In version 0.6 I am using hastarin's 8.6 kernel. Kernels and builds react different to everyone depending on your setup, so if something doesn't work for you please let me know and I will fix it ASAP.

Evo Carbon Remix V0.6 Features
-New Evo base from V0.4 and on
-Loud sound (Use DSP manager is needed)
-Added animations
-Android 2.3 keyboard
-Nexus S live wallpapers
-New themed Android Market
-Riptide power bar in notification bar ( eg. like CM6.1, GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth, Cell data, flashlight and sound profile)
-3D flip clock
-PPP
-Full 5mp camera with zoom
-MIUI Music app included
-Wifi should be fixed
-Using hastarins r8.6
-Using letama's new V0.7 ril wrapper for better data connection
-Multi-language
-3-7mA in standby for me
-No green tint in pictures
-Face detection working
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's working
-All things that are working in other builds should be, unless stated below

What's not working
-Everything should be now

FIXES & OTHER THINGS
(1) If you get 1 com.phone.android force close don't be worried, you should only see it once. After you do the reboot after first boot you shouldn't see it again.
(2) If you are on T-MOUS and are having MMS issues, see this for a possible fix http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=8981441&postcount=250
(3) If games such as "Angry Birds" will not install, please unmount your SD card then install then mount back after it has installed.
(4) To use either the themed keyboard or the Gingerbread keyboard just long press in the message field and select the keyboard you want.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
First boot setup

After you boot for the first time please wait about a minute and unlock the phone then reboot immediately or everything will not work correctly!!! Once it boots back up then set everything up normally.

I also always recommend using a new data.img when upgrading to a newer build, that way no weird problems come down the road. When people report bugs i can't always tell if this is the cause or not. So please, if reporting a bug, please tell me if you used an old data.img.

Sweeet! I always did love the Carbon M-deejay build and was saddened when he switched to the flat look of 1.2. The Carbon was the best looking of all of them.

I completely agree, It's themed quite a bit but at the same time it's mild and not too much. That's the main thing I love about the carbon themes :). I plan on theming it more and more I just want to get idea's from other people so everyone will like it. So any apps or anything just let me know guys.

Also, if you guys don't like the battery icon let me know. It's always been my favorite and haven't seen this exact one in any HD2 builds yet so I thought I would.

Yeah I can look into that. You think it would look better with the carbon clock with white numbers?

Kinda like the second picture in this >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=755026

A lot of the stuff in that theme is awesome, I just dont want to take all his ideas lol.

    No not talking about when making a phone call, it happens in the call history, When you hit phone on the main screen, if a call is coming in, I know that when you type they are all together, I could care less about that.

    And I just changed the kernel about an hour ago, since I was having a huge drain on the battery I changed it in hopes it would fix this too, but didnt. :(

    Like I said earlier, it will probably be your Windows ROM. Its definitely not this Android ROM. I hope I'm not coming off "over confident" but I do a lot of battery testing before releasing and I always make sure it sits around 3-8mA before putting it up. Your radio is new so the only thing left to change is your Windows ROM. You have nothing to loose by trying right? Let me know how it goes.

    P.S. If you need anything just send me a PM.

    nice build, smooth, and almost everything worked....but the battery for me is at 88mA on standby, where other builds, gave me 3mA to 5mA, using energy RoM and the radio with -2 on my siggy...

    I have said multiple times in all of my threads that you are going to get bad battery drain on an old radio like yours. Almost all people that complain about bad battery drain have an old radio. I do all my testing on a new radio, use either 2.14 or 2.15. (Not trying to be mean, I just say this at least a few times a day, I'm going to put it in the OP).
