I updated my firmware to the latest, flashed this ROM, then booted into it once. Then I rebooted into recovery and flashed GApps (Nik / Core). I started downloading and installing my apps from the Play Store. However, MS Office and WeChat actually failed to download halfway through and refused to install. Not sure why this was the case but I suspect it should be related to GApps (and not the ROM), especially as A11 GApps doesn't seem to play nice.

Does anyone have similar issues with other apps? For now, I've returned to A10 Unofficial LOS as it was very stable, although the ROM hasn't been updated in 6 months (not a big issue for me personally but having the latest security patch would be nicer).
Just use the gapps build

MIne as well, it has problems. Need to format to FAT32. It looks like this ROM only supports FAT32 for USB storage devices.

I dont understand it that much... but i have 128gb drive that can not be formatted to fat32 as far i know... Now im using exfat (formatted from other phone) and the rom is able to read it... So i guess only the app that take care about formatting do not work (or i have some app conflict that results in "usb already in use" error during formatting)
I did not realise it before but TWRP advanced wipe can also be used to format USB and fix that problem (or use windows drive repair utility that sometime helped me even without formatting edit: now win utility did not help me)

Not the worst place to ask I suppose :)

1. Works
2. Not really - BUT pixel binning exists so gcam can take advantage of the 108mpx sensor to take better photos. There is an unofficial port of ANX (MIUI cam) but that requires Magisk which I do not support.
3. Battery is fine
4. Fast charge works
5. Works

Hey I am considering installing this ROM over the LineageOS18.1 I currently have. I have read through the comments of this thread but I could not find the answer to my question. I need VoWiFi to work for work purposes. Is VoWiFi and subsequently VoLTE supported? It is the main reason for me to swap from LOS18.1. Also, I'd like to know whether Face Recognition is supported.Thanks in advance!

I have lineageos installed sooo still a format? Also can you give instructions on how to install it?
Join the telegram group linked at the top of the main post and then find the arrowOS group for better support

Everything is marked there as notes. XDA annoys the hell out of me limited my replies etc

    DOWNLOAD

    FIRMWARE

    Global firmware is mandatory for this ROM.

    Recovery for OTA:
    Arrow Recovery: Gdrive link

    Install Instructions:
    Start with unlocked bootloader and grab a PC with windows or linux, or mac if you're desperate

    Download all files to your PC, not to device, place them in your platform-tools folder

    1. Open CMD, and navigate to your platform-tools folder. then fastboot flash arrow recovery (file name may differ from example command)
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    Then boot recovery
    Code:
    fastboot boot recovery.img

    2. On device, navigate to "Apply Update" & select "Apply from ADB"

    3. On PC, issue the command to sideload the ROM
    Code:
    adb sideload "name of file".zip
    Wait for it to complete. Stuck at 47% is normal as the process completes on device.

    4. On device, navigate back to home screen (top left arrow) and find "Factory Reset"
    Factory reset the device, formatting data

    5. Boot and enjoy

    Dirty flashing:
    Just adb sideload the zip and reboot, that's all!

    Tips:
    - if adb sideload fails, unplug and replug the device to PC and try again

    If you install magisk or other mods, do not ask for support 👌
    I discourage mods, but zips can be sideloaded like the ROM if you need custom kernels etc

    I must congratulate you @Dobsgw ! This ROM is the best I tested for Mi 10T Pro, with a little Kernel tweaking I achieved 709K on Antutu which is impressive, battery management is amazing and overnight it only spends ~1-2%, I have no bugs or glitches whatsoever, GCAM works for all the lenses and [email protected] without FC'ing, FP unlocking is blazing fast, NFC payments are working well, Magisk 23 runs stable but I didn't install any additional modules as I just used it to OC the GPU with Konabess, thermals(Under heavy usage: 37ºC Battery, 45-50ºC CPU, 50-55ºC GPU) are very good even though I overclocked the GPU @905Mhz. Please don't change anything, all that's needed for this ROM in the future is Android security patches updates. I will donate regularly so you can maintain this amazing project! (y)
