I've been using this ROM for about a fortnight, and I'm quite satisfied with the overall performance and battery backup. The performance is way better than any Android 11 rom, and switching between apps is super smooth. Additional options are not aplenty, but definitely enough, which seemingly help the rom to perform better. The default launcher is also acceptable. There are also some options to aggressively keep battery backup during standby. However, the only problem is that Bluetooth calling simply does not work (at least with my JBL headset) which might be a dealbreaker for some.

I really like this rom especially performance, but just like mcheraghimm bluetooth calling is not working for me :(

Google and Google play games eating too much of battery when idle. Especially from 100 to 80 drainage is very fast. Both apps have been added in 'Restricted apps' for limiting battery usage by rom itself.
i used flamegapps (basic - 26th June 2021) version. any idea what could be the issue?

hi, how install/udpates app into internal memory? I always have the error that the internal memory is full (?). for now (till tomorrow) I just used a small and old sd just to install this rom

edit: ok solved, I have to click "delete sd" even if isn't present...

    Finally published on XDA, a very good ROM, I use it on a daily basis,screen 9+ hours, the speed is at the level of PE 9 CAF, who needs lightweight ROM, with the latest security patches, and without bugs, I can recommend Carbon

    To be honest, I do not really know if this is possible.
    The lock screen normally shuts down most of the censors.
    If you are sure that the accelerometer is active when the screen is locked, it has to be researched.
    Otherwise, you would need TYPE_MAGNETIC_FIELD and TYPE_ACCELEROMETER to adjust the settings.
    I, personally, don't think it is possible.
    Thanks for replying. I'm asking because it's fairly common in other ROMs so I assumed the setting was buried somewhere in the menus. I even looked it up over the github repos ( https://github.com/search?q=org:CarbonROM+lock+screen+rotation&type=commits ) and found multiple commits suggesting it's an existing feature: https://github.com/CarbonROM/android_frameworks_base/commit/afc54cf30f9c3adb4038dc3363cf47bbefc01564

    Sensors wise, I think that's the sleep mode that cutoffs those circuits rather than the lock screen itself so once the display turns back on the sensors are back on as well. But that's just me making guesses really.

    Ok I managed to get the lockscreen rotating but it isn't easy. Basically you need to add a line to build.props using magisk's MagiskHide Props Config module. So, from the terminal after installing and rebooting you su and run props which is a menu driven terminal script. You add a new one (I think it was no.4 in the menu? follow the on-screen instructions...) called lockscreen.rot_override and give it the value true. Then let props initiate the reboot and you're done.

    TL;DR lockscreen.rot_override=true in build.props

    Anyhow, would have been nicer to have it as a CarbonFiber but so long as it works, I'm not complaining :) Thanks.

    Nah it looks like the automation stuff is being shifted into the assistant APIs and SDKs and most projects and foss just hasn't caught up with the changing permissions and such: https://www.xda-developers.com/android-10-rules-automation-feature-rolls-out-some-pixel-devices/

    Currently, I don't think there is a way to automatically shut down one of them, or both of them, if this is what you mean.

    I guess google wants their machine learning to do this automatically for users instead of the users having to go into the settings and script logic.

    Anyhow, I'm sure things will sort themselves out with time so no worries.

    Offtopic, for some reason Axet's Call Recorder didn't work for me even after giving it root so I had to use the magisk module that installs it as a system app. It's sorta weird since android.permission.CAPTURE_AUDIO_OUTPUT should have been granted as I checked "System Mixer Incall Recording" and approved it for superuser but it didn't. I even thought something went wrong with magisk itself but adaway and afwall test fine so...
    Anyhow, thought it's worth mentioning since I keep running into similar premission related issues and some of them are common enough that people already have apps to solve/circumvent them.
