    Very smooth no issues yet . have u found a way to incorporate hroark13 kernel with the working back cam ?...and maybe you can look Into an int2ext script for your rom to expand memory other than that super smooth and stable . good job

    Full wipe via TWRP recovery
    Installed the .zip
    booted up fine, no issues

    Snappy and responsive

    Found Issues:
    app crash: Settings > Carbon Fibers > Device tunables > Vibrator intensity


    Had it running for about 45 minutes now, no issues.
    Texting fine
    Made a call like stock Jellybean
    Vibrations have made my right thigh a bit jealous of my left one

    Going to flash gAPPS, test them out for a bit, then restore my data from Titanium Backup.


    Thanks DM!
    Will report on any other issues that come up

    Its more than just the kernel.. The fixes are not stable yet, but when they are I will merge them into my kernel and tree

    Sounds like an mtp driver.. Go into settings and try mtp again

    Does wifi calling work? Or does wifi calling still not work with any of the 4.4.x ROMs?

    Sometimes, specifically on one of your ROMs. When I make phone calls and plug in my headphones, the person on the other end say they hear a loud noise

    Superuser said I may need to update su binary and switch to supersu. Do I just install supersu or is there something I need to do with superuser first? Awesome rom by the way! Been messing with it for hours :)

    Yo DM, can we get an md5sum check up in here?
    c971f34421225b0131282670ba9b640d Carbon-4.4.4-UNOFFICIAL.DM47021-f6mt.zip

    Formatted 3 times, been having those black screens of death, etc.


    I think the problem has to do with CPU frequency, as I was using Angablade's CM11 v9 for about a month now, and saw that raising the mincpu from like 384MHz to 468MHz (or something like that) virtually eliminated the black screen of dead issue (haven't had it since, can't say it's a fix, but it worked)

    I was using the On Demand CPU governor, NOOP schedule for SD, 1536 cache

    Flashed 2 different gApps on 3 different wipes (first 2 wipes were with a recent full gApps build from PA, last with the CM11 gApps)

    Other issues that came up:
    Switching to quicksettings from notification button was not functional
    home and menu buttons were only functional until after gApps (Both tries)
    back button acted like it was pressed twice

    I think these issues are from a bad download, but I am on such a crap internet connection right now that I can't redownload.
    It took me 10 minutes to even connect here!

    Is it possible to use the colored letter icons that are in the contacts app in the messaging app also? Is there a setting for this that I'm just missing?
