We are very excited to announce the alpha 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.

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.

Device-specific issues:
Call related issues on Google Fi
Miracast

There are likely many other issues, these are just the most prominent to me. Don't come into this with the expectation any issue you come across will be fixed in a timely manner.

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported unless the kernel says it supports PA and GMS is included!

Requirements

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

Instructions
  • Download the latest build we released.
  • If you haven't flashed PA before, flash the "-image" build in bootloader with "fastboot update [build].
  • If you have flashed PA before then sideload the OTA in recovery.
  • Reboot into recovery right after that's done flashing, and wipe userdata.
Starting with Beta 3, you must clean flash due to recent commits related to userdata.

If you already flashed Beta 1, then you can just sideload the OTA in recovery if it is avaliable, although there might be only fastboot images up for the latest version so keep that in mind.

Super excited to see this get started for the 8T. ROM OS version says 10 at the bottom of the post though.
Leftover from when XDA DevDB was a thing, Android 10 was the latest version at the time when I created the OP8/Pro thread. Guess I can put whatever I want there now since the rework.

Ah. Good to know.

This is the first time I've flashed a ROM like this. It has several .sig files missing. I'm guessing that's due to not being OnePlus firmware. It fails at the vendor.img though. It returns:

extracting vendor.img (1323 MB) to disk...ziparchive W 12-22 14:58:22 6940 3964 Zip: unable to truncate file to 1387766136: File too large
fastboot: error:
failed to extract 'vendor.img': I/O error

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Had another 8T user try to reproduce, they cannot.

Device-specific issues
FOD has some issues with dimming, gets there eventually but goes full HBM then fades into dim. Also pretty slow on enrolling, but in actual use it's pretty fine.

There are likely many other issues, these are just the most prominent to me. Don't come into this with the expectation any issue you come across will be fixed in a timely manner.

Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported unless the kernel says it supports PA and GMS is included!

Requirements

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

Instructions
  1. Download the latest build we released with "-image" appended near the end.
  2. Flash that in bootloader with "fastboot update [build].zip"
  3. Reboot into recovery right after that's done flashing, and wipe userdata.

FYI, it appears when trying to transfer large files via usb (mine was 2.4 GB) it will put you in Qualcomm Crashdump.

I know the OP says reboot to bootloader and then enter the given command. Wanted to check if we need to be on stock OOS or we can flash this from other custom ROMs. Need clearity as custom ROMs have custom recovery and was wondering if it will work.

Also if we need to be on stock OOS, can we just flash stock recoevey and flash Pandroid.

Also the download link as the updated rom or should we wait for the feds fixed ROM.

TIA.

You can't flash this from a recovery, it's a fastboot zip to be flashed in bootloader.

Thank you for your prompt response. May be I was not clear in asking my doubt. My point here is,
1. Do we need to be on stock rom or can come from custom rom.
2. This phone is been tricky to run around as power users without TWRP. So when you say fastboot/bootloader, do you mean to say "fastbootd" mode or regular "fastboot" mode.

TIA

1.) Doesn't matter, just make sure you are on the latest firmware from stock.
2.) I mean bootloader, the zip will flash boot/dtbo/recovery/vbmeta/vbmeta_system from bootloader then automatically reboot into fastbootd to flash system/system_ext/product/odm/vendor.

Awesome, this clears my uncertain mind. Sometimes my curious mind raise a lot of irrelevant questions which might come up as rude or noobs to most.

Installed the ROM. Did everything as stated. However ran into Qualcomm Crash dump. Tried it multiole times but same results. I had to get into recovery again and formate data to get to boot up again and only to crash again. However, after multiple failed attemptes, I flashed back crDroid and tried booting that ROM, it failed to start. So tried to flash this one last time and it booted. Been in for about 39 mins now and there is no sign of crash dump as yet. Will report back if it happens again with logcat.
