carbonrom-galaxys4-android5.1.1

Carbon ROM has been around for a quite awhile, we’ve covered Carbon ROM since the Jelly Bean days and it’s back in full force with latest Android 5.1.1.

For those of you looking for fast performance and great customization options on the latest Android 5.1.1, definitely check out the latest Carbon ROM, available for GT-i9505, AT&T SGH-i337, Canadian SGH-i337M, and T-Mobile SGH-M919.  For AT&T, you must have unlocked bootloader to install this ROM.

You can find all of Carbon ROM’s customization options under CarbonROM Fibers in Settings where you will be able to fully tweak your status bar, hardware/soft buttons, interface, and more.  For navigation extras, you can use SlimPIE controls, Gesture Anywhere, App Circle Bar, and App bar.

Overall, Carbon ROM is an excellent choice for those of you looking for clean, pure Google custom ROM that’s not filled with Samsung TouchWiz bloatware.  If you want to enjoy the latest and great Android OS, Carbon ROM is definitely a great choice so definitely give this a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!  You can also try the Dirty Unicorns ROM, which is excellent.

Download Android 5.1 Gapps(DO NOT USE older Gapps, you will FC!!!)

*Note – For AT&T SGH-i337 or Verizon SCH-i545, you CANNOT USE SAFESTRAP, you must have CWM or TWRP recovery installed already!

Make sure you are using CWM v.6.0.4.3 or higher to install Android 5.0+ Lollipop ROMs! Also you can use TWRP v2.6.3.3 or higher.  You can update your CWM recovery using ROM Manager app on Play Store or TWRP Recovery using Goo Manager on Play Store.  If having trouble, you can update manually, see our CWM/TWRP Recovery for Galaxy S4.  For AT&T or Verizon with Loki, see How to Update with TWRP v2.8.4.0!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
