Behind a "DarkyROM V3.0" for i9300 when coming from the good old i9000 equipped with DarkyROMs I think not only me would expect a little more than a mod collection included in a cleaned stock rom not themed and with stock kernel. That is the point. When you know the story behind DarkyROM and what happend in the near past you can at least suspect what is going on. Its a pitty.

I had DarkyROMs on my S1 long time and liked it much especially the OTA updates/mods functionality and supported the team with donations and I would love to see such quality DarkyROMs for S3 too.

Its not that this DarkyROM V3.0 is not a ROM that is useable but not this spectacular especially the old DarkyROM users certainly would expect more from a DarkyROM V3.0.

There is little to no need to mod the excellent stock rom the S3 comes with.
Out-the-box I was super happy with the S3, whereas with the S1 it was a disaster.
Long story short, for the time being HDtechvideo, Jag, and myself have taken the stock look and feel - as it is not only fast, performs well, has great battery life, but it's also what WE WANT in our S3's.
I don't need any fancy things atm - I'm quite happy with what we made - as simple as it is, and with the certain mods, by certain users (like wanam) we have a very simple ROM.

You either hate it or love it.
Except, unlike Marmite, you don't have to buy it.

TotallyDubbedHD suggested this rom to me, And it has been amazing so far, Much better than the stock rom.. :D

Great buddy!
Glad you are enjoying it - crackle free, and close to good old stock!

PG, it is quite remarkable it has to be said.
Haters across the net, or trolls that have nothing better to do.

Would you mind if I took the Hacre approach and ripped each and every troll apart?
I do enjoy doing that on YouTube, quite a lot.

Love the Rom but flashlight from pull down menu is green when not active and white when active this is backwards. Is there a way to record the calls automatically and a better way to access the recorded calls?

Sent from my GT-I9300 using xda app-developers app
