1. Is CarbonROM based on CM or do they pull some things from CM? I know Carbon has a changelog, but should I also follow CM's changelog for changes in CarbonROM?
2. I mostly dirty flash, but would like to clean flash more often if there's an easier way. Right now I factory reset, flash Carbon, GApps and kernel. Then Titanium from Play Store (and stop auto downloading) to restore apps so that I'm not downloading a couple GBs from the Play Store every time. Is there a better way? I'm using TWRP 184.108.40.206 if that helps.
