Install latest Paranoid Android 8.0 Oreo update for OnePlus 3/3T

Update: The Paranoid Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are now updated with more stable builds with many bug fixes. Paranoid Android has been thorough in releasing their efficient custom built ROMs all this year. Last month the final Nougat build of AOSPA came out. The 7.1.1 Nougat came to an end with promise for Android 8.0 Oreo. As it would happen, currently the Paranoid Android 8.0 for OnePlus 3/3T is rolling with an unofficial build. The catch is that this one is just an initial alpha build. So expect buggy features and glitches but the current build does bring a lot of features that are working just fine.

This also indicates we can expect to get more paranoid with a better stable version based on Android Oreo in coming days. We have provided you with the active download link for the custom ROM later in the download section. There is also a detailed guide to installation for you to follow. Your device Bootloader needs to be unlocked and flashed with latest TWRP before installing custom ROMs.

The developers will soon make the kernel sources openly available. The development team is keeping the device tree private till a stable build of the ROM rolls. The makers have also encouraged the users to report on bugs and technical issues so that it could be taken care of in the coming release of the ROM. Note that this is an Alpha build. Which means, it may not be used as daily driver. It is only for testing purposes for now.
