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.

Yeahhhh!!
I was soooo waiting for you mate to do this ...!!

Now all i need to do again is take a deep breath , go to bed , wake tomorrow , take another deep breath back my stuff and then Reflash my phone with ur Rom =D

2 Questions though ( hope its allowed )

1) Why bluetooth is dead and why wifi is bugy ? ( seemed to work fine on the other CM releases )
2) In case i flash , will i be able to update somehow the rom instead of reflashing all over again from the beggining ?

Thank you , have a good night , i cant wait to see your answers in the morning when i wake up!

Bluetooth is not working because for now i have removed it.. The carbon sources are missing stuff related to bluetooth.. And i have to edit many files.. So for now its not working..

Wifi is buggy on cm sources also.. It works usually but you may or not face issues.. But its working decent enough.. Let me know once you flash it.. It's still very initial stages of carbon as many things are yet to be merged.. good night
