After a couple of days using this rom:

- Alarm has no sound, and it FCs when trying to select an audio file.
- UI seems bigger than LineageOs 15.1 (Instagram is way bigger). Can be fixed changing screen size setting.
- Battery drains a lot faster than on LOS 15.1 (just installed BBS to see why is that).
- Autobrightness seems to misbehave sometimes, had to disable it.

Thanks for your feedback :good:

Here are my comments:
1. This is known issue and will be fixed soon
2. Nothing changed in DPI, might be some specific setting at your end
3. No comment - I won't compare two very different android versions (let alone different ROMs)
4. Works for me (and I assume for others too, as no one complained about it) :)

Are you trying OTG? What's your flashing steps? In details please.

Nitin
Reboot into TWRP
Format Data
OTG flashdrive doesnt read. I have a 32gb (FAT32) with the rom and gapps, so I tried to sideload it and it stops saying my system partition size is too small

Does OTG work by default on mako?

Regarding system partition error, use the repartition script. I replied to you in the repartition thead where you posted your query. Don't know why you are asking that again.

Nitin,
I found the instructions for re-partitioning N4 on that particular thread a little complex. I got a couple of questions for which you may or may not have answers, but hoping that you can still answer them. Sorry for posting this here...may be not the right thread.

1. I understand that re-partitioning script will add 1.5G of space in to a vendor partition. Is it possible to increase that space before running the script? Since you have mentioned earlier that going forward, Carbon Pie ROM will not have the above script included but the user can re-partition the drive to how much ever space is desired. Would you be able to provide a script if the official one does not support changing the drive space?

2. If you have any clue, if I add another 500MB of space to the above size, would you guess that I will be able to install Gapps of slightly higher size (micro perhaps) which will give me Assistant plus Search capability?

I'am already using early March release of Carbon Pie on my system and I hope to do a fresh flash of official ROM when released. I do miss Assistant along with OK Google and thus my questions.

Lastly, can someone who has used the re-partitioning script successfully can provide tips on what not to do during flashing in order to prevent ruining the device?

Thanks.

    When the March release will be available?
    It's already out.

    I do have a question, though. Is it safe to update using the Updater if gapps nano are installed? I mean, the gapps will be there after the reboot or they have to be flashed after?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, I did the repartition and installed the ROM and an earlier version of Opengapps Pico that was less than 100MB. I thought I followed all the steps correctly. But when I powered on the phone the next day, it wouldn't get past the spinning circles boot animation. I tried the boot into bootloader and select Start, but I kept getting the same thing. Any ideas on a solution? Thanks.

    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, build, and use our code at CarbonROM's GitHub...

    What is PAX?
    Our release of Android 10, titled CR-8.0, is codenamed PAX after the latin word for peace and Pax, the roman godess for peace.
    PAX provides you with the features you need while keeping the focus on delivering an elegant, smooth, and well polished experience. PAX delivers a set of unique features, like a systemwide font engine that also allows for applying fonts on user apps while supporting user fonts through custom APKs generated on fonts.carbonrom.org. We are confident you'll love it, and there's many more things to discover ;)

    Disclaimer:
    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! As always, make sure to do backups.

    Support:
    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 addressed it already. Especially if you're even close to new at this.
    2) Read our FAQ, which can be found on our website. Carbon FAQ
    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.

    Let's resurrect our mako... Here is the first Pie carbon build :)

    Download link: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=1395089523397899907

    I've tested all basic things and everything works. I've tested without gapps and root as this is my backup phone. I need you guys to test and find out what gapps/ root works.

    Thanks to @voron00 and @Ziyan for their work on mako :good:

    So finally, the official build is out....

    Get it from here: https://get.carbonrom.org/device-mako.html

    Changelog: https://carbonrom.org/carbonrom/changelog/

    Note that the build size is 385 MBs and that is because of perf vendor and not using brotli compression. However I was able to install ROM and gapps in one go.

    If you get error related to system partition size, then please increase the partition size (Refer XDA threads for how to do that)

    Flashing instructions
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Since Android 10, system partition size needs to be increased - use this or this thread to do that!

    Steps:
    1. Reboot to recovery
    2. Flash ROM and gapps (preferably opengapps pico)
    3. Reboot to system
    4. Enjoy!
