Video: Installing Full DarkEdge Theme

DarkEdge has been taking the theming world by storm and until now there really hasn’t been a good video tutorial out there.  The DroidForums.net team has put together 2 videos which walk you through the entire full theme installation process and have actually done a pretty nice job.

Prepare to lose almost 19 minutes of your life for the sake of DarkEdge…

    This theme is really nice. It did take me a while to completely figure it out the first time. Although great, it has too many steps to be fully installed. I've made a nandroid backup of every color so I can just go back to whatever one I want. But still it is really great looking. Top notch!

  • andy

    do i have to be rooted to do this if i have to i can root and can i make a nandroid right know if i decide i dont want it any more. and is it a good idea to just use the run program thing

    It was pretty funny when the guy said if you don't know how to do a backup then I don't want you installing my theme.Jerk

      where did u get that wallpaper? Looks sweet.

      • maizekidstill

        Malibo wallpaper app from the market. I think it was in the abstract section
        . I could send it to you if you would like

        • evltwn

          found it…thanks.

    • Mathew

      Are you using Helix 1.4 on there? Also, where did you get that clock??

      • maizekidstill

        Yeah the donate was well worth it. The clock came with the theme in the
        widget area.

    For those out there running Bugless Beast, I have noticed that I have a navigation icon in my app drawer. The one that looks like a cursor. It says “Navigation” I thought my “car home” stock app was the only navigation app that came with Droid. I didn't install this from anywhere so I am wondering if it came with BB. Just curious. Its kinda cool, just doesn't have the other options like the stock “car home ” app. Thanks in advance.

      The navigation icon is part of the last maps update.

    • lakerzz

      I'm pretty sure it came with the recent google maps update…

  • mkedroid

    Not that everyone here cant follow directions, but that video almost put me in a coma. Not only was it too complicated, but it was soooo boring and sooo long. These guys should stick to developing and not video making. I have searched high and low for Droid video tutorials, and the videos here done by Kellex are the best. Most clear, short to the point, a true follow along video. We all surely appreciate the effort taken to post these instructions, but those guys are no Droid-life. com, Peace!

  • maizekidstill

    Yeah the video is extremely complex, watched the part on metamorph for icons like twenty times, still did not fully understand. Just decided to instal team chaos's theme over cyanogen 5.0.6.2 and it looks great. They really did a great job on this. The theme is intense!

    • mkedroid

      what does that theme look like?

      • maizekidstill

        I putting pictures on right now

        • mkedroid

          Cool. Thanks!

  • rizzet

    Wow…..I want my 19 minutes back! lol

    Too much!

  • http://twitter.com/wmsco1 wmsco1

    Too complex not worth it plus I like to see more eye candy like tat now that would be a rom to GO FOR! Most roms we have now are same old same old no changing of interface just same

  • http://twitter.com/droidcountry Chris

    Curious if you are still using this yourself kellex?

    I personally ended up going back to BB pretty quickly due to speed (despite being pretty fast) and compatibility issues with some of my favorite programs (Hootsuite being the biggest complaint).

  • Jael Fernandez

    not for nothing but your video tutorial are a lot better! Did it last nite at 3am and had to replay it several times but great rom like the blue and pink!!! But like i said YOU ROCK KELLEX!!!

    • kellex

      Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.

      The devs behind this have informed me that the process will be simplified which is the reason I've held off on a tutorial for this.

      • evltwn

        Any idea when the process will be simplified? I am running the DE theme over BB (team chaos) but it seems that some of the app icons don't like the theme I guess you could say. They are much smaller and don't look like the same icon as they were when I was just running BB with the nextheme. Any ideas? Do I need to run the Dark Edge Icon Pack through Metamorph?

    Is this just a theme or is also a full ROM with it? I haven't watched the videos yet because I'm stuck at work.

    • kellex

      Sort of a tricky answer for that…if you install the full theme, it does indeed have a base ROM that you start with.

  • Sad Panda

    Having to wait for them to update certain apps when the apps have updates available in order to use the updated version of the app (mind twister), kind of makes this long process not worth it.

    • kellex

      I hear ya on that one.

      • andrew401

        kellex whos kernels can i use with this? New Era is my base ROM but I can tell the nandroid effected my build it looks like so Im not sure what I should do

  • Trug

    Great Theme!
