Potato Open Sauce Project (shortened to POSP) is an Android Custom Firmware developed by the Potato Project Team, aiming at combining newest security patches, original features and wide device support. The team behind the project includes Kshitij Gupta and Nico Franke as the founders with UI/UX designed by Rishi Bafna and Karol Szcześniak.

The project's name is a wordplay on Android Open Source Project. The Custom ROM uses Lawnchair as its default launcher and includes customizations under its 'fries' menu, following the potato inspired theme of the ROM. Other implementations of it's 'Potato' theme can be seen in its naming scheme, with each update being named after a potato based recipe.
