Paranoid Android Pie Beta - Xperia X

Search This thread
So I've been using this since yesterday and I must say I am impressed - it's already pretty stable for a beta :D

Magisk modules with root are working fine, Pixel Launcher to have 9.0 recents switcher too...
Even screen calls from Pixel 3 is kinda working (it does show what the caller is speaking but since I live in Poland, the transcript is useless :D)

One question tho - will there be support for Double Tap to wake as I can't seem to make it work?

Also not sure about that but GBoard doesn't seem to respect set haptic feedback in its settings...

Overall, great work and keep it up :D

Everything seems OK here. Only strange thing is this notification that doesn't do nothing and can't be removed. It's not really a problem, just a strange behavior.

Well sure but it's not a real solution. If it's there it's there for a reason. Probably something that doesn't work as intended. Disable it will make it disappear but not really solve the "problem". I generally tend to avoid such partial solution. It's not bothering me, just report it because it's a beta ROM. No arm in it to be there for me.

have you installed busybox?

How good is camera, compared to stock?

Obviously the quality it's less than stock due to Sony software, however looks so really good, if you want to try make a backup first

@tomgus1 Recently discovered that the loudspeaker also doesn't work on stock ROM, so that's a hardware problem, doesn't mean anything with your ROM

Does it have a black viewfinder in low light like the other ROMs? The only thing keeping me from jumping off stock is the camera, I've seen samples in best conditions, but I'm worried about low light.

Is it possibile to install the oem.img with the last twrp (3.2.3-2)? It's added this feature in the last version...

Here my impression after almost a week of use, hope this is helpfull to developers and users too:

Overall system perfomance and stability:
Very very smooth in everything you do. Only a couple of times the system frozed and after something like 5 seconds soft-rebooted itself, one time from system settings and the other one during gmail app configuration. No other major issue in this department after that.

Connectivity:
Phone signal is very strong.
WiFi works well but sometimes hangs when switching between networks (e.g. when I go from home to work sometimes it shows that is connected to the home network even if it's obviusly out of range).
Bluetooth works well with headphones but bad with my car radio (I hear very clear when calling but the other side doesn't hear nothing); regarding the last point I'm sure is not my car because it as always worked well with stock and continues to work well with other devices.

Battery Life:
Almost equal to stock after a couple of days to let it set. A bit worse but not tragically so.

Overall the ROM is the best Pie experience so far, at least in my opinion. Hope to see soon some update :).

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

    On 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 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.

    So,when the new build will be up is recommended to use v6 OEM or we can stay with v5? Should clean flash or simply update?

    Currently waiting on the guy in charge of building to do that.

    As for the updating, all you need to do is update by flashing the zip and flash v6 OEM.

    We noticed this ourselves today. We have a fix already and will be included in our next build.
    Thanks for the work! this rom is fast and less bug..here some screenshot too!!:)

    Ah sorry guys, I'll add that to the OP.

    Personally I've been running this for a few months as daily and I'm pretty happy with it. We just never got round to building for suzu as I'd put in a stupid flag that was causing a 4-5 minute boot time. ?*♂️
