DarkHorse Rises..... The continuing Saga returns..
Yes DarkHorse is alive and well, after pulling it to revamp and reboot...weare about done. The Theme is the work of Average Joes Team. We beleive in sharing how we theme and exchange of information.We however don't beleive in kanging or taken credit for others people work.Android is built upon sharing and making our phones better, but also upon creativity... Our work is our work, if you see something please feel free to ask and give proper credit. (if you don't understand see Rule#12)

2. Flash in recovery.TWRP or CWM
3. Reboot and Enjoy.
If you experiance some issues, here some genral guidelines to follow
1. Reboot into recovery and wipe dalvik/cache (not factory rest!!!)
3. If still having problems, try flashing theme once again.
4. If you attempt to mismatch themes,or other mods from other sources.. well guess what may not work.. And we cant support it as we wont know what the problem is.
Always, Always NANDROID!!! You don't, well learn what it is to Flash a ROM once again!
Below are some closer screenshots of this beast. As it sits now this thing is over 280mb by far the biggest DarkHorse theme that we have done. The great thing about Average Joes is that we compliment each others strengths and weakness' very nicely. This is the first theme in about 18 months that we have done together as we have had different phones and family commitments that have prevented us from getting together on a project. Below are some screenshots of this theme.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
On a more serious note, one of the ugly realities that (I) we have be dealing with for years is the kanging of this theme and not giving credit. With this being said if this continues to be a problem I will have no choice but to pull the theme permanently. I feel it is not fair that we should have to devote what spare time we do have to deal with all the drama and police our work which we could be spending with either our families or on further development. If you are planning on putting out a theme for a particular ROM and want to use part of DarkHorse in it please ask permission to do so before it is posted. In this build I have created a lot of original png's (which does happen when you jump OS's or manufactures.) Gunthemic and myself started working together on the HTC Thunderolt and this theme made its way to the GS3. Please do not be upset or offended if permission is not immediately granted as I feel that the reward for doing original work is having something truly original to show for it
Included with v 1.3 Didact74's custom Battery Mods that Gun and myself have been able to fully integrate into DarkHorse Rises !!!! Many thanks to Didact74 for making this mod as it adds more options to an already awesome phone. Version 1.3 brings themed AOSP Lockscreen
