Thanks to your help we now have the machines we need for nightlies. We couldn't have done it without you! Remember, every penny you send to us goes right back into the rom. It's used for hardware, server costs, etc - all the things that help us make Carbon better with every release. Your support means the world to us!

Just about any Google Apps package for JB 4.2.1 should work, though we've provided a link below if needed. Suggested GApps are linked right in goomanager as well. Once Carbon is installed, goomanager will now notify you of future Carbon updates as well!
If downloading via the goo.im page, please be sure to know which device you are using prior to downloading. All files are listed according to the specific device code name. We cannot be responsible for what happens if the wrong files are flashed to your device! We recommend using the goomanager app and searching for a compatible rom if you are unsure.
Please verify that the device listed on the download links below is your device. Do not flash any files if the device does not match!!! Depending on the device, you could end up bricking it! If you do not see your device listed below it is not yet supported.
