Application – Faster Darker Theme for Nokia N9 – MeeGo Harmattan

Introducing Faster Darker Theme for the N9!
This affects all apps including Conversations, Mail and Phone. It also includes my dark Clock theme and Faster transitions.
This installs as a separate theme which you can change to using Theme Changer.
Please report any bugs or requests here.
WARNING: This still under development. Any new version released MAY be untested and MAY have unforseen affects on your device. Use at your own risk.

BACKUP, Download, extract the folder in the zip file into “/usr/share/themes/” on your N9. Ensure the files are in “/usr/share/themes/fasterdarker/”. Reboot and enjoy!
Install with Terminal:
1. Connect N9 to PC via USB Mass storage.
2. Extract the folder in zip file to root directory. You should have the folder “fasterdarker” in the root folder, not in Documents.
3. Unplug USB, open the Terminal app and type: (Press ENTER at end of each line)

[enter root password, default is "rootme"]
cp -R /home/user/MyDocs/fasterdarker/ /usr/share/themes/
