The owners of Samsung Galaxy Mini can now enjoy a brand-new custom theme “Dark Fantasy.” This ROM will give your Galaxy Mini a fresh look due to the mix of ICS and Gingerbread themes in it.


The ROM is overclocked to 801MHz, which implies better response and performance. Prime highlighting features of the ROM include App2SD, Bravie and Xloud hack, pre-rooted with busybox, and 14 status bar toggles! Apparently, even after overclocking, the ROM is said to give a better battery life compared to the stock ROM.
