Great theme so far, could I suggest that you colour the notifications, the auto-brightness button to match the rest of the design as well?
Also could you change the volume background to not be transparent but instead the same colour as the settings app background please?
Another thing I'd like if possible, is to theme the default keyboard as well. Would be awesome if you could, thanks.

I think that's the best theme for mokka gold & gold users...especially if you change icons with icons from "Luxury" them (from Huawei theme app) you will get perfect mokka gold result... If it's possible change the auto brightness check box color into gold like all the others in notifications panel and the 2 sim call buttons from green to gold just like you did in message app (when you choose from which sim you will send the message)!!!

The only thing that I don't like is in Stock mail app when you open a mail the blue background color...
It will be great if you have kept it white...or something like light gold.... No... No... gold because if you want to choose & copy a text from a mail then the "choose" background will be gold again and it will be a problem... So probably white color as original

Thanks for the great work...

About auto-brightness button - haven't found so far a way to change it :( Every theme i saw has this blue checkbox.

Email app - i personally don't use it, but it will look closer and try to fix it.

Is it possible to transfer this color theme to dark theme?
Or can you tell me how I can edit it?

+1 for EMUI 4 version.It works on emui 4,but in certain apps the colors of the font and the background are kind of broken and its hard/impossible to read the text.Also some apps arent themed as in the screenshots,notification bar and quick settings too(obviously since they were entirely changed in emui 5).
