I will ask again because noone replied me:
1. How to use all cameras i had in miui? i can use only front and back, no wide camera and 2x. Video is also much worse quality... So much noise.
2. How to hide settings (WiFi GPS etc) bar in locked screen?
3. You also guys have lower battery performance? The battery lasts for a short time.

yeah, the perks of walking away from miui.

1-maybe you should use a gcam port (trial and error) in order to get working the others sensors. custom rom's stock camera is just a generic camera app, not pulished for each supported device.
2-don't know
3-that's "normal" on custom roms 'cause kernel is different. i had the same "lower battery performance" on motog4+ motog6+ mi a2, galaxys9, etc... some custom kernels are up to stock kernel (and others have tweaks that even outperformance the stock kernel)

Updated to 28/10 patch. Still no fix to bank app.
Banking apps work fine for me. Always have. Chase, CITI, Amex, Vii, others.

Do you have developer options enabled? Some banking apps don't like that.

Respectfully, please remember that developers here are unpaid volunteers. Reporting issues is appreciated but keep in mind that all tech support is voluntary.

Before the 14/10 patch, my banking app did not have any problems logging in so it has nothing to do with developer options.

My intention is not to be rude but to note my observations and to alert other users who have not updated about potential issues that can occur.

Hi guys, I'm having some issues. I have managed to download the update via the app updater, but I can't seem to find the location of the download folder. Where can I find the download location for the update please?

Like the doc on ArrowOS says...
Code:
There are two ways of getting that update file:

    Assuming you are rooted , use your file manager to navigate to the folder found under /data/arrowos_updates and transfer it wherever you want. (Remember, this specific method requires you to have root access).
    If you are a normal user and do not have root access, fear not, for we have the perfect solution for you too:
    Long click the update card —> Click export . Is that simple. The update will be saved in the internal storage at “ArrowOS Updates”

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.

    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.

    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
    - 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
