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 :)

Awesome ROM but...

This ROM is truly awesome, but I am facing a nasty issue for the past few days. I used the phone with one sim card till now, but when I'm trying to put 2 sim cards, the second card doesn't connect to the network. It says "Can't connect to network right now, please try again later". I desparately need to two sim cards. Please help!

    :DInstalled dark l
    Lots of flaws
    1.playstore not working
    2.default sms app is chomp sms, It's not supporting dual sim
    3.some quick toogle icons are blurry
    4.allignment issue in recent apps, expanded status bar
    5.no offline location, voice unlock, text to speech
    6.L theming is good, but not excellent

    Only good thing I noticed is improvement in battery backup

    So wait for a stable release and then install
    Playstore no probs i am facing and for alignment and quick toggles luking blur fix.. Use this..
    Only prob i am facing is multitasking windows.. Apps luk pixalted thats all.. And insteas of dark l themeing.. Original android l themeing wud luk epic ..
