    Hey guys,

    Just flashed COS12 through TWRP. Lollipop seems good:p:p
    But is there a way to change the white background in settings and app drawer to a darker one? I remember some have dark blue or sth like that. How to do that?

    Not that I'm aware of. Could be wrong - I've been using Flux theme for ages, so I just stayed with it when I moved to CM12s

    Have a search for a mostly stock theme, but with dark background. I'm sure there will be one.

    You'll need to install a different launcher. Apex allows you to change the color and as transparency. I'm sure Nova Launcher will allow you to do the same too.

    Thanks, but I already had that as black and it doesnt seem to change the Settings background. At least it doesnt on mine.

    It won't affect settings. Only themes do that.

    Your settings should have a black background with that theme, strange. I've used it before but always end up going back to KlearKat, which has a dark background as well.

    That's odd. What about the background on other things in settings, wifi, battery, etc.or messenger, dialer? What rom are you on?

    Actually, none of them are dark. Just the wallpaper and lock screen. I'm running Exodus ROM.

    Yes, thanks. That's why I chose the theme because I wanted everything dark. I'm running Exodus.

    Strange. I assume the same happens with you try other themes as well. The only thing that changes are the lock screen and wallpaper?

    Thanks for your help with this. I decided to reinstall the theme engine (I'm using Exodus) cos12_app_themer_port. I then dk and installed Dark Material and got a "Failed to install theme...". That's probably why I only see a partial installation. I got the same thing when I attempted a different theme.

    Thinking about swapping out the Trebuchet launcher with Google Now launcher. Anybody else do that? Pro/Cons?
