Paranoid Android 4.4 RC1 Now Available for Supported Devices!

Ever since it first appeared several years ago, Paranoid Android has unquestionably been one of the leaders in bringing new and innovative user-facing features to its users. The PA Team has a long history of delivering revolutionary ideas such as Halo, Pie Controls, and many more.

Because of the team’s continual innovation, Paranoid Android has earned more than its fair share of diehard fans. And now, we’ve got some great news for PA fans. Paranoid Android 4.4 RC1 has just been released for supported devices, which brings PA 4.4 one step closer to its eventual stable release.

So what’s in PA 4.4 RC1? Perhaps the biggest feature on everyone’s mind isn’t exactly a feature, but rather the latest version of Android. Thankfully, the PA Team managed to merge Android 4.4.3 into PA 4.4 RC1. But of course, this being Paranoid Android we’re talking about, you know that it doesn’t end here.

In addition to the 4.4.3 merge, PA 4.4 RC1 brings the new Hover notification system. However, the version of Hover found in RC1 also adds two new tricks: Hover doesn’t open if the notification is from the current foreground app, and the ticker now shows apps that are blacklisted from Hover. PA 4.4 RC1 also brings the updated CyanogenMod Theme Engine, which was first seen in last week’s CM11 M7 builds.

You can learn more about what exactly has gone into Paranoid Android 4.4 RC1 by heading over to the ParanoidAndroid Google+ page. And to jump on the PA bandwagon and load it on your own device, simply head over to the Paranoid Android Download Server and grab a build for your device.
