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

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported!

My device is stuck on "Waiting for any device" after executing fastboot reboot fastboot. I can see device in device manager, updated adb / fastboot and tried changing ports.
Anyone knows how to resolve this?

I can see the device in regular fastboot, bot not in fastbootd.

EDIT: I think i fixed it, will flash and see

    With your device turned on and connected through USB, type "adb reboot fastboot"

    I did. Still no luck...

    Do exactly as described:

    With device turned ON and connected to PC type:

    abd devices
    abd reboot fastboot
    fastboot -w
    adb reboot fastboot

    Flash all .img files in PA folder

    Example: "fastboot flash boot boot.img"

    Edit: I assume you have Platform-Tools and running your commands inside platform tools folder!

      Will it have a bad side effect on the device? Like the display, battery, etc.. looks like the phone would go on high brightness for a sec then puffffff...

      If it did , im sure we would have felt something by now .
      Imagine this, as a user you see the flicker 400-500 times a day depending upon the time to unlock.
      A developer testing these cases of flicker might be seeing more than ten times that amount for testing the cause (speaking from experience) . I have not felt any signs of wear and tear to the display even in terms of colors or quality .
      So it's perfectly fine .

      And as you say , the device goes on high Brightness. That depends on the way the rom works .some use the dim layer to read the fingerprint . Some use HBM( high Brightness mode)
      Both have their pros and cons
      The dim layer advantage is that it doesn't make the screen bright during authentication but it causes an ugly smudge of colors to the screen on low brightness
      The HBM mode on the other hand does not apply any layer onto the screen but brightens it up instead and shows a steady flow of light increase . This looks better but is very bad UX because of the change in brightness

      Can anyone confirm if the fingerprint screen flicker is present in this rom? or is it fixed?

      You have to understand that screen flickering is the way in display Fingerprint works on custom roms. When a fingerprint is detected , the screen lights up to read the print and dim layer is applied on the screen causing it to flicker for a second . This can be avoided by lighting up only a part of the screen which is the fingerprint part ( which custom rom developers may not be able to do) . Hence, the whole screen lights up while authentication. Unless somebody finds a way of lighting up only parts of the screen which need to be illuminated , the flicker will always exists .
      The only solution roms use now is to reduce the amount of time the dim layer is applied so as to get a minimum response time for the fingerprint to be read and the device to be unlocked.
      hope that makes sense .
