CarbonRom is an aftermarket firmware based on the Android Open Source Project.
Click the logo to visit the official site and Features

After trying a number of custom ROMs, I decided to bring up the CarbonROM again. Almost everything is working now. The essential feaures and the CarbonFibers are also implemented. You might not like the navigation bar's arrangement but there is the "System UI tuner" to customize the look. The official features page is old and there are still more for us to explore.
It's for now the best N for my daily use. I had built Carbon before and it's good to be Carbonized again. Cheers

Dear daniel_hk, I just tried to install it and the first thing I discovered is, I cannot turn on USB modem. Do you know of any other ROM for Tilapia (maybe even preferably Marshmallow) which permits to do it? Or maybe you will fix it in this one at some moment?

I assume you meant the USB modem which connect to a land line. If not, that means I don't think I may help.
First of all, you need a kernel that support your modem's chip. That is the (Linux) driver of the particular modem you have. All available kernels for our N7 are derived from the one Google released. It might be included as a standard Linux driver in the source but I don't recall anything like that. I can't see anything to "fix".
Since you have your USB modem in hand, only you know what you have. You may try to port it yourself and share.

Here is the development forum which is for those have some experience. I think you're new to these. You would know if you have some experience. It is irresponsible just giving you the link. You might soft brick your device if you don't do it right.
If you are really sure and confidence, you may get the latest SuperSU under the superSU threads here in xda-developers.com.
You better do your homework and read first. There is no free lunch, rush for results won't necessarily speed up the process. Asking for link is a kind of laziness. If you brick it, how many blames to the others won't help.
Good luck.

Dear daniel_hk, thanks very much for the fast reply! No, I actually mean the USB tethering, the thing in the same menu as Wi-Fi hotspot. The latter seems to be working, at least it does get turned on. And the USB tethering does not. So is there any way to get around it? Actually I would more willingly use the Slim6 ROM but I encountered the same problem there...

OK, got it now. I'll take a look later.

Misunderstanding could easily lead to a heated argument. I'd been called names because I didn't know "Menu" refer to App drawer. Sometimes I'm just too stupid to know what the question mean. A little bit more explanation or just a screenshot with captions might clear things up...

Edit: @DonSanches I just checked, USB tethering was never implemented in AOSP for Tilapia. I don't know if any existing ROM had implemented it. I just tried and managed to make it work. I'll include it and Bluetooth tethering (haven't tested yet) to the later builds (including Slim6 and others). Cheers!

This is for sure. I usually update all the branches at the same time.

OMG, this is so cool to know! If you knew how much time I wasted in fruitless searches! Thank you for resolving the mystery for me (I actually started to suspect something like that). Looking forward to that update!
