    Anybody out there tried it. I just rooted my phone and wondering which custom rom to flash. And I'm still pretty much a noob when it comes to this type of stuff.

    Its a very nicely packaged rom, plus its based on the latest jpy build, can't go wrong.

    Darky's 6..0.3 was the 1st ROM I flashed and I went to 7.0.1 this morning. I can't see me trying any other ROMs I love how this one works and not seen too many bugs. Also he updates quickly when bugs are found.

    The phrase: No Wipe! Ever!

    Does that mean what I think it means? If you have flavor x, y, or z of any ROM you simply flash over what you've got?

    Bug(s) you've experienced?

    I think it means no wipe between versions of the same ROM. I wouldn't flash Darky over Assonance, for example. That's just a problem waiting to happen.

    I flashed 7.01 last night and am really enjoying it thus far. Seems very smooth, doesn't seem to use a ton of battery, and I like the little ginger-extras thrown in.

    What do you mean by "a problem waiting to happen?" I'm going between Assonance and Darky.

    I'd presume he means that you should flash back to stock before flashing to Darky. That's what I did, and that's the generally recommended path. Backup (Nandroid + TiBu), flash back to stock, root and add clockwork, then flash Darky.

    I flashed Darky's port 7.0.1 over Axura 2.5.1 with no problems.

    I thought that the Darky 7.0.1 developer came up with a way to automagically work no matter what preceded it (wishful thinking). That said, all that I've read has indicated that always beginning with a clean slate tends to ward off problems waiting in the wings.

    That's precisely what she means ;)

    I'm sure the Darky developer has come up with what might be a 'no wipe' ROM, but from all I've read over on XDA, 99.999%(*) of the problems for flashers happen when they get sloppy and start flashing over other ROMs without taking the proper precautions. Until the 'no flash' thing is a proven fact, I'll do it the old fashioned way - when I do it next week.

    (*)FYI - that's my own exaggerated statistic.

    I flashed darky's after assonance...I asked the wipe question in the forum and i got the answer as well...

    its not just darky's but even u can flash new version of any rom (even assonance)...but if u r swtiching to new rom then u have to flash to stock...

    How does this compare to Cognition?

    Pros and Cons?

    GPS?

    Battery?

    Themes/UI?

    Etc.




    Thanks for the help.

    Cognition is based on an old beta build of froyo while darky is on the final build of froyo, that's reason enough to switch.

    Check out this thread over on XDA regarding 'no wipe' being exactly what I thought. Do yourselves a favor and wipe, it's 15 minutes of your time you won't regret spending, from what I've been reading.

    I have learned the hard way to always Wipe Data/Cache when Flashing it eliminates a lot of possible problems.

    I popped my flashing cherry and flashed Darky's rom. And I like it!! Only little quirk is that the home button doesn't seem to work. Like it doesn't bring me back to the home screen when pressed. Anything I need to do to fix this or is this a rom issue??

    Check the Preferences and Behavior Settings. I think it a LauncherPro thing.
