    WOW!!! This is amazing! I can't believe you got carbon rom with so many things working. Can't wait when this gets ported to t-mobile/metro pcs. You were right when you said all you need is one kk rom to get a flood of others :D

    I've been testing lte. It seems to be much more stable in this rom. :D I'm going to test it through tomorrow to see if it stays stable or if I need to tweak somthing.

    Yeah it seems that Carbon Rom is sometimes more stable than CyanogenMod for many of the other phones that I've seen it made for.

    I uploaded a new version that has lte/4g working. I'm not 100% satisfied with it. Please report back how it works for you. Especially phone calls and text messaging. Mms didn't work for me with it.

    If you're in a 3g area, it may not work for you without special instructions.

    I especially need to know if phone calls work. On my phone, it set it to lte/gsm which is not correct. I had to manually set it to lte/cdma. Phone calls didn't work for me when it was set to lte/gsm.

    Also, you may have to set your apn for your carrier. Virgin/sprint/boost/fredompop, etc..

    I'm not 100% set on the eri.xml file. It's more virgin centric. I may go with a more generic version. Please report back, I may need to make a few changes.

    What exactly is it that's causing issues with the camera and torch? I didn't realize how much I used them until I didn't have them.

    Great job on the port, for some reason I don't have root? I can still su in a shell but link2sd and such don't want to play nicely. Also I think the RIL is causing issues, Whenever it loses signal it crashes libc and whatever app I have open at the time gets reset. I experienced similar issues with the t-mobile cm11 ROM when toying with 4g.

    If we knew that we'd have it working ;) My guess is it's a kernel issue as /dev/camera/ (on the cm11 rom, I haven't checked on this version, I assume it's using basically the same kernel though?) seems to be empty, but some of the lib files are throwing errors as well, so it could be a bunch of things.

    This rom doesn't have root. You can add the su binary in the shell.
    I don't think it would work. I think that only works in stock roms and the cm10 rom as it has the same file setup. The kitkat roms have an alternative folder structure.

    It is the same kernel as the cm11 rom. The ril maybe unstable but I haven't found an alternative that works for lte yet. The 7/19 version is more unstable. The phone will occasionally reboot. I've even noticed a "black screen of death" System error screen.

    So basically you just confirmed what I figured. It's switching your phone to lte/gsm instead of lte/cdma.

    Go into phone and dial *#*#4636#*#*
    Phone information >
    Change LTE/GSM to LTE/CDMA

    I need to fix that. It's a build.prop issue

    Actually, did you set the apn?
    Go to settngs > Mobile network settings > Access Point Names >
    select your apn. for virgin mobile, it's the second from the bottom. Select the circle to the right. If your outside it maybe hard to to see.

    Ok, I think I have it pretty stable now. It correctly goes to LTE/CDMA now. When it can't access LTE, it defaults to 3G. Then it jumps back to LTE when it can as it should. It seams very stable to me.

    I'm compiling a new version with the changes now. Afterwards i'll focus on the camera. The cm11 virgin/sprint rom won't be updated until the camera issue is resolved. Or, I give up. :p

    I uploaded the lte fix. It's allot more stable. 3g works again as well. It's got a few small touch screen tweaks.
