Last monday we introduced our first release candidate, that sadly included a couple of ugly bugs like Chrome one. Today not only recently introduced bugs have been squashed out. We extended Theme Engine support to other AOSP apps along with fixing some system components not getting themed (On-The-Spot and system dialogs). Also many improvements have been made to our features and many bug tracker tickets have been closed. Thanks to you all.
Hover - General improvements
Peek - Improved sensors algorithm
Quicksettings - Fixed theme support - Separate dimension for dual tile switch so themers can edit it separately - Other small fixes
Pie - General improvements
Theme Engine - Upstream feature patches/fixes - Fixed system and on the spot dialogs theming - Other fixes
Recents - Fixed clear all glitch on quick double press while many apps are loaded - Crash preventing patches
General - Fixed various force closes (Chrome, Settings, DocumentsUI) - Fix input settings empty screen when launching from keyboard - Fixed Safe Headset Volume dialog Softboot
Nexus 5 - Fixed lens blur rendering
P.S. If you like the themes in the image below #Flux (left) theme is available in the PlayStore, show +John Xionidis some love. #Nue (right) theme by +Arz Bhatia isn’t available yet, stay paranoid :)
When I enable Hover, I get several text notifications for the same text and tapping any of them results in Google Search crashing to the point that I have to reboot my phone to use it. This is RC2 on a Nexus 5.
RC2 works perfectly so far on my N5. Great job guys. Im still hoping for the addition of status bar brightness controle by swiping. It could easily be implemented without an extra menu (the Google way). But hey I leave it up to you guys.
I don't know what's wrong, but I flashed 4.4 RC2 earlier this morning on my GSM Galaxy Nexus and got no cell service. Didn't get asked for PIN or anything; when I tried to choose my network (M-Tel Bulgaria) manually, I got a message that it's unavailable. I flashed RC2 over RC1 without flashing new GApps (I had the pack from 1-2 weeks ago). I tried manually wiping /system, but it's the same. Back to RC1 for now...
What radio should I be running (it may be the cause)?
Back a couple versions ago, I disabled the clear all from recents feature by mistake. Does anyone know how to change it back? The far right soft key only escapes the recent apps list when I'd like it to clear the apps. Thanks.
Got errors when updating from RC1 to RC2... What i did is reboot to TWRP and did a fresh install using the downloaded RC2 rom and Latest GAPPs on the download folder on the PA-OTA folder... Everything now is working great!
+Anas Khalid oh my you have some reading to do😏 you need to first unlock your boot loader and root your phone then install a custom recover and flash this Rom. I would do a Google search of 'how to root my nexus5' and start with that. This is not just as simple as installing an app....just read you'll see and if you do will be all here waiting🍻
Are there any plans to restore the PIE functionality from 3.99? It was truly perfect and no other version of pie controls even comes close. Will the options ever return or are you guys sticking with PIE lite/nerfed?
Don't suppose you guys have any resources on building these themes? I'd like to try my luck at designing one of my own but I don't really know where to get started. I'm hoping there's a theme builder of some sort that will compile my assets into an apk?
Its not a feature request but you may consider as suggestion. The battery text in the circle battery looks a little bit offset. It may be just limited to my eyes but the circle battery of CM looks more authentic and seems to be in line of PA's strategy of maintaining the features streamlined.
I had the same issue as some others did with google keyboard after installing RC2 and gapps on N5. I reinstalled the older gapps and all is well, but I'll try again to update later and see if the keyboard works.
I'm getting a continuous systemui FC after dirty flashing RC2 over RC1 on grouper. Is it supposed to be clean flash only? I'll try to get a log and post in the bug tracker later today, if someone hasn't already done so by then.
GREAT version, loving RC2. Only problem is I lost root after a dirty flash... Well, it said it was rooted but every app failed to get root access. Trying a clean flash now. Did anyone else experience this after a dirty flash?
+Joshua Bluehawk you didn't lose root unless you flashed a kernel that removed it. It might have gotten disabled in developer settings or superuser app. The /system partition is read only and a single file (su binary) can't just disappear.
Guys, need some help.. Nothing to do with Rom but with google now.. Strangely google now always shows no internet connection and does not load.. With Wi-Fi and 3g both I have tried but cant load google now.. Didn't want to post it in bug tracker as this may likely not be a rom issue.. Anyone else having this trouble or a fix for this? Device is Mako! Thanks and sorry for spamming this thread!
+Алексей Матвеев you can't blame a rom for a hard brick. there is nothing the rom can do to cause a hard brick. without a better description of your issue, there is absolutely no recommendation that can be given. does it boot? what is YOUR definition of 'hard brick', because I know what the real definition of hard brick is.
I was only scrolling my launcher, when the screen comes black, but it was turned on. After 1 minute i press down a power button and the phone turns off completely. Now it's not responding completely, and when i connect it to PC, i have a unknown device named: "QHSUSB_DLOAD" (Hard bricked phone).
Great to know you fixed the Sage Headphone soft reset bug, it was incredibly annoying! I came back home today thinking that I should post it l, even though you probably were already aware of it. But it wasn't necessary, because the awesome ParanoidAndroid OTA updater sent me the new version. Thanks for your dedication!
Dirty flashed rc2 over rc1, was running rock solid, today morning alarm was ringing, and got couple of FCs, phone rebooted and now, settings are gone, many things are not responding like google search, status bar, nav bar.... Going bavk to the stable beta...
+Franklin Ford If you are on a legacy device (not a nexus) you need to be in immersive. If you are on a nexus device, just hit the recents button and it will prompt you the first time to set it to clear all.
I just received an OTA update of GAPPS "pa_gapps-stock-4.4.3-2014XXXX-signed.zip". Would I have to flash it from recovery once it's downloaded? OR would installing it (once it's downloaded) from the Paranoid OTA app be enough?
+Matt Flaming from my experience ART shouldn't be used until Google officially incorporates it into Android. It's still experimental and it has crashed my phone on several occasions when using PA. I don't use xposed at all. Dalvik is still the most stable choice on PA.
Nice work, but in immersive mode I experienced some issues with pie control. It's delayed a bit and sometimes it doesn't respond. The best implementation still remains the one of RC 3.99 version. Are you planning to improve it in next releases?
In fact, I think that that bug is very random. When you touch a folder, it may be transparent or not. I just installed this rom yesterday
Also I found a bug in the AOSP Browser: when you activate "Quick Controls" under Lab settings menu, the address bar freezes and the "loading indicator" (a blue line under the address bar) turns into a weird line.
On Nexus 4, if you want to use Franco Kernel with PA RC2, note that wifi will not work with Franco r208. There is a "test" version of Franco r209, and PA RC2 wifi works with that. I'm on Nexus 4 PA RC2 with Franco test r209, and everything is working great! Thanks to all devs.
My battery life on rc1 was amazing. After doing a clean full wipe install with this version, the battery drains faster. I charged my n5 to 100% last night and this morning it was at 92% with rc1 I did the same thing and it was at 97% when u had woken up. Is anyone else's battery draining faster?
Hi guyz, sorry to post that here but I've some issues after upgrading today from 4.4beta1 140605 to RC2. I can't move anymore any app to my internal sdcard although I can see it in system settings -> Storage ; and not full. Does anyone have the same issue?
