Last week gave us a couple great opportunities to learn about the latest feature coming to the Paranoid Android custom ROM project, the remixed take on Facebook Chat Heads we came to know as Halo. We got to check out some videos of the feature in action, but were really looking forward to the chance to try it out for ourselves. Well, while you were busy enjoying the lovely spring weather this weekend, Halo quietly decided to show its face, and the first ROMs implementing the feature are now available.

Paranoid Android ROMs implementing Halo are now available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Galaxy Nexus. To get started, hit up one of the download links below and pull the latest build. After flashing, you’ll still need to outfit the phone with Google’s apps suite, separately available for download.

Keep in mind that this is very early code (hence the Nexus 4 download in the “alpha” directory) and it could still be a little rough around the edges. Still, if you’re a veteran custom ROM user you won’t let a little thing like that stop you, so hit up the links below and get started giving Halo a spin. Let us know once you’ve had a chance to play with it, and tell us if you think it lives up to the hype.
