Default [THEME][KIT KAT][n900V] All Backs Black Note 3 TouchWiz 4.4+ [21-06-2014]



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
- Keyguard
- MusicPlayerWT
- Popupcalculator
- SamsungIME
- SecCalculator_3d
- SecCalculator2
- SecContacts_OSup
- 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.).

If you try this theme on a ROM that isn't listed below please let us know. Also if you have any issues or general comments feel free to chime in.

Oh snap! I was eyeballing and drooling over this in the other forums but it was the aroma version and that doesn't play with safe strap. I am going to give this a whirl! Thanks!

i would love to flash this over baja rom. Anyone try it yet

about to try it now and hopefully my flashlight toggles in the quick settings stick. Making a backup in twrp before i flash it, i will report back in a few

---------- Post added at 07:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:18 PM ----------

Ok i flashed it over baja 14 and its working good. however i already had a s5 mms mod installed and everything semes black except the area where i type my messages and also my conversation list is white.

Maybe you could give me the secmms apk that i need to copy to the system ??

Also the dialer is all black but the phone icon is green (no biggie) and the svoice button to the left of the phone icon is blue

Damn nice theme. Got your thread saved when I upgrade to 4.4. Your work is greatly appreciated.

using Jasmine rom which has the S5 Email i assume that this would remove that and replace it with original and so i unzipped this and removed the SecEmail_J and zipped it back up but then it failed to flash.

is there a way to accomplish this?

thanks
