I installed this Rom yesterday after Netflix stopped running on my OnePlus 7t pro. After I found out what to do with Payload.bin it was relatively easy. This should be mentioned in the explanation.

It runs really well. The device used only about 4% battery in the night. Otherwise it was always at least 35%. Everything seems to run so far and I am really positively surprised.

I would really appreciate a double tap to wake up the inactivity display option. Unfortunately this option is only available for the single tap.

Keep it up

Is there a simple solution to use the original motionwallpapers of the Op7t pro?

Anyone know how to disable this? It will sometimes appear when I swipe up from the bottom of the screen, which is very irritating.

Edited: My bad, this is a function of Nova Launcher I think, not paranoid launcher. If anyone know how to disable it pls let me know. Thanks

I think you can disable it in gestures settings .. something like "swipe down on home screen"

is the rom stable enough for daily usage?
Just flashed this Rom yesterday, it's stable overall, but with a few bugs. The screen flickers, but can be fix by turning on DC dimming( will still have a little) and Idle drain is a little higher than stock, 4% of battery drained in around 6hrs. Other than that, all good.

Also, the colour calibration is the same as the default one in stock, if you prefer 'Natural', this isn't for you.

Just boot to fastboot d then follow the instructions.

Enable USB debugging, plug in your phone to the computer, open command prompt in platform tools folder in your computer ( you can download platform tools online, just google it), type 'adb devices', 'adb reboot fastboot' then you will be in fastboot d.
U mean 1st extract paranoid rom in payload dumper folder/then moved to adb folder/then flash through fast boot ?

Sry for bad explain ☺️

    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!

    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
    5
    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 .
