Excellent ROM..
I encountered no problem with Google Play Store or other Google apps..

Only problem I faced is
Messaging tone cannot be changed..
When I set up a voice call tone, same tone is being played for messages.
Other notifications like that of whatsapp are playing specified tone in settings but not the messaging app..

Kindly help regarding same..

Otherwise Great ROM..

    Instructions for flashing the ROM

    you must have ctr recovery
    take necessary backups

    1. reboot to ctr
    2. wipe system,data,cache,dalvik cache ( or you can use preflash wipe option - it automatically wipes system,data,cache,dalvik . so no need for seperate wipes)
    3.install the rom

    note
    xposed and gravity box are inbuilt in the rom :-

    Fantastic work brothers! I have been using DarkL for almost an year now, most stable and beautiful for me :)

    Few bugs (can live with)
    - Can't really see the fonts in the dialpad due to dark on dark color pattern
    - some issues in UI (like messages, press and hold, the trash bin icon at the bottom is not visible, but clicking in the appropriate place will delete msgs anyway)
    - some places (some toast notifications, lists) have dark on dark color scheme, so the fonts are not really visible :)

    but none of them a show stopper, thank you for this amazing ROM

    Also, if you can make a light theme and have an option to switch between either (dark and light), it would help ppl like me who like a temporary change in UI without having to flash a new ROM all over :)
