    Just FYI, these are unofficial builds. The Carbon team has not yet started releasing official builds. Let us know how good these builds are, can't wait for the official versions!

    Just installed it. So far, so good. I get a force close whenever I try to open device tunables under system settings, carbon fibers. Other than that, everything seems smooth and fast. I like the lockscreen options, and the pocket mode.

    I installed with MopedRyder's APN fix 2, PA's kk gapps, and the qualcomm optimized dalvik patch.

    4g and MMS work perfectly.

    The carbon threads force closes and adding shortcuts to lock screen does not work but otherwise IT IS SO COOL! I can not wait for a stable release. I have no plans of changing this build as mms works and 4g works with fix 2.

    Camera seemed stable. Took pictures with and without flash and no problems with camera or going into gallery. Using hangouts and mms flawless on 4g with fix 2.

    1/20 update is up. It is fantastic. Fixed a ton of things, including the device tunables fc. What a great ROM!

    All the little bugs are fixed in this build. I can now add apps to lock screen short cuts, as well as carbon fibers work. I have yet to find anything wrong with it, and along with moped fix 2 and chomp sms I feel like a have a brand new super phone.
