It's a good ROM for testing. Wouldn't recommend for daily use. Gaming is terrible on it. I think it has to do with the resolution scale. Overall, great work.

And it works much better than OxygenOS 12 (EU) C.38 and above.
I was about to ask what type of gaming you're referring to. I don't play games that are resource heavy. Still wondering about customization options / is it more vanilla and focused on stability / etc. Don't really want to go through the hassle of switching from my current rom, which honestly is working fine.

I only play games like doodle Jump on my mobile. That also runs very well. I can do without functions like AI upscaling. That's why the OS is currently a good alternative to OxygenOS 12, which I don't like at all.

Exactly which recovery are you using with this? I tried lineage 18 recoveries and nothing works. I always get an error when try to flash. "Signature verification failed"
I can flash other roms such as stag and xtreme. But just can't get this on to go.
Thanks

Your getting the error because you need to take at least one Ota to ensure oos is on both slots. Fastboot update rom utilizes both slots to install. Take an Ota and repeat. It will work.

I encountered Bluetooth audio glitches with my earbuds and inconsistent metadata when playing music through my car's infotainment, song details don't change on skip action leaving the system playing a different song than the one displayed. After a bunch of skips the song details are updated

I came to the conclusion that the wallpaper app is off... It doesn't always set the appropriate accent color from the wallpaper you choose, sometimes it's grey with green wallpaper and pink-ish with the majority of different colourful wallies I applied. I end up sticking to the green flowers background from new pixels since it's the only one that gets a matching accent

    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
    [*] Mobile network will initialize a bit slowly after boot
    [*] Wi-Fi may not work on a few reboots. You may have to reboot multiple times for Wi-Fi to work
    [*] Pocket-detection is less than ideal, it may result in accidental wake-ups or ignored gestures
    [*] Bootanimation will pause for a split second. This is a known issue from the kernel

    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:

    We’re excited to announce the first Beta build of Paranoid Android Sapphire.

    The platform had more than PA-specific 700 commits from the last Alpha release, along with a huge list of device-specific improvements.

    Here are some device-specific highlights:

    - Prebuilt blobs are revamped to fix various issues (audio, video, NFC, etc)
    - Sleep mode is changed to fix excessive idle battery drain
    - VRR implementation is now working, which will improve battery life a lot
    - Corner masks are now done properly
    - Fingerprint improvements
    - Kernel switched to a customized version of arter97 kernel

    Here are platform-wise highlights:

    - Latest CAF tag merged
    - kdrag0n’s Repainter service integrated
    - Optimized bionic, memory routines (ported by xboxfanj)
    - Latest f2fs-tools
    - Few optimizations merged from kdrag0n’s ProtonAOSP
    - Burn-in protection feature added

    There’s a lot more stuff going under the hood, especially the big kernel switch. All in all, this build will be drastically different from previous builds.

    With that said, there are some known issues:

    - Mobile network will initialize a bit slowly after boot
    - Wi-Fi may not work on a few reboots. You may have to reboot multiple times for Wi-Fi to work
    - Pocket-detection is less than ideal, it may result in accidental wake-ups or ignored gestures
    - Bootanimation will pause for a split second. This is a known issue from the kernel

    Enjoy!

    A clean flash is highly recommended.

    [Thread Cleaned] I'm not sure whether it's related to XDA feeling rather blue today (what's even up with that?) but let's try not engaging in conflict. When someone replies in a seemingly dismissive manner, please always consider the possibility they have kind intentions. Let's not forget that text is easily misinterpreted and it's hard to express our corresponding emotions this way. Also note that everyone is always welcome to click that 'Report' button on a post that offends you, if only it was to rid yourself of your frustrations in that moment. Your request may or may not be addressed but we'll be happy to receive and process them anyway! Like so you always have an outlet, just please don't work out your frustrations on each other. We have [insert preferred social media platform] for that? And my PM box, there's that too (please go easy on me ^_^).

    Thank you for your time and have an amazing and safe day y'all!
