    In download there is release of yesterday..

  • Emalude says:

    Hi maclaw thanks for this hard work! I’m planning to install this amazing rom but UI make some annoying flicker. Then I think your followers prefere to keep PAC-man daily instead of carbon. Why don’t you ask? I personally prefere PAC features. Thanks!

  • matheus says:

    a lot of flickering

  • tenshixp says:

    Thanks for this update, solve several bugs and add some new features, but is someting wrong with the screen update frecuency, there are flickering when you make scroll.

  • TheaWesome says:

    Flickering and tearing are a HUGE issue in this release…
    What happened?

  • Logistik says:

    What about problems with call Ui and call log. Are there been resolved?

  • shaz says:

    Thanks Maclaw n team.Hats off ! for ur great workI cant find the FM radio app. where can i get one?.I seriously love listening to radio.

    • James Faction says:

      do a search for Spirit Free. There is a free APK available you can download and put on your phone. It’s very basic app but it plays radio just fine, nice and loud too.

  • Abner211 says:

    There is a LOT of flicker while scrolling. I prefer PAC over Carbon, why don’t you make daily releases of it?

  • jhon lee says:

    which version do you recomend carbon, pacman, or cyanogemod , cus i was using cyanogemod before but it was draining my battery so i chenge to the original one, so wich do you recommend?

  • James Faction says:

    Aww. I’m really looking forward to a more useable version of PAC.

    PAC has battery-saving features not available in other ROMs – proper suspend eg turn GPS and 3G etc off when screen is off.

    PAC is also supposed to have per-app DPI/resolution customising features but they seemed to be missing.

    I’ve gone back to more reliable Carbon for now but looking forward to the next PAC release, Carbon uses my battery more.

  • Ambroisie says:

    I can seem to find the PIE Controls Settings in this version…

    Also some flickering while scrolling, and other than that this MAJ is GREAT 🙂

  • fac3man says:

    same here…screens flickers and typical PA settings are missing…would be nice to have at least one release the week 😉
