Paranoid Android Quartz 5 - Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro

https%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FAHI7sQc.png


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 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.

Till now I havent found any bug in this rom:good:. Thanks for your sharing. I'd love to give you a little suggestion about the Volume Panel. Can you add the fingerprint and face unlock vibrations switch in the next update? It would be much great if your can consider it. Anyway, I really appreciate your excellent work.

Facial unlock

Hi,

The rom is very smooth, everything works very well on my Mi8pro. Just a question. With miui the facial unlock worked even if there was no light in the ambient. Now it doesn't work in that condition.

Is there something i could do?

Thanks a lot for your work!!!

Find this link on build.prop:
vendor.camera.aux.packagelist=org.codeaurora.snapcam,com.android.camera,org.lineageos.snap

Delete org.lineageos.snap and add co.aospa.facesense instead

And also add this line bellow:
ro.face.ext_service.cam_id=5

Then reboot your phone, enjoy[emoji2]

Also you can join the telegram group @mi8proGlobalOfficial to get more about it.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro
very cool that they did support for mi 8 pro. this will make your firmware practically the only one that users of this gadget will install. now on the firmware market for mi 8 pro in Russia there is only miui firmware and the like. but the problem is that the mi 8 pro does not have normal twrp support. I've been looking for a working twrp on the forums for over a week. I like the firmware, even in spite of some lags, which are rare. mainly related to stability. If I were you, I would have embedded gcam into the firmware, since this is the only normal camera that can give good work to photo modules. in general you are great, keep it up, if the updates are stable, you can make a paid upgrade. even $ 1-2 will help you support the project. the main thing is that there is always a free version to try !!

    Thank you for reply, I try your instruction but I can’t boot to system alway boot at the logo only, same with clean flash rom. :(
    I had the same problem.
    the only way to resolve it was to flash the official miui and then flash PA

    Try to reboot your device and disable the fingerprint.
    Now I have solved this problem.Later I will post the steps.Thank you all the same.
