Many thanks to @vache for the above device/vendor trees, the flash tool, and building TWRP. The guy's a legend!
 
@Beetle84 Thanks for yet another one. But since you're dumping everything but this, may I ask what about arrow specifically made got want to switch to it alone?

Also, why do we need to go back to stock? Just to minimize errors? I don't understand. More precise and revelant debugging?

Thanks again I've been wanting to try this one but just had a couple questions lol

Mainly the simplicity of it, and it has all the features I need.

Going back to stock first with the flash tool is mainly about prepping the b slot for TWRP flashable ROMs.

@Beetle84 is there a way to add the customization tool from the other 2 OS? I like this one based on Android 11 but I also like the customization from RR. I'm just curious.
But he just said this ROM had all the features he needs. I like the adjustable purtiness of RR as well but I'm ready to give this a run after trying stag 11.

Theres still CR and Stag. Either way we're very fortunate to have the choices we have. I've been wanting to try my hand at building and just bought a new multi-purpose lappy but still haven't put in the time. These guys are essentially donating time, talent, and treasure (ITM) to what is a damn good cause IMHO.

I'm ready to try a no-bs os myself as my battery life is in the ditch.
 
Absolutely it does! Microg works fine, as is or as a magisk module. I use the magisk module from the magisk app because you get basic installation and everything works. You only need to open the app and go to self test and click each item missiing their permissions for most everything to be added. Still need to get your nlp services added and enabled for network based location services.

I was just yesterday afforded the time to install and try the rom. I can definitely see the appeal of the minimalistic approach and I really like how the ROM specific settings are integrated into the existing categories instead of in a dedicated tab.

If I had only one wish it'd be for the long swipe long press options to kill apps and so on. Don't get me wrong it affords plenty of customizations and seems to be a fine ROM. I'm going to give it a go to see how things roll.

    You know what, I attempted an adb sideload as an "attempt", and it worked after fidgeting around TWRP for about 20 minutes. But for some reason, I'm on slot b. Weird, but it worked...

    Nah, not compatible, are you using telegram? I shared a build of Evo X there, that sounds like the sort of rom you are looking for.
    I just installed it
