I kind of did that on purpose, but I've been toying with making them more prominent a bit. You might see the look get updated in the near future. I'm glad you like my work though and appreciate the constructive criticism.

Niiiiiiccceeeee!!! Did you use the black modded apps package to make twitter and facebook black?

I really like the theme, it looks great. I also love dark/minimalist themes. The only thing i don't like about is it is that the battery indicator looks a bit too bright/happy for the theme.... Maybe a grey indicator in the status bar would work better or maybe a blue or purple one. Just a suggestion. Other than that it looks great.

Nice work ,

Nope. Everything about this theme, aside from the default wallpaper, I made myself.

I've actually been trying to remove almost all color, or at least that's the end goal.... except for green. I wanted to let the Android green stay. I also happen to think it looks good with the black and gray, brings just a slight amount of color. So, unfortunately, I don't intend on changing the battery indicator. Maybe I could provide a grayscale option as a flashable update.zip style installer package at a later date though if I get time.

I'm glad you like what I've got together so far. It's really far from done yet, I plan on more deeply theming a lot of the other apk's, like facebook and twitter that you mentioned, so that they're more black just like the Gmail/Gtalk apps are already.

Perhaps I'm missing something....

since swype apparently was not included w/ 2.2.2, I downloaded the swype apk, but even after reinstalling the theme, I still get the default swype keyboard.

Other than that I'm a big fan, nice work!

The direction s on the original post should state where to find everything. I don't install swype automatically as not everyone has it installed/uses it. Check /sdcard/BlackOut for a D2_Swype.zip and flash it from recovery.

Afaik, it works perfectly. I know a bunch of people who're using it.

Please try and remember to always read the first post from start to finish before reporting "bugs". I'm glad you like my work.

Sweet theme, in the 5 minutes I have looked at it and tried it. No themed FB and Twitter widget though? Something I am missing?

Same here. Neither of them are themed. Stock and LauncherPro.

Hey jav, love this theme. Was wondering if you were going to update for 2.3+ before I installed 2.3. Black Out is where it's at!
