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.

Device-specific issues

- Double tap to wake
- Buggy FOD
- Safetynet

Requirements

Make sure you are running the stable Latest Xiaomi EEA (12.0.3) or China stable rom before flashing the ROM.

If this the first time you are installing a custom ROM, make sure to flash vbmeta images using the following command:
Code:
fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img

If somebody have problem about difference of CAF Code Aurora Forum vs AOSP vs LineageOS this link is handy ;)
https://customroms.net/faq/caf-vs-aosp-los-roms/
"CAF ROMs, if available, are therefore generally considered to be more optimized for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs than LOS and AOSP ROMs. The difference is mainly in the base, so the only thing that might get better on CAF ROMs is the optimization (in performance, RAM management, battery, etc.,). Suppose there are two variants of the same ROM (like Pixel Experience), one of which is based on AOSP and the other on CAF. In this case, there should only be differences in optimization and not features, as it is only the base that’s different unless the developers intentionally implement extra features into the CAF ROM."

Don't know. Right now i'm unbricking my device and will then try it without the vbmeta files once again.
Now it works. Didn't install vbmeta
