Carbon LP 5.1.1 for the Galaxy Exhibit / Ace2e

Developer's Notes

    • Encryption is fixed and completely automated.
      • I recommend using a pattern because TWRP 3.0.1-0 does have issues with pins and passwords.
      • The data partition is automatically resized. Very small resize only 16k.
      • Encryption happens in place so no data is lost, UNLESS you interrupt it.
    • Fixed the hang at "Finishing Boot".
      • SystemUI was getting killed prematurely. Had to do some experimental hacks. Let me know if you have trouble with Apps and the ANR procedure.
    • Fixed the odd behavior of "Network traffic VS" in Carbon Fibers.
      • Due to some sloppy merging there were overlapping vars with the same name!
    • USB clean up USB mass storage might work, but if it does it's only with the external sdcard. Charge only should also work.
    • Fixed Performance action bar back button crash. (AGAIN)
      • Due to a logistical error, the patch did not make it into the last update as it should have.

    • Fix issue with GPS blob.
      • Installation with out GApps will work.
    • Fixed Performance action bar back button crash.
    • Fixed issue where Carrier mcc/mcn would display instead of carrier name.
    • Cleaned up status bar battery percentage customization. Default is now default and percentage will not automatically display next to icon if charging.

  • CARBON-5.1.1-METICULUS-20160728-0825-codinalte
    • SELinux/sepolicy enabled and a much more proper implementation (IMHO):
      • No longer using patch.
    • CMStats - Removed! I don't like opt-out stats collection even if the data is anonymous!!!
      • Dear CM don't collect info from my device without asking first!
    • About Carbon - Removed!
      • Very buggy on an unoffical device. I did not want to remove it; I just did not want to waste my time trying to fix it.
    • Various Device tree cleanups:
      • Removed old lpm.rc.
      • Removed old custom graphics.
    • Offline Charger:
      • Remove workaround that was using KitKat binaries and brought up to Lollipop.
      • Options in "Extras" now working properly.
    • Carbon Fibers:
      • Fixed SlimActions tile crash (NPE).
      • Fixed a crash when adding a specific shortcut to the lockscreen (class not found).
    • vold:
      • Supported Disk Formats:
        • vfat
        • ntfs
        • ext4
        • f2fs
        • exfat
      • Allow automatic mounting of OTG ext4 formatted drives without security context.
      • Move to sd fix included. No need to flash patch.
    • Developer options:
      • Shown by default.
      • Advanced reboot automatically enabled.
    • CodinalteParts:
      • Sponsors Updated!!! Thank you all!
      • OTG disabled by default and move to "Extras"
        • Can only be enabled once per boot but you can plug multiple times...
        • Sometimes the battery will show charging while OTG is enabled.
        • WARNING!: There may be an issue where the device gets stuck at 1000Mhz all the time after using OTG which will cause battery drain and and the battery temp to go up. A Reboot will return the device to normal. Hope to have this fixed by next release.
      • Randomize WLAN MAC
        • This will set a random MAC address for your wifi card giving you some anonimity.
        • Automatically enables wifi.
        • Sometimes it will work quickly, other times it will take a minute.
        • Reboot to regain your original MAC.
  • CARBON-5.1.1-METICULUS-20160712-0645-codinalte
    • USB HOST/OTG is enabled and works but it only works the first time you plug it in. After that, you have to reboot to get it to work again.
    • ADB acts a little quirky, believing it is connected even with no cable plugged in but seems to work properly non the less.
    • Video recording has been fixed. Thanks to ChronoMonochrome!
    • Offline charger functions not working( need some time...). Offline charger works, just not the extended options in "Extras".
    • SeLinux disabled ( for now ).
    • Root is disabled by default and "Extras" and "Performance" depends on it. Enable it in "Developer options" and give root permissions for those to work properly.
    • Moving apps to the sdcard is fixed ( flash patch via recovery ).
    • SlimActions and SlimShortcuts are not working very well. DO NOT ADD THESE TILES!


  • DoubleTap2Wake
  • Sweep2Wake
  • BLN + Blink
  • PerformanceControl Integration
  • USB HOST/OTG (Experimental)
  • New T599N baseband T599NUVAOH1 now supported.
