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

Continue on to the application thread

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work?
