Carbon KitKat for the Galaxy Player 5 (revisted)

Hello all, I know it's been awhile and this site has been broken for a long time. After the calamity that killed my other site "", I was not sure if I would get back to Android development but, here I am. I decided to revisit the YP-G70/Galaxy Player 5 and the ROM that I have been running for nearly a year. My custom Carbon KitKat. I've had a year to notice some issues that crop up over long term regular use. Namely, issues with video that cause crash/reboots, and instability when overclocking. So, I restore the stock MFC buffer sizes in the kernel, removed patches related to MFC, increased voltage to 1600mhz and updated to the final source for Carbon KitKat. The result is:

  1. Increased stability with video related operations.
  2. Increased stability when overclocking.
    1. Stable for me at 1600mhz ( Tried serveral times to stablize 1700mhz but could not). Your mileage may vary.
    2. I tested stability by playing "Asphalt Nitro" for several races. Loading and playing this game pegged the cpu at 1600mhz for long periods of time. There were no artifacts or crashes of any kind.

I plan to work specifically on this ROM for awhile so if anyone is having issues with this ROM I will attempt to address them now. Now is the time to speak up and let me know about any problems!
