Notice: There are some *thieves who are active over copying our project and sharing them with their own name just by adding a new wallpaper and making app-icon changes 😂 . So, don't be fooled 😄 The biggest example is Woltrex & tipslap

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

arkMatter is just an unofficial polished version of the official PhoenixOS. Not alike others, it has some special features which makes it unique. Since this is based on PhoenixOS, thus all the credits goes to the offical POS devs & android-x86 devs. The main purpose of this project is to make it easier to perform advanced customizations over the stock POS. It's not about just a fancy wallpaper or bootanimation and obviously there is no question at adding them, because it's not really a thing. That's all, thank you. No such changes/implementations were made which would potentially harm the pos/android-x86 devs in any means. For knowing more information about the project and licences click here.

  • Record both internal-audio+screen with ultra smoothness without any app!
  • There is no black-screen issue or force-close in CALL-OF-DUTY [This is the first ever android-x86 nougat build to achieve this]

  • Fixed the “Compiling resources” Issue on all variants of PUBG on both mesa v17 and v18 (Will support Intel, AMD & Nvidia GPU seamlessly) [ Exo1.0->Exo4.1 gang will remember that... It was the first Unofficial build to achieve that™;)]

  • Fixed the bug where PUBG doesn’t allow transactions over PhoenixOS builds [It’s the first Unofficial build to achieve that™ ;)]

  • Magisk issue workaround where Magisk makes the terminal (Alt+F1/ALT+F2) unusable [It’s the first build to achieve that™]

  • *GearLock Program for extensive customization [Dev: @AXON ] (That's why DM is made!)
  • *GearBoot Program [Dev: @AXON ], it can load boot scripts at certain stages even with supersu [similar with magisk]
  • Introducing GearTune, a system level optimization engine which will keep your OS running fluid from day one with maximum CPU tuning for better gaming experience!

  • Kernel Multi-booting....! Yes, you heard it right, you get two different kernel to boot from! (The primary one is the offficial POS kernel4.14.15 and the secondary one is 4.19.92 build by @HMTheBoy154 with passion ❤ . Note: Only the primary kernel can be changed through GearLock) [ As always, it's the first public android_x86 OS to have such capability ;) ]

  • Introducing Virt_Wifi support! (It will transform your ethernet connection into a Simulated wifi, meaning apps which dont support ethernet will work flawlessly now!) [Thanks to @HMTheBoy154 for the suggestion and @Chih-Wei Huang for his git patch]

  • Added vulkan graphics api support ( Was requested by @MethMan ) { Special thanks to @HMTheBoy154 }
  • 60 FPS will be unlocked for most devices without any GFX/Gltools (Is not true for 4.14.x kernels)

  • Fully automated Windows installer for both EXT4 & NTFS disk (Manual mode is there too;))

  • Bootup sound (first ever)
  • Custom screen resolution changer without any app.
  • Adjusted laptop touchpad sensitivity and fixed touchpad gestures.
  • Replaced Stardust Browser with Kiwi Browser [similar to Chrome + has dark mode + Extension suppport + you can set to desktop mode by default]

  • Fixed the UI-Stuck/Hangup issue on newer kernels as some users reported [Thanks to @mido.fayad]

  • All PhoenixOS VIP services are intact. No changes were made to them.
  • SuperSU is the default root handler, you can install any magisk version directly from gearlock!
  • Emulator Detected system.

  • Dual bootable with Windows through Grub2Win Bootloader
    [Compatible with both Legacy and UEFI, special thanks to @drummerdp]

  • Disabled EGL logging [For more performance]
  • Mic issues fixed [Credits: A few redditors]
  • Terminated a few locating processes during the boot.
  • WiFi issues fixed for some devices (incl. RTL8723DE, using Comet kernel)
    [Special Thanks to @mido.fayad and @HMTheBoy154 ]

  • All your hard-disk partitions + darkmatter partition will show directly on FX file-manager home.
  • Configured system for Xposed Framework installation. (Which is available as a GearLock-Package)
  • Unnecessary buggy boot functions removed from the Initial Ramdisk image [aka initrd.img]
    -->Example: ntfs-fix removed from the stock POS initial ramdisk Image, as it can cause damage to hibernated ntfs drives [initrd-stock.img]

  • Updated toybox and some busybox applets
  • And a lot more features for you to discover.......
  • What?? You want more?! 🤪

GearLock is a bash program which saves your valuable time over performing advanced customization over DarkMatter. To use this, simply open the GearLock app

Installation & Upgrade
👉 Video Tutorial (Updated) [Arabic /Eng / Hindi / Portuguese / Bangla]
  1. Just follow the simple steps of the windows installer.

  2. After you have booted into DarkMatter
    -----> Open GearLock app
    -----> Type 1 and press enter
You can either extarct the os files for manual installation or just simply flash the iso image into an usb-pendrive and install it through the bootable android-x86 installer --You can flash it using rufus(windows) / etcher(mac/linux)]
  1. Use a archive extractor for extracting the iso
  2. Just extract system.img initrd-stock/legacyimg ramdisk.img dark.matter kernel kernel419992
  3. Make a folder named data
  4. Open /etc/grub.d/40_custom
  5. Copy the code below and paste it on the bottom of/etc/grub.d/40_custom
    menuentry 'PhoenixOS DarkMatter'
    insmod all_video
    search --set=root --file /dark.matter
    linux /kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.selinux=permissive acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/
    initrd /initrd-stock.img
  6. Then run this command in your terminal
    sudo update-grub
  7. After booting up, open GearLock app
  8. Type 1, then press enter. This will decompress the system.sfs (or img) file to an independent system folder itself! Resulting in better system stability and performance :)

I'm Jonathan, guys i have used PhoenixOS official, ROC instinct versions (woltrex) and also i have tried VIP-Console 2.1 but everythings sucks. I can't play pubg mobile in 6fps. I have used gfx tools and i have followed so many youtube support. But those things couldn't help me. I always get knocked out by enemies cuz of my frame drops and lags... BUT THE GOOD THING IS. One of my friend name called DARK said about DARK MATTER. I tried it.. i have no word coming out of my mouth.. it's just awesome. Guys i love you sooo much.. heart heart heart heart heart heart DARK MATTER is next level experience. I'm getting 60fps guys. Thank you so much kissing_heart kissing_heart kissing_heart kissing_heart
I have so many friends who using phoenixos official one and woltrex version, i will tell em all about this. I was shocked when i see it's working on 60fps. Thank you guys for your precious time and work. Wonderful. Thank you so much to all of you. Love you.
im kinda confused since im using Linux,
i also want to play other games like pixel gun 3d with keyboard and mouse, will that work?
Yea, just give it a try and maybe you dont know that darkmatter contains a wide range of command-line linux utilities :)

Well I always wanted to play PUBGM on emulator with good FPS without any lag or crash. Through this I was able to. Thank you so much for great mod. Now I can play hassle free. 5 STARS. CHEERS!
Glad to know :)
Where is the ISO download link ?? I am only getting exe
Unfortunately it's not available for Exo4.6 as I delayed for customizing the iso file. Exo4.7 is to come soon, which is why not going to make an iso for 4.6 now.
This installer sucks, just leave it as an ISO

When it booted it for first time,
it stucked at boot animation, I waited for hour but nothing happaned :'(
It's due to ext4 partition curroption. Windows is the cause of it. You can deal with it easily if you sense that you're on the boot screen over more than 5 min.
