Please take out"install clock work mod recovery" from installation instructions as to not confuse people. CWM is built into our kernel, we don't install it separately.

---------- Post added at 08:42 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:13 AM ----------

OK...after flashing...I get a black screen phone won't boot... kernel issue...so what I did was to reboot into recovery, flash kernel cleaner, then flash siyah 4.33...that worked...

So the kernel included with this ROM needs to be fixed. Other than that so far its nice ROM..

This ROM is awesome!! Ive been using it for over a week and it's so smooth and reliable! One thing I noticed though, when I send an image via text/mms it turns the image sideways. Anyone else having this issue or did I drop my phone one too many times?
