Service [Request] Dark Dialer / Contacts App Theme

Is there any way to make the T-Mobile S4 white dialer app look like the stock dialer on the international version?

I find the white dialer to be annoying. It is too cartoonish-looking and its white theme is so inconsistent with the rest of the stock apps' UI.

There are plenty of dialers in the app store. He wants the stock dialer themed as do I. Some of us actually like the tw dialer

Yes, I could have used ExDialer or any other dialer, but calls still go through the stock Phone app (you'll see the transition from the third-party dialer to the stock white dialer when making calls). Besides, the dark TW dialer does look great and consistent with the rest of the UI.

So, anyone know how to change the color of the STOCK dialer?

Thanks.

I pulled the SecPhone and SecContacts apks from Wanam's Rom and successfully placed them on the system partition. Themed them with a theme from the i9505 thread and everything is working good... Except! CALL RECORDING. If you try and record a call it will lock up the phone requiring a reboot. I did have it work once but I'm still unsure of the particular circumstance, different kernel? No AC!D audio mod? Or what actually allowed this feature to work without locking the phone up. I ran out of time today to test. I really don't even care about that feature but I really don't want the random button press to disable the phone until rebooting. I looked everywhere for a non "hacked", call recording disabled SecPhone apk that didn't cause other non compatibly issues with no luck. But it sure looks good!

Don't use the Layout folders from the i9505 rom .
