Now that the team is set up, I will be rerouting all of my work. I won't host them on my threads or site anymore, but rather point them to the Team website where even more apps than what I offered are available. We are considering doing versions of our apps with colors but that's on the back burner right now while we get everything fine tuned with the site.. I'll leave my old thread at the bottom of this so you can still have some of my other work but once the site for the team is done, i'll remove my old work.. Thank you to everyone that has been on this journey with me for so long and to those of you that just found me. It has been a blast and having a team set up is going to help me out a lot in many ways.. So go to our site and and our threads and sit back and relax but don't stand up too quickly.... you might BLACK OUT.!

"Welcome to the Dark Side"

Team Black Out is made up of some of the best of the best in the industry when it comes to making Blacked Out Apps and Transparent Apps. We decided to team up and release the largest list of Blacked Out Apps available and add to it as often as possible. Our goal is to offer an ongoing list of apps that are updated as soon as possible after the stock app updates by letting just 1 person update it rather than 3-10 of us doing our own thing and ultimately ending up with the same end result.. an Inverted app. So, by doing this, we will be able to branch out and get the list to over 100 apps in time! Many of us have been doing this for over 3 years and some have just began their journey to the Dark Side but we are a team and will work together like a team. The veterans will help train the new-comers how to start from scratch and fully Black Out an app by editing xml lines, drawable images and smali classes files. On the site, we have guides available and will add more of them in time. We announce the Team over a month ago and now the day is here!

T-BOTs are the Team Black Out Testers. When we update an app or start a new one from scratch, we can put anywhere from 20 minutes to 10 hours into 1 app for all of you and then testing that app can take 10-60 minutes and we don't use every app we Black Out so we're bound to miss some hidden things. Well, this is where our Loyal T-BOTs come into play. Once we update an app they get busy looking for issues for us. This gives us more time to be able to update more apps, start new apps or just have some non-android fun. So make sure you thank the T-BOTs when you get blown away from how amazing these apps are!

Obviously this style is the most popular. We don't theme our apps with images but rather Invert the Colors so you'll;ll have Dark backgrounds and Light texts. This is very popular and has become something that many avid Android users have come to thoroughly enjoy this look so we will do our best to give you more of what you love!

Transparent apps have become more popular the last year or so and some members of the Team have been offering them for a while now. Our transparent series of app are called Clear Apps. Being able to see your wallpaper while you';re using your favorite apps is just cool! We still have to update the site with all of our Clear Apps...

Ok kids... click on "Welcome to the Dark Side" at the top and it will take you to our official Team Black Out website! All downloads are hosted there only to keep track of everything. If you've used any of our apps in the past in your Aroma installers or in your ROM, you can still use them. Link back to our SITE wherever you post our content tho. Do not post something in a different forum using our work and then PM us to let us know and hope it's ok with us.... It isn't. Ask first and we'll work with you but ask for forgiveness and we have a problem.

first thing I did was like when v3 first came before it silently updated. removed updates.deleted vending.com. vending and vendingupdator folders in /data/data. boot to recovery to flash the zip. cleared cache and dalvik. that usually works but not for this. installing the apk never did since it's a system app for dinc cm7

OP updated with Version 3.1.5...

as far as the error buying apps, it's a certs files issue I think.. I had it start doing it on mine also but the new one works... it's something stupid Google has done... cause it even errors on the stock version on some roms...
