Custom Theme Friday: Glowing Green for Android Open Kang Project

Custom ROMs are great for having a ton of extra features and abilities, but what about when you want to change the look of your entire handset. That’s where custom themes take over. This particular one called Glowing Green, comes from developer Kevin3328 and it will make your Galaxy Nexus stand out bright green in a sea of blues.

Turning all system controls and apps into a nice bright shade of green will be perfect for those people who celebrate St. Patrick’s Day throughout the year. And with the greenest of all the holidays coming up, now would be a good time to flash it. Below we have installation instructions and the zip files for you to download and install. 

Note: We know Milestone 4 has been released , but the theme has not yet been updated. Bookmark the forum page so you can flash the theme later once it has been updated if you wish. Thanks.

Instructions for installation:

AOKP Build 25 | AOKP Build 26 | AOKP Build 27 | Milestone 3

  1. Download the zip file that matches which AOKP build you are running.
  2. Place zip file on your phone’s storage.
  3. Reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
  4. Create nandroid backup immediately.
  5. Locate zip file on storage and install.
  6. Reboot and enjoy.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them below and we will do our best to help you out.

    Iam new to this stuff. How do you install this file. I have stock nexus. Whatvis clockwork? I need some step by step help

  • guest

    Just downloaded the one for AOKP 27 and flashed it in recovery now I’m in a bootloop. What do I need to do to get out of it?

  • jab416171

    I know it’s not your doing, but builds 26 and 27 link to the same file. Has somebody successfully flashed this on build 27?

  • ddevito

    I don’t know why Google decided to drop Green and go with Cyan for the theme color in ICS. I loved green for Android. I hope Jelly Bean brings it back.

  • Awww man! I really want to flash this but I just flashed Milestone 4.. I hope they have an update soon!

  • me

    and people complain about blur yikes

  • Can we please get a Raging Red theme?

  • ryanallaire

    I’m getting tired of going on this site cuz all i see anymore in nexus this and nexus that, what the hell about all the other phones out there???

    • frankandsimple

      no kidding.. and the Gnex is not even a droid! 

      I come here usually hoping to see something new on the razr.. or at least other of the android phones like rezound etc.. but these guys are obsessed with nexus. 

      • Towelie420

        First of all, the droid brand is dead. Its become nothing but locked down Motorola garbage with blur crapped all over it.
        Secondly, I accidentally clicked like on your comment when I was going for the reply button, so don’t think you earned that one.

      The development community for the nexus is simply much larger than other phones. Not only that but kellex also has a galaxy nexus as well as the fact that he promoted and posted a lot of rumors of the phone itself prior to release. A lot of members on this site have a galaxy nexus now after upgrading from the OG droid or any other phone and it’s just a really great and developer friendly phone. 

      • Daniel Simpson

        Galaxy Nexus was the only real successor to the OG Droid from Verizon.

    • me

      android guys.com it covers all phones.only downside it covers all carriers.bu at least it covers all verizon phones.even ones that can make phone calls.Still though droidlife is always the first to tell you what updates are right around the corner

  • frankandsimple

    Why is the development community filled with themers who would gloriously flunk any visual design class? 
    yikes! every time something like this pops up. It does no justice to their counterparts.. the wonderful code writers. 

    • Daniel Simpson

      So true.  A lot of people make some hideous themes.  I’m still looking into how to actually theme so I can fix a lot of this ugly crap I see all of the time.

  • mustbepbs

    If it was a little more tasteful without the neon green, I’d be okay. But the neon glow kills this theme for me.

  • spark it up

    are we talking 420 GREEN ?

  • i feel i am in the minority, but i liked the gingerbread green.   the retina burning green…not so much.  i would love to see a gingerbread theme on the nexus.

    inb4 do it yourself

  • how would you get it back to the default after St. Patty’s day is over?

    • D3fault121

      Make a backup and restore?

  • Ah i want this on my RAZR. stupid motorola and your locked bootloaders…

    • Eraursls84

      Why would a locked bootloader stop you? I’m running AOKP with a custom on my RAZR. I think someone just had a failed attempt at trolling.

    The only thing I don’t like about this is the damn Obama ad on the sidebar of DL.

    • Towelie420

      November can’t come soon enough

    • Daniel Simpson

      I know right?  Can’t we just elect him right now instead of waiting for so long?

  • Cory Ward

    what build would you recommend?  I’ve been on Liquid and have been loving it… but now it’s time to give AOKP a try

    • Always pick the most recent. Go with Milestone 4 or Build 27. 🙂

      • Cory Ward


  • He’s actively working on Milestone 4 compatibility: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/17477-glowing-green-v20-available-for-aokp-m3-aokp-build-27-here/page__view__findpost__p__538505

    meh. too reminiscent of GB for me

  • What about for Milestone4?

  • Yeoman Wassup

    2nd greenest of all holidays*
    I’m sorry, but the greenest of all holidays happens in April.

    • Hah no comment. I was thinking of nationally recognized holidays 😛

      • I don’t think you know what he was talking about then.

        • lacokanostra

          I think he does that’s why he replied. You are so burnt out because of the Mary J you missed the point of Tim’s comment.

          • Good Sir, after my third bowl of the morning, even I know what Tim was getting at.

            It doesn’t make people stupid. Stupid people just happen to smoke it.

    • ostensibly

      Earth day?

    • Fake Patty’s 2012!!!!!!!!!!

  • Azndan4

    Romans work is so much better than droid theorys work.

    • not really sure how those are even comparable…

      • Azndan4

        Easy. Roman comes up with original work. Droid theory doesn’t.

        • mustbepbs

          DT has always worked amazingly hard at what he does. I suggest you do some research and shut your mouth.

          • Kevinbkid

            Milestone 4 is in the works.. I am adding a ton of customization to this theme for m4

          • Kevinbkid

            Lot of trolls on here.. if u want an extension of ics go grab one of the 10 million themes that have been made.. this is kevin3328 by the way.. op updated for m4 on rootz

  • Keith Sumner

    Ug lee

    • I’m going to have to agree. What happened to clean themes? Most themes looks like a goth kid got ahold of gimp and colorized everything they can find.

      • Keith Sumner

        I can’t stand themes with EXTREME! colors.

      • Azn_Android

        Agreed.. I personally am runnning lucid atop AOKP and it looks great! It’s a nice theme with clear, white, and black themes throughout. It seems to be the most neutral theme for AOKP.
