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 at, build, and use our code on CarbonDev GitHub.

Follow Carbon ROM's Gerrit and Carbon ROM's Changelog to keep yourself updated with feature additions.

We would like to thank CyanogenMod for their device trees, framework/settings mods and their code that was incorporated into this project. We also extend our gratitude to the devs whose code that we have incorporated. Proper authorship has been maintained and can be viewed on our repository.

Special thanks also go to Slim Rom for some of their features, PA, AOKP, and anyone else we may have borrowed commits from that hasn't been mentioned here. If you feel you have been unfairly left out, please - let us know.

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! If you have questions, ask your fellow users.




WHAT IS WORKING?
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • RIL (Calls, Mobile Data, SMS)
  • Sensors
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Everything else not listed under "Known Issues" section

KNOWN ISSUES
  • Inbuilt screen video recorder doesn't work.
  • bt bins keep running like bccmd which causes over heating some times (this can be fixed by deleting /system/etc/init.bt.sh but will disable bluetooth)

(Bugs reported by users will be updated here after they are confirmed. I may ask for a logcat to fix the bugs.)





NOTES

- If you are not able to connect to your service network provider and can't make calls etc, try flashing the modem from your region specific firmware through ODIN. Search the threads in Galaxy Grand forums and you'll find instructions there.

Will install and try this ROM as soon as possible. I hope the ROM in its current state is better than your CM12.1 ROM, as the working RIL is one major reason to switch this ROM. That said, I hope to see more updates on the CM12.1 ROM too.

Thank you for releasing another stable ROM for our device, androidlover!

Alright, I got me some screenshots. One thing I liked enough about the ROM is the ability to show a navbar, so I decided to also take screenshots of the functionality. (which can be turned on and off on the fly without any reboots, and apps will scale properly in the same session!) So far the battery is a bit so-so, though it may be because of Google Play Services taking its toll on the device. Can be better than weritos' CM11 but I found it to be not as good as androidlover's CM12.1. Other than that, it seems to be a KitKat ROM with more tricks up its sleeves than Cyanogenmod 11.

Haven't used much of it to formulate my impressions of it. Yet.

Changes made in "performance" (after activating developer options) are not executed. Other than that it's an almost perfect ROM. Other than that it's a perfect ROM :D lots of customization options.

    Which version of GAPPs should I download?

    Open GApps 4.4 Pico works with this ROM.

    EDIT: The battery of this ROM seems to be good, actually. All these hours went by, yet the drain was just 18%.

    I am not able to receive anything over Bluetooth. Can someone verify this as a bug? Is there any workaround?

    I managed to send myself a file from my Windows 10 computer to the ROM. In the bluetooth settings on the ROM I set it to "Accept all file types" and the visibility time out to Never.

    It does not work in rev2 because the installer automatically formats the system, and TWRP does not recognize the partition in REV2.
