Mate why u're so frustrated, the guy just wanted to help, he also posted several updates on Alberto's thread and he didn't mind it, he's a beginner who makes his contribution to devs and community.

FYI... Started having a huge battery drain all of the sudden, 60% gone in under 6hr without any use, turns out the play store had installed the now launcher; I was having a constant wake lock from wlan_rx_wake and I2_hsic, both gone as soon as I froze now launcher and so batt drain is no more.

    -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 :)
