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.
5g doesn't work on this rom this I switched different rom .
Ps I think it is all 5 g not only T-Mobile.
Data transfer did work.

Been running this since yesterday afternoon, no 5G on Three (UK), LTE performance is fine though. Fingerprint reading when the screen is off can be a little iffy and I've had a couple apps fail to enable biometric login. Pros outweigh the cons though, performance is great and no other issues.

Just update the drivers from device manager, select mtp instead of nexus usd interface , the phone will be detected in the pc

I keep getting the following error, which I find I end up having to completely reinstall stock. I have attempted off different ROMs initially, but my latest attempts have been with a fresh install of OOS, and unlocking the bootloader.

As far as I know, I have the latest SDK tools. I have a Global OnePlus 8 pro

I've tried a variety of different attempts and I always get stuck at the same spot. Any help would be massively appreciated :)

How to get Google Pay working on this ROM?

SafetyNet is passing in Magisk, MagiskHide is enabled and the package name is changed but still not working.

EDIT: Got it working by following this guide .
This was very useful. I wasn't even rooted but my banking app detected that I unlocked the bootloader. Rooting and applying MagiskHide was the was to fix this. Thanks for sharing!

Is anyone's screen randomly going black and unresponsive? I had to hard restart my phone twice today. It's not a major deal, just wondering if this is happening to anyone else.

Safenet pass but bank app I use detect rooted and not allow to use. Reverted to stock :(
Some apps still detect a hidden Magisk. I solved this using Magisk Canary (23015), Zygisk and DenyList enabled, Universal SafetyNet Fix module, LSPosed module and hidden the repackaged Magisk (MagicalUnicorn, lol) using the Hide My Applist module for LSPosed.

What @Timmmmaaahh! did was what I did, and it fixed the issue.
If you want a precise guide on how to do it, it's linked in this post:

This ROM is incredibly amazing, run better than many others stable!!
The guide for Magisk is good too, bank's app work well.
If you want a better camera, download any GCAMs

    I like this rom so far, 3 main issues.

    - Finger print scanner is not very good, half the time doesn't read my finger and sometimes doesn't even try with screen off.

    - Screen is sideways when the phone wakes on occasion, it goes back to normal pretty quick

    - Developer options just crashes in the "home settings" screen

    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.

    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.
