Android Gmail 2.3.5 Blacked Out
We saw recently an article about G+ app being blacked out. Now, thanks to XDA member ecsnead69 we have the same effect for the Gmail application. By installing this app, you not only get a different color look on your devices but also you will improve your battery life as black in background will consume less resources, although this is only true for certain types of screens. The developer mentions that it is likely to work on both rooted and non rooted devices, just be sure to uninstall updates for gmail before installing.
Please leave us your feedback and let us know if it worked on your device.

Gmail 2.3.5.. Blacked Out!!
Ok, here is it.. just pushed last night and already inverted! The major part of this was done by B-boy, I just added the finishing touches and did a few smali edits..
Instructions for ROOTED users…..
uninstall updates for gmail
download the app
navigate to app
select and install…..enjoy
if this doesn’t work, then you will need to use RE, rename gmail.apk in /system/app to gmail.apk.old and then REBOOT, if you do not reboot it won’t work!!
Now return to the app, select it, and install… enjoy

But it'll be a long time...
