CarbonRom is an AOSP based rom, which is always compiled with the latest linaro toolchain. The kernel also is compiled with -O3 optimizations for better performance. It also gives you a great option of customization. 
Reasons to go for CarbonRom are:

  • Compiled with Linaro, this will make your phone ultrafast and ultrasmooth

Installation Process:

  • Download the ROM zip from here
Optional: Download any supplemental 3rd-party applications packages for the device you wish to use. (You have to install a 3rd-party app to get the Google apps, like Gmail, Play Store, and Youtube.)
  • Extract the boot.img from the zip, you will need this file for fastboot.
  • Put the phone into fastboot mode:
  • Open a terminal on the PC and enter the following:
fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img
    fastboot -i 0xfce reboot
    • While the device reboots, press the Volume rockers a few times to load recovery.
    • Once the device boots into the ClockworkMod Recovery, use the physical volume buttons to move up and down. On most devices, the power button is used to confirm your selection, although for some devices the power button is used as a "back" button to go up one level, in which case the home button is used to confirm the selection.
