Ok, here is a pet project I've been working on, search didn't yield that anyone else had posted something similar.
Basically it adds another button on the Hybrid properties launch section, where you would see the different ui buttons, that contains color presets for more apps.

Includes:
Xda app (regular, pro, and tab) (dark theme)
Instagram
Netflix
Gmail
Flipboard
Ingress
Stock clock
Dropbox
Alarm Clock Xtreme
Evernote
MyScript Calculator
News & Weather
Dialer
Facebook
Facebook Messenger
Hangouts
Google Plus
Apex Launcher (Transparent statusbar)
Email
Grocery IQ
BaconReader (reddit app)
BeyondPod
Kindle
iHeartRadio
Google Play Music (there seems to be some kind of bug with this one)
Google Keep
Notes Lite by Fluffy Delusions

If you have more color presets, feel free to post them and I'll add them in if they look right.

Flashable zip version: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nxbq57khas...2013-05-21.zip
Manual version: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oadn3izkqz...2013-05-21.xml

For the manual version, copy the Xml to /system/etc/paranoid/preferences/
Set perm to rw-r--r--



Undo options

There is no one click method to get rid of the applied Zcolors without removing any other modifications you have made in the hybrid properties, this is a limitation of the Hybrid Engine. There are three ways I can think of off of the top of my head to revert these colors:
1. Go to Settings > Hybrid Properties > Apps, then click on the app you want to revert to stock, then click the reset icon (circle arrow with a dot in the middle). Repeat for each app.
OR
2. Using a file explorer, go to /system/etc/paranoid/ and open properties.conf. under ##SYSTEM PREFERENCES you will see a bunch of entries like "com.facebook.katana.colors="FFCBD2DF|B2FFFFFF |FFF FFFFF|FF5975B0|FFFFFFFF". Delete the lines for the apps you don't want the coloring on.
OR
3. Go to Settings > Hybrid Properties > Tools > Reset Properties. This will get rid of all Zcolors and any other modifications you have made to per app colors/dpi. If that doesn't bother you, then this will be the quickest easiest route.

Also, If after doing that, you want the Zcolor option to go away, you can go to /system/etc/paranoid/preferences/ and delete Z_Colors.xml. All my flashable file does is drop that XML in the right folder and set permissions correctly for it.

Well, apparently it's broke. It was working, gotta figure out where it broke at.

EDIT: Fixed it, it was the dang permissions I screwed up.

Do you have the one dated 2013-02-21, or -22?
The first one didn't set permissions correctly.
I just reflashed the -22 on a clean install, and it worked fine.
Let me know if you're having issues still.

Yeah, I forgot to set that to set the correct permissions, the current one was fixed.

Really nice and work great, thanks! I like the idea of changing app colours but haven't got around to doing it!

Damn, by the title of the thread I thought that the PA team would try to fix the screen calibration as they did on the N4
