I'm not a big fan of the green of the newer hangouts versions, so this is a little project I've been working on the last little while to make hangouts fit more in with different themes I do for the M8. These hangouts can essentially be flashed on any device, so I've decided to share here.

Please Note: This mod was originally done for the HTC M8, and has only been tested on it. It should be fine on most devices, but there may be issues depending on your screen resolution and other factors. If it won't work for you, please provide me with detailed info, and an error log.

ViperLight Hangouts:


Colour options: Blue, Faded Blue, Green, HTC Green, Orange, Red, Pink, Purple and Grey.

Flash in recovery, and choose your colour via aroma. Please ensure you have hangouts up and running on your device before flashing this mod. If you have a problem, such as an FC, please provide me with a logcat and I'll try to figure it.

Thanks to:

Team BlackOut, as I've based the dark version on one of their older ones, and to help figure some stuff I couldn't find.
@j to the 4n for help with some colour stuff
@Spannaa for lollipop installtheme script
@Whiskey103 for providing download servers....thanks!

Guide for custom hangouts colour:
Please note, this only really works for dark, as light has custom images

1. Download your desired Hangouts zip.

2. Download HxD hex editor from here

3, Using 7zip or similar, navigate to additions\theme\extended\ics_blue\ in the zip, and extract resources.arsc

4. Open resources.arsc using HxD and then using replace (Ctrl + r), replace E5 B5 33 with the hex of your chosen colour.
Please note: if your chosen hex value is 123456, then when hex editing, you need to change the order to 56 34 12 (this isn't just backwards!)



You also need to make sure that HxD is set to hex values for datatype. It should replace something like 4 values.

5. Put the resources.arsc back into the ics_blue folder in the zip.

6. Flash the theme and select ICS Blue colour option in aroma.

@Basil dialer looking great, but still think removing the diviers would be sick. Great works as always.

Which one did you flash? Did you have hangouts running fine before flashing? Can you flash other mods fine?

Flashed dark (orange) and had the same stock version running before install. Other mods seemed to have installed well so far.
