Paranoid Android 4.6 beta 5 “Playful Pitaya” goes live

Paranoid Android has made another beta release of the 4.6 branch of their custom ROM, and this time they're back on track at hammering out the feature set for Dynamic Status Bars, or DSB in the ROM's parlance. But although the dev team just ironed out some pretty major showstopper bugs, they seem to be inviting even more headache by letting users fine tune the DSB animation just the way they want it right down to the last millisecond.

Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 4: Quick Settings, new wallpaper

Due to some technical difficulties, Paranoid Android had to delay the fourth beta of their 4.6 release series. Fret not PA fans, as that update is now upon us. For a slight change, this release doesn't focus on the Dynamic Status Bars, lovingly called DSB. Instead, it gives a bit of polish to the Quick Settings tiles feature. And as a bonus, Paranoid Android is introducing a new default wallpaper, one that has the project's AOSPA moniker clearly emblazoned for everyone to see and enjoy.

Peek moved to developer’s own name, new app pages added

Popular Android utility Peek has a major update, but it's not one that has added new features or fixes bugs. Instead, the update is that the app is now filed under the account of Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo or jedga, Peek's author, instead of his Google Play Store "proxy" Francisco Franco.

Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 1 now available

Paranoid Android is one of the many flavors of Android out there that are focused on open devices. Paranoid Android is updated regularly and the last time we talked about it was in mid-August when 4.5 beta 2 landed for fans to try out. Only a few weeks later we have a new beta version that brings Paranoid Android to 4.6 Beta 1.

Paranoid Android 4.5 Beta 2 gives Recents a bit more polish

You can really tell how dedicated (or alternatively, obsessed) developers are with a feature when releases are dedicated mainly to the improvement of a single, but arguably major, feature. Inching ever closer, hopefully, to a final release, the Paranoid Android team has released Beta number 2 of version 4.5 with, you guessed it, another round of changes to the redesigned Recents view.

Paranoid Android 4.5 Alpha 3: choose your Recents style

Another week, another Paranoid Android Alpha teaser. And like the previous two before it, 4.5 Alpha 3 focuses on changes to the redesigned Recent Apps view. Aside from visual polish and performance improvements, the dev team is now allowing PA users to decide whether they want to use the new Material-inspired visuals or stick to the conventional KitKat style.
