The reasoning behind this is because we have build bots to automatically compile an updated APK and send it to the chat when I push a commit, also a nice way to directly contact the devs (me).

That's understandable. Apologies if my comment came off as rude.

It probably goes without saying ... but proceed with caution with this and backup ahead of time. I threw caution to the wind and installed a system overlay that my S7 didn't like apparently and left me with a completely black/blank screen. Booting into safe mode just gave me the words "Safe mode" at the bottom but still a black screen. No ability to remove the bad stuff. No option left other than to wipe & restore.

Works great though! Installed some nifty overlays to test beforehand. Looking forward to seeing this project evolve. Thanks dev!

Just curious, how did you wipe and restore if it just gave you a blank screen in safe mode? I'm proceeding with caution on this as well.

Hmm, you applied Android System didn't you? I gave a warning already in the main post.

Yeah, don't touch those unless you're dealing with Samsung Substratum specific themes.

Sounds very nifty. However, I will wait when it's out of beta and everything is working to it's fullest.

Yeah, I did system and system overlay. I just wanted to test it. I'm not complaining. Just wanted to test and report back.

Download a theme that doesn't rely on Android System or theme ready Google Apps, so like Swift Black or Swift Dark on Play Store.

Anyone have recommendations for other quality themes that fit this category? Thanks!

Swift Dark / Black , Reverie , Grvy , PitchBlack etc... They all should work fine for 3rd party apps & Google apps. Just don't tinker with System apps.
