Paranoid Android ROM is back from the dead with Android 10 builds (Update: Even more phones with Quartz 4)

LineageOS is the most-used custom Android ROM around, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for others. Paranoid Android was a popular choice back in the KitKat days, and while the ROM returned in full force with Nougat builds in 2017, there hasn't been much news since. Now the project is back (again), touting Android 10 builds for nine phones so far.

Download the latest OnePlus 7 and 7T series Open Betas, with snazzy new ambient display clocks

OnePlus has just posted downloadable images for the latest Oxygen OS Open Beta updates across the entire 7 and 7T series. Both updates (Open Beta 4 for the 7T/7T Pro and Open Beta 14 for the 7/7 Pro) include a handful of the usual bug fixes and improvements, plus May security patches, but there are two noteworthy features: Call recordings now appear in call history (in markets that have that feature), and the ambient display feature has picked up some eminently snazzy new clock styles.

OnePlus 6/6T and 7/7T series pick up May patch and a lot more with their latest OxygenOS updates

OnePlus has lately stepped up its software-update game following a brief setback late last year. The company’s been taking a proactive approach to release timely major — as well as incremental — updates even to some of its oldest phones, and the newer 7 and 7T lineup have also been consistently receiving their fair share of attention in the form of performance improvements and general optimizations. Keeping up with that spirit, over the past couple of days OnePlus has pushed a buttload of feature and security updates across its range going back to 2018 — including the 6/6T, along with the 7 and 7T series.

This app lets you (sort of) add a notification LED to the OnePlus 8

Shrinking screen bezels have played a big role in the disappearance of the subtly breathing notification LED from our modern phones. An always-on display is a fine middle ground that lets you stay on top of your notifications right from the lock screen, but OnePlus hasn’t been able to perfect it for general availability. While you wait for the feature to see the light of day, the only way to get a notification indicator (well, kind of) on your OnePlus 8 right now is through the aodNotify app, but it brings along with some unwelcome implications.

OnePlus pulls buggy OxygenOS Open Beta 12 for OP7, 7 Pro shortly after release (Update: Statement)

OxygenOS' Open Beta releases are usually very stable, but since they are beta-quality, sometimes there are critical bugs. OnePlus started to roll out Open Beta 12 to the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro a few days ago, but halted the rollout after some people couldn't unlock their phones.

OnePlus 7 series gets improved RAM management and slow-mo videos in OxygenOS 10.0.5 (Update: 7T series too)

OnePlus is usually praised as a manufacturer that updates its devices sooner rather than later, but our data shows that that isn't necessarily the case for the OnePlus 7 Pro. It missed quite a few security patches in the course of the last year. The latest release continues this trend: While OnePlus 7 Pro and 7 have just received an update to OxygenOS 10.0.5 (or 10.3.2 in India), they've only gotten the March security patches, not the ones from April.
