    Inverted Dropbox 1.1.1 - Finally!!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dropbox Ver. 1.1.1 - Install this with Root Explorer or Astro. Uninstall the previous version first.

    Dropbox 1.1.1 Version 2 - This has the inverted lockscreen settings, but I'm still fighting with the regular settings screen. I have also changed the app icon to black (Thanks to stetsonaw for pointing this out. I guess I was kind of tired by the time I was swapping out images.). You should be able to install this over version 1.

    So awesome, thx for doing this. I know this is a themer's nightmare, but have u seen that they have a newer beta up on their site? I know they're asking ppl to test it.. but i don't see any major differences (or any differences really). I'll post the apk when back home.

    Dropbox 1.0.9.6 (original apk)

    Here's a direct link to
    Dropbox 1.0.9.6 (Original apk)
    (only 3 days old)

    and the dropbox forum page where it's located.. fwiw.
    It might just be worth it for to wait for the 1.1 update, which it seems they're gearing up for.

    Btw, I'm so stoked you did this. I gave inverting a shot a little while back, and was having probs. Any tips or anything u did special with the xml edits?

    When I do xml edits, I use Notepad ++ and Code Compare. If I have another apk that I can use as a base, then Code Compare comes in handy. If not, then I can use Notepad ++ to do free edits. Always start with a search in Notepad ++ for "background". This will show you what files or png's will need to be edited. Another thing that you can do is just use a color instead of the png or xml reference.

    For example, if the background reference shows: android:background "@drawable/baseline_photo", you can always replace the part in quotes with "#ff000000" to make it black.

    In the Dropbox app, I was able to do 80% of the edits in res/values/colors.xml. This is also a good place to start when editing an xml file. Also, res/values/styles.xml handles a lot of the theming elements. Dropbox didn't have very much in styles.xml though. I didn't even make any changes in there.

    Very cool app makeover! Be sure and do the same to the new release coming from the DropBox site in the near future. Gotta love these guys on this site. They as a group are very talented, friendly, helpful and all around nice people!

    Just popping in to say *love this*. The more inversion/trans I get on my phone the longer my battery seems to last - and the less "OMG THE BLINDING BRIGHTNESS" I experience in dark rooms in the middle of the night. Which, oddly, happens more than I thought it would. :)

    Actually it takes just as much power to have a black screen as white b/c the backlight is on either way

    I'll do the new one when it is an official release. I don't want to do the beta because they may release the official one right after I get it done.

    I think I may start on AppBrain App Market next.

    Edit: Nevermind on the AppBrain inversion. In playing around with it, I noticed there is an option for a dark theme.

    Myth busted! I just read up on it, and you're 100% correct. Only OLED-based tech is affected by black vs. white pixels.

    But I still get the "Plz dont blind me 1st thing in the morning kthanx" benefits. plus, let's face it, it just looks cooler.

    Never discount the "it looks cooler" factor. :)

    This is why I do the inversions or install already inverted apps on my phone. I have a Droid Incredible with the AMOLED screen.

    This is phenomenal! I didn't realize how much I hated the stock theme on this app until I saw this in action. Excellent work and Thanks!

    I'll get right on the update when it happens since it seems everybody is liking the inversion. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for it.

    Greetings Devildog,

    I just came across this while making my rounds of the various threads I follow. I’m a big fan of inverted apps and use as many as I can find. I loaded this onto my D1 w’ Miui running the Miui Chase Black & Blue theme. It looks great. Excellent job! Thanks so much for putting in the work.

    Also, just a heads up that on the opening page, the box icon is blue on the landscape view, not black/gray like on the portrait. I don’t know if it’s just my phone. I didn’t read where anyone else mentioned it so maybe so.

    Thanks again!
