Here's a little contribution to the community. This is NOT my work. I just put them in a zip that I use with any roms I run and decided to share. Thanks to Chaos ^_^ since I extracted them from his theme zip and thanks to Archangel for Inverted Velvet.apk!

This flashable zip file contains a Blacked Out Google Now and Google Now Launcher (Google App version 4.1.29.1706998.arm), as well as material dark calculator.

ANDROID 5.X ROMS ONLY!! (This is in case someone with a different device wants to use this)

*Disclaimer: Use at your own risk. I take no responsibility for your phone, hunger, acts of God, etc.

Please hit "Thanks" if this helps you!

Instructions:

If you're running a stock based rom or a rom with Gapps already installed:
  1. Reboot into recovery
  2. Make a backup of your current rom
  3. Flash the Google Now zip
  4. Reboot
  5. Profit from the darkness!

If you're flashing a new rom:
  1. Install rom, Gapps, SuperSU, etc. as normal
  2. Flash the Google Now zip last
  3. Reboot
  4. Profit from the darkess!

Changelog:
Feb-21-2015
  • Updated Google App theming to version 4.1.29.1706998.arm

I'm not sure if I will keep updating this for new versions of Google Now Launcher.

    Upgraded to the latest Google App version on 2/21/2015. I tested it by installing the latest Google App update, having everything go back to white, reboot to recovery, flash zip and voila.

    Enjoy and please click the "Thanks" button and someone please confirm that it works for you!

    Is the dock setup with 7 apps in this build?

    No. Mine is like that in the screenshot because I always change my DPI to 460. Maybe I should edit that screenshot to avoid confusion.

    EDIT: I removed the bottom half of that screen as to not confuse anyone. Thanks for pointing it out!
