Default Any themer/dev interested in making themes for es file explorer?

Es file explorer is one of the most used apps on Android. It's the best file manager for Android if you ask me. Though it has a good ui. But we can always ask for better.



Es file explorer with the 3.0 update was made themeable. But no theming APIs were let out. There's only one first party theme available
Es classic :

Butttt... You can always modify this theme apk and make your own themes.
Like this gentleman has done here.
MIUI v5 theme for ES file explorer - Theme - MIUI Official Community - Mobile - http://en.miui.com/thread-14498-1-1.html




Be sure to do this.
I would like to see some material themes or whatever you guys want to make.
Let's make this happen.

You don't need the coding part, just grab that apk from the Google play link above, replace your own icons that you want, sign the apk and that's it.
It'll be nice if someone does a material theme but I will take whatever anyone does

Problem with the Classic theme apk is that unfortunately not all parts of the app could be themed. A lot of the colors are hardcoded in the XML files.
