We are very excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Quartz, based on Android 10.

On the 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. Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose design stands for itself and we’re glad to have him onboard. We also added further UI touches that we believe enhance the overall user experience. You can find all of the Paranoid Android wallpapers and many more in the Abstruct app, included in our builds.

Our builds are based on the Code Aurora Forum Android base, which is optimized for Qualcomm platforms and has a higher degree of performance, battery life, and functionality compared to the Android Open Source Project platform. The Paranoid Android team and contributors are focusing on squashing existing bugs, and implementing and improving features, performance, and stability. We are dedicated to providing a user experience with the stability that you can expect from stock ROMs with best-in-class performance and features to help you get the most out of your device.

Starting off 8pro rom development with some beta paranoid android builds. Me and @ZVNexus have been working hard to get stable builds up and running for the 8/8pro. These builds are unified so it will work on both 8/8pro but since ZVNexus is the op8 maintainer, i will leave it up to him to make a separate thread.

Everything works afaik, except for maybe fod on the 8pro, it's reported working fine on op8 though, could just be a messed up fod size for the 8pro, but it's being looked into. If fod works for you, please let me know. Alternatively these builds include ParanoidFaceSense (Face unlock) as well.

Sources
Kernel - Note: This is not an official PA kernel, just a modified stock kernel to get it working on PA, arter97 will be our kernel maintainer, when official releases rollout

Huge thanks to Oneplus for providing the PA team with a few dev units, this wouldn't be possible without you guys!

The current kernels we have for the 8pro are made for stock rom, and will most likely not work, also we include custom things in our kernel for features etc. that most custom kernels do not provide. When there are custom kernels available for custom roms, you are free to use them but your results aren't guaranteed, therefore the team does not support them as far as offering solutions to any issues you may have

From my testing it works but it's super hard to enroll and after enrollment it just doesn't recognize your fingerprint, it's strange because it works fine on the regular op8, so it seems it might be the wrong fod sizes. Should be fixed in the next build

Thank you. Indeed CAF changed something and I also can't get a kernel to boot when compiled with either GCC 9 or 10.
Apologies for the OT.

It's awesome to see you guys here so short after the device is released!
