vendor image may be out of date

I'm the only one getting "It appears your vendor image may be out of date. Please flash the latest vendor image for your device." on every boot with this ROM? How to fix this? Thx.

Yes, seems you're the only one. I didn't face this on last pie build. Also, this error is related to treble, but Potter ROMs are non treble. So, surely you ****ed something on your side. Dirty flash ROM and see if that helps. Also, check after disabling all magisk modules.

Thanks a lot, it was a Magisk module. I could isolate, disabled each one, found a problematic safety check module.
For everyone that may concern, I used TWRP to check partitions, phone i sooo much better now, no need to dirty flash.

Hi, yesterday I installed this operating system (Arrow v9.0 25 October 2019).
I have some questions to ask:

1) First, I was Aosp Extended v6.7, and I noticed a great lack of support from the developers / maintainer for this device. This operating system, is there at least some support ((I don't always say updates, but at least once in a while for security or other minor bugs if they are present))? Unfortunately I don't know him so much and I wanted to have a comment from you.

2) I've noticed certain applications pre-installed by the system, they can't be deactivated (camera, file, gallery), why don't you have them deactivated? Otherwise, I leave them among the apps without problems. I use google photos, Gcam and Google files.

Sorry if I asked you these stupid questions and I wanted to thank the developers / teams for the work they created

Thanks

1. No support for AEX pie now, it won't be getting updates because Android 10 is already here. So AEX Q will be coming soon.

2. You can disable them if you are rooted. Just use any "App Freezer" app from playstore. Here is one - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.yourbay.airfrozen

Ok, so after about ~45% battery life, just about any mildly intensive app crashes (Google news, YTvanced, VRV, Tasker, etc.) I don't know what the problem is, but it never happened on stock or PE 9. Any help appreciated, even if it's just "revert to stock"


Edit: nvm it just happens all the time. Any tips anyway?

There is no such issues in arrow os 9.0.

This ROM does not appear to be backing up my text messages. There is nothing for it showing up in the backup menu within settings. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks.

I found this. It was in a different area. I think it is working

New issue is gesture typing in AOSP keyboard is not working but it is enabled in settings. Is there a fix?

Anyone else having the camera force-closing? I applied the GCam patch but it still stops working on stock camera and Google Camera.
Already cleared cache, wiped everything, wiped the whole phone to factory and camera still force-closes almost always.
Both ArrowOS 9 and 10 are force-closing my camera on my XT1683. Stock running normally.

Great rom (possible security updates?)

Really great rom everything working perfectly.
Getting security patch updates (e.g. like every 3 month) would be really great (if possible)
Otherwise I'm considering switching to the Anroid10-based rom at some point
(which I found didn't work for me atm, but this might change)
Anyway keep up the great work, making it possible to debloat this device & use it with FOSS while keeping all of the features

    Too much hassle to maintain both platform, but good news is there will be an upcoming build with Jan Security patches soon.

    2 weeks of use and Camera force closes all the time, Facebook and WhatsApp also force closing from time to time... working only when they want to work.
    No tinkering with the ROM or anything. Unfortunately it is not stable at all for me.

      For those who just need to use Fingerprint Firmware Update can flash this: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=1322778262904029635
      I would suggest going full stock to have everything proper.


      Frequent / Common Question and Answers

      Question: Is this rom based on AOSP or Lineage?
      Answer: It is based on AOSP ( https://android.googlesource.com/ ). Also, keep in mind that all android roms are based on AOSP itself.

      Question: Does this rom support VoLTE?
      Answer: Well, yes it does. It works fine for Jio IND. I don't know about other VoLTE providers.
      Keep in mind that, Many Potter users face efs, persist issues when they come from Stock ROM to customs etc, always keep a backup of efs and persist

      Question: Google Camera is force closing in this rom?
      Answer: Google Camera from Stock/Aroma etc GApps will not work, we need Google Camera Mod. If Google Camera Mod is crashing then you need GApps as GCam depends upon Google Play Services/Frameworks
      Also, the recommended GCam app is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ar...ter/GCam-Minimal-Mod-jhenrique09.apk/download

      Question: Can I dirty Flash the new update?
      Answer: Yes, you can dirty flash the new updates as many times as you like unless the OP explicitly says to CLEAN FLASH

      Question: Which TWRP should i use to flash this ROM?
      Answer: The latest available in twrp.me website

      Question: Is this rom support MicroG / Signature spoofing?
      Answer: Yes, it does.

      Question: Where are the features in this rom?
      Answer: You can find most features like Battery Customisation, Themes, Music Visualizer, Weather, QS Panel Tweaks, HW & Navbar buttons (Advanced power menu), Clock and Date in the Settings > Display section
      You can also check Heads Up notifications & Apps Ops in Settings> Apps & Notifications etc

      Question: Wireless Display is not working on this rom
      Answer: Have a look at:
      https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/av/+/d0a98fa05f0f6719b93d000c4638230af06e0b99
      https://android-review.googlesource...sage-c1c5e4f0293889668fcc5449292721b5a599669d
      I don't think that works in any rom, its broken in all other custom Pie devices too
      The wireless display thing, you cant cast the whole phone but Chromecasting or any specific app casting works
      [As of 20th September 2018]
      update: The support for WFD is added back, but won't work as flawlessly as it did in Oreo

      Question: Hi I am facing this bug, please solve it
      Answer: No, please include logs and tell me how to reproduce the same bug

      Question: I am using this Custom Kernel, and I have this and this issue, please help me?
      Answer: Well, you can use any custom kernel you want, but the bugs you face after that I won't care looking at them because most probably the stock kernel doesn't have them.

      Question: Please suggest me the best kernel for this rom?
      Answer: I would say the default kernel! or try and stick to the one which suits you.
