Team Black Out Presents...The Dark Side of the Source...Black and Clear Apps

Search This thread
I like my custom themes and apps better than Substratum anyhow, but I agree that it's effed up that Google would deny those that don't want to root their phone the ability to install these types of rootless themes. I figured Google would be happy not having rooted devices which would mean more money made through the Play Store other than going to guys like TBO or me for a custom theme or custom apps. Sounds kinda counterproductive to me. Then again, Google does stupid things from time to time.

It's not just unrooted users that are affected. They're blocking all OMS overlays. It hits the unrooted users harder though, as they paid for Andromeda to be able to apply themes without needing root. But I might posit that it hurts more for the people who have been enjoying RRO Layers since the beginning.

I forgot a couple of changes in black, so it's clear, but v2 is coming having black actually black, and bugs fixed.
I'm sorry, these things shouldn't happen but I'm guess I'm human after all

Thx Mate, excellent work as usual but clear WhatsApp is now black? Plus if i try to set wallpaper to none its crashing :)

Will do a fresh install and see if it persists.

Im on 8.0.

Regards!

Edit:
Even after a fresh install it remains black and wallpaper crashes, no other theme applied, no expose, how may I assist?

Yes im using V2 clear.

Ok so the fix is worse than the bug, I'm sorry, guess this means I have not to rush things. The obvious mistake here seems that to fix black from being clear, I've made clear black. Are we clear on this?

I read the comment above and installed clear version, and the backgrounds were all black as in the black version that is what I use.
I just put a comment for you to know.
Greetings.

My opinion.

Version black is ok.
Version clear is black too.

No hurry, black is fine too :)

The error above is the only i see, the pid is the one from whatsapp, logcat does not show anything related to the crash :(

The only hint is that:

Can someone give me an update on what's happened since N?
I've been stuck on a stock device for the last year or so, and now it looks like everything changed. I tried to thumb through this thread, but at over 2,000 pages it isn't going too well.

Thanks in advance. Hope I didn't stir anything up.

    Team Black Out is a team of both veteran app "Inverters" and new-comers that want to learn. With over A lot of popular Blacked Out and Transparent Android apps in our list, we are sure to not only amaze you but to guarantee once you use our Themed Apps you'll Black Out for a while.. The Team isn't doing ROMS though. We are simply combining the great minds of some of the Best in the Business when it comes to making apps Blacked Out or Transparent. We have only a few team members now because some are planning on being lightly active, so if you're already into doing Blacked Out apps, hit us up if you wanna join. We don't want to train people from the ground up but you don't have to be the best either. We will are hosting guides on this site to help walk people through the process of Inverted Apps...



    T-BOTS.png





    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 have Dark backgrounds and Light texts. This is very popular and has become something that many avid Android users have come to thoroughly enjoy so we will do our best to give you more of what you love!



    Transparent.png




    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 apps are called Clear Apps. Being able to see your wallpaper while you're using your favorite apps is just cool! We'll be offering our own wallpapers soon for you to use!









    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.



    Thanks
