This is a testament to how well Samsung built the Galaxy S3, that it is still alive and kicking – and custom Lollipop ROMs are still being built for it today.

OnePlus says that it is close to fully revealing the stuff that makes up its new OxygenOS. But before that, it is teasing its fans with a few juicy tidbits, like the core people who will be working on its own custom Android ROM.

Paranoid Android is Vsenn’s first approved ROM partner

You might have had some doubts about how legit this new Vsenn modular phone is, but this announce could perhaps put you at ease just a bit. Vseen is announcing the start of its "Approved ROM Partner" (ARP) program and the first ROM to be part of it is Android Open Source Paranoid Android or AOSPA, more popularly known simply as Paranoid Android.

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.
