We are very excited to announce the beta of Paranoid Android Sapphire, based on Android 12L.

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 from the PlayStore.

Our builds are based on the Code Linaro 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.

Preferably dumped via payload dumper, though I may be able to sneak a recovery link somewhere in as well

E: recovery link until it's maybe added to the google drive

Recovery doesn't work for me, it says "Error: Update package is older than the current build, expected a build newer than timestamp 1640132987 but package has timestamp 1640052221 and downgrade not allowed"
So I extracted the recovery from the rom itself via payload dumper and flashing works now but booting up my wifi and mobile data is not working and the settings app keeps crashing and freezing. Am I stupid or am I just missing something important?

Update: I tried googling the issue and found a post on the oneplus forums from 2016 and Paranoid Android 6 where one user suggests switching the language to english since that is apparently a known bug, so I did just that and it actually fixed the wifi and mobile data lol

There are a lot of recoveries out there, and the directions don't seem to suggest which one we should use. Should we be using the latest twrp, or the lineage recovery, or the stock recovery?

I had to pull the recovery from the file in order to be able to flash it and get it to work. I uploaded it if you don't want to use payload dump, can find it here

Is there a way to bypass the signature verification with this recovery? I am getting the error 21, and there doesn't seem to be a override option like all the other recoveries I have used. It makes installing gapps or Magisk difficult.

I've added one more known issue regarding the "prevent accidental wakeup" feature as it currently causes a wakelock and quite a lot of battery drain. Known about it but forgot

Thank you for this awesome ROM !

I have few questions :
  1. Is there a way to setup face recognition like in OOS ?
  2. The NFC shortcut in the notification bar doesn't exist anymore ? Do we always have to go to settings to enable / disable it ?
  3. Camera quality looks very bad. There's a lot of noise. Is this related to the ROM or the camera app ?

    First official beta is out.

    Since they're made by a build server that isn't mine from now on, a clean flash is required due to a key mismatch. Download links are updated, I apologize for their downtime, but this shouldn't happen again now.

    Device change log:
    - Vulkan HW UI renderer
    - F2FS compression has been optionally enabled, but will only be enabled on a clean flash (F2FS limitation). Dirty flashing is fine but won't enable compression.
    - Subtle vibration on notification pulldown

    For people that don't want to, or can't clean flash, I will be providing seperate builds in my Telegram group, but they may be more bleeding edge as I'm trying things.
    3
    New update, trees have been pretty much completely rebased by Omkar but unfortunately will also require a clean flash for reasons that I don't know

    Short changelog:
    - Kernel (possibly temporarily) switched
    - Vendor has been updated from latest CAF S and OOS R
    - WFD has been **fixed**

    It's recommended to dump the recovery.img from the payload to flash this.
    3
    New update out with a decent amount of updated features, and a few bug fixes, mostly related to FOD

    device changelog:
    - fod should be completely fine now
    - rom and kernel are now compiled with sdclang instead of aosp clang
    - flashing custom kernels should work now (though still unsupported)
    - better auto brightness behavior
    3
    Use the phone for a couple of days readjusting brightens manual every time that acts crazy. Be patient. Then leave it to charge overnight, in a flat surface, in do not disturb mode, no data, wi-fi, bluebottle. This will activate android background optimization, it will evaluate all the data that collected during the first couple days and the things will be much better the next day.
    Shall i give it 10 euro also to go and have lunch by itself? After flashing custom roms for more than a decade do you consider this a serious answer? It either works properly or it doesnt.
