It's a very strong red. On the Screenshot the colors doesn't look like the real one
If you don't want to have transparency just flash the theme and it'll have a black background. For transparency you have to turn it on using deluxe settings.
You may flash it over this theme but maybe not everything will be changed. But the icons in the notification drawer and toggles will be! If you flash my theme over it you'll remain with the framework icons and so one of it but you'll have my icons.. Just try it and see if you like it
