Release: DarkEdge Themes from Mrbobrowitz and Team Chaos

Spending 2 hours trying to put a video together on how to install the full DarkEdge is probably the most frustrating thing on the planet.  Luckily, many of the themers in the Droid world decided to attack the DE theme and release it for you all, making this process 10000000000% easier.

*Note 1* – On Mrbobrowitz’s version, I was able to come from Cyanogen 5.0.6.2 without wiping data and cache, but seemed to be missing some of the theme.  On the Team Chaos theme, I came from Bugless Beast V1.0 and was able to apply it without wiping data and cache and everything appeared to be included.

First up is the Mrbobrowitz version:

Instructions…

1.  Download the theme zip file:  SteamDarkEdge.zip (alt link)
2.  Copy the file to the root of your SD card.
3.  Open ROM Manager and choose “Install ROM from SD Card.”
4.  Scroll down and choose the SteamDarkEdge.zip file.
5.  Make a backup if you don’t have a recent one.  Skip “wipe data and cache.”  Hit “OK.”
6.  Phone reboots, applies the magic and BAM!  Done.  Enjoy!

*Note 2* – Not all of the themed icons were ported over, so I had to apply the DE-Icon Pack theme in MetaMorph.  File here.

And second is the Team Chaos version:

Instructions…

1.  Download the theme zip file:  Team_Chaos_Dark_edge.zip (alt link)
2.  Copy the file to the root of your SD card.
3.  Open ROM Manager and choose “Install ROM from SD Card.”
4.  Scroll down and choose the Team_Chaos_Dark_edge.zip file.
5.  Make a backup if you don’t have a recent one.  Skip “wipe data and cache.”  Hit “OK.”
6.  Phone reboots, applies the magic and BAM!  Done.  Enjoy!

    I’ve noticed a significant increase in speed with this over the standard simply stunning theme. Apps drawer loads MUCH faster. Phone is overall more responsive.
