We are very excited to announce the alpha of Paranoid Android Sapphire, based on Android 12.

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.


Notice
As we are growing on our list of supported devices in each release, we require of a stronger build environment so we can speed up the compilation process for releases. Based on the actual Quartz 4 list, we support over 30 devices, which takes between 2 and 3 days for all the builds to be completed without counting possible compilation issues or rebuild needs, based on our current specs.

We kindly ask all of you that are in position to donate anything, to help and support us so we can provide better and faster build releases, as well as increase the download speed of our servers, all looking for your enjoyment.


Device-specific issues
[*] Pocket-detection is less than ideal, it may result in accidental wake-ups or ignored gestures
[*] Bootanimation will pause for a split second. This is a known issue from the kernel

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.

Requirements
Make sure you are coming from any Android 11 based OxygenOS build, stable is recommended.

Downloads
You can always get our Beta builds from our Telegram Group or directly download them from here:

(Note, OP9 & Pro builds are no longer unified)

Note: Custom kernels are not supported unless the kernel says it supports AOSPA and GMS is included!


Instructions
[1] Download the latest fastboot zip we released (hint: it has an -img appended to zip name)
[2] Reboot to bootloader.
[3] Wipe userdata with the command "fastboot -w"
[3] Flash the fastboot zip with "fastboot update aospa-*-image.zip"
[4] Reboot.

Changelog

- Fixed post boot script applying incorrect tuning values
- Dimensions synced with other custom ROMs

Here are platform-wise highlights:

- New VRR method implemented to drastically improve battery life
- The memory allocator is now back to jemalloc, which improves performance throughout the system
- Optimized bionic, memory routines (ported by xboxfanj)
- zlib-ng from kdrag0n’s ProtonAOSP to improve performance
- Latest libjpeg-turbo merged to improve imaging performance
- Latest CAF tag merged

Starting with Beta 1, you must clean flash due to recent commits related to userdata.

I'm currently on Evo A11 and earlier I was on latest OOS 11. Do I have to get back to OOS to flash paranoid a12 or it's fine to go from Evolution A11?

My guess is that it doesn't include Material YOU right? Because that hasn't been released to AOSP yet?
it does include monet by kdrag0n.
Yes.
Mobile data/service not working. Vodafone Germany. Smartphone is rebooting to fastboot after several mobile service connects and disconnects
Send logs please.
Do I need to root or unlock bootloader to flash this?
you need to unlock bl.

    We’re excited to announce the first Beta build of Paranoid Android Sapphire.

    The platform had more than PA-specific 700 commits from the last Alpha release, along with a huge list of device-specific improvements.

    Here are some device-specific highlights:

    - Prebuilt blobs are revamped to fix various issues (audio, video, NFC, etc)
    - Sleep mode is changed to fix excessive idle battery drain
    - VRR implementation is now working, which will improve battery life a lot
    - Corner masks are now done properly
    - Fingerprint improvements
    - Kernel switched to a customized version of arter97 kernel

    Here are platform-wise highlights:

    - Latest CAF tag merged
    - kdrag0n’s Repainter service integrated
    - Optimized bionic, memory routines (ported by xboxfanj)
    - Latest f2fs-tools
    - Few optimizations merged from kdrag0n’s ProtonAOSP
    - Burn-in protection feature added

    There’s a lot more stuff going under the hood, especially the big kernel switch. All in all, this build will be drastically different from previous builds.

    With that said, there are some known issues:

    - Mobile network will initialize a bit slowly after boot
    - Wi-Fi may not work on a few reboots. You may have to reboot multiple times for Wi-Fi to work
    - Pocket-detection is less than ideal, it may result in accidental wake-ups or ignored gestures
    - Bootanimation will pause for a split second. This is a known issue from the kernel

    Enjoy!

    A clean flash is highly recommended.

    We’re excited to announce the updated Beta build of Paranoid Android Sapphire, based on Android 12L.

    We're sticking with "Beta 1" naming to match the status of other PA releases, but rest assured, it is a new build.

    The platform had more than PA-specific 500 commits from the last Beta release.

    Device-wise, the new build includes the latest arter97 kernel r20.
    Please refer to its thread for relevant changes.

    The PA device tree also has been modified to support future arter97 kernel builds as well.

    Here are some device-specific changes:

    - Fixed post boot script applying incorrect tuning values
    - Dimensions synced with other custom ROMs

    And here are some platform-wise highlights:

    - New VRR method implemented to drastically improve battery life
    - The memory allocator is now back to jemalloc, which improves performance throughout the system
    - Optimized bionic, memory routines (ported by xboxfanj)
    - zlib-ng from kdrag0n’s ProtonAOSP to improve performance
    - Latest libjpeg-turbo merged to improve imaging performance
    - Latest CAF tag merged

    As always, there’s a lot more stuff going under the hood, especially the new kernel release.

    Enjoy!

    A clean flash is highly recommended.
