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

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

View attachment 5612193

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 I don't think it is updating new versions of the OS, since on under the Updater it doesn't show a newer version of the OS having being downloaded.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.

Hi, I write this in haste as i am lockedout of my phone currently. Stupid of me that I changed the pattern to save from kids and forgot. Meanwhile kids tried to unlock multiple times and lockedout. My fingerprint is registered, so is my Google account, however the patter screen is enforced currently on screen.

Anyway to resolve this... sorry haven tried much except read the useless clickbait articles on aother phoine.
help appreciated....

Thanks a lot! Is this a common bug with Android, or is it specific to ArrowOS 11?

Just to update that my phone has started to show the signs of ghost touches for last 3 weeks now. Wonder if the rom plays any role in this. Any sort of tips are welcome.
FWIW, I've also noticed ghost touches sometime after I updated to 26th Feb version. But I am not sure if it started right away, and I recall someone saying that ghost touches are hardware issues with the screen, so never made that connection with the ROM (and I would've expected plenty of people commenting on it).

Have you tried any other ROMs since the post and if so, did it help?

Is there a way to remove everything from the list and only disallow these three servers? I'm highly against the ad blockers, but it doesn't seem to allow me to uncheck the default list.

Edit: found it, you can do it in the sources menu

Ohh yes all is good now since I goofedup my phone and had to reset. The ghost touches are no longer there, eversince I moved to crdroid 11. However on the downside the battery is much less productive.

    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.
