The Paranoid team has finally joined the Android Marshmallow party with its freshly released ParanoidAndroid (PA) AOSPA 6.0 firmware for a spate of Nexus and OnePlus devices. With stock Android ROMs seeing vast improvements in recent times, the custom ROMs have fallen by the wayside.
As the Android Police reports, the decline in the number of custom Android ROMs is due to lack of third-party developer contributions, with the exception of periodic CyanogenMod releases.
Nevertheless, the PA developer team has just released its latest Marshmallow based PA AOSPA ROM (v6.0) with numerous upgrades under the hood. Here are the excerpts from the official developer blog post detailing some noteworthy additions ported into the latest PA ROM:
- More floating window options for apps, including launching floating windows from notifications
- On-the-spot controls for pop-ups to enable or disable relevant settings
- Live rearranging and removing of Quick Settings tiles
- A new gesture engine for launching apps and other settings
- Custom visual elements and backgrounds from Hampus Olsson
Anxious OnePlus and Nexus users may check out the complete list of currently supported devices for the new PA AOSPA 6.0 ROM (below):
