Looks like a new entry is ready to rock :) #ParanoidAndroid #RockYourPixelC
PA coming to Pixel C.

Will need testers. Anyone interested just download the file below and install as usual (rom+gapps).

After you've tested just comment here. All feedback is wellcome, even insults.

- I had to decrypt the sdcard before being able to flash from recovery.
- My pixel c is completely usable with this build, if you brick yours it'll be your fault.
- If you don't know how to flash a rom don't ask here, go read a little and then come back and try.

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 BANKS GApps package (hold off on OpenGapps for now, we have heard some complaints). 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!

Individual Icon Pack Support - OnePlus OxygenOS

Did you guys check out the pretty neat feature in OxygenOS's launcher? Me & the incredible +Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo came up with this while working on the launcher. When you have an icon pack installed and you'd want to change a specific icon, you can do so by long-pressing and taking the icon up to the edit button and change the icon or label from any other icon pack you want, pretty basic. But wait, hold up! That's not the cool part, the best part is that the launcher detects & suggests the icon(s) you're looking for within the pack selected as shown on the visual. Pretty slick! 

Would be cool to see this on other launchers too, we're pretty open-minded, really :)

Here's one of the wallpapers bundled with OxygenOS v2 / OnePlus 2. I took this photo while walking back to office from lunch and I decided to polish it a bit by adding the texture up top to the sky. There's a very very strong meaning behind this wallpaper which nobody knows about even at the company.

The wallpaper explains my story at OnePlus, yes. Everything was created in this building. The bottom part (building) of the wallpaper explain the hard times we've been through therefore it's complexity - There's too much going on. Although, after everything is said and done, we go into the right direction, therefore the clean straight lines.

But at the end, at the launch, when the world is ready for us - Everything turns out well, there's always a brighter side and that's where we get to at the end of the road.

All of us over here were extremely nervous about the OnePlus 2 launch. Especially me and +Carlo Savignano as it's our first global product. Looking at all those reviews/first impressions, looking at the launch video of the OnePlus 2 and looking at people like +Marques Brownlee saying awesome things about our system and product always manage to get us teary-eyed. It has been an absolutely crazy ride but I thank +OnePlus for it.
