Apk file size: 5.6 MB


***NOT FOR CM!!!***

Disclaimer: You must use a ROM that fully supports Layers/RRO theming!!!

MUST BE ROOTED and have the Layers Manager app!

*Most layers should work on hdpi to xxxhdpi phones that are using compatible ROMs with Layers.

For more information on the Layers project, go to the XDA thread for Official Layers and Bitsyko Apps at!

Also, check out the Official Webpage and Forum for Layers at!

Read the instructions within the plugin before applying layers!!!



- Make sure you have flashed the Themeable Hangouts zip in recovery FIRST before you apply the Themeable Hangouts Layer in this theme!

- If you don't have the Themeable Hangouts flashed in recovery, choose the regular Hangouts layer from the main list (it has grey bg and black text still).

- If you have flashed the themeable version of Hangouts, tick that option from the main list and untick the regular Hangouts option to apply it.


- If you use the switch to apply all layers, please make sure you untick the Play Music Transparent Widget BG option from the main list if you don't want the transparent widget overlay.

- If you want the Play Music Transparent Widget, make sure you untick the Play Music Layer in main list and leave the Play Music Transparent Widget overlay ticked in the main list.

- When and if you want to install a different overlay, you need to uninstall the original layer first and then install the different overlay.

Nexus 6 Would rate 5 stars if would remove the stock navbar from the system ui apk so you can change the navbar.

Wow much improved Still some white on white action going on though recent menu when choosing where to pick an image from.

Ritvik Divanji

Freaking love it! I have one main issue though: when any app gives me a Heads up Notification, I am not able to see the text. Other than that I really love it!

Farman arif

Bullshit.. Not working.. Done everything right..

Armando Rojas León

Great The best one.. Keep it up

Jeremy Brantley

Awesome! This is by far my favorite dark layers theme! Great job! Thanks for the many updates.

Russell Nichols

Great layers theme! This dev & these great lookn themes r what brought me back to RRO! Awesome job what you're doing for Android!

Syed Tahir

Awesome. The best layers theme!

Rehman Musa

White on white dialogs. There are some components that remain with white backgrounds and the "OK" or "cancel" clicks are more white which makes the dialogs white on white. The in call dialer also gives black number colors rather than white whereas the alphabets are properly white on black.

Adam Caine

Great! Awesome theme and a great contributor to this great project, Layers, thanks so much for all your efforts.. People like this guy are what makes android great!

steven chun

Awesome Only things missing for me are YouTube and aosp messenger....

Di Lu

Very good layer One of the best black layer themes, nothing really beat 000000. Keep up the good work.

Chris Kelly

Perfect I've had layers on my phone for two months and still was downloading apk's and it the hard way. This is exactly how I theme my phone. I also like the fact that Google inbox is already themed. Great job.

Russell Nichols

Great layers theme! This dev & these great lookn themes r what brought me back to RRO! Awesome job what you're doing for Android!

Jacob Kellenbenz Dupont

Love it Works perfect on my Nexus 6 running chroma


So close to perfect though has some issues with Chrome Website Menus not showing text and some other areas of black text on black bg. Hope it gets fixed.

Chris Steckroth

It's great, however, needs some work. Improved battery life with AMOLED screen isn't worth having a phone that's barely useable. Pros: Black theme saves battery tremendously Cons: Black on black text plagues so many facets--Google Now stock prices don't show up, drop down menus in chrome, etc. Guy Fawkes background in outgoing calls without contact image needs to go. Google Play Music play button disappears in widget. I understand that you can't test everything. But these things have been brought up many times. Support, not just development.

audrion bird

Black on black crime Getting a lot of black on black with popups like the reboot menu. Makes it impossible to read, great theme otherwise please fix

John Sinnott

Nice Layer, but black text on black background on AOSP Browser menu!

Bryan Bennett

Omg There's ALOT of black on black text everywhere on my Nexus 6P with this layer. Settings, playstore, Google messenger etc. Not usable. Once fixed, will donate. For now, uninstalled.

Benjamin Mills

Meh Big white strip across top of hangouts blocks video chat options and recipient.

TarasB B.

Play Store apps rating (stars) is NOT visible - black *** on black background. And please, add the (AOSP MMS) for those who uses Zero gapps w/o google crap like Hangouts etc. ps. Very warm thanks for the black Nova Launcher Settings!!

Howard Bamber

It's.... Black! Looks great especially with so many apps giving a black choice now. Not found any black on black writing yet, but still new. Love what I see though.

Ibeakanma Godfrey

Hoping it works. I'm rating in advance. Rating will improve if it works.

D Teichman

I really like this theme, it is one of my favorite black themes for my phone. I see that it is discontinued, so I guess there is no way to remove that rediculous Guido Fawkes image for the default phone contact image.

Arslan Qureshi

Glowie Super-Amoled <3 Mind blasting love it!!!!! Sent from Galaxy S2 Using SlimLP

Jon Alder

Please Add support for Snapchat (:

David Clarke

Great Black Theme Working great on N6 AOSiP ROM. Only issue for me is black on black on the power/reboot menu screens.

Logan Pence

Awesome theme for 6.0 Keep up the good work!!

Narendra Latthe

Problems Android M stock After using USSD code dialer stopped working and in app drawer text color and and drawer background color is same, so I can't see app names and in contacts I can't see names please fix it, This theme is amazing thank you :)

Jerry Z

Classiest of the Dark Themes If you use dark layers alwith amoled this is the I've found. A few light on light & dark on dark glitches, but less than any other & less glitches with each update.

M. Jundy Al Fatah

Like this layer :) I like black and my theme looks so dark and cool. But i got my dialer fc and message still have default theme.

Rob HighlanderZA

Very nice - like the darkness. Contacts groups is faulty though, white text on white background! Please fix that and it'll get 5 stars.

Tj Nguyen

Great theme but... There's some white text on white background issues. Snapchat is one and the lockscreen is another.

Bonny George

Hey nice but Problem with WhatsApp... Can't see some options as they are blacked out,please check

Jose Castillo

Love this theme but Several third party apps like pocket cast text is black On black Edit: replying back to developer, inbox has white on white font, and you're right about an app that's not on the list (pocketcast) has black On black font... Truly a beauty though of a theme.

Kyle Ferguson

Looks awesome on my Nexus 5! BUT! I have had the same issue on 3 separate roms, many 3 dot menus throughout different apps and the system are completely black, cant read anything in them. I either have to guess or uninstall the theme and then reinstall later

Gabriel Salgado

Needs some fixes but overall best pitch black theme Please correct font color in whatsapp, Facebook messenger, instagram and twitter. Everything else is perfect, good job

Gio Lesnar

Love it!! This my first time using Layers Manager and i must say its better then the cm theme engine! This the best black theme i ever used,id like a themed facebook n messenger , but other then that,this theme is going to stick with me for quite sometime.

Debanka Chanda

It messes up with the google now launcher I wouldn't have rated 2 stars but it just messes up the google now launcher with the vertical scrolling app drawer.please do rectify that.The low rating is only to draw your attention.

Stoyan Mihov

This is awesome! One thing I have noticed though, I just used gmail and when I select "reply all" - all email addresses are black and I can not see them.

Seth McGinnis

Great theme/layer ! The best black layer made imo. :)

David Hayes

Nice Nice dark layers theme.

Vin Bitz

Amazing Dark Theme

chuck miles

Kim Oluyor

Felix Villegas
