Paranoid Android Quartz 5 - OnePlus 6T


Recognized Developer
May 10, 2014

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.

I've been waiting for a good custom ROM to finally get me off of OOS. So, how would I go about flashing this? I'm on the latest open beta, OB4 I believe
If you could've just read a few messages back you'll know that base is 10.3. oh and, if you don't know how to flash, i suggest research and help yourself.

Any screenshots or a video review? I rooted OP6T long ago but never flashed any custom ROM yet, or I'd say never needed another ROM given the performance and features of OOS... And one year using the device with same OS is too much :p

Would love to flash it once it is stable

I know this does not go here but it is the first Android 10 rom that I try.
I have a rather annoying bug that prevents me from connecting the phone via USB to the PC and does not let me transfer data, just load it.
I have the latest version in both slots.
