So this is my very first attempt in ROM porting.



Some of you may have heard of tablet mode and if you have tried it you know well that it smashes your phone. Apps are small, their layout is screwed, things overlap, crash or stop working, Google Play forbids you to download, if you tried AOKP you cant even use launcher and phone. In short, it is a mess.

PARANOIDANDROID changed that. It does not "heal" tablet mode, it obliterates the boundaries. You define how big or small apps are, you define in which UI they display, no matter if your phone runs in tablet or phone mode, which also you can define. Customize every single entity on your phone, lockscreen, navigationbar, system-components, widgets, apps. If you prefer stay with your three bearpaw buttons + drop-down curtain or switch to a combined navigationbar + drop-up notificationcenter, enjoy Youtube in 3D, Gmail and settings in 2-columns, Chrome in its better mobile UI, etc. Nothing overlaps, nothing crashes, everything works as you'd expect. This is completely new ground and has never been realized before, it is lightyears from tablet mode.
Install ROM: http://d-h.st/ufK
Install Google Apps: http://d-h.st/wCo (and only these! other GApps will have Play Store broken in tablet mode!)
Wipe caches, factory reset is a must if you're coming from another rom than CM9
  • If automatic brightness is disabled, button backlight doesn't turn on after Power button is pressed
Maybe something else, you tell me
I used jerl92's CM9 build as a base, HWComposer libraries and kernel from Andromadus Mimicry (these made this ROM insanely fast) and hdorius' DHD port. Sorry for being a "winzip dev", as I'm yet a complete noob in Android development

Thanks to:
  • ahjavery for his ROM porting guide
  • blk_jack and the whole Andromadus team for their great work
  • D4rKn3sSyS and molesarecoming for such a great ROM
  • Xylograph for his tips and porting help

Version 0.5 beta (09-Aug-2012)
  • Terminal Emulator, Gallery and LatinIME FCs/UI bugs fixed.
  • GApps removed. Use a separate package to install them.
  • Default UI is changed to "Phone mode (optimized)".
  • Button backlight bug not fixed yet.

Version 0 beta (30-Jul-2012)
  • Keyboard bug fixed
  • Removed apps: Adobe Flash Player, Apex & Nova Launchers, Dropbox, ES File Explorer, ROM Manager. Google Apps left, but probably will be removed later.
  • Improved automatic brightness accuracy
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi support enabled
  • adb remount error fixed
  • UI lagging is gone — now using kernel and libs from Andromadus (hope blk_jack won't kill me for that)
... can I call this a beta now?

Version 0 alpha (21-Jul-2012)
First public release.

:P So any chance you already patched this rom with pDroid [android privacy protection patch]? (otherwise not sure where the 'paranoid' comes in :P)

I don't know why did they decide to call this ParanoidAndroid (maybe with the exception of this), but it doesn't have pDroid patches installed.
The main feature of this ROM is to switch between Tablet and Phone layouts selectively for every application.

Ahh, musical inspiration. Though I suppose if someone wanted to make this work with pdroid would simply use the auto-patcher (would just have to know if its aokp, cm9, etc and the rom date for it to make an appropriate pdroid zip patch).

Speaking of which what type of rom is it based off of for the ICS? Sense, CM9, AOKP, AOSP? Looks almost AOKP from the screenshots.

It is based of jerl92 unoffical cm9 wich is stated in the first post.
