  • tenshixp says:

    OK, looks like a “stable release” so, please its time to PAC update.

    • Lexion says:

      But look at that M & M does not forget any of the Roma.
      The carbon is used in other roms like (omni, pac, slim), so it has precedence just like cm has precedence over the carbon.
      M & M regulate the release, I am sure that soon there will be releases for the other.
      Google trasalte 😉

  • patze85Patze says:

    hm do you always use their latest sources? according to their changelog they’ve added the ability to resume and stop downloads, but i can’t find that feature in your version of the rom

    I encountered this problem: if I set up a VPN is asked for a password to unlock the screen …. but if you restart your phone after entering the pin Sim is impossible to insert the pin unlock screen. the keyboard does not respond.
    sorry for English.

  • maves23 says:

    As i very new and I use this one as first OS, i have the problem that the batterie drain is very high.

    Android OS uses 54% of batterie. Any idea? Or should i choose another version.

    Is there a Version which i stable and uses low batterie?

  • Johnie says:

    I have serveral reboots while charging. 🙁

  • Dušan says:

    I like it 😀 Way better than CyanogenMod 11 :DFaster boot, more customazation, less bloatware less bugs and it needs less battery to boot (about 4%, and CM 11 needed about 26%…). I just think that battery usage is bigger when doing nothing. Any advices how to boost battery life ?

  • Kenzy says:

    Please can someone give me a link to download the ORIGINAL MILESTONE VERSION OF CARBON ROM. I need to redownload it and use it for an experiment. Thanks

  • Viorel says:

    I know ppl asked for this like every time, but whats the best solution to resolve the clock freeze issue? This morning at 7AM, my clock was 5AM and changed when after 2 sec, alarm started to ring, and also saw that i missed mu 6 AM alarm. I disabled Cclock app from app setings, what else can i do? I got i9180 atm with carbon.

    • Viorel says:

      Also just realized that 3g dont works, and im on Vodafone ROU network.

    • suhi SLO says:

      I don’t have that problem or with reboots. But I do have problems with extended desktop. It shuts down the games and apps and restarts the screen. It stops responding for like 5-10 seconds. Battery life is OK but could be better, so far no reboots of the phone. Wi-Fi working fine and so is 3g, GPS is fast and accurate. Front camera makes somewhat blurry pictures….

  • SDK SMD says:

  • ernestland says:
