CarbonRom for bravo unofficial v0.8 (Dev-Host)

md5 655a68ca759ec0da9140753661adc6b1


New in v0.8:
- Welcome to Android 4.4.3 release 1 (KTU84M)
- HOVER (thanks PA)
- PEEk (Moved to CarbonFibers>Lockscreen>General)
- New CM Theme Manager
- Newly designed Torch app (CM)
- Added new 4.4.3 dialer (compatible with Dark Carbon)
- Added a compass quick tile
- Added ability to activate lockscreen torch by long pressing
-- Removed double-tap and long press to avoid conflicts with double-tap statusbar to sleep feature
- and various stability fixes and improvements

Device specific changes:
- ART included: you may want to enable it from Developer Settings -- be careful and first install a2sd (y/n/y)
- Performance improvements:
-- Kernel: set the lowest CPU frequency to 200MHz (should reduce wakeup delays)
-- Kernel: use extended frequency table up to 1.5GHz (now stable and ready to be used in Carbon!)
-- Used Linaro toolchain v4.9 to compile kernel (same GCC as they use in Evervolv nightlies)
-- Used Linaro toolchain v4.8 to compile android
- Nickleby's fix for USB tethering on legacy devices like Bravo
- Fixed FC in MMS/SMS App
- Added telephony/ring tweaks (reduce delays)
- Developer settings: Set 'Animation scale' defaults to 75% / Set 'Force GPU Rendering' per default to enabled

Not working any longer in v0.8:
- Trackball wake
- Initially 'Long press home key' does nothing (you have to go to Settings / Carbon Fibers / Buttons and 'Enable custom actions' -> configure home with 'Recents')
