Just installed this on my op7p and everything is working great.. Other than my fingerprint reader. When I start to add a fingerprint it works the first couple touches then it gives me the "fingerprint reader is dirty, clean and try again" anyone else run into this issue? I reboot my phone and it works for about half the setup of one finger and errors out again.

edit: figured out the issue, turned off auto brightness while setting the fingerprints and it worked just fine. Odd little thing, but glad it works now!

so, i've been running carbon for a while now.. been doing the weekly updates. today i tried to reboot into recovery and it looks like a carbon recovery instead of the twrp i had installed. i can't do anything with it. won't let me reboot my phone back to system, won't let me switch to bootloader to install twrp or anything. won't even power off my phone, just always right back to this carbon recovery. HELP! i really don't want to factory reset only to have it dump me right back to this recovery mode and no way to get out of it!

Keep pressing power button + vol- + vol+, that will take you to fastboot mode, flash the twrp recovery from fastboot, you should be good to go.

Warning - do not install this rom. You will lose TWRP. Instead, you will have carbon recovery that is useless.
I tried to install carbon romv twrp. The installation seemed fine. I wanted to restart the system. Instead, I have some weird recovery carbon and a broken phone.
How do I fix my phone so I can reinstall twrp and some working rom?
Edit: long press of the power and vol + buttons triggered the carbon rom. I hope I can install twrp and reinstall this horror.
Edit2: I miraculously managed to install twrp and erase this horror!

If you don't like the recovery you can always flash Twrp file while flashing rom or other way is fastboot method.. don't call someone's hard work horror. You can't even flash or fix properly and saying horror to ROM and dev work. Such A noob. Xda isn't for Nobs so stay away if you can appreciate people work..

Today you learned to be safe and flash the twrp zip after flashing a rom. This happens on multiple other roms as well (RR/ lineage)

    To extend that, it should actually happen on all ROMs as the recovery is part of the boot.img which will be replaced upon a ROM flash and I'm not aware of any ROM shipping TWRP prebundled.

    Anyways, I just had a genuine laugh at the guy trying to be a smartass about how "horrible" the recovery is just to make a complete fool of himself.

    Hello friends, I want to test this ROM, I am in BETA 17, before putting Carbon ROM, do I have to go back to stable OOS? Can I go back to OOS Stable BA (EU) or AA (Global) version? I always use the BA (EU) version. Thank you.

    Hello friends, I have a question. Does Carbon ROM support F2FS format? If you accept it, does it only apply to the "data" partition or to some other partition? Thank you.

    Yes F2FS works on Carbon and yes you only apply to data. Format to F2FS once you have OOS on both slots, then go through the Carbon installation procedure.

    Thanks for answering, I will. Could you tell me what are the steps to install Carbon? I have read the first post and it does not indicate how. Another question I have, as the previous comment says, has the issue of WiFi drops been solved? Thank you.

      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 ;)

      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:

      2) 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.

      +1 could someone on this please test the WiFi connection? On other custom roms e.g Havoc, when further away from the router (therefore a weaker connection) the WiFi would disconnect/reconnect. This does not occur on OOS in the same situation. A log shows some error going on.

      Also to the dev @Myself5 , if I were to switch to this rom, experience this issue, would you be willing to analyse a log in hope of finding a solution?

      Out of curiosity also, is this based on the same source as Havoc?

      I didn't experience any unnormal WiFi behavoir in the past 3 months I've been daily driving it, but if you get it I'd gladly look into it.

      I don't know what kind of device sources Havoc uses, but I'm working together with the Lineage maintainers on device trees. Apart from that the only common thing Carbon and Havoc share is being based on AOSP, i think.

      So iirc for the best installation experience.
      -Flash the Stockie and TWRP in both slots
      (reboot recovery in between)
      -Format
      (reboot recovery again)
      -Flash CarbonROM
      (reboot recovery again)
      -Flash 10.0 Open GApps *nano is favored*
      -Flash Magisk *optional*

      Just want make sure I'm doing this correctly. I'm aware that each rom requires a different amount of seasoning to get it to come out right. Thanks in advance.

      I usually vouch for a "boot to Carbon first" after the GApps step before flashing Magisk as I had issues with flashing Magisk straight away in the past (not on the OP7 though IIRC). Apart from that you're good to go by your guide :)
