    This is a very simple dark theme in an update.zip format....I'm still working on this but I just wanna get some testers and opinions from people.

    In my opinion, it's usable right now the way it is, but I just need to theme some more apps and do some fine-tuning. I just started it about 3 hours ago so don't expect to be blown away!! lolol

    I'm just calling it Rainy Day for now lol. If anyone has a better name for the theme leave suggestions below. As well as suggestions for anything else you would like to see.

    Anyway, HERE is the download link.

    Rename the file to update.zip, place in the root of your sdcard. Reboot into recovery (Clockwork or SPRecovery) and apply the update.zip....remember in SPRecovery to choose the "allow /sdcard/update.zip installation" first before you actually install the file.

    And also REMEMBER, this is ONLY for CyanogenMod. I have NO clue if this will work on any other ROMs.

    Will this "simple" dark theme be faster and less laggy than the Nextheme? I experience a lot of lag with the NexTheme, especially with response to touchscreen commands.

    I'm hoping that a "lighter" theme with less customized images will run faster. While the NexTheme is beautiful, I will take speed over beauty any day. ;)

    Just finished installing. Looks good and the OS response seems snappy. :)

    One thing I noticed though. When I went to mount my sd card for Mass Storage Mode, the dark gray buttons for Mount/Cancel had black text/fonts so it was a bit hard to see.

    I like the dark top that I had gotten used to with UD 9.0.
