Howdy,

Many of you may have noticed that our website and Gerrit have gone down. There are rumours that this is us preparing for release however it is actually more of a hinderance - Our funds have run dry & bills are piling up.

We are extremely close to releasing however we are now stumped as we cannot continue developing until our servers are back online. This is when we would like to turn to you, our (potential) users and ask for your help in our comeback.

If you feel you could help us in any way please get in touch via the Official Community or via our Telegram Group or visit our PayPal page below.

Space Oddity

We are now reaching our server capacity. While we are not big fans of monetization and/or asking for donations, but with the all the device support requests and our desire to work on more and more devices, we are having to look at ways to be able to provide continued support.

Currently, we are looking to expand our infrastructure. To do this, we have no other choice but to accept donations/infrastructure contributions.

If you think this is something you could help us with, please contact us by replying below and we’ll reach out to you personally. You can send us a message too if you happen to know anyone on the team.


Sources

Kernel and most platform sources are already online. The rest of platform and the device specific sources will go online within a week from now.


Future

We are currently considering this as our last major update for Nougat and we are shifting our focus to Android Oreo now. If we happen to work on any critical bugs, you can expect to see more updates. Otherwise, we think we’re solid!

PA + Substratum

We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with the folks at Substratum. We have a few things planned with them that we hope will be beneficial to all of our users.

Our main goal is to bring a more seamless theming experience to AOSPA which will allow you to customise the look and feel of your device easily without going through a plethora of menus and options. With our reputation of wanting to release something that is well polished and to a professional standard, we believe that this partnership will provide our users with what they know of PA and trust.

We’re planning to develop an entirely new theming section with the great UI/UX you can come to expect from PA.

FOSS all the things!

We’re finally releasing the secret recipe for all of our features.

This includes Pie, Color Engine, Pocket Lock, Swiping Screenshot and Accidental Touch meaning all of you can have feature packed unofficial builds for your devices. We hadn’t done this already as we weren’t convinced enough that everything is polished the Paranoid Android way but we’re glad to say that it is now.

This gives you all the ability to play around with everything that makes PA different from anything else out there and we invite you to help us fix and also improve our features by contributing to our Gerrit.

Paranoid Android 2017 - Release 2 (7.2.0)

Over the past month, we’ve been working hard squashing bugs and implementing new features. We have also managed to increase our device roster so more of you could enjoy Paranoid Android on your devices.

Pocket Lock

This feature prevents any form of accidental input when your device is in your pocket by disabling input sources. You can simply release Pocket Lock by long pressing the power button as highlighted by the minimal UI incase of any sort of obstruction or dust on the sensors.

Accidental Touch

Accidental Touch is a feature useful for many, especially the gamers out there. It prevents any sort of accidental touch on hardware buttons while the touchscreen is in use. This means you won’t experience any unexpected behaviour while playing games, web browsing or even when attempting to reach your finger out to the edge of that humongous display.

Improvements to Color Engine

With this release, we are introducing gray as a new primary and accent color which will sit alongside our already present colors. Also, we have fixed all known compatibility issues with Substratum Theme Engine.

New Devices

As promised we now feel that the OnePlus One, OnePlus X and the Nextbit Robin are stable enough to be included in our roster along with several other devices detailed below:

bacon - OnePlus One
onyx - OnePlus X
gemini - Xiaomi Mi5
shamu - Nexus 6
Robin - Nextbit Robin
zl1 - LeEco Le Pro3

You’re probably wondering why the OnePlus 2 didn’t make it to the list but worry not, it’ll be up as soon as we can ensure good quality for it. Same goes for the Nexus 5 (Hammerhead).

Sony

We personally also want to support the Sony Xperia line of devices and we teased a post of the Xperia Z3 Compact and the Xperia X both running AOSPA somewhere in the community recently. However, our infrastructure is not able to cope with the vast number of devices. We’d like all Sony users to answer in a poll for which devices you’d like to see added and we’ll support the devices with the most amount of votes.

Please cast your votes here - https://goo.gl/forms/ir7sJBmbhEh2djce2

Winds of Change

We are proud to announce that the Paranoid Android team has managed to strike up a collaboration with the creator of Shuttle+ to bring you a feature rich, modern music player.

This brings benefits like:
Google Cast to your TV
Scrobbling to Last.fm
Embedded lyrics
ID3 tag editing
Batch creation of playlists
Themes
and much more

We’re excited to have this partnership and believe it will bring a better user experience for our users with a lot more functionality.

Release Management

After the first release a while ago, there were several device specific issues reported. We did not roll out device specific hotfixes as our OTA system (Paranoid Hub) was broken and forced us to provide an update for all devices at once (this release). This release fixes all issues for ParanoidOTA and you should receive device hotfixes whenever needed.

Overview

Global Changes:
Option for double tap to sleep on status bar
Screen off action for button settings
Fix for navigation bar swiping
Notification light fixes and improvements
Updated PA browser based on M60
Pulse on pickup fixed
Different fixes for contacts handling and integration into Google apps
Various Bluetooth connectivity fixes
Improvements for hardware key lighting
Higher quality wallpapers
Optimized fingerprint unlock speed
Fixed reboot to recovery message
Various performance enhancements
Various power related enhancements
Other fixes and improvements which will have to be discovered by you :)

OnePlus 3/3T:
Fixed various camera crashes
Fix for manual ISO control
Improved quality and post-processing in our custom camera HAL

Optimized NFC toggling speed

Reworked automatic brightness tuning
Fix for lid support
Various major performance improvements
Improvements to memory management
Fix for the known idle drain issue
Various power related enhancements
Note: We generally recommend f2fs users to switch back to ext4 as f2fs has GC issues which can result in performance issues over time. This issue is not specific to this update and exists in stock as well.

Marlin/Sailfish:
Fixed Google camera crashes
Fixed NFC tile
Updated kernel to latest EAS upstream
Merged latest security patches
Backported changes from O preview
Improved memory management when under pressure
Note: OTA updates for these devices are currently unsupported and also a reflash of gapps would be needed after installing the update.

Sources

Kernel sources are already online. The rest of the device specific sources will go online until the end of the week.
