About Carbon

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 at, build, and use our code on CarbonDev GitHub. and on our Gerrit CarbonDev Gerrit.

We would like to thank CyanogenMod for their device trees, framework/settings mods and their code that was incorporated into this project. We also extend our gratitude to the devs whose code that we have incorporated. Proper authorship has been maintained whenever possible and can be viewed on our repository.

Special thanks also go to Slim Rom for some of their features, PA, AOKP, and anyone else we may have borrowed commits from that hasn't been mentioned here. If you feel you have been unfairly left out, please - let us know.

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! If you have questions, ask your fellow users or ask us in #teamcarbon on freenode IRC.

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) Ask a question on our IRC channel. Connect to #teamcarbon on irc.freenode.net or click here. You'll find several other Carbon fans and usually one or more devs as well. Please be polite.

Known issues:
  • Screenrecording locks up device. ( do not use )
  • Moving apps to SD does not work. Reports "not enough space" or something similar. FIXED! see here
  • OTG Host mode only works once per boot.
  • If GApps are not flashed there is a ramdom reboot issue due to issue with gps blog. Not an issue as long as you flash GApps.
  • Setting a govenor via "PerformanceControl" may not work due to "Usecase" control.
  • Offline Charger options via "Extras" do not work.
  • Root is disabled by default. Some options in "Extras" and "Performance" depend on root. Enable in "Developer Options"

WOWWW you are back! I thought this phone was already forgotten. Let me try this on my old t599n with stock laggy tw 4.1.2 with internal memory for only 2 or 3 apps.

Can't wait for MM rom.

Great work and welcome back!!

Update: Hi @Meticulus , I am using this rom and I like it. I got just some little issues:

First: Is the Carbon sources updated? I ask this because i see in my language (portuguese) there are lot of words not translated (when i was on cm 12.1 in my s5 didnt face this issue), i see that the security patch is November 2015 (a bit old no?)

Second: I don't know why but i can't install facebook... it took like 5 minutes to install and then it fails with error -504 on playstore

BTW great work man, I really wanna try your CM 13 on this machine

Keep it up

If anyone is reading this, I've noticed http://www.meticulus.co.vu is down (probably for years). Is there any way to obtain the 5.11 Carbon ROM ? I have two old T599N devices that I want to "resurrect/upgrade". I've googled a lot but could not find any download links for the 5.1.1 Carbon ROM created by Meticulus for this device. I also tried searching for this in DC hubs but without success. Thank you!
