Known issues (no solution at this moment):

- few apps/settings not themed: motion control, voice control

2017-02-22 RC 4:
- re-written the whole theme, separate global framework from individual apps (should solve some problems with not visible elements of not themed system apps)
- manual installation of .apk now works - it's visible (but white background...), unfortunately there is still problem with not visible text in header
- calculator pad is now transparent (cool... :cool: )

sweet mother of God! finally a full dark theme. downloading and will report back

edit: so far so good.
one small issue is this: when you sellect a message, the search bar becomes white and the text is hard to read.
also in dialer, when you select the Contacts tab, the search bar is also white with grey text ( do not know if this is intended or not )

Thanks for this theme, but I have to ask you if the writing can put white rather than gray. They would see much better on a dark theme. I also hope you'll go to even change the app settings, calendar, telephone management, and file manager. Hello and thanks.

It's not so simple to make a dark theme with full white text - there are some limitations in EMUI theming. But it's not the last version, so stay tuned :)
