[Unofficial] Paranoid Android Ruby Dev 1 - Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro | Explorer Edition

Do you recommend it for daily use instead of the Miui 12.5?
Will there be future updates?

EDIT: @rtx4d I test this ROM (daily basis) and I have this bug (on Mi8 Pro):
1) Multitasking sometimes gives problems, it does not allow an exit / selection inside. The only solution is to push the app up hard (then go to the Home) and reopen it.
2) Data connection management is problematic. I have to manually set the PLMN in advanced settings - network. At each reboot it is deleted and I find myself having to re-enter it.
3) Not all menus are translated into my language
4) fingerprint and face unlock work, but fingerprint unlock under the screen creates a kind of screen flash, instead of increasing brightness in the fingerprint area only
Hi there! Im also install this rom on my 8 pro, but i couldn't enable the face unlock, how did you do that? That would be very helpful i you could tell me how to fix it, cause i cannot find where to enable it anywhere in the settings. :(

    We are very excited to announce the release of Paranoid Android Ruby, based on Android 11.

    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.


    As we are growing on our list of supported devices in each release, we require of a stronger build environment so we can speed up the compilation process for releases. Based on the actual Quartz 4 list, we support over 30 devices, which takes between 2 and 3 days for all the builds to be completed without counting possible compilation issues or rebuild needs, based on our current specs.

    We kindly ask all of you that are in position to donate anything, to help and support us so we can provide better and faster build releases, as well as increase the download speed of our servers, all looking for your enjoyment.

    Initial Dev Release

    Device-specific issues
    For some Mi 8 EE devices FOD does not work, thanks Xiaomi.

    Note: Custom kernels are NOT supported!


    My preferred logging format is:
    adb logcat -b all -d *:E > logcat-err.log
    adb logcat -b all -d > logcat.log
    adb shell dmesg > dmesg.log

    Then you can upload them to https://del.dog and send me the link for each one.

    Thanks a lot for this build, this build seems problem in Face Unlock system, how to fix it? thank you :)
    try to flash this patch by your recovery
    did this rom supports on screen fingerprint?
    my device is ursa( MI 8 EE)
    i flashed this but dosent have the fingerprint option
    Please attach logs to fix this problem, I don't have enough testers for mi8 ee
    Tried this ROM for for several days on a daily basis.
    First impression: it definitely works. However, I'm among those unluckys with not working FOD. No fix for this problem right now.
    Deleting /vendor/etc/init/[email protected]_sdm845.rc partially fixed system response times, as it doesn't work anyway.
    Battery life quite dissapointing compared to miui, hopefully it would get better soon.
    NFC, Camera, Bluetooth works.
