    Henry80 , Oct 7, 2015 :
    I was lurking on XDA and I've stumbled on this Google+ link:
    do you guys know anything more?
    Is it really over for Paranoid Android?
    If so, it's quite a bad news, it was one of my favourites ROMs. :(

    Yeah I know that, it has been like that for months: still, even if OnePlus hired some guys from Paranoid Android months ago to work on OxygenOS, Paranoid Android ROM kept on being updated through the months.
    The latest update was released on the 22nd of August 2015.
    Only few days ago that dev wrote it's officially dead in Google+, I just wanted to share this news and see if someone knew anything more.

    You always have unofficial builds, like Cr3pt's, or vivek_neel's CAF builds.

    It seems the link you posted answered your question. Your best bet, if you want to know more, would be to ask there.

    I see.
    This forum is always so full of surprises that I thought someone (e.g. devs close to the PA team) could elaborate a bit more, plus I wanted to share the news (it seemed quite a big news IMHO).
    But I see your point.

    Let's just hope they'll be able to go on for long without the PA team "behind them" releasing official builds.

    Well, vivek has released a few builds already, with CAF. Don't know about cr3pt though.
    I don't really like it that much. Like, you cant even customize your quick settings. :(

    I see your point mate.
    When it comes to ROMs, I guess it's really about personal preferences: might be a little OT, but for example I could never understand how AOSParadox could gain so much popularity, with D2TW being broken and other bugs here and there (but in any case, I'm always thankful to each and every honest developer out there).
    It's really about personal tastes at the end, ain't it ;)

    This is sad news indeed. I've flashed plenty ROMs since first getting a Samsung Galaxy S and PA has always been my daily driver. 4.4.4 - PA 4.6 is still my goto ROM for the One.

    If that team can genuinly bring some PA sparkle to Oxygen then that might be a ROM to watch (long way off at the moment, tho)

    AOSParadox is terrible lol. The menu button is not even tied to recents. At least RadonX is though.

    I heard rumors about it long before August. Looks like these guys just got jobs elsewhere.:)

    Knowing this, you'd think oxygen would be better.
