    I had seen couple of screenshots of people using layer themes on their device.
    I tried doing it couple of times but ended up in a boot loop. So..

    1) Can someone explain how to use layer themes properly?

    2) what are some of the best themes I can get?

    3) best combinations of themes?

    4) how to overcome the boot loop if it occurs again?

    First of all to use layer manager you need to have root access once that is done..you need to see whether layer theme you are installing is compatible with your device once that is done you can install that theme on your device.

    I did all the stuff you said but ended in a boot loop. I've even seen some people applying all those layers without any error which I've been using. I don't know where am I going wrong. any further help would be appreciated.

    I've read somewhere that layers doesn't work on oxygen 2.x version properly. it's not stable but the app should have opened for you even if it is not stable. try clearing dalvik cache and cache from recovery and doing it again.

    my first time with layers I applied two at once, one on top of the other and got bootloop.

    Apply layers one at a time(layer pack, not app by app) reboot to apply and reboot when removing before applying another just to be safe

    Sometimes the layer and the app won't get along, in that case just remove the theme from that app, not completely and you should be ok

    Would love if oxygen had an official theming solution like miui coz layers would require root so that won't be official I guess

    Pitch black (discontinued but still works great)
    Spectrum (includes pitch black)

    Sorry no pics, removed root temporarily

    ok thanks a lot. I'll try spectrum and give my review?
    I need to apply 1 layer at a time or set of layers at a time?

    Lol after reading a few threads seems op2 is almost incompatible with layers. Not sure why i made a fuss to get it, but i would like a slick theme.

    I keep checking over at xda too for something that works and wont get me in a bootloop...nothing yet.

    same was the case with me. I too checked different themes but got boot loops everytime. so now I've sticked to a simple dark theme which had surprisingly worked for me.. happy for now. gonna try some other as well, as suggested by some forum members.

    Can we have a dedicated thread to layers themes that actually work? -with screenshots. I think it would help noobs afraid of bootloop too.

    Recommended Themes:
    1. Gred
    2. FA
    3. Art Reborn

    (All works except SystemUI on 2.1.1 & on 3.0 except Framework everything else works)

    4. Evolve
    5. Milos
    6. Elixium

    If you happen to get into bootloop, boot to recovery TWRP, go to mount, mount system, goto advance open filemanage, navigate to system/vendor/overlay and delete the apk causing bootloop.
