This rom aims at one goal, that goal is stability, with stability comes reliability, less need to update and minimal non-system breaking bugs if present.
What I have done is slim lined the rom using various methods and sources to make a reliable system for the ELF 2 tablet I hope that you can enjoy this rom as many others have.

    … kindly will you tell which android version have in this rom?????

  5. Questions regarding the download link/server will no longer be published the link works fine and always will simply read the article before face rolling.

  6. heyy I am currently using DarkElf1.0 but I do have a couple of problems with that, just wanted to ask can i update to this without losing any apps data? or will i have to wipe data first? and second thing, is the internal to external SD changed(like in darkelf) in this ROM too?

    • Always do a Titanium Backup before you swctih to another ROM. I had the same problems. What I did was do a Titanium Backup. After you get your new Rom go to the market get Titanium Backup. When you open T.B. go to restore but don’t restore all apps with data. Choose restore missing apps+system data . What that does is keeps your from overloading the MG Rom with apps you already have on your back up. Just restore the apps that the MikG Rom doesn’t have. One more thing make sure you have Apps2SD it will save you a lot of space also because you have the freedom to move apps to your SD card on this ROm

  7. Exactly what a lot to absorb all simultaneously, my greatest regards to the webmaster the particular webpage rich really quick and was convenient to use Thank An individual.
