Paranoid Android 3 now available on the four latest Nexus devices

If you have a Nexus device with an unlocked bootloader, this is for you. Chances are if you think of big name, multi-device ROMs, Paranoid Android will be right up there with the likes of CM and AOKP. Now, Paranoid Android 3.0 (PA3) is available for the Nexus 4, 7, 10 and Galaxy Nexus.

One of the headline features of PA3 is called Hybrid Engine, as explained by the devs over at XDA-Developers. While many people confuse this to simply mean you can use your phone in “tablet mode”, it is much more than that. In fact, it gives you the ability to change the layout and dpi of every app individually. Also, you can actually change System UI colours on a per app basis!

These two features, along with the other tweaks included in the ROM, will give you an unprecedented level of control over the appearance of your phone. Other mods include the PIE control system (which replaces the need for the navigation bar) and color optimizations for the Nexus 4 screen.

To read more about PA3 and give it a shot head over to the source link below. Personally, I am caught between this ROM and the new AOKP build. Which one are you guys gonna go for?

    I’m surprised the Pie feature didn’t get an honorable mention. I personally love this feature and prefer using PA with Pie and Tablet UI in tandem. It makes for a great experience and I honestly would love to see Pie brought into AOSP in some form.
