Detox Theme Ported To HTC Evo
The HTC Evo is one of the best devices ever made, so it seems fair to have one of the best themes for it. Originally created by XDA member cubanaso and ported by XDA member Konikub, it manages to give the Evo a very clean white look for people who want something more simplistic.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
