Paranoid Android Quartz 2 brings 4 new features and adds support for the OnePlus 5/5T and OnePlus 7T Pro

Earlier this month, the team behind the popular Paranoid Android custom ROM released Paranoid Android Quartz 1 — the first stable Android 10-based build of the ROM — for a handful of devices. While there have been several unofficial Paranoid Android builds floating around on our forums, Paranoid Android Quartz 1 was the first stable release from the team since their Android Nougat-based builds. For the initial stable release, the team added a boatload of features to the ROM, including things like screen stabilization, a built-in screen recorder, FOD support, vibration adapted UI, and more. Building upon the feedback on the Quartz 1 release, the team is now rolling out Paranoid Android Quartz 2 with 4 new features and support for a few more devices.


According to a recent post on the team’s blog, Paranoid Android Quartz 2 is now rolling out for all supported devices and it includes these new features:

  • Face Unlock
  • New volume panel
  • New statusbar brightness slider
  • Added support for single-tap to ambient display (only on devices with kernel support for it)

Along with the aforementioned features, the Paranoid Android Quartz 2 build brings a fix for a screen recording crash issue that plagued the initial build. The update also includes a few device-specific changes that can be found on the second post of the respective device threads on our forums. Additionally, the build brings support for three new devices, including the OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and OnePlus 7T Pro.
