Installation:

0) If you already have Safestrap installed and enabled, skip to step 7. Otherwise, start at 1.
1) Remove any bootstraps that you currently have installed.
2) Install Droid3Safestrap.APK (DOWNLOAD HERE)
3) Tap "Install Recovery"
4) Turn off device, enter CWM Recovery
5) Make a backup if you are not already using Safestrap
6) Toggle Safe System to ENABLED using the Safe System Menu (near the bottom of the main menu).
7) Wipe data/cache
8) Wipe data/cache again
9) Install rom .zip from SD card
10) Reboot into DarkDroid, then boot back into recovery and install the power menu patch.
11) Reboot back into DarkDroid, done!

FOR XT860/GSM USERS:
1) Follow steps above, then:
2) Go to /system/ and open build.prop to change "ro.mot.phonemode.vzwglobalphone=1" at line 149 to "ro.mot.phonemode.vzwglobalphone=0"
3) Then, place THIS file into /system/lib/ and overwrite the current file.
4) Reboot, should work!


To-do:
#) Car dock rotation
#) A couple .9 images


Troubleshooting/problems:
#) Navigation/Music does not rotate when in car dock


DOWNLOAD:
Download, changelog, and credits can be found on my DarkDroid website.


Please post any problems you come across.
This is also my first ever attempt at anything like this. I think it turned out quite nice.

Hey just a heads up on your download link. When you click it, the page fails. It looks like it says "http://https://"....
Easy fix to get to download, just had to take off the "http://".

Looks sweet. Downloading now.
