The new YouTube dark theme isn't active yet and I'm not used to changing things in there on Substratum. I stick to colors.xml generally.

In Play Store I've checked the other values folders and found nothing. May be the color is hard-coded in the smali which I have no experience with whatsoever. In the mean time I've changed the main background of the app to be red to match the rest of my theme so that the text can be seen in black/grey over it.


I just got the new one but settings still themed. I've only added new colors about a month ago. So no idea. Can't be hard coded. That's a subs theme

Telegram has its own built in dark mode though..?

Also I read a few comments that Facebook is the hardest to theme but are there any updates?

I stopped using the TBO YouTube apk. I use the black YouTube theme on Magisk now. It's more up to date and combines ad block and background playback all in one. The last time I used the TBO YouTube apk, I kept getting ads.

Dark != Black or Clear lol

Besides, there are soooooooooo many inconsistencies and places with dark text and light background.

But don't let me stop you, have fun using their built in "Dark" theme 不不不

Yeah we don't have a member who themes Facebook anymore unfortunately. The app is coded so terribly that it was consuming him.

Their dark mode is actually black on my AMOLED screen, the only parts that are grey are the settings panel and upper header. I haven't had any of the issues you mentioned and I've been using their supplied theme for the last 3 years. Thanks for the update though.

Their dark mode ISN'T actually black on any screen. It's not too far away from black, but it's not actually properly black. Regardless of whether it is or not, it's not a properly themed black app. And if you haven't had any of the issues that I mentioned then you obviously haven't gone into all the sections of the app that I have.

Not sure why you felt the need to post something like this in a thread which is dedicated to making apps black and clear in the first place? What is the point of it? I don't think there really is one.

Thanks for the update though.

Sorry if this had been asked. I've tried a search.
I installed clearplaystore (worked fine) but I notice it was labeled 'O' for Oreo.
I can't find a black or clear Google app that has the 'O' labeled in the title of the zip file.
Is there one available? Or does the one with no label mean it works on Oreo?
Thanks

The items labeled LP-MM-N should work just fine.
I still use several of these on Oreo, including Google App.

Thanks a lot for the response!
But since posting I started getting a pop up message (and I'm not going to remember this exactly) but it was something like com.android.google.finsky...) has stopped
I searched and finsky has to do with playstore or play services.
I looked around to see if I could find it and possibly clear cache but had no luck.
I restored a backup.
Have you or anyone else encountered this after installing playstore?
