Details:

As of right now, these builds do not include Hover. The ParanoidAndroid team is still cleaning up the source code and will release it when they see fit. As soon as they do, I'll include it in my builds. Pie AND Peek are now included.

I've been making nightly builds of ParanoidAndroid for a while, and I figured I might as well share them for anyone who's interested. Some people are interested in just the latest nightlies with the merged codes from the gerrit, and for them I have a clean build with exactly that. Whatever changes are officially merged in gerrit are in these nightlies. However, I know some people, including myself, are also interested in using Halo on my Nexus 5. For those people, I also have a build that is exactly the same, but with Halo added. Download whichever you're interested in!

I didn't change anything from the PA team, so the kernel and everything else is the PA team's work. Depending on the latest merges, I may or may not edit a few lines so that Halo still works with the newest changes.

Disclaimer:
Your warranty is now void. Use at your own risk.
In other words: It is your choice to use this software,
I am not responsible for any damage or problems you may have.

Changelog:
For the latest changes added, check the merged section of the PA gerrit, found here. You can also check my most recent post in the thread. With every new build, I'll post a changelog and direct link to the builds in the thread.

Installation instructions:

Coming from another ROM
1. Do a nandroid backup (enter recovery -> backup)
2. Wipe system, data, and cache
3. Flash ROM + Gapps
4. Reboot and enjoy

Coming from official ParanoidAndroid or an older nightly
1. Do a nandroid backup
2. Flash ROM
3. Reboot and enjoy

Downloads:
- Latest nightlies with Halo uploaded to my Google Drive - Latest nightly: pa_hammerhead-4.3-BETA6-20140524.zip

- Latest nightlies without Halo uploaded to my Google Drive - Latest nightly: pa_hammerhead-4.3-BETA6-20140523.zip

- PA Gapps

Note: I won't build and upload a new nightly if there's nothing new to add. If there isn't a new nightly for the day, then check the gerrit before PMing me to ask for a new build.

thanks for sharing. I had been able to merge halo until around the beta 4 merges, so thank you!

Out of curiosity - why isn't PA doing this themselves if it works fine?

jabza, this works great! why don't you submit your merges for the halo framework and settings to the AOSPA github?

They want their official releases to be 100% rock solid stable. With these nightlies, you might run into some bugs here or there. With 4.4, the PA team has a new philosophy where they want the user experience to be as close to stock (and bug-free) as possible.

That being said, I've run into almost no bugs in running PA nightlies, so it's probably a "just in case" sort of thing.

Woops, sorry. I didn't see your post earlier; it must've showed up while I was typing my response to the other. And because the PA team is still working on it, so they don't want it merged yet. Besides, I'm not doing much besides compiling it, so it's predominantly their work. If I make any significant patches, though, they'll be submitted to the gerrit.

it seems most of the recent merges have been rebasing and resolving conflicts, so i don't think the PA team would mind if you shared your conflict resolutions to get Halo working!

To anybody getting antsy, I haven't uploaded a new nightly recently because there haven't been any changes since the last one. Thus, there's no use spending time building/uploading one and having you download it, as it'll be the exact same ROM.
