Curious about this, I have always heard this was an awesome ROM but haven't seen it for the N6. I've been watching and have to say this seems to have popped up out of the clear blue - was not expecting Carbon, official or unofficial, anytime soon for this device. Anyway, I looked through github and saw OmniSwitch in there, but no mention of it in the features list. Does this first build have a working OmniSwitch by chance or did that not quite make its way in there? Everything else I could possibly want to know appears to be in the features list.

Nah, no omniswitch yet, will be added soon. Team Carbon are backporting all the features from previous releases, so it'll take some time.

    Please do not ask for ETA's. I develop ROM's in my free time.
    Since these are unofficial builds, you guys should get updates whenever something new or some bug fix is added.

    Cheers!

    Updated op to link to official carbon builds.

    I won't be doing any more builds.

    Had a great time with you guys while I was here ;)

    Okay, I've decided that, I will be making 2 versions of this ROM, until xposed gets a stable release.
    It's night time here in my time zone, so I'll be making the optimized build tomorrow.

    Regards
