Alright folks!

A new build is up on Carbon website. Download it from here:
https://bit.ly/2UX1StZ


You can find the changelog right here: https://carbonrom.org/carbonrom/changelog

Hope you enjoy it. Happy flashing.

-For the record: we're still working on the encryption issue, we're making some progress, it's just taking loger than expected-

Does the ROM support full substratum OMS?
So that I do not need to reboot and enable overlays every time I install substratum theme. Presently I am on different ROM but I was thinking to test it.

Installation:
  • Wipe /cache, dalvik, /data, /system
  • Flash CarbonROM zip file
  • Flash GApps zip file
  • Reboot into /system

Notes:
Encryption isn't fully supported yet.
If you wish to flash CarbonROM on an encrypted device you have to decrypt it first (TWRP --> Wipe --> Format Data --> Yes).
You can now proceed to flash CarbonROM.​
Sorry for the inconvenience, it will be fixed soon.
As said encryption is not "fully" supported.
I want to know what is the partial support of encryption? Please let me understand.

No, it doesn't. The explanation is pretty simple: Substratum development team is asking everyone not release builds with it.

The ROM fails to boot if you flash it while being encrypted. But if you flash while decrypted and then encrypt from within CarbonROM settings itself the encryption will succeed -notice that, doing so, the system will have to manually encrypt the device at each boot-.

"manually encrypt" means I have to again encrypt the device after reboot to system if I wish to do so.
Am I right?

https://bit.ly/2VKepq1


P.S.A.:
Encryption should be fully working now, the issue should be finally done, but please, keep in mind that it's still under testing: I would suggest you to take a full backup of your /data and internal storage before messing up with it!
If you choose to proceed, please report and let me know how everything goes.

Click on this link to read the full changelog, we've added many cool things -check out the launcher too :p-

Hope you enjoy it. Happy flashing.

How certain it is that it should work? Worst case scenario - fail to decrypt storage and bootloop? I'm gonna try it during weekend.

Btw. is there an option in Carbon to unlock the device on pin-pad after entering 4 correct numbers without the need to tap on [enter]?

Because we tested it, but still, we didn't try all the kinds of scenarios - for example: we are pretty sure that coming from an encrypted ROM, Carbon flashes nicely or that there is no issues when encrypting the device within the ROM itself; while I have no clue if the encryption password can be successfully changed - hence why I'd like to hear feedbacks form other users.

Worst case scenario - fail to decrypt storage and bootloop?
Worst case you can't access to the system and you'll be forced to perform a format data.

No.

No.


Encrypting from within Carbon works for me. Changing password after encryption works for me.

If someone could test flashing Carbon over an encrypted OOS/LOS install, would be great. Then @zzkW35 can put the encryption issue to rest. :)

Yes, main thing I'd still need to understand is the password change after a flash over an encrypted ROM.
A normal flash over encrypted LOS (or whatever) works fine.

9.0.2 stable OTA is out for oxygen OS and I have installed carbon ROM latest build first time on my device after testing various 9.0 ROMs.
Here is my initial impression regarding the ROM:
1) Performance is very very good. The ROM is pretty stable. I did not find any bug right now.
2) I installed Magkernel which is my favorite and
under clocked the CPU approx. 1500 for upper cluster and approx 1200 for little cluster.
Enabled the touch boost in Kernel Audiuter App so as to increase the frequency while touching the screen.
Set the read ahead in I/O Scheduler to 2048.
After this set up I did not notice any lag while using the phone even if I have under-clocked the CPU pretty much.
And the end result is the outstanding battery back up.
My battery was 41% at night 10:00 pm and in early morning at 6.00 am I was surprised to see the status bar for battery percentage which is still 41%. Amazing sleep mode which is the combo of this amazing ROM with this custom kernel.

Thanks for the Carbon ROM team.

Magkernel? Are you talking about MadKernel? Any specific settings for touch boost.

    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.

    "manually encrypt" means I have to again encrypt the device after reboot to system if I wish to do so.
    Am I right?

    No, as I said, the system gets encrypted by itself.
    But that's not a problem anymore, we solved the issue, encryption is finally fully supported.
