Unfortunately, at this point in time I am too busy with "real life" to sink time into this project.

I am not abandoning this project, there are many things I have planned and am working on to extend and improve upon this theme. When time permits I will finish what I have started and release a new version.

In the meantime there are plenty of users that have used this theme for a while and can help you with any issues you may have.

If I haven't replied to your quote, mention or PM, I will endeavour to do so in the coming week.

Thanks.



See below for some screens.


S5 MMS & Settings


See further below for Download links, changelog and a list of ROM's All Backs Black has been reported working on.

I have added this thread here for those that don't venture into other Note 3 forums. Plus it will be easier to manage the enhanced ABB files.

Original thread here.

If you post in this thread please don't double post in other ABB threads.

Feast your eyes on All Backs Black for Note3 TW 4.4+ (Rooted) Odexed or Deodexed by the original creator @Kdio.

This is a tried and proven theme that has been implemented on both the S3 & S4. In saying that, this is not a port, this theme was made ground up by Kdio and myself for the Note3.

Some users install this theme for battery efficiency; I prefer to use it purely for aesthetics I find it more pleasing to the eye than the stock TouchWiz interface colours.

For those of you that prefer something simple and done right or would like a reported 20% more battery, this theme is probably for you.

Neither I nor the original creator of this theme are responsible for any damage you do to your device. Flash at your own risk.

A few words from the Man you should be grateful to if you decide to flash and use this theme.

As extensively researched by the community, the use of black backgrounds in OLED (AMOLED and Super AMOLED) devices may lead to a gain up to 20% more battery juice. As related information, you can find some maths here and this xda experiment.

If, as is mine, your main device concern is lifetime and not the looks, give this a try and share your experience. Mine has been fantastic!

What is themed:
- ClockPackage_OSup
- MultiWindowTrayService
- JobManager

- SecDownloadProviderUi
- SecEmail_J
- SecGallery2013
- SecLauncher4
- SecMms
- SecPhone
- SecSettings
- SPlanner_2013
- SystemUI
- framework-res
- twframework-res

Notice: If you flash this theme just after flashing the ROM (before first boot) Desk and Lock screen will be setted to black.


Requirements:

- Samsung Stock TouchWiz Rooted KitKat 4.4+ ROM
- Custom Recovery

Install:

- Enter CWM recovery;
- Install Core files Zip from below
- Reboot your device and Profit!!! If like me you are OCD and suffer from ORD or if you have any issues (with the theme), wipe Cache and Dalvik.

Uninstall:

- Enter CWM recovery
- Wipe Cache and Dalvik
- Reflash your ROM zip (no need to wipe data)
- Restart your device, Done!!!

Updates:

- Enter CWM recovery;
- Install latest iteration
- Reboot your device and Profit!!! (If you have any issues wipe Cache and Dalvik.)

This Theme should work on any Stock Rooted 4.4+ TouchWiz Odexed or Deodexed ROM (Just install the All Backs Black core files from below and all should be good.).

Wow, this theme is awesome, will this work on any other variant device ie, tmo note3? This is exactly the theme I would like to run. I will give it a try, should work, most of the file structure should be the same in both.....

Very good work sir, looks real nice...

You Sir are just the person I have been looking for, let me what works and what doesn't. At worst, phone, contacts and MMS will probably either FC or simply not work. Once I have an idea of what's wrong I can fix it.

Make sure you back-up first.

Good Luck.

lol, thanks, I sure will flash this, give me a few, I am in the middle of a quick build for the s4 guys...umm, I can't wait actually. I love the look, the dark look has always been my favorite.

Hey, could I post your link in my Sprint thread, for the peeps to have quick access? I will credit properly, and we can get some people to run this bad boy....

And if it works on my tmo roms, I would like to post the links there also.....

Great work my friend!! When @micmars puts his stamp on something, it is something I need to check out for sure...

@coldmethod Thank you for supporting us sprint users. About to flash this on free3 with the 4/27 international all backs black theme already installed I'll report back if there's any issues.


Edit. Got it flashed on fre3 2.14b and no issues. Can't comment on dialer, contacts, mms theming due to already having flashed modified versions of those files that were pre themed to make this theme invert them properly. Can't find the link right now but they were posted in the fre3 thread by @micmars. 2 thinks are still not themed though. The notification bar and the wifi calling toggle.


Neither bother me that much as I usually have wifi calling disabled and it's mostly gray when disabled and I can use Wanam to make the notification bar black.
Really loving this theme keep up the great work.
