Anyone know if there is a Black Gmail apk or mod available for the S4
Look on play store for team black out app
Edit: just checked and gmail is blacked out
Sadly did not work
Here you go Riche101.
A few "weasel words" before you rush off and install it. I have not tried it yet myself and would be trying it on a Note 3 (my hobbit tablet) not a SGS4 once I can do a Nandroid. So I have no idea if it works or causes problems. Use at your own risk. It has been AVG virus scanned by me though. :
Not installing giving up on idea
I'll not bother with a Nandroid at lunchtime and try and install it then. I'd like a black Gmail as well. The white one looks awful.
.. Am sure there will be a way or mod soon, I hope team blackout looked promising.
Maybe if i do an uber slim rom next time and add all gapps myself
have you tried backing up the original gmail app
ie: in system/app change gmail.apk to gmail.bak
copy over the new (blacked out) gmail.apk and set permissions to rw-r-r then reboot phone
surely this would now become the default gmail app
every system apk ive ever changed has worked this way
I was just doing it the way that was suggested
just searched xda and found their thread
maybe more luck with this link lol
Team Black Out Presents...The Dark Side...Blacked Out Apps [NEW Kitkat] Open Betas - xda-developers
You star now have black bbm and gmail now to sort out the rest
A black Phandroid would be sweet
OMG Black Facebook drool its so nice esp for pics
By phandroid, I assume you mean the Android Forums App
This already has a "dark mode" option
The Android Forums app and the Tapatalk app (both can be used to participate in these forums) offer black mode in the app settings.
I actually mean https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phandroid.droidpress&hl=en&referrer=utm_source%3Dgoogle%26utm_medium%3Dorganic%26utm_term%3Dphandroid++google+play this one The Phandroid news app its been my app of preference untill now
Thanks iT0mm0, worked like a charm. Used this black Gmail. apk just as you suggested. I've uploaded this one that works on my Note 3 (The hobbit tablet) (SM-N9005)
