recovery, wipe Data again;
    - Reboot to System;
    - Done!

    (Sorry for my bad english, I'm learning by myself)
    (I hope I can help at least one person with difficulties)
    Help. Stuck on recovery when try to flash DoT OS 5.1
    Already follow said step by step but I got recovery bootloop
    For those who after upgrading to 5.1.3 having wifi problem, cannot boot, storage encrypted, etc. Rest assure, follow this step:
    1) Download this latest R Firmware and this DFE place it in ext sdcard or OTG
    2) Boot to recovery (i'm using OFOX), if asking for password, enter your device pin/password otherwise just leave it blank and enter
    3) Backup your things on internal sdcard and FORMAT your data partition. NOT WIPE. after that, reboot to recovery again
    4) Flash this in order { R Firmware -> DFE -> ROM -> Magisk (optional) -> Reboot to System }

    This step worked flawlessly in my case.

    Still this update feels unstable, random lag sometimes appear , KCAL not working, and the scrolling experience feel laggy, i'm personaly reccomend to not update to this version.
    Hi, can you share link to this camera? Do i need root for this? I dont want safety net fails. Btw i swirched to arrow's latest build (OSS + A11), can't seem to flash this rom, any ideas why? xD
    1. Here is the link :
    2. For root i flashed anxcamera through Magisk which needs root acces (i havn't tried flashing it through recovery)
    3. i use PE+ and SafetyNet passes, so there is no problem with this.
    4. Try to flash stock MIUI ROM then flash the rom because PE+ it's not OSS based.
