Couldn't resolve resource @android:color/... and invisible checkbox

I'm having this problem and I don't know when it started. I didn't have this problem before.

enter image description here

Because this error, the actual box from the Checkbox doesn't show up in Android 5/6 but it does in Android 4. I mean this

I tested the app in different devices and

  • 6.0.1 device -> No box.
  • 5.1.1 device -> No box.
  • 4.0.3 device -> Normal box.

I've tried to use AppCompatCheckBox directly instead Checkbox, but the error and the problem are still there.


compileSdkVersion 23
buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"

defaultConfig {
    applicationId "com.aaa.bbb"
    minSdkVersion 15
    targetSdkVersion 23
    versionCode 15
    versionName "0.1"
    renderscriptTargetApi 23
    renderscriptSupportModeEnabled true

dependencies {
compile fileTree(include: ['*.jar'], dir: 'libs')

compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:23.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:23.1.1'

What I missing? What I did?

It was a style-related problem with Carbon library version 0.12.0. Downgrading to 0.11.0 fix it.
