[ROM][Carbon][UNOFFICIAL][JB 4.3.1 final][KINDLE FIRE][WEEKLIES][NOV 15, 2013]
Hey everyone! Let me just start off by saying that I did this just for fun. I had a Sprint galaxy s III running Carbon and I loved it. I wanted to run it on my kindle fire as well so with a little bit of intuitiveness and about an hour, I got carbon running on the kindle fire. By no means is this perfect, and it may have bugs that I don't know about. (Personally, I have to say, it runs really smooth except for the occasional usual lag here and there. If you do find it running slower than usual, try clearing recent apps. It really makes a difference on a device with only 512 MB of RAM) Secondly, let me say that I am NOT an android developer.. so I won't really be able to help fix problems that would require me to actually modify code. Sorry
These builds are straight from carbon source + CM device source for otter (with slight modifications so carbon will build it).
You guys may know me from the other ROMs I unofficially maintain..
These are Carbon builds (Jellybean 4.3.1 at the moment) Enjoy! Carbon continuously adds new features and in all honesty, after using many roms, (on both my kindle and galaxy s3) this has been the best.
On a side note, I definitely recommend speeding up the animations to make the device run more smoothly. (If you set custom animations from carbon fibers, you can directly change the animation duration there. The usual method is to go to developer options, go down to "Window animation scale", "Transition animation scale", and "Animator duration scale". Change the 1x to .25x or a .5x for all three of those options. You will notice a difference, I guarantee it. You can also overclock the processor in settings to 1.2 GHz instead of the default 1.0 GHz.)
Basically all carbon features... there's a lot
(There are a lot more features and features are continously added.. but here's a nice way of looking at it)
I also recommend using the latest version of TWRP recovery.
I will try to upload updated builds whenever I can, hopefully a week at the longest. Even though I labeled this thread "weeklies", you may see builds every few days or even the next day if I can find time to upload them.
DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE. FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK.
ALL CREDIT GOES TO CARBON FOR THE AMAZING ROM, AND CYANOGENMOD FOR THE DEVICE SOURCE.
Couldn't take screenshots for some reason.. so here are some direct camera shots. Sorry for the weird rotation of the images..

[You can also use other gapps (for example,slim gapps or PA gapps..) I'm pretty sure they would work fine. I haven't tested those so I can't say for sure.]
Instructions (same as flashing any other ROM):
If you are coming from a different ROM:
If you are updating from one weekly to another,
- make a backup. (If you want)
- DO A FULL WIPE (data, cache, dalvik cache)
- flash rom.
- flash gapps.
just flash the weekly and wipe cache/dalvik.
Simple Carbon Changelog: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...BwQ/edit?pli=1
(For anyone that's seen this thread already, I removed the commit changelog because it was out of date. If you'd like to see what got merged recently, then go here. http://review.carbon-rom.com/#/q/status:merged,n,z
- Rotation works fine, but is kind of glitchy during the rotation.
- The same bootanimation bug as in pretty much every other rom. (Where it goes off the screen)
(Since this is based straight from carbon sources, pretty much all the changes are the ones in these changelogs, the only exception is the device sources from cm, which aren't changed too often, I can add a link to those changes when they occur if I remember to, at least the important ones
Hit thanks if you guys liked it!
