For this week’s Nexus 5 ROM of the Week, check out the latest Carbon ROM along with Franco kernel for the ultimate Carbon Fibers customization experience and overclocking up to 3Ghz!
Based on latest Android 4.4.2, Carbon ROM has been well-known in custom ROM development for their tenacious updates and clean/simple ROM Control called Carbon Fibers (in Settings).
You may not find every possible customization on the Carbon ROM but you will find plenty to work with. With Carbon Fibers Settings, you will be able to customize all of your favorite features like your Volume buttons for music control, tweak your lockscreen with Active Display, lockscreen notifications, set custom lockscreen wallpaper, customize up to 8 slider targets, enable SlimPIE Controls, add Screenshot/screen recording to Power menu, and some more.
Coupled with Franco kernel, Carbon ROM really hits the spot with 2.726Ghz overclocking, which I feel gives you some great performance without sacrificing your battery life. If you haven’t tried Carbon ROM and still on stock ROM, definitely give it a test drive over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!
