5.0 ALPHA 1

cover-image The #WeAreBackBaby Edition

It’s been a long time, but we’re finally back and ready to start tasting some lollipops. To start our lollipop journey, we added some goodies to improve AOSP’s state along with some tiny and useful features for a sweet daily use. Lollipop has changed almost everything, and we must think with a different mindset in order to create new features that can provide meaningful improvements over stock while following material design. We’re on it, so don’t worry. Our sauce will have new spices soon enough.

Precautions

First and foremost, if you are flashing from kitkat, stock, or any other ROM we highly recommend a factory reset first. Not doing so may cause strange issues, so if you don't you're on your own.

Second, Galaxy Nexus is not supported anymore on official branch from lollipop. If we manage we'll bring it up within legacy sauce but is not mantained by us anymore like it was before.

For OnePlus and Oppo users, you must flash the latest CM nightly before flashing this release. The CM nightly contains firmware updates necessary to avoid bootloops and broken sensors.

Also Oppo users, The device trees are now split into two variants: Find7s (QHD-2K) and Find7 (FHD-1080p).

Some 3rd party kernels have not yet been updated to include Theme Engine support. If Theme Engine breaks after switching kernels, simply re-flash the build and Google apps to revert to stock kernel.

Other than that, these builds are fairly stable and ready to be used in public, but this is still an alpha build. Hope for awesome buttery smoothness, be ready for a bumpy ride.
In this new iteration of Paranoid Android, super user access (rooting) will be left up to the user.
