    Options and Extras:
    The 3rd party apps/apk's provided below are just that, 3rd party apps. They are to be installed at YOUR OWN RISK!!! JMTownsend and myself will be testing these before they are added. We will update the links to the Black Facebook and Black Twitter soon.

    Clear Facebook:

    Thank you Droid DOES for pointing me in the right direction. And Credit to jatx2wne for the apk.
    PLEASE only download the facebook.apk from the link provided. It is the ONLY one I've tested so far.
    Just an FYI, the settings in FB are whited out. 3 notification setting can't be read.
    To install do the following:

    -Remove/Uninstall existing Facebook app/apk
    -Copy new facebook.apk (found>>> http://www.droidforums.net/forum/te...on/111070-transparent-apps-whats-missing.html) to the root of your SD card
    -Open Root Explorer and navigate to SD card
    -Scroll down to facebook.apk
    -Long press the facebook.apk file and copy/move to system/apps
    -Hit the R/W button so it reads R/O
    -Paste facebook.apk in system/apps
    -Set permissions to User: Read/Write, Group: Read and Others: Read
    -Hit R/O button so it reads R/W, exit and reboot
    -Enjoy

    Clear Gmail:

    Credit for Clear Gmail goes to Team Sourcery. This has been tested by me and the same install instructions apply to this as it does for the facebook.apk above. Once again, only download the ones that have been tested by JMT or myself. Clear Gmail Link Here>>>http://www.droidforums.net/forum/te...on/111070-transparent-apps-whats-missing.html


    Black Facebook:

    To install:

    Open Bootrapper
    Bootstrap Recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Backup and Restore
    Backup (better safe than sorry!)
    Back to main Recovery menu
    Install zip from sdcard

    Install
    Back to main Recovery menu
    Reboot
    Enjoy!

    the file can be downloaded here:

    **if you like this keyboard, I recommend you check out Themed Gingerbread Keyboards and thank Gregtard for his hard work and kindness! Remember, he did this as a favor ;)

    How do I uninstall a themed keyboard. I want to go back to my darkslide keyboard. The gingerbread's word selector/replacer is glitchy for me, it wont change the whole word just add it in the middle of what I already typed.

    Ok, luckily, the keyboards are all included in your backups folder. :) just open bootstrapper
    Bootstrap recovery
    Reboot recovery
    Install zip from sdcard
    Choose zip from sdcard
    Select keyboard you want (will be in sdcard/darkslide/add-ons/)
    Install
    Reboot
    There you go :D

    Did you update from the 4.1 version or install the 4.2 full ROM version? No biggie either way. You could just download the full ROM version to your desktop and unzip it into a folder. Then all you have to do open it up, find the add-on zips and drag them to you Darkslide folder on you Droid X.

    Very good point. Or, if he just loads the full 4.2 rom overtop what he has now, his keyboard will go back to DarkSlide default...but so will anything else he's changed. ;) The choice is yours :p
