    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.

    We recommend MindTheGApps. OpenGApps should work, but please make sure you clearly mention the gapps you're using when reporting bugs.

    Notice:
    For this ROM to work you need to use the latest ODM Images. If you need additional guidance on how to do that, please refer to Sonys Guide on how to flash an ODM Image.

    No one tried this rom yet? I have a problem over here. It keeps asking for password after the CarbonROM logo even though I wipe everything clear, any ideas? What I was doing was flash 41.3.A.2.99 with everything wiped, flash ODM, flash TWRP, flash the rom and then Pico OpenGapps. Something wrong with my procedure? Thanks in advance.
    EDIT1 : Oh yeah, forgot to mention my device is F8332, it isn't supported?

    Use the "format data" option in TWRP to get rid of encryption, wipe doesn't clear encryption. If coming from stock, thats necessary unfortunately due to differences in the encryption used. Otherwise (if coming from AOSP) the password its asking for would be the one you used before.

    Alright format it is. :D
    Dual sim support?
    No it isn't. At least out of the box. You can find a patch on Sony AOSP Build thread.

    First of all, thanks alot @Myself5 and all other devs, who are working hard to bring this to our XZ :good:

    My experiences after 1 day:
    - rom is very smooth and snappy.
    - root via Magisk v16 & Xposed 90.1-beta3 (systemless) works flawlessly
    - the fp sensor always works, but it's not as sensitive as with stock
    - night light worked - until I've installed Substratum and a Substratum theme, but after that it doesn't work anymore (even after deactivating, uninstalling the theme, a system restart and deinstalling the Substratum app it sill doesn't work). Also a dirty flash of the rom.zip didn't help to get it working again.
    - the build-in camera takes acceptable pics (not as well as the stock camera, but acceptable); also focussing is a little slower than stock. Another thing is, it's not possible to chance the location to save the pics to the ext. sdcard.
    - formatted as a portable storage, the ext. sdcard item on the left of the status bar can't be removed (see attachement)
    - the battery consumption is a bit high (from 100 % to 98 % in 1 h - without doing anything)

    But in the whole, it's really promising for th 1st official build :good::good::good:

    Hello, is the battery life when used good ? As good as stock ?
    And does it have that bug when if you record video the result will be green ?

    The battery consumption while in use is ok. But my device doesn't go into deepsleep while the screen is off. So I had lost about 23 % in 10 hrs - leaving the device untouched!
    Video recording works; I haven't noticed that bug.

    Can you upload screen recording of rom from home to settings and other functions.

    Sorry, I went back to stock for now, as there's a new stock fw (41.3.A.2.107).

    I have a few bugs to report. First, the fingerprint sensor is extremely slow, about half or even one third of the speed compared to stock. Second, could you guys please fix the deepsleep? That one is not working for now. And third, Night Light does not work at all...
    Thank you for updating the XZ to Android 8.1 I am glad to see carbon rom on this device although it is not that stable for now. ;)

    Really nice ROM and I'm looking forward to make this my daily driver, I tried it for two days and these are the bugs I found:
    1: GPU performance is really bad with 2d games and google maps lagging all the time when they never do on stock
    2: CPU performance is inferior compared to stock, especially single threaded
    3: enabling 120 hz display won't do anything and the settings or UI will crash when leaving the page
    4: fingerprint seems to be sometimes less responsive, usable but can be improved

    Camera is not so bad and the modded google camera works well, hopefully this will become the first proper AOSP based platform for this device that has only seen failures until now, keep up the good work.

    Can I dirty flash this rom for just update?

    I use Carbon Rom 3/31 version, but I can't use delta update because my device cannot receive the stock script.
    I must change the rom script with Notepad+.
    So...can I use dirty flash or....could you manage it?

    Thanks for continously updating this rom ;) and thank you for fixing the bug with the fingerprint sensor.
    I'm not sure if deepsleep has been fixed but there is a big problem with playing music. I can't even play any music track at all...

    Clean flashed the 10th build along with Rytekk's dual-SIM patch, Pico Open GApps and Magisk 16.3 to my F8332 and other than that annoying SD notification (which can be banished to the notification drawer by making System UI notifications low priority) and Night Light not working, the only other major issue raised ITT of the CPUs not entering Deep Sleep is fixed according to Adiutor.

    Great stuff. I haven't been able to standardise on one ROM since the CM days (interesting side note, it looks like you built the kernel for the NOCT build on my Z2 tablet).

    I recommend this to anyone for daily use. Also, lower your expectations to realistic levels guise. I remember when XDA threads were for flagging major broken functionality, not complaining that a few amateur enthusiasts weren't putting out work that competed on every indicator against the finished product of a multibillion-dollar for-profit international conglomerate.

    Sent from my Sony Xperia XZ using XDA Labs

    Could you please give a link to that dual SIM patch?I have flashed this ROM on my F8332 successfully but none of my SIM cards works

      kagura is going on a halt, possibly forever.

      Some of you might've seen it already. There is no new weekly for kagura this week. The reason is because I decided to drop support for it. Due to constantly reoccurring issues with devicetrees from Sony (the sonyxperiadev github) and the stubbornness of other developers involved as well as their unwillingness to accept/see obvious issues paired with the lack of time I am suffering from which makes it impossible for me to fix things at the moment I decided to make a cut and stop it here.
      I couldn't longer justify the terrible performance and issues the official builds had, especially given that there is no light visible at the end of the tunnel.

      I am sorry for the few people that liked the ROM and were willing to live with the ROM.

      Also I've been told that "All the performance issues will be fixed on the 4.9 Kernel". Honestly that's been an ongoing theme and I don't think it will be anywhere near stock performance. If however hell freezes over and 4.9 will magically fix all issues, I'll make the devices rejoin the official roaster. Realistically that won't happen before P though.

      I might attempt a stock bringup based on the perfectly working yoshino one at some point, however I have no clue if that would work, nor how long that might take.

      If you're looking for an alternative for now, I'd recommend OmniROM. Great devs and I enjoy working with them on various things.

      I will keep you updated on the potential stock bringup, just don't expect anything to happen anytime soon and PLEASE don't be mad if nothing happens at all, it's really just an experiment for now.

      Rom says that im on wrong vendor after flashing last one, any news about next build?

      I discovered some last minute issues that I need to fix this weekend, then a new build will come asap

      The new build is out, and it force encrypts your phone. Don't think reformating Data in recovery will remove it either, oh no. When I say "force encrypts" I mean it.

      I just don't understand why. Omni's last build was doing the same thing but I assumed it was because they're not good at what they do. I'm going to give eXistenZ a try but probably revert to an old AOSP build.

      I'm not angry. Just disappointed.


      Same here, I am disappointed too. I was running Carbon Rom for so many times on other devices such as my Z2 and they all turned out well but not on the XZ. The thing is noone really wants to put effort in this. You can clearly see that at the update policy and the bugs... Btw have the nightlight and the system ui laggs been fixed?

      Oh no! How dare me (and others) trying to provide a basic and stocklike level of security!! We should all feel sorry for dissapointing you!!!
