Paranoid Android 3

It wasn’t too long ago that custom ROM enthusiasts received a delightful early Christmas present- the first beta build of the AOSPA 4+ (Android KitKat) version of Paranoid Android. After less than a month the development team has already put together an improved beta build, which aims to iron out a few of the early bugs.

For the most part, the beta2 version appears to be stable. As well as a number of bug fixes, this update also adds in new Quick Settings tiles and an optional swanky looking lockscreen blur effect. Here’s a full copy of the change log for beta2:

AOSPA 4.0 Beta 2 <2014-01-13>

  • Updated SuperSU
  • Sprint Hidden Menu
  • Increasing Ringtone
  • Additional Quick Setting Tiles
  • Quick Settings Pulldown (statusbar right side)
  • See Through Lockscreen (blur effect implemented)

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix Sprint data issues
  • Fix lockscreen blur rotation on tablets
  • Fix quick settings edit mode icon transparency
  • Fix possible force close when enabling see through lockscreen
  • Standardize notification LED app selector icon size

Sadly Paranoid Android’s popular Halo, PIE, and powerful Hybrid customization options have not yet made it into the 4+ beta builds. But as the ROM grows increasingly stable, these features should soon be patched in.

You can find the desired ROM files for supported Nexus devices here. Those of you itching to try out the latest build on other devices, like myself, will have to wait for developers to update their ROMs accordingly.

If you’ve tried out the Paranoid Android 4+ beta, let us know what you think.

    Love PA. It was my favorite on my nexus 4, will have to try on my 5!

      Yes it is awesome. It is coming along, and hasn’t implemented halo or pie, but it is still very smooth, and offers a ton of customization. If you want, cataclysm and unitato ROM are both very good, according to my friend.

        Might have to try, especially now we can dual boot ROMs, make trying new ones out very easy. I also like omni, they have some nice features in there!

        • Jayfeather787

          Not just dual boot, as many ROMs as your internal storage can hold!!!!! My dream come true!

            Tell me more about this double. trippling booting? I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy 3. Thanks!

          • Jayfeather787

            Not yet for Samsung Galaxy S3. On Nexus devices, there is something called multi boot that pops up a menu on boot and allows you to boot into separate ROMs. You can run 1 ROM, and then you can click reboot, and reboot into another ROM, which is pretty cool. It is not yet for the Galaxy S3, and I don’t know if it is coming. Anyway, there are a lot of ROMs available for your phone, if you just want one operating system, which is all you can do. Check out your devices development website here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s3/development-i9305 for U.S. version.

            You can dual boot on other devices as well.

          • Jayfeather787

            not a lot. Just the nexus devices, I think one sony phone, the old nook color, and a couple others, but that’s it.

          • tobiasg1

            Thanks. I am running Cyanogenmod 10.1 – And was curious about dual boot. Would love to jump to the Nexus 5 but I am on Verizon :/
