First time meeting a "tap to wake" option and have a couple of questions:

1) Does it have a significant load on screen digitizer?

2) Does it consume remarkable energy from battery?

    We are very excited to announce the Beta 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.


    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.

    Official Ruby Beta 3.

    Device-specific issues
    1. You tell!

    Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported unless the kernel says it supports PA and GMS is included. Please be on the latest Android 11 update released by Xiaomi. Incase if you have issues with Sensors/persist, please reflash stock 11 from fastboot.


    My preferred logging format is:
    adb logcat -b all -d *:E > logcat-err.log
    adb logcat -b all -d > logcat.log
    adb shell dmesg > dmesg.log

    Then you can upload them to https://del.dog and send me the link for each one.

    Download - Beta 4.

    • Note - you need to be on Stock 11 firmware.
    • Download the latest fastboot zip we released (hint: it has an -image appended to zip name) with Beta 4 tag.
    • Reboot to fastboot
    • Flash the fastboot zip with "fastboot update pa-ruby-4-laurel_sprout-20210506-beta-signed-image.zip"
    • Reboot to recovery and format data.
    • Reboot to system.

    Paranoid Android Ruby Beta 4 is out!

    This build is Production/User and is Enforcing.

    This vendor is based off CAF tag :- 'LA.UM.9.11.r1-03200-NICOBAR.0'', and has been updated completely to R. The usage of stock vendor/blobs is only for camera and not anything else.

    Device sided Changelog:-

    • Changes to frequency tables.
    • Fixed DT2W on AOD.
    • Updated brightness overlays.
    • Updated vendor to LA.UM.9.11.r1-03200-NICOBAR.0.

    Now for this Beta update, you have to be on Stock 11/updated to stock 11.
    No support for stock 10 firmware from my side starting from this build.
    Also please don't try to install any kind of custom recovery. Also that, please don't try installing Old Alpha release after installing beta because that was based up on Stock 10 firmware.

    If you want magisk, please patch the boot image (inside pa fastboot zip).

    You can dirty flash, but if you face bugs, please clean flash and format data.

    All of my work is uploaded and open in github.com/AOSPA and github.com/ThankYouMario. Feel Free to use it the way you can.
    You can also track it in our Gerrit.

    Hope you like it. Cheers.

    WARNING :- Anyone installing this rom coming from Stock 11 update, please don't. Stock Android 11 needs firmware update from my side which will be done in Beta for which you have to install Stock Android 11 from Mi Flash or fastboot and then switch to the upcoming beta build. I'll provide a zip that can be flashed from fastboot itself (i.e, fastboot update pa-xx.zip).

    Also, FYI :- Once you've installed Stock 11 in your phone, please don't try to downgrade it to Android 10 stock. It will brick your phone. Be Safe, be informative.

    Thanks :)
    Can you please tell me the steps to install this rom from stock 11.
    Install necessary device drivers and platform tools from Android SDK.
    Download the rom file (link in OP), which is in zip format. Put the rom file to the platform tools folder.
    Take any necessary backups from your device.
    Enablele USB debugging in Developer options in your phone.

    Reboot to fastboot mode by pressing volume down while rebooting the phone.
    Connect your phone with computer using a USB cable.
    Make sure the computer detects your device by opening a command prompt inside the platform tools folder and type 'fastboot devices' without quotations and press enter. Make sure your device shows up as random number.
    Afterwards, type 'fastboot flashing unlock' without quotations and press enter. Your phone should reboots and erase the data. You have now unlocked the bootloader.

    After briefly set-up the phone, enable USB debugging in Developer options again.
    Reboot to fastboot by pressing volume down button while rebooting.
    Make sure the computer detects your device by opening a command prompt inside the platform tools folder and type 'fastboot devices' without quotations and press enter. Make sure your device shows up as random number.
    Now type 'fastboot update ' without quotations, then drag the rom file from the platform tools folder to the command prompt. The directory of the rom file should be seen after the word 'update ' without quotations. After that, press enter and the phone should start the rom flashing process.

    Keep an eye on the command prompt. When you see it's now flashing/writing the vendor partition, prepare for pressing volume up button on your phone. Once it finishes, the phone restarts and quickly press and hold down the Volume up button until you are in Android recovery mode.

    From there, navigate to 'wipe data/factory reset' using the Volume keys. Press power key to select the option. Select yes using volume and power key afterwards. After it's done, select reboot from the menu using volume keys and press power key once you selected it.

    Sorry to ask, but can i know when is the next update coming, I'm just concerned about the yono app and you said yono will work in the next update
    ugh i am trying my best here to fix things. Might be soon! We are preparing for release 1.
