Paranoid Android 2017 - Nougat Resurrection

We’re really excited to announce that we are releasing our Nougat flavour of Paranoid Android. We have a lot in store - with a mix of both features & improvements.

First & foremost, we have moved our code base to be fully CAF based. This brings many improvements to your device. The key improvement here is that Qualcomm hardware is better tuned on the CAF base and with our additional optimisations we can provide a smooth and fluid user experience that will let you enjoy using your device without any lags.

On first launch you’ll notice a clean setup with a beautiful wallpaper from Hampus Olsson who’s teamed up with us again and created several beautiful pieces of artwork. For those of you who don’t know, Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work stands itself and we’re glad to have him onboard. We have also added several new features and made improvements to the UI of the system that we believe would enhance the overall experience.

Pie
We’ve been working hard on redesigning this key feature of our portfolio and we’re really happy with how it has turned out. The whole design has been reworked and it fits in well with the overall feel of Google’s Material Design. This gives you the opportunity to use more gesture based control for navigating, rather than using the standard Navigation Bar at the bottom of your screen. Expect improvements and additions in the future.

Color Engine
We’re proud to announce our newest feature - Color Engine. Color Engine allows you to seamlessly change the colors of your device to be in Light, Dark (Pixel) and Black modes with a variety of accent colors to choose from. This makes changing the theme of your device really quick without having to install any extra packages on your device.

Major features
Reworked Pie
Color engine
Immersive mode
Buttons customization (including navigation bar)
On the spot controls (OTS)


Other features
SafetyNet Compatibility
Battery/Notification LED control
Recent tasks locking
Battery icon customization
Google now page in default launcher
Substratum support (Color engine will be deactivated if you use Substratum)
Quick pulldown
Various performance and battery improvements
Display Burn-in protection (for OLED screens)
More to explore :)

Device specific
Oneplus 3(T) custom camera HAL: Resulting in better picture quality than OEM.
Implemented custom picture background processing leading to very fast shutter speed (OnePlus 3(T) specific)
Offscreen gestures
sRGB support (OnePlus 3(T) specific)
Alert slider customization
aptX and aptXHD support

Device Support
Currently we are only supporting a few select devices.
OnePlus 3/3T, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel and Pixel XL.
We are currently undergoing final testing for the OnePlus One, OnePlus X, Nexus 5, OnePlus 2 and Nextbit Robin which will be released as soon as we feel they are stable enough.
With more devices to be announced soon.

Source
All kernel sources, a major part of device specific support and some features are already online. The features that were kept private initially and the missing device support parts will be uploaded during the next hours and days.

Device Maintainers
We are currently looking to expand our roster of supported devices and to do this we would like to recruit some more developers to our team. If you think you have what it takes and have a device (or two) that you’d like to see supported by us we’d like you to get in touch.

Future
We have built a more functional internal infrastructure and we plan to deliver bug fixes as well as major updates with new features quicker than we did it on our M release. Also the support time for our N release will be longer than previous releases.

Before anyone has the chance to ask, we do not have enough information about the Pixel phones to determine if PA will support them. Once we know more we will make a final decision.

Another one, another one!

The device lineup has been updated to include yet another device - The Nextbit Robin. Huge thanks to Nextbit for hooking us up with devices and believing in the open source project. This release is only for the Robin & the OnePlus 3.

As we continue to iterate and add in features to the ROM, our main focus still is to make full use of our resources and get the most out of each device. This time around we're giving utmost attention to overall performance & experience. Our developers +Alex NDS & +Jake Weinstein spent two good whole months to optimize and test the Robin so as to make it ready for public release. As always, we aim for the best experience possible.

Changelog

- Added switch to last app button action
- Added custom routines to maximize performance on kryo devices
- Improved system wide performance
- Improved battery life
- Stability fixes for Quick Settings
- Various improvements and fixes for the Camera app
- Fixed a few encryption issues
- Other various bug fixes and improvements

OnePlus 3:

- Added DASH charging indicator
- Added full support for VoLTE
- Improved power management during the dexopting
- Improved Camera quality
- Improved GPS
- Improved audio platform and quality
- Improved memory management
- Improved resolution for graphic textures
- Reduced power consumption in specific cases
- Fixed camera flash issues
- Fixed internal issues relating to the display driver
- Fixed a device specific issue with encryption
- Fixed Camera app crash when trying to access settings
- Fixed Wifi Hotspot functionality
- Various other minor improvements

Head over to http://get.aospa.co to get your builds!

Let's talk about update cycles & nougat

Since the 2016 relaunch, we have done a total of only 3 updates. This might seem a bit slow or not up to par to some users but it aligns well with our “release if perfect” vision. Updates are to be released only with significant and/or critical changes from now on however we’ll be trying to expedite the process of doing so to provide faster updates. As we've been giving most of our attention to performance & bug fixes, it's safe to say all of our public release versions have been relatively stable and daily-use worthy. This is to continue for Nougat.

Oh nougat? Yes, we're already on it. We've got a few devices up & running and feature-port will start soon. Some of our already existing features are going to be dropped as they are officially a part of the system now. Although, not to worry we do have a few awesome things in mind to make Nougat even better.

Also, we’re now actively developing on Gerrit / GitHub and everyone out there is free to contribute by submitting to gerrit @ http://gerrit.aospa.co

Cheers and #stayparanoid!

Mako users

I just released a new build for mako that should solve the GPS issues many of you were reporting. You should get an OTA notification for this build.

We are pleased to announce that we are adding new devices to the official Paranoid Android device roster!

The devices that will be added are the Rhine and Kitakami family from Sony as listed below. Downloads are available at http://get.aospa.co

Rhine:
Xperia Z1(honami)
Xperia Z1 Compact (amami)
Xperia Z Ultra (togari)

Kitakami:
Xperia Z3+/Z4 (ivy)
Xperia Z4 Tablet (karin)
Xperia Z5 (sumire)
Xperia Z5 Compact (suzuran)
Xperia Z5 Premium (satsuki)

We know that many of you are eager to get your hands on an N based version of PA, and we are working on that. Please be patient with us as there are significant changes with N that we have to adapt to. In addition, Google has not done a final release for the 6P/6, so we cannot work on those devices. You can always follow our progress on our gerrit (https://gerrit.aospa.co) and GitHub (https://github.com/aospa).

Paranoid Android 6.0.3

This is just a small release for Nexus and Sony that includes the August security patches. CAF devices will come at a later date. Downloads are available at get.aospa.co. You will NOT get an OTA notification for this release, but you will get one for all future releases.

For Nexus, the only device specific change is for mako, which should have working GPS.

For Sony we have a small update from +Tim Graham:

Changes:
Call crashing bug has been fixed (not happened after several tests)
Modem files added for castor and scorpion devices

Flashing:
Before flashing these new builds, we recommend flashing the latest official stock ROM and the latest TWRP for the device. This will ensure that your system is completely ready for Paranoid Android.

We would also love to hear your comments about stability and compatibility with Sony devices, but please keep in mind the following.

Camera:
If you are aware of the current AOSP development state of Sony you might know that the camera quality is not perfect and by no means the stock standard. However, Sony is currently working on the new open source implementation and with some time performance and quality will be improved. The camera software is constantly evolving and improving so all we ask you is some patience.

Device Variants:
Some of you are using different variants of Sony devices. Work is being carried out to provide support on these variants whilst keeping changes to a minimum.

Dual SIM devices will however not be supported at this time. This is due to there not currently being support by AOSP for these types of devices.
