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.

This ROM is built from source using
Carbon's git
CM's git
My changes to CM's tree etc
CM's kernel with changes for ZU

Screenshots:
Install:
Be running at least Android 4.4.2 or 4.4.4 with an unlocked BL
  1. Copy ROM zip to internal SD
  2. Install recovery if not on a compatable CWM/TWRP
    1. Extract boot.img from this ROM's zip
    2. Boot into fastboot:
      1. Power off phone
      2. Connect to PC while holding vol. up key - LED will turn blue
    3. Flash boot.img with "fastboot flash boot boot.img"
  3. Boot into recovery:
    1. Reboot phone
    2. When LED flashes when first boot logo is up press the vol. + key
  4. Backup current ROM
  5. Factory reset/wipe data
  6. Flash ROM zip
  7. Wipe caches
Install GAPPS as wanted from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2397942


Working:
Looks like most everything works well
Camera glitches:
Camera fix / workaround "Another Camera Fix (It's really a workaround) to try > Post #23"
This should be no longer needed as CM has included this in their base
Builds 31 to 35 suffer from bluethooth issues. If bluetooth is important stay on build 30 for now

Carbon Togari (2014-05-15) - Direct XDA Download
Install
As the build of 11/05 had a broken recovery the install instructions above may not work, depending on whether you have flashed a different boot.img to the one in the zip.

If you have already flash a different kernel/recovery over build 11 (11th may) then you don't need to follow the instructions below
  1. Download the new build (#12) and copy to the ZU
  2. Open the D/Ld ROM on a PC and extract the boot.img file from the zip and save
  3. Power off the ZU and connect to the PC while holding the Vol. Up Key to enter fastboot
  4. Open flashtool (or use adb/fastboot) and flash the boot.img, should take about 2 sec
  5. Reboot into recovery
  6. Flash ROM as normal, Wipe as you see fit.

Sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused

Build 13 [2014-05-14]:
removed as unneeded

removed as unstable
Build 11 [2014-05-11]:

Recovery doesn't seem to work in this build
Download any of these kernels: DT2W_CM11_build-9.zip or CM11-Kernel_Carbon-default_build-9.zip from the download tab above or PimpedKernel and flash immediately after flashing the ROM (don't reboot between flashes) to have a working recovery

Kernels
Different kernels for different users:
Carbon DT2W 4.4.4: [07-07-2014] This is a kernel that has @reaper61616's Double Tap to Wake incorporated into it. It may work better without two screen protectors on (after-market and ASF), please post your thoughts on how well it works.Please thank reaper in his thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2692552

DT2W is enabled by default:
Code:
Disable DT2W:
In terminal write: su -c "echo 0 > /sys/android_dt2w/dt2w_active"

After reboot DT2W will be activated again. If you want to make it disabled by default add the above init.d script!
GPL'd source: https://github.com/BlueEther/android...8974/tree/dt2w

CM 11 kernel - no dt2w
http://forum.xda-developers.com/devd...ct/dl/?id=7253

Pimped Kernel: This kernel is a port of the Z1's Pimped Kernel and has many features including CPU/GPU OC/UC, hundruds of governors etc and is built with many optimisations http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2730353

Slim Kernel: This kernel has been built by @dbolivar and uses the Linaro toolchain, SlimKats kernel, and optimisations (-O2, -mcpu, -mtune etc.). Please See his thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2698146

Default CM11 - From build 15: [31-05-2014] This kernel my fork of CM11's main branch and is the one that is normally in the full Carbon kk zip. With DT2W.


GPe version:
There is now a seperate section for the GPe version of this rom. This can be found at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=51046259

any graphics glitches, like the Sony boot logo flashing up? I'm wonder if some of the issues I had were from the dirty flash. I'll re-flash when my phone is recharged and do some testing.

no Sony boot logo. It happens when having too many (possibly duplicate) xposed modules activated (noticed that on liquid too) but that is a separate issue (and i should not have the modules set up that way anyway)
