I have tried to apply sapphire 2 but here is what I am getting. I'm sure I'm missing something simple.

Thanks a lot for the firmware. So far, I have found one bug: The external USB-DAC E1 DA 9038D does not work, it is not detected as a device.

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.

Hi! I just found out about this ROM today as there doesn't seem to be a link to it on the OP9 forums, just the pro. I was wondering, given this new kernal update, has the firmware been updated aswell, as so OOS 12 should be used to update from? Or is OOS 11 still the go-to.

No you can't use A12 framework. Msm to A11 and take one over-the-air. You must have oos on both slots or build won't flash.

So coming from alpha 2, do I still need to flash Oos11 back and start from there? Or can I just wipe in fastboot?

Edit. No need to flash oos11 back

    We’re excited to announce the updated Beta build of Paranoid Android Sapphire, based on Android 12L.

    We're sticking with "Beta 1" naming to match the status of other PA releases, but rest assured, it is a new build.

    The platform had more than PA-specific 500 commits from the last Beta release.

    Device-wise, the new build includes the latest arter97 kernel r20.
    Please refer to its thread for relevant changes.

    The PA device tree also has been modified to support future arter97 kernel builds as well.

    Here are some device-specific changes:

    - Fixed post boot script applying incorrect tuning values
    - Dimensions synced with other custom ROMs

    And here are some platform-wise highlights:

    - New VRR method implemented to drastically improve battery life
    - The memory allocator is now back to jemalloc, which improves performance throughout the system
    - Optimized bionic, memory routines (ported by xboxfanj)
    - zlib-ng from kdrag0n’s ProtonAOSP to improve performance
    - Latest libjpeg-turbo merged to improve imaging performance
    - Latest CAF tag merged

    As always, there’s a lot more stuff going under the hood, especially the new kernel release.

    Enjoy!

    An updated PA build is now live.

    We're sticking with "Beta 1" naming, the build dates will be different.

    This time, FUSE passthrough has been enabled to utilize the kernel's unique android12-5.4 base.
    This will improve storage performance.

    Changes since 20220611:
    - Latest CAF tags merged
    - Enabled FUSE passthrough for better storage performance
    - Radio properties matched with stock configuration
    - Patches added for arter97 kernel r21 beta builds (the PA build itself will be staying on stable r20 release, it'll just be r21-ready)
    - Latest Google Apps and modules merged

    Anyone know why I'm getting this from Energy Ring? I tried changing the name from "OnePlus 9 Pro" to LE2123, still getting the same, is there another definition location for the name?


    View attachment 5641223

    It works fine on other roms, had to end up using the energy bar instead (up top)
    I'm not using this ROM but when I had that error on Nameless I remember I opened up the app and at the bottom of the screen there is a place where you can select your device. I changed it from the codename to the device name and then I was able to turn it on. Maybe try that?

    I don't see any such option anywhere in the app or it's settings

    For clarity this is "Energy Ring Universal Edition"
    This is how it looks on my device.

    Maybe it's because I paid? I don't know but I had to switch from lemonade to OnePlus 9.

    That's bizarre, yeah I paid too

    I don't get any button under my gradient options (kudos on yours by the way, that's a rainbow of colours), can't scroll down any further than that

    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
    [*] 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 Beta builds from our Telegram Group or directly download them from here:

    With that said, there are some known issues:
