CarbonROM

Another build, compiled from source. But before I get too far...

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and
 * YOU acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
 */
Now that that's out of the way, this is a build of CarbonROM, using the device tree, kernel and advice from @jrior001 and @crpalmer. The current build is based off the latest CyanogenMod commits (and upstream AOSP) available at the time..

NOTICE:
Final build coming.

As work with Nougat begins, I will need to switch over to the MM bootloader. I won't be going back (downgrading) to check builds. For OctOS, as that is MM anyway, I can begin special builds (reliant on the MM bootloader) once I become established. For Carbon LP, it means the end of the road.

The September Android Security Bulletin should filter down to LP in about a week. Once that is done, I will crank out the final build, test, and post. Device-identity-wise, the only difference between the upcoming build and the one previous is the fix to the "off-path TCP" exploit. The ASB will have other fixes, but to the ROM instead (which is why I prefer to wait for the ASB).

Thank you for all the support. Cheers.
SCREENSHOTS:
WHAT WORKS:
  • Powers on
  • Phone calls and texts
  • Mobile data (later builds)
  • Torch
  • Charges
  • MTP
  • Play Store

WHAT DOES NOT WORK:
  • GPS works, but does not seem to lock on out-of-the-box. Download your country's gps.conf and replace.
  • Doubtful NFC will work, as it does not look like that functionality is built into CarbonROM (missing nfc_enhanced.mk).
  • A random reboot was detected, at which point mobile data was lost. Toggle airplane mode to restore data.
  • As this ROM shares the same device tree as CM, this will share the same flaws. Otherwise, please tell me.

DOWNLOAD:

GAPPS:


INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Download ROM above, and a GApps package
  • Save/push files to your (External) SD card (preferably in the root folder where you can find it later)
  • Reboot into recovery ("adb reboot recovery")
  • Nandroid/Back up device (optional, but highly recommended)
  • Wipe cache and data/factory reset (unless updating from previous CarbonROM version)
  • Install ROM and GApps
  • Wipe Dalvik cache
  • Reboot
  • Enjoy!

None.


Make a new folder for and then initialize the build tree:
Code:
mkdir carbon
cd carbon
repo init -u https://github.com/carbon-z00a/android.git -b lp5.1.1
Copy your Z00A local manifest to ".repo/local_manifests/" (you may need to create the local manifests folder first), and then sync everything:
Code:
cp ../Z00A.xml .repo/local_manifests/
repo sync -f
Complete all the normal steps at this point.

Official release may be a problem, as you would never get one of those from me - I am not affiliated with CarbonROM, I just like building their stuff.

For it to be official, one of their team members will have to own the device and take in the build themselves - in other words - do a lot more than my kanging (all the "work" for this project is in my second post and the commits in my github - all work I borrowed from somewhere else) - which is why I give credit where it's due.

Unfortunately I don't have a fast charger to check (as I have the 2GB model), but can you try fast charging when powered off?

I think that was the recent progress with this ROMs older brother (CyanogenMod).

Fast charging worked for me. I regular charged it and using the round battery indicator the phone charged like 3 % in 5 mins. The battery indicator read the %.

I used the fast charger and when plugged in the battery % changed to "?" while charging. After about 10 minutes I unplugged the charger and it had increased like 20%.

I like the ROM so far but I can't get data working. Sms and calls work but no data. Tried reentering the APN but no luck. Reflashing didn't fix it either. Any ideas?
