Same here bro I've been waiting for updates. I've been using this rom fo a long time with some bugs but now I've switched my stock xperia rom and just waiting for the final version which could have less or no bugs.

Same. I can live a few weeks with the random restarts and some other bugs but I was hoping to get some kind of update soon enough. As good as this rom is, maybe I should start looking for another one. At least until the dev has some time to prepare the updates or whatever.

@tomgus1 sorry for the question but there are any chance we will see updates for this incredible ROM?


According to github and team members over Discord, development has been slow across the board. And with Google rapidly pushing out Android Q, there is a chance that we won't see a full-fledged PA9 at all.



Here's to hope that they won't abandon PA9 like they did with Oreo last year.

Let's hope so than. Thanks a lot for the reply.

I don't think this phone handles Q very well

And why not? It's a device supported by Sony Open Devices Program, with an open-source kernel based on the current mainline version and the SoC still can do some heavy work thanks to A72 cores of its big cluster (that BTW still outperform many currently available low and mid-range SoCs) and also is pretty capable on the GPU side, supporting Vulkan and OpenGL ES 3.2. The only point that is a little on the low side is the RAM as it's just 3 GB, but that's still more than many currently available Android One/Android Go devices running Android Pie from factory have at their disposal...

TL;DR Android Q (and I dare to say even R) is totally doable on Xperia X/X Compact, as long as there's developers wiling to support those devices.

And the developers are the problem....Sony will probably stop supporting the X/Xc....like this is a 2016 phone right.....but now after thinking more about it I think the pixel 3a also has a 600 series processor so you're right...it will probably still be supported

It's a 2016 phone all right, but the "only" thing needed from sony is the odm. Right now as already said we have the latest mainline kernel, so the prospects are very good, at least for the near future. They will eventually drop support, but even that could be no problem, you can infact build ROM even with older kernel (have seen it done, never done it myself). Obviously this as is drawback but sometimes they are minor in comparison to the new version optimization. We will see. Don't loose hope :)
And sorry for the long OT.

    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.

    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 :).

    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. ?*♂️
