Paranoid Android 4.4 RC2 Now Available

Just one week ago, we talked about how the Paranoid Android team released the first release candidate for their Android 4.4.3-based PA 4.4 ROM. For those who don’t remember, PA4.4 RC1 brought many new advancements. In addition to merging the latest goodies from Android 4.4.3, this release also brought an updated Hover notification system and support for the new CyanogenMod Theme Engine.

Now, the Paranoid Android team has gone ahead and released a second release candidate for PA 4.4, which primarily squashes several relatively impactful bugs.For starters, Hover, Peek, and Pie have seen basic improvements. Next, Quick Settings was received fixed theme support and other miscellaneous fixes. Upstream patches were also added to the CM Theme engine, and various force close and recent apps issues were fixed. In addition, lens blur was also fixed for users running the Nexus 5 build. There aren’t really any major new features in this build, but if you were affected by the aforementioned bugs, RC2 couldn’t have come sooner.

You can learn more by heading over to the official G+ announcement post. And if you’ve got a current generation Nexus device and you want to get in on the ROM action, head over to the Paranoid Android download portal. And once you’re locked and ready to go, be sure to check out our dedicated Paranoid Android, as well as your home device forum here on XDA to learn more.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures.
