It appears like Paranoid Android compatibility is going to be added to the Nothing Phone just a few days after its official presentation and a flood of internet content for a startup (1).
This information follows kernel source code and full device tree were made available to give ROM and custom kernel developers the ability to work on creating their own OS forks and more. The third-party ROM is about to launch for Phone, according to an a tweet proclaiming that resulted from a Twitter conversation between the official Paranoid Android account and Nothing CEO Carl Pei (1).
It’s unclear exactly how installing a custom ROM on the mid-ranger will benefit you given that the Phone (1) comes pre-installed with a clean, lightweight copy of Android 12. Nevertheless, during the past few months, additional devices have been gradually added to the list of supported devices, bringing Paranoid Android back to life. This can be an enticing proposition for individuals who desire total control over their devices and the freedom to customize in ways that are not feasible with standard skins.
Nothing OS is essentially identical to the version of Android you’ll find on Pixel devices, with the exception of a few adjustments to make use of the Glyph lighting and some usability-related modifications. Long before the Nothing Phone, Carl Peis OnePlus hired a large portion of the original Paranoid Android crew to work on OxygenOS (1). As Nothing OS matures, it will be fascinating to see whether any Paranoid Android features flow over or are absorbed by it.
Unfortunately, no estimated time period was provided for when the Nothing Phone might be able to be flashed with Paranoid Android (1). The worth might have somewhat increased if you enjoy fiddling with your phone.
