The first Release Candidate (RC) of ParanoidAndroid 3.0 is out. The team behind the popular custom ROM are now rolling out the newer version of Paranoid ROM to selected devices. Nexus 4 (Mako) and Galaxy Nexus GSM (Maguro) are the first of the eligible devices. More devices, including Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300, will follow soon of course. Based on AOSP 4.2.1, the PA 3.0 ROM brings lots of new features and enhancements in the newer version.

Tons of optimizations under the hood
While these features certainly look cool, one of the big omissions is the battery percentage in Parandoid Android ROM. The Team have promised to make Battery% available in next version of the ROM.
