About Carbon

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. and on our Gerrit CarbonDev Gerrit.

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 or ask us in #teamcarbon on freenode IRC.

Support

We spend an astonishing amount of time developing this software. We can't spend much time on XDA as a result, so if you need support, please try the following:

1) Search. Search, search, search. Yes, you. I don't care how unique or important your question is, it's very likely someone has adressed it already. Especially if you're even close to new at this.

2) Read our FAQ, which can be found on our website. Carbon FAQ

3) Ask a question in your device forum. Someone will no doubt try to help you. Warning: this help may come in the form of telling you it's a dumb question that has been asked before. See step 1 - such are the perils of asking questions when you haven't done the research yourself. Android is about helping yourself.

4) Ask a question on our IRC channel. Connect to #teamcarbon on irc.freenode.net or click here. You'll find several other Carbon fans and usually one or more devs as well. Please be polite.

Remember, every penny you send to us goes right back into the rom. It's used for hardware, server costs, etc - all the things that help us make Carbon better with every release. Your support means the world to us! If you've enjoyed Carbon, please consider a donation toward this goal. Thank you, and we hope you continue to enjoy Carbon!

Hey folks.

None of this would have been possible without the hard work of @crpalmer - he got the device started on CM, and did 99.999% of the hard work for this device bringup!!

I have done some basic tests - it boots!

The stock keyboard seems to be missing a lot - I'm sure installing an alternative will solve that issue. I'm also getting a lot of FC's from Google Keyboard.

CarbonFibers is not happy, going to look into that.

Should be on par with CM. Let me know what you find!

Well I suppose if you are comparing to stock, yes, it does "remove" multi-window...

Just remember, this ROM is not based (loosely or otherwise) on any Samsung ROM. It's built from source AOSP base with patches from all over the place.

Makes me wonder where Omni left off with their multi-window. I haven't been following it lately.

Yeah I assumed it did, I wish I could run a nice feature rich rom but I use multi window probably 80% of my time on this tablet. I almost always have YouTube on one half and chrome the other like right now haha. Wish there was a way to keep it or an alternative but thanks anyways.

Luckily my nexus 5 feeds my rom itch nicely. For now I'll just stay with CleanROM.

Dear @arrrghhh I am not a developer, but I have a little guess as to what might be causing the FC's on the google keyboard. The keyboard learns the user style and way of writing (if you see the T it has many settings that are probably intefering with the absence on Knox.

I'm excited about Carbon for this device, but seeing that there's been no activity in the thread for over a week has me wondering if something is wrong with it. I'm using cm 11 right now and it's very stable if lacking in features.
