Thank you for a good job on this Rom PA, I have a problem with the color in the display settings, I chose the color to be increased in the display settings, but the phone always changes the color to natural automatically. I tried choosing to switch to the enhanced color but it couldn't, the solution was to reboot the phone. I'm on a PA Quartz 5, I hope the developer can fix this. thank you, sorry my english is bad

Anyone tried? Major bugs?
Android auto works?
Trying the Ruby build with Android 11 (link some post above)
Very good first impression
Android auto ok
All app ok, Migrate backup ok
Very Smooth and fast, good Ram management
Only safetynet cts is failed ...
Will test some more

    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.


    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.
