Dark Gmail FOUND Version 2.3.2 (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-themes/104950-inverted-2-3-2-gmail-test-release.html) I pulled the apk from the update zip from the link (dont want to take any chances flashing it)

UPDATE- Replaced the check boxes on the left of your emails with the gingerbread ones to better tie the whole dark theme in with gingerbread!

EDIT if having issues
go into recovery, and mounting both /system/ and /data/


Remove old gmail

adb shell

rm /system/app/gmail.apk

rm /system/app/gmail.odex

PUSH NEW GMAIL
adb push Gmail.apk /system/app/

exit

reboot.

:cool:

Much thanks once again! :) :) :)

Blacks are so sexy on this phone, beyond just looking great(where's the screen, where's the casing, I don't know!) and the power savings.

Hmm this is odd, I'm having issues.
ADB Push is giving me permission denied.
I also have Root Explorer and made sure /system/app is read/write access.
I also tried using Root Explorer to move the gmail.apk to /system/app and rebooting several times and nothing. Gmail app won't start at all.
Also tapping on gmail.apk to try to install it to /system/data gives a, "installation not succeed"

I have root working just fine, do I need to install the unsecure boot image?

hmm. Make sure your root is secure. denied on adb push sounds like a root issue to me

Okay so I followed the steps, except I just did it with root explorer since I don't have a computer by me. The new gmail.apk just kept saying that it would not install so I put the old one back, and now that one won't install either. Help please? :)

Delete gmail.apk and gmail.odex from system/app with root explorer.
then dont install the black version just copy and paste in into system/app and reboot
that should work

my apologies, guess youll have to wait until you get near a computer unless someone else can guide you in a better direction with root explorer

Do you think it will work with a computer and adb, at least to get my stock gmail back? I dunno why it would be different then root explorer.

Yeah this is weird. Before I had to do it in recovery and adb push, and it worked.
Now with the updated gmail i tried that, and it won't push, i move it with root explorer, rebooted, and gmail isn't detected.
keeps giving me permission denied again.
I think we need an updated root.

Just delete gmail.apk from system/apps and then download from market and it will install

Yeah ill try when I get home with adb. Maybe it doesn't work with root explorer because the system is running when you delete gmail or something. Thanks anyways! Ill get it working and report back later :)
