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.

This update includes the following device specific changes:
  • Switched to CAF's implementation of Bluetooth. (Connects even faster now)

  • Added two new boosts which are mentioned in CAF's Boost Framework, i.e, panel-veiw and pre-fling boost.
  • Stopped balancing MDSS and kgsl-3d0 IRQs
  • Modified the thermal config. Increased the max frequency for thermal throttling and the temperature threshold to 46C. (Celsius)
  • Increased the Charging threshold by 4 degrees. (Celsius)
  • Removed unnecessary overlays that caused animation breaks and jerks.
  • Updated Common blobs from LA.UM.8.6.r1-04400-89xx.0

Kernel side changes :-
  • Added power saving flags to all panels.
  • Fixed Idle drain (it should be 2-5% because of gapps).
  • Using GCC-10.
  • Avoid RCU CPU stall warning and RT throttling.
  • Fixed severe lag when a device wakes up from deep sleep.

OTA will work. Those in Quartz 3 will recieve OTA updates gradually!
