CarbonRom is another aftermarket ROM having its unique features. I have been playing with Carbon for sometime. It has some unique features like CarbonFibers and ActiveDisplay. Another cool ROM worth trying. Cheers!

Release Note:
2014/12/12
For some unknown reason, download provider is missing in the last build. I have to rebuild to make to work. Hoping this is really the final build...

2014/12/6
Lollipop is out and the last commit is weeks ago so this is the final version of Carbon 4.4.4. Hoping the lagecy could continue in 5.0. Cheers!

I have upgrade my build enviornment and tried the AOSP l-preview for the past few weeks. It is more or less doable and quite stable. SKD API20 is not release yet and the version no. still show 4.4.3.43.43. I think that's why CM and others didn't touch l-preview.
I don't think the L source would come soon so I downgrade my build environment. It's been a month and about time for Carbon update!

2014/8/2
Just finished the GPU performance settings. In case some tabs might have lower tolerance, I lowered the GPU default min. and max. freq.
I also enable the Carbon performance tool. You can flash kernel and recovery from there. zRAM can only be enabled by TricksterMod. Old methods doesn't work on Kitkat. This build included all Carbon features. Enjoy!

2014/7/2
WC take a rest for a few days. It is about time for a new Carbon.

2014/4/19
There are a few bugs in CarbonRom for our tab since day one. SystemUI crash, Some pages in CarbonFibers crash...etc. I finally fixed them this weekend! So it's time for me the share. It include all the fixes in my Kitkat roms.

This ROM more better then the other 4.4 ROM, stable, super fast and more important is on the searching network signal part. Even losing network signal after reboot. Thanks you very much for making this great ROM for our TAB.

Thanks, worked for me as well, but can't stay on this ROM as bluetooth headset doesn't work with media, only with calls. Same problem as Omni. Works on CM11 and SlimKat, but SlimKat camera doesn't work, so I'm trying CM11 now, looks good so far =)

Dear Daniel, I have install this CarbonROM on to my P6800. It works like a charm. But...i thinks it cannot charged well using my original charger as other ROM. Charging never increase battery level, tend to decrease. Finally it dried up my tab. Now i cannot turn on my tab and still cannot charge it. I have used this tab for 2 years and loved to try many of your masterpiece ROM on it. Any suggestion to turn it on? Thanks bro...

I've given this a go on my P6810 and although basically good, I found one problem that was a deal breaker for me in that the bluetooth doesnt seem to work correctly. I could pair and connect with my external speaker (Minx Go) but the audio wasnt routed to the speaker.

Otherwise was a nice smooth rom with no other problems that I found. Ive gone back to the Cyanogen version for now.

Thanks for your efforts, I shall look for any updates. Got to say that bluetooth is a bit "flakey" on all the kit kat roms at the moment.

SlimKat and CM11 work fine for Bluetooth media audio for me. SlimKat perfectly, cm11 works but more jumpy

I have found a problem with Slimkat/Carbon/CM11/Omni ROMs

The top and bottom mics are reversed; meaning that the top microphone (which should be for noise cancellation) is used as the main microphone and bottom microphone (which should be the main microphone) is used for noise cancellation.

I have tried all 4 ROMs today and they all have the exact same problem.

Previously only one microphone was active and you successfully fixed this Daniel by enabling both microphones, now we just need to reverse them to make them work properly.
