    The installation guide.

    Before you even think about installing this, please make a backup of your current configuration.
    No one is responsible when your data gets destroyed.

    ________________________________________________________

    This guide is for both experienced & new users.


    Here is a video guide by Totallydubbed.



    Here is the written guide.

    0-If you're coming from a Gingerbread (2.3) ROM, follow these steps;
    1. Flash a GB ROM via ODIN to get the GB bootloaders (DarkyROM 10.2 RE is a stable one)
    2. Then follow the guide below.
    1-If you're coming from a Froyo (Android 2.2) or Gingerbread (2.3) ROM, follow these steps;
    1. Have your phone rooted with CWM
    2. Make a NANDROID backup & Titanium backup & backup anything you need or find important on a PC
    3. Download the latest CM9 (nightly) - its the one at the top of the list (ensure it's CM9, and NOT CM7 or CM10) & download DarkyROM v11
    4. Put both ROMs on your INTERNAL SD card
    5. Enter Recovery by switching off the phone, and holding the 3 button combo (VOL UP + Home + POWER)
    6. Once in recovery, flash the latest CM9 (nightly)
    7. As it's trying to flash, it will get into a bootloop - so re-enter recovery (by either holding: VOL UP + HOME + POWER, until it reboots, OR by pulling the battery, then entering it)
    8. Once back in CWM, re-flash CM9 - however this time it will not bootloop, and fully install
    9. Reboot phone
    10. Once the phone has booted into CM9 (give it a good 5mins to boot) - Re-enter recovery, by holding the power button, which will then give you the option to go straight into recovery via the extended power menu on CM9
    11. In CWM Recovery "wipe data / factory reset" and "wipe cache" and in "advanced" wipe dalvik-cache"
    12. Go to "Mounts and storage" and mount all availaible partitions (like /sdcard) -> Don't worry if you can't mount "emmc", it's just the external sd-card
    13. Flash DarkyROM v11.0 Black Edition
    14. Reboot (give it again 5mins to boot)
    15. Enjoy!
    2-If you're coming from any other ICS ROM (or upgrading from DarkyROM v11.0), follow these steps;
    1. Go to the CWM Recovery (Press Volume Up + Home + Power when phone is switched off)
      and "wipe cache" and "advanced >> wipe dalvik-cache"
    2. Go to "Mounts and storage" and mount all availaible partitions (like /sdcard)
      Don't worry if you can't mount "emmc", it's just the external sd-card
    3. Flash DarkyROM v11.0 Black Edition
    4. Reboot
    3-If for some reason you want to change modem, after having flashed the ROM - follow this guide




    *** PLEASE READ ***
    If you your phone is not starting (bootloop),
    read the following quick guide by "BlueFlame" (thank you!);

    From/By Totallydubbed:

    Tips & Tricks:

    -To take a screenshot press VOL DOWN + Power
    -Enabling Wi-fi Direct -> Just enable "Netfilter" in the Semaphore app, and wi-fi direct/tethering will work
    -OC'ing and under-clocking -> Use the Semaphore app
    -To make the phone seem faster/snappier, make the window & transition animation scales to 0.5x under settings -> Developer Options
    -If you have problems with your launcher (like zeam launcher after a TB restore, doubling apps) - then restart the launcher and/or clear data/cache
    -If you want some stock apps, check out this thread - here it will flash some stock apps found in the S3 - There will be some things that would have changed (like settings menu etc), to get back to DarkyROM's look, just flash the backup that would have been made (from flashing this), which will be located on your internal SD card -> under the folder "universalflasher" -> I have tested it myself, and it works as intended
    -To have FM radio, install Spirit FM -> If it means that much to you, then paying for an app like that, is very much worth it.
    -To have additional languages (for the time being), you can install "Swift Key"
    -Download link to the DarkyROM v11 Boot Animation - This is a CWM flashable zip, for people that want it back on ICS.
    -If you want a lower DPI - Use the Nitrality app to edit the DPI settings - The default DPI is 240, although you can go as low as 182 DPI !


    Things that don't work or aren't right:
    Hopefully we could try to fix them, especially with your help - but there are no guarantees

    -FM Radio -> Near impossible to fix
    -CSC Selection window
    -Dialler seems to be having issues with some people -> When you use the T9, and click to call a contact, it FCs
    -Under "Data usage" in settings, the graph has an odd glow
    -Power widget looks a little blurred
    -SD card issue - "space full" -> Explained by Harlekin, here & here
    -When charging the phone whilst off, the battery doesn't change to green, but stays "loading"
    -Phone/dialler problems, when editing settings -> Fix here (Thanks greasyguy)

    Features that might come & Wish list
    These are certain wishes, requests and whatnot from users. Again nothing can be guaranteed.
    -More languages (so far requested: Dutch, Russian, Polish, Finnish, Greek & Romanian)
    -% battery icon
    -More wallpapers
    -Toggle customisation
    -Gamma customisation
    -Lockscreen customisations & more variety
    -ROM Control (like in CM9)
    -Theme chooser
    -Notification counter
    -More keyboards
    -UX launcher from SGS3
    -Power button camera hack


    Cheers,
