Paranoid Android Sapphire Alpha 2 - Mi 8

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.

Anyone tried it out? Please post your review. 😁
Installed Yesterday on MI 8 64 GB CN version. All work fine and much more faster than official ROM. Noticed at this time only one bug: Google Chrome app Freezes after near 1 minute of working. Tried another browsers working on chromium engine(Yandex), and had same issue. Now I'm using Opera and everything is fine. Dev, please fix it. Can provide access to device if necessary.

If WFD is still in /vendor/etc/vintf/manifest.xml but not working then the drm service will probably be crashing after some time. I'm not saying this is the problem but something I had while testing at some point.

    How should I proceed in my current situation? Is it easy to install?
    I did factory reset in latest official TWRP, then flashed firmware, then aospa zip and then format data by typing yes and reboot. Format data will wipe everything on your device. This is how I flashed it.

    Were you also with yours on xiaomi.eu?
    No, on crDroid.

    Hasn't it and won't it be implemented? Or is it not there because it is still in alpha version?
    Dev knows the answer on this question.
