    ****Updated to Build 12****

    ***PLEASE have a backup just in case***

    ***PLEASE READ IMPORTANT INFORMATION***

    This rom has grown in size with the addition of the new features that we all love. For this theme to work in its entirety, you MUST delete some things out of your /system partition with a file manager that is allowed superuser access. If there is not enough space to apply all the files that you are trying to flash, you will have problems.

    Things I delete and/or can do without---

    1. Ringtones out of the /system/media/ringtones folder---theres a ton of them and i use one maybe two
    2. Notification sounds out of the /system/media/notifications folder---same reason as above
    3. Live Wallpapers.apk(magicsmoke also) in the /system/app folder---they eat up alot of resources to run, and take up alot of space to store
    4. Any .apk's that i dont use out of the /system/app folder
    5. DCwallpapers.apk out of the /system/app folder---if you dont use any of these then the apk can be deleted
    6. Visualizationwallpapers.apk out of the /system/app folder---I'm not even sure what these are or where to find them, but when deleted you will gain back a large amount of space.

    ***By all means, you dont have to delete all of the stuff I mentioned, I'm just hoping out of the list you can find enough things to free up enough space to run this theme. In estimation, I'd recommend freeing up anywhere from
    7-10mb in your /system partition

    ***If you are currently using a custom status bar color from the DC Settings but want to have the one included in this theme you must disable the custom status bar color prior to flashing***


    **This includes a themed launcherpro, so if you have it installed from the market, uninstall it prior to flashing this theme**

    ***Post # 3 has some very nice wallpapers and docks that theshamrock1976 put together for me.
    Thank you to my testers, David M, mjones, and listenman20, for helping me get this out.

    There are more updated screenshots in post #4. The stuff in the statusbar is kind of pixelated in all of the screen shots That is not how it looks on the phone. I use drocap2 to take screens, maybe that's the problem. If you can recommend a better app for that, please do. Thank you.


    Download Link Main Theme >>>>> Black_and_White.zip

    Download Link Google Apps >>>>> Google_apps.zip

    Download Link Font Package >>>>>
    Font_pack.zip

    ***Flash font package in recovery like anything else.***

    (font credit to fachadick, xda, for packaging a bunch of great fonts)


    Thank you to the bowers, team inversion conversion, ecsnead, B-boy, for your awesome work with the inverted apps. Big credit to these guys, and anyone else involved that i didn't mention, it wasn't intentional. If you feel i left you out let me know and ill add you:)

    Please enjoy my theme as much as I enjoyed making it! Feel free to do whatever you want with the theme, even though I created it, Im not claiming to own it, so chop it up, modify it, port it to another rom, sell it on ebay....I really dont mind :)

    Lastly, I would like to recognize the creators of this rom...Ive had many questions that I've thrown their way since I started theming this rom. They have been nothing but polite and helpful. They work their butts off between this and a number of other things they most likely are juggling. I currently do not have a donate button, and probably never will. So please anyone that would have considered donating to me for my work on the theme, just send it either woodyman, davros, or swasilla. Thanks, and enjoy!

    Thank you to Woodyman, Davros, and Swallisa for a great build!

    Everything has installed beautifully but I'm not understanding how to use the wallpapers.zip file. What needs to be done to make it available for use?

    Unzip the file on a pc then take the wallpapers and transfer them to wherever you have your wallpapers at on your sd card then when you go to change your wallpaper select them through the gallery

    One question, is this font color normal for this theme or am I missing something? It's very light on apps and I'd like to darken it up.

    The font color for this theme was a little tricky and i faught with it the whole way with pure white i couldnt see it at all and much darker than that blended with the darker colors too much i can try to darken it up in maps/navigation and post an update for that a little later... are there any others that need darkened up?
