Hey everyone, welcome to my thread. I'm hoping to see some familiar faces around here so please pop in and give a quick hello! For those who aren't familiar with me, I've been designing themes for LG for a few years now and have supported devices from the V10, V20, G4, G5, G6, G7, V30, V40 and now I welcome the G8! It's been quite a ride the past few years and I've really enjoyed this and would like to say thank you to everyone who has popped in to take a look or gotten involved with any of my threads. So the purpose of this thread is to provide support, feedback and have an open channel to communicate with everyone regarding updates, ideas, and give support to those who need it. The only rules are to be kind and do not start or engage in negative discussions. For the most part that seldom happens because that's just not how I do things around here so we shouldn't have to worry about any of that stuff. If someone does come in and rips on one of you or me just report the user and one of our moderators will send them on their way. I encourage people to post their screenshot setups or other things that come from using any of my themes. For example you may have set a custom dpi or something and found it looks really clean. Definitely share that with people here and mention what you set it to be so others can give it a whirl. Now the important part when using any of my themes is to actually read the app description when you're looking at it on Google Play. I often post important information there that you may find useful in order to get the best experience. Also I am very active on Google plus too so be sure to follow my LG themes collection there as I post things there too. Rip You can also follow or join my LG Themes community on Facebook called "LG Themes" and also follow me on Twitter "@benczemark" or Instagram "markbencze". Anyway let's get started. This thread will hopefully grow over time, as will this page. I'm taking all the posts on it in the event that I need to post more information about various themes. That's just how I do things. So let's begin. Introducing.....

Pixel Experience


Pixel Experience is based on Android Pie and is a very clean and simplistic theme. It has some additional options like adaptive/dynamic icons. Please note that most themes will likely not have this feature as LG has coded their theme system in a way that with dark themes this actually can cause some major issues. I was hoping with pie they would have fixed this but they have not.
So you can go into settings, display, home and choose your icons shapes. Notice that you now have an option for circular icons!!!! LG previously does not have this option included but I have added it to the theme so you'll probably want to change your icons to round.

Another favorite thing of mine is to unlock the themes app icon shortcut. You'll notice this present in my screenshots. To enable this you'll need to use something like quick shortcut maker or nova and make an activity shortcut under wallpaper&themes and then set it as a shortcut and you'll have quick access to the themes app.

So enough chit chat already right? Let's show a few screenshots shall we?

Pixel Experience Dark


Pixel Experience is based on Android Pie Dark mode and is a very clean and simplistic theme. It has some additional options like adaptive/dynamic icons. Please note that most themes will likely not have this feature as LG has coded their theme system in a way that with dark themes this actually can cause some major issues. I was hoping with pie they would have fixed this but they have not.
So you can go into settings, display, home and choose your icons shapes. Notice that you now have an option for circular icons!!!! LG previously does not have this option included but I have added it to the theme so you'll probably want to change your icons to round.

Known issue with music app navigation bar. A work around is to use the app navbar apps and set the navbar for the music app to #202124 to match the rest of the theme. This is a system bug that LG has yet to address and all dark themes that have adaptive icons will have this. This is the only work around.

Another favorite thing of mine is to unlock the themes app icon shortcut. You'll notice this present in my screenshots. To enable this you'll need to use something like quick shortcut maker or nova and make an activity shortcut under wallpaper&themes and then set it as a shortcut and you'll have quick access to the themes app.

Twilight


This is Twilight an LG Home+ theme for your LG G8 ThinQ This theme is a premium quality theme like no other Home theme+. What you see is what you get and that is quality and attention to details! Twilight is a dark theme with bright gradient accents throughout. The Dark Notifications compliment the ui and battery life! The app icons have a slight gradient to them, with some more noticeable than others. This theme does not support adaptive icons as some of the key features of this theme are blocked by enabling the adaptive icons. If you'd prefer adaptive you will need to use a third party launcher like Hyperion or Nova.
No need to run a third party theme system any more, just use the system theme chooser and you can enjoy all the benefits of an advanced theme system.

To apply the theme simply go into settings/display and select themes. From there select Twilight, and push apply! then reboot and then reapply the theme again. It's a bit more in depth than other themes but given the complexity of this premium theme it is required for all elements to be themed properly.

That's it! Simple, easy and quick.

This theme is also meant to run at the highest resolution, with the lowest stock setting for the actual display size. Larger sizes may cause some elements to look slightly off. If this happens please lower the display sizes of the iconography.

If you run into any issues please send me an email directly instead of leaving a poor rating. Often I am very quick to reply and great to solve any issues. The review system is not meant to be a support channel!

Quick tip... Search and install the app "Quick Shortcut Maker" on google play. Install, then long press on your home screen and select the 1x1 quick shortcut maker widget and drag it on your home screen. Then in the activities tab, scroll down to"wallpaper & themes" and expand it. touch 1st option at the top of the list that doesn't have and upwards arrow. Hit Create" button at the bottom and now you have a themes app shortcut you can place on your desktop!!!

Thank you so much for your support and I hope you enjoy this theme. I've worked extremely hard on this and by far it was the most challenging and time consuming project I've ever made!

Now for the screenshots cause really that's all we really want to see right? Did you read any of this stuff anyway?

G Theme 3




t's back!!! This is G Theme 3. Why G Theme you ask? Well I think you can figure that out when you use it what it's all about. This theme is a premium quality theme like no other Home theme+. What you see is what you get and that is quality and attention to details! G Theme 3 is a dark theme with beautiful colors and designs throughout it. The Dark Notifications compliment the ui and battery life! This theme supports adaptive icons and I recommended choosing circle which is unlocked as a feature and can be accessed from going into the settings application and then going into display, home and choose the icon shape. Due to this the music app does have a light overlay at the bottom which is a bug that LG should address!!! For real LG fix that will ya.

Now this is the important part. This theme is only for LG devices running UX 8, Android 9.0 pie. If you are running a different LG UX or android version this will not work and if you upgrade from the above this theme may not work properly. It is presented on an "as is basis". I do my best to try and update to allow for the theme to function on all devices as best I can and as soon as I can. However due to LG's interesting update cycle sometimes one device may update prior to others.

To apply the theme simply go into settings/display and select themes. From there select Twilight, and push apply! then reboot and then reapply the theme again. It's a bit more in depth than other themes but given the complexity of this premium theme it is required for all elements to be themed properly.

That's it! Simple, easy and quick.
If you're using the V40 or any other UX8 device that doesn't have the seamless wallpapers here's a link to one which will change to the one shown in the theme upon applying the theme! For those that do already have seamless wallpapers you will see this new option now available in your list of delectable seamless wallpapers instead of the silly pink one that was previously there.


Please note that refunds will not be given for installations on non LG G8 or LG V40, LG 50 UX 8 (running Pie) Devices. As the title of the theme clearly indicates which device this is for and this app description does specify which OS version is supported..
This theme is also meant to run at the highest resolution, with the lowest stock setting for the actual display size. Larger sizes may cause some elements to look slightly off. If this happens please lower the display sizes of the iconography.

If you run into any issues please send me an email directly instead of leaving a poor rating. Often I am very quick to reply and great to solve any issues. The review system is not meant to be a support channel!

Thank you so much for your support and I hope you enjoy this theme. I've worked extremely hard on this and by far it was the most challenging and time consuming project I've ever made!
