OnePlus 2 International Invite Giveaway

The OnePlus 2 recently got released and it’s the device everyone wants to get their hands on. Although, you know how hard it is to actually buy the device. 

Well, as you may or may not know some of our PA team members are working @OnePlus and have enough influence in the invites department of the company.

This is an international OnePlus 2 64GB invite giveaway meaning it covers country-exclusive invites too. We are giving away 20 invites for now and if we get a good response, maybe we'd do more in the coming weeks.

So, what do you need to do to get that precious invite?
Tell us what would you do WITH the OnePlus 2? - A rather more realistic campaign. 

Fill in the giveaway form in our blog post linked below and you'll be all set. The winners will be announced & contacted next week.

Paranoid Android 5.0 Alpha 2

We are rolling out PA 5.0 Alpha 2 builds to the public right now, but first off, a big warning. As of right now, addon.d backup functions are not included in the build. This means you are required to manually flash GApps, SuperSU and all your other extras after flashing the Alpha 2 ZIP. Seriously, you have been warned - do not reboot without re-flashing the GApps package you use. (Unless you have backups.)

A large and fairly important part of the changes consists of Theme Engine improvements, but we are not skipping out on in-house changes. These builds feature the re-introduction of App Ops. Initially made available back in Android 4.3 as a hidden away feature that was later removed and left fairly untouched in AOSP, it has been revived for Android 5.0 and should make your permission restrictioning much easier to do. You can now also reorder your Quick Settings tiles. The layout for them is still the same - two expanded tiles at the top row and a slew of smaller tiles below that, but dragging tiles around allows you to pick their ordering manually instead of being restricted to the AOSP way.

Experiment with tile ordering and protect yourself against all the applications wanting to access all the things.


- Quick Settings are now reorder-friendly
- App Ops re-introduced in the Settings app
- CM TE updates included

#StayParanoid and, as always, get your builds at

The #WeAreBackBaby  Edition

It’s been a long time, but we’re finally back and ready to start tasting some lollipops. To start our lollipop journey, we added some goodies to improve AOSP’s state along with some tiny and useful features for a sweet daily use. Lollipop has changed almost everything, and we must think with a different mindset in order to create new features that can provide meaningful improvements over stock while following material design.  We’re on it, so don’t worry. Our sauce will have new spices soon enough.

First and foremost, if you are flashing from kitkat, stock, or any other ROM we highly recommend a factory reset first. Not doing so may cause strange issues, so if you don't you're on your own.

Second, Galaxy Nexus is not supported anymore on official branch from lollipop. If we manage we'll bring it up within legacy sauce but is not mantained by us anymore like it was before.

For OnePlus and Oppo users, you must flash the latest CM nightly before flashing this release. The CM nightly contains firmware updates necessary to avoid bootloops and broken sensors.

Also Oppo users, The device trees are now split into two variants: Find7s (QHD-2K) and Find7 (FHD-1080p). 

Some 3rd party kernels have not yet been updated to include Theme Engine support. If Theme Engine breaks after switching kernels, simply re-flash the build and Google apps to revert to stock kernel.

Other than that, these builds are fairly stable and ready to be used in public, but this is still an alpha build. Hope for awesome buttery smoothness, be ready for a bumpy ride.
In this new iteration of Paranoid Android, super user access (rooting) will be left up to the user.


- Update the baseline to AOSP Lollipop 5.0.2
- Improvements to Heads Up, such as an option to disable heads up interruptions completely
- Add Quick Unlock
- Extend the power menu
- Animate the volume panel in a more material manner
- Make it possible to skip songs using volume buttons when the device is locked
- Add CM12 Theme Engine
- Fix various small annoyances from AOSP

Nexus PA 5.1 builds are out

It’s true, our development hasn’t been as quick as you were used to but we're here with some new and tasty builds. We also have some important news regarding our plan with Nexus moving forward. So if you're keen to #StayParanoid please read them carefully!

First of all, let's talk about releases. We are proud to announce a new Nexus release based on the latest AOSP version but with our some of our key features baked in such as Theme Engine, Quick Settings Reordering, App Ops, Advanced Power Menu and the long awaited Immersive mode. Additionally, the shamu build allows WiFi calling (for T-Mo US users) and VoLTE (for T-Mo US and Verizon users).

Builds are out for shamu, hammerhead, mako, flounder, flo and grouper. We are missing support for mobile tablets and manta because we don't have the device in our hands. If you do have one of these and are willing to test for us, please contact +Evan Anderson at to get hooked up with the testing process.

Keep in mind, you will have to flash a GApps package. For most devices, we suggest TK GApps which are a continuation of the old-school PA GApps. For flounder, Banks 64bit GApps are advised instead. Additionally, if you are using a flounder, you should flash the vendor partition of the LMY47X factory image to avoid system issues - and if you are not comfortable with doing that for any reason, you should wait for the next build as it will include a minor change that will get rid of this requirement.

It has been a really long time since we released our latest public build, as you might have noticed. The legacy part of the team have been working hard to keep the work up and they switched to a separate release schedule a while back. That left the Nexus family a bit behind, but with the combined help of the Nexus and legacy team, we are ready to release today. This has happened because we are missing the manpower we had in the past on our core team.

As maintaining a solid release schedule does not seem viable as of now we've thought we should  release when there are enough changes merged to make a difference with the previous public build. So instead of the previous “weekly release” we're switching to a "release when appropriate" schedule.

Really though, right now we need more awesome people who want to work on things and make a difference, so if you like to code, just consider what you would like to change in the Android-o-sphere and try going for it. We welcome any contributions on our gerrit at You can contact +Valter Strods  on Hangouts or +Evan Anderson  at if you have any questions.

Finally we want to give thanks to all our users who waited for this release, we know that some of you are still on KitKat because you don't want to miss the feature spec you had. Also we need to thank all the members of our crew who are working on this project, buying their free time from family and leisure, all our team members are awesome. With that said, Thanks!

Builds are rolling out on and, as always, #StayParanoid

At Paranoid Android, we go for providing the best usability and design. All day, every day. This is accomplished by dedication to the work. To celebrate that, we are pushing a brand new website. 

The website follows Paranoid Android's new design language aiming to help new and experienced users alike learn about us and our features through simple animations and short descriptions. You can learn about our team members through the Team page on the site, download the official AOSPA wallpapers for both desktops and mobile devices or easily reach important links from the menu. 

The downloads section also received an overhaul following a clean and bold design. You can now reach downloads for both Official and Legacy devices at the same place. 

The website is responsive, looks great on all displays and can be checked out right now at so head over there and #stayparanoid.

Dynamic System Bars for all!

This week, we decided the time has come. The time of open-source Dynamic System Bars (DSB). This doesn't mean much for you if you just use the releases day to day on an official device. What this means is that unofficial builds (be it personal or 'unsupported' device), can pick the appropriate commits providing even those builds with DSB. Keep in mind that DSB is not merged into the main kitkat branch as of right now and must still be manually merged from Gerrit.
