    I am making a theme that darkens the already dark stock look of UD 2.3 and I would like some testers to help me find bugs or find any big dislikes. Before you decide here are some things to think about....

    1. This theme's lockscreen is setup for my font and will look bad with other fonts, I will be making a universal theme later but for now this is how it is..
    2. I do not use the rotary lockscreen so I don't even know how it looks with this theme, if there is enough interest I will get to those too.
    3. Right now, this is not a full theme but I will be releasing more as I complete each app.
    4. The theme darkens the apps and has several tweaks to menus, etc.
    5. Certain things like 3g signal and battery are left colored so that their status can be seen easily and quickly.

    Be sure to make a backup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Before installing BE SURE TO SWITCH TO DEFAULT FONT......

    Take a look and see what you think, let me know of any bugs... I am sure you guys will find some, but that is my plan....

    Thanks and I hope you like it

    Included: framework, keyboard, email, mms, talk, vending (tweaked Bowers version)..............

    More to come........

    You guys are welcome to post screenshots, I will get some up later if no one does..............

    Not bad, looks nice, maybe a little bit of shine would make it stand out a little more from the dark background.

    I'm backing up right now. Will install your theme as soon as that is complete. I love me some dark!!

    Here's my current home screen:

    I like the shades of grey on the keyboard, but it could use some lighter colors to make it stand out.

    Well I do like it. My suggestions are minor, I think.

    1. Can the 3G icon have the 3 & G side-by-side? Not a deal breaker, just my preference.
    2. I like the solid, totally black background on the keyboard better. Again, this isn't a deal breaker for me, but I would probably remove the keyboard from your theme and keep BD's the 2.3 keyboard.
    3. I love the font!!
    4. You probably already know this, but on the unlock screen the in the slider, the "sound" has a green line behind it. Also, on this screen I would like to see the two arrows be red (just to add a little flash!!).

    Seems to be a great first attempt to me!! Keep it up, please. :)

    The green line behind the sound slider means its on, slide it and it will eventually go to red meaning the sound is off...

    Great start!

    Besides the gmail bug u mentioned, I noticed a bug in your keyboard (which I LOVE) on one of the symbol keys on the main sybol screen as well as on the "period longpress" and the top row multitouch "swipe up" it says Gamp instead of one of the symbols, not sure if it's the same symbol in all 3 places or not.

    Also in gtalk the mobile indicators are invisible, I have an inverted gtalk with visible indicators. If you want let me know.

    I don't use the email app so I'm no help to u there.

    I like pretty much everything about the theme so far except I might be able to do without the font (somewhat tough on the eyes imo)

    Great start though, I look forward to more!

    Yeah, I'm not sure what that is? those symbols come from the system so I don't know... as far as the mobile indicators, are they the little androids sort of leaning to the side? thanks

    I second that! I want to see it but I have flashed my phone to death the last couple days. My fingers hurt and my phone hates me.
