Hello!

Decided to come back to this ROM for the stability and full OMS support.

I'm having the same issue as others regarding the white QS tile icons on a white background.

Just wondering if a fix is still planned or if development for O has come to an end now that P is out?

Thanks!

This rom is always the fastest rom on all my devices. Congratulations! On Nexus 6, idle drain is way too high. Fix your kernel and it will improve or not.

This is quite interesting topic for me too. If the development is going to be stopped or we can expect future fixes.

Thank you!!!

Developement is not stopped, new builds with September Security patches will be released soon.

As for the QS bug. I've yet to find a fix. It's a compatibility issue caused by substratum and there just doesn't seem to be a fix for it. We'll continue trying to fix that in Pie though.

Appreciate the update!

As for the white QS tiles, if anyone is interested, I've found a temporary workaround:

If you set a light wallpaper with this app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lb.lwp_plus

And choose primary bg colour as something dark, the issue goes away! Also, applying a Substratum theme seems to help get rid of the issue as well.

Hi all!!

I wanted to do a clean install with the latest cr and somehow cant go through it. I have already done this before but now it doesnt work and I always end up booted in twrp...so,

- i downloaded latest 8.1 factory images and executed flash all script separatelly for both slots
- booted twrp image, cleaned cache and data and flashed cr and twrp zip (latest twrp for taimen).
- after reboot to system my pixel does not go to the system but it reboots again and ends in twrp....

Do you see from the steps above that I am doing something wrong?? (Btw, Im flashing via adb sideload). If I remember correctly I followed the same procedure as for the first time when I installed cr.

Thanks for help!

Best,

I am getting the same. I keep ending up back at the bootloader.

Heyy, Ive solved that. It was my fault. Always when you are going to reboot, twrp asks you if you would like to install twrp app...I always swiped by heart and therefore allowed the app installation. But there is a button "do not install" which have to be pressed.

Why the install process is so complicated compared to other ROMs ?

Don't know what you mean. This is the normal procedure to install a ROM on A/B devices.

Hey, just wondering if it's possible to have the option to have the default toast/animation?

Thanks in advance:)

Due to the way its implemented at the moment that's not easily possible. Paired with the fact that Noct is on Feature-Freeze this will likely not happen.

    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... and at CarbonROM Gerrit.

    Disclaimer:
    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!

    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) Join our Discord server! 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.

    Notice:
    In order to install GApps, you must flash the ROM then reboot into TWRP before flashing the recommended MindTheGapps GApps package (as this switches slots).
    Also, we know the default wallpaper on is black. We know it's caused by the RRO overlays on vendor and unfortunately we can't change the default (yet?), you can change it manually without complications though.
    We know it’s complicated, but it sure is worth it!

    Install Instructions:
    1. Flash the newest factory images on both slots
    2. Move your ROM + [GApps] + TWRP.zip to your internal storage
    3. Boot the TWRP.img > Check what Slot you're on (Reboot Menu) ->Wipe Data & Cache -> Flash the ROM as well as the TWRP.zip
    4. Either Reboot to system or, in case you want GApps, reboot to recovery via TWRP (Reboot -> Recovery)
    5. Check and confirm that you are on the opposite slot from Step 3. If not, switch to it and reboot the recovery again (Reboot Menu) -> Flash GApps (and whatever else you want to flash -> Reboot to System -> Enjoy CarbonROM

    You got now listening, but what about active edge? I'm assuming not yet, yeah? Could you share a list of carbonROM features that are working with this build??
    Had to reverse engineer a lot of google code to get Now Listening to work, and now that I know what I'm doing, active edge is up next :p

    New build

    The March Security patches dropped yesterday. As promised before, I took that as a opportunity to run a new taimen build.

    Some infos for CARBON-CR-6.1-TBA-XDA-taimen-20180306-1853:
    • This build includes the March Security patches
    • We moved from OpenGapps to MindTheGapps. The reason behind that is simple. MindTheGapps Just Works. that means that terribly annoying Playstore App download issue is gone.
    • However, that also means that only the "basics" are included. So no Pixel Launcher, Google Camera and so on. Please download and install that on your own. It will still flawlessly work, its just not included by default anymore.

    Happy Flashing.

    P.S. The link to the mirror got changed to a different Server. I didn't know that Amazon AWSs free tier only includes 15GB of traffic a month, so I ended up paying for an extra 150GB last month. Ouups :D
    If you encounter any issues with the main download server or the mirror, please let me know and I will try to find an alternative.

    New build

    A new build has just been uploaded. After 4 days of research, countless testbuilds and hours spent on reading code, I finally got VoWiFi working for Verizon users.
    I ALSO fixed the ModemService crash, so we should be fully stable now (expect for occasionally occuring PlayStore FCs at boot it seems, for that, See if Play Services is granted all permissions in Settings -> Apps -> Google Play Services -> Permissions).

    As always, let us know when encounter any issues, and till then: Happy flashing :)

    BIG thanks to @fhem and @klabit87 for spending so much time on testing and providing logs, you guys really saved me.

    No thanks to @kheltek and @MikereDD for never providing promised Tacos :crying:

    Alright, my 2.10 Flash Kernel has been re-uploaded with a copy of Magisk's magiskboot binary that will patch the dtbo image to remove verity if you are on anything other than stock. I had this idea last night but @frap129 helped me figured out a sure proof way (for the most part) to ensure only stock doesn't get patched (so people don't get the warning at boot). Flash should now be 100% compatible with Carbon :cowboy:
