I flashed this ROM with no real issues - I didn't use the TWRP Recovery suggested, but the latest version of OrangeFox and everything seemed to work fine (although I have noticed when returning to OF Recovery, it says something about "failed to mount" when I try to wipe cache & dalvik)

When I long press on the Home screen to access Launcher settings, and then select Developer options, it reports that QuickStep crashed & returns me to the Home screen.

I'm guessing I can't change the Home screen grid size? Can't get rid of that hideous Google Search bar? And can't get rid of that annoying wide 'pill' thing at the bottom of the screen? If I use a custom Launcher, presumably I lose my system wide gesture navigation?

The screen magnification seems rather large, even on its 'smallest' setting.

So far, apart from the above, everything seems to be working well & fast.

What version of OrangeFox do you have ? OrangeFox Beta @R11.1_3_2_A12 ?

hi, is it normal to reboot to recovery after flashing the rom (dirty flash) ?.
Dirty flashing is ONLY suggested for a weekly trivial update on the same ROM. Changing ROMs, and API level in this case, it is unfathomable to expect to have a working phone with a dirty flash. Even if it boots, which it probably won't, as in your case, the end result will certainly not be what it is supposed to be. You'll end up with a lagfest and apps closing, and then blame it on the ROM...

So , yes, it is normal that your phone won't boot.. Clean flash, formating data by typing "yes" and using the latest beta recovery is the way to go in order to have the latest Android a couple of weeks after Google releases it. We've come a long way... Porting used to take 6 months...

Nice custom rom. Really smooth with good bb. No deep sleep bug while bluetooth on.
The only rom where volte and vowifi works out of the box without problems (germany)
Haven't found heavy bugs while one day of using. Excelent. Keep going!

EDIT: After a while "camera lost connection error". Only reboot helps to solve the issues

I'm also seeing some camera issues. Opening the stock camera app sometimes results in a "can't connect to camera" error. If I dismiss the camera app & reopen it, I then see a camera image but it's frozen, dismiss & reopen, it's an updated image but frozen again. It takes several attempts to get a working camera image.

Also, I seem to be having trouble updating apps (possibly only Google apps?) in the Playstore - the downloads get stuck at various X% and I have to cancel & try again multiple times (it's not my internet which is working fine). I've tried clearing Playstore cache & data, but it hasn't helped.

I also had this camera issue both in arrow 11 and 12 but it almost never happens in arrow 12

Also can someone tell me how this rom preforms? (bugs, fluidity, battery life, etc)
Im currently using arrow os 12 and it is pretty good so i was wondering if i could update it to 13 now or wait for a more stable release

I've found this ROM to be remarkably smooth, fluid & stable. Although I admit I haven't used my Redmi Note 7 much as it's now a 'backup' phone. But anytime I've picked up the handset with this ROM on, it's been working fine.

There are obviously a few camera issues, but they don't seem to occur that often.

I'm still a little unsure about battery life - at first it seemed fine, but lately I've started noticing that when the phone has simply been left on standby all day (no active use) that by the end of the day it's down from 100% to say 30% which seems rather excessive for being on standby (handset isn't warm at all though).

Hi there,

I want to try this ROM, but I would prefer to install it without GApps. Is it possible to upload a Vanilla Version of it, so I can use MicroG instead of GApps?

Oh i see, i would like to hear from more people their opinion on the battery life because i still use it as my only phone and so it is pretty important to me. Thanks tho :)

(Also, could it be that you left the bluetooth on? I read that some android 12 roms had problems with the deep sleep while the bluetooth was on, i dont know if it could be the case)

I checked my RedmiNote7 before going to bed last night. It was at 84% battery & Bluetooth/WiFi/4G data were all off (GPS location service was on). The phone was not plugged in to charge. Approximately 8hrs later when I woke up (so the phone wasn't even touched all night) the battery was down to approx. 48%

The GSam battery info (screenshot attached) seems to indicate this is all down to Kernel & Android System (the handset wasn't warm).

There doesn't seem to be a lot happening here. Is anyone, besides myself, actually using this ROM? Is it being maintained or is the initial release the only release?

for me most of the things work perfectly, only the gcam doesn't work, the battery consumption even pleasantly surprised me

This is the best rom for lavender. The battery stats are impressive, I don't know how they managed it. It's a pity that the camera does not work. Please, fix. I would really appreciate it
