I found it incredibly puzzling that Sony didn't include a yellow theme in their arsenal so I decided to change that by making one as "authentic as possible": changing the Xperia wallpaper + a lockscreen with an HD picture (the one I thought Sony devs would choose). Considering Topaz is the semi-precious stone usually associated with Yellow, I couldn't find a better name.

This also theoretically works with any Xperia phone with the new Themes system. So please, if you are using another Xperia and it worked, please tell me.

Phones tested so far:
  • Xperia T
  • Xperia V

Push to system/app using:
  • Owner: Read, Write
  • Group: Read
  • Other: Read

Special Thanks:
PS: You are free to do what you want with this theme, include it in your rom, edit, mirror etc.

Download: (you are free to add mirrors so I can include them here)

Ugh, I feel like such a dumbass. I swear I had uploaded it on xda's server. Done anyway.

It's for any (recent) Sony UI that uses Timescape.
I don't know the name, it came in with Timin8r's XperimenT ROM. Sorry couldn't help...

I see you have a V. Can you please report back once done?

He's running XperimenT. The app settings background is by me, you can get it here.
Should work on V too.

Confirm it works on V (Honami Experience V1). Thanks for your work, it looks great against black.

If you have honami conversation white version, you can hardly read the text as it's too bright.

That's why I said it looks good against black ... and it really does. On my white Honami I can't even read sms messages.

Probably that's the reason why they didn't include a yellow one from factory. Factory themes have to perform on both bright and dark environments.

That's also why most of the themes are not fish and not meat. More perfect would be brighter themes for the darker environments, and darker/vivid themes with brighter Wallpapers for the white ROMs.

Right. Unless the honami conversation is modified with black text on colored bubbles, it will be perfect.
