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
- You tell me.

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported! It will most likely break video recording and DT2W, unless explicitly mentioned by the developer.

Requirements

Ginkgo users: Make sure you're on latest available 10.0 china firmware before flashing the ROM.
Willow users: Make sure you're on latest available stable firmware before flashing the ROM.

  • We highly recommend to use latest official TWRP or any stable recovery for flashing PA.

Notice

Q: KCAL doesn't work? Nothing happens when I modify values.
KCAL works, you just need to toggle night mode twice for the changes to reflect. Recommended to use FKM.
