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.

  • 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 bug fixed where Magisk makes the terminal (Alt+F1/ALT+F2) unusable [It’s the first build to achieve that™]
  • It’s the first ever public android_x86 nougat build to have the capability for using Mesa19! (early build)
  • *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]

  • 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]

  • Automated Windows installer (Manual mode is there too;))
  • You can choose your app configuration on the first boot [It is not bloated with any external system/user apps like other mods!]

  • 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 as some users reported [Thanks to @mido.fayad]

  • All PhoenixOS VIP services are intact. No changes were made to them.
  • Pre-Rooted with latest magisk/supersu [can be switched through gearlock]
  • Lspeed included. [Not advised to use unless necessary, system-level balancing optimizations already made. Use it only if building structures are not rendering fast upon landing on PUBG.]
  • 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
  • Multibootable between stock-initrd.img and mod-initrd.img
  • 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
  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 :)

Go for latest kernel & mesa,
Altho, you should experiment yourself to find which one works the best for you ;)
And yeah, you may need to apply "Unity game engine fix" from "gearlock > Game/System Tweak"

Try reducing the fps configuration.
And for the next version there will be a totally new game-optimization engine which will make your game really smooth without any gfxtool...
So, wait a bit for it...

You should try mesa17.4 (Install on a clean system)
Darkmatter is best for potato pc gamers . I will not say anything but u should try once. Then u will understand what ur potato pc can do. 5 star is not sufficient for this mod.
Can table 19.1 be installed on this system? What benefits do I get with MESA 19.1 or is it not 100% compatible with the system? What is the tutorial to replace MESA?
- Intel (R) Core (TM) i3-4160 CPU @ 3.60GHz
- Intel (R) HD Graphics 4400
- 7.9 GB of RAM
use gearlock to change mesa/kernel
you should try kernel 4.13.. and mesa 19.1 will work fine hopefully
Works perfect. Call of Duty Mobile with VERY HIGH without lagging on my low end laptop (i3 Intel CPU, Inel integrated Graphic, 3Gb RAM). You are superb.
