Disclaimer:

Freshly compiled/synced from CarbonRom open-source code:
https://github.com/CarbonDev/
When its necessary, it can be cherry-picked a commit and integrate it on the build
sabermod arm-linux-androideabi-4.9.0 201307, and linaro arm-eabi-4.7.4 201310 toolchains used to cross-compile.
If you have any doubt or question, post it in the main thread, so we can help out.
You can check Official i9100 CarbonRom thread for support also, since the source code is the same.

Special Thanks

FAQ and Tutorial

What is the difference between these builds and the official builds?

These are unofficial builds of CarbonRom (Android 4.3) for the i9100.
ROM is built using the same source code (github) like the official one but with these following additions:
  • Compiled using linaro arm-eabi 4.7.4 13.10 (kernel code) & sabermod arm-linux-androideabi 4.9.0 13.07 (rom code) toolchain compilers
  • May contain some custom cherry-picks. Always see changelog for details.
  • Cross-compiled using those custom toolchains results in a more smoother, faster, and battery friendly ROM

What is Toolchain?

Quote:

In software, a toolchain is the set of programming tools that are used to create a product (typically another computer program or system of programs). The tools may be used in a chain, so that the output of each tool becomes the input for the next, but the term is used widely to refer to any set of linked development tools.
A simple software development toolchain consists of a compiler and linker to transform the source code into an executable program, libraries to provide interfaces to the operating system, and a debugger. A complex product such as a video game needs tools for preparing sound effects, music, textures, 3-dimensional models, and animations, and further tools for combining these resources into the finished product.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toolchain

What is SaberMod?

The term "SaberMod" is coming from:

Quote:

SaberMod is a AOSP based ROM with some extra features added in and mostly from CyanogenMod. SaberMod started out pure AOSP when android 4.2.1 launched. Originally it was pure AOSP with a few extra features I ported over from CyanogeMod and linaro optimizations. Then I rebased everything off of rasbeanjelly because I liked many features found in rasbean. Since then I've modified a lot of the code so not much of it is rasbeanjelly based anymore. But you will still find some commonly used features found in rasbeanjelly. SaberMod is not a rasbeanjelly or CM clone, or KANG. Custom kernels are included for certain devices when available. These are personal builds we make for ourselves and originally became very popular in the nexus 7 forums. Features are very rarely added, and are built to SaberMod's team members liking. Currently there are two members of SaberMod working on this project. Myself and @jarjar124 . Please understand our time is limited and we are only two people who have lives, and do not have 25-50 members like CyanogenMod to add things. And our goal is not to add a bunch of features that bloat the system of the ROM.

What is Linaro?

Quote:

Linaro is the place where engineers from the world's leading technology companies define the future of Linux on ARM. The company is a not-for-profit engineering organization with over 120 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including the GCC toolchain, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, graphics and multimedia interfaces.

About GCC main compiler cflags
Quote:

-O1
Optimize. Optimizing compilation takes somewhat more time, and a lot more memory for a large function. With -O, the compiler tries to reduce code size and execution time, without performing any optimizations that take a great deal of compilation time.

-O2
Optimize even more. GCC performs nearly all supported optimizations that do not involve a space-speed tradeoff. As compared to -O, this option increases both compilation time and the performance of the generated code. -O2 turns on all optimization flags specified by -O.

-O3
Optimize yet more. -O3 turns on all optimizations specified by -O2 and also turns on the -finline-functions, -funswitch-loops, -fpredictive-commoning, -fgcse-after-reload, -ftree-loop-vectorize, -ftree-slp-vectorize, -fvect-cost-model, -ftree-partial-pre and -fipa-cp-clone options.

-Os
Optimize for size. -Os enables all -O2 optimizations that do not typically increase code size. It also performs further optimizations designed to reduce code size.



Q: I love Carbon but I don’t type in English. How can I change my default keyboard language to <insert your language here>?
A: The stock android keyboard in Carbon comes with the ability to download a variety of language packs. To change it go to Settings>Language & input>Android keyboard (AOSP) settings button>Input languages. Uncheck “use system language” and select the language that you would like to use.
—————————————————————————————————————————–
Q: I see you make something called “Nightly Builds”. What are those?
A: Nightly Builds are experimental builds that are released each night with the latest features, and bug fixes, which keeps you up to date but may also be dysfunctional due to the adding a new features and code.
—————————————————————————————————————————–
Q: How do I switch from my current ROM over to Carbon?
A: (These directions are assuming you are already rooted and have installed a recovery manager, preferably CWM Recovery)

(1.) Decide whether you would like to use the stable release version of Carbon, or whether to use the nightly version of Carbon
(2.) Once you have decided, download the correct file of Carbon for your specific device using the goo app on your phone or from the goo website (make sure you know your device’s codename)
(3.) Download the corresponding GApps file using goo app on your phone or from the goo website (20130813)
(4.) Make sure you know where both files are on your phone’s sd card and then reboot to recovery
(5.) MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP of your current ROM so you have something to go back to in case anything goes wrong
(6.) If you are switching to Carbon from another ROM, you must do a full wipe before flashing Carbon, please follow these steps to wipe: Factory reset, wipe system partition, wipe cache and dalvik once more.
(7.) Now once everything is wiped, flash the Carbon zip you downloaded and then IMMEDIATELY after flash your GApps zip.
(8.)(Optional) If you have a custom kernel you would like to flash, flash it now.
(9.) Reboot your device and allow it a few minutes to startup, it may take some time on first boot.
(10.) You’re all done. Enjoy using Carbon!
—————————————————————————————————————————–
Q: What is “dirty” flashing?
A: Dirty flashing is when you do not wipe any of your data or the system partition before flashing a newer version of Carbon.
—————————————————————————————————————————–
Q: I am using the stable version of Carbon, can I switch over to the nightly builds (and vice versa) without clean wiping?
A: If you are already running Carbon you can switch over to any version of Carbon by dirty flashing (unless directly stated that a wipe is required in the changelog).
—————————————————————————————————————————–
Q: If I am already running Carbon, do I have to reflash GApps every time I dirty flash the newest updates?
A: No, Carbon has a built in script that backs up the system partition and will reapply your GApps automatically when you flash the newer version of Carbon.
—————————————————————————————————————————–
Q:How do I update my version of Carbon?
A: If you are already running Carbon and would like to update to the latest version, you can simply dirty flash the newest version on top of your current setup (unless otherwise stated in the changelog).

Great work, infected_.

I'm sure this will be a masterpiece, Carbon rom allied with Linaro/sabermod and optimizations...it can't be better.

But you should add a change log...just an idea...

Cheers

Just tried this out and am surprised with the amount of deepsleep I got. I think it was 3% in 6 hours.

Good job! I might stick around on this ROM. So far, so good.

Just waiting for a better implementation of AD by ChameleonTeam.


EDIT: found a bug: Clear Recents button does not stick if you open Recent Apps with No Apps in it.
1. Enable Clear Recents button in any corner
2. Open Recent Apps switcher and clear list
3. Open Recent Apps switcher again (there should be no apps in it)
4. Close, then open an app again
5. Try to open the recent apps switcher again, the clear recents button should be gone.

It does not seem to happen all the time, though. O.o

All the above okay for me . tried three times. Did you come from another ROM?

Clean or dirty? I came from official carbon and dirty flash
