I've had the same experience. Will wait a bit more til 12 is more polished, A11 does its job well still.
Yep, time is not ripe yet, moreover TWRP still do not support Android 12, infact settings are lost everytime i boot my device.

Not only this, it also compromise my partition, return the infamous 0Gb error, my partition "vanished" and wasn't able to boot into OS anymore after a factory reset, was forced to format my whole device, thankfully this solve the matter but with Android 11 never had such issue.

Hi There Forum,

I'm without my phone and am a bit lost and looking for help.

My Poco X3 with ArrowOS 11.0 was working fine, in fact very well.
But yesterday, the battery ran to zero, and after plugging it in, all I see is the ArrowOS logo glowing.
Currently, I can launch TWRP and Fastboot, but not much else.

Please Help. And thanks in advance.

I have been trying Proximity Sensor Fix from Fdroid store, serves well for now, though quite basic and irritating at time when you need to see the screen while on call.
Is there a call recorder included?
Yes there is a built in option.

I'm looking for a custom ROM that includes MIUI CAM and Call Recorder from I'm currently on Arrow 11, an excellent ROM, nothing to complain about. But I miss Miui Cam, better quality call recording, like, for example. I also miss custom shortcuts on navigation buttons. (eg press and hold back button to kill foreground app) Can anyone point me to a ROM?

    I have an issue: for some reason, the phone uses a lot of mobile data to perform "system updates".

    I would like to know what exactly are those "system updates". I don't think it is updating new versions of the OS, since on under the Updater it doesn't show a newer version of the OS having being downloaded.

    Install AdAway, and disable following hosts to stop the update loop that causes battery and data drain. It's a well known bug.

    Click here to Download
    Tip: Select OEM -> Device, choose Arrow version, choose the build type: "GAPPS" or "VANILLA" to download.

    • Remove any fingerprint, PIN, or password in MIUI
    • Unlock the bootloader
    • Transfer ROM to internal storage
    • Install any suitable recovery
    • Flash ROM zip file
    • Do a data wipe in recovery (format data)
    • Reboot to the system, wait and enjoy
    • Download via OTA Updater and let it automatically install; OR
    • Download an update, transfer to internal/external storage (always check file sha256)
    • Flash ROM zip and reboot.
    Read our blog article/post about:
    * HOW-TO report a bug
    * GAPPS and VANILLA variants
    * Checking build integrity

    ROM Source:
    Kernel Source:

    ROM Firmware Required: MIUI global or you can use any latest R firmware from your region as well (firmware only)
    UPI: [email protected]
    You can download ArrowOS Recovery if you like or use other 3rd party recoveries


    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 [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?
    : 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?
    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 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 versions aswell, so this is not something custom from related! It is hardware/firmware level

    Do not report bugs with mods or custom kernels.

    You can chat with me on Telegram:

    You can check out my blog post on pocox3pro:
    Why Encryption is important on Custom ROMs, have a read:
    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!

    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.


    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
