For those who somehow don’t know, CyanogenMod is the most famous and most used custom ROM in the world. With dozens of supported devices, a dedicated development staff, and over a million loyal fans, one would be hard pressed to say anything bad about them. Even though the official builds are for dozens of devices, dozens more are supported with unofficial builds from developers outside of the CM Team. One of the staples of CyanogenMod 7, the Gingerbread edition, was the use of the theme chooser. With hundreds of themes available for all CyanogenMod 7 users, the theme chooser became one of the most popular ROM features ever. Now, CyanogenMod 9 and CyanogenMod 10 have it and the themes are leaking through.
CyanogenMod 10 Theme Chooser
Right now, stable themes are few and far between as themers learn the new ways of Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. However, for those sick of the drab blue theme that reigns on ICS and Jelly Bean, there are a few stable themes that won’t change the icons or make something look crazy but it will at least change the color of everything to something you like more. Currently, the colors available are:
- (Different shade of) Blue
Elementary, yes, but simply having the option to change colors can mean a lot to some users. They come in the form of applications that must be downloaded and installed like any other APK. The pre-requisites are that you, of course, must be running CyanogenMod 10—as these are Jelly Bean themes—which means you must be rooted and have a custom recovery in order to flash CyanogenMod 10 if you don’t have it. All the themes are available in the Google Play Store for download and include add-ons and wallpaper packs to help customize your phone even further. It’s only a matter of time before CyanogenMod 10 theme chooser themes come tumbling out at a breakneck pace.
