Default [ROM] [UNOFFICIAL] [LINARO 4.8.3] [4.4.4] [APP2SD] Carbon ROM [Update 20140817]



CarbonRom is an aftermarket firmware based on the Android Open Source Project. We are dedicated to fast, stable, and feature-filled roms, honesty and communication with our users, and openness with our code. We like frequent builds, with the very latest and greatest hardware support and fixes. We strive to not only provide you with the best rom we can build, but also to give back to the Android community and our fellow developers. For us, this is about creating something we can be proud of and hope you will enjoy.

Please feel free to look at, build, and use our code on CarbonDev GitHub.

Follow Carbon ROM's Gerrit and Carbon ROM's Changelog to keep yourself updated with feature additions.

We would like to thank CyanogenMod for their device trees, framework/settings mods and their code that was incorporated into this project. We also extend our gratitude to the devs whose code that we have incorporated. Proper authorship has been maintained and can be viewed on our repository.

Special thanks also go to Slim Rom for some of their features, PA, AOKP, and anyone else we may have borrowed commits from that hasn't been mentioned here. If you feel you have been unfairly left out, please - let us know.

While we make every effort to test these builds as much as possible, we are not responsible for anything that may happen to your device, family, pets, or perception of reality. We ask that you do your part to know your device and know how to recover from problems before you flash! If you have questions, ask your fellow users.




WHAT IS WORKING?
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • RIL (Calls, Mobile Data, SMS)
  • Sensors
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Everything else not listed under "Known Issues" section




KNOWN ISSUES
  • Inbuilt screen video recorder doesn't work.
  • Only primary SIM slot works. There won't be any dual-SIM support from me. I have tried and I wasn't able to make it work successfully. If anyone else wants to contribute, ROM as well as patches are open source. Build with dual-SIM support and share with the community.

(Bugs reported by users will be updated here after they are confirmed. I may ask for a logcat to fix the bugs.)





NOTES

- Make sure you have backed up your EFS before flashing the ROM. Link in installation instructions.

- If you are not able to connect to your service network provider and can't make calls etc, try flashing the modem from your region specific firmware through ODIN. Search the threads in Galaxy Grand forums and you'll find instructions there.
