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.

Device-specific issues
Brightness flashing whenever using FOD.
Dimensions are off for a ton of stuff.
Auto brightness doesn't work.

There are likely many other issues, these are just the most prominent to me. Don't come into this with the expectation any issue you come across will be fixed in a timely manner.

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported & GApps are included!

Requirements

Make sure you are on an OOS 10+ vendor, and know how to debug when you run into issues. My preferred logging format is:
adb logcat -b all -d *:E > logcat-err.log
adb logcat -b all -d > logcat.log
adb shell dmesg > dmesg.log

Then you can zip them up and link them here in the thread.

Download

You're not flashing according to the instructions. The "fastboot reboot fastboot" part doesn't reboot back into bootloader, which is what you're doing. It reboots into "fastbootd" aka fastboot daemon which lives in recovery. You can only flash system/product from there.

You are in bootloader, not in fastboot. This is what we see by command output

Even if you mess up the install, you don't need MSMTool. Just flash factory images extracted from payload.

No, it lights up for me. Weird. Send logz and I'll look.
