The hard work you must have put into this ROM really shows. It is almost magical, as corny as that might sound.

I'm having the same external SD storage problem as I had using latest Ancora CM11 build. For example, I cannot make a Titanium Backup for any application. Det0xx informed me this is related to AOSP upstream. (I suppose one can work around this problem by using internal storage.)

I wonder, does everybody else have this same problem using external storage? I wonder if I need to do something additional, like reformat my card, flash a different kernel, or change from using TWRP 2.7 to something else.

Another comment regarding TWRP: I was going to do a clean install of this DarkCM ROM, but when I did the wipe in TWRP 2.7, I got a "failed" message for /data.

Any comment is appreciated. And all the ROM creation work is much appreciated, too.

Titanium Backup is also a bust for me, nothing good on it works besides being able to open up, but that's no biggie I keep backups on my laptop then just transfer them over when I flash new roms.
