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.

How is this rom compared to pixel experience?
In first, this in an alpha version, then there is some bugs. You can use it for a daily rom. Personally, it's my favorite ROM since a lot of years.

I beleve, she is only base on caf then it's optimise for Qualcomm's device. Fluidity and good performance, and very good battery life.

I repeate, it's an alpha version, let the dev work and you'll see the magic ;)

Same for me, it's really frustating, i don't know why it's shown in the instructions, i waste several hours by trying this and install at least PE + again?!
No problems for me, I did like that :

Flash the latest global ROM 04/11 miui 11
Flash magisk and twrp recovery ( recommended )
Reboot in recovery
Format data
Reboot in recovery again
Flash AOSPA
Flash gapps ( micro package )
Flash magisk for root ( optional )
Reboot

I have tried with another firmware, and this disappeared with the 04/11 version.

You need to format data in the wipe section directly.
And use another firmware, flash the full ROM of stable miui 11 of 04/11. The xiaomi.EU 's ROM is not the good firmware, I think.
