Everyone remember that no one is obligated to give you anything. People build roms and develop things in their own free time as a hobby forfree. Please show some respect to those who provide developments for your device ;)

Sticking to the topic - latest update is buggy for me. I have completely no sound - ringtones, in call speaker - none is working. Even audio from music players is not working, giving application crash eventually. Tried fresh install with same result.

I can attest to this. No sound whatsoever! Fresh installed twice just to make sure that i wasn't doing anything wrong but still no sound.

just tried this ROM on a 5803 with US .ftf firmware. Looks, runs great - only issue I encountered after a day or two of use is Waze not being able to access GPS. (results in blank map screen). Weird because Google maps works fine.

Extra weird because occasionally GPS icon will stay in taskbar [when no apps are open/using GPS].

I'm running the Feb build as March users reported audio loss.

Besides my weird GPS issue, awesome ROM - great work and thanks!

As a user of a Z5C curious about CarbonRom but a bit discouraged by the no-sound-problem, I just wanted to drop that CarbonRom is looking for maintainers through their blog.
Would drop the link, but I can't due to forum restrictions :rolleyes:

I'm actually trying the last build from 13/09/2017. It's fast and responsive, although I miss some features that we can find in Resurrection remix.

But my question here is, does the kernel fully supports wake features ? Because the "doubletap2wake" doesn't work.

I don't know if it's that different, but I don't think so. Kernels for custom ROMs are similar. I tried to flash RR kernel over Carbon and the issue remains. So the problem is from the ROM itself, the kernel seems fine.
Both ROMs are quite old afaik? Anyway, the only experience I've had with tap to wake (on an LCD display at all) has been bad. Battery drain is higher and I just don't prefer it at all.

    HUGE Shoutout to @myself5 for all the help in porting this rom!
    If you enjoy this rom why not Donate to support future releases

    It has been really fun porting and Lineage and Carbonrom top the Z5C, and it has been amazing to see you guys (The community) try it out for yourselves and make your own builds. Due to my Z5C being broke I have passed it on to a recycling company - meaning I can no longer test or update builds. Please do feel free to link your own builds in the comments (As long as they do not breach the rules of course ;) )
    Thanks for the support this year - and I want to thank those who are keeping their own builds up to date! :)

    New update is in the works, and will "likely" fix wifi and fingerprint ;)
    As well as some bluetooth issues
    Update: 20170618-0214
    - Attempt to fix wakelocks (adjusting kernel configs)
    - Lineage and Suzuran source updates
    -Theme resource update
    -Camera service runs better
    -Phone app smoother
    -Fingerprint unlock speed is better and more reliable
    -Webapp is more stable
    -Framework boosts

    Next update I will be adding it so that the fingerprint only activates after screen is on so that pocket useage is minimal :p + less battery

    Thanks to @CubeDev who made this possible with the Build server while mine is repaired!
    Update from me: over the weekend I will be compiling new builds of lineage and carbon (there will still be no WiFi sadly), mainly just a bug fix update, nothing big. I am working alongside some great developers and hoping to get WiFi working soon (For those that don't know, it's the kernel that isn't working, as it doesn't have the suzuran drivers, sadly they are different drivers from most other Xperia's)
