Check any navigation apps etc running in background. I also installed Universal GMS Doze (Magisk module) and it seems helping. You can check: Settings → Information about phone → Running time (if Deep Sleep has some %). Before that my PixelOS was showing Deep Sleep 0%

The problem is I have not rooted my phone... Though maybe I will if that means getting normal battery life...

This looks promising. Arrow OS has a great track record and the build seems to be getting constant attention. Anyone using this build for their daily drivers? Any battery life, fast charging issues?
 
Hi Guys
I installed the rom yesterday and it's perfect. Everything works fine. The battery is very good, even better than the stock ROM.
I have some questions:
1. how can I check if safenet is working?
2. is there a way to show the NFC icon in the top right quick settings?
3. Is there any app such as security in miui (optimization, wipe device and check for threats and viruses?

Thanks for your excellent work👍

Just got this phone a week ago, can finally unlock the bootloader and get rid of MIUI. Just wondered, what recovery do people recommend to use? TWRP or OrangeFox? I had this same ROM on my RN7 which I used OrangeFox, but I notice the latest version of official TWRP is a lot newer. TYIA

My friend, it is difficult to explain exactly the steps you need to take.
It is best to read the instructions on the first page carefully. And do a search for "arrows sideload installation for Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Good luck.

Can anyone confirm that both speakers are constantly powered and have a low volume static on them? I have never really checked this on another ROM but was pretending to call my 1yo daughter and heard static on the earpiece.. can anyone give this a go and see if it is like that for them as well?
Also, is this normal behaviour on other ROMs?

Hi all.
I just purchased the Redmi Note 10 Pro with the sole intent to flash custom ROM. I am glad that the device has Official support from the ArrowOS team.

I am still researching as the Xiaomi phones are new to me.
Also, is ArrowsOS privacy oriented (like graphene, lineage) and a good start if I want to de-google this hardware? Cheers.

Just some information :

Downloaded ArroOS12.1 Vanilla (RN10P Indian Version 64 MP)
NiksGapps didn't work ( insufficient storage ) so I used Flame Gapps basic.
Also TWRP 3.6.2 failed to format data but 3.5.2 worked perfectly.

Steps:-
Fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Fastboot boot recovery

Now in twrp flash ArrosOS zip
Reboot to recovery
Format Data
Reboot to recovery again
Flash FlameGapps
Reboot System

Edit : Fingerprint didn't work whatever I try, Going to try PixelOS

Been using this ROM a while but the latest version 2022-09-21 seems a lot more unstable for me - the device has restarted several times since installing which I didn't have on prior builds.

Also noticed significant battery drain.

Anything I can do to help give info what's happening?

Im using the latest ArrowOS 12.1, but my phone reboots every day at least three times. It did not happen before at ArrowOS 11.

    Flashed the 12.1 vanilla ROM last night, so far pretty happy with it.
    Really minimal without Google installed, all of the phone functions have worked fine without additional tweaks/modules.

    Flashed the ROM and charged to 100% (rapid charging appears to be working, certainly rapid enough):
    7h 46m of tweaking, installing apps and sitting idle while I slept.
    4h 41m of streaming video.
    Left the phone at 56%.
    Battery life has been no worse than the stock MIUI13 the phone came with.

    Took a few attempts to get it installed without errors, method that worked for me, the reboots seemed to matter:

    Flashed it using [email protected]_2 coming straight from MIUI13.
    Format data.
    Reboot to recovery.
    Wipe dalvik/cache/data.
    Reboot to recovery.
    Flash ROM.
    Reboot to recovery.
    Format data.
    Reboot to device.

    Possible bug:
    The SD card becomes unusable/invisible if I select the option to format it purely for the phone to use, however it reappears and works fine if I format it as storage I can transfer between devices.

    Good job on the ROM, sleek and functional.

    Thanks for sharing this. Did you flash a specific firmware? Currently im on MIUI Global, v. 13.0.15.0(SKFEUXM), Stable.
    I flashed direct from the MIUI already on the phone, no changing firmware before...just installed orangefox and then flashed ArrowOS doing what I mentioned above.

    I didn't install the last update for latest MIUI version when prompted because I knew I was switching the OS, from what I remember I was on global 13.0.13.0 SKFEUXM at the time but wouldn't swear to that (could've been 13.0.12.0).

    The whole ROM thing is still new to me, with the exception of needing to do an extra reboot to recovery I think I followed the instructions on the vid earlier in this thread.
    And of course some background reading on the orangefox guides to make sure I wasn't going to brick the phone because of a device specific quirk.

    Edit: Thank you Saul, i followed the same exacts steps and everything went fine. Gonna try Arrow for some time in order to compare it to MIUI

    Installed the latest 20221109 build, coming from MIUI Global 13.0.12.0. Everything seems to be good for the last few days, the phone deep sleeps as it should, barely any overnight drain, ram management is amazing, everything is very snappy, no major issues so far.

    A bug I've found is the audio quality or the volume overall, it is quite inconsistent, in whatsapp for eample the voice notes sound very slim and I have to turn up the volume a lot, but then I go back to youtube for example and the videos sound pretty high so I have to turn the volume back down. Dunno if I have some bad setting or if this is normal.

    Are you able to use the split screen feature? I enable all the related developer options but nothing works
    I'm able to use it on mine, I use gestures instead of the 3 bottom icons so I have to swipe up from the bottom to get all of my active apps but holding the icon like the vid shows does give me a working split screen option.
    It's a vertical split as shown, no floating window MIUI stuff as far as I know.

    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.
