Oh, what a dickbutt!
+Hemant Shah
This is the first time I'm requesting the entire G+ Android community for your help, as this is a very serious issue.

Okay. So I guess at least a few of you remember "GFX Bandits" or at least one or more apps by them like Meteora, Oblique, Cresto ..etc. To those who are not aware, GFX Bandits was a team formed in back in 2012 in XDA which consisted of a group of individuals (including me) who liked designing. A common playstore account was opened under the same name (after previous - gfxdevs, got banned due to some issue), managed by Hemant Shah. All the information about app sales, refunds, earnings..etc were managed by Hemant Shah alone. Hemant would let us know about our earnings and would pay us the amount which he 'calculated after deducting refunds' This went for around 1 1/2 years with none of us doubting him. Long story short, there were many issues after our previous account, ie gfxdevs got banned, Hemant claimed that I had to pay him around 26,000 INR (around $387.25) which was 'deducted from his credit card' from 'refunds' of an app which was removed after the ban of previous account. Naturally you would get suspicious since the card didnt show anything about amount deductions related to refunds or such. We all got into a heated argument about the issue and he said later on that he 'filed a case' and mailed google about the issue and after 2-3 days he says that Google sent him this mail (attached below) about the amount which was charged mistakenly (image attached) and that I didn't need to pay him back the $387 anymore ( Please read the email thoroughly, you will understand immediately what he was trying to pull). Stuff happened after that came into light and the team split. Shortly after, one by one, we were removed from the dev console. That happened around a year back but the paid apps by +Subhajit Deb +Lifehacker Ash +Mohammed Musaddiq +Vishal Kashi still remained in the account and are still there as paid app. It bothers me that the people who spent day and night working on their apps, the earnings of those apps going into pocket of Hemant who had nothing to do with those apps. Yes, its been around a year since we were removed from console and none of the guys with the paid apps were notified of sales and were paid since then.
So we asked him kindly to either make the apps free or unpublish them from playstore since we didn't want him to accuse him or shame him in public. He agreed to make the apps free. So we waited for more than a day. He didn't do shit. Then I got to know from one former team member +Areeb Jamal that he got access to dev console (after we were removed) when he asked long back. So we got him to unpublish the apps. Not long after he did, the apps were back in playstore again, as paid app ofcourse and limited his permissions to his own app. When we asked him for the reason, what he said is the reason why I decided to bring this matter to public (Screenshot of conversation attached).

According to him, he's still "paying for refunds" from apps that were removed along with old account more than 1 1/2 years back. God knows how many thousands of dollars he leeched from us and what's more he won't stop and still wants to continue ! His reason ? He wants the 25$ playstore fee back (even when i already paid him from my share of earnings long back).
Is this justice ?
Guys like him shouldn't be allowed in playstore.

So what I request from you guys is that please report the following mentioned apps and get them removed from playstore :

Trim'd Icon pack by +Mohammed Musaddiq :

Oblique Icon Pack by +Mohammed Musaddiq :

Oras Icon Pack by +Vishal Kashi:

Cresto Icon Pack by Subhajit Deb :

Spectrum Clocks by +Lifehacker Ash :

Rovul Icon Pack by +Vishal Kashi :

Meteora Icon Pack by +Mohammed Musaddiq :

Flume UI by +Vishal Kashi :

Even if this has nothing to do with you, for the sake of my former mates, for the sake of justice, Please take a moment of your time to REPORT those apps and get them removed from playstore and get the play account banned ASAP.

If you don't mind, please RESHARE this post and get as many people you can to report the same.

Thank you for your time.

About Time!
Paranoid Android 2016 Launch

We are launching brand spanking fresh. All new features. New team members. New everything and we have made sure that everything that we are releasing has been polished to our best.

The main features and enhancements that you will probably end up noticing are our custom Quick Settings tile reordering functionality, floating window support, immersive mode, the new on-the-spot interface and CM Theme Engine.

Quick Settings tiles can be managed with ease - you can reorder the tiles by simply long pressing them, remove them by dropping them in the trash bin and add them back in from the add panel. The hidden tiles will be out of your way when checking the notifications but will still be usable from the add panel without any hassles if you want to do that all of a sudden.

You can make an application float either by long pressing a notification and tapping the floating button or by tapping the floating button for the application in the recents list. Additionally, you can make peeking (heads-up) notifications open floating windows by enabling that behavior in the "Floating peek" tile.

Those are not the only changes and features we have added. There are a variety of improvements to CAF devices (OnePlus, OPPO and others) which add custom kernels, advanced gesture and buttons control and more to provide a great experience on those devices. Of course we have spent a lot of attention on making all the visual details look right and on making all the functionality work right.

Over the months we have gained a bunch of new team members. We are now ready for all varieties of work - be it low level, aesthetics, user experience, motion design, testing or anything in-between. What we strive for is the best and we are stronger than ever to reach that.

On Paranoid Android 2016 launch we are supporting popular Nexus devices (6P, 5X, 6, 5, 4, 7 2013, 9) and the OnePlus family (One, 2, X) along with some Sony devices. The lineup is this way to make sure we release the best possible experience on all the devices we release for. No compromises, pure greatness.

We highly recommend everyone to use OpenGapps full version (do not use stock). Nexus 6P users need to make sure their vendor partitions are up-to-date (6.0.1). Our Nexus 5X builds come with a prebuilt vendor image so no worries for you folks!

There is more to come in #aospa2016 but for now, grab your builds at and #stayparanoid!
