Darky is releasing new versions of this baby so quickly, its hard to keep up.
Anyway, my installation experience was very good as I was already on v7.
Here’s what to do: grab the no wipe edition from
Darkys v8 Wipe (Use this if you have problems with Force Closes (FC’s))
Put the zip on your internal SD, reboot into Clockwork Recovery (long press power button when the phone is turned on, and you will see Recovery)
Now select “Install zip from SDCARD”
[use volume keys/rocker to move up and down, and the POWER Button to select].
Select “Choose zip from SDCARD” and then select the ROM zip file (Called something like “DarkysvX.xsigned.zip).
Then choose “Yes.”
