We are very excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Quartz, based on Android 10.

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.

Hey, not unofficial but doesn't matter since I will keep it up to date so do not worry :)

It tracks Pixel Experience repo gapps however with Quartz 3 update I will release a vanilla version

No bugs so far ;)

Hi, this is my first time flashing custom rom on my Mi 9 SE, though i had experience from my previous devices.
Just asking to be sure, i would need to have TWRP flashed first right? And is there any other necessary tools that i need to flash, like firmware or anything?
And what do you mean by having firmware 11.0.2.0?

EDIT: I understand on the firmware question, i will have to flash 11.0.2.0 firmware, got it. But what is the flashing order?

Hi all,

Thanks for the work!

Somehow due to my inexperience I managed to softbrick my device (stuck at fastboot, fixable by reflashing miui image). So I have a couple of questions:

1. I am going from firmware 11.0.2.0 Europe (QFBEUXM). Does this require to start from another version of the firmware (Global for example)
2. The kernel needs to be flashed separately? Or is it included in the flash package.

Thanks.

Yes, you need to have custom TWRP (SHRP reocommended) wipe dalvik/cache/data/vendor/system, flash 11.0.2 and then flash rom and magisk

No it doesnt matter. Just flash twrp.img from adb and then required wipes, flash 11.0.2 + rom + magisk

kernel is already included.

Tried once more and didn't work (still stuck at fastboot). However, reading somewhere else I found out that when you come from a MIUI Rom (like stock) to AOSP you might need to flash also vbmeta. Tried that and it worked correctly.

So far no problems, great performance.

Ahhh! Though you did all the previous steps, yeah you have to make a few things coming from MIUI obviously! :D

Nice ROM, smooth. The only minor "fault" I find is that fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone isn't great. I usually have to put in the PIN code to unlock. I had this issue on Pixel Experience too. But otherwise all's good.

Peace

Could you write down the order of flashing that you used.

Thanks.

This worked for me - factory reset, format data, reboot recovery, flash firmware then flash ROM (as per first post!)

Peace

My flashing order when coming from stock MIUI 11.

1. Of course first unlock bootloader.
2. Flash TWRP from @redispade
3. Format Data from TWRP
4. Reboot to TWRP
5. Wipe dalvik/cache/data/vendor/system
6. Copy the ROM and firmware zip files to internal storage.
7. Flash the firmware zip
8. Flash the ROM zip
9. Reboot (it won't reboot to ROM, it will be stuck at flashboot)
10. Connect to the PC and from cmd flash vbmeta (fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img)
11. From cmd type the command "fastboot reboot" and finger's crossed, now you should see the boot screen.

As far as I remember this is what I did. I tried to recall it as much as I could however it was 4 in the morning.

    The channel from wich you would normally get updates / the download link doesn't exist any more / has changed the name, but you didn't update the link :/

    The telegram channel is no longer accessible, the download link no longer exists and this project is dead?

    I'm using 11.0.2 FW the one that is attached in this post. However, today i haven't had any restarts yet...:fingers-crossed:

    Looking forward to the new update...:D:D

    Yeah, those blobs are acting weirdly, as I sad almost ALL grus roms are getting random reboots.

    AOSPA devs are almost on RC phase. That means that "Release Candidate" status is closer.
