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.
Happy to read this, finally.
Thx bro, waiting FP scanner fix at changelog lists.

I have tried several roms, and this without a doubt, is the one that works best. Very fluid, without failures in transitions, when you go down or up a page there is no such lag. And I have not found bugs, always doing clean installation.
Thank you very much for the development and effort.
 
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.

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.

Is it possible to disable/remove Google Assistant from the GAPPS version? I only want the GAPPS version because I can use necessary apps that I need to work without any interference. Ideally I'd like to remove Google's voice thing and it's assistant entirely, whilst still being able to use apps like YouTube and Uber.

Currently on Vanilla build and wondering if it's possible to get YouTube and Uber, and apps like it working? They all crash for me. I know it doesn't make sense since it defeats the purpose of the De-Googling.

If worst comes to worst I'll have to flash back to GAPPS and deal with Google's annoying assistant.

Under apps and notifications, chose the app you want to disable, scroll to the bottom and copy the whole name, is something like com.xxxxx.xxxxxx.xxxxx

Then connect the phone to the pc and via adb execute this command:

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xxxxx.xxxxxxx.xxxxxxx

This work on me on vanilla for the stock calendar and fmradio.

Or flash vanilla then download the minimal gapps package with the core google framework and store, then install manually the apps you need only.

Where can I find the Minimal GAPPS Package? Don't feel like flashing back for the third time again lol. Already on Vanilla may as well keep it.

Is it normal that the Gmail app recognise my X3 Pro with ArrowOS installed as a "Pixel 5" phone (when their security system detects I am using a new device), then once I try to log in from the Chrome browser, it detects the phone as an "Android phone" (effectively asking me to confirm twice for the same device).

(If it isn't that, then my account got compromised within minutes of signing in which.. I would like to think is unlikely given that my install is pretty fresh).

Same happened to me. You should be good.

Guess is this. However i noticed that here the dev explained that he extracted the packages from the official builds on pixel devices. No idea if both packages are somehow the same, you have to try it yourself since i'm using vanilla builds and i do not want gapps framework and store.
The better safest way is the unistall procedure app by app via adb.

I might just try that then because I don't want to **** everything up. I've used ADB in the past and I'm not sure if you can entirely remove Google Assistant but I'll have to find out. On Xiiaomi's ADB Fast Boot Tools there was no mention of Google Assistant on the list of apps you could remove.

    Will Arrowos 11 still be maintained after Arrowos 12 come out? There hasnt been any new commit since Nov 11.

    Hope so, A12 have some issues atm.
    Yeah, I tried A12 for a couple of days but reverted back to A11. Some transitions felt sluggish in A12 and it really bothered me.

    You guys are really desperate if you believe ghost touches are related to firmware or software in general, it is a hardware issue stop fooling yourself.
    And it's not even matter of touch panel manufacturer because it happens on both Tianma and Huaxing, it's just poor manufacturing process during assembly / poor quality control (or lack of it) and most likely some issues with grounding i had exactly same problem on Mi9 Lite before and if you google it tons of other Xiaomi / Poco phones have same problem aswell. And ofcourse Xiaomi will never admit it's hardware problem because they would have to repair/replace/refund every single phone with this issue which is huge money loss for them so instead they will be fooling people that they are working on firmware fix indefinitely and when your warranty runs out then they will say "oh well we tried" i mean you get what you pay for - top specification but **** quality, budget camera, non-existant support and laughable software, that's Xiaomi for you.
    Instead of wasting time and hoping for magic go RMA your phone before warranty runs out.

    I never had a random restart on Arrow 11. Are you using stock ROM without any mods? (Magisk, custom Kernel etc.)
    Currently i have over 240 hours uptime without restart and it would be more if not an update lol.

    Updated to 31/10 patch. Banking app still not working for me.

    31/10 still error with add card to Google pay
    Guess the only way to address these types of issues is to do a full reset, install the latest ROM from scratch again and then try use the Bank/GPay types of apps.
    If the issue persists then roll back to the last working ROM (reinstall from scratch) with those apps.

    Sharing the results might actually help the developer @kubersharma to be able to pinpoint the reason of this.

    In my own personal case the Gpay/Bank app stopped working with Magisk installed on 8th Oct build even though the Safetynet passed Basic checks. Even after removing the Magisk completely the apps didn't work.
    However after removing Magisk twice via TWRP and removing apps, GPay reinstall started working, but my bank App still refuses to work.
    Since then I have updated to 14 Oct ROM via system updater and the status remains same.

    Thanks.

    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"
    11
    Fixes/Changes done for next build/update:
    - Yellow tint on screen
    - Lowers vibration intensity to a decent level
    - Force volume steps to 25 as some MIUI vendors are forcing this to insane 150 volume steps, yikes.
    - Fix Recents Overview sluggishness
    - Ship GCamGoPrebuilt instead of AOSP camera2
    - Other minor improvements and fixes.

    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
