Nothing CEO Carl Pei took to Twitter(opens in new tab) to announce that the third-party ROM is coming to the phone (1). Paranoid Android is a popular open-source custom ROM, which is essentially an operating system that allows users to customize their phones beyond what’s normally available on Android.

The Nothing phone (1) could experience more buzz if it receives a modified ROM from Paranoid Android. Twitter was used by Nothing and Paranoid Android to advertise the new ROM support. Users may have complete control over their device with the use of a customised third-party ROM. There is currently no specified date for when owners of the Nothing phone (1) will be able to access this new support. Everyone has been attempting to obtain a Nothing phone (1). It appears that the phone will soon support the Paranoid Android ROM now that it has been released.
9to5Google(opens in new tab) notes that this news has come just after Nothing placed its kernel source code and device tree on Github(opens in new tab). With this information available to the public, third parties could begin crafting their own OS for the phone. They go on to explain that the Nothing OS is “almost identical” to the current build of Android you’d find on a Pixel 6 Pro(opens in new tab) with some minor tweaks to make it different. It’s also worth noting that a good portion of the current Paranoid Android team worked on OnePlus to create OxygenOS.
The Nothing phone (1) saw such strong hype, despite being a slightly-above-average average Android smartphone (with some lights). What’s come of the new phone gaining partnership with Paranoid Android could make it much more appealing for fans of custom ROMs. There are already plenty of phones that are perfect for rooting and modding, and with Carl Pei at the helm, Nothing’s new phone may soon be among them.
Paranoid Android has also recently seen increased support from some of the best Android phones. That said, there is currently no date set for when people who enjoy messing with the inner workings of their phone can see Paranoid Android ready for the Nothing phone (1).
