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

Yep! I know piazza! Bought it immediately after the launch. :p

Quick question - Action Launcher looks great, however, do you think if it affects the overall performance of N6? I never tried any Launcher before, but read many people reporting the battery drain issues. Really liked the dynamic colours of Action Launcher. Is it Worth buying.? Or should we wait for cm12 themes? Suggestion please! 

Soon you will be able to enjoy all your favorite PA features on Vsenn Devices, all while keeping your warranty and the stock features you love.

4.6 BETA 5 - Release Playful Pitaya

This week, PA team members have worked overtime to unravel the previously encountered DSB issues. The product is back to the usual stability, with a bunch of tweaks all around, but still deserving the beta tag.

Most of the work was put into hardening DSB, but an additional configuration option was also added as an experiment mainly for those interested in increased speed. This is more of a "power user" setting as it can have an influence on the battery life - you have been warned - and is not guaranteed to stay around for later releases. To mess around with the setting, just run adb shell su -c 'settings put system experimental_dsb_frequency 2' on your computer, replacing the 2 with any other number of choice. If you find frequencies that seem to work fine for you and still provide solid battery life, feel free to share them.

Quick pointers for the setting:
- The default value for a newly set up device is 2.
- Lower numbers mean slower, higher numbers mean faster.
- You probably don't want to go into negative numbers. It's the ones that are lower than 0.
- The counter caps out at 20. That is CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.
- Going above the maximum of 20 is not going to change anything... Trust us... Just don't try it at home.

Changes new in this release:
- Provide a better flow for bar transitions and DSB
- Add the experimental_dsb_frequency setting (for now)
- Include a pair of themeability changes
- Tweak OPO device-specific code

4.6 BETA 4 - Release Humble Huckleberry

We had to delay the release a bit this week due to some device specific mishaps that were discovered in the final review stage of the builds. As those issues have been resolved, we are happy to announce a pair of delightful changes.

We are making the edit mode of Quick Settings a bit more unified by getting rid of the split between the standard tiles and the temporary tiles such as the remote display/cast tile and the alarm tile. This means you can now hide those tiles and move them around to reorganize the screen just as you want it to be.

We are adding a new default AOSPA wallpaper. This is going to be most prominent for new users but you, experienced user, might be interested in checking it out as well. It is available as the first item on Google Now Launcher backgrounds list and also visible as a part of the "Backgrounds" app choice in other launchers such as Nova.

Please note: The default wallpaper is a bit special on the system and you might still see the old thumbnail. One way to resolve this is to do a clean flash with a factory reset (wiping of userdata). A different, more clean approach is to ask the relevant files to be removed which can be done by flashing like you would normally do and then either
a) opening a terminal/command prompt on your computer, connecting your device up to it and running: adb shell su -c 'rm -f /data/data/; rm -f /data/data/'
b) opening a terminal emulator on your device and running: su -c 'rm -f /data/data/; rm -f /data/data/'

As usual - have fun and #stayparanoid!

The change log:
- Make all Quick Settings tiles act similarly in edit mode
- Add a new default AOSPA wallpaper
- Improve speed and stability of the core
- Adapt to the Peek standalone application package name change

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.

Rainbows and Unicorns!

Now that we have your attention, we're sorry we won't be able to release any new build due to some DSB-related issues.

Just like you, we're also excited about the release of Google's new devices. Which device(s) are you getting?

Play Store apps emancipation

Hi there guys!

Today is the day. My apps are now on my account, as it should've been from the beggining. As many of you already know, Colombian developers weren't allowed to publish paid apps on the play store, which was a shame, because we had to depend on developers from other countries, and that doesn't always ends up well. But now, as Google gave us the option to have our apps uploaded, I was able to make my own account, and started by migrating LockIt to it, which by the way, already reached more than 13.000 installs on its free version!

But this isn't about LockIt. This is about my top selling paid app, which was published over +Francisco Franco 's account, Peek, which has been bought over an insane 10.000 times. I'm more than proud to announce that the app is now fully migrated to my own account, which is good for both you and me.

But what about all the people who already bought the app? No problem at all. All you have to do is download the new free app, and update your app from the old Play store entry; it will become a Pro unlocker. As simple as that!

And what about the people who wants to try the app? No problem either. You can try the free app (which is a FULL working app, with limited options), or purchase the Pro unlocker key on the play store.

That's it? NO! I have more for you. Peek is now even more reliable, and doesn't requires internet connection anymore, plus it's got a color change (material pallete), and soon will get a lot of new features that users have been asking for. 

Are you done? Not yet! I have reduced LockIt and Peek's price substantially, so, if you like free version and want to get Pro version you pay less for the same. How awesome?

Finally, here are the links to all my apps. Thanks for reading!!

PS: Some of the changes to pricing and/or apps, may not be still showing up on Play store.
