Most of you probably know already CyanogenMod 11, the famous ROM for going close to stock Android experience as much as possible. The latest builds are still nightly which means that they are not stable.
Nonetheless, they are enough stable to be used as daily drivers. If you ever experience a problem, the Dev Team probably has probably fixed that already as new CM11 builds get released almost daily.
Carbon is quite a nice ROM. It is based on CyanogenMod so it is going to have all the possible bugs of it. It has all the features that you can expect from a custom firmware. Carbon is updated frequently, addressing and fixing minor
as well big & important bugs.
