Original thread: http://www.droidforu...e-ui-2-2-a.html


Many moons ago a phone called the Droid was released by Verizon & Motorola. It had so much hype and love behind it because of what it meant for smartphones & Android. The ability to root and theme and customize your phone. Open Source at its finest - code being shared and posted left and right. All the things that this little robot could do was discovered seemingly for the first time. Along with that CM blew up - everything was getting Android 2.0 - Eclair. Then some guy named REALigion mocked up the beautiful minimalist theme. Looking for help with the coding. So here came XEUDOXUS to help out. AND DARK EDGE UI was born. A great themer Koveleski a.k.a. KovDev also joined the bunch. And many others helping and providing support. It had an amazing run, updated colors, masses of icons, wallpapers, etc. And then just like that everything stopped.........................

Last word was from Koveleski in March about it possibly starting up again. But other than that nothing.

Now we have ICS and the Galaxy Nexus and many other devices released or yet to be released. All are looking more and more promising to open the gates once again the the community. We have CM9 and (my personal fav) AOKP, MIUI, and so many more great ROMs with great dev teams. One common thing that many of them share is the abilty to use the Theme Manager. I am asking all of you to cast your vote and show you love for an amazing theme!!! Show the DE team that you still want and love their work and want to see it revitalized again!!!

I am hoping that they will jump back into DE again and update the wallpapers (some Unicorn on DE action *giggidy*), update the icons, widgets, checkboxes, everything. I want them to go deep into the UI and change as much as they can again. To touch the very core of Android and rock it once again. I hope my words do not fall on deaf ears and that through many of us our cries will be heard through the forums and Dark Edge rises once again!!!

Thank you to Xeudoxus, REALigion, Koveleski, Anondrian, MAD Industries, Newton122189, Frost, HybridTracer, RobbieCrash, and many more for their fantastic work and here is to seeing Dark Edge again.

Wow this was a nice theme, I cannot believe I never heard of it.


My time is limited now-a-days but let me know what a good phone/rom would be to get it ported/redesigned and ill make it happen. I cannot promise a time frame but I agree it needs to be brought back to life.

Personally I was thinking the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the AOKP rom. But would a Theme Chooser/Engine apk be easier since porting may not be necessary? And it could always be updated as needed (icons, new wallpapers, etc).

Whats nice about DarkEdge is while it is a blacked out type theme it still has some color injected here and there. I'd like to see it come to the Theme Chooser and if possible with some colored Notification bar icons(wifi/battery/BT/signal/text/gmail/etc). There are plenty of blacked out themes but something with colored icons/settings/toggles etc I would purchase in a heartbeat.

For it to be as complete as possible it would have to be non-theme chooser and I'd say the most popular rom and phone right now are AOKP and the GNex. It gets updated constantly though so the theme would have to be updated often.

A theme chooser version would mean everyone could use it and rom updates wouldn't matter, but of course there will be some parts it won't theme.

dat trade off

Either way, do want!

Dark edge is def in top 5 of fav themes ever for my d1 along with black glass and bgill55 themes from team chaos, to fully appreciate the work of this theme i dont believe theme chooser would do it justice i still have and use the DE icon pack i just hope if it does come back it wont be just a one rom exclusive, and hope there's ppl out there smarter than me that could get permissions to port it to different roms and bring this theme back with full force
