We are very excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Ruby, based on Android 11.

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.

Device-specific issues
- Miracast is probably broken
- You tell me!

Requirements

Ginkgo users: Make sure you're on latest available 11.0 China Beta firmware before flashing the ROM.
Willow users: Make sure you're on latest available 10.0 Stable firmware before flashing the ROM.

If you have bugs, report them to the dev with logs etc. and contribute to make the rom bug-free.
If you don't want to contribute, use it as it is and say at least thanks to the dev who provided his work freely here on XDA:) The dev owes you absolutely nothing and you're not his customer cause you did not pay him.

I recommend to read the FORUM RULES especially those:


2.1 Language: XDA is a worldwide community. As a result, what may be OK to say in your part of the world, may not be OK elsewhere. Please don't direct profanity, sexually explicit language or other offensive content toward Members or their work. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.

2.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: XDA is about sharing and this does not involve virtual yelling (flaming) or rudeness. Flaming or posting with a lack of respect is unacceptable. Treat new members in the manner in which you would like to have been treated when you were a new member. When dealing with any member, provide them with guidance, advice and instructions when you can, showing them respect and courtesy. Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.

2.4 Personal attacks, racial, political and / or religious discussions: XDA is a discussion forum about certain mobile phones. Mobile phones are not racial, political, religious or personally offensive and therefore, none of these types of discussions are permitted on XDA.


If you come across this just hit the report button and let the mods handle it, do not respond or become part of such a discussion:good

Hey, thanks for your grear job here, i´m using PA Quartz as a daily driver since july, and for sure i´m looking forward to PA Ruby updates.
One thing i love from PA Quartz is the Safety Net compatibility out-of-the-box, and i just want to ask, Ruby will remain this absolutely grear feature? this is absolute mandatory for me, in order -for example- to use my banking apps.

Thanks in advance for any feedback,
Cheers!

I am using Ruby alpha 1 and it passes safety net, so i believe the answer is yes.

Thank you so much. I'm using this Rom. It's fantastic. I'm using it on the Redmi Note 8T (willow)

I haven't encountered any issues.

The only bug I've encountered so far (and it seems to be in your screenshot). Is that on the home screen, the Google Search Box has disappeared and I can't get it back.

I think it may of been where I and you (screenshot guy), would of click 'accept' to a Google assistant notification to bring Google assistant up by swiping up from the bottom corner. I don't know how to compile an bug report and send it to the developer.

But amazing Rom. Especially how i can't seem to find an official Rom for Paranoid Android that works on the 8T model (willow)
