guys all errors you get are from non clean flash, probably you come from rooted rom (oos or custom), or you did something wrong while entering fastbootd. I get these errors in the beggining while i figured out this stuff about fastbootd. just to be sure everything is ok before flashing the rom, flash fastboot roms provided in the threads and after that do the procedure to flash custom rom. I never had any errors flashing this way. now just to be sure after flashing fastboot rom that bluetooth is working, if not you will have to flash ota from the phone. now you are ready to go. don`t know about this bluetooth thing but it`s totally random. have fun :)


now i am coming from alpha build 5 oos and rooted.and i know what im doing .running before omni .

tomorow i try it again to see.

Just wipe everything before you start. Then reboot into fastboot and enter command fastboot reboot fastboot. It restart to recovery, but fastboot commands still works. Then enter the commands from the instructions

I think that just the core of gapps would be perfect, a small guide on how to delete it completely would be enough, most users will use gapps, the ones who don't can work it out of the rom themselves. I don't think it's that big of a deal

Just installed the rom and its nice! But is it debloated? Or Is it just the same as original? What else is different? Can't find much difference actually?

That's right I also got some errors when installing. I think it
was system and one more..
True. Google added so many things in Android now that doesn't make much of a difference anymore. So all custom and all stock Android 10 are very close to each other. (Open source and closed source)
i had also a fault while flashing the rom

You got these errors because:

1. Maybe bad download. Re-download.
2. You forgot the first time to reboot to fastboot so you were in bootloader mode which only flashes A partitions.
3. When you soft brick and do the key combo to enter fastboot , it's not fastboot. It's recognised as recovery mode. You need to adb reboot fastboot or navigate to reboot to bootloader and from there fastboot reboot fastboot.

It was one of these three cases. Since it's my first A/B device I had those too and they are fresh so I remember them.

its the 3 option i think or something. the second time a flashed it was on partition b. what i do is in oos i do adb devices, adb reboot fastboot then i come in fastbootd. then again fastboot devices to see if he see my phone. then flash the imgs. what not work here is if i am in old fastboot and i do then fastboot reboot fastboot nothing happens.

Some info from OMNIROM thread. All credit to @darkobas

android 10 shipped devices have fastboot like we know it and its pretty much useless. and they have the new fastbootd (google it).
Make sure u download the latest fastboot from google.

1st. get into fastbootd:
option a) from old fastboot, type: fastboot reboot fastboot (funny eh ?) another google miracle to not name it fastbootd.
option b) if you have a running os with adb: adb reboot fastboot

this will bring you to OOS chinese recovery look a like, but its fastboot. to test that u r in the right place try a fastboot command. fastboot getvar all for example.

2nd. flash ROM

give it up for the moment


So a couple weeks ago my 5g McLaren i thought was done for. The biggest deal was a bunch of --set
And similar commands not working. What i found out though was

So every time i plug in phone to pc it says something about what do you want to do with f drive oneplus ....
Well it has drivers run the .exe
Yes im sure use admin permissions.

Nothing ever happened.
Way later on i opened the drive up instead and ran the auto install or whatever and it put the drivers on. Its Qualcomm usb drivers. Everything i kept seeing here was all "need new adb platform tools and new fastboot"

Nope. Never was the case. Ever. Whoever had that flash package i cant thank enough for helping unbrick. But if i didnt figure out i needed that id be done for.

I am ever so grateful for the hard work put into this ROM for our Oneplus 7T Pro. I was able to successfully install it today, was working fine at first but now I can't get into my phone using the fingerprint says finger moved to fast also can't use any of my apps that require root like Titanium Backup and cant install Viper4android I followed the usual steps for Majisjk but SafetyNet not functioning. I'm going to have to uninstall and wait for the official build. Most of the apps that I use require root I was really excited but then disappointed. Anyhow thanks for the ROM looking forward to the official build. Peace

    Hi, it was my personal idea , i took the initiative to create an XDA thread so that you all get a taste of what's coming soon. I didn't want to keep this any more to myself. So this thread is sure to be updated soon. You must have thought that your device doesn't have any support right ? Wrong !

    We’re really excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Quartz Alpha, 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. For those who are unfamiliar, 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 enhances the overall user experience. This time around he have his wallpaper app Abstruct, were you will be able to find all of the Paranoid Android wallpapers alongside a huge amount of amazing wallpapers.

    The alpha builds include adjustments and improvements on top of the stock Android CAF base. The Paranoid Android team and contributors are focusing on squashing existing bugs, and implementing and improving features.

    Device-specific issues
    SafetyNet fails

    Note: Custom kernels are explicitly unsupported and will cause issues unless they state that they are AOSPA compatible or AOSPA based!

    Note: If you used your root access to mess with your device do not ask for help in this thread or send any kind of log to ask for anything. Instead, create a thread in Help section of OnePlus 7T Pro

    It depends. Huawei now will run without GAPPS. There are always alternatives.
    Aaaand there are people who prefer open source F-Droid instead of GAPPS.
    Anyway. i'm waiting to hear from you people. I can make a mini guide how to get rid of GAPPS and turn to F-Droid. It will save my PC from stressing for 3 more hours to build :D

    Attention. I'm uploading now a build with working GAPPS.
    And from now on i will upload only OTAs but you will have to flash them manually.
    I will upload a full firmware when there is an update there, otherwise there is no reason to flash all the partitions.
    Hold on few minutes and the build will be there.
    Enjoy.

    EDIT:
    It's up but i'm unsure if this time again the initial setup wizard is fine as i didn't format my phone, i need it.
    Do not forget to fastboot -w to format it before you flash anything when coming from another rom.

    All good. I built my own GoogleSetupWizard.apk. I'm uploading now a new build.
    Sorry for that earlier. This time i tested it , i formatted my phone just now and completed the setup successfully.
