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 5 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.

Is Netflix working? On many roms, starting netflix caused a reboot, I tried Pixel experience, Evolution X and a previous Version of Paranoid Quartz.

Installed the ROM yesterday and I have to say GREAT JOB.

I don't know if it's the CAF base but the battery life is really good and comparable to stock. Very smooth UI as well.

Didn't find any bugs yet, but will check Netflix soon!

Bugs so far ?

Haven't tried the ROM yet. I will if Duo and Assistant work, and there are no Bluetooth issues - those are the key ones from Stock that I am looking to verify before I switch

I can confirm that Assistant works perfectly, with locked screen and unlocked. I don't have Bluetooth issues compared to other ROMs that I have tried like Lineage OS, and Google duo other else confirm that mic is working.

Great ROM! Everything seems to be working fine, although the lock screen wallpaper doesn't change, it just stays the same as the home screen.

    Just dropping by to say that an alpha version of PA Ruby has been available for mata for a few weeks now. Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere (not even on the official telegram channel which is strange). Anyways, I haven't tried it, and I personally don't recommend anyone to run alpha software on their daily device but you can find it here if anyone's interested
    Yeah that is strange, I'm in the telegram too and been waiting patiently to hear about it. May give this a try in my free time and report back.

    But, I saw people saying that the touch doesn't work in TWRP. Do you think I can sideload in case the touch doesn't work?

    Correct. Touch in TWRP didn't work for me. However, on the Essential Development Telegram (https://t.me/EssentialPH1DEV) group you can find a TWRP image (boottwrp.img) that does have functional touch. I used that for my initial boot into TWRP and then flash the OFFICIAL TWRP zip as part of my flashing procedure. Touch does work for me now. Hopefully that helps some folks.

    Flashed a while back, spent a good while sorting out some stuff after it bootlooped. Leaving that here in case it helps someone else:


    Haven't run it for more than a few hours so can't comment on performance/battery life. Magisk doesn't pass SafetyNet so no GPay. Netflix also doesn't show up on the Play Store - I sideloaded the APK with APKMirror's app and it seems to work for me. Will test out battery life and Google Camera down the line and update the post. Hope this helps someone!

    Thank you. Did you notice there's a ASOP firmware/vendor available from Essential now? "Vendor (AOSP) Release | Q 10 - QQ1A.200105.088" over at https://www.essential.com/developer/current-builds
    Yes, I am aware. However, that vendor image is not compatible with this current beta. You want to use Essential's stock vendor from the February factory image.
