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

  • Custom busybox built for Team BAMF
  • SuperSU and su binary from Chainfire (for compatibility)
  • Signed with private developer keys for increased security

  • Completely configurable QuickSettings Tiles replacing stock QuickTiles

    • 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

Some of the members over at the official TeamBAMF forums are thinking this ROM might drop within the week. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, but it's an exciting prospect! This picture was also posted.
I don't recall whether radios are included with Paradigm, but the 4.2.2 ones can be found at this thread. I've been using them for a few hours now, and I haven't run into any issues. I didn't do a speedtest before flashing though, so I don't have a basis for comparison on that front.
Radio's are not included with ROMs

Thanks for clarifying.
Two finger pull on the status bar opens quick settings.
I just discovered this gesture, as well as the quick tile easter egg you guys included. That's a damn cool feature which adds a little flair to the ROM. Loving it!
I have been running the new BAMF version since it came but I have recently started having issues. Recently it's been getting slower and more problematic is that this week my voice over calls has been almost impossible to understand. I have tried using the phone with or to my ear and have used headphones with an inline mic. No difference in sound quality. I don't think that Ir's my phone because I soothed to CM today and now things are running as they should.

Anyone else having any of these issues?
Paradigm is still going strong for me. I haven't a clue what would cause your speaker quality to degrade like that aside from faulty hardware, but if switching to another firmware seemed to fix it then maybe it's related to the kernel? Leankernel hasn't given me any issues with 3.1.
I obviously can't speak for the developers, but Eris mentioned in a post on their official site that he hasn't had much time lately for Android development. Perhaps the team will merge the changes from 4.3 (when it's released) into Paradigm, but aside from that it runs great on my G-Nex.
