Hey fellas, just wanted to ask a quick question. I have PE installed on my phone using the PE Recovery, can I just format data again and sideload Arrow OS using PE Recovery or do I need to flash TWRP specifically for Arrow OS?

I am writing this post after over 1month of usage on the Arrow OS 12 over the november and december builds. November build was just fine with one or two bugs here and there. The december build turned out a disaster for me with almost 40% battery drain at idle. Also there was no option for AOD and Custom theme colors on the GApps version. The updater was buggy as well and I couldnt update the rom using the inbuilt updater. Now switched back to Arrow OS 11.

Hi there!
I am facing considerable battery draining (over 20% on airplane mode by night), and not getting more than a day of battery with about 2 hours SOT on latest build.
Is it possible to go back to an older build just by dirty flashing it?

Just a quick update on the battery draining: I tried wipping cache on TWRP and it seems to have worked for now. About 24 hours later, I am on 60% battery with 2 hours of SOT, and deep sleep overnight, so big improvement here!

How'd you manage to do that? Since TWRP can't seem to wipe Cache and Dalvik due to encryption issue. I tried using the method of removing screen lock, but it did not work either. I'm using TWRP 3.6.0_11-0. Asking cz I'm also suffering from massive battery drain issue, the phone barely lasts a day on full charge.

currently on the latest 28jan vanilla build with nikgapps and magisk 23, fw 12.5.0.9
Battery is decent for me, actually the best until yet of the 2-3 roms i've tried since unlocking my device
Came across the first issue only this morning though, I have 2 sims in my device and after restarting it earlier, only one of the sims is active. Both sims are volte enabled, but for some reason I can't toggle the setting "Use SIM" on one of the 2 in the mobile network settings, the toggle stays off after tapping it.
tried restarting multiple times, wiping cache and dalvik, and reinserted the cards, to no avail. Anyone else experienced this?
and for some reason wifi cant access the adguard dns recently, mobile data doesnt have any issues with it though, strange

in such case, only possible if your device happens to be rooted
if it is, install a root explorer, go to system, delete all the contents of the cache folder, then navigate to the data folder, and within that delete the contents of the dalvik-cache folder

Just remove pin or password in Security. That will remove encryption. Then reboot in recovery and do whatever you want. Later again enable security and that it's.

So this has now revealed itself as a much bigger problem than i earlier gave it credit for.
Device details: I have an unlocked bootloader and currently on fw 13.0.2.0, los unofficial build from last month, unrooted
For whatever reason, one of the two sim cards I have on my phone just doesn't get recognised. Now the really weird thing is, this very sim card works on other phones, and if I replace it with some other sim card in its slot, both sim cards work. But this first one just won't work on my device whatever I would do. I have tried switching roms, upgrading device firmware, swapping the two sims between the two slots, everything I could think of. It is an Indian sim(Airtel), and for some reason the airtel live apk still shows up on the app drawer, but only the other sim card gets shown in the mobile network settings. Any help appreciated!

Did it work for you? I just tried it, doesnt work here

Yes I'm regularly using that method to update ROM. I download it by URL copying to browser then remove pin reboot to recovery and my SD card is visible. I can even clear the cache etc. If I have pin enabled, then I have decrypt error in TWRP and SD card is not visible.

Hi there, do I get it right, that all people reporting good battery performance have rooted their devices? And all guys complaining about battery couldn't properly wipe dalvik because they are not rooted?

Is there a way to wipe dalvik without root? Because I want good battery life back.

unfortunately there doesn't exist a way to access the system partition which subsumes the dalvik and cache folder but the root method, i'm afraid
I guess doing a factory reset might also atleast wipe the cache partition (may be even dalvik) along with the data one, so maybe also try that

I don't get it:
My phone is on A12, not rooted, yet when I wipe dalvik and cache through TWRP, it says the operation was successful. Can TWRP lie about what it does and not?

    Feel free to make your own rom with those features.

    It's not polite to demand features in something that is being given away for free.

    OSS or MIUI vendor? People on RN 10 pro using different vendor so it would be helpfull if vendor mention.
    OSS, as all my builds.
