greeting from China!
I have reported this system level bug in darkmode to the PM of iQOO(subsidiary of vivo, they share the same OS) via weibo, hope they can fix it in the later release!
Nice. Is there a way to share issues and challenges with Vivo?

After my last update the always on settings can not be opened anymore. Clicking on always on display the menu will return to the general settings. Also after each restart the wallpaper lock screen background is automatically changed to Chinese background (with Chinese text)... This is really annoying!!! And it was not there before the last update!

Me again. Lol. The APK via external worked fine for a while. But now it's the same. It started not communicating with Google servers for some reason and dropped the theme I installed. Also has anyone else noticed that origin os does not allow national lottery and certain (gay) dating apps? Play store is a no go so I used APK pure.

Today, the phone warned me installing the update of "Binance". :) They are watching us....

After the latest update, all of my apps are now able to be opened in small windows. In the beginning, it was only a few system apps. Someone had mentioned it before. That seems to be fixed now on Origin OS.

New issue (just noticed now) - opening the messages is defect. The window opens and closes after 0.5s - a second try has been always successful. But!

Since today, I can not open my messages anymore. The window opens and closes again automatically. Anyone with this issue? I'm unable to check normal sms! That's absolutely not acceptable!

Will install the update, maybe it will fix it!

Just use the light mode and change the settings of your apps to dark/night mode. Still hoping Vivo will fix these issues within the next update!

Status December 8th 2022
(my) known issues (maybe a Vivo developer follows this thread - do not know how to share these issues with Vivo):
1) Google services turn off automatically from time to time: apparently fixed (Dec '22)
2) message app window sometimes closes and can no longer be opened (restarting phone will help sometimes): apparently fixed (Dec '22)
3) always on display settings can not be opened, settings window always crashs (frustrating): still existing
4) dark mode issues (notifactions are worse than in light mode): still existing
5) general notification issues, sometimes notifactions are not working or are delayed (especially always after updates - all settings need to be checked again): still existing
6) volume of headset very loud even on lowest level (too less volume levels especially in the low volume area): still existing
7) echo for dialog partners while having a call using a USB-C Adapter for my headset: apparently fixed (Sep '22)
8) random wallpaper changes for the lockscreen: apparently fixed (Sep '22)
9) contact and favorite contact list issue (missing contacts, double contacts): apparently fixed (Sep '22)
10) NFC Google wallet issues with the new Oct 2022 update A_12.0.21.W10.V000L1 - device is not certified in google playstore, (with the old version A_12.0.20.W10.V000L1 NFC google wallet is still working and device is also certified in google playstore): apparently fixed with PD2186C_A_12.0.21.3.W10.V000L1 & PD2186B_A_12.0.21.3.W10.V000L1 (Nov '22)

(new, December 8th)
11) NFC Google Wallet is not working anymore, "smartphone does not meet the software requirements - rooted or non certified software on the phone" with PD2186C_A_12.0.21.84.W10.V000L1


=> If you have any further issue, please share.

A bug I recently noticed has to do with the auto brightness setting. When the phone is in a very bright environment it goes into an ultra bright mode that is great as it also alters the colors to enhance the screen visibility. The problem is when it goes back to normal lighting, the brightness returns to normal, but the colors remain altered. It takes a reboot to get the colors back to normal.

Since today and after the last update my google Wallet is not working anymore, "smartphone does not meet the software requirements - rooted or non certified software on the phone" with PD2186C_A_12.0.21.84.W10.V000L1 - check #49 of this thread.

    Dear Forum,

    after scanning the x60 and x70 threads about notification issues I'm still struggling with missing notifications and badges for certain apps [in this case Signal and Threema]. What I did so far:

    - uninstall com.vivo.pem via ADB App Control
    - set notification settings correctly for the apps: (Allow notification, allow smart notification, Floating notifications on (Threema, Signal), Lock screen notifications on (Threema, Signal), display notification details on lock screen, Chats: priority display) // (Home Screen icon badges only for Whatsapp available for some reason)
    - set single permission settings for the apps: autostart on, startup on, floating window on, desktop shotcuts on, display on lock screen on, background pop-ups on, Remove permissions and free up space off
    - set display settings: show on the off-screen on, show on the lock screen on, show on the home screen on, show in the status bar on, notification method: original icon
    - set battery settings correctly: Boost mode, saving mode off, high background power usage on, always on display on, optimize battery life off, auto enable battery saver off

    [Phone settings: Drawer style, dark mode, Android Style control center, Vivo Origin System Launcher]

    Whatsapp is working: Home Screen notifications, badges, also lock screen notifications - Threema and Signal are not working, driving me a bit crazy. "Sometimes" there is a notification sound, sometimes not. Starring at the lock screen with turned on blue ambilight, it sometimes appears, sometimes not. So my questions:

    1) Is there anyone who has experience with Signal and Threema notifications on a Vivo device and could share his/her solution?
    2) Should I uninstall also com.vivo.abe and com.iqoo.powersaving?
    3) There are no badges for almost all third party apps (Whatsapp badges are working) - is there a way to change it, to get also badges for Signal, Threema, Telegram and so on? (Change Launcher?)

    I appreciate your help!
    the problem is dark mode. I have the same problem with Telegram. with clear mode no problem.

    You are right about origin os...thanks again, I didn't put previously in boost mode and I only disabled com.vivo.pem...do you think that disabling is not enough?
    To be honest, I do not know. While getting it working step by step I was very impatient at some point, so I can not tell you which setting is really needed to get it working - please feel free to test it step by step to figure out which settings are really needed. I will post my settings again a bit more structured.

    The only thing I can tell you: I have uninstalled neither com.vivo.abe nor com.iqoo.powersaving, but with the settings below, uninstall of com.vivo.pem and a phone restart my notifications are working perfectly.

    Tested and successfully working with Signal, Telegram, Threema, Whatsapp (Vivo X80 Pro, Origin OS, Dim 9000):
    1) uninstall com.vivo.pem via ADB App Control

    2) set notification settings correctly for the certain app (Settings/Notifications/App notifications/APP):
    2a) allow notification
    2b) allow smart notification
    2c) floating notifications on
    2d) Lock screen notifications on
    2e) display notification details on lock screen on
    2f) Chats: priority display (if there are chats listed, choose priority display)

    3) set single permission settings for the certain app (long press App/App Info/App Permission/Settings Single Permission):
    3a) autostart on
    3b) startup on
    3c) floating window on
    3d) desktop shotcuts on
    3e) display on lock screen on
    3f) background pop-ups on

    4) set single permission settings for the certain app (long press App/App Info/App Permission):
    4a) permissions and free up space off

    5) set display settings (Settings/Notifications/Display settings):
    5a) show on the off-screen on
    5b) show on the lock screen on
    5c) show on the home screen on
    5d) show in the status bar on
    5e) notification method: original icon

    6) set battery settings correctly (Settings/Battery):
    6a) Boost mode on
    6b) saving mode off

    7) set battery settings correctly (Settings/Battery/More settings):
    7a) always on display on
    7b) optimize battery life off
    7c) auto enable battery saver off

    8) set battery settings for App correctly (Settings/Battery/background power consumption/App):
    8a) high background power usage on

    9) Restart Phone

    Same problem with Google's Messages app, so can't see when I receive a SMS.
    I hope they will fix this ASAP.
    1) Set settings of the app like in 1st message
    2) Set settings of battery/energy usage like in 1st message
    3) Switch to bright/light-mode
    4) restart phone


    -> after doing that, almost 100% of all Threema message are shown as notification. Still struggling with AquaMail, but this will be fixed within next days.

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions, but no way to make the Telegram notifactions work...any suggestion? I don't have a sim inside the phone for the moment, but I don't think this is the problem
    1) set settings like in post 1
    2) unmute chat in telegram (telegram itself)
    3) switch into boost mode (battery settings)
    4) allow background activity (battery settings)
    5) turn off dark mode

    6) restart phone

    -> telegram is working perfectly for me with settings from post 1 and dark mode turned off. Always restart your phone to get things work. To be honest, this origin os behaves sometimes really strange :/ hope you get it work.

    Seeing as this is the most active thread here goes. While getting rid of the Chinese crap ware on my 9 pro running origin I have by mistake deleted the browser. So I can not download a APK for Google as it does not allow searching due to me deleting the browser. How the hell do I get round this? Damn and blast.

    Thanks in advance
    Download the apk for Google on your computer then move it to your internal storage on the phone.
