As announced by XDA Recognized Developer 33bca, Paranoid Android Sapphire Alpha 3 based on Android 12 is now available for the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and OnePlus 8T. In addition, the developer has also released the first Sapphire build for the OnePlus 9RT. The developer notes that the build is based on OnePlus 8T sources.

The full update changelog for the Sapphire Alpha 3 hasn’t been posted yet, but we expect the new build to address many issues and bugs present in the previous build. If you own any of these phones and want to try out the new build, you can download the latest update from the links below. If you’re running Alpha 2, you can just sideload the OTA in recovery. New users will have to perform a clean installation, which requires wiping user data. Be sure to take a full backup of data before attempting to install the ROM.
The third build for the OnePlus 8 series comes just weeks after the team released Sapphire Alpha 3 for the OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro, and POCO F2 Pro.
