welcome to dark material // akzent, a new version of dark material with dark material colors as accents!
ATTENTION: If you’re on MM6.0 with CMTE (CM13, DU) AND you dirty flash, MAKE SURE YOU REVERT STOCK THEME BEFORE YOU UPDATE. Or you SHOULD expect at most THREE soft reboots before your phone works again! This is due to dirty flash theme recompiles that get corrupt (CM side).
Welcome to the first and original dark material UI available for the CyanogenMod 12/13 Theme Engine. With this theme, you can grasp that Lollipop Material look whilst not blinding your eyes as you enjoy all the eyecandy animations!
WHY “DARK MATERIAL”?
To understand why this theme doesn’t follow Google’s traditional “Material Dark” design with dark teal and/or blue grey, I will briefly explain.
This theme wasn’t based on Google’s Material Style, but was mainly influenced by the “Tinted Status Bar” mod’s results, where it completely made the action bar into one fused item. I really liked this design, which made the system more minimal as it had two layers to look at, rather than 3 (Action Bar Primary, Action Bar Primary Dark (status bar darkened color) and the fragment layer (the interacting area)). The fact that I named this theme “Dark Material” over “Material Dark” was because I wanted to depict a dark, physical metamorphic rock – “slate”, and it’s color. As the color scheme of this theme is mainly dark (black, grey and white text), I added the word “Dark” in front of my interpretation of “Material” hence the title “Dark Material”. Themes that follow Google’s Material Dark, should show up as “Material Dark” to ensure consistency (see Google keyboard settings for reference).
