Android with another version is ready to hit the market

So, today’s article is about the Nougat flavor of Paranoid Android. We have a lot in store - with a mix of both features & improvements.

Paranoid Android 2017 builds on its predecessors with some brand new features and support for recent devices. The ROM once again includes the unique Pie UI element, which holds shortcut controls at the bottom of the display, but what exactly is new in this latest build we’ll have to wait and see.

Here is a list of some of the other included features:
  • Color Engine
  • On-the-spot controls
  • Immersive mode
  • Paranoid OTA (Updates)
  • Battery styles
  • Advanced Power dialog
  • Recents app locking
  • Quick pull-down
  • Substratum support
  • Enhanced kernel + control
The list is similar to what that which rolled out in the 6.0.2 build for the OnePlus 2 last year though there are a couple of changes. For example, Color Engine replaces the Theme Engine as the function for changing the UI’s appearance. This is found in the ‘settings’ menu and allows you to select custom colors for the interface (including a dark mode).

Paranoid Android 2017 will also include the following features for OnePlus devices:
  • Advanced buttons control
  • Advanced gesture control
  • Alert slider support
  • Fingerprint enhancements
  • Camera enhancements
The Paranoid team seems particularly pleased with the latter of those, stating in its promo document: “Our picture quality and image processing, not to brag, may be significantly better than OEMs [sic].” What’s more, the team also tapped Hampus Olsson, the artist behind the OnePlus wallpapers, to provide the systems’ default wallpaper.


  • Oneplus 3(T) custom camera HAL: Resulting in better picture quality than OEM.
  • Implemented custom
  • Picture background processing leading to very fast shutter speed (OnePlus 3(T)
  • Offscreen gestures
  • sRGB support(OnePlus 3(T) specific)
  • Alert slider

Currently we are only supporting a few select devices.
