I had this issue when I first installed. For me what fixed it was installing with ArrowOS recovery. After setting up everything I flashed TWRP again and everything seems ok
God, I hate the XDA app!

Thanks buddy, worked a treat.

After Arrow was installed, I put TWRP back on, and now it's fine. However, I find that I'm encrypted which I hadn't really wanted. Anyway, I'm away from miui, which is a relief. I only bought this phone because I knew there were custom ROMs available, and Arrow is one of the best.

Does anyone have any idea what settings we might be unable to access due to this problem? Anyone on another rom, for example?

Superb rom otherwise. First one I've flashed for four years (been using Pixels) and I'm very impressed, thanks.
The setting that should be there is for allowing to use fingerprint right after the reboot without typing the password, but its only available on decrypted devices, hence is hidden unless decrypted.

If I want to use microg instead of gapps, I have to follow the same steps but flash microg instead of gapps right? Also do I need to flash microg every time I flash a new update (dirty flash)?

Should I turn on dc dimming? Can someone tell me pros and cons? On the internet I found out that dc dimming might not show true colors but is good for battery and doesn't flicker. Please tell me your opinions!

In the installation process, I have two questions.
First of all, we normally wipe data first than flash rom right? Here we have to flash first then wipe data?
And when do we have to flash microg?

I've installed this rom and it's generally very good but regardless of what I do I can't get the colours looking right. Some colours look oversatched and others look under. I'm comparing this to other roms I've had on the phone like Lineage and OctaviOS and also comparing to my Pixel 4a 5G running official LineageOS.

I feel it would have been simpler to just stick to Natural, Boosted and Adaptive colour options and tune the colours the same as stock. With all the options in the colour settings I still don't seem to be able to get the colours looking "right". Is anyone else having the same issue?

If you wanna change the color saturation then try a script like this:
Su
service call SurfaceFlinger 1022 f X.X

X.X value 0.7 is for me good but you can try lower or higher

    I have used both Pixel Experience and ArrowOS for a short time (approx 3 days each). I'd like to give a review.

    Before the review, I'll talk about my expectations:
    I'm not a gamer or a heavy user. But I download large files very frequently. I'm just a user searching for a clean experience for prolonged battery life.

    This is my review:
    PE - Battery optimization is amazing. The battery runs longer than Arrow and MIUI at 120Hz. You literally don't need to put it in 60Hz, cause it's that optimized. RAM management is decent and is quite similar to that of Arrow. But, I have faced few hiccups (I really mean FEW). It seemed as though the 120Hz wasn't able to keep up in these hiccups.
    Arrow - Man oh man, it's clean. I mean, really clean. I have only liked PE for its cleanliness before. But this is really clean. However, the price you pay is in terms of battery usage. 120Hz works like a charm (I felt it smoother than PE), but the battery drain is fast. What I mean by clean is the customizability. For example, I can't change the clock format or remove the Google search in PE home screen. In this, I could. I could also turn off app suggestions.

    Summary: PE is battery green, Arrow is cleaner.

    Hope this helps...:)

    P.S. In both, BSG GCam works like a charm.

    "Improved" is somewhat of an understatement: the version before had _terrible_ battery life, and now it looks pretty good.

    Just curious, what kind of changes you did to have such drastic effect? Just a link to code review/commit is fine.
    I just blocked a Bluetooth wakelock https://github.com/ArrowOS-Devices/...mmit/e2bfeb0eac95de120605e108df11c53741afffe0

    @daniml3 Thanks for the great rom.

    In all web calls (ms teams/ google chat) i am getting reports that the my voice is breaking and not clear. Is this a bug or something wrong with the device itself?

    The new kernel has definitely improved the charging speeds but the overall Battery life has come down quite a bit.

    @daniml3 we could maybe go back to the old Kernel please. Seems the battery life is being affected by this recent change.

    Well, as some of you already saw, new build, with the following changelog:
    - Switched to the Pixel Power HAL (libperfmgr)
    - Improved idle drain
    - Fixed headphone buttons
    - Fixed yellow tint and improved display colors
    - Added WiFi Display support
    - Reworked the lights service
    - Moved device specific settings into the settings homepage
    - Reserved 250MB of space in each dynamic partition for installing addons
    - Set default DPI to 392
    - Reduced bootanimation start delay
    10
    New build available with the following changelog:
    • Improved cutout ring rotation changes handling
    • Fixed cutout aliasing (by showing the cutout ring always, but smaller when camera is not in use)
    • Switched to Pixel offline charging animation
    • Increased status bar height (now icons are vertically aligned with the cutout)
    • Moved the device specific settings to system settings category
    • Removed more unused files in the vendor
    • Fixed KCAL out of the box (once again (might need a clean flash))
    • Merged the tag LA.UM.9.1.r1-10900-SMxxx0.0 into the kernel
    • Updated blobs from MIUI V12.5.6.0 RKFMIXM
    10
    Just to let you all know, if the device has more than 100 installations in last 24 hours (check at stats.arrowos.net/recent), it will have automatic builds each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Those automatic builds are safe to flash even if I don't announce them (I only announce if they have device side changes), unless told otherwise.

    New build pushed with the following changes:
    - Updated blobs from MIUI 12.0.15.0 Global
    - Fixed infrarred blaster
    - Cleaned up vendor (reduced zip size 100MB~)

    If someone had bootloops and rolled back to the previous build, this build should be good to flash now, I missed a thing in previous build which could cause bootloops on some cases, sorry for that :/.
