We’re really excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Pie betas.

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. For those who are unfamiliar, 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 enhances the overall user experience.

The beta builds include adjustments and improvements on top of the stock Android CAF base. The Paranoid Android team and contributors are focusing on squashing existing bugs, and implementing and improving features.

Device-specific issues

- "Fingerprint Hardware Not Available" can occur

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported!

This is awesome! I first used PA back when it's biggest feature was navbar and status bar colors. Super excited to be downloading it now.

Awesome. I do have one correction, though: most recent TWRP builds DO have touch support, mainly if it's installed via the flashable zip OR with the patched boot img for stock. Just figured I'd mention that.
Could you provide an link to the patched boot image? I never brought the twrp touchscreen to life when I tried using it from pie

Looks like there's a bootloop issue installing magisk and flashing twrp from the installer zip to both partitions, anyone else have this issue?

Edit: Looks like after installing the ROM - it overwrites the recovery flash from the above-patched twrp (Jan-Patch from Reddit source), it then just forces the boot to hang.

Edit 2:Looks like I got it to work, after installing the ROM, reboot back into recovery mode, flash the jan-patch twrp img again using fastboot.

Edit 3: Nope looks like a persistent bootloop. Gonna leave this ROM alone until it gets magisk and a proper TWRP fixed

Looks like the boot loop issue is occurring on both this ROM and the AOSIP ROM, leads me to believe this might be an issue with the patched TWRP possibly?

Anybody able to get this working with gapps? If I flash the rom it boots fine. If I flash twrp with it, it boots fine. But once I try to flash gapps it just hangs on the aospa boot animation

I tried with opengapps pico and nano as well as simplegapps

I'm running aosip rom at the moment. I use the twrp installer each and every time I flash something. In the same session

Are we talking about the same thing? The patch image in this thread or the original TWRP img from the original TWRP website?

After installing I can no longer access adb or fastboot commands, tried multiple devices, they all still detect my V40 in ADB but not the PH-1, any idea why?
