Dark-Kat M 6.0.1 Rom For MT6582 Devices

Team Dark-Kat is an Android Open-Source Project utilizing Android 6.0.1 (AOSP) code base. Team Dark-Kat was formed on a few core beliefs. The ROM had to be something we’d run, reliable, and customization by the user to the level of their desire.

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), Supported Devices, the License under which we live by, our ChangeLog, and the Team Dark-Kat team.
Disclaimer: Dark-Kat is considered a “Work in Progress” project.  While we make every attempt to provide stable and reliable custom Android operating systems, we can not guarantee that everything will work as expected.

The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or information.

Team Dark-Kat presents ROMs that meet  three critical conditions:

    It’s a ROM we want to run
    Stable and Reliable
    AOSP feel and User-Customization together in harmony

Releases appear when we are satisfied in their stability, and not before hand.  We live by the credo that Stability trumps ‘Bleeding Edge’ and not ‘New is everything’.
Team Dark-Kat has bundled together a new Android 6.0.1 Custom ROM for all the mt6582 users to install on their devices.
If you are looking to update your mt6582 device to Android 6.0.1 and you are on mt6582 chipset device, then you should check the instructions listed in this post. This Dark-Kat-MM 6.0.1 ROM is still work in progress, but it is pretty stable and you should at least try it in case you love to tinker with your phone’s OS.
Before starting the installation process of this new ROM you should check the guidelines below.

Preparation Steps:

  • Use this post only with the MT6582 devices.
  • Do not use this post for any other different Android devices.
  • For the ‘how-to’ guide to be completed successfully you will need to have a rooted device and a custom ROM has to be installed on it.
  • The installed custom Recovery has to be TWRP Recovery. No other different Custom Recovery works with the Dark-Kat Android 6.0.1 ROM installation.
  • Make sure that the installed TWRP build is the latest one, so that it will support the new Android 6.0.1 custom ROM installations.
  • In the ‘how-to’ part of this post you can find two extra preparation steps: the NANDROID Backup and the Factory Reset ones.
  • The NANDROID Backup creates a full restore point for your device, one that you can use in case the new custom ROM doesn’t work with your phone.
  • The Factory Reset process wipes clean the system partition, but it won’t delete any data files from the internal storage.
  • Factory Resetting the device means that the old custom ROM will be removed completely for the new Dark-Kat Android 6.0.1 Custom ROM to boot successfully.
  • In case you have to save any data from installed applications, then you should use the Helium app.
  • Use the tutorial only if you are an advanced user. We cannot be blamed in case you brick the phone nor in case you lose any data in the process.
  • Read the entire tutorial first and make sure that you won’t be skipping any steps.
  • Check the battery charge level of your device and make sure that it is over 50%, as it will prevent the phone from switching off during installation.
  • Now that you know all of the above you can continue to the next part of this post.
