NOTICE FOR NEXUS & PIXEL USERS:After updating to the February firmware version you might experience issues applying the theme. In some cases it takes a very long time installing the overlays or applying the overlays have no effect. The issues are due to changes in the latest version of the Substratum app and you fix this by downgrading to version 551 at apk mirror

Important information

Installing / updating theme:The theme is stable to use on all ROMs with support for Substratum. The Substratum app on legacy devices is not yet perfectly stable though, and if you run in to problems when installing or updating the theme please try to fix this by clearing Substratum app cache and reinstall both the Substratum app and the theme, followed by a reboot. Don't forget to grant all prompted permissions when opening the Substratum app the first time. If it's still not fixed please contact me by email or Telegram for personal assistance.Any issue related to installation or updating is a Substratum app legacy issue, and not a theme issue, so I would appreciate if you don't tell me about it in the review system but instead reach out to me personally.

Easy fix for app issues:If an app stops working as it should after you update it from the Play Store, please reapply the overlay + reboot

Notice for 7.1.1 users:The Substratum app will display a warning message about using themes on a 7.1.1 device. You can ignore this warning when using this theme as it have full support for this version.


Question:How do I apply the theme?
Answer:You use the Substratum theme engine app to apply the theme.

Question:Why are the notifications background white on some overlay versions?
Answer:The notification colors are partially set within the frameworks and it's not possible to theme the frameworks in all Android versions. This is why the notifications are white on some ROMs.
