XXLPQ -> duh
LPJ CSC -> international
SU (you need to download Superuser from Market)
Nova Launcher (as primary, TWLauncher is on the SD for install with DarkyOTA)
Lots of apps moved to SD (67) if you miss anything, feel free to install them back using DarkyOTA
more small stuff
Do factory restore (data wipe) through CWM before flashing
Most issues come from the updated boot loaders since Samsung started releasing ICS... It's the sole reason that I released a Odin custom ROM for KL1 (on darkyrom.com) So people that did flash stock ICS from Samsung have a way of getting older, better, custom-friendly boot loaders and a stable ROM to begin with. CF-Root and the kernel that I released have little in difference. We do the same exact thing (well I do not include Superuser or DarkyOTA in it). Difference is just in the way we accomplish them I also make sure that I have /data and /system mounted when the recovery boots and that is all. It's a hacked stock kernel
You can not boot because Samsung does not want you to boot custom firmwares! Even my Jig stopped working with ICS Bootloaders and I could no longer clear my counter...
Your "Weather on Lockscreen" FCs because it has been removed and it has been explained how to be brought back.
You might need to flash twice because the first time the installer was not able to properly mount /data or any other partition for a good install, but the kernel should have flashed alright, so the second run will go fine (I will work on that)
Commenting that you do not have root with this ROM is not serious! It's properly stated in the OP that you need to get Superuser from Market! Along with DarkyOTA, to have access to the uninstalled apps.
If you flashed v2 and still have Chrome... I have no clue... the app is not in v2.
This ROM is nothing but a Stock deodexed rooted and cleaned ROM.
For those who do not follow me elsewhere, I release primarily Base ROMs and kernels, that are just like this one, or in Odin package that give a good experience and nice battery life without all unnecessary Samsung services and apps without putting many extra features. Those get developed by the rest of the Darky team and get distributed through the OTA app, so you can make almost anything out of this base release.
USB access has changed since ICS and you have to go much deeper to get it working
For USB: Disconnect USB Cable -> Settings -> More... -> USB utilities -> Connect Storage to PC -> Turn USB Debug (if on) -> Connect USB Cable -> Turn on USB storage
Yeah... it's lengthy
