If anyone wants pixel launcher for arrow you can use file shared in telegram group here are the screenshots.

Thanks to the devs who made this.

For actions in app drawer install action service app

Hi guys, I was on stock Oreo flashed from TWRP. After all wipes, I tried to flash ArrowOS and everything works except fingerprint that it's not recognized from system and it's unusuable. How can I flash this rom with working fp? Thanks in advance guys.
PS: Now I'm on stock Oreo with working fp.

I found another post that suggest to flash stock Nougat, is this the only way? Thanks guys.

Yes you need to flash nougat first, then all will be well and we will have world peace.

After skimming through this thread, is the only problem so far on this ROM bluetooth (calling)? How's the RAM management on this ROM? I'm on LineageOS and the RAM management seems to be worse than stock. I can't run Google Maps and anything else simultaneously for example, and I also can't play music on Spotify and then take a picture with HDR enabled on the Pixel/Google Camera which I think is due to RAM again (to add, I am using the lower-end Moto G5+ with only 2GB RAM too).

I saw it was mentioned in Arrow 8.x that snapchat could run natively on it, but does it also run natively on this Arrow 9.x? Because I see some people mention they need to install Magisk for it to pass safetynet check first.

I was getting force close too when I was using bitgapps 0.1 don't know why than I cleaned flashed with opengapps aroma and tried this now everything is working fine.

Uninstall pixel launcher if you have installed it previously and Make pixel launcher system app and put framework in vendor -> overlays and reboot and it should work.

text selection in recents only work with English us language and for actions in app drawer install action services.

Anyone noticed that pubg runs way better on this rom? For me it seems game performance has increased with pie, not sure why but it does seem so. Even ROS which has always been laggy for me, runs almost perfect on this rom.

From my experience, I have no issues running this ROM on my G5 Plus 2GB RAM variant. I have somewhat heavy apps installed, such as Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and also Snapchat, and they're not force closing. As for Snapchat running on native Arrow 9.x, I haven't tried that out as I habitually install Magisk right away. Others that you've mentioned, such as HDR and Pixel/Google Camera scenarios, I can't say anything on this small topic because I'm not mostly a photo person, but I can suggest trying Open Camera and see those problems persists.

*Regarding volte & user IDs*

Can you run these command via terminal on Android or do they have to be through adb on a PC?

Also when I run "id vendor_rfs & vendor_rfs_shared" I get " no such file or directory" message

You can run them on terminal. Run those commands separately and you need to be in a root shell...
Code:
su
id vendor_rfs

Bluetooth calls are broken

For me, everything works well in this ROM except for the calls connectivity via BT. If I call someone with BT connected, the sound is very noisy (absolutely unable to hear anything except for huge noise). Is it a known bug and/or is there a fix for this?

It ask me to enter my password at boot, then it says it is correct but my data is corrupt and i have to factory reset… i'm stupid i shouldn't have encrypted my data lol

in twrp go to Wipe>format data
this will remove the encryption and reset your phone so make a backup

4G Not Working

I flashed this ROM today and as i was earlier having IMEI and Network issues with Stock rom, now I've gotten the both but only 3g and 2g are available. I'm not able to use airtel 4g or reliance g4 either. Can it be fixed?

    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.
