having issues with this on my Robin. System UI crashes when trying to cast to chromecast. Phone becomes sluggish. Phone call volume both speaker and earpiece, volume doesn't adjust either. First time using PA, is there supposed to be a PA app for extended settings and such? I turned on smart pull down but no way to turn it off. I went to reboot my phone and it then bootlooped. Had to volume - + power and power up again. Still boot looped. Wiped caches in twrp and booted fine. I'm not rooted
So a few apps are not showing up in the "apps with usage access": greenify and screenwise panel. usage access is needed for them to function

Yes i read this earlier. I'm a little bit of a newbie but how to i install once i download the file and unzip it?

@omrichetti you do not unzip any files. Your Robin of course needs to be unlocked and TWRP recovery flashed.
This is taken from the XDA posting
We highly recommend you to follow these instructions very carefully. Users usually tend to skip a few steps and eventually fall in trouble. Are you with me? Good. Let's get this train going.
Just a few things to keep in mind first -
If you're coming from another ROM / Stock, your system data (not internal storage) will have to be wiped. This includes apps, accounts, messages, call logs etc.
There's been some users complaining about different GAPPS variants messing up installs and causing a ton of issues. Upon investigating it seems OpenGapps Mini.Nano and Banks Gapps work best.
Understand that Paranoid Android is a custom ROM and it might lead to addiction as it's relatively good. We shouldn't be accused of anything just incase your cat starts drinking wine. Things get a little woozy in the Paranoid World.
Some brain might be involved if things go wrong. Not a lot though, as much to solve what's 1+1.
Okay let's get to the main bit -
Once you have all the required files - boot into recovery and wipe the bananas out of your device. Get into the wipe menu and wipe data, system, cache and dalvik cache (basically everything except Internal Storage).
Once wiped, get into the "Install from zip" menu and select the ROM zip. (pa_robin_6.x...). Once added to the install queue, TWRP will ask you if you want to add more zips into the queue - Click on "add more zips" and select the GAPPS package.
Swipe the bar on the bottom to flash/install zips. Once both zips are done installing - Reboot into system and set-up your device, do not do anything else.
Once you're done setting up your device - well that's when you're done. One thing though - Make sure you DO NOT INSTALL any other zip in the same queue as the ROM & GAPPS. Meaning, do not flash anything like a kernel or a root package while installing the ROM. We recommend you do that AFTER you're done setting up your device.

Lol thank you, This was very informative. this is definitley new to me and all. I will read over your advice and xda thoroughly and try to follow the instructions step by step. It doesnt seem to be difficult, I've never tried a flash or any of this before. But ive always wanted to experience a custom rom. Looking forward to trying it and hopefully i am successful. How you installed PA on your robin? if so, how does it work and your opinion of it?
