If you appreciate my work and would like to support me with a small donation you can click on button.
If every happy user of this rom would just donate something I could invest more time in all these Android projects.

Issues

* Who knows... This build has been compiled using GCC 4.7 and includes "heavy" optimizations (O3, Linaro's strings, NEON memcpy and Linaro's graphite)

Instructions (first installation)

* Grab TWRP recovery from this thread, unzip it and put uImage_recovery in the root of the external MicroSD card.
* Put rom (pa_elf2-3.x-$DATE-$TIME.zip) and gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed-ubifs.zip) files inside internal or external sdcard.
* Turn on the tablet keeping pressed VOL- and POWER untill you see the green droid.
* Flash this file that will format /system, /data and /cache partitions, and from "Wipe" menu erase "Android secure".
* If you wanna wipe internal memory content you can flash this file.
* NEVER flash this two "wiping" zips file posted above if you're using an EXT4 partitioned device, in this case just do a "Factory reset" from TWRP.
* Flash rom (pa_elf2-3.x-$DATE-$TIME.zip), gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed-ubifs.zip) and, the required compatibility zip (and the eventual "MultiUser zip" if you're using a "MU" comp zip).
* Now select "Reboot system".
* Enjoy ParanoidAndroid!

Instructions (upgrades)

* Take a backup of Paranoid preferences from "Settings" -> "Hybrid properties" -> "Tools" -> "Backup preferences".
* Turn off the tablet and turn it on keeping pressed VOL- and POWER untill you see the green droid.
* Flash rom (pa_elf2-3.x-$DATE-$TIME.zip), gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed-ubifs.zip) and, the required compatibility zip (and the eventual "MultiUser zip" if you're using a "MU" comp zip).
* Now select "Reboot system".
* After the upgrade restore Paranoid preferences from "Settings" -> "Hybrid properties" -> "Tools" -> "Restore preferences" and confirm the reboot question.
* Enjoy your freshly updated ParanoidAndroid!

FAQs

* If you wanna use a USB bluetooth device flash this zip after each rom update (flash it after the comp zip, practically as last file). It supports only CSR devices, they can be identified typing "lsusb" from an app like "terminal emulator": the supported device will be present with an entry like "Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001" ("0a12:0001" is the supported VID:pID). Do not boot with the bluetooth plugged in; plug it once you booted to android.
* If you don't like Nexus 7 fingerprint and wanna use SGS-II instead flash this zip. Remember that changing fingerprint may screw Play Store, if it happens you'll have to perform a "wipe data / factory reset".
* WiFi now can stay enabled with display turned off. Note that if WiFi is enabled the tablet won't enter deep sleep so if you're more interestead in battery life instead of an always on WiFi change policy (on "Advanced" WiFi settings) from "Always" to "Never".
* Internal memory is mounted at /storage/sdcard0, external sdcard is mounted at /storage/sdcard1. If you wanna swap them (and make primary your real microsd) just flash this file after flashing rom's zip (you have to do it everytime you flash a new version of the rom and it is incompatible with multi user)
* If you wanna format your internal memory (it's corrupted, filled of crap, etc.) just flash this file from CWM / TWRP.
* It's better if you don't change governor because the included "ondemand" has been customized to support "boostpulse" feature of jelly bean power hal. You can control min/max cpu frequency with display on/off editing these entries in /system/build.prop file (they're listed with their default value): "ro.sys.min_cpu_on=408000", "ro.sys.max_cpu_on=1200000", "ro.sys.min_cpu_off=96000", "ro.sys.max_cpu_off=1008000".

*** If you're having problems with some videos flash this zip (I'm doing some tests with newer video libraries, but seems no too stable right now) ***

* Updated comp zip for Elf, Aurora, Crystal, C93 (non MultiUser): now all devices are using the new audio HAL based on tinyalsa
* Updated upstream sources

*** If you're having problems with some videos flash this zip (I'm doing some tests with newer video libraries, but seems no too stable right now) ***

* Update some RIL related stuff: if your 3G dongle was working try it again and report. If it wasn't working (but worked on the stock rom) give it another try, just in case...
* Added EXT4/MultiUser for 1st/2nd batch Crystal (it looks like some 1st batch refuse to turn on WiFi, I can't help you without proper source code and some logs)
* New MultiUser comp zip for Aurora / Elf that will probably fix the upside down camera portrait picture. 3rd batch Crystal user fetch the new comp zip and try it as well, maybe it will work on yours as well.

* Support for both EXT4/UBIFS partitions (only Fire running stock 4.2 is using EXT4 right now)
* Added a SCREEN_DIM wakelock when HDMI is plugged
* Devices running alsa (everyone but Hero and Fire) can disable alsa standby by editing "snd.card.alsa.standby=1" to "snd.card.alsa.standby=0". This will fix latest Skype (and possibly other chat apps) issues, but may lead to some "pops" when the device enter/exit suspend.
* Fixed Netflix (and possibly other streaming apps) issues
* Added stock video player (but it doesn't work when connected to an HDMI monitor)
* Updated upstream sources

Compatibility zip

Fire with BMA G sensor (based on Feiyu JB, flash that rom before this one to fix partitions)
TM 1.2
QM 1.2

Fire with MMA G sensor (based on december stock, flash that rom before this one to fix partitions)
TM 1.1
QM 1.1
On Fire with MMA gsensor, if i use comp zip TM 1.1 does it's mean the battery problems will still there? So i have to use comp zip TM 1.2 and remove sensors.amlogic.so to fix the battery problem, just like on cm 10.1, am i right? Btw, thanks again CT.

Edit: using comp zip tm 1.2 and remove sensors.amlogic.so. Just like on cm 10.1. Solved battery bug but without light and g sensor. It's ok.

There is no long-press item (shortcut in every key, what are they named?) on the keyboard and I can't find Volume key cursor control, so i replace the latinime with the one from cm 10.1. The long-press item then exist but still i can't find Volume key cursor control.

Oh Great work CT! Salute!

A little query, I have Fire which came with September build so which sensor should I have MMA or BMA????
Check SN on the bottom of the back cover, if you have xxx201212xxx then you have MMA, other than that SN have BMA.

It took me quite some time since PA team doesn't support MDPI devices (and I had to create the whole config from scratch) but here you'll find the first comp zips for MDPI devices (the other will follow soon but I won't be able to test them because I don't have such devices)

Aurora-II 1.0
Elf-II 1.0

Um, what happened to the old.androidfilehost.com links? Is the fire QM 1.2 compat on mediafire identical to the one that used to be over there? *confused*

And, is the humble question allowed why "gps.enable=false" while "hw.nophone=false"?

steve, no it's different.

those build.prop entries are irrelevant, it's some crap from amlogic stock firmware, they don't do anything on this rom

Thanks for clarifying. I'll try to connect a BT GPS mouse this weekend (which worked with Flambe *after* setting gps.enable=true). Got to get back into geocaching as the weather becomes more comfortable.

You may need to install a third party app to be able to use it

On Hero dont work.
For all the others, a report like this is useless. You have to explain carefully the 'symptoms' and possibly adding a logcat

BTW on the hero since it's based on stock 1219 you must flash that ROM before this and use the appropriate twrp recovery
