I installed this and my SIM card no longer works properly. My phone can read the card but network is not connected no matter what settings I try. I changed APN settings but they don't seem to stick. Any APN profiles I change get grayed out, and new profiles seem to disappear half the time. If I select a profile, it's not selected the next time I check. I've tried taking out and reinserting the card, etc. but nothing.

Try creating a new APN profile. Be sure to click Save on it.

Hi! I'm planning to move this weekend my G5 (2GB) from Pixel Experience to ArrowOS. Having some issues, mainly with camera and flash light. I just hope everything works fine with this ROM.

The biggest problem is over time the performance degrades because of the 2 GB of RAM. It'll be great for the first week or two. Gets to the point where it's super slow when you switch apps and that type thing.

Hi! Just switched from PE, so far everything is running fine, except that when I try to format the SD card (Samsung 32G) as 'Phone storage' I get this error "Attempt to invoke virtual method 'java.lang.String android.os.storage.VolumeInfo.getId()'" on a null object reference. I tried formatting the SD card as 'Portable storage' an no errors were found. But the issue is that I want to use it as 'Phone storage' I didn't tried with another SD card, but the fact that as 'Portable storage' works and that I never had an issue make me think that it's something related to the ROM, any ideas? thanks!

facing the same issue here, folks!

Updated my gf's Moto G5 Plus from modified Stock Nougat to Arrow OS 10:
- Flashed latest TWRP for potter (from TWRP website)
- DId manual backup of internal storage, SD Card and complete TWRP backup
- Wipe and Flashed latest Oreo Stock ROM via TWRP
- Boot into Oreo, set up basic stuff
- Wipe and Flashed Arrow OS 10
- Restore EFS, persist partitions in TWRP
- Reboot into Arrow OS 10

Everything works so far, also got IMEI IDs. But Mobile Data does not work! Tried resetting SIM, manually added correct APN, tried 2G, 3G, 4G modes, nothing works. just stuck on "No service". Tried to restore efs and persist again, also flashed the efs, persist "fix", still no dice.

any input on this would be much appreciated! :)

edit: ok, fixed it! so it seems like there is some compatibility issue between different firmware versions. flashed this zip file and now mobile data is back!

hm, depends. does any sim card work? or just not the new one? do u have any IMEI showing up?
Yeah IMEI fine, old card still works and ended up going with a different network and another new SIM from the provider. Checked the SIM that wasn't connecting in another phone (same Moto g5 plus but stock), worked just fine. Baffling.

The SIM that wouldn't connect was Sprint fwiw. New SIM is on TMobile and has all features working including VoLTE.

now that is weird... but glad to see its not a hardware / firmware issue!

btw, im pretty stoked to see how much life can be squeezed out of such a neat lil midrange device (midrange when it came out, that is haha). gf still super happy with it and after upgrading her from a modified Stock Nougat to ArrowOS 10.0 now, we'll be heading out to a phone shop this weekend to replace her battery. only thing missing now is a new case and shes good to go for another few years :)

An ENCRYPTION note in case this helps anybody:

the v10 rom linked from the OP on this thread (rom dated 20200830) *does* have functioning encryption (just as it says in the OP), however if you go to the official arrow website: https://arrowos.net/download and download the v10 rom Potter from there (which as of this message is dated 20210310) it will NOT encrypt (bootloop). (And the V11 Arrow rom won't encrypt either, also bootloop.)

I cannot find ANY v11 G5+ roms that have functioning encryption and the only v10 rom i can find is THIS thread's rom (and not even v10 Arrow roms that are dated after it.)

The person that made this rom did a great job and if they ever recompile it to include recent patches/updates (or take their encryption code and apply it to v11 official Arrow) that would be a great thing. (But that takes work and the phone is older and people have moved on probably, I know.)

    WHAT WORKS?
    • Audio
    • Calls
    • Internet/Data
    • WiFi
    • Hotspot/Tether
    • Bluetooth
    • Camera
    • Camcorder/Video recording
    • LED flashlight [Chop Chop - gesture]
    • VoLTE (tested: Jio on sim slot 2)
      It works perfectly fine for me and a lot of other people.
      TIP: For some people persist.vendor.radio.jbims=1 has to be removed from build.prop to make VoLTE work. though for almost everyone it works just fine.
      For others, you might need to flash OEM STOCK OREO, use VoLTE and then come to Android 10.
    • NFC
    • GPS
    • Encryption
    • And almost everything!

    WHAT DOESN'T WORK?
    • You tell me

    NOTE:
    * Backup persist and efs before flashing Android 10, restore it while moving back
    * Encryption works. It is suggested to encrypt without any pin and set it afterwards. Instead if you want to encrypt with PIN it'll be needed to reboot the device manually once, otherwise it's going to be stuck at the bootlogo
    * Magisk works but no support for it is officially provided
