Gapps : Full Gapps Micro Gapps

Important :

1) If you change the kernel, without repacking it properly for this CarbonRom , you'll broke the RIL
2) I will not give any support to peoples that just report bug without a full description/logcat of the problem

Third :D i always liked carbon rom when i had the SGS3. & 4.2.2 i must give a try. As 4.2.2 is much more stable than kitkat for our beloved y300. Period.

As you compiled the rom & using it. Any performance improvement against expert v4?

Compiled by source

so the notification bug can be still there, did you apply the fixes for audio and led deepsleep from fonz?

So, A small feedback from my side.

Rom is just flying after flashing a custom kernel. I'm pretty satisfied now. Before it expert v4 was my first choice for stability reasons.

A small request is if you merge a commit for Quick unlock. It'll a +10.

Btw Who can say it's not kitkat but a Carbon ROM :D Thanks luca. Keep up the good work :highfive:

What is quick unlock

Tomorrow build with video working

Quick unlock right after entering the correct code. Like on cyanogenmod. Plus i can't pull down the Quick settings from the right & notification panel from the left. If you add these two things. Rom is clearly superior to Expert v4. IMHO. Edited by noobSU
