Paranoid Android – Hybrid Custom ROM

In our series of custom ROMs for Android devices, we just had the famous CyanogenMOD which brings latest features of Android 3.4 (CM10.2) on a large variety of smartphones out there in the Android Galaxy. Our little green Droids make their home on nearly every mobile phone and tablet device. Just released by Google this month, Android 4.3 main developer branch made it already into the latest nightly builds of Paranoid Android. Known for its Hybrid mode, the custom ROM from Paranoid Android allows apps to scale themselves by system app or widget.

Source of Installation

The Paranoid Android Team is really busy, following their social network activity on Google+ page offers a lot of daily information, details, tips and tweaks on customizing the Paranoid ROM system for specific devices or purposes.

Development Updates

The team is constantly working on bug fixing and implementing new features from the main development branch of Google’s Android 3.4. Primary source for updates and release information is given by their Google+ page. Paranoid Android is available as nightly build and soon as next official release version. Stable versions offer overall phone stability, so only install beta versions (or nightly builds) to your phone if you are sure on that version compatibility.

Paranoid Android is another great ROM project, but is it the best of all? Every user has his personal preferences what a mobile phone must have to offer. This custom ROM project tries to provide state-of-the-art design with proven functionality using latest Android features of v3.4 developer branch.

    Thank you Tom for sharing the word. CM is IMHO the most famous custom ROM for Android and not from anywhere 😉
