Get Your Android L Fix with a Comprehensive Android L Theme
This past week was quite a frenzy for Android fans, with Google I/O bringing a number of announcements regarding Android and its expansion to our wrists, cars, and living rooms. Perhaps the most significant was Google’s unveiling of Android L. The L release is slated to bring a rather significant departure in the Android UI, taking us from transitioning from Holo (first seen in Android 3.0 Honeycomb) to the new Material Design.
The Android L Developer Preview was launched for the Nexus 5 or a Nexus 7 (2013) last week. But while the rest of us twiddle our thumbs in anticipation of its launch in the Fall, there are some things we can do to give our device the L look, such as installing the apps extracted from the L system dump.
If that isn’t enough, XDA Member PixCM has gone ahead and assembled an Android L theme. This theme, which is compatible with the CM11 Theme engine, completes the Android L look with the new boot animation, font, wallpapers, system bars, ringtones, icons and lots more.
Head on over to the theme thread to get started, and stay updated about Android L news by following our coverage.
