Latest kernel + latest CM11 nightlies
After a week or two of using the latest CarbonROM + the latest Bl4CKB1RD kernel (quite happily I may add), I decided just for fun to give the latest official CM11 nightlies a whirl. Everything was fine until I tried loading up the latest B14CKB1RD. Then - after a super-long boot sequence, I was greeted by a black screen, no mattter what I did (the capacitive keys would light up when I pressed the Home button, though). I also tried some of the older versions of the kernel, same deal. So clearly they did something in the latest nightlies that gets broken when you use this kernel, which is a shame. FWIW it worked just fine with the nightly from 05/26.
Anyway, back to CarbonROM + the B14KB1RD -- I like the active notifications & the Dark theme a la DarkSlim in that ROM better anyway...
