Hi, I'm going to milk this theme again for one last time, (development started on this for S7 edge thread since MM days) I'm currently on an S8 port ROM for S7 edge and this theme is my daily driver for some time now, and now I'm sharing it. It fixes a lot of glitches with the last update I've shared from the original thread since I got to upgrade to S8 rom, so I assumed that it's also going to get fixed on an actual S8.
This theme terpsichora named after a skill name of my favorite fictional character from the anime Hunter X Hunter, Niferpitou, but you can never see him here, it's just a simple dark theme with a lots of unique customization you cannot find on other themes from the store, try it and see for yourself

THEME GOT SAME SKU, CHOOSE AND INSTALL ONLY ONE APK, UNINSTALL FIRST THE THEME BEFORE TRYING OTHER VERSION

INSTALLATION for rooted devices (you should do all this before 5min trial ends) :

-install and apply theme
-go fast to your root file manager and navigate:
-root/data/overlays/preferences folder
-delete all its contents (7 to 9 files) not the actual preferences folder.
-then navigate to:
-root/data/overlays/jsonfiles
-from there, CUT and paste the contents (1file) of trialjson folder to inside of userjson folder.
-restart phone and reapply theme.

INSTALLATION (unrooted)
1. Enable Developer options in Settings (About device > Software info > press on Build number 7 times or more). Now it should
be visible in the Settings Menu.

2. Download and install the theme. Open the theme store and apply the theme (FREE TRIAL).

3. Close the store, then head to Developer options > Running services > find both Themes/Samsung Themes and STOP BOTH.
Note: MAKE SURE BOTH AREN'T PRESENT IN RUNNING SERVICES ANYMORE AFTERWARDS.

4. Go back to Settings > Apps > Samsung Themes > Storage > CLEAR BOTH DATA & CACHE.

That's it. The theme is applied permanently and there is no need for a 3rd-party app like PDP.
Note: The theme will still be applied even after you restart your device, just don't open the Theme store and make sure its services aren't present in Running Services.

*with constant update form Samsung this nonrooted instruction may not work anymore, sorry about that.

*lightnofit version got default (white) colored notification cards, while the other one got dark notification backgrounds

*tip: since title text for notification on 3rd party apps cannot be themed it's dark on dark backgrounds if you're rooted and want to use this theme (the regular version) for a loog time just decompile your framework.-res.apk and look for res/values/colors.xml, edit the value hex color code of the line "notification_title_text". change to ffc8c8c8 or ffffffff. recompile, backup first and make a flashable zip of your framework and flash via recovery. (I'm not responsible for anything bad might happen, follow my tip at your own risk)

Hmm the non-rooted method keeps resetting on me. Sure wish this was officially available in the theme store, I'd definitely pay for it. It's a really nice theme.

Root means root of your sd card not a root folder.
