We’re really excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Pie betas.

On first launch, you’ll notice a clean setup with a beautiful wallpaper from Hampus Olsson, who teamed up with us again to create several beautiful pieces of artwork. For those who are unfamiliar, Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose design stands itself and we’re glad to have him onboard. We also added further UI touches that we believe enhances the overall user experience.

The beta builds include adjustments and improvements on top of the stock Android CAF base. The Paranoid Android team and contributors are focusing on squashing existing bugs, and implementing and improving features.

Device-specific issues

- DT2W
- Camera crashes if it detects a face

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported!

a many thanks @33bca for your hard work you put into developing for our a2 lite

what bothers me most before trying your pa rom is the question if i can revert back to stock (inlcuding a/B Partitons and Stock Recovery, Encryption ) without any problem ? and if so what steps do i have to do to revert back to stock ?

normaly i would just make a backup from within twrp of my stock Phone and then do a restore if needed but as i unterstand it right thats not possible at the moment with the extisting versions of twrp for our a2 lite ? so maybe just get a2 lite into fastboot mode and flash an original fastboot image ?

and some more questions @33bca on your instructions to install the rom:
Requirements

* Required * firmware version must be based on P-based builds.
so one must have 10.0.3.0 or 10.0.4.0 version of stock firmware on the a2 lite?
Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if the storage was encrypted previously.
how do i find out if phone is encrypted or not ? if i goto settings and then security & location - advanced and if there under encryption and credentials at encrypt phone it says encrypted - then i have to format data (from whithin stock rom or from within twrp ?

Instructions:
  • Boot recovery from fastboot (TWRP recovery for Mi A2 Lite)
so here i use your bootable twrp img file (from your first link) with the command "fastboot boot recovery twrp-daisy-3.2.3-0-offain.img" ?
  • Format /system and /data
ist this the step you mention in the requirements or to i have to do this additionally to the step in the requirements ?
  • Install AOSPA zip package
just flash your pa rom within twrp ?
  • Install [optional] TWRP flashable
so here i flash the twrp (flashable from your second link) within twrp ?

and finally when should the "Forced encryption disabler" be flashed right after first time booting into twrp or after formating system and data ?
