Did you format data(where you had to enter "yes") after installing ArrowOS.img?

If Yes: All your personal data and files from the internal storage has been deleted. In layman's terms, it's like factory reset. Now, you can go to the nearest pharmacy and buy painkillers!

If No: Did you flash the vanilla version of the build?
___Yes?: Maybe you'll have to install all those apps again... idk surely

I DID NOT FORMAT Data because I know that will delete everything.

I installed the same GAPPS version that I am already using, I am just really surprised that ALL APPS got uninstalled

Why do I have to unlock GO camera with fingerprint, is there a setting to disable?

The charge animation is a plain white battery, can I change?

When entering a PIN tro unlock, is there a setting so I don't have to press the -> or enter button?

Luv this ArrowOS Rom though, it's fixed some of my issues when running stock MIUI 12.5.4.

Cheerz :) :D ;)

Basically u flashed the 12.5.4.0 firmware then flashed arrow os? Have u experienced bugs with using this build?
I was on the GLOBAL LATEST ROM, then I flashed the XIAOMI.EU ROM (because that was what I felt like using), but when I got bored of MIUI, I now flashed this ARROW OS.

For bugs, so far no serious bugs yet. ROM is very stable for daily use. And passes safety net out of the box.

    I started to dislike arrowos because developer for some reason decided for everyone that "supercharge is killing" our phone. And intentionally slowing it down without providing option to choose for end user. So main developer is thinking that he is smarter than whole teams of developers and manufactorers, thousands of people.
    Developer had one task: to create a minimalistic alternative to miui based on aosp. But because of strong belief in himself he started changing a core.
    Please stop talking about things you do not even understand.
    This is a hobby, an open source project.
    "Supercharge" are you dumb or have been taking drugs in real life that you can't understand fast charging is completely fine and IT'S NOT WHAT IS DISABLED!

    The problem is a custom feature which is called "smart charging" (which is not even part of AOSP or any OEM feature, it's a random custom implementation) which cuts off power in the middle of charging that can cause issues which can even brick devices of people like who do not even know why is something is even done.

    Do u fixed fingerprint at last update?
    Fixed as in how?
    It was always working, I know that it has delays and sometimes doesn't work when phone is way into deep sleep.
    But this is how open source implementation is, no OEM releases their improvements to fingerprint hidl or anything else.
    I will improve these things if possible, switching to Xiaomi prebuilt methods is not something I am planning to do right now.
    I am already working on android-12 now.

    A bit of respect guys. Kuber doesn't get paid for this. I don't know if you're on Vayu or Bhima or what you did when flashing or after flashing but I have used many, many different Roms on many different phones and Arrow is definitely the most stable, fluid and user friendly Rom I have ever used. My hat goes off to Mr Kuber for the awesome work he has done.

    Hats off to you guys. You guys do a really great job, put a lot of hard work and dedication to let us enjoy these goodies.

    Can you please look at this post is me.


    Random restart has the same pattern. After I install the Gapps version of this rom it was running good for around 5 days. Then it restarts once a day, next day it restarts 2-3 times. The more time day passes it is increasing more and more(exponentially). It happens in the middle of using the phone, also happens when I'm not doing anything. It happened 2 times at late night while I was sleeping (phone was totally idle)
    I don't know if this might be related but, I didn't root the device after installing the rom and I always install and use YouTube vanced for non-root.

    Please, show me the direction brother. This also happens for Pixel plus UI rom I was using previously with the same restart pattern.
    I'm begging for this fix.🙏🏼
    Thank you
    I am using my builds from last 2-3 months now and have been dirty flashing each of new ota and my experiments builds
    I never faced any random reboots but I don't use Magisk, mods, Custom kernels etc.

    Not sure if it's in relation to this ROM or just the phone itself but whenever I try to fullscreen a youtube video it insists on me using the slider function to skip the video forwards and backwards. But that's not what I want to do, I want to fullscreen. I've provided a video to better demonstrate this issue. Does anyone know what it could be? Also, how can I disable vibrations? I've disabled haptic feedback but it still vibrates on some things when I click.

    Maybe it's because of the accessory you have to hide the front camera / over notch.

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

    FAQ::

    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: Flash ArrowOS recovery and download and install the update from the OTA Updater application OR Download from arrowos.net [codename: vayu] boot to TWRP and flash it; if you are using ArrowOS recovery, copy build zip to external storage (sdcard, USB otg etc) and install via "Apply system update option"
    If you are on PC, you can also use adb sideload while being on recovery

    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.

    Q3: Facing ghost touch issues on your device?
    A3:
    This issue has been recognized by Xiaomi as a fault in their MIUI firmware, I am not yet sure if this is completely a hardware fault or just a firmware fault with specific variants
    I have an Indian 8/128 variant and I never faced such issues.
    Since Xiaomi does not release newer changes done to the kernel source, we are stuck with the initial R source release hence we don't know what changes they made to fix it on MIUI if they ever did
    But, some people have fixed ghost touch issues by :
    * Flashing MIUI 12.0.4.0/12.0.6.0 full MIUI rom, booting to it, setup up everything (like registering the fingerprint, etc), and then moving to custom ROMs.

    [* Using 120hz? (not confirm but 2 users have suggested doing this has solved sluggish touch issues for them)]

    If this method works for you do not update firmware unless you are sure that will work
    This is not a global issue, only a limited number of people face it!
    Also, users have faced ghost touch issues on MIUI 12.5.3.0+ versions aswell, so this is not something custom from related! It is hardware/firmware level

    Do not report bugs with mods or custom kernels.

    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!
    BECAUSE:

    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"

    Fixes/Changes done for next build/update:
    - Yellow tint on screen
    - Lowers vibration intensity to a decent level
