The Paranoid Android (PA) team is working round the clock to develop new and stable builds for the various Android devices in the market. They even plan to release the Paranoid Android 4.0 version before Google releases the Android 4.4 Kitkat version. They aim to release a stable build along with few changes to the Hybrid Engine and the Pie. However, their’s being a small team may lead to a delayed release and also considering the fact that Google hasn’t announced a release date for Android 4.4 KitKat yet.
