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.

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.

Simply stated, we can't really list features here. There are too many and they change too frequently, and we now support a truly insane number of devices. Chances are, if you like a feature, we have it already. Seriously. But here is one for now:
Here are just a few of our features:

Android 4.3
AOKP Ribbons
Comprehensive speed enhancements, including Linaro -O3 and processor-specific optimizations
Unofficial Voodoo Sound support on Note 2 and i9300 devices.
Option to hide lockscreen hints
Carousel lockscreen
Customizable lockscreen buttons and sliders
Chronus clock widget
Customizable hardware and software keys
Transparent navbar and status bar
Customizable navbar ring
Navbar arrow keys
Navigation bar widgets
Customizable power menu
Notification power widget
Notification brightness adjustment
Customizable quicksettings panel
Statusbar mods including center clock and color
LCD Density
Theme engine
Quiet hours
Volume rocker music controls
Full Rotation
Customizable battery and notification light
More that haven't even been mentioned, and more to come!



You can also find a changelog in Settings->Carbon->About Carbon


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 page linked above. It's new, but expanding fast. Just like us!

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) Join our G+ Community: This is where we spend the bulk of our time and the best way to reach us and other community members. We update and frequent this community far more than XDA, simply due to time constraints and the convenience of G+.

5) Ask a question on our IRC channel. Connect to #teamcarbon on 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! Donate here to team Carbon.

Working/not working?
Looks excellent! Could you provide details on what is currently working or not working? A lot of JB roms have wifi/mobile connection problems or non working cameras.

- Torch works, but high brightness is the same light level as normal. Option does nothing.
- InspireMod does not do anything, either. Settings->about still says Desire HD (this also occured on your PAC-man ROM)
- Switching WiFi APs crashes gapps, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger
- Settings->Carbon Fibers->Device Tunables does nothing.

- Bluetooth seems to work fine.
- Cellular seems to work fine.
- Camera and gallery work exceptionally well. Camera takes much better pictures than the one included with your PAC-man ROM :P
- If the WiFi worked, then I would use the ROM on a daily basis. Since it doesn't, I'll probably be switching back to 10.1 unofficial or something. This is a very smooth ROM so far...

I forgot to change the boot.img from PAC-man ROM to Carbon ROM. *facepalm* Now WiFi works!
I now condone this ROM as my OFFICIAL everyday use.

Also, very high ram usage. 564MB used right now with nothing but XDA running.
Fails to play YouTube videos.
Also fails to check email automatically.

Inspire 4G. I'll test your ROM and give you a bug report.

Hi @CedArctic , I was using your previous Carbon rom with JB 4.2.2 and now switched to this one to test it out. I find that it's very smooth, but this are a list of things that are not working properly:

- For some reason, every google app installed with the package you provided, FC at some time.
- Video recording does not work. At all.
- Mobile Data works sometimes. When I switch it on, the icon constantly appears and dissapears until some minutes later it fully works and turns blue.
- Very high ram usage, not one app opened and I just have 29mb free.

I will test some other things like music and video playback when I have the time and get back at you. It would be cool to know if you read this message, thanks!

Info 2
I think I'll stick with CM10.1 Unofficial until a near-bugless CM10.2 comes out for my Inspire 4G.

Thanks for the offer, however I have decided it's time for me to upgrade my phone. I'm going to leave my phone the way it is, and then sell it when my new one arrives.

If anyone is interested in it please pm me. Again thanks for the offer.
