They have combined the update 4.2 with the 4.1 ROM to bring the Full DarkSlide v4.2 ROM. If you have applied the update there is no need to install this ROM unless you really want too. We have included all DarkSlide options in the DarkSlide/Add-on folder that is on your sdcard so you wont have to search for it.

  1. I just flashed Darkslide 4.2 on my DX. This was my first rom and your videos helped a ton. I have 2 questions though. 1-I cleared all data before flashing and still get the old slider when I get phone calls. That’s the only thing I noticed. Very smooth rom. 2-I did a nandroid backup with my stock froyo before I flashed rom. Can I just restore that to get the OTA or do I need to SBF? I was thinking of just waiting for DarkSlide to have something ready for GB, then take the OTA.

    • Going from an aosp rom back to stock blur generally presents problems… U could try flashing the nandroid, but it will probably be super buggy and fc prone due to different framework… If it doesnt work out for u u could just sbf at that point… But yes u must be on stock froyo to receive ota

      • Can I just ignore the ota and wait for Darkslide to have something ready for GB, then SBF? I really dont want to go back to stock untill I have to. I’m new to all of this so just a little unsure about the ota.

  2. Randy.. Im not going to accept the ota until root has been proven… That being said you wont be able to accept the ota while on a custom rom.. Being that bloatware is removed.. So u should be fine as lomg as you remain on darkslide

  3. If I’m on liberty ROM, do I need to SBF back to stock 2.3.34?
    I wiped and installed darkslide but it’s just stuck on the boot…

  4. darkslide 4.2 is a froyo rom so if you are on any version of gingerbread than yes you will need to sbf back to froyo… if your already on froyo make sure to wipe data in stock recovery…(power+home) then hit search to bring up menu, select wipedatafactoryreset

  5. first i want to say that this site rocks and i have already donated. i am trying to flash the darkslide 4.2 rom, i am on an older version. i have tryed everything and cant seem to get it justs stays on boot image. i have sbf back to stock and worked my way up and nothin. i tried flashing over top the old version and same thing. any ideas would be great

    • Try flashing it again…if it bootloops pull the battery and do a factory reset from stock recovery… holdhome+power, hit search when android guy comes up, then select wipedata/factoryreset
