Three Musketeers Proudly Present.....

Welcome to the Darkside....
Dark Passion - Unofficial Paranoid Android 2.55


This started as me compiling Paranoid for a few friends over on the Galaxy Nexus and then after a while it was getting modified everytime I compiled it, to add more and more 'Inverted Apps' and its got to the stage now where its all just about inverted.... when one of my friends suggested we should release it on there because it was 'good enough' we thought why the hell not... So now one of the team has a Galaxy Note 2 and he's pestered me till I compiled one for him (only joking man ) so here it is...

As stated this is compiled from source by me. Its just the plain compile, with no cherry picks (yet). We have added various things and taken some out to make it better for us and we will be releasing as is. Now this is made for our little circle of friends and I will not be changing it from how it is now... So please don't ask for the old apps to be added back. If you want a plain standard version of Paranoid, use the official version as that is the benchmark we all try to rise too

I will endeavor to update at least once a week, and update the inverted apps accordingly. Some of the inverted apps I use like Google+ will obviously try to update through Play Store when they are updated. If you update it will revert it to normal, so just simply turn off auto updates for them


Code:
CHANGELOG:

Dark Passion 2.55
Updated all Device and Kernel files to Cyanogenmod (which means s pen gestures :))
Updated Vendor Files
Updated Gapps


Dark Passion 2.54
Paranoid Android Updates
Updated Gapps

Dark Passion 2.53
Initial Release
Removed Apollo Music
Added Awesome Beats modded DSP manager
Added a few Themes

This rom isn't made to compete with any other roms out there. Its just made by us and released to be another option to whats already out there... If you don't like what we've done here, don't use it...

How to install
This guide is based on my install procedure to ensure optimal performance. I am aware that we all have our own preferred methods but I have realised that by following OP procedure its much easier to get help and figure out flashing related issues:
This guide is based on the assumption you have a form of recovery be it CWM and TWRP installed and ready to flash..........I have CWM
- boot into recovery using extended power menu or 3rd party app or 3 button combo home, vol down and power
- in recovery do a nandroid backup from backup/restore menu
- wipe data/factory reset
- in mounts and storage format system
- install zip from sdcard and choose rom zip to install
- install inverted gapps
- wipe cache
- in advanced wipe dalvik cache and fix permissions
- reboot system
I have found that wiping cache and dalvik after installing rom and gapps ensures a clean install on reboot.
This is the exact method I used to install the rom so if u have any issues after using this method then please report it to us. If you used your own method then we may not be able to offer adequate support. thanks for reading and hope you enjoy the rom

looks interesting. so it is completely based on imilkas github? if imilka fixes something it will be here rather soonish and there are the same issues with this rom as there are with his? (for example weird camera behavior for some phones?)

Yeah as its based on his github, it will have the same issues as his rom, but as soon as its fixed in his rom, it should be fixed in this, we've just added a dark feel to the rom and added inverted apps...

Any way to remove the soft buttons since the Note II has 1 hardware button and 2 touch sensitive buttons?

It won't have the soft buttons enabled by default, if you look, the pics are from the Xperia T (Put those on to give you an idea what the rom looks like) which has soft buttons only, like the Nexus, so you shouldn't have a problem Unless you have it in tablet mode

Come on guys don't be shy as this is a solid build. We may not be as popular as others on Samsung scene but we have been around a while as users and building roms privately. We only recently decided to release roms on Samsung scene as we think its as good enough as others on offer right now. We were a bit hesitant at first due to flaming issues on previous devices like s2 note 1 s3 etc but I am sure people will appreciate this.
