Thanks for the rom. I'm having a weird and annoying issue. Magisk rooted, twrp, I clean flashed your ROM with GAPPS. But for some reason every time a superuser dialog window prompts up I cannot select any options. The same happens with every other dialog prompt on the phone. For example i download apk from a website. Install an apk from unknown sources with Google Chrome will pop up, but when I touch the toggle switch to approve chrome installing the apk nothing happens.

It honestly seems as if there's an overlay blocking me from touching anything.

I get a toast notification on a lot of the settings toggles and all the superuser user grant/deny prompts. The toast says "Because an app is obscuring a permission request, Settings can't verify your response"

I'm researching to find a fix and found a few things that mentioned disabling edge gestures and another that said to turn off drawing over other apps in the settings but neither of those working unfortunately... Any ideas?

Okay problem resolved. Thanks to user at overstackflow. I disabled Smart Pixels from the Carbon ROM Extra Settings and there's no overlay issues now. Here's what the post I found said.
Another cause is the Smart Pixels battery saving feature that is present on some custom Android ROMs; ie Resurrection Remix. Disabling Smart Pixels will solve the problem.

In Resurrection Remix the setting is in Settings > Resurrection Tools > Interface > Smart Pixels > Enable Smart Pixels. Note:This setting is Disabled by default.

I just wonder why has the latest release/Update still the November 2020 Security Patch?

To be honest: We simply havn't had time to do it yet. It's currently planned that the next release (scheduled for the 20th of January) will include the December as well as the January Security Patches

    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, build, and use our code at CarbonROM's GitHub...

    What is PAX?
    Our release of Android 10, titled CR-8.0, is codenamed PAX after the latin word for peace and Pax, the roman godess for peace.
    PAX provides you with the features you need while keeping the focus on delivering an elegant, smooth, and well polished experience. PAX delivers a set of unique features, like a systemwide font engine that also allows for applying fonts on user apps while supporting user fonts through custom APKs generated on fonts.carbonrom.org. We are confident you'll love it, and there's many more things to discover ;)

    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! As always, make sure to do backups.

    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) Join our Discord server or Telegram group! There, you can connect with other Carbon users and our developers, and you can get quicker responses to your bug reports. The invite link is right below.

    You should start off with the latest OxygenOS on both slots and then proceed to flash Carbon.

    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!

    Excited to try this.

    Quick question, would this rom have the same bugs as Lineage 17.1?

    I wouldn't be aware of any bugs on Lineage 17.1 (nor on Carbon for that matter), but we're using the same device sources as Lineage on Carbon, so if there was an issue with them, then you'd have them on Carbon too, yes.
    CR 9.0 is released, today
    Yep, and the XDA Thread will be coming later/tomorrow :)
    does this have face unlock? to clarify, I am NOT looking for face unlock... I am looking to avoid the closed source megvii implementation that has been used elsewhere. thanks!

    No, it doesn't for the very reason of not wanting to include the closed source megvii stuff :)
