    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.


    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

    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!


    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 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.

    OP8 series will be supported and maintained
    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.

    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.
    Tried the latest build on my KB2000. WiFi ist working great and so far nothing crashed. FOD ist working great too, enrollment crashed during setup but worked fine afterwards.
    Seems stable enough to be daily driver, will try and use it for the next days.
    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.
