hello xda devs


from very first i would like to say im really big fan of white theme i dont like black backgroud so i was looking for guide i found guides for apps having styles.xml
and in androidmanifest.xml some codes but for what that which app dont use any both of these so many apps donsent use theming code so for that i made this guide with this you can use white theme and mod the app so lets start


things you need

apk decompiler and recompiler for ex (apktool , apktool for android , apk manager , etc

and any text editor




decompile app that you want to theme it to white

note: this is only for those apps that do not use theme codes in style.xml and
androidmanifest.xml



so how is it possible to theme that app ?

answer is so simple just add a little code to androidmanifest.xml

open androidmanifest.xml and look for

<activity
android:label="@strings/example





if you found it [example is only for example it may diffrent in apps so i keep it example
see the images and just below that code add this code

android:theme="@*android:style/Theme.Holo.Light"

or you can also use this

android:theme="@*android:style/Theme.DeviceDefault.Light"

see images below
