Issues & Support  - 
 
For some reason, after some point of time the SystemUI is no longer 'themeable'. This has been confirmed by many themers over here.

ThemeConfig.java, I believe seems to be where the configuration is taking place (May be the source of the bug??? Not sure...)

Here is the log part that indicates the bug  (Instead of my theme's overlay, system overlay is passed on to the systemui and systemui.navbar):

Log portion:
----------------------------------------------------------
/system_process I/ActivityManager﹕ Config changes=480 {1.0 404mcc24mnc en_US ldltr sw360dp w598dp h335dp 480dpi nrml land finger -keyb/v/h -nav/h s.40 themeResource=themes:{
default=overlay:pixkart.cm.levo
iconPack:pixkart.cm.levo, 
fontPkg:pixkart.cm.levo, 
com.android.systemui=overlay:system
com.android.systemui.navbar=overlay:system
}}
----------------------------------------------------------
Complete log for reference: http://goo.gl/bFgDyo

Thanks for your efforts...keeps us themers breathing!

Levo v2.0 beta4 was released on 28 March. Beta testers can update to this version right now. This update implements cloud updates for themed packages. This helps me to update the packages without pushing it through play store and also updates can be pushed as and when I'm done with a package...sort of incremental/delta updates on a live basis.

Changelog
- Cloud updates for fonts/packages (Please do a clean install due to this)
- New Fonts: Lato
- Removed stock stat icons option
- Reworked some icons (Mobile, signal, indicators) etc
- Removed presets option(under development)

Hello #Levo users, I shalt not forsake thee...Here are some screenshots of the CM12 version of the dashboard and Settings app. You guys will be able to customize the theme colors, fonts and even the packages you want (or don't) to be themed.

Can't give a release date yet, but the project may be ready for a beta release in the next week or so...Cheers!
