ANY PROBLEMS? Read this first:

Q: Swyping doesn't work on my keyboard, but I want to use this feature! It force-closes.
A: The original AOSP keyboard has any kind of problem in the sources of the keyboard. So please search in Google for "Google Kitkat Keyboard", download it and install it on your phone. Now, swyping would work for you.

Q: I can't set a Minimal or Maximal CPU frequency, but I want to do this!
A: This is because of the 3.0.31 Kernel, this function isn't unlocked on this Kernel. So if you want to set things like this, please install an App like "No-frills CPU" from PlayStore on your phone, working fine for me.

Q: The settings in my Launcher doesn't work, no reaction after touching onto the symbol!
A: This is a Launcher problem of Carbon Rom, please solve it in installing this on your phone, the Launcher settings will work now.

Q: No APN is here, I can't type it manually!
A: If you don't have any apn, try a apn reset/reboot/mixed the first two. It's there.

Q: "Expanded Desktop" isn't working!
A: It is surely working; Go into settings/Carbon fibers/Interface and activate "Expanded Desktop"; Then navigate in Carbon fibers to "Status bar" and swipe to "Quick Settings", add here in "Tiles and layout" the "Expanded Desktop"-tile or navigate to and you will see it works.
