    Here is a little taste of my upcoming theme release for DC betas. If you have used my theme before you know what to expect.

    One thing to do before installing, be sure to remove gmail from /data/app, this will install gmail to /system/app....

    What you will get.....

    gmail
    email
    google search
    keyboard
    black market 2.3.6
    dark talk
    mms

    note.... market will now be called black market and talk will be called dark talk in the app drawer.....

    This is an update zip and installs through recovery... enjoy!

    thanks, I have another gmail that is all black, the one I loaded has slightly different background colors for read and unread messages. The newest one I have just uses the bold and regular text to tell the difference.....

    Let me know what you think... I will be working on framework this weekend and should get the full theme out soon.... well thats after Woody's release...:)

    You da man ecsnead!

    Everything looks and works great, except for me, Google search and black market. But that's me, I don't know what I did recently but black market won't show up and search crashes on load, no matter what I've tried.

    As soon as build 10 hits I'll probably wipe all and start from scratch.

    Yeah no doubt it's just me. The last black market that worked for me I installed several months ago and I think it still worked until I installed DC build ~1 or 2. I don't remember exactly what made it quit. I installed a themed market from XDA that looked awesome and worked for weeks until mysteriously it crashed in the middle of updating apps. I haven't been able to get anything but the stock market working since. *shrug*

    Not even the stock Google search works, but I had an older inverted / themed search that would still work if I install it.

    Now that I think about it, I had the inverted twitter 2.0 that quit working on me after I installed the DC beta for the first time. Again, the stock one works fine, but I can't stand to look at it hardly. I moss the blue text and inversion. :(

    Gmail and email fc on me when I first loaded them, but clearing data in settings works like it should. Nothing I've tried over the last few weeks has worked on the market, search, or twitter. I've tried clearing data for all Google apps, wiping cache and dalvik, etc. I'm assuming I'll have to wipe all data from recovery to fix this.

    I am pretty sure that once you do a full wipe to load 10, you will be able to load all the apps.....

    I think so too. I hate even mentioning my probs cuz nobody else seems to have issue. I guess I just wonder if there's a trick someone found works for them.

    I'd have wiped already if I wasn't so busy the last couple of weeks. I hate having to set up everything the way I like it again in the middle of it all. I use my phone a lot for work, plus it's summer, we have kids, etc. :)

    After a complete wipe, I installed DC10, GAPPS, Blacked Out Apps, & then kernel. I saw Black Market in apps drawer, but it still FC on me, without any apparent hope to load beyond the ToS accept/decline screen. This before I restored any apps from backup. I tried 3G and WiFi. I have a custom hosts file, but that shouldn't matter, I think.

    After giving up there, I attempted these themed markets (same version, named Market) with the same results -- disable data sync, clear data, reboot, enable data sync, access market, FC. This one at least used to work when Black Market wouldn't show up for me (plus, love the color on black look.) After zero success, I reverted to stock market and all is otherwise good. It just makes no sense to me. I wiped all data several times and was starting from scratch. Any of the other (numerous) Blacked Out/Inversion Conversion apps I've installed, if they FC I just clear data in settings, and maybe reboot and they work fine. The Blacked Out market just doesn't like to run on my phone. :(

    Should I have waited to install Blacked out apps until after data sync had had time to restore market links? I guess I could try again tonight now that everything is back to normal and stable. All other Blacked Out apps have been working just fine, and looking great!

    PS I never restored any system apps or data, only select downloaded apps and then only data on a few. Since wiping, the Google Search works fine, which used to also be a problem. Dark Talk also shows and looks incredible. Could it have anything to do with my kernel? I'm running ChevyNo1's LV 1GHz, from http://www.droidforums.net/forum/chevyno1/135532-kernels-3-24-11-froyo-gingerbread.html (downloads removed it seems.) I'll try one of his updated kernels as well, I think.

    In order for themed markets to work you must load them over a stock market after install and a reboot. You have to establish the stock market working first... then boot into recovery and flash the themed market... flash rom, flash gapps, reboot..... then reboot into recovery and flash themed market... hope this helps..

    ecsnead69,
    Did you say that there will be a full theme coming for DC10? If so can I be a tester :blush:. Just wondering.

    That makes sense, I've done it that way in the past out of dumb luck. This is the first time I've started with a clean slate and installed during the same recovery session. Would wiping dalvik be a requirement as well? Gonna try and report back. If it doesn't work, I'm going to do some more experimentation.

    Not thinking FW meant framework, and assuming blackedoutupdate.zip was an updated BO GAPPS, I installed this with some interesting results! I'm trying to take a screen capture before I flash back to the stock DC one. You gotta see this.

    Uuhh, the reason being, I think their could either be a conflict with the DC settings' customized colors, or something isn't working right. Drocap fails when triggering the screenshot.

    EDIT okay, got screens with adb/ddms. Maybe some of this is being unfinished? The vibrate/silent mode icon is showing, even though I'm not in silent mode. The status bar looks a little wonky with the spotlight effect. If that was intentional, sorry. ;) It was also animated when the phone was still booting up; I assume when it was loading notifications. The pull-down notifications don't show notifications, and I think the screencap explains the rest. There was an orange color on the unselected tabs in phone/contacts and also when managing apps in the settings.
