Switch Between Holo Light and Dark with Xposed

Despite how many of us may wish to forget about Honeycomb, Android 3.x was notable in a number of ways. One of these is without a doubt Google’s unveiling of its nearly ubiquitous Holo UI. Since then, Holo has undergone substantial revision, and is now a major highlight of 4.x devices.

Thanks to Holo and third party developer participation, we now have an incredibly cohesive UI on our mobile devices. But as much as we like seeing Holo in its various iterations, it’s not always perfect. For example, sometimes we’d rather have an application that displays natively in Holo Light instead show up in Holo Dark or vice versa. Luckily, XDA Senior Member hamzahrmalik offers up a great Xposed module to do precisely that.

The aptly titled Holo Themer allows any user with Xposed Framework install to force between Holo Dark and Light on any application. In addition, it also allows users to enable Holo Light with a dark Action Bar. Naturally, this only works with applications that already use a Holo theme of some kind. However, that is pretty much almost any application nowadays.

If you’ve wanted to achieve a different look by switching between Holo themes, head over to the module thread and give Holo Themer a shot,
