I'm using mr2 8.5 and I have the latest nightly. Are those compatible? And I'm using leankernel because I heard that people are experiencing random reboots without it. With it, they are pretty much 100% stable. Not unless another kernel will work

I got LeanKernel flashed on my phone and when I reboot, it sticks on the boot screen. I have had to factory reset my phone 4 times since yesterday. Does anyone know what the problem could be or have any way of fixing it?

Not sure, I'm using now on the latest nightly with no problems...

I have no random reboots without lean kernel. The rom works perfectly.

Loving the ROM so far! The only gripe is that i can't seem to watch Youtube videos longer than 2 minutes without having the data stop. Oh well, still amazing ROM nonetheless!

This is a dumb question, but I just want to verify. This is 4.3, not 4.2.2 right?

Also, I have an old version of Carbon on my phone. Its 4.2.2 from March 26, 2013. If I update with the newest version, I'm not going to want to dirty flash that, right?

The latest nightlies are 4.3 yes. I've dirty flashed from 4.2 on but you should backup before trying just to be safe. If you can, also use titanium backup for your apps. If the dirty flash doesn't work you can restore apps and data after a clean flash. Eases the pain from starting from scratch a bit. Good luck. Very stable in my opinion. Only an occasional hiccup here and there. Only gripe I have is stripes when the stock camera is used with the flash, but that happens only occasionally.

Thanks! Worked great.

I do have a big issue tho. My phone cannot find the sprint network, both data and voice. Any ideas?

Edit: I adjusted the mobile network settings and it worked fine after that!

Alright, I need some help. I did a clean wipe and flashed the 11-15 nightly with gapps. I couldn't get voice connectivity so I flashed the 11-17 nightly. Still no voice connectivity so I went to a backup. No voice connectivity again. I'm going to the only other backup I have on my device, but I'm not confident after the last one didn't work.

I've flashed ROMs since the original Droid and haven't had this problem before. Any ideas? Basically, I try to connect to sprint and it says it can't connect, event though I have several bars.

Help please.

In the wireless and data settings, there is an APN setting. Penn that and there are several entries. Choose an alternate one of those and that usually kick-starts data.

If you don't have LTE in your area you might want to switch the mobile data to EVDO as well.

    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.

    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 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.

    Simply stated, we can't really list features here. There are too many and they change too frequently, and we now support a truly insane number of devices. Chances are, if you like a feature, we have it already. Seriously.





    Carbon Updates

    Join us on these Social Media Channels to keep yourself up-to-date on all the latest Carbon news, updates, contests, and more! Join our completely open Google+ community for insider conversation with devs and other users.

    Download Carbon

    All Carbon downloads and further information such as features, changelog, and FAQ can be found on our goo.im page.

    Both nightly and release builds are available. Please note that nightlies are for development purposes. This means that they may not work properly, may not flash, may not build for days at a time, and will probably eat your cat. If you flash these, know what you're doing, have backups, and don't complain when something happens. It's on you!



    For a detailed changelog, check out the changes made each night here:

    Change Log

    You can also find a changelog in Settings->Carbon->About Carbon


    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 goo.im page linked above. It's new, but expanding fast. Just like us!

    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 G+ Community: http://community.carbon-rom.com This is where we spend the bulk of our time and the best way to reach us and other community members. We update and frequent this community far more than XDA, simply due to time constraints and the convenience of G+.

    5) 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.

    Remember, every penny you send to us goes right back into the rom. It's used for hardware, server costs, etc - all the things that help us make Carbon better with every release. Your support means the world to us! If you've enjoyed Carbon, please consider a donation toward this goal. Thank you, and we hope you continue to enjoy Carbon!

    best thing you guys can do is use an alternative kernel for now. i recommend leankernel.

    that said, we're working on another build that should resolve the issues us d2 folks are experiencing. to be honest we usually start working on the next build as the one we're releasing is still building.
    Why make the claim if it's not?
    If you bought a vehicle that said turbo then looked under the hood and there was no turbo then it's not a turbo. When you look at code you can tell if it is "patched" with linaro but not truly linaro. I haven't seen the code for this but I'm gonna bet that it's patched like a leaky ship!

    Question about the rom...... Does wifi tether encryption work yet? And why does browser occasionally crash?

    No more of this Linaro crap! If it has some Linaro optimizations what is the big freaking deal?
    If you build a Linaro kernel or ROM then YOU say FULL Linaro code/No patches!
    I am sick of this starting up everywhere the word Linaro is used
    None of you have a copyright on the word
    You don't believe it? Don't use it!
    If you want to discuss with the developer how to fully optimize it to Linaro then move to the developer's discussion area!
    You make accusations and admit to not even verifying them? THAT is trolling!
    Anymore of this crap will be met with infractions
    Thank you for your cooperation

    Kenny, I respect you and we are familiar with each other from the OG Epic days, but everything I seen so far regarding the linaro debate been favor to the accusers. Great Offender did not start this argument, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't trolling either like many he want something to be prove to what it's said to be and not a derivative of it. BigwillyG, I think that's his name, made an accusation and provided proof for his accusation and had proof against those claiming the ROM is actually linaro, why was nothing done and the dev was favored? And another thing, how is the ROM built using Google's tool chain, but can be still called Linaro isn't that false advertisement?

    Same to you Masaidjet. I am only going to say this once so everyone can see....XDA does not care if a ROM claims to simonize your car while you drive! It is not violating any forum rules. The users decide whether a ROM is good or not or live up to it's claims. The OP states Linaro optimizations...not fully built on Linaro. I left in the post as absurd as it was to make an accusation without even verifying. That is against the respect rule. ROMs are advertised as "flawless"yet users find bugs...should we lock those threads? Can anyone prove there are no Linaro tweaks in this at all? What I am saying is keep this bickering out of the development threads and let users report issues and get the help they need. Go to PMs, gtalk, Google +, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Joe Flacco's mom's bedroom....I don't care. Just keep it out of here. I have seen this in every Linaro titled thread and it ends here!
    Thank you all for understanding and your cooperation.

    We posted another build up on goo, newer than yesterday. This has updated blobs and was compiled properly in linaro. Yesterdays was done in gcc 4.7 accidentally.

    Please note that the kernel is not yet linaro yet, but will be as we move to the carbon kernel.
