If you’re a fan of custom Android ROMs, then you are most likely familiar with Paranoid Android, one of the best ones out there. For those of you that are new to this world, let us explain. Think of custom ROMs as jailbreaking for your Android device, but safer. Just like jailbreaks customize and add that extra touch to iOS devices, so do custom ROMs on Android. But custom ROMs are also infinitely better, and not only because they are safer, but because they open up an entire world of possibilities for your Android device.
When Paranoid Android 7.2.0 came out, the ROM’s users thought it couldn’t get better than this. The update added a lot of new supported devices to the ROM’s ever-growing list, as well as brought along new features and enhancements. But now a new update is in town, and although it’s not as impressive, it still brings yet another round of new elements to the table. Let’s find out more about it, shall we?
About Version 7.2.1
As previously noted, the Paranoid Android update to version 7.2.1 isn’t as massive or impressive as the previous one for version 7.2.0, but it still added support for a few more devices. Here they are, in no particular order:
• suzu for Sony Xperia X
• kugo for Sony Xperia X Compact
• and hammerhead for the Nexus 5
By far the most exciting addition to this list is the Nexus 5. The Nexus 5 is an outdated phone that is most fondly remembered for its amazing compatibility with custom Android ROMs. So if you still have your Nexus 5 around somewhere, now it’s time to bring it back to life with Paranoid Android. You will be amazed of what possibilities this opens for you and your phone alike.
