We recommend to install this update. We have improved battery life much!
New release (20140428) of Carbon 4.4.2 for S3 Mini is available!
For flashing KitKat, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

Thank you 😀
Thanks! Downloading now!
Lucio fammi sapere se si avvia u.u
Installato, per ora tutto ok
ciao a voi compagni italiani :D, io lo trovo un pò meno reattivo questo aggiornamento e voi? se volete discutere un pò o se vogliamo chiederci l’un altro aiuto o chiarimenti su rom e roba varia, potete contattarmi qui [email protected] magari ci aiutiamo a vicenda 🙂
Io hoy Aggiorna, e non trovo Lessing tipo do problema,no lag,flickering, la ricezione è ottima e la batteria pure.
Scusami, il T9 mi dà problemi. Se dopo che hai fatto l’aggiornamento vedi meno reattività prova con il wype del dalvik e cache.Se i problemi persistono prova una installazione pulita da 0.
Istallazione pulita è leggero sfarfallio u.u
a voi persiste il bug 1ghz?
Ciao ragazzi quindi anche a voi da problemi di flickering anche con una installazione pulita? A me capita con la cm11 ma penso sia equivalente essendo carbon basata su cm e aggiornata giornalmente. Comunque il bug 1Ghz si comporta in modo strano, flashando alcune release anche con installazione pulita mi compare però poi scompare dopo un po da solo o con riavvio o con wipe dalvik/cache.
io dopo flashato riavvio sempre, non ho nessun bug 1ghz, ma lo sfarfallio in impostazioni e grave, poi se ricevi un messaggio, ci clicchi sopra è rispondi, la notifica non va via..
per ora 2 bug, continuo controllo xD
Io non ho sfarfallio e 1GhZ bug. Per adesso mi và tutto alla perfezione.
Per risolvere lo sfarfallio prova a installare UN altro launcher. Io uso Xperia Z1 port launcher. E non ho nessun problema
io uso il google, ho fatto un ulteriore riavvio e va meglio..Unico bug quello dei messaggi e un pò di lentezza di tastiera xD
Damn…my quota is almost finish..i must wait to download this update tomorrow at my office..cant wait to flash this..tq m&m for your great work.
Ok, installing and test it for 1 intensive hour. Everything works fine. No sort of bug,lag,flickering. No 1GhZ bug.No battery drain. Excellent release.
found a bug ..
After reading the message notification does not go away ..
For now just this.
Google translat 😉
I don’t have it.
what’s your battery life this time.
I used your settings in the former release that is
ART + abyssplug + sio and i activated the battery saver option.
In more than 4hours, not even a percentage dropped from my battery.
No battery down in the last hour
Try with another launcher.
2g / Edge network working ?
what about cm11?
Nice release! Keep it up!
What about overall volume increase? Call and notications volume is too quiet imo. Will there be a change of that in the near future? (especially @ CM11)
Install Viper4androidFX. search in google DAD Developers. Increase all volume.
thanks man! will do that! 🙂
Xda developers. Sorry.
Yeah! Works like a charm! Awesome! Thank you!
If i install carbon over the cm am i lose all alplocation
No. Install a wype cache and dalvik only.
If you have problem go for clean install.
Lucio una domanda, mi sai dire come impostare il risparmi energetico?
Non riesco a trovarlo
da impostazioni carbon, interfaccia
Sinceramente non l’ho mai usato,puoi scegliere in base all’ora o settare la velocità delle CPU per ridurre i consumi.
non sono bravo in inglese, ci sono tante cose ahahah
Con abyssplag e sio sei a posto fidati
Marcin consiglia noop
se non sbaglio*
Non lo sò
ma può danneggiare l’hardware cambiando governatore e i/o?
Assolutamente no!!! Testali pure!
Looks good you guys! Responsive, no flicker…
One little thing:
The “Performance / Advanced Settings / SD read ahead” won’t stick to its value after boot. The box is checked.
Game graphics seem to have hiccups/stutters. Perhaps the display fix for CM will fix it for Carbon too? 🙂
Nevertheless a great Antutu score of over 10100. Previously 9500.
Guys have someone problem wtih vibrations? Phone not vibrate on call, message, notification, 3rd party app… nothing. It is not HW problem cause it vibrate on phone start- samsung logo
My typing has vibration. Haven’t had messages yet.
Tra to wype dalvik and cache. Or flash again
hm and after update from 20140422 volume buttons not working menu and back button not working vibrations still no working 😀 Where is problem?
Try wipe dalvik cache.
I tried wipe all i could. Now i did factory reset and tried clean instal, vibrations works now… It looks like i have to kill another half-day with instaling apps and setings… 🙁 is there any app that can backup all phone setting, apps and other? for time save
Titanium backup is famous for that (at least to backup apps).
The problem I alwas had when i tried restoring my System with Titanium after a full wipe is, that with restoring the backup i always additionally restored the Bugs i had before I did the wipe. So no use in Ttanium. Is there a method for getting around this?
Avoid wifi due to poor signal doesnt work, i mean it keeps cutting wifi when i dont want to. Live streams do not work like twitch or youtube. Other than tgat great release, no bugs neither baterry drain
I will give a piece of advice to everyone who encounters bugs…….
All you need is get into your TWRP recovery…..
do an ADVANCED WIPE and clean up everything except your internal memory and SD CARD.
go to WIPE and make sure the whole system is FORMATTED.
Later, you do a full system reset and wipe.
NOW YOU CAN INSTALL A CLEAN COPY OF YOUR CUSTOM ROM
after installing, make sure you go back and WIPE + format your system (Not from the Advanced section)
NOW YOU CAN RESTART YOUR SYSTEM and you will find no bug.
Greetings from CAMEROON
no wonder i don’t find a bug for me, at least for the moment 4 hours after flashing the rom. i do this procedure all the time.
I haven’t seen a better battery life, and you? Maybe it’s just a mine impression because I haven’t done particular test… But for now, no bug! Thanks you guys, I had waited this update so much before see the feed 🙂
