Default [ROM][UB][4.4.4] Unofficial Carbon KK [Weekly-12/09]


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.

F.A.Q:
Quote:
Q) Is ART stable to use ?
A)Test it for yourself , it is advisable to switch to ART after fresh install before installing any other Apps to reduce first boot time.

Q) Can i restore my apps with Titanium Backup coming from another Rom ?
A) Yes you can , remember " Don't restore System Apps "

Q ) I have problems with Memory Management (keyboard FCs etc) ?
A ) Install Performance Control App, set minfree values to Very Light. You can play around with these values as they suit you (WARNING: Be careful and always study what you are doing).

Q ) Howto use OTA updates OR OTA updates not working?
A ) Make Sure u have the build from http://builds.hubdroid.com/ installed
1. Check for updates in Settings > About phone > System updates
2. When a new build is released, It will automatically download and verify the new build
3. If it does not work check that no firewall blocking OpenDelta. Disable any firewall
4. Make sure you have space free on your internal sdcard to download the latest build
5. Force Stop and Clear data of OpenDelta app and retry
6. New build will be downloaded and when prompted press Flash Now

Q ) Howto Enable Heads up Notifications ?
A ) Either enable it with a longlick in the notification drawer on the notification, or in Settings->app->App info via a check box. As soon it is enabled for this app every notification from this app will show as heads up, as long as it is not an ongoing notification.
