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.
Try this command in adb:
adb shell pm list packages

you can see all apps installed, to find the correct package name, back on your phone and go in settings>apps e notifications>google assistant, tap it and read on the botton the full name of the package, then uninstall it via adb with the command in my previous reply. This is the procedure i did to unistall the stock calendar and fmradio (not really a complete unistall, it just disable and hide the package, you can restore it if needed).

I checked and Google Assistant isn't on there, only Google Play and it's services. It seems like if I want to remove Google Assistant I'll have to remove the Google's framework which is basically Vanilla. There are ways to disable it but not to remove it entirely and it just agitates me.

I don't like how it pops up when you slide from the bottom of the screen.

By the way, can you disable haptic feedback? I have vibrations off and haptic feedback disabled and it still vibrates when I type.

Then you need vanilla and install manually the packages you want to add.

For vibrations go to system>language>android keyboard(aosp)>preferences and disable the vibrations there.

I'm facing ghost touch for the first time.. shiiit :cry:

Last build
You can try to flash twice the rom in this order, flash then wipe dalvik+cache, flash then wipe flash+cache again. Try it out.

If not solve the issue, flash the rom then do a full wipe (format data), yes, you have to reconfigure everything but often solve a lot of issues because dirty flash can corrupt the data sometimes, at least for me. Dunno if this update issue is a bug of the rom itself or twrp or the firmware.

ps: Had issues with reboot at poco logo at cold boot, once i did a format data evrything now work correctly. I'm on EEA 12.5.2.0.

Hello, I'm still using May 16 GAPPS build, and now I want to root it. I read in this thread that you can't root May 16 build (I tried to, but after patching boot.img and flashing it, phone went into Fastboot all the time so I flashed the May 16 boot.img and it went back to normal). Phone is offering me update to October 8 build (1.5GB). Will the update rewrite the boot.img and will I be able to successfully patch it with Magisk (23.0)?

Thank you for the ROM, I had great experience so far :)

Please what does the "Thermal profile" under battery settings really do? And what's the best way to set it up to maximise battery backup.

Hello @Developer

Thanks for the amazing work, it works great and stable. I have one request.

Can you please add more refresh rate options like we have in iPhone 13 Pro 10hz - 120hz?

Hello again. I went along and installed the update, works great. The only thing I'm missing is 48Hz refresh rate setting. Previously I used it for heavy games to prevent phone overheating. 30Hz was too low and with 60Hz phone overheats and starts to throttle too fast. 48Hz was the borderline where I was ok with games performance.

Question about rooting. The boot image did not change. I compared backup of "May 8" boot.img and "October 14" boot.img. They are the same exact size of 128mb. Is it safe to flash boot.img from full "October 14" package that is 131mb? My end goal is to root the device by paching boot.img with magisk (May 8 boot.img can't be rooted)?

    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.

    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.

    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:
