You used a bad vendor most likely. Here it works fine with 12.0.10.0 EEA or 12.0.6.0 Global vendors
Well it worked when i installed the first version of ArrowOS. it started doing after i updated to the latest version just now. you got any idea what i can look for to resolve this issue. like is it possible to flash venders afterwords?
PS: I used 12.0.6.0 Global.

    Let me firstly thank you for creating this beautiful rom. Ultra light, SUPERB Battery life and really good RAM management.​


    Here are the points I encountered in the 17/04 version:

    1) Haptic feedback seems to not be as effective as it was with MIUI, it's much lighter in effect. Not as strong.

    2) Lowest brightness is pretty high!! Not really dark/sleep room reading worthy. Was pretty low in MIUI. The lux counts might need to be dropped further for the lowest manual battery settings. **This is really really important**

    3) Fingerprint reader sometimes reads prints, sometimes works erratically. **Also important** Could the press to read and unlock option also be added? instead of just tap to unlock?

    4) Double tap to lock randomly stops working. **Kind of irritating, not a major thing**

    5) I did encounter the multi-task bar at the bottom turn unresponsive randomly, not frozen or hung, just unresponsive. Locking and Unlocking the phone again resolves it.

    5) GCAM (Arnova8G2's version) doesn't work with the simple gallery app installed (It worked together on MIUI). Further, I already have purchased the Simple Gallery Pro version, but when I try to install it by clicking update (Playstore probably thinks Pro is already installed on my phone), PlayStore throws an error (Can't install Simple Gallery Pro - Photo Manager & Editor).


    P.S: I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw 49% battery @ 9:15am in the morning, which I saw at exactly 1:48am before falling asleep. 0% battery drop. This is like NEAR PIXEL battery efficiency. Really Really good job mate!!

    P.P.S: Could the gesture navigation arrows that pop-up when one swipes from left to right/vice-versa be reduced in size please? It seems to be quite big.

    This new build is a great improvement, thank you very much!

    Wrt battery usage, something is still not right with AOD. Battery usage while AOD is on is very high. I wonder if you or anyone else can do anything about it, since let's not forget, not even the stock ROM allows it to be permanently on. Below my battery usage graph...from 23 to 7 AOD is off and we can see the drain is very low. At 7 is begins dropping, but the phone remained on my desk still for a couple hours...

    Agree something with battery drain is still wrong
    I used Brave Browser for 40 minutes and it took 21% of battery (dont have screennshot because I reset battery data). I also had the "Update" app that took 11% for 4 minutes during my sleep and the overall battery drain was 27% in 7 hours, when my phone was not used at all So there is a lot to improve in matter of battery drain.

    I will disable now AOD and we weill see if that solves the issue. I'll let you know tommorow.

    My 1 day review is just awesome. Smoothness is day and night with MIUI. Battery life is just unbelievable! Well, I can afford the basic camera as it can shoots my child :D. Not a single un responsiveness!
    Thank you so much for this...

    1) I'll test other vibration patterns for future builds, indeed current ones are very light.
    2) Will be fixed on next build
    3) That feature will be added soon if all goes well
    4) Blame Xiaomi
    5) Nothing I can do at those very weird bugs unless happens here

    The arrows are same size as AOSP so they'll be kept like that :)

    @daniml3 Thank you!

    Could I maybe suggest an additional setting to be tweaked for the next release? Media audio volume was pretty low on MIUI (even on the full setting!), it would be fantastic if you could please boost a few decibels up for it to be perfect! Thanks in advance! ☺️👍

    Maybe a bug, I don't know...configured the lock screen like this hoping it's off to save battery but turns on when a notification comes. It's not happening...

    Screenshot_20210419-081912_1.png


    Correction: The screen does turn on for a brief second, but then it goes off again. I whish the notification remained, since we don't have the LED anymore...

    That isn't how that feature works, it just wakes a few seconds when it receives a new notification and then turns off again.

    Hihi, spotted something funny when trying out the alarms, a couple of them appear twice. Will do a cursory sanity check in the rest of the ringtones section and report back.



    Edit: All good in the ringtones and notifications section respectively.

      Has anyone experienced screen flickering on low brightness? I've not. Just checking to see if enabling DC dimming option is at all needed... Tks
