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.

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.

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 (Note, OP8 & Pro builds are no longer unified)

Instructions
  1. Download the latest fastboot zip we released (hint: it has an -image appended to zip name)
  2. Reboot to bootloader.
  3. Flash the fastboot zip with "fastboot update pa-*-signed-image.zip"
  4. Reboot into recovery after it is done flashing & wipe userdata.
Starting with Beta 4, 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.

Brilliant that a new release is up.

Might want to clarify the installation instructions with a guide or you'll be asked 100 times. Berry to keep the thread for development rather than installation right?

Thanks for your hard work on the ROM, definitely a little more needed for the guide though ;)

Fyi I know how to flash it but a lot of others won't

so i tried a million times to get magisk manager to patch the Pixel Experience 11 Beta boot image. i went into settings and changed update channel in magisk manager settings to beta. once i changed to beta, i went back and patched the stock pe 11 boot image and the magisk_patched image rooted my device now. i can always tell because most boot img are about 98MB in size. using titanium as we speak. this is what i did to get root on pixel experience 11 beta. see if this works for PA 11.

    In PA-7 the fod seems to be greatly improved, pretty much OOS like.
    The only 2 issues I encountered:
    - The haptics aren't OOS like.
    - On the AOD, the charging info is displayed incorrectly. (I was using the warp charger included with the OP8 Pro)

    Currently running Lineage OS 18.1 on both slots, can I safely flash and boot into this ROM?
    I'd say yes. But if your on verizon networks don't waste your time. It doesn't get data/internet

    flashed beta 1 been running it for a while here's what I have found
    1) mtp does indeed make the phone go to crashdump
    2) color profiles don't work
    3) no way to change the refresh rate
    4) AOD makes the screen not turn back on have to restart the device to turn it on

    AOD is fixed, MTP is fixed (maybeTM, only had about 2 people test), will be in Beta 2
