Carbon Tweaks Gives International Note Users Total Tweak Control
Sometimes, applying tweaks to an Android device can be a pain. With a plethora of installation methods from flashing via recovery and manual build.prop editing to activating scripts via ADB or the Terminal Emulator, finding a tweak and using it can be cumbersome for some. Additionally, once you start going on the admittedly addictive frenzy of putting scripts, tweaks and mods on your device, it’s hard to remember which ones you even installed sometimes. For those carrying the International Galaxy Note, there’s an app looking to solve all of these problems and more.
Carbon Tweaks by XDA Forum Member carbonassassin looks to fix this by giving users the ability to pick and choose which tweaks, script, and mods to apply to their phones, and giving users the option to remove them as well. It also carries a few other fun options such as backing up your init.d so users can save configurations they like, and it includes some popular mods such as Ultimate RAM Manager and the Dolby Sound Library. There are only a couple of issues, but they don’t have anything to do with performance. The browser will open to download the various tweaks for users and the shout outs list isn’t updated. The shout outs list will be updated with the next version, though, so those seeking credit need only be patient.
