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.

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
Initial FOD related bugs.
Auto brightness reversed.
Dimensions are not perfect.

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.

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

Requirements

My preferred logging format is:
adb logcat -b all -d *:E > logcat-err.log
adb logcat -b all -d > logcat.log
adb shell dmesg > dmesg.log

Then you can upload them to https://del.dog and send me the link for each one.

You're not flashing according to the instructions. The "fastboot reboot fastboot" part doesn't reboot back into bootloader, which is what you're doing. It reboots into "fastbootd" aka fastboot daemon which lives in recovery. You can only flash system/product from there.

Got this flashed with no issues but noticed during setup the finger print sensor isnt lighting up to register my finger. Is this intended?

Can you point me to a guide on how to pull logs. I can stumble me way through installing but I've never had to pull logs and I want to make sure I get you want you need.
I gave instructions in OP. Something else to note though is that you want to reboot, then reproduce right away or the logs will be huge.

Thanks so much for all your hard work!

I had thought there would be many custom roms for this phone but does not seem to be the case at the moment, haha. PA would've been top 3 for me no matter how many options there were, though, so really happy this worked for me!

Is there any way to get magisk/xposed/(ultimately ViperAudio is what I'm after) working with this rom?

I'm hesitant to do any flashing without knowing whether success is a possibility!

thanks again!

Magisk is broken IIRC and I have no interest in fixing that. I will not support any other mods either.
