Welcome to APOCALYPSE
After the success of MIRACLE V4, now comes... APOCALYPSE! Based on latest CyanogenMod 7.2 RC3 by vo-1, APOCALYPSE was modded in order to satisfy the majority of users concerning both looks and performance. It wasn't an easy task as the level since MIRACLE V4 was already set high. APOCALYPSE exceeds that level! And for that, a lot of people contributed, some with their desire to help by making things and some with their own mods in other threads from which I took the opportunity to adapt their work in this rom. So please read the thanks section at the end of this post to find out who those people are. To end this, I suggest you read carefully what I write cause I do this in order to help you and save you time for asking questions. Welcome to APOCALYPSE!

=================================================

CAUTION: All things written here were made to help you install the rom and extras the right way and also point at bugs or other things. So please read so as to avoid asking questions that already have answers. Keep thread clean!

3. You can also install QuickPic and use it as your default image viewer and use Wallpaper Wizardriii for croping portrait walls
4. To mount USB after applying layouts, you need to press image on screen... there's no button
5. ICS Theme version is 032-build-408
6. ICS Layouts version is 012
7. acpather v5.31 was used to patch apps and framework

9. A tutorial of how to create an ext4 mount script with link2sd is attached in this post
10. New (10.06.12) S98system_tweak for AE. For those already installed it, replace in system/etc/init.d and select full permissions. Thanks to mxxmxxm for pointing that out!

=================================================

Tested and working great

-- Battery life seems very good!

=================================================

Bugs and issues
-- If too many notices on status bar then will overlap centered clock
-- Even though Sansation font was created for multi-language support and complex writting, you may experience some weird characters FIXED
-- Sometimes when pressing search in Play Store or address bar on browser, app dissapears and only keyboard shows. If you start typing app will appear again
-- Low screen backlight when booting phone but brightness gets back to normal level after a few secs. It's a FireKernel issue and maybe this was done to save battery
-- On 16.06.12 update torch is working but not in status bar as a power widget.

Extras Section

1. iPhone Portrait Walls
2. more walls at my thread
3. Xperia S Theme for MDPI (both original and transparent - I tested that and looks very good)
4. XPERIA S Widgets (don't try the On-Off Tools cause some fuctions don't work. Weather widget is awesome.)
5. PDroid PATCH + RESTORE for APOCALYPSE by gbueno6
6. Show me your support. If you like this rom, just copy paste the following code in your signature
HTML Code:
[URL="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1700749"][IMG]http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc150/gorgopodaros/Untitled-2-6.png[/IMG][/URL]
7. XPERIA S Wallpapers
8. Cosmic Flow Live Wallpaper
9. CM7.2-RC3-APOCALYPSE-BAREBONE-12.06.12 mms, camera, real player and email are gone but beats+alsa+audiofx, torch and livewallpaperspicker are still on.
10. ICSApocalypse-Original Theme Still 90% transparent windows with blue frame/white glow but no transparency in all other aspects. You have to push it manually to system app and change permissions to rw-r--r--
11. Sansation-Regular Edited by itasoulas. This is the DroidSans.ttf font. To be used for those download rom prior to 12.06.12. Rename the file to DroidSans and replace the one in system\fonts, change permissions to rw-r--r-- and reboot. That should fix weird characters issue for most languages
12. To crop portrait walls search Google Play Store for "Crop Wallpaper" app. Does not run in background. Best ever
13. APOCALYPSE-19.06.12 + ICS Layouts ==> My personal mod of this rom ALL IN ONE .rar file
