    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. :

    Sorry Riche101.

    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

    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.
