There's a temporary fix for mobile data now. The next build will be delayed as my exams are gonna start from Tomorrow. The fix is:
In vendor/build.prop, change
persist.radio.multisim.config=dsds
To
persist.radio.multisim.config=none
And reboot

Tried the ROM, was extremely excited about A12. the rom is very smooth, and minimal. i only encountered some issues like phone setup screen not showing when you flash, like in other roms we get a setup screen before actual home screen. and i faced sometimes apps crashing... did anyone else face these? i understand its an initial build.. its okay right now.. Happy that you gave us a hope that there will be A12 roms for vince.. Thanks buddy!.. Will wait for a new arrowOs version from you!! :)

I tried it for two days. I did not flash gapps, since I don't need them. Rooting with Magisk also works without any problems. Wlan works without any problems. I didn't had any reboots and all apps I use were working fine. The only two issues I found:

GPS is not very accurate. The position is always 20 - 50 meters beneath the real position.

Mobile data didn't work for me.

If these daily-use breaking bugs (like the mobile data mentioned above) get fixed i and many more would give this a better chance for a shot. But switching from a stable daily driver to one that even though might be stable* lacks mobile. Is disheartening

The first A12 on redmi 5 plus though if i'm not mistaken 👏

Hi,

I found workarounds fort the two bugs I found:

Mobile Data
After booting or rebooting mobile data works for me. It seems to get broken when I connect to an other network or any WLAN. So just reboot or never connect to an other network.

GPS
Just install "Faster GPS" from F-Droid and set the GPS-Server matching to your region.

I think with this workarounds I can use this rom as daily driver. At least I'll give it a try.

Hope I could help.

Hi, sadly does not work for me, tried it all, rebooting, wifi on, wifi off, even messing with APN settings, no dice

gps in other hand seems to work fine

i really hope this rom evolves into a stable build and doesn't die off here like many other projects out there... having android 12 in a device that came out with Nougat is fantastic and wil ensure more useful life for our devices

I've been testing it for a few days and it works great. The phone works fast, no jams. The only very big minus that disqualifies it for everyday use is the non-working mobile data, with which I could not manage to run it. I hope that this one serious thing will be repaired soon.

Hey! I see you don't use gapps and have a question, how do you reliably use gps? I've been using OsmAnd but sometimes it just doesn't pick up the location.

I'm running microg, no gapps as well.

there is a definitive fix for mobile data problem, you'll need root (Magisk, etc) then install a build.prop editor (i use the one from Jrummy apps) and then do as OP stated above, works 100% no problem

as far as i understand that disables the dual SIM function which is the culprit for all this trouble about mobile data not working in this rom, no idea why...

The first step was to install an app (I use the very old app "GPS Fix") to modify the gps.config file off the phone. I set it to a local server.

Then I opened Osmand with active Wlan. Then Osmand downloads the actual GPS-data, when trying to get the first fix. There will be a toast. Then wait to get the gps-fix. This fixed the problem for me. But I must say gps is not very accurate. Butt for simple navigating it works.

Just to drop in a comment. This custom ROM is buttery smooth for a phone that's 3 years old. The problems I've encountered are:

1. No mobile data (but can be fixed)
2. Material you does not work properly (for me at least). When I try to change to a different wallpaper (e.g: wallpaper with trees) the color theme of the phone is still stuck with the default color which is blue.

Overall decent ROM. Keep up the great work 👍

    When I unlock the phone I see a red line around the screen everytime. Is it a bug or just notification or something?
