How To Use / Install? :
  • First Install Substratum from here and Do Not Update in future from Play Store/Apk Mirror/Mirrors. This ensures that theme can be applied / updated without rebooting your device as the lastest version restricts to legacy mode and you've to reboot to apply overlays.
  • Then Install my theme, Graphi.
  • Then open substratum and allow root and read/write permissions.
  • Click on Graphi - For Sony and then click on Select to toggle all overlays.
  • You can customize the theme by selecting options from drop down box like System accent, background color etc.
  • Finally click on FAB ( pink floating action button ) and select Build and Enable.
  • Wait for it to install overlays. Voila your phone is themed.

For Updating To New Versions:
Please Clean Installed Overlays for properly updating to newer versions. Then just reapply the theme.


NOTE:
If you haven't used Substratum before, for having pitch black as background (like one in screenshots) select pitch black from Background Color dropdown menu.
Whenever you install a new app, just reboot your phone to properly show notifications.
Select the dark theme in Music(Walkman) application.
Select Night Mode in Twitter
Select Dark / Night Mode in Substratum ( newer versions )
Sony Clock and Sony Contacts won't be themed. Please use Google Clock.
Select Dark Theme in Xperia Keyboard Skins

Tested On : Xperia Z5 (Stock Rooted)
Changelog:

Some of your bugs could be fixed by searching in my O_sense assets, I give you the permission for this.
Quick Tip: Any app theme could be usually found in the main Android-Mainfest.xml beside the app icon and name codes

EX: Ampere app (because it is the only APK available in my apktool at the moment :P) :
in AndroidManifest.xml check this line:
Code:
<application android:allowBackup="false" android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher" android:label="@string/app_name" android:name="com.gombosdev.ampere.MyApplication" android:resizeableActivity="true" android:theme="@style/AppTheme_light">
Check the last part called android:theme this is the main theme for the app so you will basically go to res/values/styles.xml and search for that style and modify it as you want! So I go there and then I find this:
Code:
<style name="AppTheme_light" parent="@style/AppTheme_base_light" />
This means that the default Style that we want to edit is being modified by other Style called AppTheme_base_light so you can do one of the following things:
1 - Navigate to that style and modify it manually.
2- Change it to the dark style which you already have in your framework-ress but don't forget to write "@android:style/ first"

Happy Theming

Ok, thank you bro. Will update on any progress. The only thing that is messy is sony organiser( clock ) app. It is giving me a hard time, but I'll resume the project now onwards. One more thing is that, the reply button in notification for WhatsApp and stock messaging app is dark on dark.

Yes I know that, there is no problem on framework theming. What I meant was the hint color in quick reply button ( in notification ) is dark on dark in stock messaging and WhatsApp only. For rest ( Google messaging, etc ) it works ( so far I've tested). Anyways, I'll have to check the resources again properly.

I'm currently at work, but I'll upload a test version that contains some bugs here and there like I mentioned in my OP when I get home. I'm using my theme since Jan, the bugs are not much of a big deal.
You'll need substratum in order to use this theme. I'm gonna devote this weekend in fixing the theme. Once its fixed almost, I'm gonna add new apps to the list.
Thanks for opting to contribute. I'll upload the project to Github, you can import in Android Studio to play with it. Even if you don't know app development I need someone to constantly test the theme and report bugs, so you're most welcome to test. Just wait for sometime for me to upload.
Also if people can make a list of apps to theme it'll be great.

Note:
Also note that this theme will work only in legacy mode(automatically detected in substratum) so if you install some new app and the notification of that app shows black text on black background, restart your phone or reapply the theme selecting Android System and System UI.

Thank you.
Thank you @shehabskull I don't know how I missed Android manifest to check for application style.
