Disclaimer: Neither we, nor developer should be held responsible for any damage happened to your device in the process of following the instructions mentioned in this article. It’s very unlikely that there will be any issues but just in case if at all there are any issues then we are committed to help you in solving the same.

Pre Requisites:

  • All the data present in your phone should be backed up as in the process of applying this update, the data might get either lost or corrupted. With the help of below mentioned steps you can easily backup the same. After updating with this release, the KIES won’t recognize the device as it’s a custom ROM firmware.

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log – Call Log and Restore
Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,
APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Minimum charge left in the device should be at least 60% so as to ensure that device doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update.
  • Disable all the antivirus suites in your computer and uninstall the same in your device as these tools generally tend to interrupt the process of firmware update.
  • Now, you need to enable the USB Debugging in your Galaxy S from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. The USB Debugging option should be ticked.

USB Debugging

  • Irrespective of the current firmware you are ON, you need to ensure that you have rooted the same as this firmware can only be applied on the rooted firmwares.

Special instructions for Users on Custom ROM:

  • Ensure that Voodoo Lagfix or any other Lagfix is disabled in your device which you can do the same from the recovery mode. Also, additionally from the recovery mode, in “advanced” option you need to clear the Dalvik Cache before applying this update or else it may hamper the process of firmware update process.

So, assuming that you have followed all the above mentioned instructions you can now proceed to the next page where detailed instructions on how to update with the Dark NIGHT ICS 4.0.4 Custom firmware release is summed up.

    Hey Pradeep i updated my phone with this but rom no matter that it is the fatest rom but i was on 2.3.6 and the features which i had was capturing photo while recording video & inbuilt music player which had a very good eqalizer & Video player which had option to send via bluetooth. These rom is not meeting my expecting just bcoz the baic features is missing. Even the memo is missing which was very IMP for me. The only features i like in these rom is fast, the mobile data calculater & the task Killer. Can u suggest any better rom which is meeting my expectation.

    really great rom, worked perfectly for a while, but now it won’t start mobile data (3g), not from the toggles, not from the menu, it simply doesn’t work until I reboot the phone. After I reboot, it works for a while, and then stops working again. It’s frustrating to have to reboot everytime I want to use mobile data. Is there a fix a can apply for this problem??? Thanx

    May 17, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Nice work overall. Very stable. GPS doesn’t activate and upon turning GPS on, the phone disconnects from the cellular network. Only way to get connected again is by rebooting the phone.

    This also means that apps requiring GPS won’t install.

    I have installed this rom and I must say I am impressed with all the best of ICS has to offer. Can you please tell me why when I dial or receive a call it gets cut off when I pick up the phone up to my ear? is it to do with proximity sensors cutting off the call or screen> Please advise as it frustration what could be the issue.

    Cheers would appreciate your Immediate answer to this.

    Hey Neela. I recently reverted back to custom JVU, Rooted & ready but judging by the comments I’m wondering if you could perhaps give us an ETA on the nest, more stable version of Dark Knight? It really does sound AWESOME!!! (See, it’s my gf’s phone & I wanna surprise her with a really Sweet custom rom… 🙂 Esp one calle “Dark Knight” ;))
    PS, Thanks for all the great work. You Devs are Stars in my eyes! LOL. 🙂

    I can’t seem to reinstall Swype, it’ not allowing the Swype keyboard to be selected and defaults to the Android Keyboard. I miss Swype, the stock keyboard is total garbage imo
    Anyone know a fix?

    Good so far. My Gmail Services etc are back to normal. Something funny that I have been experiencing on more than one ocassion…if my battery drained completely and i charge up on starting my phone i always end up with no network and at times network drops off and i have to do a couple of reboots and power offs to restore it. Also battery drain is high but then i attribute it to my push settings as well.

    Otherwise this works very fine

    this ROM is very nice, however there are some issues that needs to be addressed. the stock camera do not have any effect options anymore not like with the previous firmware. but it nice anyway.
    @Ms_V: we are on the same value pack before i added this ROM. your problem can actually be fixed. Just go to apps–> all–> look for media storage then clear data and also look for download manager then do the same. your problem will be fixed.

    Hi there,

    I recently updated my Galaxy S GT I9000 with NEW Value Pack XXJW4 2.3.6 Firmware then rooted it with the Official Value Pack XXJW4 2.3.6 Firmware. Following that, I updated it with Dark Knight Custom ROM ICS 4.0.4 Firmware. I did wipe Dalvik cache as well as the other caches prior to installing this custom ROM. However, once I reboot my phone, it keeps flashing the following messages:
    “Unfortunately, the process has stopped” and “Unfortunately, Gmail has stopped”, “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped”, “Unfortunately Exchange Services has stopped”.
    As such, I am unable to use my phone at all.
    Please advise.
    Thank you!

      At this stage after numerous reboots the problem may have fixed itself i will keep monitoring.

    This is extremely awesome except for some glitches. Music player won’t work 99% of the time. keeps saying “Unfortunately Music has stopped” and if it even works, it says that it doesn’t recognize this type of audio file (mp3). tried to factory reset everything and flashed it again, still the same. 🙁 It also does it when I try another music player app I downloaded from Play Store (Musixmatch). Also, some apps that I had on my phone before couldn’t be downloaded anymore. I guess it has something to do with the apps’ compatibility with ICS. Is there any way we can fix it? what music player app can work with this? thanks and more power guys!

    Great ROM! However, I cannot change the keyboard anymore. The system is locked on Android keyboard by default; I cannot change to Swipe or any other that I want. Does anyone have the same problem?

        I instaleed the Dark Knight rom, and everithing was perfect, until 2 days ago, when wi-fi stoped working for no reason. I tried the wififix, but after instalation, the phone didn’t start so I had to reinstall the rom just to start the phone. After reinstallation of the rom…wifi still doesn’t work. please help

    If you can’t turn on bluetooth on your device after installing this custom rom, just download and install semaphore kernel from this link and it will solve the problem.
