Do not flash the other one, that is an older build wit

Don't sideload the latest one. I didn't put out an OTA for it, made a fastboot zip since that's what I did for 8T since it was 8T's first release. You definitely don't want to flash the OTA that was put out on the 21st, had some issues not present in the 23rd build like audio in phone calls not working.
What's the flashing procedure then for Alpha 2? The method in OP doesn't work.
Code:
archive does not contain 'android-info.txt'
error: update package 'pa.zip' has no android-info.txt

I also don't see the build on 23rd listed.

So, im trying to install this.

First i try to install the build with the -image at the end. When i do that, it goes well and it reboots in recovery. But the screen goes mental, thousands of different colours. Like looking at a broken TV screen.

It works, because i can see movement on the screen but not how its supposed to work i guess. I cannot boot into PA either..

First edit: i managed to get the first version to work. Used another recovery and that works. Now trying to sideload the second version.

Second edit: installing beta2 via sideload stops after 47%. Dont know why..

Third edit: problem was my recovery. I got another recovery from a xda user that works like a charm. Am on the latest PA now. Looks really good.

Only question: is it possible to remove the android bar at the bottom?

Wireless charging works. I get more juice but nowhere is shown that it's chsrgings.

    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.

    You can donate here

    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 (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.

    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
