Ported by hnkotnis​

Many bugs are fixed now, with base changed to @bieltv.3 's CM9 beta 4 as base.

Today I completed exact 1 year after joining XDA Developers. So I am launching RC2 version of PA,
which was a bit delayed because couldn't get it properly boot. Yesterday I got it to boot and today I am uploading here.

void main()
printf("If you have come here, your warranty is already void.");
printf("/nYou can't blame me for that. Root Access is responsible for that");
printf("/n[COLOR="Red"][B][U]For using this ROM you need to agree following things");[/U][/B][/COLOR]
/* */
/*I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,*/
/* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please*/
/* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM*/
/* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if*/
/* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.*/
/* */

This is based on BroadcomCM CM9 Beta2 Beta 4.
I know there is another Paranoid Android ROM. But it is buggy. In this version lot of bugs are fixed.

Credits are given in the end and I think I have got all people who deserve it.
If you think I have missed something, send me a message.

ROM:- ParanoidAndroid_V1.5_RC2_by_hnkotnis_94.17 MB PA V1.5 RC2
Kernel:- CM Specific Kernel by BroadcomCM
EXT4 Convertor:- Multi-Formatter by rio

Older Version:-

ROM:- Paranoid Android V1.5 PA V1.5 RC1
Use same Kernel and EXT4 Convertor in above download.

Installation Instructions:-
0. YOU NEED ROOT!!! Making Nandroid backup from CWM is recommended before install.

*** Use stock ROM before flashing for best results. ***

1. First go to CWM Recovery. Flash Multi Formatter. Proceed and select EXT4.
2. When you come to recovery, there will be some mounting errors. IGNORE THEM
3. Flash the Kernel. Then go to advanced ====> Reboot Recovery.
4. Now you will be in Blue BroadcomCM CWM Recovery.
5. Go to Mounts and Storage. Mount System. UNMOUNT AND MOUNT TWICE.
***You need to unmount and mount twice, because CWM's mount option shows wrong first time***
6. Flash the ROM zip.
7. Wipe data and cache.
8. Reboot and Enjoy!!!

You can also use BroadcomCM's CM9. (In case of CM9, skip to step 4, just format system, data, cache and install ROM or do a dirty flash on existing ROM).

Can I make calls?
Or "audio" means only the back speaker?
Front speaker is working?

Sent from my SM-T210R using xda app-developers app
its based on bieltv.3 cm9 so will have all the bugs of that

you can make calls but you wont be able to hear the person talking due to no audio and they wont be able to hear you as the mic wont work

All above mentioned
Resizing issues in settings, lock screen.
Didn't test more.

Can't read text in settings (as mentioned)

Reverted back to previous ROM.

Of course this contains bugs, because it is in Beta phase.
I don't have force close when I long click statusbar items (like Wi-Fi, BT Toggles).
