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. and on our Gerrit CarbonDev Gerrit.

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.

Support

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 website. Carbon FAQ

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) Ask a question on our IRC channel. Connect to #teamcarbon on irc.freenode.net 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!

...Here is the new discussion thread for the CarbonRom n7000 releases....a new round of nightlies will be available in the morning. Kejar31, Morfic, and myself will continue to support the exynos4 line in spite of our fallen brother....Sadly we had to part ways with ToxicThunder...the details of this can be discussed elsewhere. Carbon is dedicated to continuing the advancement and development of the n7000 and i9100. (as well as all of our devices) Next nightly should be up on the servers in a few hours and i highly reccomend checking them out...

Re: [ROM][AOSP][GCC 4.7/-O3] CarbonRom 1.5 beta JB 4.2.2 [n7000] » Mar 3
I'm sorry for asking a stupid question right off the bat, but what is gcc/-O3?

GCC
http://gcc.gnu.org/develop.html
O3 - this means it's build with linaro toolchain, base version 03.

Hope I got that right.

GCC 4.7 in this scenario refers to Google's GCC 4.7, i would list that in the title except it doesnt look that nice. You may be familiar with the term 'linaro' Google's GCC 4.7 shares a lot of the same traits and tools as the linaro toolchain and in benchmarking (the ROM...kernel is a different story) it seems to outscore linaro almost everytime (across the board) so for now well be sticking with it....The best explanation of O3 i can give you will come from gentoo wiki Which has some pretty cool excerpts...Here's one that might help you gain an understanding of Os, O2, and O3...

What effects -O3 has
-O3 is the highest optimization level and could possibly make faster code but the applications that benefit from it are very few, usually image and video decoders and such. However the side effects, like larger binary size, affects everything. Larger binaries use more memory, load slower, cause more disc I/O, etc. So compiling a system with -O3 will have the effect that a few applications run slightly faster at the expense of the rest of the system running slightly slower and becoming less responsive.
Linux caches regularly used programs and files in RAM (that's the "cache" part when you run free -m on the command line), so the program may only need loading from the hard disk once (depending on the program and computer usage). Therefore this is less of a problem on systems with large amounts of RAM. A large CPU cache also helps as it is better suited to larger binaries, so you are more likely to see some sort of speed up. So if you have a high-end system, you will suffer less from the problems associated with -O3.

The choice: Summarised
-O2 is the default optimization level. It is ideal for desktop systems because of small binary size which results in faster load from HDD, lower RAM usage and less cache misses on modern CPUs. Servers should also use -O2 since it is considered to be the highest reliable optimization level.
-O3 only degrades application performance as it produces huge binaries which use high amount of HDD, RAM and CPU cache space. Only specific applications such as python and sqlite gain improved performance. This optimization level greatly increases compilation time.
-Os should be used on systems with limited CPU cache (old CPUs, Atom ..). Large executables such as firefox may become more responsive using -Os.

@Nocoast - Check your PM.

@All else, please stop with the arguing and speculation. Once this gets taken care of, the thread will be cleaned anyways so no point in wasting keystrokes.

**********************
Edit: Ok the 2nd post was revised. Please note that all team movings and shakings can be read, delat with, talked about, spammed, whatever on the team site. Whether it be Carbon or some other team. There is no need for it here. This is a Development thread about the ROM and not team politics.

Thanks to all, however bangsti, Galaxtus and nocoast, your volleys had to go to preserve the real reason for this thread....ROM Development

Let's not argue here guys. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If i contributed 0% code, I am sorry I couldn't do more.
I tried to do everything to the best of my ability and I learnt a lot in the process.

Cheers

Re: [ROM][AOSP][GCC 4.7/-O3] CarbonRom 1.5 beta JB 4.2.2 [n7000] » Mar 3
Hope someone can help me here as I love this ROM but at the moment it is becoming unstable for me. I am suffering random reboots and recently getting a huge battery drain. All of a sudden my phone become really hot, almost too hot to touch, and the battery just drops off.

I was on 1.5 beta but have gone back to 1.4. My battery stats show gpsd having a huge drain, any idea what this is and how to fix it? Or could it be something else.

How do I get hold of the latest nightly?

Thanks
