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!

Starting off 8pro rom development with some beta paranoid android builds. Me and @ZVNexus have been working hard to get stable builds up and running for the 8/8pro. These builds are unified so it will work on both 8/8pro but since ZVNexus is the op8 maintainer, i will leave it up to him to make a separate thread.

Everything works afaik, except for maybe fod on the 8pro, it's reported working fine on op8 though, could just be a messed up fod size for the 8pro, but it's being looked into. If fod works for you, please let me know. Alternatively these builds include ParanoidFaceSense (Face unlock) as well.

Kernel - Note: This is not an official PA kernel, just a modified stock kernel to get it working on PA, arter97 will be our kernel maintainer, when official releases rollout

Huge thanks to Oneplus for providing the PA team with a few dev units, this wouldn't be possible without you guys!

great! first AOSP based ROM
Could you add a list of things not working?
you say custom kernel not supported, do you mean it will work but you dont give help if someone running custom kernel?

The current kernels we have for the 8pro are made for stock rom, and will most likely not work, also we include custom things in our kernel for features etc. that most custom kernels do not provide. When there are custom kernels available for custom roms, you are free to use them but your results aren't guaranteed, therefore the team does not support them as far as offering solutions to any issues you may have

Thank you. Indeed CAF changed something and I also can't get a kernel to boot when compiled with either GCC 9 or 10.
Apologies for the OT.

It's awesome to see you guys here so short after the device is released!
I'm assuming you need some commits from upstream, not sure I'm not kernel dev. Just a framework dev xD, but I think our kernel will be done for gcc soon

Hi guys, how fix this error
system & product partition not found

Make sure you're following the instructions, reboot to fastboot (bootloade, you can use adb reboot bootloader), from there type fastboot reboot fastboot then once it boots into fastbootd, fastboot -w and flash the images

not to be rude but we have two fully working versions of TWRP. Why not build a normal ROM zip, as it's infinitely easier for people to actually flash it.

We had issues with update engine and dynamic partitions. Only solution we've found so far is to including a prebuilt stock vendor image so that vendor doesn't get "removed" when flashing zips. It's not fully tested and we are looking for other ways. Google has not added proper support for flashable zips for devices with dynamic partitions using prebuilt vendors yet, that's why devices like op7tpro have had their issues with twrp as well

not sure what i did wrong but im currently in a bootloop, I formatted the data and im running the latest oos update any idea boss?

After fastboot -w and flashing all the images, I usually reboot to stock recovery and wipe data and format again as a extra measure. When you say bootloops do you mean the bootanimation is looping?

    After rebooting to TWRP (not installed) and then installing magisk, I get stuck in a fastboot bootloop. wouldn't recommend magisk with this just yet, unless I'm doing something wrong.

    Probably something with init or maybe even kernel, I'll take a look around to see if I need any modifications for magisk functionality
