After the success of MIRACLE V4, now comes... APOCALYPSE! Based on latest CyanogenMod 7.2 RC3 by vo-1, APOCALYPSE was modded in order to satisfy the majority of users concerning both looks and performance. It wasn't an easy task as the level since MIRACLE V4 was already set high. APOCALYPSE exceeds that level! And for that, a lot of people contributed, some with their desire to help by making things and some with their own mods in other threads from which I took the opportunity to adapt their work in this rom. So please read the thanks section at the end of this post to find out who those people are. To end this, I suggest you read carefully what I write cause I do this in order to help you and save you time for asking questions. Welcome to APOCALYPSE!


CAUTION: All things written here were made to help you install the rom and extras the right way and also point at bugs or other things. So please read so as to avoid asking questions that already have answers. Keep thread clean!
