I finally got to testing with an older recovery. I flashed TWRP 3.3.1-0, then flashed CarbonROM 20210920-1731 & FlameGApps 20211016 via TWRP (wiped data, Dalvic, cache, system, internal storage before flashing).
After booting i skipped most configuration steps and only set a passcode. Then I tried to encrypt the tablet, but after leaving the device stuck at boot screen for more than 20 hours, I gave up and powered it off.
How long is the encryption process expected to last? I am afraid I am about to damage the screen if I keep experimenting...
I had another try with encryption but with similar results . This is what I did:
Hi Bro, i have installed the 2 most recent versions, but both versions have the same error, that is, the record file connot be deleted after recording.
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.
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!
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.
