Hey, I'm interested in flashing this ROM, just have a few questions:

1. What is the difference between VANILLA and GAPPS version of the ROM? I know that one comes without gapps pre-installed and one with them, but what GAPPS package does it come with? How does the GAPPS build compare to flashing something like pico or nano gapps? The link in the OP is 404: https://blog.arrowos.net/posts/about-gapps-vanilla-build

2. What is the difference between Official and Community build? Which version is recommended to install? Is there a benefit to using one over the other?

3. Where is the ArrowOS telegram? I checked https://t.me/Arrow_OS but it is empty...

1. No idea what the Gapps version gapps package is. I assume it's the same as Nikgapps Stock package. I'm on Vanilla and just flashed Nikgapps core package and I just flashed the other nikgapps addons that I needed, like Google messages, contacts and phone.

2. AFAIK, Official is MIUI vendor based, Community is OSS Vendor based. I tried installing the community version but I just keep encountering bootloops, not just for ArrowOS Community but for other OSS based Roms too. I'm using TWRP, so that might be the culprit, coz the last two TWRP versions for Raphael, just bootloops whenever I try to restore a Nandroid backup. You might have some luck with Orangefox recovery. I haven't tried it yet. As far as reviews. Community, they claimed that gaming performance is better, but battery backup was just ok. As for the Official they said that Battery Backup was excellent. I also flashed 20210101 f1xy kernel, so far it's good, battery life is great.

Official and community builds are updated and pushed to infra, sorry for the issues with missing builds as the infra was cleaned up!

Changelogs:
- June security patches
- For more check here: Source Changelogs

I have a TG support chat/blog now, you can msg there anything which cannot be done on XDA, I am super active on Telegram
For those of you who didn't know: My Redmi K20 Pro was dead from last month and the government declared a complete lockdown so there was nothing I could do about it, now that lockdown is lifted I might have it working within a week.

Note:
• Official build requires MIUI vendor
• Community build comes with OSS vendor
• Users can upgrade to OSS vendor builds from MIUI vendor build via a dirty flash, it works but a clean flash is always recommended. To go to OFFICIAL builds you'll need to flash MIUI vendor + firmware before doing that.

Im on the lastest community build. It's super smooth and quite stable. And now that Kuber got his device back, I am quite sure he he will make the ROM even better.

Looks like there is no difference between Vanilla and GAPPS build, at least for me, because I had to install manually all gapps after flashing "gapps" build.

Does the community build have better battery life than the official build? I'm using the official build currently, but battery life is not that great, this is probably due to the MIUI kernel. I could flash community and use immensity or something.

    Please don't assume looking at device trees of other people, It has never been broken in any arrow_raphael builds till this date.

    First of all a job well done. The ROM is really smooth. I have been on the community edition. Its just simple and fast what else can I say.This ROM is a boon for minimalist like me. I am using the vanilla build with opengapps-nano-a11-test build. Its flawless. No crashes what so ever. Though OK Google doesn't work. Its a Universal problem.

    But I see that MI audio enchancer was removed from the community build. It was present in 24/04/2021. But now its no longer there. Are you going to add moto dolby instead?.

    Keep up the good work.
    It is partially broken, I will add it back later. I just removed as of now to not have people complain about it.
    (ps: I have some family emergency where I need to have most of my attention at, will check it out when I am free)

    Hello everyone next builds will add support for
    Screen Off FOD again and the brightness flicker while turning the screen off with FOD circleview is gone now.
    There are also minor changes here and there.
