Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far.

Android Black Market Theme
I don´t know about you, but I don´t quite like the new market even if the change was necessary. As soon as the new Android market arrived to our devices, an inverted black theme appeared on our forums. This was the work done by XDA member ecsnead69, which is beautiful and offers full UI views, just as the white original one. The member mentions that his inverted theme is NOT the pirate app and be sure you don´t have a vending app in \data\app. If you do, the theme will not work.
Let the member know about your experience with the theme by leaving your feedback.

This is the latest version, 3.0.27… Just got it today…..

Next, download the file for your phone.. I have verified the first to work for the D1 and the Fascinate. And the Thunderbolt zip has also been verified. The others are blank zips for that particular phone.. if they work for you, PLEASE post so that I can verify that they work….
Once downloaded, move the zip to the root of your SD card and flash in recovery, Enjoy!!!!
