ATTENTION: THIS THEME REQUIRES THEME READY GOOGLE APPS!!!
You must also be running a Marshmallow (Android 6.0 +) ROM that has support for OMS or Layers for this app to work. You must also be fully rooted and have the Substratum app installed (get it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=projekt.substratum).
IF YOU HAVE ISSUES INSTALLING THE APP WHEN CHANGING FROM LAYERS MANAGER TO SUBSTRATUM, THEN PLEASE UNINSTALL MY THEME THEN REINSTALL IT!
THIS THEME IS NOW OPEN SOURCED! https://github.com/daveyannihilation/Domination
Most items in the apps listed below should be themed on devices ranging from hdpi - xxxhdpi however some items may not be, depending on the ROM you're running. Please take a screen shot of any items that aren't themed and either send me an email or chat with me on Hangouts at [email protected] or join the Google Plus community here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/114545910765709545138
1 - Download & install the app
2 - Open Substratum app (which can be found on Play Store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=projekt.substratum)
3 - When Substratum opens give it full root permissions with SuperSU and also check to allow system modifications 4 - Click on Domination and wait for it to create the resource caches then click on Domination again
5 - Inside Domination click on Overlay Manager and then check the switch Select to toggle all overlays. Alternatively you can click on the overlays that you would like to install (keep in mind that some apps, mainly Android system, have different variants that you can choose)
6 - Click the floating action button (fab) down the bottom and select the following options:
For Layers ROMs - Click on Install
For OMS ROMs - Click Compile/Update
7 - Once that finishes compiling/installing, do the following:
For Layers ROMs - When the dialog pops up, click the REBOOT button down the bottom
For OMS ROMs - Wait until the compiling finishes and then check all the overlays you want to install again, click the floating action button (fab) down the bottom and click on Enable Selected (after this you may need to back out to the main section of Substratum, click the 3 dot menu up the top right and select Restart SystemUI)
8 - Enjoy your new dark UI :-)
WHAT'S CURRENTLY THEMED
Inbox (Recommend flashing TeamBlackOut version for better theming)
Nexus Launcher (need to flash the TBO version)
WhatsApp (very buggy, lots of hard code)
*Please note - There are a number of apps which are not compatible with themes due to hard coded text and background colours. There is a thread on xda-developers which has a number of different flashable zips made by Team Black Out that allow some of those apps to be compatible with themes. The thread can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/apps-themeable-hangouts-layers-cmte-t3113192
**Please note - The older AOSP source-built Mms (not the newer Marshamallow version called Messaging) is not completely theme ready unless some items in the code are changed. I have made a flashable zip which can be found here: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347853343
Thanks and happy theming! #WhiteUIMustDie
Thank you for this! You've made my device so beautiful that people stare at my screen. My Nexus 6p has been reborn!
Excellent layer! Dev even helped me with problems that weren't related to the layer itself. A+ layer and service!
Support your theme devs, especially if you value your retina's! #WhiteUiMustDie
Lovin' the dark. Superb theme!! Awesome dev!!
And when I made use of the Hangouts link for help, I got a response within seconds! Amazing!
After trying so many themes finally settled down here. Plus, the developer is super nice and responsive. Please keep up the great work. Thanks!
Excellent theme, responsive developer. Thanks Davey, you have made my phone look great!
Clean lines & excellent use of colors (never too heavy) complement Domination's bold, dark backgrounds. Domination expertly reduces eye strain and the whites & colors pop with balanced contrast; legible notifs - text never looks over saturated, settings icons == class! One request: modest brightening of the overlay shadowing selected text for copy/paste would add to this Layer's theme accessibility. Appreciate all your work DA!
Amazing theme! Would it maybe be possible to theme WhatsApp as well? Other than that this theme is perfect! Simply loving it!
Great layers theme! Wouldn't expect any less from a great themer. ;)
... couldn't find better one on play store! Only theming I don't like is Gmail app (White lines between conversations are ugly IMHO). Everything else is perfect.
It's the only theme I have that says every single layer needs to be updated to version 2.5? No other theme says this. No idea what to do. Update: Thanks for the reply. Yes, I paid for this, the Donate version, not the free one. There is no update available anywhere I can see, at least none on the Play Store. It's been like this for a while, now. Only one not working. Please advise. Thanks. Update 2: Still getting error message saying Theme Ready Google Apps are not installed on my device.
Best black theme there is. Easy to apply. It's all you need really. And it's free!
The best substratum theme for true pitch black on my nexus 6. This developer will actually take the time to help and chat with you if you have an issue. Very cool dude.
The blackness rules! My N6 running Pure Nexus looks better and my battery life is amazing. Thanks David
Best theme I've used on Substratum.
Could you theme the Pandora notification? Currently, it ends up being white and unreadable for me for some reason.
Awesome work by a great guy, try it and you will no longer need sunglasses. A great layers theme, thoroughly themed with an eye pleasingly dark UI and stock colours. Colour options are a nice touch. OBLITERATE THE UNACCEPTABLE WHITE UI WITH DOMINATION!!! #whiteuimustdie
Fantastic theme from one of the best!!
Stand up guy and even better themer! Hopefully this makes it's way to the CMTE but if not, that's OK! Keep up the good work and long live Android!!!
Everything is exacting and well themed...best-in-class theme for a very good price...and, the dev is quite the carnt.
Very well done.. Black is beautiful and this theme with colors is fabulous.. #whiteuihasdied
As always Davey, sickness has been achieved. We spoke already about some things but you do magic already. Big ups bro.
Awesome work by a great guy, try it and you will no longer need sunglasses. #whiteuimustdie
As a whole yes it looks great. But as soon as I try to navigate any menus or any type of drop down/breakout menu its all white with no text. One specific example is Hangouts. If I hit the menu button, I can tell there's a list but I can't see/read any of it.
Go buy this.! You will love it
Amazing theme man. Thanks a lot for your hard work.
Great layers theme! Wouldn't expect any less from a great themer. ;)
I stopped making themes the moment I downloaded this theme! Best one for me. Davey FTW!
Awesomeness speechless... Well done Da vey
Davey does it again, you are the freakin' man!
No white ? Hehehehehehe :-* .. Love you Davey!
Thank you for this! You've made my device so beautiful that people stare at my screen. My Nexus 6 has been reborn!
just wow. this looks so good on my Nexus 6P. absolutely wonderful job! #whitemustdie
Davey is an excellent themer and this is proof positive.
