We are very excited to announce the alpha of Paranoid Android Sapphire, based on Android
On the third 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.
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.
