Original thread contents below:

Hello all,

I present to you my Material Design/Dark theme for the S6. Material Design is meant to mimic the stock Google ROMs where available, and the official GApps elsewhere. Material Dark is my spin on a dark version of AOSP. NOTE: The Dark theme is bound to have a few colors broken as there are no strings to theme some of the items. Blame Samsung, not me

Updates will be pretty slow on this theme now that I have been accepted as a Samsung Theme Designer. These themes will be avaialbe in the Theme Store soon!

What is required for this theme to work:

-Root
-The ability to install the Urban theme, whether through the Samsung Theme Store or sideloading the APKs
-FlashFire (or a root file manager to manually copy files and change permissions) or TWRP

Screenshots:









Instructions:

Make sure you are using FlashFire to install this, not Flashify. The FlashFire thread can be found here. You can also flash with TWRP, or install manually as well if you'd like.

To use the theme, all you need to do is have the Urban theme installed before you flash this. You can find Urban in the Theme Store by finding any themes by SIDI (they also have the Pink Theme, Desert, and Anime), then clicking the More button next to "Themes by SIDI" at the bottom of the description. Alternatively, you can manually install the APKs found in this thread using the instructions found there.

1. Make sure you have the Urban theme installed and applied first!!!
2. Flash either Material Design or Material Dark using FlashFire or TWRP.

If there is a certain app you don't want themed, edit /data/overlays/jsonfiles/userjson/br.org.sidi.Urban.json and remove the line for that application (for example, if you don't want the keyboard themed, remove line 22 that says "br.org.sidi.Urban.inputmethod",). Then delete the corresponding folder from /data/app/.

The Material Design Icons ZIP file just contains the individual icons if anyone wants them. It is not a flashable ZIP.

Upgrades can simply be flashed over existing versions of my theme. If something doesn't go right afterwards, refer to the Troubleshooting section below.

Troubleshooting:

If you run into issues with this theme not applying properly, please uninstall it from the Theme app and choose the default theme. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ANOTHER THEME APPLIED BEFORE DELETING ANY FILES. Then, using a file browser with root access, remove any of the following left on your phone:

all of the folders in /data/app/ begining with br.org.sidi.Urban
/data/overlays/font/br.org.sidi.Urban0
/data/overlays/preview/br.org.sidi.Urban
/data/overlays/lockwallpaper/br_org_sidi_Urban_wallpaper.png
/data/overlays/jsonfiles/userjson/br.org.sidi.Urban.json

Reboot after deleting these files. Then re-download Urban using the Theme Store and apply the theme. Make sure the regular Urban theme is working on your phone, then flash the ZIP.

-------------------------------------------------------

Big thanks to @ilardi for helping me test this theme, and @Gunthermic for providing the APKs for a variety of themes, including Urban!

Please let me know if you guys find any problems with this theme. Please PM me a full-resolution screenshot if you want me to be able to fix it easily

Black Mod:

Install the Material Dark theme from the Theme Store, then flash this file:

I'm planning to next, it's just difficult to hack and splice the current themes that are available. I'd prefer to wait until the full tool is available as it looks so much easier and cleaner with it.


Who wants to test the theme for me?

Yeah they promised it by the end of April... It is now mid-May.. I'm kinda disappointed in that. Idk if the theme tool will ever be "publicly available" like they promised. I think you hafta go on their theme tool website and apply to be a "partner" with them (Samsung).

@cambunch are you hacking the theme by 7-zip injecting images into the apk, or have you found a way to decompile and recompile without breaking the theme?

I've spent quite a few hours trying to make my own theme to share for the GS6 and was never able to recompile the apk with different xml overrides.

I am able to recompile the APKs without breaking them (sorta). The signature gets changed so they aren't user-installable, but placing them in the proper folders and setting the right permissions allows them to work.

I will add a post on how to recompile them when I get some time.

It would be awesome if you could replace the background image of the BMW i8 Theme with a white or light grey background
