It works. This morning i shared internet with my wife while we were in the car driving to work :)

If it's not working for you, try to reflash doing full wipes. Or at least wipe cache and dalvik and re flash.

is it ? i can enable hotspot , but my lapp is not detecting the hotspot .i did reboots and wiping, may be will try once again. or may be using perseus 16.1 might be the issue

Guy's, does anyone else have this issue that in settings/carbon fibers/device tunables there is nothing in @NBruderman's build? Is there any way to fix it?

Halo feature hasn't been merged yet on Carbon Rom, the Dev are working on that and i hope in the soonest time they shall release it. but there is Pie Control for multi tasking currently on Carbon.
i have tried to add multiple widget to the lockscreen to make it look like CM 11 lockscreen but it didn't work for me.
am not sure if multiple widget is working to be added on the lock screen.

infrared

Tested the rom. It can be used daily now. Only one time camera crashed after taking a photo and entering gallery to check it, camera freezed. A restart solved it. Noticed that infrared is not working at all.

Try activate manually in Settings -> Display & lights -> Pulse notification light -> Add it manually and choose the colour you like for LED :)

    -Carbon ROM 4.4.2 Released


    When i left all i9500 community. Sound quality was very bad (more than bad maybe). Thats why i left, but now i can see light end of the road.. Microphone and speaker stuff in-call looks like almost fixed :) My friends can hear me clearly anyway one thing left (sometimes glitchy) low sound :) i learned some new skills while i was absent here .. So i can try fixing some stuff right now :)
    Maybe we will get full working ROM soon. who knows :eek: :cyclops: :good:

    Yeah Video Recording doesn't work for now...

    [ IN-CALL SOUND FIX ]


    Guys :

    My Turkish Friend shared an information with me :)
    His name is "Emre Akturk"

    WE FINALLY FOUND A FIX FOR SOUND PROBLEMS

    That Information fixes SOUND QUALITY IN-CALL AND ALL OTHER SOUND RELATED PROBLEMS :)
    I TESTED IT WORKS :)
    BUT WE STILL NEED TESTERS :)
    PLEASE TEST AND REPORT IF IT FIXES :)
    I CALLED MY FRIENDS AND THEY SAID "YEAH SOUND IS GOOD NOW :)"
    These 2 apps fixes sound :)

    Viper4Android App (The main app which changes sound drivers)(without adaway app app cant gain su permission i dont know why but after installing adaway and applying adblocking,suddenly app gains su permission. It's weird or magic don't know :) )
    And AdAway app (It probably changes hosts file and you can install drivers after that :) It's weird but it works :) )

    Viper4Android app is very popular around these days but i didnt think it can fix the sound :)
    Anyway My Turkish Friend found that way :)

    All credits goes to Emre Akturk for finding a way to fix the sound temporarily.(Maybe I can include library files from viper4android into device tree in the future with proper credits ( Viper4Android Credits Rules) .So we will get permanent fix after that )

    Links Below :

    Viper4Android (to fix sound :) )

    AdAway (to fix root problem with magic lol)

    PLEASE TEST AND WRITE FEEDBACK MATES :)

    Other Credits goes to viper4android developers : here is main link of viper4android app


    INSTRUCTIONS :
    1- Install Adaway and viper4android apks to your device :)
    2- Open adaway and allow root access :) and touch "download files and apply ad blocking" button.
    And then reboot system
    3- open viper4android and allow for installing drivers :)
    4- allow root access
    5- and then reboot :)
    6- open viper4android app
    7- Touch to activate sound fix(in all tabs headset,phonespeaker,bluetooth device) --Enable (v4a-SpeakerFX is powered on) --
    8- Reboot Your Phone
    9- Make Calls With Somebody :)
