I have decided to build an Unoffical build of CarbonROM specifically for the t0lteatt/Samsung Galaxy Note 2 I317. Information about CarbonROM can be found in the official thread at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2640030 or at the CarbonROM website at https://carbonrom.org/. This is just a build from the official source at https://github.com/CarbonDev with a few of my own edits to allow it to build for the t0lteatt device tree. If you have any questions, or issues, please post them here, or try the official build available at the CarbonROM website at https://carbonrom.org/downloads/?d=t0lte/nightly. I am not a developer or maintainer, but I will try to assist you with any errors you may encounter.

I would just like to say thank you to Team Carbon for developing such a great ROM, everyone who have contributed to the project, and all other great projects which may have a part in making the ROM what it is.

Flashing instructions:
  1. Download both the ROM and a GAPPs (I use PA Gapps, but other GAPPs such as Slim Gapps will likely work as well)
  2. Reboot into recovery.
  3. Full wipe: Wipe cache, dalvik, wipe data/factory reset, clean to install a new rom.
  4. Flash ROM and GAPPs.
  5. Reboot into system.
  6. Enjoy your new Carbon experience.

Downloads:
ROM: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=21020
PA Gapps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2397942

Have a good one!

I haven't been able to find any definitive reports of problems with flashing from TWRP 2.8. I use Philz and haven't had any issues with flashing this, or any other ROM. Have you had this issue with any other ROM? Have you tried flashing the official t0lte CarbonROM? My only other thought, right off hand, is to try a different recovery, but I know that isn't always such a good option. I'll keep an eye out for a solution and I'll let ya know if I find anything. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Have a good one!

This ROM is fantastic! On the official builds any theme would cause my System UI to crash multiple times, but not this one!
If you're looking for any requests/suggestions, I have a few:
-Search in Settings
-Disable Menu and Back button haptic feedback when they are disabled (I like it on the navigation bar)
-The battery icon doesn't seem to want to work with Tinted Status Bar Fix: Use Flat Style Colored Bars
-Apps like Reddit Sync don't take account for the navbar, and have the comments behind it, keeping me from reading/interacting
I think that's it! Thank you so, so, much for getting me a great daily driver!

Thanks for that synopsis. One of the main reasons I stopped using carbon was because of system ui crashing. About the boot this piece up! Thanks!

In Samsung the word Note 2 is pronounced t0lte.

I cant remember if it has an option or not but the ringtone only rings once then vibrated till i pick up i want it to ring always is there and option

Carbon source bug I believe...
Try downloading a ringtone of your choice using zedge...or any other free ringtone app....then set your new tone under settings...

That should fix you up...

I usually delete the on board tones anyway...since most of the choices are rather plain to me...

Good luck....g

Looks like this may be a one off build. Team Carbon is currently working on porting Lollipop to their various devices, so they've put a code freeze on any KitKat commits other than bug fixes. Only 4 merges were made prior to the code freeze, but these merges don't seem to be overly important for our devices, so they'd likely not be noticeable even if a new build was made. Also, there are reports that subsequent changes to repositories may have broke the build for KitKat, at this time, anyways (I can probably fix this in my build, if necessary). I'll keep an eye on gerrit for any useful bug fixes being merged, but until that happens (if it happens), I'll likely not do anymore builds for KitKat.

Have a good one!

I guess I was wrong about a one off... My final unofficial build of CarbonROM has been uploaded. Admittedly, this build is a minimal update and you may not notice any obvious changes, but there may be some changes behind the scenes that may correct an obscure issue, or not. As always, if you have any issues from a dirty flash, please try a clean flash before asking for help. Thank you.

My chrome keeps opening in floating mode. Is there any way to disable this or control which apps show up on floating mode. Running latest carbon ROM with stock google gapps package

It would appear that this is supposed to be a "feature" included by Google. In order to remove the "feature", Google's devs would need to decide to remove it. There's been a fair few theories on how to disable the "feature", but none of them seem to actually work, so it would seem if we decide to continue using Chrome, we'll have to deal with it for now.

I just used xfloatingwindows from xposed and black listed chrome and it seemed to work. One more question and I think I've got everything all set. At first I set an app to open when I swipe it left in the notification panel. How do I disable that feature? Overall this ROM is pretty damn smooth, I like it a lot

Been searching and would like to potentially give this ROM a try. Can't find out or not, does this have heads up notifications?

Just installed, so far so good. Running quite nicely. Going to watch for how my battery life is, but otherwise really liking it.

One quick question, is there an advanced reboot menu on the power menu, to allow for rebooting normally or into recovery?

    One more final build... This build just disables windowed mode, so that Chrome will open fullscreen. I believe Chrome Beta has fixed the windowed mode, so it should be fixed in the next release of Chrome, but until then, this update should take care of it, as well as if they choose to screw up with windowed mode again in the future. As always, you should be okay with a dirty flash, but please do a clean flash if you have any issues. Thank you.
