Another popular Android custom ROM is coming for Xiaomi Mi 9T, a device which is also known as Redmi K20 in China and India. Paranoid Android comes in par with LineageOS in term of popularity.
Designed and brought by a team of many contributors, the Paranoid Android is a custom ROM aiming to extend the system. The main noticeable works in the user’s side are the look and feel of its main user interface (UI).
Its development team works on enhancing the already existing beauty of Android by following the same design philosophies that were set forward by Google for the Android Open Source Project (ParanoidAndroid.co).
Recently, an XDA member 33bca announces the release of Paranoid Android for the Xiaomi Mi 9T a.k.a Redmi K20. This release is meanwhile still a Beta version tho.
His build includes all the awesomeness of the AOSPA (Android Open Source Paranoid Android). Users can expect the following super awesome key features:
- On-the-spot controls
- PA Camera
- Pocket Mode
- Battery styles
- Advanced reboot
- Button Configuration
- Recent app locking
- Substratum support
- Pixel Style Launcher
- Pixel Navbar
- Pie (7.0)
- Color Engine (7.0)
- Immersive mode (7.0)
- Paranoid OTA (7.0)
However, there are some minor drawbacks tho. One of which is the not working Double Tap to Wake (DT2W) feature. Instead, users can enjoy the Single Tap to Wake.
Furthermore, the use of a custom kernel is not currently supported. We may expect more features and enhancements to come since it is a Beta version at the moment.
