Paranoid Android Sapphire Alpha 1 - Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro | Explorer Edition

We are very excited to announce the alpha of Paranoid Android Sapphire, based on Android 12.

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 from the PlayStore.

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.

thanks for the work,
found a serious issue:
if switched to button navigator, the whole system will crash and require factory reset to re-enter the system

Thank you for the work done!

I found that when installing navigation using three buttons, the phone goes out (reboot on the screensaver).

Also, i cannot install anything via twrp (for example magisk) after successfully install this rom because the twrp didnt ask for password I've set to decrypting storage, can anyone help me to fix this issue?

You can use the adb command in TWRP, adb pull xxxx.zip /data, and then install it in TWRP. You need some Linux commands
