Paranoid Android Sapphire Beta for the OnePlus 5 & OnePlus 5T
If you’re still rocking a OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T, you can now try out Android 12 on your device with the new Paranoid Android Sapphire beta release. You can download the beta build from the XDA forum thread linked below. Note that you’ll need to update your phone to the OxygenOS Android 10.0.1 build to install the custom ROM on your device. You’ll also have to unlock its bootloader and install a custom recovery like TWRP before starting the installation.
Although it’s a beta build, early adopters on our forums report that the custom ROM is daily drive material with little to no bugs or issues. Do note that the ROM currently doesn’t support screen-off gestures on these devices.
