Yes is not that much but for example now you can swype from the middle of the screen to pull up app drawer and the longpress shortcuts feature has a new UI.

I did not know that, good stuff. When Dave has time I'm sure he'll update it. But you could try Substratum if possible.

Hoping someone could help with this one.

Substratum/Dom ination

A couple of issues:

#1* When choosing accent color:

I cannot get Lime accent color back.* I had it (helps greatly when using gboard) before, and now I can't get it back.

#2* Notification items such as player controls, etc. are dark grey instead of white.* This too I once had and cannot get back.

As always, really appreciate all of your time, effort, and work.

Hey bud,

Issue #2 is a result of issue #1. The latest version of Substratum is buggy as fudge, so this is what I have been doing. Open the Subs app, slide open the navigation drawer and click on Overlay list. Click the fab, flick the switch to select all overlays and choose Uninstall overlays. Once that is done, reboot the phone. When you boot back into Android, open Substratum again, click on Dumbination and then choose the apps you want themed (or flick the switch at the top to select all). Don't forget to change your accent to Lime. Then click the fab and select Build & Enable. Go make a coffee and then when Subs finishes... voila! You should have your Lime accent back.

Let me know if that works or not, feel free to hit me up in PM if you need to

Davey, your instructions were dead on. I'm all fixed up thanks to you.
Needless to say I'll follow these steps when I have Substratum issues in the future.
Thanks for saving my bacon again sir.
Kind regards,
Jeff

Hi guys,

I just want to install one specific app (google keep), and I was wondering how I can do this? I have seen zip files for specific apps on the team's website, but I am unable to sideload them into my galaxy S5.

Is there some guide or tutorial I can follow? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Because Keep is an app made by Go_Ogle, it is packaged in a zip which needs to be flashed in a custom recovery like TWRP (are there any others anymore???), so do you have a custom recovery installed on your phone?

I just checked the TBO Resources page and there are 4 YouTube files, but only 2 real variants... it seems like someone posted the zips and then re-uploaded a quick fix.

there's:

ThemeReadyYouTube12.23.60-LP-MM-N-arm64.zip @ 23.6MB
and
ThemeReadyYouTube-12.23.60-arm64-LP-MM-N.zip @ 17.4MB

I'm assuming that since the TBO updater only shows the 2nd one (17.4MB) then I want that one. But I'm curious as to what the difference is -- and wanted to point out that if the original (first one listed above, 23.6MB) was uploaded erroneously, it may be a good idea to remove it from the Resources page to avoid confusion between files with the same version (just in case someone forgot Y'all aren't human or anything, amirite?).

Thanks again y'all, keep on doin' the lord's work!

Hi, thanks for the info. No, I do not have TWRP installed, nor is my phone rooter.. I was really hoping to find a standalone apk file I could sideload onto my galaxy S5 (at&t variant).

Does the official version of Go0gle Keep still not have a dark/black theme option?

You are technically correct, the best kind of correct. The larger, older zip was not correct so I have deleted it and it's arm64 partner. What is left are the correct zips. Thanks for reminding me 🤘

Unfortunately you can't install these without either root or a custom recovery. Unfortunately you have neither. Have you considered flashing TWRP and a custom ROM? They're good for what ails ya, namely YuckShiz and its Fisher-Price styling.

Unfortunately no, Keep doesn't have a built in dark theme. Go_Ogle doesn't believe in giving users what they want. They much prefer to blind us all with their horrible white UIs. Just horrendous.

You can using substratum, not rooted, but yeah it's an external solution. Just discovered it yesterday and am using cerj's big blue overlay.
