Android Black Market Theme

I don´t know about you, but I don´t quite like the new market even if the change was necessary. As soon as the new Android market arrived to our devices, an inverted black theme appeared on our forums. This was the work done by XDA member ecsnead69, which is beautiful and offers full UI views, just as the white original one. The member mentions that his inverted theme is NOT the pirate app and be sure you don´t have a...

XDA member yourfriendwayned created a skin for the keyboard of your Droid X to fit other dark themes. One nice addition is...

This is a theme I found over in the Nexus forum. It originally came from a collection of Desire themes...and was ported to the Nexus. Now it is...

Circle Percentage Battery Indicator for Rooted Android Devices

That's why XDA member kubino99 made a How-To guide to install the above mentioned indicator, which includes a direct download from the XDA server for both Eclair (2.1) and Froyo (2.2). There are some additional notes which are...
