kept getting this error:
extracting product.img (1591MB)
unable to truncate file to 1669050804: File too large
fastboot: error:
failed to extract 'product.img': I/O error

Phone was on OxygenOS 11 official build
honestly, I went way too far just to be able to use this rom. I was on AICP before I saw this rom, so to use this I needed to downgrade, since 1# mentioned this requires OOS11 as a base to flash this. Downgrading caused a ton of issues and eventually I was stuck in a bootloader loop. I resorted to MSM which literally put my op8 to the state in which I got it in - fine, I was the one who decided to play with fire, personal stuff has been backed up, what else other than time do I have to lose, I take full responsibility for this. So, back to OOS10, updated OTA to OOS11, ok finally checked the box to flash this, then, this error happened

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    You can always get our Alpha builds from our Telegram Group or directly download them from here:
    OP8 Pro:
    (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!

    [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-*"
    [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.

    OP8 Pro:

    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.
