The fingerprint problem stopped here I don't know how, but, the assistant still not working, I set up everything normally on assistant settings, voice match and other stuff and no results
I just held down the Home button on my screen and Google Assistant appears so I'm not sure what could be interfering w/ your phone's functionality.

It was pretty easy to install and to root with magisk afterwards.
Only have 2 issues so far:
1. Switched from MIUI and after running the arrow os for the first time my phone heated up. Never had heating issue before.
2. Settings icon and intro animation is terrible. It's really annoying and for now I have no idea how to change it. Creators of custom roms shouldn't really touch the main design of android.
Hello, my phone is acting strange. When I am on a call if I don't manually lock the phone the sensor that should make the screen black and avoid unintentionally inputs is not working properly. After ending a call I always find setting mixed up, as if my ear it's changing stuffs on the quick panel while I talk.

Am I the only one with this problem?

EDIT: Ok I just found out that I had "prevent accidental wake-up" was off. Could it be the reason?

How is performance in the rom? Is it better for gaming/emulation than MIUI?

Can I go back to stock after flashing Arrow OS or the rollback protection will brick my phone?

Thank you :)
Custom roms are made to be better performance and taking away bloatware and things you wouldn't use or like in the phone.
Yes you can go back to the ORIGINAL FIRMWARE

- Force volume steps to 25 as some MIUI vendors are forcing this to insane 150 volume steps, yikes.

I feel very low sound when connecting headphones, does this have any solution? through modules

    Hello, want to reinstall from scratch the rom and erase all my personal settings, factory reset and wiping data/dalvik/cache have no effect, my settings still back at the next reboot. Need to do /formata data or the /system folder have a different name?
    Wipe/format data (type yes) - Isn't it what you are looking for? I don't know if this will format the entire internal storage, so I don't know how can you flash the zip after this. Maybe have an otg flashdrive with the necessary files, just in case.

    Rom Changelogs:

    This is the final official build which requires pre-installed manufacturer/OEM vendor and ODM partitions. OTA updates from this build will be blocked as a safeguard
    After a while, when most who have transitioned to this update, I will release the official build with custom vendor and ODM partitions (compiled from source)
    If you want to be the early adopters, you can flash the "community" variant from the website.

    confirmed.... Google Assistant hot word "okay google" works again now, using last update (9th July)
    Hi. Just wanted to share my experience of using this ROM. Overall everything works nice and smooth and can be used for everyday. But some small issues were revealed.
    1. Autobrightness works not perfect, sometimes it goes too dark and overall brightness changings goes too fast not so smooth;
    2. Sometimes fingerprint scaner doesn't work from the first time (just goes vibration, but screen doesn't flash up and the phone stays locked);
    3. The gaming performence is not that great as on MIUI for example. I play only one game (Empires) and it's not as smooth as it should be.
    4. And one more thing. Using custom Launcher (Lawnchair), when locking the phone, it doesn't go instantly dim (as it should), but for one moment lockscreen blinks (with fullscreen Watch on it) and only after that screen goes dark and phone locks. It's not that big deal, but still.
    Other than that, the ROM is quite good, I'd say one of the best I've used so far.
    First time i do an upgrade on this device from a rom version to another, i need to copy the rom into my device and flash via recovery twrp? Then wipe cache/dalvik?
    No need to wipe data like the first time when i switched from MIUI to this rom right?
    Just install the latest twrp if you haven't already, version 3.5.2 which can decrypt data. Then just find OTA update in Arrow OS (settings / system / updater) and then download the update, and hit install. It will automatically reboot into twrp and install the update for you. If you have pin or pattern in twrp you have to enter it. That's all. No data will be erased.

    You can download ArrowOS Recovery if you like or use other 3rd party recoveries


    Tip: If you are new to custom ROMs, I would suggest taking a TWRP backup/partition backup (usually: persist, efs, firmware partitions, etc) saved in your cloud or computer.

    Q1: How can I update to a new update?
    A1: Multiple ways but here's the easiest one, flash ArrowOS recovery and download and install the update from the OTA Updater application.

    Q2: Why is Mi8 (dipper)/walleye oreo or any other device's build fingerprint and desc props/values are used?
    A2: As most of the custom ROM users might be aware that SafetyNet cannot pass with devices own build fingerprint props due to the multiple checks or other aspects which is unknown, done by the OEM/Google which fails hence nowadays devices are generally spoofed with build fingerprint and description props of devices which passes CTS/SafetyNet like from a device with Android Oreo or Pre Android Oreo (walleye oreo; mi8 oreo, etc) or from latest Pixels (like redfin)
    This device as of now uses Mi8 (dipper) build fingerprint and description to pass SafetyNet!
    (In future release: It can change to Pixels or some other device too just to "Pass SafetyNet checks") hence don't consider this as some lame reason to spam or message about.

    Do not report bugs with mods or custom kernels.
    Thanks to Worldwide and multiverse (TG) for helping me debugging these builds
    Fixes/Changes done for next build/update:

    - Other minor improvements and fixes.
    Hey. just wanted to notify you all that I am going to remove the "Smart Charging" feature in future builds, Also I suggest using mods/ modules which simulate similar behavior as the smart charging feature IS NOT RECOMMENDED!

    A bunch of Xiaomi devices (at least vayu, surya etc for sure) (or lets say some QUALCOMM devices in general too) have somewhat buggy PMIC ( i.e Power Management IC) and facing the issue is rare in most scenarios (some can face it without using these features too) till you don't mess power_supply or anything related to PMIC mods or features like smart charging, idle state charging, those Magisk modules for smart charging like ACC or whatever can trigger the PMIC to bug out as well and in that case your battery will be drained, won't charge unless you reboot to bootloader till the time you can. If you don't do that and let it drain (which I remind you might be quicker than usual) it might just go DEAD.

    Ref: https://github.com/lybdroid/poco-x3-pro/issues/1

    Most people might not face the issue, but still, there is a chance, and let's not risk it. I would suggest avoiding draining your battery to 0.

    I am not saying the above-mentioned features or mods are bad or broken but there is a slight chance something bad can happen, so my removal of this feature on vayu is just a safe play till we know something better
    "Be safe than sorry"
    BTW, Incase anyone wasn't aware you can see last 24 hour active/installs statistics here:
    vayu is now under top10

    Changes for Next update:
    Fixed WFD showing green screen while casting to laptop
