Welcome to Dark Android Designs

Welcome to my new site! I will attempt to include content that is useful for the DroidX and for the ROMs that I create content for (Tranquility and RubiX). As I post content, I will post on  Android ForumsMy Droid World, Droid Forums, XDA, and Twitter.

If content is ROM specific, I will post it in the forum that is home to that particular ROM. For example, Tranquility based material will be posted at My Droid World and RubiX based material will be posted in Droid Forums. If it applies to any ROM, I will post in multiple, if not all, of the above forums.

I hope the content I provide is useful to some people, as I enjoy doing the work. If you like my work and want to help me continue my work, please make a donation in whatever amount you feel is appropriate. Any donations will be used for the development of content by purchasing graphic editing tools, web space, and other items needed. 

I would like to thank everyone who has supported me so far and I hope I continue to provide and improve the content that I create for the Android community. I hope everyone finds the content I provide enjoyable and feel free to post comments and feedback as well as suggestions and requests for app themes, tweaks, or other mods.

Dark Android Themed Swype Keyboards

These are beta versions of some various Swype keyboards that I themed. There are 2 red, 2 green, and 2 blue versions. The v1 of each has larger keys and letters than the other. If you try, please let me know what you think below.

* I am aware of the white text for OPT, SYM, etc… I have not been able to find where I can set the color and no one I have asked has been able to find it either. If I do find it, I will change it as well.

Install through bootstrap

Themed Gingerbread Keyboards

Themed Gingerbread Keyboards

These are 3 themed gingerbread keyboards that I created for my themes. These should be compatible with many different ROMs, so I thought I would put them out there for others to use. I know they have been installed and work with RubiX, Tranquility, Liberty, and GummyJAR. Other ROMs should be fine as well but as with any mod, you should backup first.

(Included with Dark Android theme for Tranquility 3.7, GummyJAR 2.5, Liberty 1.0, and RubiX 1.9.5)

To install:

  1. Copy zip to your sdcard
  2. Reboot into Bootstrap Recovery
  3. Install zip from sdcard
  4. Choose zip
  5. Browse and select zip
  6. Install zip
  7. When complete, use back button or power button to back up
