maybe try updating to latest oos 11 and then using this method. rather than just using it out of the msm rom
Easier said - than done when on a carrier variant which is locked down to whenever they decide to release the next OTA.

NB: Their latest OTA is OOS 11.O.08_GLO_0080.

Camera app not working in oneplus 9r. the only thing missing is oos cam..i am sure many people will go for this rom as soon as oos cam is available and also the ability to flash this rom while on oos 12 will be great as oneplus has already switched to it and getting the earlier roms might be tough.

I just dirty flashed from Alpha 2 using fastboot. I had to unzip and modify the android-info.txt file. board=Kona to board=oneplus8pro. I recommend doing the un-zip and re-zip using 7z. Native Win10 archiver did not zip it back up correctly and it failed to flash the first time after making the changes.

Hopefully this helps anyone who is dirty flashing from Alpha 2 and is having issues with mismatch in fastboot flash.

Also, so far so good and it feels smoother than Alpha 2. Great job 33bca! Seems like the refresh rate is higher system wide? I had force max refresh on before but it still feels smoother.

Why fastbootd instead of fastboot?

Hi, just wanted to report a bug.
Speaker is cracking when calling on speaker.
I'm on 8t
Also the haptics need improvements.
The rest is good 🙂

Hi guys, I just unlocked for the first time my device to install Paranoid Android, but when I try to use the command "fastboot update" the command line raises an error saying the following:

error: failed to load 'aospa-sapphire-3-oneplus8pro-alpha-20220407-image.zip': Not enough space

how can I fix this?

    Ah. No idea what the problem is then.
    Sounds weird.

    Yes. Safetynet passes without root so banking and Google pay works, and Netflix is available with widevine L1.
    How did you get Widevine L1?
    Any specific step to keep this?


    Edit: Problem solved

    Can anyone help with this issue please. OnePlus 8, came from Oxygen OS 11 NA stable build. 'Fastboot -w' and wiping via recovery doesn't work.View attachment 5637027
    As a OnePlus 8 T-Mobile user myself, the best way to install this ROM is to install an Android 12 Custom ROM first, then after installing the A12 ROM reboot to fastboot then fastboot update aospa.zip then you won't have any errors.

    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 our Telegram Group or directly download them from here:
    OP8: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1N7Mn1-hei22fPWLuoPE8Obkq7mZ2WT39?usp=sharing
    OP8 Pro: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Xx8tl3ueWChlUjIIhFTMOotpD8uDfXjM?usp=sharing
    OP8T: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/16PdpI8gN8kE5ZFt3WBt8mQc6_p5B7pSk?usp=sharing
    OP9R: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1tCN77OBbzSbdoF6TX3PySaMSHu-t4V_J?usp=sharing
    (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.

    If you are coming from Alpha 1, you must clean flash due to recent commits related to userdata. If you are coming from Alpha 2 you can dirtyflash it.

    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.

    Alright guys, Sapphire Alpha 3 is out and ready to download!
    But sadly I got some bad news for you all with this release, I won't be able to continue OP8 builds anymore as my OP8 Pro got stolen recently. We will discuss in our team who will take care of the builds from now on.

    OP9R Is now also in a part of the party. Since it's a blindbuild based on our 8T sources I can't guarantee it works as flawless as the other builds. Please let us know if there are any issues.

    Full changelog will follow some times later. Or maybe never, who knows.

    For now you can download the builds from GDrive and Telegram, AFH is still uploading.

    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.
