About the GPe version:
Only for C6806_GPe from Google, do not flash on a normal Z-Ultra
This is untested by me as I don't have access to a GPe Z-Ultra. Use at your own risk

The GPe version has been flashed and booted. Thanks to @CCJ22 for testing this out.

The GPe version of Carbon is built with CM11 device tree so will have any CM11 Togari and Togari_GPe bugs tat come from the device tree

[ROM][4.4.2][Unofficial] Carbon KitKat - Togari GPe [2014-03-11]
@CCJ22, I think I have found the problem with the GPe build. I had missed a line in the config of the build so had pulled in some togari stuff instead of GPe. Should be sorted now. Building a new version now, will upload in the morning

Awesome sounds good. But I'm just now getting around to test. The MMS and calls not working was CM11.

OP, I'm here to report this has (so far) ran flawless on my GPE. I've had it on for about 15 minutes and loving it. Much more so then CM11.

Calls and MMS both work fine on GPE. Video I made coming up shortly. (Although not very well made video)

Question, is carbon rom based off CM11?
Also, can us GPE guys get our own thread by chance in the GPE section of forum? That way we can keep comments seperate? I don't mean to fuss, and not a big deal if it's too much trouble.

**UPDATE** trimming a video with built in gallery trimmer force closes. Not that I ever really use it but FYI

I can split this thread into two... (edit: done:- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2680026)
Good to know that it is running smooth
Carbon is based on ASOP (and other bit and bobs) and I have pulled the device tree in from CM11, as has Liquid and slim will aswell (if I get it to build fully)

Found another problem, music youtube, etc... Make no sound.

I find it interesting that your rom makes the calls and MMS but CM11 doesn't. Ah well. Great ROM

Here is a video showing proof of the rom working.

Disregard the beginning of the video where I mention working with the rom developer. I should have stated, the OP assisted me in getting this rom working on my device and only wanted to return the favor by making a review.
I DID NOT, do any work on the rom itself. All credit to the OP on this great rom.

All credit goes to the team behind the ROM and those that did the bring-up on the CM device tree, all I did was import the device tree into the carbon source and compile it

I'm uploading a build from today to the Downloads tab above, will update the OP when up - about 30 min

Nice little carbon review

By the way bluetooth works good, you can scratch that off your list of things that aren't tested

Do we by chance have a changelog? I see we're on build 3 now (updated last night as you stated)

TIA
