Team BAMF Proudly Presents...

Paradigm represents the culmination of months years of work to bring our users the best possible AOSP experience.

Using all of our previous experience with a multitude of devices and user interfaces, we aim to bring you something you just can't get anywhere else.
Are you ready for the shift?

When we set out to build this ROM, we wanted to keep the feel as stock as possible while adding as much functionality as possible.
The primary concern was always stability and user experience.

What to Expect:
  • Android 4.2.2 internals
  • Quick, lag-free performance
  • Rock-solid stability
  • Many original features
  • Bug-free (we hope) android experience
  • Outstanding developer support
What you won't find:
  • Useless tweaks, mods, and bloat
  • Over the top themeing
  • A coffee maker

Under the Hood:
  • AOSP 4.2.2 base
  • 4.2.2 Proprietary blobs
  • Custom busybox built for Team BAMF
  • SuperSU and su binary from Chainfire (for compatibility)
  • Signed with private developer keys for increased security
BAMF Add-ons:
  • Custom boot animation (thanks to gadget! for the logo)
  • T9 dialer courtesy of CyanogenMod with optional settings in dialer
  • BAMF LTE Widget
  • BAMF Torch Widget
  • Configurable Lockscreen with unlimited* shortcuts, and pull down for Torch
  • Completely configurable QuickSettings Tiles replacing stock QuickTiles
  • Copy/Paste from any app
  • BAMF Settings (huge thanks to Stericson for the RootTools SDK which we incorporated for root functionality)
BAMF Settings Features:
  • Performance Settings (Based on CyanogenMod CPU Settings)
    • CPU Speeds
    • Governor
    • I/O Scheduler
    • Voltages (where supported)
  • System Settings

    • Remounting of System Partition
    • Volume Key Track Skip
    • Granular Autobrightness adjustment

    • Normal, Centered, or Hidden Status Bar Clock
    • Clock Text Color
    • Show or Hide Alarm notification
    • Show or Hide Debugging Indicator
    • Battery Skin System (Some sample skins are available in the 2nd post and a tutorial for making your own is available in the "Themes" section)
    • Signal Skin System
    • Fully customizable battery text including size, color, and visibility
    • Customizable carrier banner
    • Select and arrange Quick Settings Tiles
  • Navbar Tweaks
    • Fully customizable Navigation Keys

Been running this since last night, been working great. Battery life has been good today. Just installed a theme via theme chooser. Tuned off Lte while I was out and about this morning. Very well done ROM. Thanks to all the guys at Bamf!!!
Maybe because I'm using Nova launcher?

I'm using Nova as well and do not get the menu when long pressing recents either.

Nova all of sudden turned evil and started overriding things normally done by the system. Not sure why he decided to start doing this.

Thanks for checking into the Nova issues. I went ahead and went back to Apex. Problem solved .
Thanks again. This ROM has been really great today.

This is a great ROM. I'm surprised more people haven't jumped on board.
The lte toggle alone makes it worth it to me. The extras are like the icing on the cake.
Great job by the Bamf group!!

For the people that are having Gps lock issues, I have a flashable Gps Config file that I happened upon a few days ago, not sure if it was here or over at Xda, it's been passed around so I really don't know who the original contributor is to give credit to, but it works.
I've used it on a few other JB roms besides Paradigm.
I just took this screen shot a few minutes ago. This was in my house, and took roughly a minute to achieve lock...

This was not with any reboots or no tricks, my phone has been on all day, came off the charger about two hours ago.
Flash this in recovery and you should have your Gps troubles taken care of.

The center clock mod is already in the ROM.
Bamf settings/visual/icon preferences (page 2 of 3)/status bar clock, click on that, and you will find the center clock setting.
