Just replace text inside the file "android-info.txt" from "board:kona" >>>> to "board=instantnoodlep" and it's all fine
Or install it from bootloader instead of fastbootd

Hi all. I have been out of roms world for some time. This room is using the oneplus camera app/drivers? Pictures and video quality are the same than stocks roms?

Thank you for the effort!

Its for 8 (non pro) yes. I don't know why you get that error, try to refresh the link.
If you still get it, let me know, then i re-upload it to mega instead.
Link works fine, what i mean is, i couldn't flash this rom.
I'm on oos11 latest update. When ever I tried to flash this rom with fastboot command " fastboot update (rom).zip it says "file can't be loaded, not enough space". Other fastboot commands works fine. I just can't install this rom

Didnt try this myself yet, will tonight when i get home.
You might try to format data first, in recovery and see if that helps.

Or maybe update adb/drivers through android sdk manager.

I just installed the rom, it works great, I only have a problem when transferring data from my computer, but that might be the cable that I am using. Sadly for me, I am on T-Mobile US and not having 5G is killing me, the LTE speed is too slow, even compared to using LTE in OOS (4-5Mpbs vs 35-42Mbps). I will keep the rom installed for a few days and try all the features. Thanks for this awesome rom.

    Alright guys, alpha 2 is out and ready to download!
    Please make sure to wipe userdata if you are coming from ALPHA 1!

    I would also like to welcome OP8T to the party.
    Everything besides ultrawide camera seems to be in line with OP8/OP8Pro, feel free to let me know if I missed something.

    Full changelog will follow tomorrow:
    * 5G is fixed now
    * WFD is fixed now

    Download link is still the same AFH folder. Mirrors on Google Drive can be found below.

    Do they have an official website or anything?
    Yes but it's not up to date, XDA is the official plateform they upload to, and they have a telegram chanel for the news.

    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, 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
    [*] Ultrawide Camera (OP8T)

    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.

    Requirements
    Make sure you are coming from any Android 11 based OxygenOS build, stable is recommended.


    Downloads
    You can always get our Alpha builds from ourTelegram Group or directly download them from here:
    OnePlus 8/T/Pro Downloads
    (Note, OP8/T & Pro builds are no longer unified)

    Note: Custom kernels are not supported unless the kernel says it supports PA and GMS is included!


    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 aospa-*-image.zip"
    [4] Reboot into recovery after it is done flashing & wipe userdata.

    Starting with Alpha 1, you must clean flash due to recent commits related to userdata.

    If you already flashed Alpha 1 and want to update, 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.

    FAQ

    Is feature X working in this rom?
    - If its not mentioned under issues its most likely working.

    Does safetynet work on this rom?
    - Yes, safetynet works out of the box and doesnt require any additional modules or hacks.

    My wireless display doest work.
    - WFD is currently completly removed in my builds because it crashes anyway with the old blobs.

    I notice some screen flicker on dark backgrounds.
    - That's normal, for some reason 60 and 90/120Hz dont have the same colors and you can see it change when smooth display is enabled and it switches between normal and high refresh rate.

    My phone goes randomly into crashdump mode.
    - Simply disable 5G in settings, for some reason there are carriers that dont properly work right now.
