CarbonROM latest Android 4.4.2 for Nexus 5 | How To Install it

CarbonROM latest Android 4.4.2 for Nexus 5 | How To Install it

Got a Nexus 5 and want to install a custom rom because stock rom is giving poor performance stock ROM does not have features that you want or it is not customisable? If yeah, then yep, you are at right place! Here's a latest custom rom for Nexus 5.
The ROM's name is CarbonROM, so don't call it CarbonROM ROM because it sounds awkward. Anyway, to our senior XDA Member PippoX3 for developing this fantastic ROM. Also the ROM is stable and based on Android 4.4.2 latest Kit Kat OS!
My friend, Rakesh got Nexus 5 and I rooted it for him and flashed CyanogenMod 11.0 custom ROM in his Nexus 5. The performance of this device excellent because of super fast SnapDragon chipset. Anyway, he was enjoying the CM ROM but he asked me to search any other ROM because he found CM boring (I don't know why!) so I was googling and found the CarbonROM and I found it interesting because it was based on OmniROM! Omni ROM is better than CyanogenMod, said my friend. He said he liked the ROM because of these features:

  • Static like call notification: You get calls and hate that full screened calling screen? Even I hate that because of it's size and when I am doing something important, someone always calls me, I don't know why they call me at time only! but in this ROM, you will get a static or card like call 
  • Better and cool multitasking: Simple swiping left or right is boring, right? but in this ROM, here's HTC like multitasking which makes it more cool and fancy.
  • Better and advanced audio settings: Adjust your bass, treble, loudness etc. easily with in-built audio settings.
  • Customizable ROM: You can customize your settings like statusbar, buttons, interface, etc.
  • Stuffed with many applications like: Focal, SuperSU etc.
  • Impressive ActiveDisplay.
  • Kernels supported: Try it with your any custom kernel like: ElementalX, Franco or any other custom kernel you like.
  • Mixed versions: This ROM is mixed version of AOSP, CyanogenMod, AOKP ROM etc. so you can get most of the features in this ROM only!
There are other tons of other features that you won't get in other Custom ROMs, you can explore them easily by flashing this ROM.

Some screenshots of this cool ROM:
