If you would like to see Dark Android ported to another ROM, I gladly accept requests and I will see if I or someone else can do so in a reasonable amount of time. If you would like to test or help in development, please email me.

As always, I am not responsible for anything that happens to your phone and all mods, including this theme and all others, have the possibility of damaging your phone. I will do my best to support my theme and assist with any errors that may be caused by this theme. Please read all instructions before installing. Please remember that I do this as a hobby after my full time job so please allow adequate time for me to respond to a question or issue.

For Tranquility, you can also install through the toolbox. A partial theme is included with the toolbox, but you can use the Tranquility Toolbox Install Package to install the full version through the toolbox using the below instructions:
To install Blue Droid through Tranquility toolbox:

  1. Copy BlueDroid.tar to Tranq/custom_themes/ directory on your sdcard (if it does not exist, create it)

  3. Select “Theme Options”

  6. Scroll to the right until you get to “Custom Theme” and select
  7. If you get an error saying there are no themes in the custom_themes directory, back out and correct the problem with the directory. It must be named correctly and in the correct location for it to see the themes.
  8. Select BlueDroid.tar
  9. Select “OK” to apply theme
  10. Your phone will reboot as part of the installation

There is also a goodies pack that contains lots of icons, wallpapers, LP docks, and alternate fonts. Also available are themed versions of Google Voice (0.4.2.13), Launcher Pro (0.8.2), Widget Locker (1.2.7) (clear and normal sliders), and a black and white themed Swype keyboard. To use the extra content in the goodies pack and market apps, download them into a folder on your sdcard. The Swype keyboard is in a flashable update.zip while the Market Apps must be installed like a normal app after you remove the .zip from the filename.

The goodies pack should be extracted onto you sdcard
The icons can be applied using Launcher Pro, Desktop Visualizer, Folder Organizer, or one of the many other choices for icon customization.
The docks can be used with Launcher Pro.
The fonts are in flashable zips so once extracted, they can be flashed.
Of course, the wallpapers are applied the normal way using the gallery selection or other tool.
To install the market apps from your sdcard, remove the .zip extension and install like any other app. (You must remove any existing version of the app prior to installing)

For more information about how to use Launcher Pro to modify your dock and icons, check out their user guide here.

To use the Widget Locker skins, download the zip file and extract it to an empty directory on your computer. Review the ReadMe.txt file in the extracted files for instructions on applying the skin. If you have any issues, please post your question to the thread or PM me. Please do not ask “How do I apply the Widget Locker skin?” before reading the ReadMe.txt in the zip file. I will direct you to read it and then come back and ask a specific question.
