Take Android Oreo based Paranoid Android ROM on OnePlus 3

Those at Paranoid Android must be fans of the OnePlus 3 and their latest project is just a confirmation of what I believed for a long time. To be more precise, they released an early port of Android 8.0 Oreo-based Paranoid Android for the OnePlus 3 and despite of the fact that some of the most popular AOSPA features have to be implemented, it’s almost fully functional and users love it.

You can also enjoy the latest Android Oreo based Paranoid Android ROM on your own OnePlus 3, yet know that the bootloader should be unlocked and you should have the latest version of TWRP installed or else the steps from below cannot be applied.

If such a procedure doesn’t scare you at all, you can download the new ROM via the link below. And accept the fact that a lot of things aren’t functional such as the notification slider, touch gestures, and SELinux; some of them will be available “soon”, so the choice is yours.
