The carbon rom kept crashing because you didn't wipe everything prior to it's installation. Did you wipe data, clear dalvic, format system and then flash the carbon rom and gapps??

Since you said the rom kept crashing, I thought you referred to the Android system fcs. Changing the keyboard might have solved it...

About the carbon settings apk... If the carbon settings in integrated to rom, then it won't work on any other roms even if you manage to find its apk and install it.

It's integrated within Settings.apk and in the framework itself. "Carbon Fibers" is just the menu in which you toggle/customize your options. Each ROM has it's own "customizations".

Carbon is mostly "stable"; nightly builds but most are daily-driver capable. You probably forgot to wipe or something. I have never experienced instability with the official ROM, only some in my own personal build when experimenting with things.

Just revert back to Carbon, and if your keyboard keeps crashing again, just download Google Keyboard from the play store.Simple as that. I had this issue myself, but upgrading to the next nightly fixed it.
