Looks like I messed something up pretty bad.

After installing 2021-10-03 (edit: and rooting it), most things were running okay, but I decided to update to the latest version (2021-11-10) (both GAAP version) earlier.

The OTA update didn't do anything, merely sending me to TWRP. I figure it might have been my version of TWRP (3.5.2_11-0).

So I decided to do a manual update by exporting the update, moving the file to my SD card, boot to TWRP, install the update, and wipe the cache.

Result? TWRP bootloop.

First question is, can this be fixed without wiping all the data? I've been quite weary since it has a very long time since I've used a custom ROM and not install that much on my new phone.. but it's still a pain having to reinstall everything I have installed so much.

Second question, suppose that the nuclear option is the only option, how should I go about it?

Thanks.

First thing i would do is to flash latest recommended TWRP if you are not using it - https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recovery-unofficial-teamwin-recovery-project.4269551/
Then maybe try reflashing the ROM. Btw. what do you mean by TWRP bootloop? You cant restart to system or?
After flashing to the latest version, everytime I start the phone it just goes to TWRP.

Later on I tried flashing back the version that worked before, and it will get stuck at the Arrow logo on boot.

I am pretty sure I am using the TWRP version you've linked, but is there a way to check it? (The version number match, and since I've been following guides on XDA, I likely got it from that link).

Ended up going the nuclear option.

I decided to try again using the same ROM (early October), and this time it updated fine automatically after rebooting to TWRP. Strange.

I started using this rom from yesterday. I came from LOS.
It's more smooth and it is missing one bug from LOS, while receiving call and connected to bluetooth the android is ringing, not the earpiece.

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.

There are random restarts - yesterday 10 times, and today 4 times so far from 2: AM to 19:00 PM
Also, VOLTE does not work on T-Mobile PL and Orange PL SIM cards !!!

VOLTE was displayed on the Play PL website !!!

I am asking for some update to make Volte work and there were no accidental reboots.

    Some fast questions:

    1. I'm custom to use TWRP, whats the difference to use ArrowOS Recovery? Any benefits?
    (I've read that you cant flash .zip files in Arrows Recovery, correct?)

    2. After reading this Detailed information about our GApps and Vanilla build types i take it that the vanilla builds are for us that wants to use microG? Its Signature spoof ready? (i know it was in older builds, this still true)?

    3. Are people using magisk without any issues? (safetynet is not an issue for me)

    4. Is OTA updates working or do you need to sideload / use recovery for updates?

    Cheers.
    1) there is no more a ArrowOS Recovery, you can continue use TWRP or ORANGE FOX.
    BUT for ArrowOS 12, in order to do any update or install anything through Recovery, first you have to
    remove your PIN , because your internal memory will not be decrypted at all

    2) Vanilla Roms, are pure/clear versions of ROM, without any of Google's Playstore or Application.
    MicroG is able to be used also with the GAPPS version. It's up to you wich GApps package you will install

    3) magisk is working flawlessy even in ArrowOS_12

    4) OTA works if first remove the lockscreen (pin, pattern...)

    Just sent a small token of appreciation for your hard work on making Poco X3 Pro a little more fun and full freedom to be with....

    if you use pixel experience or arrow you can use ngk kernel which gives way better performance
    I just got this phone for use with a Gamesir. Any advantage to using this ROM (or any other custom ROM) over the stock MIUI when it comes to gaming? Thanks!

    This night my mobile data plan was drained, mobile data usage shows 4GB was used for "system updates" when the phone was not connected to a wi-fi overnight. Also strangely enough the battery was drained overnight by 20% by Google Play Service. Google play is configured to not update and not search for updates on both Wi-Fi and mobile data.
    ArrowOS v11.0 | GAPPS, vayu, October 14, 2021. Preferences are set to never check for updates.

    There is update of ArrowOS v11.0 on December 2021, so if you did not disable "system updates" it is likely to download the ROM.

    If you have a limit on your data usage, you can set the data limitation and notification. You can also turn on data save mode and adjust Apps you don't want it to use your mobile data, including Google Play Service.

    Google Play Service is different from Google Play Store.

    It will always run in the background for many services like Find my phone, Location service, remote lock, nearby share and many more. Some other non-Google Apps relies on Google Play Service for it's functional.

    Google Play Service will update itself even if you set the setting to never update in Google Play store.

    When Google Play Service did an update, it will run some optimizations of the system, so it will drain battery faster.

    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
